good morning loves.
i hope you all had a fabulous weekend!  our was quite eventful.  fun times and thankfully no hangover, although i can't say the same for my husband.  he spent all day yesterday asleep.

so first i'm linking up with sami for my usual weekend update and then i have some exciting news to tell you about :-)

so we celebrated halloween this weekend by going to the casino in cherokee to see lil jon.  well lil jon decided not to show up.  what?!? yeayahhh he didn't show up.
a no show!

but we ended up having a great time anyway.  and yours truly was one of the finalists in the costume contest along with these lovely ladies.

i was tinkerbell minus the wand, which i left at home... :(
my husband decided to just go as himself instead of the hillbilly he was going to go as

(please excuse our friend matt for photobombing)


so as i said before we ended up having a blast and dancing our asses off. 
and sunday was a day for recovery :-)

*11 things about me*

1. i'm a newlywed and just celebrated one year of marriage with my handsome hubby
2. we have two furbabies who we treat just like children. they are seriously spoiled rotten.
3. my favorite food is pasta with butter and parmesan cheese.
4. one of my favorite things to do is sit in front of the tv and watch a chick flick while reading a girlie magazine and drinking a glass of wine.
5. i'm a huge worrier. i worry about everything :(
6. i'm the oldest of 6 children
7. i've been to i think 43 of the 50 us states.
8. i moved to atlanta to get the "big city" experience when i was 23 and moved back home a year later.
9. i live in a very small town in the mountains of western north carolina.  so small in fact that we actually just upgraded to a super wal mart...
10. i'm obsessed with jessica simpson.
11. i used to clog and i still do on occasion when wine is involved :-)

*11 questions*

1. Do you believe in love at first sight?
no i do not.  maybe lust at first sight, but definitely  not love at first sight.  i think you need to get to know the person before falling in love with them.

2. What is your most embarrassing moment? 
well i've had a few of those in my days.  i've fallen flat on my face in front of people, and i've had my share of embarrassing drunken moments as well.  so i can't say that i've had just one notable embarrassing moment that overseas the rest of them.

3. How old were you when you had your first kiss?
sweet sixteen :-)
4. What was your favorite TGIF show growing up?
favorite tgif show would have to have been boy meets world!  i loved cory and topanga.
5. If you were a Disney princess who would you be?
i was obsessed with the little mermaid when i was growing up so i would have to say ariel.

6. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go?
oh that is easy... italy!!
7. What would be number one on your bucket list?
well number one on it right now is to visit all 50 states.  it just seems realistic considering i've been to almost all of them :-)
8. How many times a day do you check Facebook? {or twitter, instagram, blog..}
oh gosh... um alot!  instagram not so much, my blog is number one on that list and facebook would have to be number 2.
9. What would your favorite date night be? A night in? Or a night on the town?
definitely a night in.  i'd much rather be in my cozy house with my husband and enjoying a home cooked meal!  and the bonus is if you happen to get a little wine drunk, you don't have to drive home!
10. What was the best gift you ever received?
i've had alot of great gifts, but the one that sticks out most in my head is a few years ago when my grandmother gave all of the grandchildren an entire album of our baby pictures.  it had so many that i had never even seen before.  it was very sweet.  my engagement ring would have to be up there on the list too.  it was custom made from his grandmothers diamonds on both sides of his family.  they are over 100 years old!!! yeah he did good :-)
