MIA St. Patrick’s Day Style

Yes, I know my poor blog needs some TLC. I have been out of town and then I just haven’t gotten a chance to get on and post. Since, as we all know…post take a while. Quite a while.

So, to catch you up…I will add my post (after this) of my absolutely fabulous March BIRCHBOX. It is by far the best one I’ve received thus far!

Now, for those of you who know me know that I love HOLIDAY’s!

All of them.

I love to decorate and celebrate–

With that being said, of course I had to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this past weekend and there is no better place to celebrate than Savannah, GA!

How BEAUTIFUL is this picture from the parade?

My dear sweet lovie came into town and we got to celebrate with friends all weekend long. It was very much needed for both he and I. Of course, who doesn’t need some good celebrating with friends time? I think we all do! Maybe you could add a few, yes, I said FEW bev’s in there..and it will make it even better!

To make a short story as short as possible….Justin (the lovie) had to move 10 hours away for work. I have been up to visit him, but he has not been here since I have gotten Jen’s…So, this was their first chance to meet. She was very scared at first (and may still be), but she started warming up to him. Possibly because it was forced. He fell in love with her–I mean how could you not?

Do you see them cuddling in the top middle picture? Ahhh…Go ahead. I know you want to say it too. Ahhhh.

Jen’s also loves Holiday’s. And the clothes that go along with them–

Now that I’ve got you a BIT caught up…I am no longer MIA. I am back!

However, right now I must go take a bath with my dear Vino, and then watch a movie.

ps…I’m already anxious to go back and have Oysters! Lauryn Pumpkin get to packing! newsig

The Bachelor : Finale

Wow…What a season.

I got to look stare at Sean.

Did I say stare?

Whoops. Is that the wine talking?

Wait, not whoops

It’s truthful.

Sean is beautiful. (Yes, Justin, you are MORE Beautiful, but we already know that. Duh.)

But, of course, it didn’t hurt having to watch Sean’s beautiful-self every Monday night with my bifflet.
For those of you who do not watch The Bachelor. Shame on you. 
I will let you know that tonight was the finale. Sean had to choose between two great girls.

Lindsay OR Catherine

I have like Lindsay all season, however she hasn’t always been my favorite. Maybe because I fell in love with Sarah? Who knows. But, I did feel a bit of chemistry between Sean and Lindsay. I’m not completely sure if it was partially due to all of the kissing, or perhaps the romantic dates they shared. I just think they both enjoyed each other. Lindsay fell head-over-heels in love with Sean and he didn’t seem to feel differently until the very last date. (I beg to differ, because I think he knew before then, but that is information we will never know.) Lindsay is young and in love. She wanted to find her prince charming and get married. Who doesn’t want to do that, right? I know she must be completely devastated, but I was so proud of her for what she said back to Sean after he told her she wasn’t the one he wanted to spend the rest of his life with.

She was more mature than I have seen her the whole entire season.

Quite a few weeks ago, I told Lauryn Pumpkin that I just knew it would be Catherine. Something about she and Sean was unlike he and any of the other girls. You could tell there was a spark. Maybe something weird between them that we didn’t’ all seem to understand? We will never know. But, I do know that they were giddy. They had fun together and it showed. She fell in love with him and I could see in his eyes that the feeling was mutual.

This absolutely sold the deal. 
Catherine is as equally sweet as Sean. This note was the perfect topping to one of the most beautiful proposals.
Personally, I think Catherine and Sean will be a great match. They are in love and it shows in every way possible. 
Sean is the sweetest man and it goes to prove that Catherine is a very, very lucky girl. Not many men would tear up on national television while watching his proposal. How sweet. 
Now, I’m looking forward to watching the wedding–

{We shall take a little time and re-cap this precious couple}

Just before the BIG moment….Can you even begin to imagine how nervous she was?!

Were you happy with the outcome? 
ps…I love Sean’s family. How cute are they? And his dad….What a sweet, sweet, sweet dad!

Lush : Relaxation

When I went to study abroad in Italy some years ago, I learned about this fabulous store called LUSH.

I immediately fell in love and wanted to buy one of everything the store offered.

However, I couldn’t do so, which meant I must pick my most FAVORITE’s to take with me.

First, I went with a massage bar. Ahhhh. Heaven.

Then I decided to get these unbelievably awesome ‘bath foam’ balls. These things are absolutely wonderful!

So, my dear sweet bifflet, Lauryn Pumpkin got me a box full of bath foam balls for Christmas!

{I break these foam balls apart and put little parts of them in my bath each night}

Ahh….Can’t get much better with a bath and a glass of wine!

Hope you all have enjoyed your day! Tomorrow I can’t wait to share my Part 2 Foot Detox– [Prepare Yourself]
