My $5.10 Chair

Happy Memorial Day weekend! Chad, my brother, and I leaving for the Lake of the Ozarks in the morning, but I still managed to squeeze in a little project before we leave. I was given a chair from the restaurant where I work at. The seat cushion was ripped and the paint was all chipped w/ gum stuck to the bottom of the seat. I bought a $5 can of spray pant and found some super cute shabby chic fabric at a yard sale for 10 cents. Its no where near perfect, but not too bad for my first furniture project. Here are some pics.... please excuse the quality. I only have the camera on my 8 year old Nokia. I broke my digital after too many green beers on St. Patty's Day... sad face. Hope you like!!!!

Why is Your Book Wet?


Hey guys! Sooo my friend Nicole and I had a girls night last Thursday. Started of with the best martinis EVER at Bailey's Chocolate Bar and then on to Jen Lancaster's book signing after. We had a blast!!!!!!! The book signing was held at Mad Art Gallery in Soulard. The signing started off with a reading from Jen's new book "My Fair Lazy." Then she did a Q&A. Then it was time for the signing. Nicole and I had never been to an event like this so had no idea what to expect. Well it was packed. We seriously stood in line to get our books signed for way over an hour. It was worth it though!!!! The art gallery is actually in an old jail and the cells were just begging for a photo shoot! Here are some pics of the night.....

Me and my idol!

I'm on a Boat

Last weekend I went to the Lake of the Ozarks to celebrate Mother's Day with my parents. It was my first trip to go boating with them. We started the day off with bloody marys at the marina bar and grill. After our breakfast cocktail, they gave me the tour of their boat and the docks. It was pretty much the windiest day EVER so we couldn't take the boat out right away. It was also FREEZING so we spent most of the afternoon sitting on the back of the boat with the tarps up.

We ventured out for a bit to go pick up the flowers for my parents upcoming wedding ceramony that they're having on the boat. Had lunch at the marina restaurant and that's where my mom and I ordered Twisted Parrots.

Turns out Twisted Parrots are delicious! They look like girly drinks, but they had 3 shots in them! We left the restaurant after lunch and I couldn't stop talking about coming back after dinner and doing shots of Wild Turkey Honey. BAD IDEA. The wind had finally died down enough to take the boat out.
Then I took a small cat nap. The alcohol was starting to get to me!!!
After we brought the boat back in, we hung out on the boat and started getting dinner ready. After dinner we watched Betty White on SNL and then got ready for bed. Wild Turkey Honey shots never panned out which was probably a good thing. I slept like a rock!!!!! All the fresh air and wine really knocked me out. Sunday morning we got dressed and headed up to the restaurant for Mother's Day breakfast and momosas (champagne and cranberry juice). After breakfast I had to get back on the road. Was sad to leave! The lake is so much fun and I can't wait to go back!!!!!!

Here are a few more random pictures from the weekend.

Hope you had a great Mother's Day Mom! I love you!!!! XO!!!
