three things

this week i’ve been really inspired by some DIY! here are three things i am going to try to do this weekend! hope you’ll be as inspired as i am!

+1- these coasters are great and i feel like i am constantly looking for them around my house.

+2- i don’t know about you, but i love instagram and i use it all the time. i really love this idea of turning your pictures into pieces you hang on your wall! and i think these look super chic! –like the black & white too.

+3 – i love this idea of changing a plain white tee into some awesome! not sure i feel about the neon, but i want to make one!

well i hope i’ll have something to show by monday! i’ll have a busy weekend though if i get around to all of these! if you try them let me know.


instagrams of waco weekend

here are some peeks into our weekend and new house. jamie and i (and the cats) are completely exhausted. moving sucks the life out of you–and this monday morning i’m wishing for an extra day to help me recuperate and/or finish things up. we still have a few things at the old apartment and need to clean it as well some painting to finish up. BUT jamie and i are going home on wednesday for his sister’s wedding, which i am really looking forward to. i’m throwing a lingerie shower with mary at her new house which i’ll get to see for the first time. so here’s to the beginning of this week flying by and the end of it moving wonderfully slowly to soak up some tennessee sun and spend every second with family.



the weekend/ in the smokey mountains.

this weekend, jeremy and i took our first vacation since our honeymoon. we drove up to the smokey mountains, about 30 minutes outside of gatlinburg, and stayed in a beautiful bed and breakfast called christopher place with our friends joseph and palmer.

all we did was relax, eat really good food, talk, and enjoy the beautiful scenery. it was quite spectacular. we went to the apple barn, went to a wine tasting, and had a fancy meal at buckhorn inn.

sometimes it’s just good to get away for a quick breather to refocus. here are some photos documenting our trip from my iphone, jeremy’s iphone, and my nikon:

i hope that you had a wonderful weekend as well! have a wonderful monday. xo-m.

Weekend Update.

Normally, this post comes out on Monday. But, the SAG awards were on Monday. So, what does that mean for you?!? You get an extra day and and extra pictures in your weekend update. Score. You can thank the Screen Actors Guild. Anyways…

A lot went on this weekend. Some really exciting stuff and some really scary stuff. And at the end of the weekend, Jeremy and I were just thankful.

We spent Friday night in. Redbox and Homemade Black Beans and Rice. (Incredible. Recipe here.)

On Saturday, Jeremy’s parents were almost home- they got into a car wreck. Everyone is fine, but just a little banged and bruised. We were so glad that we could be with them and are so thankful that everyone is alright! So, Jeremy and I made a surprise visit to Clarksville on Saturday.

When you go to Clarksville you have to go to Blackhorse. Even if it is an hour and a half wait.

We headed back to Nashville that night and had a wonderfully lazy Sunday.

Grocery shopping. Notice that Jeremy is in charge of pushing the grocery cart. I am not allowed. I hit things. Specifically Jeremy’s heels. Whoops.

Then had fro-yo for lunch. We LOVE Sweet CeCe’s. We got it free. We’re still not sure how that happened, but pumped all the same.

Went to the gym to work-off the fro-yo lunch. (side note: why do they always play sad movies in the cinema room at the y? they played we are marshall. i am trying to concentrate on my breathing– crying does not help.) 

Then pulled out the tried and true Pro/Con lists for some upcoming decisions. Thank you, Rory Gilmore.

Then Monday I headed back to C-ville. Spent the afternoon with Lauren and Emily. And my family.

My parent’s house is perfection.

These guys missed me. And I missed them.


How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?

Happy Tuesday, Mary


the weekend.

This weekend the weather was weird and crummy. It was like 60 degrees one minute and then 38 degrees the next. (We slept through the tornadoes! Whoops!) The sun decided to not show its face AT ALL. Awesome. But you have to admit the fog looked pretty cool.

We ate at Germantown Cafe with my parents for Nashville Originals Week. I predicted that the Coconut Curry Salmon would be in my belly and I was right. And it was GOOD.

I went out for a girls night. Whiskey Kitchen. Yum and yum. Their pizzas are incredible. And the girls and I recommend the Blackberry Jeulip and the Marmalade Whiskey Sour.

We watched one of our favorite TV shows. (While flipping back to football.)

We made some yummy treats. (Poppyseed Bread and Fruit Smoothies)

And best of all, I just got to hang out with this guy.

I hope that your weekend was relaxing, wonderful, and exactly what you needed.

Happy Monday! Xo, Mary

the loveliest little thanksgiving, part 2

Jeremy and I had a wonderful Thanksgiving break and I hope that all of you did as well.

1- Jeremy and I ran in Nashville’s 5 mile Boulevard Bolt on Thanksgiving morning with about 8,000 other people.

2- Got my first Starbuck’s red Christmas cup. Caramel Brulee Latte is my favorite.

3- My mom’s beautiful Thanksgiving decorations.

4- Thanksgiving FEAST.

1 & 2- My babies, Willa and Duke. They snuggled up with me to watch the last half of the Macy’s Thanskgiving Day Parade and the  Purina Dog Show. Willa and I were very upset that the Weimaraner didn’t even place. Oh well, there’s always next year.

3- Jer enjoying a s’mores at our bonfire with some friends.

4- Game time. Apples to Apples is my favorite. And I would like everyone to know that I won. Twice.

We loved spending time with our families and are so excited about the start of the Christmas season. My focus is now on getting our tree (a real one, of course!) and putting up my decorations!!

be magnetic…

hello all! hope you had a good weekend. they always seem to be too short though.

here’s a diy i created and they make for great christmas presents/stocking stuffers.one of my favourite apps on my i-phone is instagram. it such an awesome way to share what’s going on in your life as well as document it! i got my instagrams printed here –the miniprints ($12). and the rest is in the step-by-step images…

Here’s what you’re going to need:

** make sure that you don’t cut too close and that you seal them well- i made this mistake the first round and they came apart, but its an easy fix- just put them through another pouch and good as new.

and there you have it! an awesome way to fill the blank space on your fridge too! i hope you enjoyed this DIY and it will help you with some of your christmas presents (if you’re going to –order soon because i remember it taking a bit to get to me)!
