Happy Holiday Weekend!

The weekends are coming 'round faster with each week--I'm not complaining, but last weekend was a killer. I spent Friday evening celebrating a friend's birthday, only to jump right into a 7am call time to whip up some bridal makeup for a good friend. Thankfully I wasn't meant to do the bride herself (I don't know what I would have done with myself, as packing my kit was hard enough--the nerves!), but "a couple bridesmaids" quickly turned into all but two, and the addition of grandmas, moms and aunts. They are a sweet family, and they were full of love and anxiety that morning.

The happy couple jumping the broom--a cultural
tradition in the groom's family

I had a lovely time, but you can believe I was ready to turn in at the end of the night! It wasn't funny when I was still knocked out asleep at 8 o'clock the next night. Backtracking a bit, I did win a raffle basket (I can't be held accountable for the awful Easter grass and cheapo candles--how are you gonna mix that with some MAC?) at the restaurant we dined at on Friday, for a mere five dollars! I jumped for joy as I realized that I now had doubles of the Naked Honey lipglasses. Literally, I jumped. Too bad that wasn't caught on camera :)

note the tanning gift wow, just
what I had been hoping for...

So here we are at the weekend once again--you may be celebrating the 4th of July, or then again you may just be celebrating the ever anticipated end-of-week. What will you be doing?

I can imagine the jump! I always freak out when I get something I love... its quite embarassing. Normally I make a screaming squealing noise too.. :/

You have to explain the broom thing.. i mean it seems like fun but is it traditional???? xx

fantastic said...

@tali: those around me knew that the MAC basket was fitting :) weird thing is, there were doubles of some things, and then some of the most random things, like that mini pigment??

the broom--the bride is Mexican, and the groom is African-American, so what they told us is that jumping the broom symbolized their new unity together, although now I've started reading up on it and am finding all sorts of things!

Tali said...

I want to jump over a broom now!!! Am reding the wiki article next!

Trust me.. even the cheapo candles would have gotten a squeal from me! Fab basket of goodies.. for here it all looks good to me!!!!

Dila said...

:D lol I can imagine that jump too hahah u re soo lucky I never win those kinds of things!!

and jumping the broom! that looks so cute and cool..

fantastic said...

@tali--you're right, maybe i can put those candles to good use..on the patio or something ;) you should jump the broom! what are the traditional things you bring into marriage?--i'm sure there are lots!

@dila--i don't win things either--but this has been my month, with three different things! yay ;)
are you still on vacay?

su-pah said...

great prize! i want some of that MAC honey stuff, bad! ;)

bubblegarm said...

aww hiw adorable, jumping over a broom sounds fun, love the goodies :) mmm *drool*

fantastic said...

@su-pah: has naked honey launch over there? i think it's kind of confusing as to when mac releases their lines throughout the world..there doesn't seem to be one particular order!

@bubblegarm: all for only $ that's a deal!
