Eeeeek! I'm so giddy right now! SMP was a constant source of inspiration for us (well me, who are we kidding) and so I am absolutely thrilled they've chosen to feature our wedding today! Lots of love and thanks to all my girlies involved and of course, our fabulous vendors!

If that isn’t enough, Away We Go is directed by Sam Mendes, who produced Revolutionary Road and The Kite Runner, as well as directed American Beauty.
This film has a bit of the Garden State feel but offers situations of pure hilarity. Although labeled a comedy, Away We Go has some incredibly thought provoking and moving moments.
If you’re looking for both funny and tender moments to curl up on the couch to, this rental is the way to go!
My Rating: 4 Stars

I have a good friend, whom we shall refer to as CBH, who just LOVES to make fun of Obama’s election campaign slogan: Hope and Change. While I won’t get into politics just yet, I happen to love the concept of giving back and volunteering that Obama has endorsed and encouraged. Side note: For CBH, this is a constant source of amusement, which I think makes him a little bit evil even though we still adore him. While it may not be the best motto for a presidency (not that I'm saying Obama is using it as one), I think the general message is sound.
Sooooo, without further adieu…
With the recent earthquakes in both Chile and Haiti, I just want to remind our three followers and anyone who randomly stops by our blog to donate what you can to the relief funds for these two countries. Even though the death toll in Haiti is much larger, the most recent earthquake in Chile has left plenty of people without electricity and water. So I apologize for the extra side of cheese, but both have been left in devastation and both are in need of our help!
To donate $10 towards relief efforts in Chile, here is a list of options…
Text “4CHILE” to 50555 to Chile relief efforts through Convoy of Hope
Text “CHILE” to 50555 to support Chile relief efforts through the World Program
Text “REBUILD” to 50555 to support Chile relief efforts through Operation USA
To donate $10 towards relief efforts in Haiti, here is yet another list of options,…
Text “HAITI” to 90999 to support the Red Cross relief efforts
Text "GIVE10" to 20222 to support the relief efforts of Direct Relief

The roughly 30-year age difference raises some eyebrows, but Gyllenhaal makes it clear that Jean takes the plunge with Blake of her own volition. Further, it takes a minute to adjust to Colin Farrell portraying a country sensation, but he quickly convinces by playing against all expectations. However, these are mere foils for Bridges' performance, which proves his place as one of

Halle-freaking-lujah! Girl scout cookie season is finally upon us! I pulled up to our local grocer this week and was thrilled to find a group of girlies out front selling all of my preferred flavors (well almost). I bought a box of Peanut Butter Patties for myself and Thin Mints for the hubby! Unfortunately, they were already sold out of our favorite Caramel Delights. Tear.. :( But... I was promised there would be LOTS more to come! Hooray!
