A "Comeback"

I saw snippet of Matt Lauer's interview with Lohan this morning. Doesn't look too riveting, unfortunately. She's claims to be sober for 'awhile now' and said she definitely should not be compared to Whitney Houston or the path she went down....

I always thought of a comeback as this great reinvigoration of a person or their career. Uhh, seems like we're missing at least one, in this case. For starters, I might suggest getting rid of the overly bleached platinum locks and pasty complexion. If anyone knows the value of a good spray tan it's (used to be, anyways) Miss Lohan.

What happened to this adorable girl?

In the peak of her career, I might add.

What's for dinner tonight?

Chicken Pesto Paninis.

I'm kind of winging the recipe. So, we'll see how it all turns out. Regardless, I'm looking forward to a change-up from our regular weekday eats!

I Got Nothing (*Courtesy of Blogger)

So, I've tried to publish a post twice this week and blogger will not let me do it. I cant link anything, format, or attach pictures. Beyond annoying.

My irritation may be exacerbated due to Lent starting yesterday. Sugar crash from Fat Tuesday?! Hopefully, I'll be back soon!

2 Things

Happy Birthday, Dad!

And last night before the SEWE Gala @26 weeks. 6.5 months pregnant. Wowza!

It's been ages since I've done one of these posts.

only $79!
(*Minus the shoes. The dress would pair much better with metallic wedges or something of the sort) 

LOVING this show!

The anchor conveys the general theme of the room.....I'm really looking forward to receiving the baby's bedding, glider, and other exciting items for his nursery!

Currently making my way through this book. Pretty interesting and amazing stuff. Recommended to us by moms in the know ;) Anyone have experience with this?

Let's be clear, I'm not actually 'loving' this one. But it does interest me and I'm a sucker for anything Bravo-related. According to various media outlets, Real Housewives Of Miami has been renewed for a 2nd season. Seriously? I kind of thought it was a snoozefest.


Oh. Yes. Mama Elsa. The ONLY reason I may be watching next season.

Brush With Fame

I completely forgot to mention this earlier in the week. Army Wives was filming on our street all last weekend. I know the show regularly tapes here in Charleston but I've never had any run-ins with the cast or shootings. Of course, Cooper and I took a few leisurely strolls around the block to check everything out. To be honest though, I don't think I'd know or recognize any of the actors. It was cool to see all of the cameras, crew, wardrobe, etc, etc.

Anyone watch Army Wives? Am I missing out?

Tonight, Mark and I are going to dinner at CPH in Mt. Pleasant.

I've been on a big burger and fries kick lately. If you're local (or just visiting!) and haven't been here, GO! Their burgers are delicious and truffle fries are amazing. I've also heard they have a great selection of beers on tap (I'm not really an expert).

I've also been dying for a treat from Cupcake. Now, I'm no brew expert but Cupcakes, I know. I've had them from bakeries and shops all around town and this is hands-down my favorite place. The hardest part? Choosing just one!

We had these at our our wedding in lieu of a traditional cake and they were a huge hit. According to their website, Red Velvet is the best seller (no surprise there!).

I am really looking forward to having an entire weekend free to check some items off of our to-do list and just relaxing!

And lastly, nerd alert: Breaking Dawn comes out on DVD at midnight.

Weekly Happenings

Last weekend, ~24 weeks

I consume ridiculous amounts of candy. This week, I decided to go without.

Latest guilty pleasure...I know it's not even Valentine's Day yet but I love me some Cadbury eggs. Yes, they are only in (a very few) select stores. If you want to know where to find them in the Charleston area, let me know. I've got the hook-up ;) 

HA! My candy break lasted for about 6 hours. I figure with Lent right around the corner and my tradition of giving it up during that time, why deprive myself now?! So, I decided to try and simply reduce the amount I eat each day. This is going well.


The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 7 with Heather Dubrow

The crazy ladies of the OC are back and it looks like they'll be bringing the drama this season. Yet again. The new cast member, Heather, seems tame, which I'm sure she's not. Otherwise, why have her on the show?

Did anyone catch the RHOBH reunion pt. 2? Not as boring as the first part. I have to say that Brandi Glanville entertains me. My mom told me that Camille isn't coming back next season. Eh, either way I'll still watch every week (and all of the re-runs).

Can someone tell me when the Caramel Delites started being called 'Samoas'?! Is this a regional thing? Very confusing...

A few things that have brought me joy this week: 1) Girl Scout cookie sales are in full swing. The prospect of having mass quantities of thin mints and caramel delites makes me one HAPPY lady (thank you Dave and Maggie!). 2) Lunch with the ladies today! I'm looking forward to some good eats at Five Loaves DT. 3) Anything baby related. I love feeling him move around in there and be so active all day and even during the night now. AND the baby's room is painted a color that I am happy with! 4) Last but certainly not least, Mark being constantly sweet and attentive (despite my moods).

Oh, and I've been woofing these down like there's no tomorrow. I can only find them at select places and am becoming embarrassed at the amount of trips I make to purchase more. Pretty sure the cashier just pities me. Oh, well.
