Best and worst thing about being a MOH....

Giving the speech.....

I have to give a speech at my BFF Liane's wedding in 16 days. I am UBER.STRESSING. about it. I know it'll be fine but any advice? 

So we just got Apple TV and let me tell you, it is the best! How fun is it to play the music off of your TV. 

The shower was great this weekend and the batch party for Liane went very well! Some cute and not so cute pics! :) One funny story, we were leaving the first bar and one of the bridesmaids had to pee so she went in between two cars, I was there "helping" her. So out of the blue we see a guy walking towards us with a flashlight, yep you guessed it. It was a Cop. She was about to get a ticket and then another Cop came over and they ended up knowing each other...So she walked away with a "never do it again"! 

OK, so any help with the speech would be very wonderful!!!! 

Erik and me

Here is a picture from this weekend. Me and my gay best friend Erik. We dated in high school, and he was my prom date! Let me tell you nothing was better than having a gay prom date!

Love you lots E!!!

Only ok if you're Kimba....

I had a wonderful weekend! More on the weekend later, this post is just about today.

Today in Charlestown was the Bunker Hill Road Race, I knew A & B would be running so I laced up my running shoes and set out in the pouring rain to check out the festivities and to try to locate them in the Navy Yard before they took off. Successful on both counts! I saw all of the Townies set up their chairs and reserve their spots on Main Street for the race and the parade and was able to wish A & B luck! I came back home quickly and showered (have never been so soaked) as I was walking out the door I saw Music Guy give B a high five! Bummed I missed him run by but MG was there and I screamed GO BILLY, to only realize I was only screaming to myself!

Coll picked me up and we headed North to attend a fabulous graduation party for the oh so fab Libby! Can I just please preface that if Coll and I ever plan to attend somewhere we've never been and we're together we absolutely under no circumstance will be able find the place on the first try. I'm just saying... We cruised the strip of Hampton Beach at 11:30am and of course had to stop for A) gas and B) help...decked out in white, pink, navy and pearls with a Lilly dress hanging in the back. We threw our Vineyard Vines totes in the backseat and went on our way (with directions of course). We knew we were on the right rode and felt pretty confident....we said lets look for the house with balloons and we'll know that has to be it. So we found the house with balloons and pulled over both thinking to ourselves this right? I looked at the gal in the front yard and she sure looked at me, i checked the address and well not the house...mind you we were pretty much parked and out the door (well I was). Back on route and only another few blocks we arrived at our destination. We were greeted by Libs and Devil Dog.... Best greeting ever if you ask me!

We had a wonderful time and was so tickled to be able to meet Libby's wonderful friends and family. We have a picture of us three that i'll post this week! (Thanks D!)

We headed back to Boston (found our way NO problem) and Coll dropped me off in Beacon Hill for our Father's Day celebration! It was a wonderful afternoon!

We're back home now and Charlestown is still rocking, these Townies are pretty crazy!!!

I'm ready for the Celtics this evening, but spending a good hour + running around town in the pouring rain it will be a struggle to stay up...BUT I know they'll take it tonight so I'm ready!!!!!!


PS, anyone watch the US Open yesterday? T.I.G.E.R....we watched history last night with those two putts!

Tough to take

Tim Russert was one of the biggest influences in American Political journalism. 

Every Sunday morning was spent watching Meet the Press in my house. This is one of the biggest elections our Country will ever see and it is so sad to know we'll be going through this without him.

Tim spent a lot of time in Boston as his son attended Boston College. We would see him all the time attending Sox games and he just moved his father into a retirement home here. So very sad. My heart goes out to his family who were in Italy continuing there vacation Tim had just returned from when they heard the news.

Chris Matthews said it best "We lost our quarterback tonight".

Shoes shoes and more shoes


I just bought the shoes for my gals, 6 pairs of shoes for $260! I used the 20% coupon and also they have free shipping!

Shoe Buy and the coupon is "FATHERSDAY08".

Wait did I just buy 6 pairs, but I only have 5 could I not buy myself a pair!

OH MY GOD, i just heard about Tim Russert that is so sad, I knew it was Sunday morning when I'd see him on Meet the Press.

Flops on Pair Tree

What does a grosgrain ribbon belt and 6 pairs of flip flops have in common? Many things, preppy of course is the first thing that comes to mind. Or maybe flip flops made out of grosgrain ribbon...

But actually none of the above for this example!

See the really cool flip flop "shoe hanger". How super cute is that?/! I think it would make a great gift. Maybe for your flip flop loving bridesmaids? Who knew storing your flip flops could be so cute!

My Pair Tree sells this little cuties, you can also pick which belt pattern you like!

Enter "Kimba" when you checkout and receive free shipping!

Thoughts on these bad boys? Is the bling a little too much?

Triple Brown

I sure hope Big Brown wins the Belmont today, I think it would be very good for the sport!

We're just about to head out on the boat and I'm very much looking forward to getting out on the water! We won't be down on the Cape for a few weeks so we have to soak it all up this weekend and what a great weather we're having!

Will Hillary take a freaking seat already, I am sick of seeing her bright pantsuits...she has no clue.

Off to the dock!

Tie One on

I finally just picked out the tie for the wedding!

I have fallen in love with two only to days later have it taken off the site and to never be seen again. Now that I think about it i actually posted them each time I found them. Oh well here goes nothin'.....

Compass Tie in Raspberry

This fits our theme perfectly and I like the random pink really it adds to the look. I was looking to do something other than navy and white and when I saw the Compass motif it was perfect!

Should have more wedding updates soon, only three months and a few weeks left!

Thanks for hanging with ATK the last few months, lots going on here and more great things to come!
