Weekend In Eight

How was your weekend?? I hope your year got off to a great start! It's been a few weeks since I have done a "Weekend In" post, so today I wanted to fill you in on some exciting things that have happened along with some random things I found over the last few weeks! Here goes...


1. Remember this tasty drink that I featured here? Well, over the holidays it was featured on two food websites! It was featured here on Yummly.com and here on FoodGawker.com. So exciting. Thanks so much to both sites for the feature! Also, thanks to Natasha of Schue Love for featuring it as well! Have any of you tried the drink?


 2. Did you know that the startup fund for Pinterest was $40 million?? The AJC (the Atlanta newspaper) recently featured a very interesting article about Pinterest and I was in it! A journalist at the AJC sent out a tweet asking people to e-mail her if they used Pinterest. So I sent her an e-mail and she gave me an interview over the phone! Click here to read the entire article...


3. I have a new favorite app that I must tell you about! It's called Diptic. It enables you to make collages out of photos you have saved to your phone, Facebook, Instagram, etc. The power of the iPhone never ceases to amaze me...


4. A special thank you goes out to Tina of The Enchanted Home! She presented me with the Blog On Fire Award last week. My acceptance speech of Five Things will be up soon! Tina is moving into her dream home this week. By dream home I mean DREAM home. Her closet alone puts Carrie Bradshaw's (in the movie) to shame. Her home is absolutely gorgeous and I highly encourage you to stop by her blog to check it out!


5. So how's the New Year cleanup/cleanout going? Is it going at all? If not, this great and straightforward checklist might help ya out. If you are working on your shedding your wardrobe, click here for another straightforward list of things to do...


6. Blogs make me spend money. Case in point- these two books that I have seen 1,000 times on different blogs. Well, I bought them over the holidays and let me tell ya- they were money well spent. The illustrations are really great in The Perfectly Imperfect Home and Deborah's advice is really easy to follow. Do blogs make you spend money, too?

7. I had lots of time over the holidays to find some new blogs- well they were new to me. I thought I'd share a few of them with you...

Happy Monday! Oh and Roll Tide!!!
