This weekend was eclectic full of vampires, corn dogs, cake spins, cover bands and Design Star.
Here are a few highlights:
I finished the book Twilight this weekend. I loved it. For those of you who have not picked up on the media frenzy, it's a great story about a teenage girl who falls in love with a Vampire. Wild, I know, but worth it. I'm already into the second book and loving it. I can't wait till the movie comes out in December! Has anyone read it? What did you think? This is tempting me to be the last person on earth to give into Harry Potter.
Corn Dogs, Cake Spins & Cover Bands
This weekend was a Homecoming festival for a couple of my friends in my small group. A few of us tagged along, not locals at all, to enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of this annual festival. Let's just say, it was the highlight of my weekend. Twenty bucks goes a long way. I was able to purchase a generously sized BBQ Pork Steak (a St. Louis BBQ staple), grilled corn, 1/2 a funnel cake, several rounds of the Methodist church's cake spin (we won a VERY neon yellow lemon cake, it was interesting), a face paint of a ninja turtle on my cheek, and a few beers and sodas. There was also a cover band each night, and let's just say our huge group was the life of the dancing party, till the 4 year old showed us up with his Guitar Hero moves. I love small town festivals! Next stop, tractor pulls and demolition derby at the Bond County Fair!
As always my mom and I camped out in front of the TV last night to catch Design Star (with thin mint blizzards in hand I might add). It was the kitchen episode. The whole team had to execute a kitchen makeover in 24 hours with 10,000 dollars. I thought it looked nice, but not exceptional. This big drama of the whole show was poor leadership and the fact they didn't even attempt a back splash, instead they just painted behind the cabinets, not the best idea. They were also criticized for not making any bold design statements in the room.
Here's the Kitchen, post-makeover What is up with that window treatment? I hate it:
I wanted them to use something like one of these types of tin material for a back splash. What do ya think?
As always, let me know your thoughts!
Come back and see me!
