80’s Prom relived in 2010!

This weekend we were invited to an 80’s Prom themed- 40th birthday party. What a fun night! Getting dressed in outfits that we pillaged from our closets was just half the fun. Todd and I were rolling in laughter at each other as we each pulled out bad outfit after accessory!  His being his white “creeper” style shoes (that he […]

Merry Christmas Everyone! I’m spending the holiday in Alabama with my family. Aunts, cousins, mom, sister– we are a houseful of women, NO men… so to pass the time we are eating and cooking. I stumbled upon this simple, easy and delicious recipe and wanted to share. But be careful you will eat all of them faster than they cook. […]

Stocking Stuffer or Gift Idea

Stocking Stuffer or Gift Idea

About a year ago as I pulled out my winter wardrobe, I realized most of my nice sweaters had pilled. You know when they start to get a ton of fuzzy’s and you can’t get rid of them. This seems to happen on other articles of clothing as well with rayon in the fabric. I’ve found a solution and it’s […]

Birthday Fun

Last week we celebrated my 30- ish bday at our house, the theme was Pizza+Beer+Cupcakes. It was so fun seeing old friends and getting caught up. I spent almost 2 entire days cooking cupcakes from Martha Stewart’s cupcake book. Everyone showed up bearing wine, champagne, or a gift even though the invite specifically stated NO GIFTS. So to all of […]

Church in Paris

Church in Paris

Today is exactly one week that I’ve been in Paris. We walked to the 6th district and visited 4 amazing churches. By amazing I mean absolutely draw dropping, take your breath away, stop in your tracks type of architecture and design. It left me wondering how humans could possible build these structures thousands of years ago. I took so many […]

DAY 1 Plane, trains and automobiles… I arrived in Paris! The only casualty was a bag missing at baggage claim upon arrival. To my benefit this worked out well as the bag (the larger of the two pieces of my luggage) was delivered to the flat the next day (benefiting me by not having to lug it around the city). […]

My family and I would like to thank everyone for all the support, love, help, sympathy and Hospice donations over the last few weeks. It’s never enjoyable or fun to see someone you love become ill or sick but with the help we received and the love we have for our father, son, brother and ex husband, our family has […]
