herewith is the pictorial story of our fall trip to Round Top...

always in a southern state of mind

what is it?

I felt compelled to post again about
my favorite kitchen gadget...


Looking at the picture you may be wondering
what is it?
btw...random useless trivia here...
anyone else remember that the mascot of the '96 Atlanta Olympics
was first named "whatizit?" then got shortened to just "izzy"?
I think that was the only time
 I've ever been embarrassed to be from Georgia.
What were they thinking?
Anywho...back to my original thought process...

favorite things for five bucks

You can't buy much these days for five bucks.
But I found a new to me product
and that got me to thinking...
what are some five dollar favorites?
Well...I found five....

daring greatly

I hope this isn't the case
but beware that this is yet another Brene Brown post.
Yep.
She did it again.
Made me want to shout her praises again.
Because just last week I emailed my peep Holly
about my favorite quote from Brene's "Daring Greatly" book.
{It's actually a quote by Theodore Roosevelt
but Brene made me love it.}
I emailed Holly to see if she knew where I could get
a "pretty" version of the quote because you know
I'm a sucker for cool fonts and quote boxes.
Holly is such a doll.
She said if we can't find one, we could make our own.
I know.
She's my tribe and as talented as the day is long.

the skin I'm in...still the one{s}

By now you know I'm a self-professed beauty product junkie.
If that is wrong I don't want to be right.
A dear friend of mine knows how I roll in this department
and recently asked what new stuff I was using.
I'm pretty sure I surprised her and myself
when I said not much.
I've kind of gotten into what I think is a pretty good routine.
My skin is really behaving since I cut out wheat.
{Although I admit with my kids birthday,
then my own earlier this week
I fell off the wheat wagon and indulged in 
some heavy carb loading...
nearly bordering on gluttonous inhalation
of buttery bread and birthday cake
like both were going out of style.
But its back on the saddle again,
which both sucks and is good for me at the same time.}
If only I could get gravity to cooperate 
and stop pulling parts of me down
I'd be all good. Ha!
Since I can't fight gravity
I try to fight wrinkles with a few things...

boho bedding

I'm happy, no, make that ecstatic
that it really and truly feels like fall here.
Finally!
Leaves are even falling off the trees.
{Although that could be the record heat too. Ha!}
October is absolutely my favorite month of the year.
Truly if we could keep it like this all year I would.
Not sure if that has anything to do with the fact
that since I turned 30 {mumbling} years ago
I celebrate the entire month of October
not just my birthday.
If that's wrong I don't want to be right. Ha!
BTW...a very happy belated birthday to Mary Ann.
October babies rock ;)
Whether its your birthday or not
I hope this month is treating you well so far.

Somehow, well, I know how but its a truly long story,
one I'm sure I'll write about here soon,
somehow I started updating a couple of rooms in our home.
Three bathrooms.
That turned into three baths and a couple of bedrooms.
Because that's the way my brain works.
Domino decisions y'all.
No pretty before and afters...yet.
Stay tuned for that.
But I thought I'd share some cool boho bedding I've found
in case you're looking to do some updating yourself.

It started with this print...
