Loooooong Weekend

Actually the weekend went by too quick as usual, but it was jam packed with lots of great things.

We closed on our house! But.... we didn't even have a chance to really enjoy it because after closing, we had to drive up to South Carolina for the night for my brother's marine graduation the next morning.

Me and my little brother the marine!

It's amazing how much he's changed, but how much he's still my little brother. So proud of him!

One of my friends from work watched Roxy for us when we went up to SC for the night. She's never tried Skinny Girl Margaritas so I got her a bottle to try out as a thank you.

New pics of the house to come once we're more settled and I'm not as exhausted :-P

Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July weekend!


  1. Been dying to try Skinny Girl!! Is it worth all the hype? I think I'll have to give it a go and find out for myself ;)

  2. Stopping by from Jenna's!! I love Skinnygirl!!

    Your blog is too cute!!

  3. Just found your blog from Jenna's. Super Cute. And I have to ask, are you from Connecticut, because I recognize some CT casinos in your pictures (I was born and raised in CT, but live in Los Angeles now).

  4. Thanks for the comment on my blog. I've just started reading your blog and I love it. How exciting about your new house!!!

  5. LOVE Skinny Girl! I definitely think it's worth the hype. Margaritas were always my go-to drink, but I hated how they rang in around 500 calories each.. yipes! Skinny Girl is only 100 calories per serving, and I like to desribe it as switching from Coke to Diet Coke. You get used to it and once you do, and then you try the regular drink it's too sweet.

    Also, Bethenny just announced that she's releasing a Skinny Girl Sangria at the end of this month in most markets, and all markets by mid August. Super excited about that one as well!

    @Lauren.. yes I was born and raised in CT but live in FL now

    @Kristin you're welcome and thanks! :0)
