Harve De Grace, MD Part 2

I left off yesterday telling you about the craziness of checking into the Vandiver Inn and how I slept and the hauntings the first night. The next day, Saturday the day of the wedding was an extremely hot day. We got up early to go down and eat breakfast and the breakfast was disappointing so we left to eat breakfast elsewhere. After we got done eating breakfast we came back to the b&b and we were suppose to go down to the Baltimore Harbor but by the time we would have got there, we would have to turn around and come right back for the wedding. That was something I was really looking forward to doing but we just didn't have the time.

We helped get a few things together for the bride and just lounged around and took a nap and the wedding was at 4:30pm. The heat index was 107 % on Saturday. It was extremely hot. I am used to hot weather living down south but it was way hotter up there then it is here. The wedding was very nice and the bride looked amazing her dress was to die for !!

The beautiful bride and groom !

They cut the cake ...

The wedding ending up being really nice ! After the wedding we were all so sleepy and laid down early since our flight left early the next morning. I was so sleepy I pretty much fell right to sleep with my iPod on. Then out of no where in the middle of the night and I don't even know what time it was something pinched my foot and I felt it and snapped my foot back real quick and woke up and screamed my sisters name !!

My sister came in and was like, " what is wrong " and I told her what happened and she just starred at me. I fell back to sleep with the covers over my head and all the lights on again and was praying for day light to come so I can get the heck out of that place. The next morning F-I-N-A-L-L-Y came and I hurried to get dress, grab my luggage and go downstairs for an early breakfast. Lots of people were up early and had early flights to catch so we did some socializing and we were out ! I swear the time went by soooo slow like we were caught in some sort of time warp. It was an experience I will not forget and something I never want to experience again. Needless to say I won't be staying at a b&b again or at least not that one !!

Havre De Grace, MD Part 1

Over the weekend I went to my cousins wedding in a small town called Havre De Grace Maryland. The town looks like a movie set from the 60's . I felt like I literally stepped into a backlot movie set in California where they have all the little fake homes set up. The town is right on the waters edge where the chesapeake bay meets the susquehanna river !

That is my cousin T who got married this past weekend !

My cousin chose a very vintage old b&b called Vandiver Inn that was built in the 1800's to get married at. The freakiness all began when we checked into the Vandiver Inn. I have never stayed at a b&b so I didn't know what to expect because I had never stayed at a b&b and never really desired to stay at one to be honest. Most b&b's are really old and haunted.

My silly b-i-l jumped in the middle of the picture.

That is a picture of Mr. Vandiver himself creepy painting I promise his eyeballs followed you in the room.

This is the common area downstairs in the b&b where they serve breakfast.

You see how old this b&b is and when we walked in it got a little crazy once we saw our rooms. I was in so much shock that I didn't even take a picture of the inside of the room but it was very old and the house had an older musty smell to it. I did have enough since not to stay in a room by myself because I am a scarry person like that and I've always heard creepy stories about b&b's, so I stayed in a room with my sister and her husband. We walked in and there was there bed and then a little side room with a day bed from like the 60's and no t.v or nothing.

I slept with all the lights on and my ipod in my ears all night. There was a closest in the other room my sister was staying in and a door which we thought led to another bed room. After midnight every night the light would be on and stayed on until day break. I even knocked on the door a few times and no one would answer back. Come to find out the next day we where all downstairs in the common area and I ran back upstairs for a second and the cleaning lady was in there. I asked her what was behind the door and she said that it was a long hallway that leads to another bedroom but its locked on each side. I said, "Is there is automatic light that comes on after midnight and stays on all night ? " She gave me a strange look and said , " no I have never heard of anyone saying there is a light that comes on at night " That was one of the many freaky things that happened and that really freaked me out.

I didn't sleep for the two nights I was there. My nerves were so bad. I felt like I was caught in the twilight zone. Then there was the wedding on Saturday outside in the extreme weather conditions. I will tell you all about that tomorrow I don't want to freak you out too much today.

I am going out of town this weekend  up north to my cousins wedding for the weekend, which is the only wedding I have this year ...yeah !! I have had a wedding to attend or be in every year for the past 5 years ! Luckily I am not in my cousins wedding I am just a guest !! Last year I was in one wedding and was a guest for 2 other weddings. My life in a since is like the movie 27 Dresses ! One day it will be my turn and I always go back and forth on rather or not I want to torture my bridesmaids and make them wear one of there hideous dresses they made me wear in there wedding..haha--- just kidding--no I am not--hehe !!

