Lovely Day

I woke up this morning with the song, "Lovely Day," in my head.  The weather was beautiful and I was feeling great. I actually found a pair of pre-pregnancy minnie pants in my closet that I can still wear!  I could not believe it.  Now that I am buying clothes that...

It’s Just One of Those Days

Have you ever had one of those days where you just want to stay home and watch a movie or read a book?  Saturday was one of those days, but when my husband said we were trying out a new restaurant, I threw on something and was ready to ride.  There is a new restaurant...

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...

I love weddings --- the beautiful flowers, the happy bride and groom, the good food and the warm atmosphere.  My wedding was wonderful. I would not change a thing about it. The reason I really enjoyed my wedding was because I did what I wanted to do.  I did not allow...

Folsom, Louisiana

I'm a country girl, so I want my children to experience the country.  If you have a child who was born and raised in the city, I think it is always a great idea to let them experience the beauty and the serenity that only the country can offer.  While visiting family,...

The Past

I've been here in the past.  A couple of  years ago, I stood in front of this same door, but I was a different person. Many people spend their lives looking back, pondering over the mistakes they made and wondering what they could have done differently.  This is a new...

Will You Marry Me?

Before sharing my wedding day photos on my blog, I thought I would start with my engagement.  I know there probably aren't many men out there who are tuning into this blog right now, but for those who are, let me tell you that if you are preparing to ask the woman of...

Rebecca Minkoff

I have been searching diligently for a bold, red bag.  Well, after much searching, I found one.  It's the Rebecca Minkoff Nikki Hobo bag and I love it.  It is so roomy and has lots of interior pockets.  This is a much needed feature with a little one on the way.  I...
