Cleveland Rocks!!!

Okay, well it rocked when we were there last weekend with my mom celebrating her birthday!! :) I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving (Normally I would share all the photos I took on Thanksgiving, but I totally forgot to take some:)) 

So instead I am going to share with all you some illegal photos from the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame! Teheh, apparently you aren't supposed to take photos while in the hall of fame, but I did..and I am SO PROUD :)

Hope y'all enjoy these photos, I would have tons more...except for the fact I probably would have gotten caught if I took a picture of everything! :)

Addicted to Love

Ah love. The word love has so many many meanings. It is no wonder I am addicted to it. :) Let's face it, love is all around us, whether it is physical, emotional, or even virtual. Yes, I said virtual. I'm talking about all the virtual love being spread over the internet....through all sorts of networks. Of course I mean, yours truly, Facebook. But I must add a few others to this list, because I have grown to love them and became addicted to them :)...and so naturally so should you :D


First there is the IG: Instagram. I truly love it! It is a genius idea and very creative. It is a photo sharing app for the iPhone and iPad.(and I hope the android club one day). It has great filters and I have encountered pretty awesome people .  If you're a picture crazy kind a person, download IG and I highly doubt you'll regret it :)


Next, oh I hate to say it...but I joined the Twitter crew. Ahh I didn't think I ever would, haha but I did. It's totally addicting once you get the hang of it. I just started it, so we will see how goes. So far, so good. And don't hate ;), it's like I am trying a piece of clothing on and so far I like it, but we all know once you get to the register...... that's when it really sets in. :)

And good ole Pinterest. Some of you may already love this site as much as me, but to those that don't: 
YOU DEFINITELY SHOULD :) :) :) 
It is highly addicting, you might develop the need to pin all the time, and forever think of what you're dreams are. It's awesome, awesome....oh em gee really friggin awesome. It is a virtual pinboard. Oh and you can recreate pins of all kinds...you become a pretty crafy person...just sayin' :)

Let's not forget Blogger. I truly enjoy reading everyone's blogs, it's nice to know I'm not the only person out there who likes to display their lives or talk about nonsense. =) So here's a cheers to all my Blogger's out there, thanks for your kind comments and reads...it's a day brightener for sure :)

Holidaze, Celebrate

Yup, its that time of the year again. Where we get to surround ourselves with love, with food, possibly presents, and all things glittery :) 

Next weekend, the 18th, is my mom's birthday. And she is coincidentally going to be in Cleveland that weekend for work, which is only a 4 hour drive for us (as compared to mom's house in SC: 12 hour drive). So we are driving down to celebrate her birthday, and an early Thanksgiving. :) I am so so so SO excited to see my mom! I miss her so much and love that it has worked out for us to see her again. Of course I wish my brother and sisters could come up too, but its just not in the cards :(. However, my mom's bestie, Melinda, lives an hour or so from Cleveland. So she'll be driving over too! It is going to be a great weekend, so once again: STOKED. 
My awesome mother and I :) 

Next on the calendar is Thanksgiving. And it seems that Zach's family doesn't really celebrate it together, so we were invited *awesome* to both of our co-workers meals. One during the day, and one at night. Super excited to have a classic Thanksgiving meal with some pretty awesome people. And I love to bring food, so now I must figure out what meal I am going to bring, or what dessert :) ?

Next is Christmas! I can't wait to decorate our Christmas tree. It isn't our first, but its our first as a married couple, and its going to include something really special: our guests wishes' from the wedding. We did a guestbook tree and the guests wrote on sand dollars with well wishes and such. We are going to use all of them as ornaments this year, as a reminder of our special day and all of our friends/family that we won't be able to celebrate the holidays with. :) And I will *more than likely* have my first WHITE Christmas:). 
This was such a great idea, I'm so glad we did this!

Lastly, New Years! So we have just planned a trip to go to Chicago to ring in the new year. Two of our friends, that we met on our honeymoon cruise, live in Chicago and we are going to visit them! So excited! We met such a great group of people on our honeymoon, so its nice to be able to hang out with all of them again (unfortunately they aren't all in the same city lol)
Our awesome Chicago buds, bro n sis, Becky n Adam



Tehe, too funny! Guess only time will tell! Are you a believer/

I also found this amazing dress on Pinterest, but I cannot find it to buy it!!!! What the french, its just a big tease! Luckily I am pretty crafty, so I am going to find a black dress and make this on my own  :)

Here We Are Now, Entertainers

Well first things first, HAPPY NOVEMBER!!! Holy crap, its almost 2012....where has the time gone? 

