Weekend Lookbook ::  Memorial Day Weekend

Look No. 1 – Flower Shopping

It’s Spring and that means it’s time to buy flowers and get our garden planted.  We spent a little time (ok, a lot of time) at our favorite garden center, Kent Greenhouse and Garden, in Kent, CT choosing plants and our color scheme for this year.  Then we spent the rest of the afternoon getting everything planted and watered.  It didn’t seem like we’d bought a lot until we got home and had to get all of those suckers planted!

Look No. 2 – Playing Around With SnapChat

Shhhh…… don’t tell anyone yet, but effie’s paper is on SnapChat!  Well, sort of …. I spent the weekend, playing around with the app and trying to figure out things like filters and where I should move the text etc.  I’m smitten with Instagram, but I’m just a little obsessed with SnapChat.  You can find us on SnapChat – effiespaper!  Follow us for a real sneak peak of life behind the scenes.


Look No. 3 – Fun, Friends & Frivolity

It’s always fun when friends come to visit!  It’s even more fun when they bring pink bubbly!!  We had a lovely holiday weekend filled with friends, laughter, dancing (you know – the whip/the nay-nay/the wobble), bbq-ing and lots of the bubbly stuff.  It was a great way celebrate and remember those who served our country and died for our freedom.
