School Days

I’m currently lusting after these beautiful shoes right now.

They remind me of grade school. Because when I was running around the playground these were the type of shoes we wore. I’m pretty sure the price tag wasn’t as hefty (Rag and Bone version is $495, Yikes!). I just love the no laces look on this pair so if you guys know of any similar  without the hefty price tag send me the link. For now I will keep dreaming about winning the lotto so I can buy these shoes.


How I almost ruined a marriage on accident…

So a little back story on me, I live in a home owned by a couple of friends who live in another state and only come back to Louisiana for big events (think Holidays, weddings and LSU football). Anyway, this couple made it home last weekend because the big event of choice was the Baton Rouge St. Patrick’s Day parade. (it’s kind of a big deal in these parts and we live two blocks away from the center of it all). 

Flashback: Thursday night I was getting ready for a friends going away party when I realized I had a piece of underwear in my nightstand that didn’t belong to me. I thought “Oh my laundry must have gotten mixed up with A’s the last time she was in town I will just throw it in her suitcase.” (Wouldn’t you think the same?) Well, I didn’t mention anything to A because I thought she would just recognize them and think nothing of finding them in her bag.

 

Present Day: I received a phone call this morning from A asking me if I thought M was cheating on her. Ummm, NO! What in the world!!!!? It’s only 6:45 in the morning! Was I awake enough for a question like that? Hmmmm, Probably not. Well, A proceeds to tell me why she thinks M is cheating on her. She tells me she found someones panties in her suitcase. In my head I am going, “OH SHIT, This is totally my fault!” So I have to stop her mid sentence to tell her what happened. Boy did I feel bad making A and M think something was going on. I am sure it was hard for them both to sleep last night. But I do have to say I wish I had been a fly on the wall when A held up the panties and asked M where they came from. I am sure his face was priceless! Anyway, that is my how I accidentally almost broke up a marriage. These things only happen to me. Pretty sure I should write a book.

Tonight I feel …

Tonight I feel like my whole body is made out of memories. I’m a mix-tape, a cassette that’s been rewound so many times you can hear the fingerprints smudged on the tape.

Southern Girls…

Southern Girls

A Southern Girl is a girl who knows full and well that she can open a door for herself but prefers for the gentleman to do it because it demonstrates a sense of respect. We know how to make sweet tea and grits while telling you about any football team in the SEC. We pick our battles and fight with the heart of a pit bull while still maintaining grace and elegance. Our Mystique is that of a soft-spoken, mild-mannered southern bell who could direct an army, loves her momma and will always be daddy’s little girl

Books

One of my favorite things to do is curl up with a good book. I’ll often stay up all night to finish a book if I am really into it. Sometimes you just need to know what happened! If you have any good suggestions send them my way. I am always looking for a good book. Maybe it is my need to be entertained.

I read this quote the other day and just had to share it. It really states how I feel about books.

I read all of those books I always wanted to read, or reread… And I feel full. Until I finish a book. Then I feel a certain desperation to start a new one. To have company. ~Jill Davis


If You Forget Me

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats
that sail
toward those isles of yours that wait for me.

Well, now,
if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you little by little.

If suddenly
you forget me
do not look for me,
for I shall already have forgotten you.

If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners
that passes through my life,
and you decide
to leave me at the shore
of the heart where I have roots,
remember
that on that day,
at that hour,
I shall lift my arms
and my roots will set off
to seek another land.

But
if each day,
each hour,
you feel that you are destined for me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower
climbs up to your lips to seek me,
ah my love, ah my own,
in me all that fire is repeated,
in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live it will be in your arms
without leaving mine.

Pablo Neruda


It’s Beginning to look like a Better Than Ezra Mardi Gras!

I’m so excited! It’s Mardi Gras time around here and with Mardi Gras for me comes a Better Than Ezra concert. So fun! I haven’t been able to see them in NOLA during Mardi Gras these past few years so seeing them this year is going to be great!
A friend of mine will be celebrating her birthday and she wanted to see BTE. I can’t wait to share pictures and stories with you guys.
