It's just pretty fab!

Many a collage was made from those same pages; in fact… Continue Reading What I Wore: Tour of Good Housekeeping with Jambu
Saturday evening was a baseball game with my mom and sister. My mom is a big baseball fanatic and loves nothing more than going to a game and screaming at the players. My sister and I enjoy the family time, the beer and the outdoors. We have grown to enjoy baseball more over the years… Continue Reading This Weekend
As I mentioned in this blog post, I think a cotton shirtdress is one of the best things for summer. They dry fast, they don’t cling, and they can make you look and feel polished even with sweat running down your legs. When perusing the New Arrivals from Chico’s I found this pink cotton shirtdress… Continue Reading Pink Cotton Shirtdress from Chico’s Black Label
