Did I tell y'all the news that I have a doppleganger?

It was brought to our attention by one of the hubster's friends.

I was all excited because one of my favorite past times with the hubs is figuring out who people's celebrity doppelgangers are, particularly dogs to humans.
(Like Hub's German Shepard looks like George Clooney)
 I know super weird.

Hubs is pretty terrible at this game and declares everyone a different ethnicity to our friend Lexie. Example: "Look at that girl! She looks like an Asian Lexie!" You get the idea.

Anyways! Back to my doppleganger, I was hoping it would be an A-list celeb or a Victoria Secret model (hey a girl can dream) but instead it's this chick....

Do you see it? I kind of do.
She's the B-list celeb that can be watched as the annoying Ex Girlfriend in cinematic master pieces such as 'Shes Out of My League'
Never heard of it?
There's a reason for that.
Womp Womp.

Paddle Through It

When I was home, I took a kayak tour.

Look who was my guide.

And look who else was there.

The moms and the sister.
We were super pumped about it.
Brother impressed us with all of his knowledge on the tides, birds, fish, and all the history of the place we call home.
What a smarty pants.

The real treat was the sunset.

Are you loving it?

Wait for it.

Wait for it.


There it is.
So gorgeous.
Did I say that was the real treat? I'm sorry I lied.

This was the real treat.

Watching sister get stuck in the spartina grass.
Did you know that was spartina grass?
Kayak tour knowledge in your face!
She's alright.
She paddled through like a champ.

I got to go home this past weekend to attend this little angel's Baptism.
Did I tell y'all I'm the Godmother?
Cartwheels ensued over that one.
Her nickname is Doodie Doodie Doodie.
 I'm obsessed with her.
While at home, I also got to see this one. You know her. I'm obsessed with her as well.
(Brother was there too, but that's a whole other post on his big kayaking tour)

We currently have no power again due to Frankenstorm....
Hmm this feels familiar.
It was the same weekend last year we had no power due to the October snow storm.
Why did I leave the South again?
Below is the Hub's Hurricane Supply.
Roses to the fact that he purchased not one but two boxes of Peanut Butter Captain Crunch
(that boy truly loves me as he knows PBCC is my kryptonite)
Thorns to the fact that most of the food he bought requires electrical appliances such as a stove.
But let's revert back to the fact that I have two boxes of PB Captain Crunch to eat and all is right again.

October 11th

(the hubs and i doing our best 'Zoolander' )
 today happens to be my 4th wedding anniversary
i think i'd like to go back in time and pat myself on the back and whisper,
 'nice job, well done'
and let myself know:
this handsome fella is going to crack you up
he's going to bring you flowers at work for no reason at all
he's going to cook you dinner, like all the time
he's going to let you make the house an obscene temperature of cold so you don't get hot at night and he has to sleep under 8 blankets
he's not going to give you crap about shopping too much
he's going to be willing to go on fun adventures with you, try new places and new things
 he's going to give you that big hug you need at the end of the day
or your space if you need it
he's going to go on ice cream runs at 9:30 at night because you have a sweet tooth
he's going to be your biggest cheerleader and your most fierce protector
he's going to let you be silly and ridiculous and love you for it
he's going to do everything he possibly can to make you HAPPY
and you are going to experience a love like you never thought possible

Happy Anniversary Daniel James,
you have exceeded my expectations in every possible way
Loving you,

She's Here

Cool evenings with the windows open, snuggling under blankets
Crackling fires
Yummy colored leaves changing on every tree
Pumpkin - everything! Coffee, recipes, scents,
 Boots, scarves and sweaters
The apple fritter stand
Good tv back on (finally!)
 Holidays peeking around the corner
 White Pumpkins decorating my house
(I'm clearly OD-ing on pumpkins)

 I heart fall.

Like a photo booth to liven up a party.

Guess whose visiting me this week?
Can you see those two little noggins in the photo?
We visited the Mystic Aquarium on Wednesday and met this White Beluga Whale that seemed to be just as interested in us as we were with him.
Those cute little faces even make sea creatures smile.

