So last night was skirt! magazine's October event to present some of the featured ladies in this months issue. I was fortunate enough to have the editor get excited about Bedouins and what we do there so I was actually one of the ladies featured this month. She wanted me to speak at the event a little and talk about what Bedouins does. I've never really been to an event like that, so I was slightly intimidated, but it actually turned out to be a lot of fun. I met some pretty amazing ladies who are also doing their own little part to help where they can. I really hope we all keep in touch!

And for those of you who haven't heard of skirt! they are a really cool nationwide magazine that talks about the women in their local communities doing good things and other related goings-on. Check them out HERE.

Peace out,




So for any of you that know me, you probably know that I am a fairly huge Hanson fan. They are the only band that I have consistently listened to over the last decade. So of course, I was super pumped about them coming to play in Birmingham where I live. I was even more pumped when my super great photographer boyfriend got me into the show for free because he shoots for that particular venue.

And then my mind was blown when I got to go backstage and hang out with them in the Green Room.


That's what I was thinking. But I was super cool in real life, barely let on that I loved them. :)



So we made it back from the long weekend in Nashville. Besides our meetings for Bedouins, we also got to go to the zoo and hang out downtown. I am exhausted and really not looking forward to being at work at 6:30 in the morning, but I have to pay my bills somehow. Here are some pics from the trip...

"The Batman Building"

The Zoo!

The trainers got the elephants to pick up logs and carry them...Stephen bought me a stuffed elephant. His name is Abner and I love him.

Sometimes I get to model while Stephen sets up his camera before a shoot...hehe



Stephen and I took the weekend to come up to Nashville. It has been a blast. I was born in Tennessee but somehow I have never made it to Nashville, so it's been fun. We came up to meet a bunch of people who were interested in learning more about what we do at Bedouins International, and a few are going to end up doing some work with us, which I'm really excited about. We're definitely going to be working with an organization called gi*inc, which is another cool media organziation who needs some help with their new website. We may also be working with Audio Adrenaline's organization the Hands and Feet Project. They also work in Haiti, which is how they heard about us. So we may get to go back down to Haiti with them to do another documentary about them and how they started Hands and Feet.

God has been opening so many doors for us, and I am so excited to see what is yet to come. By the way, for those of you who haven't seen many pics from our last trip, you can go HERE
to see some!

Love you guys!
