Did you think I fell off the planet? Did you think I was tooling around the universe with Zaphod Beeblebrox?


Just kiddin'. I know you didn't. It's all good. I was totes busy. 

We spent Thanksgiving with my husband's family and attended a wedding the following Saturday. Leaving the kid with his cousins at Nana and Papa's house. 

First overnight away from home for him. And me. And Brian. 

I think, in Milo's mind, it was the best weekend ever. He had kids to play with EVERY DAY. Plus...well you know how it goes at Nana's house. What happens there stays there and whatnot-haha. 

Massive thanks to my in-laws for all pitching in to keep Milo alive and happy. 
As a thank-you to them, and as a gift to you all; I present this photo of Milo with his cousins. 
 How much do you love it when you tell three kids to make funny faces and they ALL MAKE A REALLY FUNNY FACE?! Love it. 

We attended the wedding of a friend at the divinely stunning Cultural Center at the old Public Library in the city. I was pretty focused on socializing and not on taking photos, so most of them are crap, but trust me-the surroundings were just beautiful.
At the reception we were seated with our friends under a mosaic dome with the names of poets going across the arch we were sitting under. 
That's a fairly wretched description and I'll work on it. But let's just agree that it was beautiful. 
 We stood under this and had drinks after the ceremony. Its really hard to take a photo of the ceiling while you are standing on a tile floor in four-inch heels and a short dress. 
So chic. 
At some point during the cocktail hour I asked Dana if my eye makeup was too much. We had applied our faces in her hotel room and the lighting was REDONK. So bad. I kept putting blush on, and that's sometimes not good. 
I was a little self conscious of the gilded eyeshadow up to my eyebrows and the black eyeliner all over the place. 
My best friend just said, 
'Althea. You wanted to dye your hair PINK. No, your EYE MAKEUP looks just fine.'
Hah. She's funny. And right. 

Yeah, I know. This photo is terrible. It was freezing out, but we all drunkenly wanted cigarettes. Notice how I am easily the giantess in the group. Fricken...short people...
I do happen to really like the chicks in this photo. Good people, them. Really good. 
 Also, I am not trying to do anything dirty to the woman on the left. I had Brian's jacket on and she snuggled in. 
We all had a spectacular weekend. Milo had a blast and so did his parents.

  1. I love that place! Joey's graduation ceremony was there. Spoiled art school kids...but I used to go to that level with the mosaic dome on afternoons when almost no one was in there, back in 03 and 04, during some anxious times. I took that German girl there too, if you remember my mentioning her...
