Mack Commandeers the Blog: Florence Nightingale Edition

So as many of you saw on Monday, Chelsea is a bit out of commission this week… and, since a ton of you follow us on social media, you know WHY. Chelsea had her wisdom teeth removed, like most teenagers twentysomethings have to do. It’s not fun, but it’s a necessity a great deal of the time. She’s doing just fine, and we’ll be back to work in no time flat, but for a couple of days it makes life slow around here.

Now that I think about it, it makes things REALLY slow around here. See, a huge part of what Chelsea does around here isn’t necessarily “take pictures”. Sure, she’s doing killer work with her camera, but she’s also “on” all the time. From inquiries, to correspondence with brides about scheduling, styling, vendor advice, in-law issues… Homegirl is CONSTANTLY working for our clients/friends. Even when we were on vacation, twice a day she’s hammering at the keyboard answering all those e-mails. She invests so much emotionally in each of our couples that it’s impossible to get her to take a real break. I think a lot of our clients even recognize this, which is one of the reasons I love social media. I love the way you guys will preface e-mails with “I know you’re on vacation, so don’t you dare get back to me until Monday!”

So while I really can’t stand that she’s hurting, or occasionally out of it, I AM glad that this whole mess forces her to slow down a bit this week. She totally deserves a rest, even if it is medically induced. Maybe after this is all over, I can bribe her with a day on the couch with ice cream so she’ll take a day off!

Also– Several of her “friends” wanted me to take and post hilarious video, but I really didn’t want to sleep in the dog house for a week after she found them, so I was nice 😉 Plus, she was too composed to be entertaining. Seriously, she was just like sleepy normal. After the stories from when I had my wisdom teeth removed, I was hoping for something a little more entertaining! However, in the spirit of keeping everyone happy, I decided that it would be acceptable to mention that SHE drunk-posted (sedative-posted? Anesthesia-posted?) on Instagram yesterday while I was in the pharmacy getting her prescriptions. (chelsea_mcgowan)

You’re welcome. To make up for what I just did, PLEASE leave her some love in the comments, or on Facebook, or whatever. Comments are like cupcakes 😉

Now I have to get back to the living room with some Blue Bell!

    I know the EXACT feeling of having started a remodel and being thisclose to being done only to have a couple of loose ends that take years to tie up. Specifically OUR bedroom. It’s just so darn comfy that I haven’t lost any sleep over it yet though. 🙂 I love the blue and the gorgeous, gorgeous couple on the walls!!! And the acrylic gallery mount? Dying. The headboard reminded me who’s to blame for my One King’s Lane addiction. Mmm hmmmm, I’m looking at you! My very favorite things about this room though, are the personal touches kept clean and classy. Souvenirs from travels + tchotchke collection = perfect way to inject your personality into a beautiful space! Well done! 🙂
