Seafood Casserole, Comfort Food Take Two

Happy Friday!  Its been quite a week and I'm feeling the need for fall to finally hit.  I'm such a summer girl that I've been reluctant but now I'm all about the sweaters and some crisp weather.  Not to mention some great fall grub!  Last week when I made the Chicken Enchilada's from the Real Simple issue that featured the great food swap, I also tried another featured recipe, Seafood Casserole.  Doesn't the word casserole just make you think of old southern church ladies lining up their strange jello salads covered in saran wrap?  Well...

My Fashion Week Tampa Bay Show Experience

As you know, last week I attended the Fashion Week Tampa Bay show here in, well, Tampa. HAHA! My mama, my girlfriend Annelis and I got all dolled up and headed downtown for a fun, fashion filled evening. Since, I had my press  hat on I didn't get to sit with my ladies, but I did make friends with a very interesting fella decked out in head to toe African garb. I could kick myself for not getting a photo of him. He looked awesome! Not only did I get to sit next to...

Wedding Wednesday: Peach and Navy Palette

Have you entered our $100 LuLu's shopping spree giveaway yet? As I said last week, despite having gotten hitched over three years ago, I still just really LOVE weddings. I visit some of favorite wedding blogs nearly daily and I could happily pour over other brides' wedding photos for hours. Tell me I'm not alone in this. The colors of my own affair were turquoise and black as you can see evidence of with my lovely bridesmaids' black frocks and turquoise drop earrings and the hubs' tie. I still big puffy heart this color combination, but I fall...

Pale is the New Black: Wearing Soft Tones this Fall

Tomorrow is the last day to enter our Charm Design zipper pouch giveaway! Happy Monday lovelies! I hope everyone had a beautiful weekend. I'm sure it ended all too fast as mine did.

Happily, I am well rested, thanks to my darling hubs who got up with the dude Saturday AND Sunday, so Monday being right up in my face isn't bumming me out as much as it typically does. Plus,...

Chicken Enchiladas, A Recipe Large Enough To Keep The Good Times Coming

Last month’s Real Simple featured an article on the concept of dinner swaps.  The idea is that you and one or more of your friends and neighbors each make a dinner, but enough of it to feed as many families that participate in the swap.  If you had three participating it would be three lasagnas, etc.  The thought is that it takes very little time to create more of the same dinner, and that you would then only be cooking once instead of three separate nights.  The other two nights you can pop the received...

For my dream vow renewal, I’m seeing shades of yellow and grey!

Have you entered this morning's adorable zipper pouch giveaway? So, I'm an old married lady now, but that doesn't stop me from drooling WAY too often over weddings. I'm determined to convince the hubs that a vow renewal is a fabulous idea. I'm of the firm belief that a girl should get to wear a wedding gown more than once! I don't think that a second wedding is too much to ask for. Do you? HA! The first time around I had a traditional affair that was held in a beautiful ballroom. The next time around it...

A Giveaway that Will Help You Get Organized Beautifully

Hi, my name is Kristin and I have a secret. My bag is, more often than not, pitifully disorganized. I swear, when the dude was an infant, that diaper bag of mine was meticulouslypacked. I had every single little baby doodad that you can imagine separated and tucked into its own little bag or pocket. Fast forward to two years later and you'll find Hot Wheel cars mixed in with goldfish crackers mixed in with a random lipstick or two and if, I'm lucky, my wallet and phone. I might be alone in this, but...
