In the spirit

This month is full of birthday parties!
Over the weekend, I went out for a girls night on the town to celebrate another birthday of a friend.

First we went to dinner at Barrio in Capitol Hill.

It was delicious.
Totes reminded me of Matador ( which I LOVE)
All the drinks and all the food looked fabulous.
I had the Butternut Squash Sopapillias and Apple Spinach salad.
I will definitely go again.
The service was great as well.
The only complaint I have about the restaurant was finding the front door.
Perhaps my blonde is sinking in, but we could not figure out how to get inside the building.
It was like a fortress.


Me, Angela & Danica


I also made a cake for the birthday girl.

After dinner we headed to Julia's for a show at La Faux.
I hadn't been there before and it was pretty impressive.
The headliner of the evening was Shangela who apparently was the winner of RuPaul's Drag Race show. Which I have never seen.
He was amazing though.


I Wish I had some pics from the performances but I didn't have the greatest seat in the house.
I also had two kids under the age of 8 sitting next to me.
Not sure they belonged there, with all the gyrating hips,but they seemed to enjoy singing along to all the songs!

Caramel apples

Not the most practical treat.
Surprisingly difficult to eat.
Top heavy, sticky mess.
Jaw breaking, teeth under stress.
But I still love you,
 my tart apples wrapped in a sweet caramel dress.









AND
did you know they made these now?!
What a life saver

Meatball Problems- Shut your mouth you dirty little hamster part 2

As some of you may remember, last Halloween Steve and I had planned to dress as Snooki & Pauly D.

Things got crazy, we ended up skipping the festivities and the hard work of ordering accessories online went by the way side.

Fortunately, a friend of mine decided to throw her husband a Surprise Thirtieth Birthday party Zombie style.
We decided it would be boring to just dress as plain old dead people.
So we brought the Staten Island dump back and went Jersey on it.

This photo pretty much sums up the night.
In retrospect the hair was a little more Amy Winehouse than Snooki, although they really seem to be interchangeable persona's I suppose.
Maybe Amy would have been more fitting though, given her current situation.

Too soon?

They told me to go to rehab...

Burlap ain't just a sack no more

Check it.

Gone are the days of storing produce in your cellar.
Gone are the days of endangering your ankles as you speed hop across the grassy knoll with your kicks tangled up inside a bag.

It's the year 2000 ( in Conan voice)
and burlap isn't just for tubers.

It's for furniture and everything in between.
Durable? Yes.
Itchy? Maybe.

But, style ALWAYS trumps comfort... doesn't it?
Yeah, I see you hiding those Louboutins.














Would you put burlap inside your house??

Happy Trails to you....until we meet again




Remember how much I love little Shasta trailers?
And remember how obsessed I am with weddings?
I think I just found the perfect photo to sum all things wonderful up!

In love with this cart

Is it possible to have a relationship with a piece of furniture?

This is practical and wonderful and versatile and industrial and rustic and funky all at the same time.

I need this.
Extend it high for a bar or buffet

Lower it for a console table 

Complete with cool drawers and baskets.

Now that's a good use of space!
