Savannah’s Rosemary Sip

Growing up in the South, I have learned that there are very few things comparable to a nice cold beverage on a warm day. Perhaps, there is nothing better than walking out into your garden and finding fresh ingredients to use in your own homemade ‘sip’. 
{My mom and I sipped on these while watching the Kentucky Derby.}

CLOSED : Reader Giveaway : Essie Nail Polish & Quick Dry

CONGRATULATIONS : ASHLEY ATKINSON–

{I will contact you about sending you your new Essie Spring Polish and Good to Go!}

Thank you all for joining in on my giveaway! I plan to have many more in the future!

EssieGiveaway
For all of you new and old followers, I am so very thankful! I am so humbled that this blog has grown the way it has. When I first started blogging, I was in college and it was a requirement for a class, so naturally–it wasn’t my most favorite thing. However, when I started this blog just a few short months ago, it has become sort’ve a passion for me. Something that can be my outlet to the world outside of my ‘little bubble’.
In the beginning I decided once I reached 5,000 views, I would have a giveaway. Yes, I know 5,000 is not a lot in blog land. But, hey–I’m new and I am ever so grateful for all 5,000! You must start somewhere, right?!
Since I love, love, LOVE nail polish I knew that would be the perfect giveaway.

Of course, I would love to keep this polish for myself, but I want one of you to enjoy it just as I would! This is the perfect polish for Spring Time-

2 Girls in Cowboy Boots

boots

There is something about being Southern and owning a pair of Cowboy boots.

They go hand-in-hand.

Perhaps It’s because a lot (NOT all) of folks in the South listen to County music.

Lauryn Pumpkin and I (as well as the rest of my family) are going to see Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean & Jake Owen tonight @ Sanford Stadium.

Ekkk. I am beyond excited.

To say the least—

I hope you all enjoy a nice cold bev, listen to some Country music or whatever you perfer, and have a fantastic weekend!
