M is for Monogram


I hope that you had a good weekend.  Did you see the eclipse? It got very dark here.  At the sky's darkest point,  the Mister celebrated the big moment by running out to pick up his dry cleaning.


The struggle is real, folks.

We had a nice lunch on Saturday. We love a restaurant in Dallas called Rise, and they opened another one in Plano. The restaurant is famous for its souflees. The food was delish, and the service was exemplary. 

Can't you tell the Mister is crazy about me? 

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know that I have a fondness for monograms. Recently, I was in search of a gift for a graduate. Since she wasn't graduating until May, I had some extra time to look, so I went the Monogram route.

So if you are looking for a special gift for a graduate, a Mom, a birthday girl, or better yet, yourself, this post is for you.


I bought this for a sweet friend last year.

So cute!

My #1 has this in camel.
It fits so much stuff!

For the student headed abroad.

These bags are at a great price point.
I've used them as a gift bag, so the lucky receiver gets two gifts in one.

For the grad who will be spending some time at the beach.

Cool cooler!

I am going to order this for moi.
I love a forgiving shirt.

Great teacher gift.
Throw a twenty in the gift bag if your kid's a challenge. 

Cut-offs not included.

One of my pickle buds has one of these and loves it.

I love my new bag.
Sparkle has so many cute styles and would make a great gift for a college girl or deserving Mom.

This is a great gift for the friend who does not allow any family members to use the guest towels.
There's always one kid who never listens.

A new take on the monogram pendant.

I notice that Hoda and Savanah wear a lot of these chains.
And yes, I do listen to the news too.
I'm not just there for the wardrobe.

Great gift for the daughter who thinks a thank you note is a text.

Did you know that Williams Sonoma has monogrammed plates?
You heard it here first, folks.
