Hi friends! I've been quiet on the Bridal Blog lately because I honestly haven't accomplished A THING on the to-do list in a while. I have a feeling that means it's going to be one BUSY summer of wedding planning tasks, but we'll get it done. Actually I can't say that I haven't done ANYTHING, just nothing big. I've done a good amount of ordering from Etsy ... that's where I found all of the skeleton keys we are going to be using. I'll post a photo later this week! They are SO cute!
I wanted to share this listing I found on Etsy that I fell in love with. I'm going to be needing this after our wedding. This artist turns your wedding photo into an artistic illustration! Isn't that BEAUTIFUL!?
I've been so busy, running here and there and everywhere...and involved with a bunch of stuff, so the Manic Monday Menu Blog Feature I've been doing has been on a little vacation. I may post something soon. So Check Back Later Today.
BUT, Right now I am giving you a chance to help choose my next NEW blog feature/features.
CONTACT ME with YOUR SUGGESTIONS on what my NEW Blog Feature/Features should be, since you read my blog...what do you want it to be about or involve?
(examples: food reviews, product reviews, restaurant reviews, etc or anything else you think would be worthy)
This week we had some majorly FUN guests in the studio. The first, Chef Michael Langdon from Plains. You may know him from Hell's Kitchen. He's on the show this season, still hasn't been kicked off, which I find very impressive especially since I think Gordon Ramsey is kind of like an angry kitchen Darth Vader. Dude scares the crap outta me.
Anyway, Michael had us blind taste-testing some of his dishes. I got none right. But he let me eat them anyway, which I thought was super nice of him. Note to Lissa: tuna and duck are not the same thing....
Chef Michael - cool, funny, tall.
THEN we had former intern Danielle (now one of my best friends in the world) on the air with us - LOVE HER! :)))
Everybody smiles when Danielle's around!
And finally... on the Friday Morning Happy Hour... our friends from The WOODLANDS stopped by! Here's Simone, the hot bartender, sharing a drinkie with me :) Go see them this weekend! Their deck is now open and it's beauuuuuuuutiful! Almost as beautiful as Simone... she'll make you one of these bucket beverages = lethal!
Yesterday the Fiance and I ran errands and had a lazy day. It was pretty awesome. While we were wandering through Target he said, "we're totally out of toothpaste." We grabbed out usual Crest 3D White and carried on. When we got back home, I brought the new toothpaste to the bathroom where I found the old tube in the trash. I don't know if you can tell from the top photo or not, but it doesn't really LOOK empty . . . and it wasn't!
I decided to cut open the toothpaste tube to see just how wasteful we really are. Thus, the bottom photo.
I was able to squeeze THAT MUCH toothpaste out of the bottom of the tube after cutting it open! EYE OPENING to say the least. This is totally going to make me think twice the next time I think we're ALL OUT! That's a lot of product!
Just wanted to say THANKS everybody who made it out to my songwriter's showcase at the Woodlands the other night! What a fantastic crowd!!! My friend Sara (such a sweetheart) got a few minutes of footage from my set - thought I'd share....
I've been glued to the news, UStream feeds, and Twitter all morning since I woke up ... crazily seeking more information throughout the man hunt for Suspect 2 in the Boston Bombings. A few of you have asked where the National Anthem audio we played yesterday on the show came from. During all of this chaos, it seems most appropriate to continue to sharing this beautiful display of pride from the Bruins game the other night.
