Weekend Rewind

Happy New Week! I hope you had a great weekend. Can you believe this weekend
is Memorial Day?! HOLY MOLY where is this year going. I need life to slow the freak
down... just a little. My brother is flying home from FL this weekend and I cannot wait 
to spend some time with him and talk. Miss that guy! 

So, I am a bit conflicted on my Weekend Rewind blog posts. Do I keep things consist 
with the purpose of this blog and write about all things beauty? Or, do I share more of my life
and actual weekend instead of just beauty product buys and reviews??!! What do you think? 

I did buy some beauty goods this weekend, but I think I will save those posts for another day and 
share more of my weekend with you. At least when I have more eventful weekends. 

So, Al and I went to Do Day Day Saturday. Birmingham, AL has this event every 
year in the Highland parks and it is a day dedicated to animals and raising money
and awareness for different groups and humane societies. I have always wanted to go 
to this event, but never made it. Since I got Millie the Maltipoo last year I decided we 
HAD to make an appearance. 

It was such a fun and extremely hot day! We got there right at 11 for the pet parade. 
I cannot even express to you how fun, weird, and hilarious this was. Imagine every kind of 
possible dog dressed up, riding in convertibles, and throwing dog bones and candy. 
Loved. It. : ) 

After the parade we ventured to the Jim n Nicks vendor booth where I decided to try this 
nifty little concoction. BBQ sausage with pimento cheese, crackers, and jalapeno peppers.

So delicious! 

Sweet girl was hot and tired. We found her some shade while we ate 
lunch and she visited with all her new friends. 
 Yay for our first of hopefully many Do Dah Day's! Such a fun event.

 Saturday night Al and I ventured over to Above downtown to meet some friends 
that were celebrating birthday fun. This is such a neat place for night life and I wish more
people would catch on and it would become more popular. It is above (hence the name)
the Redmont Hotel. 

We made some new friends and got the V.I.P. treatment. 
Fun guys. Lots of laughs. 

This pic turned out more clear... love the city background. 

Can I be vain or a little arrogant for a second? If you know me or if you don't know me...
let me preface this with I am the least dramatic, conceited, vain person EVER! I am so 
down to earth and laid back. But, with that said I am taking a moment to publicly be vain.

I was by far the most popular girl Saturday night. The DJ played the Wop and Wobble dance and 
yes, I have learned these dances and yearn for the opportunity to bust a move. I had guys and girls
coming up to me everywhere asking about my dance moves. I had random people taking pictures
of me dancing, people wanting to learn these moves, getting back into the VIP section from 
my moves, and being told by the DJ I was the prettiest girl there that night and it meant a lot
to have a girl like me getting the dancing started. 

Don't hate me for saying that. Please. ha! It was just such a fun night. 
I so want to quote from the song "Popular" from the Broadway show Wicked, but 
I will refrain. ha! 

Until next time.... 

"Wop Wop Wop a little harder
Look at how she wop she a party starter
I hope that security remembered to card her
Cuz I never done the wop where you ain't hotter
I never drop dime but I drop u a dollar
Tell her if you give me your number then maybe I call her
She said that she knew me and knew I'm a baler
Man I better wop outa here I'll see u tomorrow."

What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
