Weekend Update


Friday afternoon, I curled up with some popcorn and the Casey Anthony lifetime movie. 
Yeah, I'm addicted to true stories. Blame my mother. 

After Mike got home, we made our own pizzas (from scratch), 

and started to work on putting together some wedding presents. 
(Spoiler alert, we didnt get it finished)

Then Mike schooled me in Wheel of Fortune. 


 We headed out to the Brewer's Supply Store,  

then over to Flames for brunch. 
Brunch and bottomless mimosas. ;)

We scurried home, because it was such a gorgeous GORGEOUS day, 
so that we could take the Shiva for a long walk.  

When she got home, we gave her a new "indestructible" toy. 

and here's a video you can watch. 
It will prove how indestructible this stuff is. 

We watched NCSU beat UNC , 

and then headed out to Tied House. 
This place is DEFINITELY a winner for a new local place. 
GREAT beer and GREAT food. 


 We headed out early to get in line for the book signing at West Elm for Young House Love. 
They really went all out to keep the people in the lines happy, 
they handed out rice krispie treats, waters, pecan pie, MILKSHAKES, 
in ADORABLE teeny solo cups
 and, of course, COOKIES!

Then, of course, as you wander through the store, 
all sorts of decorating ideas come to the light. 
I LOVE this vase and the paper flowers, 

 and there were thousands of ceramic animals. 
I wanted the turtle, but Mike said no. 
I also want that bear on the top, cause it was a speaker. 
Mike said no.  

Then, MIKE looked at this lamp and said "I LIKE THAT! Can you make it?"
Why, yes love, yes I can.  

Then, of course, I got my book signed. 
I'm super shy around people I admire. 
John and Sherry included. 

The rest of the day we ran errands, 
played with shiva, bottled some beer, and got ready for Monday. 

Here's to another week!
