They seriously for a moment change my life! I just watched Julie and Julia and it make me realize that I've neglected my blog. It also make me realize that I too love to eat.

Another notable movie that changed my life.....The Notebook.

What are some of your favorite movies. You know, the ones that for those few moments after wards you truly feel that so many things are possible!? Or is that just me, I do realize I am a HUGE dork!

Happy Saturday!

My acceptance speech

I always like imagine the acceptance speech I would make if I ever won a big award, like an Oscar, or possibly a blog award!

(Shocked face).....there are honestly no words to describe how I feel right now! I want to thank the Academy, or Jamie at Jamie Unscripted and Jennifer at Dave and Jennifer Holland, for everything! I couldn't have done it without your support and being two of the five people who read my blog regularly. I feel like I owe a lot to my roots and where I grew up (Mena shout out)!

(Que tears) You have no idea how this award will change my life, how much it means to me. It makes all the hard work, blogging, seem worth it! So thank you, thank you for thinking of me. Thank you for the Sunshine Award! As all things good in life, you should pass them on......and so I will.

So thank you (drum roll, please)

1. Lauren at Under Construction - for always providing wisdom AND laughter.
2. Beautiful sister at Don't Sweat the Small Stuff - well basically thanks for being my sister, but also for posting pictures regularly of the most handsome baby in the WORLD. They always bring a smile to my face!
3. Ana at Knock Off Wood - your amazing and awesome!
4. The Pilot's Wife - L.o.v.e her blog!
5. Janie at How I got out of $26,000 of debt - you're hard work is inspiring.
6. Rachel at Rachel Sloan Photography - I love your love for furbabies.

Ok it was supposed to be 12, but hey I made it halfway. Thanks for the award Jamie and Jennifer!

What brings you joy lately? For me it's that this weekend is Daylight Savings. Massive amounts of sunshine here I come!

Bad Habits

We all have them. I have a plethora! And one of them is not spell checking my emails! This should be a big no, no. I mean they even made it easy and gave you a spell check button! Oh I use it, but once I see all is clear I usually throw it in drive and race down the road to the next venture.

But guess what? If you tell someone you would like an imagine or two to use for an announcement, they may or may not know what you are talking about. Image that? (HA, get it?) That magic button may catch grammatical errors and misspelled words, but it doesn't catch nonsense! And apparently I'm full of nonsense. Lesson learned........REREAD your stinking emails Jonnie!

I love this kid!

No, really, I do. I show his picture to everyone I meet! He's the apple of my eye, even from hundreds of miles away! I can't wait to squeeze his sweet cheeks and then kiss 'em!

Yup, this lady is amazing! I can't wait to try and build something of my very own! And I already know just the thing! That's a secret......at least until I get start!

No need to thank me. ;)

I'm seeing stars....

I think I told you guys that I had an awesome first Mardi Gras experience, but I think I forgot to mention.............................I met CHRIS PAUL!

Now some of you (Jamie and Rachel) might be asking who in the world is Chris Paul? For shame. Well he is an amazing, talented athlete and the point guard for the New Orleans Hornet's! I'm not gonna lie, I was WAY starstruck. Enjoy.

Yet another reason why I love this city!

I am inspired by this story. I know most of you might have already seen this, but man, how amazing.

I think I moved to paradise

Saints parade and Mardi Gras.....

I love this city, who knew?

I live in the South people

Yup, I sure do. I live in the South where we drink sweet tea daily, wave at people we don't know, we talk about ya ma and them, we call our grandparents Grandad and Nanny, and have mosquitoes in January!
Man.........I love the South! There is nowhere else I'd rather be.

You call these directions?

I am by no means a fashionista, or anything close to one. So I am reaching out to my fashion knowledgeable friends. Please don't laugh.

One of the things I used to like about clothes is that you always know how to tend to them, take care of them, keep them CLEAN! Dry clean only, hand wash and line dry, tumble dry low, machine wash warm, use cool iron if necessary. The combination is endless.

So imagine my surprise when I read this: Machine wash cold with like colors, line dry in cool place. For best results dry clean.


I feel like if the tag could talk it would say "sure go ahead and try washing your brand new (what I consider nice) pants and line drying them, but when you ruin them you'll realize you should have just dry cleaned them!"

So what do I do....do I attempt to wash them or do I just surrender them to the dry cleaners?

Long time no see

Sorry about that! I hope to make a somewhat regular appearance in the near future. Anyways....I wanted to show you my first EVER blog prize. Yes, I, indeed win a blog giveaway. And it smelled so nice.

No, it really did.


And I'm pretty sure when this one is gone I will have to order another from dear, sweet Aunt Sadie! In a different scent of course. Thanks Cara, LTHL is the best, and so are you!
