first & foremost one of my very best friends & old roomie got married on cinco de mayo! I wouldn't have missed it for anything & drove down south with a special gift i made for the bride to be, her very own garter for the big day! She surprised when their engagement party turned into an official wedding ceremony. She was lovely, & it was so sweet how they wrote their own vows & it brought tears to my eyes!
the mista & i ventured to Delray Beach for a little hang time with JT$ & Simon... wandering, hot tubs & hotel rooms. An interesting spanish man even drew me, unbeknownst to me while we sat at a restaurant for lunch. i kept his profile portrait as a memento. kind of strangely awesome.
we also spontaneously drove to Orlando mid-week to catch Thrice on their farewell tour, & it was seriously pretty awesome. Last time i saw them @ House of Blues they were clearly tore up & awesome is definitely not an adjective i would have used to describe their opening performance for Brand New. They completely made up for it that night, nailing songs from all their albums. I can't believe their long stint of touring has come to an end, but it was so dope to see them on stage again.
my boo (closet redneck) fiancé & i went road trippin up to NC for Memorial Day Weekend to meet my cousin, Aunt, strangers & NASCAR enthusiasts to do a little partyin, race style in Charlotte.