I got my little toes done yesterday with a hot pink color ! It is definitely a summer color it screams Barbie to me-- a Barbie pink...l-o-v-e  i-t !! I also got my eye brows threaded which is something I usually do once a month...if you don't know what it is --find out, because you don't know what you are missing . I would never go back to wax or tweezers again !! Hmmm..what else I am wearing a dress I wore to my sisters rehearsal dinner because my cousins wedding is going to be outside and there won't be many people there so why not recycle..go green ! I did buy a new pair of sandals to go with the dress today because this sista can't do heals at all.. so I got cute flats !

I am going to start packing this evening so I won't be worried about doing that tomorrow night. I think I am going to be brave and pack with my smaller luggage piece, because I always over pack and I am just going to be gone for the weekend ! I will post a little something if I have time this weekend. What are you plans for the weekend ?

My New Favorite Gadgets

Who doesn't love gadgets ? I freaken love them ! I have a couple of new gadgets that I wanted to share with you all !!

  • IPhone 4 -- I upgraded my original iPhone for the new iPhone 4. I reserved it a week before I got it and when I went to pick it up a few weeks ago the line was wrapped around the mall. The local news station was there and they told me it was a 3 hour wait ! Everyone in that line had reserved the new iPhone 4. I don't know what was wrong with me but I waited in line for exactly 3 hours and once I got into the apple store I was in and out in like 15 minutes.

My iPhone 4 is all black and I love,love,love it !! Everyone needs to get one. The facetime is the best feature. You can actually see the person you are talking to if they have an iPhone 4 and it's like skype.
Price is starting at $199

  • HP Photosmart Premium Touchsmart Web All-in-One Printer --super long title but I must say I love this new printer of mine..which makes for my 4th Hp printer. I have a weird obsession with printers and HP makes it easy to have an obession because they come out with a new printers like all the time..every year it's something bigger and better then the last one, which explains why I have 4 printers ! A girl that loves to take pictures can never have to many printers..right ?!?  

The cool thing about this printer is this is the first printer that uses web right on the printer. It's wireless so you can visit your favorite websites right on the printer itself and print from is also a fax machine, a photosmart machine which prints fabulous pictures, scanner.. all in one ! I had it for 2 months and just opened it and started playing with it a few weeks ago and it's pretty cool. The price tag is pretty steep but it's worth it !
Price : $399.99

Single and so ready to mingle !

I haven't updated my blog in a little over a week because it seems as if I am being tested in each and every way in these last few months. I was debating on if I should talk about it on my blog or not but I decided that maybe I should. I am now single, Mr.C and I broke up and I am so grateful that we did. If you have been following me since the beginning then you would know that we have known each other since high school and come to find out his whole entire life is a lye ! I have known him for 16 years and we dated for 7 years and broke up for years and last year before my sisters wedding he " confessed his love for me " and told me that he was moving.

Come to find out he had been living a double life over the past year and I won't go into detail but I will say he is the devil he is an anti-Christ...he has pure evil and hate in his heart. I don't understand how one person can be so evil and disrespectful ! I don't want to understand because I am a good hearted person and I would never think to do the things he has done to me over all these years and especially this last year. I am just glad that I found out now, what happened. What if we got married and he started living this crazy double life that he thought was acceptable. The funny thing is he wasn't going to tell me anything at all. God is so good because what happens in the dark comes out in the light !!

I am not hurting over this or upset in anyway shape or form. I was just shocked to find out that there truly are evil people that exist in this world. He was acting like Tiger Woods but doesn't have a pot to piss in and a window to throw it out of ! The nerve of some people. I don't feel like I need to put him on blast and reveal his name or get back at him because karma is a bitch and he will get his. He will get his when he least expects it and it will come back to him double fold. You can't live your life walking around messing with other innocent people's lives and thing that you can get away with it.

I am so blessed that I don't ever have to see him or be apart of his selfish ways again ! That is the best news !! I am now single and ready to mingle ! I will at least have some juicy stories to share on my blog about dating..hahah !
