2010 in Review 30.12.

Jan 10

Spent the New Year with my love and dear friends…unfortunately this tradition will break this year. Our friends that we’ve celebrated with the past few years will be in California (LUCKIES!) this year.

Launched Hi-Fi Weddings!! With over 2 thousand hits a day, I’m certainly pleased at how my little wedding blog broke into the scene. I have gotten great response from the Big Girl Blogs out there, and TONS of support and love from the brides-to-be out there. I celebrate the Official One Year mark on January 15th!

We had a snow day! Tiny experienced her first snow…although it didn’t last long cause she started shaking so much.

YAY WINDOW CASINGS! It’s so much easier to heat our kitchen now! we’ve enjoyed being able to use it all year round!

Took TONS OF PICS of Tiny Winey!

Found a lost camera with even more pics of Tiny!

The tornado that came through Five Points.

The crazy-weird-not-sure-what-is-happening-to-us feeling we both had.

Feb 10

The return of Monday Fundays…although now we don’t really do them anymore. One of our friends that was always so enthusiastic about her Monday Margarita fix is now pregnant…so that puts a damper on drinking.

Went to Nashville and saw Smith Westerns, Girls, and Magic Kids!

vented about stolen cars, cancer, a bigger store, a new roof, etc.

Valentine’s Day! Complete with a mix tape of love songs!

The beginning ideas of a new store!

Our love affair for estate sales sky rocketed and we decided that will be the only way we shop! Lots of photos of our house and estate sale finds on this entry.

Vertical House Records wins first place! Although this year we’re a bit ticked off at Valley Planet…they totally removed the “best place to buy music” category to “make room” for the “best day spa” category…REALLY?! omg. Although you can totally vote for us in the “Best Adult Store” category!

Bath time with Tiny!


Fell in LOVE with this house, which is across the street from us. It sold at an auction for $45,500. Thankfully, no sign of them trying to tear it down yet. Maybe there is hope…maybe it will be restored!! It’s the ONLY style of house in all of Alabama..isn’t that nuts?!