Zach and I threw a pretty fun Halloween Bash this past Saturday, and we had a pretty good turn out . We decorated, cooked, drank, played beer pong, drank some more...and had a dandy ole' time with our friends! Thanks to eveveryone who came to our first bash, next year will be even better :) 

And our costume...well its time to reveal what we were to my fellow bloggers! :) 

Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, 90s style



And the Jersey Shore came out! LOL

The Decor :)




Huge Black Widow would not go away!!!! LOL


My favorite part: the food/drinks! I became Martha Stewart on Saturday and invented something very creative! Except it wasn't on purpose :)
 I made jello using vodka and jello. 
I poured it in ice cube trays. 
Took out of the trays thinking they would be shot like,...was wrong.
Put them in the freezer

And voila! Chopped liver :)
They were awesome looking, so I called them Blob shots: but it actually resembled chopped liver! :) 

I also baked homemade cinnamon roasted almonds, mummified pigs in a blanket, and  made"Bloody Marys" (except I hate tomato juice so it was frozen strawberries, vodka, and lemonade ...looked pretty bloooody)

 I love Halloween. Actually I love holidays. They are so much fun...how could one not love the holidays? Next is Thanksgiving...mmm fooooodd. 


PS: Can you guess which song the title of my blog is from ? Just reference our costumes:)

Plethora of Things

By plethora, I mean there are so many. And by things, I mean everything that is going on right now. Right now, in our lives, and in the world. I don't even know where to begin? Hmm maybe I'll make a list, because that seems to be a pattern of mine.. I guess you could call me a fanatic list maker, and I'm pretty sure there are more of me out there :)


1. Halloween is around the corner!!! Yesssss! Cannot wait to decorate and figure out a costume :) We are thinking about throwing a costume party for Halloween/Birthday party for our friend Nick. Hmmm, I gots to get to decorating and planning. Oh and figure out our costumes, why is it so hard? 
I do know this, I am totally using a pumpkin as a beer bucket: genius idea!



2. Zach and I just made it to a half year. A half year of being totally in love and married. He is the sweetest thing, and always knows how to cheer me up. I'll love him to the day I die, because he is just that awesome. :) So happy half year anniversary to us, and to any other half year couples out there :)



3. RIP Steve Jobs. I know he had a long health history, but it's still sad :(. He invented the most awesome gadgets  and for that I am thankful for him. I own an iPad, so I feel the need to give him a shout out...because I  j'adore my pad :) 
Thanks Steve Jobs for your incredible inventions, you did wonders.

4. My Jeepy had a breakdown. A cracked radiator. She is all fixed now, but it just cost me an arm and a thigh. Ugh, I can't wait for the day when cars don't breakdown anymore...I hope I see that day. Where is the "Steve Jobs" of automobiles?
 Come out, come out, wherever you are...the world needs you!

5. Next weekend is the big, big, big game. It's the Michigan State vs. Michigan foot ball game. Who doesn't love a rivalry game? I wish we could afford to go to the game, but thanks to Jeepy it will be just tailgating for us. Which is not a bad thing, considering we love to socialize and throw some down.  It is also Midnight Madness at Michigan State (the beginning of basketball season, and they throw a big gathering); Gerard Butler was there last year, and we got to see him at the football game the next day(it was AWESOME). I sure do hope someone awesome is showing up this year :). 
Can. not. wait. :)


6. And last but not least, the moment you have all been waiting for...okay specifically just us. WE FINALLY GOT CABLE! :) We told our story to the other cable company and they came out 3 days later. Now that is service, and we so pleased. 
WOoooohoooooo!!!!!!!!!



7. And if you're a new follower, or avid...thank you!!! I love all the comments given, and love reading everyone's blogs as well! So keep on bloggin' ...because I'm gonna keep on reading :) 

Happy October everyone, hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Happy Fall Y'all


First and foremost: Happy Fall Y'all ! :) 

Second: We still don't have cable! Ugh, I could tell you the hour long story, but you would be bored and turned off...and that's not my goal of this blog. But long story short: we have to switch cable company's because they couldn't get a line of sight. So yay for NOT being able to watch our shows...for probably another month :( 

Third: Instead of bitching and moaning about our horrific cable story, I decided to go to Hobby Lobby. I mean they had a sale, and it is fall, and I can be pretty crafty. So what better not than to make my own fall decor and document for my fellow bloggers :) 

First I started off by visiting Pinterest and getting some inspiration. Then it was all up hill from there....
JK, I had a trial and error moment...and I just had to share! 


MY new favorite picture, and my new favorite fall piece 
glitter pumpkin.....swoon :) 

Then I attempted the "monogrammed" look using burlap and glitter...it looks like hair ...gross!LOL




Round 2 


 And my final outcome. I love the scarecrow because he greets you with a smile :)


And I used the remaining crafts for a couple centerpieces :) 




Hope y'all enjoyed my session of arts and crafts. Now what? 
Oh thats right, I still have to finish our room and my vanity....stay tuned bloggers :)
