Benson

Thursday, January 24, 2013

I miss you so much!!!! I'm so sorry for the lack of posts, but truly, I've just been working like crazy and even though I've dressed up, managing to capture the outfit is kinda hard. Trying to reconnect with my gorilla blogger side, LOL, the side where you get super creative with any reflective surface in a 10ft radius to prove if only to YOURSELF you worked it that day. Gorilla baby.

Well this day was obviously in late December thanks to the Christmas decorations photo-bombing. Had a meeting at The Benson Hotel in downtown Portland with the Portland Business Alliance to discuss Portland Fashion Week. This hotel has a lot of memories for me and is a staple for anyone needing a gorgeous place to meet for lunch. They hosted my 30th birthday party actually! ahhhhhh the days, having the Presidential Suite (like the one that ACTUAL POTUS' have stayed in) all to myself. I learned that day that Secret Service will never put the Prez on the top floor? Didn't know that? Guess the SS stays on top floor with Prez always under them. Hm? Who knew?


This picture doesn't do the largest mirror I've ever seen in my life, justice. It's like 15 feet tall or something? I don't know. HUGE. Like weighs a few tons huge. LOVE it so. Great for the gorilla blogger selfies. LOL

HEALTH: (since it's an inevitable conversation, here are the facts) 310lbs as of Jan 2014, normal blood pressure + cholesterol + sugars + etc, no PCOS, no thyroid problems, I think my metabolism has completely left the building however, I absolutely believe the human body was meant to move and exercise is important! Get those endorphins baby! Afterall, happy people don't kill people, right? :D

RULES I LIVE BY
• being a working mommy wifey doesn't mean I have to dress the part *wink*
• black, white, red and grey for life
• no matter what size I am I will dress this body to the nines
• Size and age are just a numbers
