Stocking Stuffers Under $25 Bucks


I hope that you had a productive week.  

I can pretty much say that I have finished my shopping.  

For myself, that is. 

This is my last post of 2023. The next couple of weeks will be filled with reading, catching some new movies, and keeping up with our favorite shows.

Faherty & Me/ Take 2


A few weeks ago, Faherty got in touch with me and proposed another partnership.  I couldn't be happier - it is one of my favorite brands. If you recall, I partnered with Faherty in April.  I lived out my supermodel dreams donning darling dresses.

As a matter of fact, those dresses are already packed in my suitcase for a January getaway.

A Holiday House Tour


I hope that you had a good week.  Mine was busy but productive.
The weather has been a bit nippy, but we had lots of sunshine.

The Mister's Gift Guide for Men


Did you have a good weekend?  If you noticed, I was MIA last week.  I was in Rosemary Beach visiting my Sista.

We had a great time catching up.  It was a bit nippy, but we managed to have some delicious meals and burned off the calories while doing some retail therapy.

A Millennial Gift Guide

I hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  We had a fun one.  The Adorables, my favorite son-in-law's delightful family, joined us.  They also brought an honored guest, Aunt Mermie, from Canada.
Here are a few snapshots of our Thanksgiving.

Our security was on high alert.

The Friday Files


How was your week?  Mine was fairly quiet.  The Mister was out of town, so Millie and I were in full command.  We left dishes in the sink until evening and then stacked the dishwasher willy-nilly.

I know you are grinding your teeth right now, Mister!

I hope that this post finds you well.  

The Mister and I had a very productive weekend.

My Favorite Reader, Paige

I hope that you had a good week.
  Ours was very quiet.  I am officially done with Covid! Today, I am venturing out of the house after being in quarantine for ten days.

The Mister and I have a busy day ahead.  I need to do a lot of returning of things after all of my impulse buys while feeling sorry for myself.  The Mister loves seeing me return things.  He's not so hot on seeing me walk out of the store with a bigger bag than I brought in, though.

My Primary Bedroom Refresh


Hope all is well in your world.  Covid still has me by the tail, but I am gaining strength.

Do you know what gives me strength?  Partnering with my favorite bedding/bath brand, Boll and Branch.  As you may recall, I partnered with B&B last year.  I heard from so many of you that you were over-the-top pleased with all of your purchases.

Prime Time

I hope that this post finds you well.  It seems like everyone, including the Mister and me, is under the weather.

Did you have a good Halloween?  Ours was quiet; we usually don't get any trick-or-treaters.  You would never know it from our pantry, though.  Our Director of Purchasing brought home 3 huge bags of candy just to be on the safe side.  I noticed that one of the bags had been opened and broken into.

My Latest Favorite Things


A couple of months ago, Nécessaire contacted me and asked me to partner with them to launch their new Hand Ritual.  Between you and me, I would have said yes to anything that Nécessaire asked because I love their skincare line.

I hope that you had a good week.  Mine was less than exciting -I took care of personal monthly maintenance, which entails roots, highlights, and nails.

The Mister has a sinus infection, so I have been camping out in our guest room.  He is a perpetual snorer.  When he has a cold, he sounds like he is revving up a motorcycle. I kid you not.

Supermodel Trophy Wife Camp


I hope this finds you well.  I am exhausted.  I was at my Supermodel Trophy Wife camp, and it really took a lot out of me.

Reading, Watching, and Listening


I hope you had a great weekend.  

We had a small dinner party for dear friends. 

We had cocktails and crostinis on the patio.

Did you have a good week?  Mine was a bit on the busy side.  I got my yearly mammogram and then sweated it out for 24 hours until I received the email with good news.  I don't know about you, but a mammogram can cause my anxiety meter to go from 1 to 100.

Sweatah Weathah


Did you have a good weekend?  Our weather was picture-perfect.  We relaxed on Saturday, and on Sunday, our #2, her friend, and Lemmie came for lunch.  Our #1 and AJ couldn't make it because they were moving into their new home.

The Mister outdid himself.

Prime Time Take 2


  I hope that this week went as quickly for you as it did for me.  I brought my neighbor to pickleball, and even though she only played a couple of times, she did great!  I also had lunch al fresco with a dear friend and looking forward to another one today.

Prime Time Take 1

I hope you all had a great weekend.  I took this photo on our walk yesterday morning.  Would you or have you ever taken a ride in a hot air balloon?  No surprise that I have never taken one.  I even get sweaty palms looking at them.

I hope that you had a good week. We checked a few things off our list.  We got our 13th Covid Booster, or maybe it just felt that way.  We also got our flu shot - a higher dose this time.  I don't know why; I'm just assuming that they give the eye candy a little extra because we bring beauty to the world. 

I got in a few games of pickleball this week.  I think my fellow picklers are on to me.  When I make my customary bad calls, they shake their heads and roll their eyes in unison.  

It's not a good look, girls.

Fall Decor You Can't Ignore


Did you have a good weekend?  We spent Sunday celebrating our #2's thirtieth birthday at Georgie's, which was lovely.  Unfortunately, the birthday girl did not allow photos. 
Don't shoot the messenger.

It's lucky that I'm not sensitive.
