a bar in the middle of ...

I just came back from a wonderful vacation in Jamaica.  A week of laying on a beach drinking lots of frosty beverages is just what the doctor ordered. One of the highlights of our trip was a catamaran cruise to Floyd’s Pelican Bar that sits about 3/4 mile off shore in the middle of...

my favorite breakfast t...

I am absolutely in love my new breakfast discovery, so I must share!   These are so easy to make – and while you are at it make a whole dozen to last for a few days.  They easily heat up in the microwave (just wrap in a paper towel for about 50 seconds). Breakfast Egg Cups Canadian...

I had the pleasure of visiting Austin, Texas about a week ago.  What a great town! Some friends of ours were getting married and we decided to make a long weekend of it.  We stayed at the historic Driskill Hotel right in the heart of downtown.  What a beautiful place, and over 100 years...

watch hunger stop

I was recently having lunch with my friend and fellow designer, Kelsey.  We were eating lunch and I couldn’t help but notice her watch!   I love the size and the bright teal color.  She told me about the watch and I began to like it even more.  This is the Watch Hunger Stop...

never grow up

7 weeks ago, my 83 year old grandfather (Papaw) had a FULL knee replacement.  If you have met this man, you know that this did not keep him down! He has more life and energy than most people half his age.  He spends his time playing golf with friends, going to the YMCA to do his...

I have this system with my hair.  I like to grow it out really long and then chop it off to a really short bob.  I like the drastic change.  Well, this time I waited 3 and 1/2 years between big cuts and I was able to get it long enough to donate!   I snapped some before, after and...

The Mister and I have recently moved into a new house.  Well, let me take that back, we moved back into his home just outside of the city limits. Remember Bella, she is SO much happier in the new home with a yard and easy neighborhood to walk around.  It makes my heart happy to see her...

mountain getaway

This past weekend I had a quick getaway to the mountains with my family.  We rented a cabin near Brevard, NC - the land of waterfalls…and home of white squirrels!  No, I’m not kidding.  They even have a White Squirrel Festival every year! The cabin we rented was actually in...

With my wedding less than two months away, we are in full DIY mode!  Last week my friend, mom and I got together to do a little spray painting! My style is very mix match.  If you walk in my house, I do not have a lot of things that are not thrifted… remember my post about...
