Tis the Season...

I love the Holiday season. Everything from Thanksgiving to Christmas and New Years Eve and all that is in-between.  The smells, the sounds, the chill in the air, the whole she-bang. 

This brings me to my next point and possibly one of my favorite things on the entire planet which is this...

Mariah Carey "All I Want For Christmas is You"

I don't care what you say. This song fills me with so much joy no matter how many times I listen to it, which has to be in the millions, no joke. From blaring it in my car on the way to high school, and turning it up as loud as possible in any college boyfriends house no matter the month it's my go to {even in July}.  If I ever get married I'd be surprised if it wasn't requested 59 times at my reception {which means my future husband has to be a Saint}.

This song will always be my favorite.  And so the season begins...

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope everyone is home with family, friends, and good food.  Today I am thankful for being home in Kansas, my sister coming all the way from Denver and my brother coming all the way from Washington DC. 

I am thankful for the women in my family.
 I am thankful for big news and everyone's health.  I am thankful for the smart ass way my family talks to each other, how much we laugh while we are together and the fact that they really made me who I am today. 

I am thankful for my brother and sisters.
I am also thankful to get to see old friends while home, friends I've gone to school with since 1st grade, and friends I made in college.  I am thankful for a birthday party on Saturday to celebrate my brothers 30th.

Thanksgiving 2010 watching the Wildcats play football against North Texas.
The only thing I'm not thankful for is the fact that we are missing my oldest sister who is back in Dallas with her family today, however I'm sure her day will be filled with family and fun as well!

What are you thankful for today??

Beats to Jam to :: Travel Edition

So, as I mentioned last night I am on the road this week in Louisiana, one of my favorite states for many reasons.  I have an issue though, I lost my iPod somewhere between New York, Vegas, or maybe Atlanta in the last few months? I have no clue where it ran away but I think it may officially be gone... so alas, I am left with the radio and CDs.  I think we all know the last time we bought a CD, just kidding, I have no clue? 

So you can imagine the CD case I still have is full of random college mixes and the radio is full of... well.... the radio. So I may know every Taylor Swift {no... we are never getting back together...}, One Direction {I just really wish you knew you were beautiful...}, and Beiber {wait do I secretly love this song?} and probably many more embarrassing songs by the time I get back to Dallas Thursday night. Anyway, I really wish I had these songs on my iPod for driving through the bayou's and French Quarter.

It's random but all songs I love to blast over my car speakers when I take these beloved trips to Louisiana.  Maybe next time... anyone want to buy me a new iPod?

Travel :: Louisiana

I am in Louisiana tonight after a 5am wake up call and really long day!  I will be in Baton Rouge and New Orleans {2 of my FAVORITE places on earth} all day tomorrow. After Louisiana I will be in Mississippi for about 5 hours {maybe less} before heading back to Dallas late Thursday night. I am already exhausted so I'm not sure how I'm going to do it and cram in some picture taking between appointments but I'm going to try.

Is it too early to go to bed?

A.Moet :: Luxe Lounging

I like to imagine when I'm lounging around my apartment I'm wearing the finest silk slip and the prettiest patterned silk robe. You know, drinking water out of a champagne glass, dipping strawberries in chocolate.  The truth? I'm in Target black sweat pants, a Hanes white t-shirt, drinking water out of a Cotton Bowl 2012 plastic cup, and eating a pumpkin muffin while smearing cream cheese frosting on it with a knife, you know so some gets on every bite. Whoops... TMI? Probably.  Wouldn't it be nice though to lounge around and get ready in something silky and beautiful?  That's why I have started my Christmas list.  

The line is called A.Moet and it's inspired by redefining the everyday robe.  They wanted to update it and make it even more beautiful {think smoking jackets} but even more functional.  The purple color which is called Feira is my personal favorite, although I'd take any.  I especially love the pictures on her website.  The women are all doing things we all do everyday {drinking coffee, getting the mail..etc} but they look a million times more glam, and free then I do in my sweats. Not to mention the fact that they have pockets! I mean seriously, put a pocket on something and instantly every female likes it that much more.


Add some bangles and it literally looks like a wrap dress. I would wear this look to brunch any day...

Oh look! They did that too. In their gorg outdoor space with mimosa's of course.

It's the perfect mix between boho, free spirit, hippie but in a completely glam way.  Not to mention how do I get my hair to look like everyone of theirs? Off subject... but "like" them on Facebook, follow them on Pinterest, and keep up with them on Twitter.  I have a feeling this is going to be a line that will grow and evolve into something even more amazing than it already is...
