Wee Bit Wednesday

{one} what's your guilty pleasure tv show?
Well, this is tough because I watch SOOOO many reality TV shows, and most all of those are guilty pleasures. Probably the one I'm most obsessed with is Big Brother. I watch it 3 times per week and constantly read about the live feeds. It's sick really.

{two} ear piercings on men: yes or no?
Absolutely not for this gal.
{three} do you have dish or comcast?

{four} what's your favorite current fashion trend?
Right now, I'm really loving anything sheer. I love dark sheer shirts with skin colored tops underneath.
{five} if you could learn to do anything, money not being an issue, what would it be?
I would love to go to culinary school or maybe hair school. Both of those things would be cool to know how to do professionally.
{six} red or white wine?
Red for sure. Meredith got me hooked on Mirrasou Pinot Noir.
{seven} what type of food is your favorite (ex. italian, mexican, etc.)
I really love Mexican, but not the kind from authentic Mexican restaurants. Most of that looks dirty to me. I like Tex Mex more. Italian is also really delicious and Greek.

{eight} hp or mac?
I've used both and liked them both for different reasons. I like PCs for the familiarity. I like Macs for the ease of media and all the tricks.
{nine} what color is your bedroom?
White... Ahh, the joys of the rental.
{ten} what's your favorite form of exercise?
Probably running, even though I don't do it enough. I also like an abs class.

Summer Clothes

Time for another POLY. This is so addictive to me. I thought since time is running out on summer clothes, I would do one on those. Summer clothes are my favorite! Enjoy everyone!!!

MSU Football Apparel

So, I'm really excited that my bloggie friend, CALLIE, found out and shared with me how to use Polyvore to make clothing montages. Wow, this is going to be addictive. Well, I dove right in. With football season fast approaching, I thought my first POLY should be an inspiration for game day attire (at MSU, of course). Man, it's hard to find maroon clothes. Now, all of us gals know that football season isn't just a time to  support your team and tailgate; it's also a time to express your savvy fashion sense. Planning outfits for the entire football season is tricky, though. The weather ranges from burn my biscuits hot to brrrr rabbit cold, so I tried to include some things for all weather. Also, let me remind you that this is an IDEA board. I know that these items will link you to a site with some very pricey items. These are all items that I cannot afford. Some of you may be able to, but I am not able to. So here ya go everyone. This is what I'm dreaming about this football season.

Dear Hudson...

Dear Hudson,
You are one lucky boy. You have more clothes and toys before you've even gotten here than I have right now.
Super Jelly Belly
Aunt Nee Nee
We had a shower for Kristin this weekend, and it was so much fun to be able to celebrate and spoil this sweet baby boy. I just love him so much already. My mom was sweet enough to let us use her house, and the shower went wonderfully, if I say so myself. We went with a theme of rustic outdoorsy/sweet frilly little boy. This is pretty much the perfect mix of this little bambino's parents. The party details and pics are below.
{The invitation that we had designed on Etsy. We also had the shop design matching toile circles alternating with his name, monogram and blank for cupcake toppers and food labels. I recommend using Etsy to anyone. It's wonderful. They will edit the design as much as you want, and you have them printed yourself.}
{This is a wreath from my house that I added an "H" to. Pretty easy, and I think I'm going to add some other stuff to it for different holidays or times of year.}
{The welcome table where guests could leave a note for Kristin and Hudson. I'm obsessed with glass jars used as candle holders or really for anything you can think of. They are just so versatile. The wooden thing around them is just a wood frame that I bought at Hobby Lobby and have leaning against my shelves at my house. The birdies are from my mantle.}
{The instructions for the "wish bowl."}
{Lizzy made this baby carriage out of diapers, and we used it as a centerpiece for the gift table. Such a cute twist on the usual diaper cake.}
{Sweet Hudson's banner}
{Sweet Hudson's banner and his Mommy}
{The food table with all the wonderful food everyone made including fruit and dip, sausage cups, pigs in a blanket, yogurt pretzels, BLT dip, cake pops and mini cupcakes. You can't see it very well, but we made the food labels out of adding the blank toile circles to the tops of the glass jars with the food names scripted on top.}
{The mini cupcakes with the cupcake toppers just taped to toothpicks.}
{The cake pops that Amy Grace and I made. If you would like the instructions on how to do them, just let me know. I will warn you, though, they are time consuming and tedious.}
{The drink table with with delicious Sangria that Kimberly made. Also, there was water with lots of lemon, as requested by the Mommy. The straws are also from Etsy. Did I mention I love Etsy??}
{Closeup of the cutesy straws.}
{All of the hostesses, who were so sweet and did so much for the party. If you look close, there are three buns in the oven in this pic.}
{Last one... Pic with the Mommy to be. Fun Fact: This is also the photo debut of my new haircut.}
Have a great week, and I love you, Hudson!!!
