fresh bathrooms

well I dont have any before pics...I mean I know I do but Im too lazy to look on old archived discs for them. But over the past 2 weekends, we put some new paint on the walls in 2 of the bathrooms. Changed from color to nice grays. I love them.

MASTER BATH: The master isnt quite done - we need a new light fixture (searched high and low and cant find we we like yet!) and I need to put 2 black and white pictures of the kiddos in the frames....but we painted it 2 different grays to give the room depth since its large and replaced the big 1 mirror with these cool 2 circles. We FINALLY got to the put up this cool candle "circuit" that Justin and Debi got us off from crate and barrel wedding registry. We were just waiting on the perfect place :) I still need to repaint the "toilet room" but its a muddish color so doesnt look to bad with this for now.

1ST FLOOR BATH: Its hard to tell in these pictures but its a nice cool gray on the walls. We had a bright reddish-orange so 100% different. We had the branch in our master but since we added the new wedding wall art, we put it in here. My brother Chris actually made it - it rocks.

The countdown is on till Kim & Garys wedding! We flew to AZ last weekend for a quick visit. Saturday was Kims bridal shower. her MOH and mom did a great job setting it all up. It was at Kokopelli Winery in old Chandler. The weather was amazing! Lots of wine & good food. Here are a few shots.

Kims colors are Tiffany Blue and Orange (for his Syracuse U)

I wish the lady took a better pic of us...wheres margaux?
I wonder who made her that? BTW its a New England Pats shirt (thats for Gary :)

Danny golfed that morning and went to Ryan & Colleens so I met him there. They were having a cookout with friends and watching the Cardinals game - bummer they lost.

Then I went to Brians to meet Aiden and Jace! They are my friends from my old softball teams new additions! the left is Jace (frank & tanya's) and the right is Aiden (brian & kristi's). They are sooo cute together!! Just months apart!
Monday afternoon we flew back and by the power of facebook, my cousins and us reunited! Turns out danny checked his facebook and Jessica's status was "3 hour layover in PHX" - get out!!!! She was even in terminal B. Erica (her sister) even had a layover too so we all had a beer! Erica had the stomach flu though. Oh and danny "bitch slapped" our waitress on accident. Crazy.

Famous Corrigans

Ahhh and we are pubished again - but this time we are nationwide and in Canada :) I could get used to this.

So for Bath and Body Works spring 2010 collection, we emphased DIY and personalization. I worked on these giftsets that are keepsake boxes with a chalkboard finish (to write messages on) and a picture frame cutout. I also designed recordable picture frames ect. Anyhoo, I thought it would be fun to include my coworkers kids in the marketing! well, we needed a couple for our Valentines Day its Danny and I! So funny. I couldnt find any pictures that 1. werent us getting married and 2. where we didnt have a beer in our hand! But finally, i found one.

If you click the images you can see us a little better (these shots are taken off the BBW website). BUT they are in stores so next time you are at Bath and Body, take a look at the giftset :)

Dane & Courtney's Reception

Last night we had a wedding reception for our moms friends son (old family friends). Dane & Courtney got married in June at a court house so this was a late celebration for family and friends. It was at an old wine cellar that was turned into a restaurant and banquet hall.

PS I think im going to wear this dress to your bridal shower Kim, too cute to wear 1 time :)

Well hello over there...

Moms date Dick came
Mom of the groom and Patty (too bad this flash was bright!)

Danny was so cute, no one was on the dance floor so he said "ok lets just get this over with" and we went out to get the party started!

Mom and Chris cut a lot of rug
Then "Sherman-Twin Dance OFF!"

Today parker played in the snow. Ok mainly ate it.

Ringing In 2010

Hello 2010! We rung it in with our awesome friends and lots of fun. I accidentally deleted ALL my pre-bar pics....someone (mark) decided to take a picture of their junk and I didnt want to see it soooo I pressed some buttons not looking and POOF gone :( i was sooooo sad.

Anyhoo, we started off at Gina and Collins in German Village. The boys grilled us ladies steaks while the girls played Super Mario Bros. Then we played Jenga (drinking game style).

We walked to Club 185 and I swear, we were the most fun group there! It got packed closer to midnight with people wearing hats but we were definately the 1st. I rocked my new xmas shades that danny got me all night. I got some looks but whatever!

Club 185
Andrea has the best hair (eventhough this picture doesnt do it justice).

Back to Gina and Collins aftre the bar (my champange toast at the bar was champange in a can with a straw - luckily we were prepared with 4 bottles back home)We look like sisters....awwwww
Dance Time!
Parker was loving that bottle

We tried to recreate "the lift" from dirty dancing....not successful
Danny made it fall this time.
