Back into the swing of things...

Sorry loyal readers for the lack of posts these past 20 days. I have been going through a bit of a quarter life crisis… but hopefully this is a start of a new me!

As for the past 2 weeks, I have had a lot of exciting things happen!

First of all, for Easter, my mom (aka: The Easter Bunny) got tickets for the whole fam to see WICKED up in Birmingham, and although I was unable to attend Bunko-it was well worth it! Wicked tells the story of the Wicked Witch of the West (from The Wizard of Oz of course) and Glinda the Good Witch. Turns out-once upon a time-they were besties! Anywho, I won’t give anymore away, you will have to go see it for yourself…

The singing-AMAZING.

I would have loved to see this on Broadway, but this hit pretty close to home! They even had 95% of the original Broadway set! I highly recommend this to anyone who LOVE theater and The Wizard of Oz!


I am at work one day and check my personal email to find a note from a nice lady asking me to be a part of an art show in Calera, AL on June 6th!!! Turns out-she saw my ETSY shop and liked what she saw! WHAAAHOOOOO! I sent in the application and will hear back from her around May 16th .
Now I need to get my little butt in gear and make some stuff to actually SELL at the art show (saying as I HOPEFULLY will get in…)

Missing in Action...

OMG. I have been MIA for the past 2 weeks! I have been super-busy with weddings, work and life...

Since my last post I have:

1. Hitched a ride to Destin, FL with some of my besties for a fun filled wedding weekend. (It rained the ENTIRE time we were there-but, by God's good wishes, the sun came out about 3 hours before the outside wedding took place-It was beautiful.

2. Contemplated going back to school to become a petroleum engineer.

3. Welcomed my sister back from her 2 week trip across France (she brought me back some cool stuff-will show in a later post)

4. Spent too much money on clothes...but in my defense, they are all good "basic" pieces that will last me a long time. Oh-and they were all on sale-hence why I felt the need to buy A LOT.

I swear, I am getting back into the swing of things. I am hoping to "pre-blog" in the future and have them post automatically so that all of my 5 readers will have something fresh and fun to read everyday!

Peace out. Players.

Yes, please.

I am going to try this little pretty on at lunch. This is my kinda dress! Nice solid color and modern shape just waiting to be accessorized for the perfect occasion. Oh, did I mention it is UNDER 50 BUCKS?!!!!! Yup, she is on sale at 30% off and she will soon be safe and sound in my closet. Just think, some rockin' heels for a wedding or night out on the town OR throw on some gold gladiator sandals for a backyard wedding shower!

Oh, the possibilities...

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

The Northeast
The Inland North
The West
North Central">What American accent do you have?">Quiz Created on GoToQuiz

Something is not right. If only this quiz "grader" could hear some old home movies of me... You might not hear the old southern drawl that my grandmother has but you sure would know I was born and raised in the South. And. Damn. Proud. Of. It.

Now, if yall would excuse me, I'm fixin to drank some sweet tea on the front porch and gossip about the latest scandal to hit town...because, bless her heart, if sweet Lilly-Ann did not catch the bouquet at her cousin Margaret's wedding last Saturday. Lawd-her Momma is fit to be tied!

I wish I was in Ireland...

Home of my kinsmen! Seriously, how beautiful is that. Maybe I should just pack up and move there.

Here is to wishing you a Happy Saint Patrick's Day to all of my fellow lads and lassies. Please enjoy this beautiful day and have a couple of Guinness's for ol' St. Patty! He did rid Ireland of the snakes ya ken?

I leave you now with one of my favourite Irish Blessings:

May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind always be at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

and rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Shop Makeover

 TA -DA!!!!!!

Well what do you think?! 

I have been staring at the old banner all weekend thinking "Something is not right..." With the help of two very honest critics (thanks Mom and Dad!!!) I have finally settled on the above. I love it. It makes me so happy!

The little guy under the banner is my new avatar! 

If you have visited the shop lately, you will see that it is under construction. Stay tuned for new , more fabulous than the last products!!!

Au revoir la Soeur ! (Goodbye Sister!)

Image found here . (Check out her shop!)

My little sister is off to France! She is leaving tonight for Spring Break and a magazine shoot for school. Imagine-boarding a plane, going to sleep and waking up in Paris! What a lucky gal! She has created a blog so that we (her friends and family) can keep track of all that she is doing while oversees... check it out too if you would like here.

Maybe she will fall in love with a handsome French photographer, marry him, move to Paris and take me with her. ***sigh***
