Hope everyone has a fantastic Thanksgiving. We all have so much to be thankful for.

As my friend Leah says, "Gobble Gobble, getting down with the Double "G" y'all!!!

Here is a pic from the best Thanksgiving Movie of all Time! I think I'll serve some popcorn, jellybeans and toast for dinner tonight.

Whatta Night Part 2

Here is a YouTube clip from the actual show last night... As Matt keeps saying, "It was the best show no one saw. "

Oh Whatta Night!!

Last night Matt and I went to one of the best concerts ever at the Music Farm. As I previously mentioned, Joe Firstman is one of our favorite artist. He is from Charlotte and is super bluesy with a dash of bluegrass.

On stage with him last night was Mark Bryan from Hootie and the Blowfish and Tyler from Crowfield. It was an acoustic round table show. It was super chill and they just jammed out.

This is not from last night but here is Joe playing 'Saving all my Love' courtesy of YouTube. Sorry for the poor quality video. I'm at work right now on 3 hours of sleep and too lazy to search for anything better.

After the show we were hanging out with they guys. Turns out when Kristen drinks she likes to talk to musicians in British accents. So Fun!

Also, as of last night we will be having a day trip to Savannah on Monday. Joe is playing in a coffee house there and its a Free show. So if anyone is interested hop aboard!!!

Pure Michigan

I've lived in South Carolina now for 3 1/2 years. I've made so many friends, married a guy from Mississippi and bought a home but I still consider myself a Michigander. It truly is a beautiful state but I definitely don't miss the snow. :)

Mom, me and Sister Meghan in front of Spicers Orchard

I always love this time of year in Michigan... actually more like October, its a little too cold now. Here are a couple pics taken at my favorite Apple Orchard 2 years ago.

And yes I still say 'Pop'. I will not call it soda nor will I call a Sprite a Coke Matt. Just Saying.

WaWa Bottles

I am known for always reusing my water bottles which turns out is not healthy with the plastic bottles. When they run their course I put them in the recycling bin.

Currently I use a Nalgene bottle. I love how big it is but hate that I always manage to spill it all over myself while in the car or on the elliptical. Now it turns out these aren't good for you due to polycarbonate (#7 on the bottom) , which may leach Bisphenol A, an estrogen-like chemical.

I guess I have to buy a SIGG bottle. Which may take time to get use to since drinking out of aluminum is just weird.

I found this fun Glass Carafe from Pottery Barn. I love that its shaped like a plastic bottle.

Wait... I gotta go because Matt wants me to Ped Egg his foot. Its just wrong and its not going to happen.

I came across this fun and super easy Wreath craft on Living With Lindsay. I can't wait to make one, but for which room? I love things like this but i don't think Matt likes things too feminine.

Here are the items you will need.

For step by step instructions find it here.

I love the little details in the foyer below. Too sweeeeeet.

Happy Belated Anniversary Babe

A month and a day ago Matt and I were married. Wow!!!

Here are a couple of photos taken from our rehearsal dinner. Our rehearsal dinner was such a blast. We had a laid back Charleston Harbor Cruise at sunset. Alex Toline with Lowcountry Explorer did a wonderful job at such a great rate. Matt's mom and sister had it catered by Cru Catering. YUM!!! I'm still drooling over the salmon.
The Mamas... Sue and Coco
Dave and My Dad
Maddy and Eric... love this pic of my cousins

Britton and I

DJ and Matt... talking about something important I'm sure.

These photos are by Jason Miller. He took so many wonderful photos over the wedding weekend it was hard not to upload all of them. Thanks Jason!!!
