Instamix: Work-Filled Memorial Day Weekend

Hey everyone! Wow, am I exhausted. As mentioned last week, I worked all weekend and had little break time in between enough to grab light lunch and dinner here and there. I hope you all had a great 3-day break though. Anyways, trying to blog before my bed time, so let me just jump right into weekend updates.

  • Had Mandu for one more night of petsitting and mommy LindaLinda stopped by Friday night to pick him up. She also came bearing yummy treats of her homemade double chocolate chip cookies and macarons from my fave place in Bethesda, Toute de Sweet. Ah, she knows me too well – thanks girl! =)
  • Then Saturday, had a wedding in Baltimore at the Walters Museum – beautiful couple and beautiful venue — couldn’t have asked for a great wedding shoot. Who doesn’t love shoe shots, right? Gorgeous!
  • Another wedding Sunday but this time shooting with another photographer for his Indian Wedding at the Ritz-Carlton near Pentagon Mall. Everything was beautiful and of course colorful (I mean, look at that cake!), not to mention a definite fun crowd who loves to dance. I also was introduced to an Indian drink called Mango Lassi — who would’ve thought a mix of mango and yogurt wold be so tasty — a new fave of mine now.
  • Definitely slept in Monday, woke up for a light jog before hanging out with hubs for a bit. Then it was time to head to Arlington for an engagement shoot of a friend. Anything involving cupcakes in the shoot is always a top favorite of mine. =) I had so much fun with her and her fiance and ended the night with them at my fave location for yummy hot pot and butterbeer.

Now time for bed and up early tomorrow for work. It will be a short week though, even shorter since I’ll be leaving for LA Thursday night through Monday to attend the Generation Beauty conference hosted by none other than Michelle Phan and her team at Ipsy. I received a complimentary ticket to my surprise few weeks ago and it was definitely a great excuse to meet up with some folks there and, of course, eat.

Be sure to follow my instagram for up-to-date happenings while I’m there. It will be a much-needed mini getaway after this month-long back-to-back weddings every weekend.

Thanks for reading and chat soon!
