Surprise parties are my fave

March 31, 2009

Last weekend we helped orchestrate a surprise parties for one of our good friends, Jon. And by help I mean, I was a sounding board for all of Natalia’s awesome ideas and Ryan bought the balloons. It was fairly simple but so much fun.

– the best invite I’ve ever received (designed by Natalia)

– proof that we brought the balloons

– although Peeps are not my fave Easter candy (chello, Mini Eggs) they 
made for some excellent decor.

– a garland makes every party better

Did I mention I also met my new best friend there? 

And the birthday boy of course! Happy Birthday Jon.

Songs that take me back to middle school are my fave

I think this if my favorite theme for Blog Party Music Week. Why? You may ask. Well, who doesn’t like remembering braces, socials and your first crush?


I Want It That Way – Backstreet Boys (still a personal fave)

Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls by TLC (I so wanted to be Chili)
Wannabe by the Spice Girls (and yes, I did see Spice World)
Another Night by Real Mccoy

Make sure to take a look at other people’s picks:

Dear Abby is my fave

March 30, 2009

I’m still offering free advice for those who don’t have the time to wait for Abigail Van Buren to answer.

I suggested to Natalia that she could try out this wall storage idea to store her magazines.

I told Lauren that an Eat Shop Guide would make a perfect hostess gift.

I recommended eye cream and Origins concealer to help Karen combat her dark under eye circles. (If anyone has suggestions for a cheaper alternative, let me know.)

And I told Michelle to decorate her shelf with objects of varying textures and sizes.

I also handed out some heavy duty relationship advice. So now I’m just waiting to get syndicated, naturally.

Blog Party Music Week is my fave

Jackie thought of the great idea to have a week full of good tunes. Everyday Jackie, Maggie and I will be posting a few of our favorite songs that go along with a theme. Today’s theme is Happy-Go-Lucky songs-Songs that put a smile on your face and can totally turn your mood around. My picks were chosen based on the fact that when my i-pod is in shuffle mode, I never skip them.

I Believe in a Thing Called Love by The Darkness (the video is completely ridiculous)
Falling by Ben Kweller (if you haven’t heard this yet, you’re welcome)
Swimming Pool by the Submarines
Fans by Kings of Leon
America by Neil Diamond (American patriotism at it’s finest)

Visit Sweetie Pie Pumpkin Noodle and Magchunk for some more happy songs. Feel free to join in on the fun on your blog or just post a comment of some of your faves. I’m always up for something that will inspire some freestyle dancing.
