home sweet home.

hello...i've missed you!
boy, what an exhausting trip. we were constantly on our feet from 6am - 9pm, three days straight, and the constant downpours made our trip challenging in so many ways. i actually had to extend my trip one more day, plus, i was supposed to fly back again tomorrow. luckily someone else is able to go. i never thought this would be possible, but i maxxxed out my 8GB memory card, and i'm now left with the task of sorting and filing 3,000+ photos taken among three cameras.
i must say the worst part of the trip wasn't the rain, but the security checkpoint on the return home. to make things easy, i take off all my jewelry beforehand and put it in my bag. i got stuck in the lane with the full body scanner...which i passed. but, my bags didn't. so, i got an additional pat down and a bag search due to some "strange" objects they detected.
guess what it was??
my friggen la dama (ysl arty inspired) ring,
and f21 pyramid bracelets.
maybe the scanner was smart enough to detect a knock off, hehe.

anyways, i hope to catch up with all of you this week.
anything exciting happen while i was away?

we were treated to lunch and dinner here...
lunch: grilled ham and cheese with tomato bisque
dinner: parmesan crusted ono with asparagus
delicious food and drinks with amazing views of the golf course.
(vest, old navy (buy); sweater, express (similar);
leather shorts (similar)(faux), urban outfitters; bracelets via oomph;
shoes, victoria's secret (similar); bag, nine west (gift))

  6. So glad your back :) And I am so not excited to fly because I just know that I'd get stuck with the pat downs and random baggage check. That kind of thing happens to me too often!

  22. I most definitely HATE going through checkpoints. Not that I don't pass or anything, it just makes looking nice while flying a hassle. When I went to Mexico with a couple other people, my bff kept on getting stopped no matter where we flew from. They stopped him for the bread he was carrying, the chess set he bought, and even the stuff he got from Duty Free. Ridiculous.

    Love those faux leather shorts!

  27. It's good to have you back! We missed you too! :)
    I had some problems with the airport security too, when I was returning from Paris a few years ago. But it had to do with some of the few cosmetics I had on my bag.
    Really nice outfit! I adore your leopard pumps, and leather shorts.
