Free Movies Rock!

Tonight I just got back from a steller night out! Last week, my friend Megan sent me word that you could score free passes to the movie Juno. I had been seeing previews and I really wanted to go. Plus the writer, Diablo Cody, is from Minnesota, so you know that there was going to be a lot of MN references, and there was!!! I met Shannon after work and we did some uptown shopping before dinner. We both bought scarves and headed over to Chino Latino. There we met up with Ellen. We sampled some really fun drinks with some very interesting names!!! Shannon's drink came with these fruity vials to mix into her drink. Tre cool!
Along with the fun drinks we shared a couple of apps. Before we knew it, it was time to head over to the Lagoon to meet up with Megan. The place was packed, because it was first come first serve only. Luckily we were in right away, found some good seats and enjoyed the show.

It really was a great movie, witty humor, and YES! lots of MN city references! Plus at the end of the show we all received Juno T-shirts! How fab! I love a good dinner and a movie!
And if that wasn't enough, after all the hoopla I went home to see who won the title of America's Next Top Model. Well Kelly and i picked the right girl from the start... cause we're good like that. The prize: A dinner for the three of us at Chambers in Minneapolis. Posh Posh! More fun and frivolity continues tomorrow....

Oh, superfluous and sensible of shoe... you guys must be kindred spirits. Half the time I don't have a clue who or what you are talking about! Rain Wilson? Maybe it's a MN thing..?

Oh, I bet you mean Rainn Dietrich Wilson, who lives in Los Angeles with his wife, fiction writer Holiday Reinhorn (Big Cats), and his son, Walter Mckenzie Wilson who was born in 2004. I know THAT Rainn Wilson.

Closer and Closer

Wedding planning... oh JOY! I'm at the point where I can finally take a breather and just enjoy the time right now. I have been a bad friend... not returning phone calls, not answering emails. I get stressed out and crabby about wedding invitations and silly wedding to-dos. Tomorrow is my last day of work for 5 glorious weeks! I need these days off. I come home from work and there is always something going on at night! ALWAYS! T and I made a pact to not add so much to the month of July. To just enjoy the last month as a "dating" couple before we are a "married" couple. T has to work on selling his house, I need to work on my house getting ready for out of town guests and a rehearsal dinner in my backyard. So if we are absent in July... it's just because we decided we need some us time. On a great note, our pre-marriage counselor says we make a great couple. I mean we already new that, but it's nice to hear it from a professional. :)
The invitations are i…

Glitter House

I'm obsessed with glitter houses! Especially old vintage ones. I have a nice little collection of them, but I also thought it would be easy to make my own.  My mom ordered a bunch of cardboard houses from Hobby Lobby online. Sadly, there are Hobby Lobby stores in MN, but they are in the southern part of the state. One day I'll have to make a special trip down there! 

You can really do whatever you want with these houses. I painted mine first with acrylic paint and then sprinkled some mica snow flakes on them. I got  2 huge bags of Mica Snow Flakes off of Ebay last year. On the roof I painted glue on and then put a ton of glitter and snow flakes. 
I had some vintage glass balls I used on the wreath and trees. But really you can use anything you like!