Thoughts from the Weekend

Seeing the groom's face when his bride walks down the aisle still gets me.every.time.

I got over my spanx phobia. I get it now, I really do.

Martha's Vineyard is the Charleston of the North.
I need to own a house in one of these locations. I'm not picky, I'll take either.

The Hub's gives amazing best man speeches. The boy KILLED it.

Late night sliders and french fries are the new wedding trend and I'm loving it, even if my waistline isn't.

One day, I will get the lesson through my head that dancing while holding champagne do not mix. Just ask the front of my dress.

I still get wedding envy, like I want to redo it again and again.

All brides whose wedding was pre-pinterest, should get a do-over.
Whose with me?!

It's in the air

This labor day weekend is full of celebrations

Tomorrow I will be in one of my best friend's weddings here

(Harry Potter-ville, aka Hub's work place, aka Avon Old Farms School)

Then waking up at the crack of dawn to make it here

(2 hour car ride to make it to the 1 hour and half ferry ride)
for the hub's best friend's wedding in Martha's Vineyard.

So, yah, I'm going to be celebrating. A lot.

Manicure, pedicure, dress alterned, fake tan later, and I'm ready.

Let's do this!

Just wondering if these were normal purchases in August?

No? I didn't think so either....

Wedding Season

So, wedding season has officially begun for us this past weekend.
We have two, that's right TWO weddings coming up on Labor Day weekend and my Cousin Lizzy's wedding at the end of September.
Lucky us, lots of celebrations!
This weekend we celebrated Jackie and Drew.

Can you tell we were having a good time? And really I just had to tell you about the genius as we left the wedding, on the way out, when we were tired from dancing, a little too much champagne, the hairspray had sweated from my hair, they had, wait for it.....

Sliders and french fries in To Go cups.....
 i mean.
Who was happier than me?
Pretty sure no one.
Also side note, the lead singer of the band looked EXACTLY like Ben Affleck. No, seriously.
You're just going to have to take my word for it.

I Love You

Here's a little story

of a birthday boy who was a little grumpy when he thought his wife didn't plan anything for his big 3-0.
                                        (it's true, he tried not to let on but i know him too well)
But all was forgiven when he was surprised by a limo with all of his favorites and some fancy birthday bowling.

Happy Birthday Hubs!
As if we wouldn't celebrate....

Don't you just love it when you purchase something, wear it and then find almost the exact same thing only $8 million dollars cheaper? (exaggeration for effect, just go with it) 
 My pain, your gain people.

J Crew Necklace $150.00

Ily Couture Necklace - Etsy $50.00

Dolce Vita Sandal $69.00
Mossimo Sandal from Target $14.99

YSL Arty Ring $250.00
Tobi Ring $14.00

No, that's not a typo.

Wearing the cheaper version in front of me, priceless.

He Did It

We have a bona fide Clemson graduate on our hands folks...

and we couldn't be more proud.

Um, Can We Talk?

By now it's pretty clear I have a Chevron obsession.

So when I saw this chevron lamp shade at Target, my eyes bugged out of my head.
Not figuratively, lit-er-ally.

So even though I have no place to put them, it shouldn't come as a surprise that i am purchasing not one, but two. And I WILL find a place for them.

Let's not lose any sleep over that mkay?

She's Back

And I love her.

Wednesday, April 4, 2012


counting down the days until I can kiss these little faces.

It's what I have been day dreaming about lately.

Ready for the easiest recipe you'll ever make in your life?

Shredded chicken (I used rotisserie)

Cilantro - chopped

Green onion

Lime juice(I didn't even cut a lime, I squirted it out of the little plastic lime shaped thing y'all)


 Cherry Tomatoes - cut in half

                   Quinoa/Brown Rice (Minute Rice- seriously comes in one cup packages that you put in the microwave for you guessed it, one minute! Target market, right here)

Half an avocado - chopped


I should have a cooking book called, 'The Lazy Cook'
Although this would be the only recipe in it.
Also this was adapted from a Pinterest recipe so of course I can't take full credit.
Carry On.
