Weekend Winks – Auntie Style!

Fabulous and exciting news from Nashville this weekend!

Proudly introducing the long-awaited, swift arrival of our newest Iowa family members – making me a first time Aunt and Teddy a cousin (which gives him a new nickname CT – Cousin Ted)!

Biggest gifts ever!


While soaking in our family’s fabulous Friday arrivals, my mom and I added to the adrenaline by traveling to see the ELVIS LIVES show in Kentucky.


Go see this! On tour now (click here for dates and tickets).

And while I think I might have been the youngest concert-goer (putting extra pep in my high heeled step) in the theater, Elvis had love for all of the white-haired worshipers in the audience.

And while I was screaming at Elvis to give me one of his damn scarves, my mini-me was getting excited to go see Justin Bieber in Miami!

My little mini-me is a Beliber for sure!

A Beliber for sure!

Saturday led to a little ribbing of my longtime friend, Riq, who turned the big 5-0.


Nice necklace, huh?

I found my favorite party-goer in about 3 seconds flat.

Opie and I bonded (don’t tell Teddy!).

Running into a hungry, hungry hippo forced me to white knuckle my wine.


Thank God hippo teeth aren’t shark sharp.

I further admired a magnet, left for me on my desk at work this week. Wonder why?


Do you think that this should read 1st glass and 2nd glass, since my wine glasses hold entire bottles of wine?

Sunday morning I hiked calories away, so I could justify lunch at my personal Cheers (favorite menu item is a Skinny Pirate).


Mimosa specials on Sundays!

Teddy bathed on a sequin bag while I watched the SAG Awards and wrapped goodies for my niece and nephew.


Who needs bubbles when you have sparkle?

And speaking of sparkle, one of my Iowa besties found this delight on the floor of a store. I now want this on every entryway in my mini-manse and on each stair leading up to my front door. Too much?



Hey, did I mention I became an Auntie on Friday?!

Any high chair or monitor advice (motion, video, just audio) for the new parents?

I can’t wait to get my hands on them next weekend!

Enjoy a fun day Monday!

    Congratulations Auntie M and CT!!

  2. Congrats to you!!! Being an aunt is awesome. More awesome than a grandparent because grandparents still owe some pesky accountability to the parents. Aunts? None.

  3. John says:

    Congrats to you auntie and uncle!

  4. Riq says:

    Your friend who just turned 50 is one darn good lookin, svelt, brilliant, wonderful, talented guy. Oh, wait…that’s me! By the way, a party never truly becomes a party unless 2 important things happen…1. A “Yard-O-Beef” is served and…2. Megan, Janie, Dean, and Big Mike show up!

    Megan – congrats on being an aunt! They are adorable!

    Monitors – definitely go with a video monitor! Best purchase we made for baby #2 – saves you waking them up just to go in and check on them! You can actually SEE them and know they are okay!!!

    Best wishes to everyone!
