Weekend WrapUp!

Good Morning!

Hope everyone had a really nice weekend! Its amazing to have Spring FINALLY here! We were outside most of this week and couldn't be happier about it.


Scott said he was not going to have alcohol in the house for a bit... as you can see, the struggle is real and he ended up buying "just a couple for the Masters". Men.

We took these awesome crates from Scott's work and we're going to make some seating areas in our backyard. Stay tuned to see if we actually do it and how it turns out. Should be hilarious either way.

After being here 9 months or so, we FINALLY found something that reminded us of (our last) home. The Hoots Flea. It was really cute, had some great furniture that we'd see in Brooklyn for about $400 less. SCORE!

Hoots is an old Roller Bar Warehouse that they've redone for artists.

Our new favorite spot for dinner or weekends is The Porch. Its down home, artistic, plays good music and has character. FINALLY!

If ya don't know... now ya know. Offer Ends Tuesday EOD.


Macaroni loves my new kicks from VANS that support the ASPCA! Go get yourself a pair. They have kitties too!

I have my nephew and brother coming to visit this week and I'm a little nervous as there is NOTHING TO DO HERE. I did however hide little easter chicks around the house and if my nephew finds them all, he gets a prize. I don't know what that prize IS yet, but, I'll come up with something, I'm sure.

Thursday's Wow

I've heard those stories about people who have died because of ingesting  simple household items, including water and cinnamon... but how much is TOO much? Well, this handy guy will totally help you out with this question. Who would eat 22 pounds of blue cheese?! SICK!

A Bridal Shower

This past weekend I headed home to Virginia to celebrate my sisters bridal shower, for her upcoming wedding in May. I think the afternoon turned out beautiful, here are a few pictures.

Every set had a box of flowers as a "take home gift" and a coaster to write "advice" for the bride and groom. We also did a wine tasting from places Jill has spent time in, Northern VA (born and raised), Southern VA (where her wedding location is) and then NY (where she lives now). Nothing better then getting a little tipsy while someone opens presents, huh? :)


These cupcakes were DEEEEELISH!! and oh so pretty.


When you came into the room, we had people fill out notecards and then the bride had to guess the memory. This was my favorite game.



The pretty bride enjoying some tea.

Me, my mother and sister (bride)

Friends celebrating

While all the ladies were out showering our bride, the men went out and drank beers and did man stuff. That looks fun too!!

INTRODUCING!


It's happened, I have finally finished this project that I have been working on for what seems, forever! However, what felt like forever, really was 1.5 years, but, it was a lot. With that, I wanted to introduce you to my baby... 9Months!

Do you have a friend that is pregnant or a co-worker who just made the announcement? You want to get them something to celebrate this amazing time in their life, but, just don't know what to get? Well, I have the solution to all that! 9Months! OR, are you pregnant and feel left out of all the celebratory toasts and cheers going on around you and want to feel apart of the party? We have that covered with 9Months as well. JOIN THE CELEBRATION!

www.9monthslove.com

You can read all about it there and let me know your thoughts!

If you would like to make a purchase, please use the code, ALWAYSTHEWEEKEND for 20% off! This week only!

I'm most proud of this venture because a portion of all sales will be donated to the March of Dimes for healthy pregnancy's -- as most of you know, that is a huge part of my life and helping to prevent any woman going through what I did, would be amazing. No one should have to go through something so heart wrenching.

**Please feel free to post on your blogs if you feel! I'm happy to have people spread the word.

Lots of love,
Carrie

Pics on My Phone


Two weekends ago we went to Phoenix, AZ to visit Scottie's parents and went to a Suns game. We got the time wrong and ended up being there an hour early, but watched the players warm up, so we were happy. AND, they won to boot!



pretending we are the biggest Suns fans EVER -- but, I am a fan now... they were awesome to watch!

Visiting the Kirby's means you get the parents AND grandparents in on one trip! Big Kev ate too much pasta.

Uh oh... looks like Kirbo found a local softball team. Batting practice on a Sunday.
Putin on a Ritz

I saw that on the web this week and haven't stopped laughing at it!
