Being home in the Mississippi Delta always gives me that “warm and fuzzy” feeling inside.  I can visit with my family, see old friends, and eat good cooking.  My mom always prepared a feast whenever I came home to visit, but now that she is no longer here, I think I’ve found...

Leave a Legacy

A couple of weeks ago, I chartered a yacht and cruised down the Tennessee River with some amazing women who always inspire me to be the best.  I know it has been a while since I sat at this computer and wrote a blog, but I’ve been doing some soul-searching, and this relaxing time on the...

Live Life

A couple of weeks ago, I felt a large mass in my breast.  I had just checked my breasts in the shower on Sunday.  On Tuesday, I had a throbbing sensation near the lower part of my breast that I knew was not there before. I immediately called my doctor.  All of this happened during a time when...

Act Like A Lady Dec02

Act Like A Lady

I was in New Orleans this weekend. It was 75 degrees, and I was feeling girly, so I wore a skirt.  This was supposed to be a fun fashion blog, but it has suddenly turned into my podium. My favorite second line music is “Do Whatcha’ Wanna” by Rebirth Brass Band from New...

The Eaves Restaurant

I think I’m in love with The Eaves Restaurant in Huntsville.  I went on a fun lunch date with some wonderful women I met during my time here in Huntsville.  Sometimes, you have to put work, kids, and everyone else aside and just spend time with the girls.  That’s what we decided...

Commerce Kitchen

I love lunch dates, and this lunch date was special because I spent it with a sweet lady from the Mississippi Delta. She grew up about 45 miles from where I was born and raised.  She graduated from Alabama A & M University and went on to medical school.  She is now a local pediatrician. I...

Moving to a new city can be hard on a woman.  It’s pitiful that the first thing out of my mouth when I found out we were moving was, “Are you serious?  I have to leave my hair stylist!  Who will do my hair?”  Since I have a big mouth, I talk to everybody and instantly...

Nyla Rose Mar09

Nyla Rose

The past few months have been one big adventure. The hubster and I welcomed Miss Nyla Rose on January 21, 2015 at 2:38 p.m.  She was 8 lbs. 9 oz. and 18 1/2 inches. We named our bundle of joy Nyla Rose because Nyla means “Champion” or “Winner” and Rose is her...

Poppy Kitchen

I heard about this restaurant a couple of months ago.  This restaurant has been open less than a year, and it is a wonderful place to get a warm bowl of gumbo…good gumbo, I might add.  It’s located at the LaPaloma Resort off of  Sunrise.   Website: www.poppykitchentucson.com\ We...

I have a friend who is a Yelper and loves trying new restaurants.  She sent me a text with three restaurants to choose from, and I chose Ignite Lounge and Bar at the Ritz-Carlton.  I always eat at CORE whenever we are at the Ritz, but I wanted to try this restaurant, which is more of a lobby...

Tea Time Oct06

Tea Time

Last November, I uploaded a photo of this little hat onto my fan page, and some people asked me to wear it in a post. I know it’s almost a year later, but here it is. This is an outfit I actually wore to a tea.  I found this hat at Forever 21.  It is quite “busy”, which I...
