Good In-Three-Short-Weeks-It-Will-Be-Christmas-Eve Monday Morning! I know, that might be too much to handle on a Monday morning, but…there it is! Well, the house is all decorated for Christmas…just in time for the painters, carpenters and drywall guys to come this morning to repair the damage from the Hurricane back in September.  I should’ve known that […]

The kids have all the trick or treat candy to look forward to this Halloween. but unless you are a big fan of Dum Dums and Milky Ways, you are kinda out of luck. UNLESS…you’ve got some fun little Halloween beverages up your witchy sleeve! I think you will happily let the kiddos indulge in […]

Well, my friends… This has been quite a week. I didn’t get Monday Musings written last week as we were in full-on Hurricane prep mode. And this Monday, I am doing my musings in a hotel room in Charlotte, 200 miles from our water-logged and hurricane-ravaged hometown of Wilmington. We took my parents, their dog […]

Fall Container Garden and Front Porch Ideas using Grocery Store Produce, Vegetables and Herbs I do love a front porch.

If you’ve been reading the blog lately, you surely are not surprised that I’m here today with some of my blogging girlfriends for our second annual Fall Open House. I’ve been dropping hints all over the place (ahem, Spiked Warm Apple Cider…Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars)… I’ve realized that I filling our home with the flavors and aromas of fall […]

12 Beautiful Fall Wreaths, just in time to help you start planning. I had to stop and check my calendar when I popped into Michael’s this week…I thought perhaps, unknown to me, it was actually mid-October and I had just woken up from a bout of amnesia…having slept through all of August and September. If […]

What foods say ‘summer’ to you? Watermelon surely is on that list, in addition to ice cream and hamburgers…right? And while thanks to the science of preserving dill pickles are eaten year-round, making refrigerator dill pickles is surely a summer thing given the fresh cucumbers that are hanging from the vines in our gardens. Are […]

Looking for the very best Margarita recipe? Look no further, my friend! When we head out to a restaurant, I am typically a ‘white wine please’ gal. That being said, our favorite Mexican restaurants are the ones whose Margarita recipes have passed THE test. Suffice it to say that our favorite Mexican restaurants are those […]

Hello my friends and I’m so glad you’re here today because I have something special planned! (Did I just sound a bit like Mr. Rogers there?)  But, it’s true! I attended Haven, a DIY/Creative Blog Conference last month and not only did I learn a great deal, but I met 7 other incredibly talented ladies […]

Hello to all my falling-leaves loving, pumpkin-spice craving, football-watching and all-around Fall Fanatic friends out there. I don’t love one season over another, but every 3 months or so, I’m ready for the current one to leave and the new one to come on in. It’s in my current ‘ready for fall’ mode that I […]
