Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta

I'm so excited because Say Yes to the Dress is coming to the south!!!

I know, I've been married for almost nine years, but I still love anything that has to do with weddings! I love watching Say Yes to the Dress, but always get annoyed when they make the viewer feel sorry for the girl that couldn't afford the $8,000 wedding gown and had to settle for the $6,000 one.

It will be interesting to see if the new Say Yes to the Dress in Atlanta, which starts in July, will have a southern flair to it. It will certainly be interesting to see the southern girls that I'm sure will appear on the show. Dear TLC, please don't pick all dumb blonde girls with the hickest southern accents to feature on your show cause there's more to us southern women than that.

What's even more cool about this new show is it is the same bridal salon that my BFF bought her dress from about two years ago! It's called Bridals by Lori and if you're shopping for a dress, you can click here to sign up to try to get on the show! She was married in Atlanta in her brother's backyard, overlooking the pool, and I actually directed the wedding. Her dress was GORGEOUS and she said they won't let you take pictures of the dresses there until you actually commit to buy. I think Kleinfields is the same way.

  1. Oh how fun and exciting! I love that show as I was in the bridal biz for 4 years, and could totally relate to all the DRAMA! It'll be nice to see a "southern" version....like you said, hopefully they make some intelligent selections ;-)

    Beautiful pic of you and your BFF!! XO

  2. I bought my dress there, too, in 2001 before they moved to their bigger store! I live in Tennessee and had to make 5 different trips for fittings, etc. It was an Anne Barge dress and she came to one of the fittings because it was all done by hand. It was lovely to meet her! Can't wait to see them on TLC! How exciting!

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …
