A Little Break

Hey friends, 

There are some things going on in our little world. Nothing I can really blog about; maybe someday? I think I need some time away from everything for a while, including blogging. I don't really feel like I'm up to it at this point. Hoping you will all understand cause I could really use some support...

Thanks guys,

Oh How Pinteresting...

Happy Wednesday friends. Yesterday was a rough one. Isn't it a shame after such a great 3 day weekend Tuesday had to be so rotten.  Once today is over we are so much closer to the weekend!!!

Fifty Shades Darker and Shades Better...

Either you love them or you hate them. I just happen to really love them. I know the writing isn't classic literature and the characters aren't the greatest but I  have found myself reading. I don't read much and I know I really should so I'm just going to keep reading the so called "lady porn"

What my weekend looked like. 

Fifty Shades Darker is the second in the Shades of Grey trilogy. Its erotic, hot and steamy.  I found there to be a lot of character development in this book. Yes, there is a lot more than just the S word. Dare I call it a LOVE story?!?!?! When reading the first I couldn't wait for the next juicy sex pages but it was a breathe of fresh air to get a little more than that in Darker.The one thing I'm not a huge fan of  I'm more than halfway finished and would definitely recommend this on to anyone that was unsure of the first.

Happy Holiday Weekend everyone! 
Enjoy yourselves and BE SAFE!!!

DIY Wedding Baskets...

I absolutely love small, personal touches at weddings. I tried to throw in as many as I could on our special day. Our bathroom baskets were a simple little project my mom and I enjoyed doing together. 

Found this poem at Project Wedding

So happy you're here sharing our special day. 
But just in case something should go astray:

Please help yourself to the contents within
Mouthwash, hand lotion or ibuprofen

Use what you need, and just leave the rest. 
For it may be useful to some other guest.

Repair the damage that may have been done. 
Then quick Hurry back and join in the fun. 

We filled the baskets with:

Nail Glue
Shout wipes
Needle and thread
Chap stick
Nail polish remover
Lint roller
Bobby pins

Most of the items were purchased at Harmon, $99 Store and on sale at CVS so it is a budget friendly project too. 

These were so awesome some one actually stole the basket out of the guy's bathroom.

Happy Wednesday....

This week has been pretty craptastic. The weather stinks. I'm awaiting audit at work which is just very stressful. Just having one of those blah weeks. With that being said we are halfway there! The rainy holiday weekend is calling my name! Anyways, lets get to the pinning...

We finally did it!!!
We have booked a honeymoon. To where you ask?

(I need to find this vintage poster)

I am so excited even though I slept right through the planning.

We have even set up some excursions. We will be swimming with dolphins and snorkeling above some shipwrecks. I'm so excited but nervous. I really don't enjoy traveling. Is that weird? I really like the idea of traveling but I am so much more of a home body. The nerves tend to get the best of me. I'll be nervous till the day we leave.  I've already started shopping for fun vacation attire and have most of them lined up in our guest room waiting to be packed.

Oh that note I think I'm going to need a few guest bloggers in a couple of weeks. Email me!

Weekend FTW...

What a fantastic weekend. I extended it just one extra day to just relax and have the day to myself. I just love days that take little planning but turn out to be the best nights. I started the day with my Fifty Shades Darker and relaxation on my deck. I LOVE book 2.

My best friends invited us out to our home town winery and beer garden. Nothing like good food, friends, and alcohol. I love my hometown. There is always something fun and interesting to do. 

After a few to many glasses at a wine tasting, hard cider, white wine and Joe Momma's Milk I was out for the count. One of us had the genius idea of cooking lobster and clams at 11pm. Apparently I was slightly embarrassing in Shoprite. 

I kinda remember eating this. I think it was delicious. 

Sunday we cooked a turkey. I was so excited about this one. I tried once before and it was dry and terrible but this time around it was ridiculous! So amazing! 
Can't wait to have a nice turkey sandwich later!

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.

Happy Friday....

I don't know about you but this work week seemed to fly by. I have a feeling this is going to start happening. We have so man wonderful things coming next month. Before I get ahead of myself I should try to focus on all the fantastic things going on right now...

1.) We finally got a sneak peak of our wedding pictures. AHHH, it is going to seem like forever until we get them.

2.) I feel like my bloggers block is getting better. Still not 100% but I'm not dreading making posts like I had been.

3.) I've been back to Zumba, lost 2 pounds and I'm excited about eating a lot better this week.

4.) Farmer's Markets are BACK! YES!!! My most favorite ways to spend my Sundays.

5.) I got an email from my CEO thanking me for taking "Excellent initiative" and she was "Truly Impressed" WOW, what a fantastic thing to hear. I felt so fantastic when I read that.

6.) My husband has been extra awesome this week. He usually is but this week he has gone above and beyond. Making incredible dinners, cleaning up the house and just being sweet.

7.) My friends and I have planned my bachelorette party (PART 2) If you guys didn't know I got violently sick the night of my first one (some horrific stomach bug/food poisoning/infection). Cut the night short, they partied on and I spent it in the ER with my soon to be hubby and mom. Just terrible.

8.) This weekend I am on the hunt for Fifty Shades Darker. I MUST find it! I won't give up until I find it!

9.) Friday dinners with mom.

10.) Honeymoon and trips are planned... More on that next week.

Changing the subject for a second....


WTF this sucks.

Rest peaceful Donna Summer. Remember dancing in the front seat of mom's Chevrolet Monte Carlo to this one...
