Oh, How Pinteresting: Large Utility Totes



For those of you who haven't heard, June is $10 Large Utility Tote month is the Thirty-One world!  This is bag that I fell in love with.  It introduced me to Thirty-One and made me fall in love with all of the bags and products.  It is hands down the most useful bag on the planet!  So for this addition of Oh, How Pinteresting Wednesday I though I would share with you just how awesome these bags are.

Yes it is a shameless plug for my business and if you want more information on ordering them, just let me know.   ;-)

House Warming Party, Wedding Shower & A New Adventure

I should get the blogger of the year award. (please note the dripping sarcasm)  We had a house warming party on Saturday and I only took ONE picture.  One!  That is it!  What was I thinking?  On the plus side of things, it was one hell-of-a picture.




I mean, this does sum up the party in a nutshell. (The boat came from Homegoods since I've been getting lots of questions about it!)  We had friends and family float in and out most of the late afternoon.  We drank, ate, played some bags and then headed in doors to watch the Hawks beat the Kings and move on to the Stanley Cup finals!!!!!  Way to go Hawks!  (For those non-hockey followers out there, that would be the Chicago Blackhawks.)  We had a great time on Saturday and I'm so glad so many people could come check out our new pad!

It was a good thing no one looked in closets or in the basement.  I was super sick last week and the clean up for the party didn't really get started until Thursday morning.  Needless to say, A LOT of stuff got shoved in closets & tossed into the basement.  I've been spring cleaning for what feels like FOREVER, and I'm not done yet.  This week I will be grinding on it.  De-cluttered home here we come! (Fingers crossed)

Sunday was my sister-in-law's wedding shower & it was a lot of fun.  It was great to catch up with family and friends that I haven't seen in awhile.  We played some fun games, ate some great food & of course she opened all of her fabulous gifts.



That was my weekend in a nutshell.  By the time last night rolled around, I was exhausted.  It was awesome to get home, put on sweats and curl up on the couch with my hubby and watch a movie.

In other news, I am starting on a new adventure.  I am super excited to announce that I am expanding on my absolute LOVE of bags.  If you are a new follower of the blog, you may or may not be aware that I am absolutely bag FREAK NUT!  I'm a independent consultant for Thirty-One and I absolutely love being one!  I want to provide my customers a well rounded bag shopping experience, so I have signed up to be a consultant with Thirty-One's new sister company, Jewell.  It is a line of slightly higher end bags and other accessories Thirty-One does not carry.



I would love to share any and all of the bags I sell with all of you!  For more information on Jewell, you can check out my website.  I am super excited to growth both with Jewell & Thirty-One and am thrilled to be on this new adventure and would love to partner with any of my blogger buddies to promote my companies, so let me know if you are interested!

Hope you had a great weekend!  Are you starting on any new adventures?
