I hope everyone in the States had a wonderful 4th of July holiday! The best part about any holiday for me is my family coming and spending time together. We had a smaller crowd than normal, but I had just as much fun this year as each past year. We attempted to fry our own corn dogs and mini candy bars, had some tasty sangria, and enjoyed a private fireworks show in our backyard hosted by my ever entertaining Dad and cousin.

I realized I do not own any red clothing, so I was a bit out of the color scheme for the holiday, instead wearing maroon, white and blue. It is the thought that counts!

I cannot get this shirt untied from around my waist. It’s impossible. I’m stuck in the 90s and I don’t care. Also, my shorts are a little too short and it was a family party, so since I was already a bit risqué (or, naked as my Dad referred to me) on the top, it also helped to cover up a bit more. As much as I could bare in the high 90 degree heat, anyway! Style and function!

How did you celebrate holidays? Do you tend to keep them family events or to make plans with friends? Holidays have always been family-centric for me, probably because I grew up close in proximity to the majority of my family, so it has always been easy for us to get together for all the major holidays. For Thanksgiving and Christmas, my friends and I usually celebrate either a couple days before or after with our own party, which is nice because I get to share the holidays with friends and make those days last a little bit longer! I am a holiday whore, so any excuse to drag them out, I will use it. Repeatedly!

Fried candy bars, guns, family, and my dad jumping through fireworks. Can’t get more American than that!

p.s. My second billboard for the California Family Fitness 2014 campaign is up all around Sacramento! My totally realistic and not stupid goal at all is the climb up to the ledge and sit on the billboard next to myself and take a selfie with my billboard. The next billboard will be up in September, so I have a couple months to build up the nerve to try to get up there. It will never happen.

Hello? Anyone still around?

Excuse my absence. I’ve been sick and have now come to diagnose myself with bronchitis. Last week I felt like I was hit by a big rig; It was like I had the worlds worst hangover for an entire week. Do you know what worse than the worst hangover? The worst hangover without the fun the night before.This week it’s down to sniffles and coughing, but I could probably fill an ocean with the fluid rattling around in my lungs right now. It’s so nice not to have health insurance. I am counting down the days until this wedding of mine; health insurance by marriage!

I am so ready to be healthy again. I never thought I would say this, but I really miss working out and running! I have definitely been lying low, trying to rest up. Usually when I am sick, I keep going so I don’t get behind or miss anything, and then I end up sick for an enitre month. I’m trying hard this time to do it right, but time is really testing my patience!

In other news, if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you might have seen the other day that I did some extra work on a made for TV Christmas movie with Dean Cain. It’s probably the lowest form of work someone in LA can get, especially considering I was not paid for it. But believe you me when I say it was a dream come true. I have wanted to be in a made for TV Christmas movie my whole life. They are literally one of my favorite things in the world! I am cheese filled Christmas fiend and I was so in love with that day! The best thing is that I got called back to do more today! I am pretty sure there is a good chance my face might make it into the final edit for at least 1.5 seconds.

Is it Christmas yet?

A few things: I look like a watermelon. It is evident that I do not iron my shirts. My necklace is awesome.

This necklace is from Penh Lenh Deisngs, meaning “whole” in the Cambodian language, Khmer, and what makes them so special, is that they are a handcrafted jewelry line that’s working with Cambodian women rescued from sex trafficking. I was really excited to receive a piece of this beautiful line, not only because I think the necklace is beautiful, but for the empowering message it stands for. Penh Lenh’s mission is to empower these young women to pursue their life goals through quality education, vocational training, and advanced career opportunities.

Please check out more from the Penh Lenh collection!

Proof of my sickness. Also it may be the first picture anyone has published on their style blog of them mid cough. It’s kind of gross. You’re welcome.

I literally have no topics in my head to write about.

I’m empty, blank. I have zip, nada, nothing for you. I  am currently lounging, watching random repeats of Late Night with Seth Meyers and now The Goldbergs. David is next to me color correcting these photos I am about to put into this post. Real time bloggin, ya’ll. I mean, if that doesn’t make for an exciting Thursday night, then I don’t know what does. Today started crappy, so the nothing that is happening right now is pretty good in comparison. Sometimes you just need nothing going on.

The second weekend of Coachella starts tomorrow. I know jealously is not flattering on anyone, but who cares, I’m jealous. Don’t pretend you’re not. If you aren’t, it’s because you have gone before. I’ve only been once, but that one magical weekend in 2012 was all I needed. Coachella is all it’s hyped up to be and more. I need to start saving my pennies so I can go next year. A dollar a day and I’m there!

This blouse is wrinkled and unflattering in photos. It’s one of my favorite tops to throw on, though.

I am still excited this weekend for Easter! My good friend is hosting a brunch and she plans to hide over 100 eggs in the yard. Being an adult can still be fun! I look forward to the each party she hosts; she is Pinterest, but for real. Every time I try something from Pinterest, it turns out to be one of those “nailed it” circumstances where I definitely do not nail it. But, oh Danielle, she is Miss Pinterest and I am so in awe of her. All the food that will be there is also a factor.

Do you have any Easter plans?

I feel like my blog is about nothing. Like Seinfeld. Which is my all time favorite show. A show about nothing. I think I need to re-brand.

Or about how many weird faces I can make.

Last Friday I was able to attend Lucky FABB with the Crossroads Trading Co team. Since this was my first time going to the conference, I wasn’t sure what to expect and since I am Procastinating Patty over here, I barely did any research to prepare. I wasn’t even sure what I needed to prepare for. I was mostly worried about what to wear. I was going to be surrounded by beauty and fashion bloggers, and even if I have a so-called style blog, I don’t find myself very stylish, fashionable, or knowledgable about either. And beauty? Um, my makeup routine consists of mascara. I spent a whole five minutes Googling past Lucky FABB photos and decided to throw on a basic uniform of black with a bit of flannel.

What I was prepared for though, was for some good old fashioned note taking. I think I was the only one with a notebook and pen versus a laptop or iPad. I still kick it old school. I was particularly excited for the “Grow Your Traffic/SEO Checklist” seminar. I know squat about anything that has to do with web sites and computers, so it was really interesting to find out that the basics are not all that hard. I’ll have to re-evaluate once I actually try to put some of the tips into practice!

I did not expect to absolutely fall in love with Coco Rocha. The last panel was Coco Rocha and Eva Chen, the Editor in Chief of Lucky Magazine. Honestly, I didn’t know anything about her, but she won me over in the 45 minutes that she was on stage. Besides all of the shallow traits she has; comppletely gorgeous, perfect smile, legs for miles, she’s also incredibly intelligent. She speaks about the fair treatment of models  and is outspoken about the eating disorders among those in the industry.

Also, that afternoon affirmed my love for Nicole Richie even if I could only see her lavender top bun from my seat.

Adoring the manicure I got during Lucky FABB from Top Coat!

I did drag around David’s camera all day in my backpack and took about 7 photos. So, totally worth it.

Of course that meant I re-created the outfit for proper photos. That and I pretty much wear it once a week anyway. Am I the only blogger too shy to ask a hotel full of bloggers to take outfit photos for me?

The answer is most likely yes.

This was my view during most of the panels. Not bad in person, but doesn’t really capture in a photo, which is why I kept the camera tucked away the majority of the time.

This is the one photo I asked someone to take. I am clearly uncomfortable, even though person there takes blog photos.

Thank you again to the Crossroads team for taking me to Lucky FABB. There was so much valuable information and I really am hoping that I am motivated enough to put it to good use!

p.s. No makeup mornings.
