Southern Love

Just some of the stuff I'm loving right now...



1. Adele
Sure, it started with Rolling in the Deep, but have you heard the whole album? Rarely do I find one that I can listen to in its entirety and actually love! My other fave tracks are Turning Tables, Set Fire to the Rain and He Won't Go.

2. Mac Nail Lacquer in Steamy
This was a random purchase at the mall. I was actually looking for concealer, but also needed a really good new polish. I asked the Mac lady if they had any and she pulled out a tray - I immediately fell in love with this color. It's a gorgeous pink, bright and cheery for Spring, and it goes on amazingly smooth!

3. Abstract Landscape Giclee Print - Etsy
I've ordered this for my gallery wall in the family room. The colors and beautiful background shade of teal make me smile. I pined this on Pinterest last night and people are repinning it like crazy. Isn't it gorgeous? I would love the original too!

4. Water for Elephants, The Movie
I absolutely adored this book, and love some RPattz too, so I'm hoping Mike and I can get away for a date night either this weekend or next week to see this! I'm obsessed with the music that plays in the promo and the amazing vintage look of the whole film. I'm just hoping it does the book justice - has anyone seen it yet? What did you think?

5. Lourdes Sánchez Whales Pillow Cover, West Elm
This came through on an e-blast from West Elm this week. My gauge on whether or not I really love something is if I keep coming back to it in my mind and this is definitely one of those that keep popping up in my head. I love everything about these pillows and need to figure out how to make them work in my house just so I have an excuse to buy them!

6. Pinterest
I mentioned earlier this week my new love of Pinterest, but just needed to say it again. It's become my favorite thing to do at night right before bed. I'll snuggle in with my iPad (romantic, I know) and pin a couple of cool things that inspire me. I could totally get lost on this site.

One of my most favorite things to do when reading other blogs is get inspiration and see what other people are into out there! What about you? What are you absolutely loving right now? Share you cool finds!

Blog Cards (The New Calling Card)

I came across this budding trend online and thought - what a great idea! I have people that occasionally ask for my blog address and wouldn't it be great to have a blog card with just my blog address on it to give to people? I guess you could say it's the new calling card. It can make your blogging duties feel much more ligit and even promote your blog if it's something you're trying to profit from.


moo.com has templates for mini cards that would be perfect for blog cards. Cathe at Just Something I Madeposted some great examples of blog cards she's used in the past to promote her blog -

Let me know if you need a design and I can put something together for you!

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'…
