Celebrity Look Alikes

Okay...So many folks have been doing the celebrity look alikes...No offense, Dame Judi, but what do you think? I guess comparing the pictures there may be a similarity.


Have you tried these? Just wish they had fewer calories. I guess that goes with anything good!

From an e-mail today...

One morning you will never wake up. Do all your friends know you love them? I was thinking...I could die today, tomorrow or next week, and I wondered if I had any wounds needing to be healed, friendships that needed rekindling or three words needing to be said. Let every one of your friends know you love them. Even if you think they don't love you back,you would be amazed at what those three little words and a smile can do. And just in case GOD calls me home before I see you again....... I LOVE YA!!! Live today to the fullest because tomorrow is not promised..

Beautiful Spring Day! is eighty degrees! Love it!
Also love this fragrance. When we were at The Cloister in October, these were the amenities in our room. I am assuming they carry it at their spa also. I found a lotion from there(yes, I bring home the unopened bottles) yesterday and it brought back wonderful memories. Available at Nordstrom.

Preppy? Not!

My husband and son do not own a pair of blue jeans...they are very conservative and preppy, but...they are NASCAR fans. Yes, my physician husband loves to watch cars go round and round a racetrack! This weekend, they are going to Bristol with several friends. Me, I'll be happy playing with my other two children, sewing or curling up with a good book!

In the mail...

Happy Birthday, Mom~ Sending this her way..I posted picture before but this is the finished product with outfit and truffles inside!

Today's Preppy Birthday Gift

Monogrammed for a friend for today's birthday. As if it didn't have enough ribbons already, I tied a couple to the zipper...No more monogramming racquets covers as they are boogers to get into.

Preppy Gifts

My friend wanted a baby gift so I monogrammed this diaper stacker and filled with newborn diapers...the burp cloth will be tied on the side with the ribbon and the bib placed inside! TADA!

March Madness

How many of you are as busy as I "feel" like I am? Getting things ready for a Silent Auction for my son's school. Here is one item I am sure you can relate to....

I wore my hair thingy today

I won't post my whole outfit, but I did wear green pants, white tee and black sweater tied around shoulders w/ cute black belt from Silpada. Speaking of which, have many of you heard of Silpada jewelry and what is your opinion? I would love to know what you think.....

Birthday Present

Harry has a little birthday party today so I grabbed one of these bags and put her name on it. She can use for Easter of in a bathroom filled with washcloths..(or toilet paper rolls) This bag is from Creative Containers.

The Dalton Girls

Since we commute to Catersville Ga to participate in competition cheerleading, we took a picture of the four from here and their coach Dan! He's great! Mine is on the far left!

Caroline's team placed first in their Youth Small Level 3 Division. We had a great time with Mickey Mouse. Returned home today and went straight to son's baseball game. They won too! So glad to be home with my boys but had a ball with my daughter.

Anyone else a Shopaholic fan?

Although I am not a big shopper, I love this cute series. Anxious for this one. I either read very deep and serious books or fun Brit ones like this.
