Hi friends! Hope you had a nice weekend! John and I spent the weekend in my hometown in RI so that I could attend a bridal shower on Sunday. One of my best friends from high school is getting married in May and had her shower yesterday. I ordered the wine rack from their registry, but wanted to take the gift to the next level. (This could be part of the reason why everyone says I'm over the top, I like to call it creative)
I can't take credit for this idea at all, I found it on Pinterest ... but love it and put my own little spin on it. Along with the wine rack, I gave her a wine basket of firsts! A bottle of wine for a few big FIRSTS she and her soon to be husband will have.
First Fight - a bottle of Clean Slate.
First Anniversary - a bottle of Monogamy
First Baby - Sweet Bliss
First Christmas Eve - Spiced Apple wine
First Dinner Party - Champagne!
Each bottle had it's own cute poem label to go with it! If you want to do this idea for a shower, you can print out the cute little labels on this website in a variety of colors. Totally free. Just scroll down to the bottom for the link. http://www.occasionsonline.com/bridal-shower-gift-wine-basket-poem-tutorial-free-download/
It was a big hit and a bunch of you asked for more info. when I posted it to Twitter! So here ya go! If you have any questions, email me! Amanda@985krz.com. All of the wine was found at my local PA Wine & Spirits! :)
I'm starting to wonder if I should be writing reality tv blog. I email, tweet, and facebook message with so many of you that watch the same shows and I feel like we should all just be having one giant conversation. They sometimes happen in facebook threads ... but there is just so much to cover.
I'm not even going to waste my time or energy on last night's Bachelor finale. The sum it up - Juan Pablo turned out to be a real dud and showed his true colors. I'm not even mad at him for not saying "I love you" because if you don't feel it, don't say it ... but I am mad at him for being so COMPLACENT! Nothing fazes this guy. Anyway, the After the Final Rose was totally awkward and fake. There is NO way he and Nikki are actually together. That's all I have to say about that.
Onto more important BRAVO matters . . . Real Housewives of New York returns tonight and I can't help but wonder . . . does anyone look at Carole and wonder . . . ARE YOU STEVEN TYLER'S SISTER??? Is it me ... or do they look like twins?
No really ... take a look. CLICK HERE. I posted this picture on Facebook a few days ago and no one really said anything. Whether you watch the show or not you can appreciate how THE SAME they look, right? I'm not hating on her, I actually like her a lot ... but how come no one else is noticing this?!?!
Please tell me i'm not nuts and they really do look related.
