Louboutin Love

Zach is the best.  For our two-year wedding anniversary, he surprised me with a gorgeous pair of Christian Louboutins.  I adore them and I only wear them on special occasions.  We recently had a date night at a nice new restaurant in Tampa, Ulele, and I busted them out for the occasion.  :)

One days my feet will punish me for contorting them to this extreme - but until then I shall party on.

Blurry Dancing

Our friend took these admittedly blurry pics of Zach and me the other night.  We danced our hearts out and generally enjoyed life, so I thought these were post-worthy.

Zach is right-handed and I am left-handed.  We always end up sitting on the wrong side of each other so our elbows bump during dinner.  Hence the attitude.

Go Bills!

Last Sunday Zach and I visited a local sports bar that is frequented by local Buffalo Bills fans.  The Bills lost, but it was fun meeting other football enthusiasts.  :)

And Then Girls Night Got Interesting

Sadly, my camera battery died just in time for things to get interesting during our recent girls' night at Chez Glaser.  Here are a few of the final photos of the evening.

A Few Shots From a Night In With the Girls

One of our best friends, Trista, moved to Washington, DC several months ago.  Recently we were lucky to have her visit Tampa and stay with us.  We had a few of the girls over one night for wine and sushi and we all had a great time being silly and enjoying each other's company.  Here are a few of the pictures from the early part of the evening.  More to follow.

Brinkley is happiest when she's being held.  Doesn't she look happy?

The beautiful Samantha :)

Downstairs Bathroom Before and After

Get excited.  Are you excited?  This my friends is the moment you have all been waiting for (or something).  The downstairs powder room B&A!  

Beginning to end, we repainted the walls and ceilings, replaced the toilet seat and innards, added a mirror, toilet paper holder and hand towel rack, and added the gorgeous new marble-topped vanity.

The vanity was a bit of a chore.  We bought it online and the dimensions were wrong on the online description, so we ended up with a vanity that was too deep.  Zach and I took a saw and sawed off the back of the legs of the vanity.  It fits now, but I also gave myself a nasty gash in the process that will leave me with a scar for life.  But hey.  Lookathatgorgeousvanity!  It transforms the whole room.

Before:                                                                                     After:

A good friend and childhood neighbor of mine dug these glass bottles out of her back yard - they're super old and cool-looking.  I've used them to decorate my dorm room in college and every place where I've lived since then.  

What do you think?  I must say, it's nice to finally have this room finished.

Autumn Decor

I finally bit the bullet and bought season-specific decorations for the house.  We're having Thanksgiving at our place this year - the Glasers are flying in from all over the country for the holiday.  I can't wait!  

Zach and I are making Thanksgiving dinner today!  It's a dry run for the real thing.  I'm making my grandmother's fantastic sweet potato crunch and garlic mashed potatoes.  Zach is outside smoking the turkey.  I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.  :)

See the creepy spiders on our columns?  And the creepy bat?

Boat Day, Part I

Zach and I recently joined our friends Kitty and Tara on Kitty's gorgeous Sea Ray.  We had a great time.  Here are just a few of the pictures we captured.

Kitty and me

Cushman, Kitty's dog

Who wears a football jersey on a boat?  This guy.  It's safe to call him a die-hard Buffalo Bills fan.

Kitty was sure to have football on tv for Zach.  
Also, um, can we acknowledge how nice this boat is!?

Kitty with Axle, Tara's sweet pup

More to come!
