Fabric Help

I need your help! I am in search of an awesome fabric website that I can order from online. Here is my goal: I want to purchase fabric to make my own curtains, pillows, etc. but I don't want to spend a fortune. Some of my favorite patterns right now are Chevron, Trellis and some other modern prints.

Here are a few inspirational photos:

Any suggestions?

Fall Fun!

Wow, we have been on the go non stop and it is sad to say that the only reason I have gotten a chance to blog is because I am home right now with a bad sinus infection! Boo!!!!! After being home for the last two days I am so ready to go back to work. Ugh! I can't believe those words just came out of my mouth, lol! Anyways, since I am home I finally got the chance to upload all my pictures from the last few weeks. Boy was there a ton!

Chris and I have been cooking machines lately. We made a deal to cook at least 5-6 nights a week and since its hard to just cook for 2 we have had lots of dinner dates with our neighbors. It's been a blast! Some of the recipes have turned out AMAZING but I have to admit one night the meal was not such a great hit so we ended up ordering a pizza. It was definitely a good laugh for the night but it was also our first time having to throw something out that was just unbearable! Note to self: I am not a cold soup kind of person. I learn something new everyday!

Buttermilk Avocado Crab Soup (from Cooking Light)
this would have been much better as a shot of soup
it looks good doesn't it, don't let it fool you
On the other hand we have made a ton of yummy dishes. Like this one:
Maui Maui Fish Tacos

A few weekends back my mom and I went on an all girls family trip to Fredericksberg. We had an absolute blast and we are already planning for our next trip back. The weather was perfect and the shopping was amazing. But most of all I enjoyed spending so much time with my mom!

Let the shopping begin...
Kristen & Joanna
Having fun at one of the local bars recapping in pictures and celebrating a special birthday!
Don't know what I would do without my mom!
Can't wait to go back!

The next weekend we had Ryan & Katie's Engagement Party. They are so meant for each other and we can't wait for their big day! The night was full of dancing, reminiscing, drinking and so much more. Even a ticket, lol! Don't worry it was only for speeding. I stopped drinking long before getting in the car. Chris on the other hand was plastered! Good times were definitely had!

Ryan & Chris
And then the shots began...they were totally dreading this (thanks Dani, lol)
And this is when it started to get crazy
I love this guy!
Ryan & Katie danced the night away
There is going to be a lot of this at their wedding!
This spells TROUBLE! These guys are forever friends
Chris aka Icon, Ryan, Christopher and Nick
Two Peas in a Pod
And remember the other day when I told you I was soooooo hungover cause the hubby got us suite tickets to the Gorillaz. Well the concert was AMAZING!!!! Seriously it was so much fun and everyone had a great time. N.E.R.D. opened up for them. Such a great band in itself so you know it was going to be a good night. We all had lots of drinks, took tons of pictures and even got to spend some time with the Texans Owen Daniels. Such a genuinely nice guy in person! Oh and Phil & Brandy were able to join us as well. They were celebrating their 8th anniversary! Congrats guys!

Brandy & I
such a fun girl!
Even Snoop made an appearance onscreen
Happy Anniversary Phil & Brandy!

Of course as soon as we go to take a picture with Owen my camera goes to some weird setting.
They put on such a great concert!
Drinks afterwards on a Tuesday night. Gotta love it!
Good music, great company, good times!

And then this past weekend we went to Dewberry Farm with a special guest. We got the pleasure of taking Miss Lila (Brandy & Phil's youngest) with us. We had a great time and so did she! She is such a people watcher so she was entertained the entire time! Ryan, Suz and Miss Nora even joined us for the day. It is a great place to take the kids but I think next year will be better when they can really enjoy all there is to do. It was a windy windy day and the dust was definitely kicking up. By the time we left we were all ready for a shower!

All strapped into her stroller. This is definitely an experience if you aren't parents but we got it down and at the end of the day we were pros!
Miss Lila!
We even did the corn maze
the rules...
Lila was glued to Chris for the day...great practice
About to enter the farm house
We even got up close and personal with the horse. He tried to bit Chris lol!
She was mesmerized by the little chicks

And of course she liked the baby cow as well
Even Chris and Ryan had a bit of their own fun! sweet. He is going to make a great dad one day!
Little Miss Piggy
And what better way to end the weekend than with a little pumpkin carving competition! Phil, Brandy, Ryan, Suz, Chris and I all sat on the back porch Sunday afternoon carving away and roasting our pumpkin seeds. It was hard to choose the winner and since we all did a great job we called it even!

My pumpkin!
Chris' pumpkin!
So that is just a little recap of what's been going on in our world lately. We still have a busy few weeks ahead of us but I promise to be better about keep up with the good old blog! Hope all is well on yalls end and hopefully I will be as good as new tomorrow and back at work!
Happy Tuesday!

That's BANANAS!!!

I am so incredibly hungover this morning! I mean realllllllllllllllly hungover! I am surprised I even woke up this morning and actually made it into the office. And this is part of the reason why:

Yep the hubby surprised me with suite tickets to the Gorillaz last week for last nights show!!! I had been wanting to go for so long and was completely stoked when he called and told me that he had 4 suite tickets for us to go. What an AWESOME man I have!

I wish my brain could function more right now but its just not happening. It was totally worth it though! And I know I am way behind in my posts. Sooooo....I will post again later when I am not a total zombie. I have lots of pictures and videos to share! Till then here is a nice shot of my husband just gorilla-ing around Target yesterday!

Haha...I go bananas for this guy!

Happy Hump Day!!!!

Hope you all have an AWESOME weekend! xoxo

I love this life!

Seriously I couldn't ask for anything better! I have an amazing husband that loves me for me even when I am a bit crazy. Yesterday I was a bit on the cranky side and he poured me a glass of wine and sent me out to have girl talk with the neighbors. Now he may have just been trying to get out of getting his head chopped off but he seriously knew that that was exactly what I needed and when I came back all was well again, lol. I have a wonderful family and wouldn't know what to do without them, especially my mom. I have some of the worlds greatest friends and they have really been amazing! And in general I am just really loving life right now! Job is just swell but let's not ruin the mood here ok, lol!

We have a jammed packed weekend ahead and I seriously CANNOT wait! Tomorrow I am having drinks and dinner with these two AMAZING ladies! I really don't know what I would do without them sometimes! We will be missing one other fabulous lady but she is having her engagement pictures taken out of town! So exciting!

Love them!!! Tracey & Jenn

Later that night Chris and I are celebrating our football loving friends 30+ birthday. We always love spending time with them and I am sure there will be plenty of laughter and fun for the night!

Saturday we are watching football with a huge group and then later going out to celebrate the engagement of this wonderful couple! Their 2011 spring wedding will be here before we know it!

Katie & Ryan

And then on Sunday I have a baby shower for our friend that is expecting their second! It's crazy when the guy you grew up with in high school and college was the crazy-running-around-NAKED-at-parties-drinking-till-he-passed-out-insane-always-looking-for-a-good-time-kinda- guy turns into the loving-devoted-husband-and-father and we get to be apart of it all. It's fun growing up sometimes and getting to witness all the amazing life changes. So happy for Matt & Natalya!

Let the fun filled weekend begin! I promise to post a recap from my weekend in Fredericksburg! I need to upload all the pictures from my camera and then we will be good to go! Happy Thursday everyone! xoxo
