Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving Dahlings!  I am headed to my grandparents or the plantation as I sometimes call it.  It will be loud (think 50 peeps) with lots of laughter, catching up and talking over each other.  I love the holiday season so much!  It's so full of love, happiness and of course delish food!  I cannot wait to sample everything my mom, aunties and grandmother have made.  Depending on the weather we will end up outside either playing corn hole or perhaps practicing some skeet shooting, we are in the South of course, hunting is as important down here as breathing!  Take time today to reflect on all you are thankful for!  I am so thankful for my friends and family, especially my parents who encourage me and continue to give me wonderful opportunities to succeed in life.

A Cayman Island Adventure

Mama Jill and I had the BEST time in the Cayman Islands!  We left last Tuesday and came back (sadly) Sunday night.  To say we soaked up the sun and relaxed is an under statement.  I read SIX books, how ahmazing is that?!?!  The Cayman Islands treated us perfectly, we saw nothing but friendly faces, beautiful blue skies and aqua water and who can leave out the fun cocktails, Cayman Lemonade and Painkiller were our faves.  Mom and I had the time of our lives in our Lilly Pulitzer bathing suits, perfectly southern monogrammed hats and of course tons of sunscreen, our new obsession is Sun Bum.  We are the perfect travel companions, laid back, perfectly content to split a bottle of red wine and a delicious meal, we were living the dream the entire week.  We both had two spa treatments, a massage and an energizing body scrub, where you are legit naked on a table and they scrub you down and then blast water all over you.  They then wrap you in some tingly seaweed concoction and you have the best facial and scalp massage of you life.  Then you are once again blasted with water from all sorts of shower heads and massaged with body lotion.....I think that was both of our favorite treatments.  One of our favorite waitresses continued to call Mom, "My Lady" so don't be surprised if she starts demanding everyone to call her by that......or her highness will always do!  Thank you Marmie for the most fabulous and definitely needed trip away!  Loves you!!!

A Grand Adventure

Today, Mama Jill and I are peacing out on vacation to the Cayman Islands.  I've decided to pretty much  cut myself off from all things media related including my blog.  I need the time to re-charge and get back to the basics, aka reading lots of books and drinking chilled cocktails with umbrellas!  I look forward to sharing pictures from our adventures when I get back.  I hope everyone has a great week and is getting excited for Thanksgiving, the holidays are fast approaching!!

Sweet Sweet Friday

Happy mother truckin weekend-I don't know about y'all, but this has been the week from you know where!  The stress level at work is going into overload and all my other activities I'm involved in are going crazy too.  I have never been more pumped for a weekend, since it means I'm that much closer to peacing out with Mama Jill to the Cayman Island's next Tuesday.  I hope y'all have a sparkly weekend, enjoy Kings of Leon's, "Beautiful War."  This is one of my fave songs from their new album!!!

Twine and Twig

My new favorite discovery is Twine and Twig Jewelry, I recently bought myself two pieces and even Mama Jill is now sporting an awesome tribal inspired necklace.  Founded by two sisters in Charlotte, their line is unique, authentic and so chic.  Anyone can pull off the look, Mama Jill has layered her necklace with all her C. Wonder brightness and I love wearing mine with what I consider my boho look, jeans, boots and a chunky sweater.  You should definitely check out their website, facebook page and instagram.  They make truly one of a kind awesome jewelry!

Love Every Minute....

As most of you know, I started November off declaring it the month of me, so far it's sticking.  The word No hasn't gotten any easier for me to say and there is still that stab of guilt, but with Mama Jill's encouragement, the word is getting easier to say.  I stayed in Charlotte last weekend and had a productive, blissful weekend.  A group of friends and I went out Saturday night and I actually won a game of pool, shocking Sarah Roberts I know! Let's just say Sunday was spent recovering from all the excitement of me winning my pool game.  Between the guy dressed in camo who we dubbed Camo Jesus, the Biker, Hoodie Dude and the was quite the interesting night, we went out of our comfort zone and visited a bar that smelled like fried funnel cakes.  These are the random nights and moments that solidify friendships and make for fun stories.  I am grabbing every moment and living it to the fullest, everyone should stop, put down the iphone and just take in the moment, you never know what you might be missing.  Have a great week and thank you so much for reading!

Happy Friday!

I hope everyone enjoys their weekend!  I am excited to be staying in town and hanging out with friends and finally switching my closets, cold weather has officially hit the South and it is time to bring out all the warmer clothes!!  This is always a bit daunting of a task, but has to be done with some fabulous music playing in the background.  Here are the Killers with, "Shot at the Night."

My weekend with a little butter bean...

My nephew M3 is probably one of the best well-behaved, easy babies around.  My mom and I stole him away for a weekend at the beach.  The weather was perfect and time spent with our butter bean or buttercup as Mimi calls him was excellent.  Although he doesn't take long naps, about 30 minutes is his max, he had no problem putting Big Pappy to sleep for his after golf nap!  For now, he has no say in the puppy dog shoes and elephant hats we make him wear, which is perfect for us, he's our little Southern fashion plate.  I hope everyone had a great weekend!
