So our old barbecue grill finally gave out after 15 years of grilling! I loved that grill but, it was definitely time to get a new one. After looking around at different models, we decided to go with the Weber Spirit. We got it at Lowe’s with free assembly and delivery so we were happy campers! After the grill was delivered, I could not wait to fire it up and try this Shrimp Boil and Foil Packets recipe I saw on Facebook! Continue reading

Let’s Flamingle! This was the theme for my flamingo themed pool party that I hosted to raise money for a great charity, promote my wine tasting business, and just have fun! Take a look at my video to see how to throw a fabulous flamingo pool party!
When I saw this dress, I immediately thought about Hawaii! I have never been there but, this tropical print seems like the beautiful flowers and easy breezy feel you would enjoy when you are there. I am so excited because my husband and I have planned our first trip there for our 25th wedding anniversary and our 50th birthdays! So I am starting to collect a few pieces for the trip.

Color and Denim-Work it Wednesday!
I love this denim strapless dress and I crossed my fingers that I would be able to squeeze into it this summer, lol! I brought it on clearance back in January at White House Black Market with visions of wearing it on a warm summer night or to brunch with the girls. With the help of a good strapless bra and Spanx I am in…whoo hoo! Continue reading
This week I pulled out my super bright Kate Spade handbag and my orange and white stripe top for a casual spring look! I think stripes and brights work well together when you are ready for some fun in the sun! The weather is so nice that it makes me want to head outdoors and just enjoy the cool breeze.

I love finding a great pair of shoes! When I am shopping for shoes, I look for the three C’s: they have to be cute, comfortable, and cost effective. Luckily, these black strappy heels with terrific tassels fit the bill! I found them at Madewell a few months ago on sale for $40.00. They were on clearance in late January which is a great time to shop! Continue reading
My husband really likes blueberries and I enjoy baking! However, I don’t always have time to bake from scratch. So when I have a taste for fresh baked muffins, I like to make my quick and easy semi-homemade blueberry muffins. Continue reading
My daughter loves the movie, Devil Wears Prada! So when I told her that I was going to feature this floral dress for my next spring post she said, “Florals, for spring…groundbreaking.” We both laughed because I kinda remembered Meryl Streep saying this with a very unimpressed look at one of her staff meetings. She was very hard to impress, LOL! However, even though florals for spring are not new, they are classic and often a great choice for spring! Continue reading
