Our New Bar Cart!!

Markel brought home the most wonderful surprise yesterday!  He bought a bar cart from Target and brought it home. =)  I guess he found it online + used a coupon and then picked it up in the store.

We have been searching for a cart for about 3 months now and we finally have it!!  I’m so excited to start decorating it this weekend =)

Threshold™ Wood and Brass Finish Bar Cart $129.99

Weekend and Week and Photodump

This past weekend and week were full of fun dinners, friends, and Christmas cheer!

Friday night, I went to dinner with some of my favorite pentee girls and we had the most delicious dinner at Chaya brassiere in mid-city, Los Angeles.

 Best cocktails!

Saturday, Markel and I moved our things into storage (until we can move in together)~ and that was pretty crazy.  It’s so hard to predict what items I’ll want to keep or use in 6 months, what items I”ll never need, and what things to keep from my childhood.  *tear *

During the early evening, I actually had to work at UCLA but it turned out to be pretty awesome since I was in charge of the wine and cheese reception =P

For dinner, I went to Pete’s in downtown LA on the corner of 4th street and Main.  My friend Christian celebrates his birthday here every year and it’s become a beloved tradition!

Sunday, Markel and I went to church, ktown and then made 6 wine cork letters (along with some SUPER cute reception numbers!).  For dinner I met my friend at Hara sushi and caught up ❤

 And now…it’s the weekend already! =)

Happy 4th of July 2012!

Wow I cannot believe it’s already JULY!!!  WowzaAaa  Every year I love to make big plans for this day.  I don’t’ know if I could say that I’m super patriotic, but I love any reason to throw a great BBQ, have friends over and make a mean cocktail.  In the spirit of America, red/white/blue, and all things patriotic…I leave you with this collage of sparkles and red/white/blue!

Pinterest: Fattie Delights

Part III of my Pinterest Chronicles~ (Part I and Part II)

In case you didn’t know, I have a food blog!  It’s called Fattie Delights (also on wordpress)~ Which leads me to my next pinterest board: Fattie Delights!  The best part of this site is that if you click on the picture, it immediately takes you to a cooking website/blog with a recipe of how to make it.  I love to entertain and this access to such a wide variety of ideas has made party planning extraordinary.  I love taking credit for a super adorable and original idea =P

This list is quite extensive so I’ve broken it down by category =D
