What we got for Easter!

 I love Easter! The holiday always falls close to my Birthday, spring is in the air, and my Easter bunny is the greatest. Even though I should have outgrown Easter baskets by now, we’ve kept the family tradition going strong. Chris and I make a basket for my parents and they put something fun together […]

How I organize and embrace my t-shirt obsession

I love T-shirts. It’s kind of an obsession. I see t-shirts as little pieces of your life scrapbook that you get to wear! Our collection is extensive. Chris and I share a t-shirt tower that is stuffed to capacity. We’ve got everything from high-school shirts, to frat party shirts, to t-shirts from our favorite Sushi […]

Healthy Snack Ideas (you’ve never heard before)

I’ve read dozens of “healthy-snack-idea” lists. Look up “healthy snacks” on Pinterest, and they’re all over the place. Most of these indexes include the same things you had in your lunchbox in first grade, like: aunts-on-a-log, peanut butter and apples, sting cheese, hard boiled eggs…  etc…etc… yawn… Over the years I’ve enjoyed 3 delicious snacks […]

Old-Timey Love Inspiration!

Happy February- my favorite month! It’s the month of LOVE and also our anniversary month! Instead of sharing pictures of pink hearts and candy, I decided today would be the perfect time to post some love inspiration from yesteryear. My Dad and Uncle recently opened up and old suitcase that belonged to my Grandmother’s sister, […]

Frame your favorite beach towel!

My cousin gave me an adorable beach towel for my Birthday! It’s a 1970’s replication of a New Yorker magazine cover with illustrated dogs all over it. I’m OBSESSED! She found it on HauteLook.com.  (check out HauteLook…. they have super cute stuff!) I was so in love with the towel that I immediately thought that is would […]

Adventures in Unclaimed Baggage!

A few weeks ago I complimented a coworker’s new iPad. He gloated that he bought it at Unclaimed Baggage in Scottsboro, Ala. I was shocked! I had no idea that Unclaimed Baggage sold iPad’s! What?! After my coworker told me more about the gem mine of sales and fun just down the road from our […]

The Cartwheel App!

Have you downloaded the FREE Cartwheel App from Target? Do it right now. It’s so worth it… Clip the items that you plan to buy…. and the app creates a custom barcode that you scan at checkout! The app is very user friendly! It’s also fun. The more you use the app the more badges […]

Happy Halloween!

Love, The Lalo’s! (La- low) Here is a cute little Sugar Skull too: ♥

Winnie’s Best Day Ever!

Winnie recently went to the Monte Sano State Park Dog Fair. And we are pretty sure it was Winnie’s Best Day Ever! First, she got to on a car ride. That is always a HUGE treat. Here is the fair map. Fun around every corner… Winnie won a prize because we picked up her poop! […]

Crooked brows or crooked glasses?

It’s a question that haunts me on a daily basis… …pretty sure it’s my brows. One has always been more arched and a little higher. I just always look intrigued? Because I have naturally blonde brows (it’s a redhead thing), I have to use a little powder to make them show up. If you are […]

Our Tuesday Tradition!

Happy Two Punch Tuesday! Chris and I have a fun new tradition. Every Tuesday for the past few months we’ve been taking advantage of “Two Punch Tuesday” at our local Sweet CeCe’s! That means we get two punches on our loyalty card for each yogurt we buy. DINNER! Chris always gets gummy-worms on top (ew!), […]

My quest for Bubble Tea!

I was a student at Ole Miss when I had my first Bubble Tea. There was a tiny Asian restaurant near our house that served the whimsical and colorful drinks. I had forgotten about Bubble Tea until I stumbled across a crop of pictures on Instagram. After a little googling… I finally found two places […]

Attempted a photoshoot with my dog the other day….

First, Winnie tried to get away from me. Look at the way she is looking at me… and she was totally leaning away. Try 2: Looking in opposite directions… Try 3: Eyes closed…. Try 4: Both looking the wrong way… We never got a good picture. But at least we tried!

Small ways to help overnight guest feel extra special

Over the years I’ve picked up a few hosting tips from close friends and relatives. Even though our house isn’t exactly perfect (I sometimes wish I had the means and time to iron 1,000 thread count sheets and sprinkle fresh orchids around the house), there are some simple details that can make a big impact […]

Every Girl knows how to spell Chanel!

Every time I see Chanel #5 perfume…. or anything with that familiar CC logo, I have a flashback to a funny family memory.  A few years ago I was in Atlanta visiting my aunt and uncle.. probably for Thanksgiving.  My uncle is obsessed with eBay and asked me to look up Chanel purses for his […]

I’m a purebred Ginger that LOVES sunscreen

I’m a purebred Ginger. My Dad has had BRIGHT ORANGE red hair and my Mom had strawberry blonde hair (now it’s a beautiful bright white). Both my parents have fair skin and freckles. I had NO hope. I’ve always been pale and freckled. It’s just how I am. I’ve grown to love my coloring…. but […]

Nashville Food Finds….

Last weekend we went to Nashville for a wedding. Discovered lots of new favorite foods / fun places to eat! The Bride and Groom had the cutest rehearsal dinner-party. They rented Nashville’s best food-trucks for the evening. Chris and I had a blast trying out the local food-truck cuisine!         The Grilled Cheeserie […]

Turn your favorite Cookbook into Kitchen Decore!

I’ll admit it. I judge books by their covers. Especially cookbooks! I bought the cookbook Ripe mostly because I LOVED the pictures. Each page features a beautiful fruit or vegetable… And it’s color coordinated in ROYGBIV order! The only problem with a book that is filled with beautiful pictures.. is that you have to open […]
