Pinterest is changing my life!

Thank you so much to Molly for introducing me to Pinterest. I love it so so much. What is Pinterest?
From the website: Pinterest is a virtual pinboard
Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.

Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. To get started you have to ask for an invite but it is so worth it.

I am finding recipes, clothes, gardening tips, EVERYTHING. I am so obsessed!

Chocolate Chip Cookie and Oreo fudge Brownie

Filed under: Food, Stephermendations — iamstepher @ 9:53 pm

I couldn’t decide if I should make chocolate chip cookies, brownies or an Oreo Sunday for dessert tonight, so I combined all of them!

You could totally make this with your own recipe but I like things quick and easy so here are my directions:
Buy one roll of slice and bake choco chip cookies, one box of oreos, your favorite brownie mix and ice cream…and maybe some chocolate sauce.

Roll out the cookie dough in an 8×11 pan lined with parchment paper. Add one layer or Oreos. Pour prepared brownie mix over the Oreos.

Cook at 350 for 45 minutes! Delish!

Thanks to Pinterest for the idea!

Please accept these pictures of adorable animals as my apology for not blogging since getting engaged/married. I will try to be better.

Anguilla- the last untouched island?

Filed under: Uncategorized — iamstepher @ 11:49 pm

When Andy told me we were going to Anguilla for our honeymoon (20 minutes before we landed in St. Maartin) I didn’t know what to think because I had never heard of it. I wasn’t sure how Andy was able to keep our honeymoon destination from me for so long but now I am realizing it’s probably because a lot of people have never heard of it.

Anguilla has been getting a ton of press lately because one of the beaches here was recently voted one of the top 5 beaches in the world. Coming from Cancun, I had pretty high expectations and I have not been let down. The beaches here are perfect. Everything you would hope for, white sand (some of the beaches are a beautiful pink coral because of all the coral deposits) blue water and great scuba diving. The most incredible thing about the island is that it is totally untouched. There is virtually no economy here except restaurants and private villas. Our first three days we stayed at Rum Punch Villa which I think will probably always be the nicest place I have ever stayed or been in my entire life. We totally lucked out and got to stay there for free (long story but Andy is awesome). We are now staying at the Viceroy which is fantastic but so different from the rest of the island. More updates to come. I can’t believe we are leaving here so soon!

Can you guess what is not natural in this picture?

Filed under: Uncategorized — iamstepher @ 3:17 pm

Hint there are only 2 unnatural items and neither of them are my nose.

In preparation for the wedding, I decided to do a few fun things for myself. The first you might notice are the white feathers and the second is the fake eyelashes. First, I am shocked at the negative feedback people give when you do something different with yourself. If your friend gets their hair cut, don’t wait until after they cut it to tell them it was a horrible idea and you don’t like it. Would you walk up to someone at a party and tell them that you don’t like their outfit and you wish they wouldn’t have worn it? I hope not! So please don’t tell me that you don’t like my feathers, or you think its weird/cheesy/etc. because obviously, I like it. OK? OK!

Rant is over.

Now for the eyelashes. These are not just ordinary fake lashes. They are lash extensions and they are amazing! They are called Lash Extreme and although you have to sit through two hours of tedious gluing and blinking the results are worth it. They are usually applied at the spa and your stylist glues each lash (about 50 per eye) to your individual lashes. I have already had mine on for 3 weeks and they still look great. It’s $100 for the first time and about $50 each month for refills. I don’t know how I am going to go back to my thin stubby lashes after the wedding.

PS. The wedding planning is pretty much over and I feel stress free!! I can’t wait for Mexico!

Kate Middleton inspired nail polish? Yes!

Filed under: Uncategorized — iamstepher @ 2:57 pm

Butter London has released a limited-edition shade called “No More Waity, Katie” – a nod to the nickname the tabloids gave Kate before William put a ring on it.

I actually really like the color. It might be great for my upcoming “No More Waity, Stepher” wedding!

Anthropologie wedding dresses!

Filed under: Uncategorized — iamstepher @ 10:54 pm

Yep! The line is called BHLDN and they launch February 14th, 2011. The line also promises to have stationary, veils and other wedding necessities.

If they could just get their registry figured out before my wedding I would be pretty excited. Not to sound too much like a pessimist but I am sure the dresses are going to be unbelievably overpriced. We shall see.
