Drunk pumpkins, GOT SHOES?! and Game Day weekend recap

Weekend recap time!!! I know, yay right ?! Our weekend was somewhat low key. As usual it's gone in a blink. Here it goes.......... *a lot of pics today

 Friday night!!!

Shipyard pumpkins and vanilla vodka= Drunken pumpkins!

bbq chix pizza and linguica

 Yup, that sums up Friday. I actually burnt the linguica pizza but we had enough salad and bbq chicken to feed everyone. We ended the night with Scattegories and some dance moves. Love these nights!


 My best friend works for a company called South Coast Visiting Nurses. They specialize in Hospice. She has only worked here for a year and decided to design her own event. The event was called "Hope Takes Flight". She pre-ordered butterflies and they arrived in this little envelope. The idea was to buy one in your loved one's memory and release it at the event. Since my dad had Hospice care, this was something I wanted to participate in.

This is Amy, I'm so proud of her!!!

There is a butterfly in this envelope

He's taking Flight!!!!!
Memory wall of butterflies!!!

 When I had left, the event had already raised $16,000. I would say it was a success wouldn't you?!!! 


So let me start by saying thank God that I went out and bought 3 pairs of shoes prior to watching the Patriots play!!! I probably would have purchased 10 pairs after they lost! When I'm mad, I buy shit. My sister had a triple points coupon for DSW , so I had to stop in to buy a pair of shoes. Well, I came out with 3!!!

Needless to say if your are New England Patriots fan, you are disappointed. They blew it!!!

Destroyed Shellac from nervous picking!!!

This game drove me and the hubs so crazy, I swear we were both going to barf by the end!!! We lost by a field goal! WHO MISSES A FIELD GOAL???????????

On to bigger and better things today! I got the hubs Carrie Underwood tickets for our anniversary! We are going to go to Providence tonight for dinner and then to her show! I'm so excited!!!
I hope you all had a great weekend and have a fast work week :)

    Anyways, this particular blog conference had a great mix of things...from blog design tips, blogging tips, writing tips, networking tips, working with brands etc. I highly recommend this conference!! I'm going to another blog conference in March (Blissdom). It'll be another first for me! Bloggy Boot Camp was my very first blog conference. Blissdom will be my next. Bloggy Boot Camp is a 1 day thing and Blissdom is 2.5 days. Bloggy Boot Camp had an event a few months back in Philly...would that have been close to you??

    1. ahhhh thanks for the tip!!!! This is the stuff that I need to learn :) I live on the Cape in Mass :( So even Philly would be some distance. How come they don't have them in boston? lol

  3. Wow! You had a great weekend! {minus the patriots losing} I'm so jealous you found 3 pairs of shoes at DSW! I don't have one near me. Boo.
