About Me

My photo
Welcome to my blog. I'm a Mississippi country girl transplanted to Grapevine, TX. I have been blessed with a great husband, and my kiddos, Aleck and Ella. When I'm not eating bon bons on the couch, I am my kid's room mom, PTA member, Sunday School teacher, taxi driver, amateur photographer and personal chef. When I'm not doing those things, I'm running a small jewelry business, 2nd Amendment Jewelry (www.2ndamendmentjewelry.com), that I started with my twin sister, Glenda. It's a crazy and busy life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world. I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life!

What Not To Wear

Glenda flew into town last night.  She is driving back to Mississippi with me and the kids tomorrow and we will spend Spring Break in Mississippi and Alabama visiting family.

Glenda is always telling me I don’t have anything to wear and I need to go shopping.  Today’s mission was all about finding me a new wardrobe.  Did I tell you that I hate to shop? 

I had a list of places we were going to hit.  We started with Plato’s Closet, a consignment shop in Grapevine.  Why on earth have I not shopped at a consignment shop before?  We hit the mother load!  In two hours, I had 6 casual shirts, 6 dress blouses, 6 jackets, 6 pairs of shoes, 2 purses and a pair of capris, all for $200. 

It has truly been years since I shopped for myself and I didn’t even know what I might like.  I love the clothes, but would have never picked out most of the outfits without help.  Thanks, sis, for the What Not To Wear adventure.  I feel pretty, and you have great style!
