my house will be warm soon...

we do our best to conserve energy, so we turned our heater off when the outside temperature reached 50's. however, in lovely western ny it's been JUST over 50 and therefore a tad bit chilly in our home. so it is with great enthusiasm that we welcome sunshine and warm temperatures. we had a PERFECT memorial day weekend. it was beautiful outside and we enjoyed time with friends and family.

soaking in the sun.

linco bean couldn't resist either.

love those adelaide boys.

not a blogger convention...just family.
hottness is obviously in our genes.

nice part rae.

after we were married, i was quite excited about all my new stuff. however as time has gone on, i now tend to get most excited by old 'new stuff'. used. vintage. retro. old plates and glasses make my heart go pitter patter, but i have to contain myself...because after all i only have so many cupboards. here are a couple of thrifted finds i am enjoying...

i paid a whole quarter for this.

hall teapot i fell in love with on etsy.
my sweet hubby surprised me with it for valentines day.

even jake loves my teapot.

i will share more thrifty finds as i get more pictures.
enjoy this beautiful weekend!

picture pages picture pages

my husband is amazing at many things. taking photographs is one of them. he can snap a shot behind his back and it tends to come out better than my best shot. therefore, i let him take the majority of the pictures, and as you will see they came out a-maz-ing! ireland is beautiful, beautiful, beautiful and i would love to go back again someday. Without further ado: the photos.

i just can't get over how cute our little blue car is.

and the celeb is...

for those who read mand's blog, i know i have kept you in suspense for far too long. [thank you for the reminder rae]. now, before i reveal the long awaited photo, you may want to note that i find it VERY exciting to see celebs. so you may or may not find this as exciting as i do. also, you may wish to consider that if justin was not with me, i would have simply thought this was one buff guy, and honestly i wouldn't have recognized that i was eating dinner right next to a celeb. i have poor recognition skills people. i haven't even reached my 10 year reunion and i don't even recognize people i went to school with. forgive me. sooo....can you guess the celeb:

we ate at chili's [jfk airport] and he had the salmon dinner.
mand wanted to know why i didn't get my photo taken with him. i just clammed right up. maybe next time.
