We're Moving!

On the Interwebz you doofus.  Since Goldman Sachs banned profanity in their e-mails we decided scrub it from our blog address too. Don't worry, you'll still get all the same NSFW rants, gratutous posts about what Meredith and I are cooking, as well as some very unflattering photos of our friends to boot.

So update your fucking links and point your browser to http://matt-mer.blogspot.com/ (RSS too) & visit the all new Matt & Mer's 100% Natural Good Time Family Blog Solution

The Betrothed

Two showers in 6 days...I'm on a roll! Enjoy the photos from my sister-in-law Megan's Bridal Shower!

Adventures in Pickling

We recently made some homemade pickles for my friend Laura as part of her Bridal Shower gift.

I think she liked them!

Bachelorette Parties and Showers and BRIDES...OH MY!

I love a celebration that lasts all weekend! This weekend was Laura's Bachelorette Party AND Bridal Shower! THE BRIDE hopes you enjoy the photos :)

Hummm, this vase looks familiar! It looks just like the one Laura gave ME! LOL!

Happy 4th! (on the 3rd)

Thank You For Being A Friend

WTKA is quite saddened by the sudden death of our favorite "flirty" Golden Girl, Rue McClanahan. You will be missed! Here are some Blanche-isms for you to enjoy (get yourself a slice of cheesecake first).

"He is so sophisticated and charming and rich and handsome. He fairly screams Blanche. At least, he will when I'M through with him."

"There is a fine line between having a good time and being a wanton slut. I know. My toe has been on that line."

"I swear with God as my witness, I will never pick up another man!... in a library... on a Saturday... unless he's cute... and drives a nice car... Amen"

"Oh please, it's bad enough hearing all those snickers as you walk down the aisle, but me in white, even I couldn't keep a straight face."

Blanche: What was your first impression of me?
Rose: thought you wore too much makeup and were a slut. I was wrong. You don't wear too much makeup.

Blanche: You know what I hate doing most after a party?
Rose: Trying to find your underwear in the big pile?

and my personal favorite...

Sophia to Blanche: Buckle up slut puppy, it's gonna be a bumpy ride!

Matt and I just returned from a fantastic long weekend in Chicago visiting Laura & Carl! We may have forced them to drop everything and watch the LOST finale (after never really watching the show), soooo we hope we get invited back soon :)

Follow Laura & Carl on Twitter!

mmm CAKE!

It's called wedding practice! Enjoy all the photos from Megan and Derek's SURPRISE Engagement Party this weekend!

Happy 29th Matt!

Happy almost 30 :) Hope you have a great day!

Twins with Quinn?

Last night on Glee, Quinn wore a shirt that I have from Anthropologie. I was really excited at first, but then realized that she is supposed to be pregnant on the show...ugg.

M&M's Adventures in Cooking!


Spinach Pies!

Bread & Goat Cheese Dip!

Enjoy all of our Athey Nuptial photos!

Sue Sylvester, Dance on Air

Gawker put together a comparison of Sue Sylvester's "Vogue" from this week's Glee with the original. Shot for shot it is on the money.

The future Mrs Sweitzer!! (in 4 days...)

The New Garden

Last Sunday we spent the day digging a new garden in our front yard! If we get one eggplant, I'll be happy :)

Preppy Pantaloons

So Apparently there's going to be a Sequel to the Preppy Handbook published later this year. I doubt it'll live up to the greatness of the original 1980 version, but, unsurprisingly I own the same embroidered pirate pants Chip Kidd, the co-author, has in this NYT photo. I wear them better if I do say so myself.

Matt & Marty - dance off

Say it isn't so!
