This past week there were a series of events popping up all over the country, in honor of one great movie, The Big Lebowski. When first released, it bought in a measly 17.5M- but not long after, the movie became a cult classic and one of my all time favorites. So happy weekend to you all...I plan on relaxing on my "rug that ties the room together", sipping on a White Russian (a Caucasian as they call it in the film) and watching for the 25th time the character so lovingly called "the dude" work his magic.

catch it people- Missoni for Target is launching Sept 13th. I will be in Miami that day, so FML. However, when i return that evening, you betcha my first stop will be 25 minutes west of my house to the "good" target at the Willowbrook Mall. I dont care if you walk with a cane/ have babies in tow/or if you are just plain walking too slow, i will shove you down and fight for some of these amazing items that are only available until Oct. Most coveted, the tableware (shown below) for my dining room and some cute lamps to jazz up the office and guest room. Anyone want to join my team and help me shop? I promise I will let you keep something small.
Last weekend the husband and his siblings threw a surprise 60th bday party for their father. It was a nice little gathering with about 30 adults and way too many kids up in Worcester MA...
setting up for the party...Jaime, Ed, the husband, Cousin Annie
Look at his face. Not sure if he is surprised or about to go all postal on us.
Could have been because he saw this...a nice little slideshow that Gwen and I put together with photos from when he was a baby, all the way up through now.
Our goddaughter Savhannah. Trouble maker.
Checking out his gnome Boston cream cake. Best. cake. ever- props to jaime
Nothing like forcing him to take a pic with us!
My nephew locking me out from the patio. Such a sweet 4 year old.
The husband making a nice little speech about his old man. He broke out the purple for this party, so you know it was awesome.
Jaime's friends, who gifted the old man some depends, in the case he has an accident
The husband and I after 4-5 cocktails, circa 630pm.
The Santagate clan. Looks like a crayola crayon box with all those colors.
Clearly they are sober...dancing the night away to some oldies tunes before heading back home to the fire pit for some more good times. Happy Birthday John!
Enter my outfit for the next 4 months...or well, until it snows, and even then I will probably bust these out anyway:

Still obsessed with Pinterest- it really is a great way to take my mind off of work for 20 minutes each day. Such lovely photos. PS- going to get a new little hairstyle today...can you tell by some of these below that my mind is completely torn on what to do?
