I found some FABULOUS finds last weekend at the beach! I though I would share a couple with you! Heath and I went to Destin for the day to go to the outlets and Destin Commons, an outdoor mall basically...with Bass Pro Shop for the guys!
I have looked at things from Forever 21 before online, we don't have a store around here. I 've been to one up north and liked a lot of their things! Well, DESTIN GOT ONE!! Of course I tried some things on and loved their jewelry! These are the following things I walked out with.

Braided Rope and Serpentine Necklace in Gold/Ivory

Lattice Knotted Dress in Fushia.
I did not get the white belt the model is wearing in the pic.

When I wore this dress to church Sunday, I wore my "Mirage" Sorrelli jewelry :)
Here's some new pretties added to the website that I wouldn't mind having :)

Have a FABULOUS day!

Hometown DONUTS!

There's nothing that I love more than southern small town charm! Many of you already know that about me. I love discovering the many wonderful hidden treasures small towns have to offer. The city of Ozark has a hidden treasure that I thought I would share with ya'll!

KC's Donuts and Dawgs in Downtown Ozark, Al

This donut shop reminds me of my childhood, that may be the very reason why I love it so much! When I was little (like preschool/elementary) there was a local donut shop that made the BEST donut holes. That business got sold and then closed. KC's Donuts and Dawgs makes donut holes that TASTE SO GOOD! They taste JUST like my "childhood" donut holes, if not better! I seriously could eat 3 dozen at a time! (most of the time I do!)
Not only does KC's have the normal original glazed donuts, but they also have PANCAKE BACON and MAPLE donuts. KC's even has Honey Buns that are made with 100% local Honey!!!
 Donuts and other specialty items such as Elephant Ears and Apple Fritters are baked fresh EVERYDAY at 4:00 am!! I think this is correct, forgive me if I'm wrong but KC's Donuts and Dawgs is open Monday-Friday 5 or 6am-2pm and Saturday 5 or 6am-10am.
 One thing I also love about KC's Donuts is that every month they donate 100% of tips to a local organization or cause! This month's tips go to VOCAL.
If your in the Ozark area this weekend, why not go to KC's Saturday morning and grab a dozen donuts to take home or bring the family to downtown Ozark and eat at the 50's style soda fountain! I plan on going again this Saturday morning for some donut holes :) If you stop by make sure to let them know Lindsay sent you!

Party Re-Cap!

Chloe had a FABULOUS birthday, I made sure to tell her that my blog friends wished her a Happy day! Momma mainly decoratedfor the party while I was at work and at a doctor's appointment. Around 5:30 Chloe's guests showed up! Heath was supposed to work Thursday night but was able to be off and SURPRISED me and showed up! My grandparents came and of course they brought Becca. Ms. Mary and Traci came too! Chloe's new friend Zoe tagged along too and looked so precious in her "party outfit"!

Here's some homemade announcements I sent out to family that live out of town. They are always asking me to send pics of Chloe!
Here's some pics of the decor :)
The banner blow was handmade by a lady in England, it has cupcakes on it! I bought it last summer during my visit there!

Here momma and I are with the BIRTHDAY GIRL!


 Ms. Mary made Chloe a SUPER cute halter dress (dont look at my face :)
.....and my Me-Maw made Chloe this awesome quilt with doggies on it! Me-Maw hand embroidered this! No sewing machine was used at ALL!!
Heath played with sweet Zoe most of the time, Chloe didn't mind sharing!

As you can tell, Chloe-Elizabeth had a fabulous 5th birthday! She now has plenty of new toys and 'Pupperoni' sticks to last her a few months!

O yes, Becca and Zoe also let with a PARTY FAVOR which consisted of decorated doggy treats from ForPetsSake Bakery and a squeaky toy!

**If you are in the Dothan or wiregrass area and have a pet that you just LOVE..then you can sign up for the pet birthday club at ForPet'sSake Pet Boutique and Bakery and they will send you an e-mail for a FREE toy and FREE personalized dog cookie!**

Vanilla Cranberry Can Cake

I just love Sandra Lee, don't you! I love her show and her magazines! Last week while watching Big Brother 13 Traci and Mrs. Mary decided to make Sandra Lee's Vanilla Cranberry Can Cake for dessert! You bake them in a cleaned out veggie or soup can and THEN decorate them! Here's our decorated cans!
Can you guess which one is mine?
Here's the recipe if you'd like to try it!


  • 2 (17 1/2-ounce) boxes blueberry muffin mix (recommended: Krusteaz)
  • 2 cups white cranberry juice
  • 2 (16-ounce) cans whole cranberries, drained and rinsed (recommended: Ocean Spray)
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded coconut, toasted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 egg


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray the inside of 5 (16-ounce) cranberry cans (or similar) with cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl, combine muffin mix, juice, cranberries (save the remaining contents from the other 3 cans for pancakes!), coconut, vanilla, cinnamon, and egg. Stir to combine. Divide batter among the prepared cans and place cans on a baking sheet. Bake in oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until tester comes out clean.

Charming Flats

Lindsay Phillips.

Ever heard of her? Maybe you've heard of switchflops or snapshoes? Well I just LOVE Lindsay Phillips snap-flats!
 I have two pair and wear them to work all the time! These are a tad expensive to me but WELL WORTH it! They are the most comfortable flats I have ever worn! The first pair my momma got me! They are the Pewter Ballet flats.

And....THIS pair I found last week for ONLY $24.99 at TJMAXX!! I was so excited to see them there and for that price! I have been searching high and low for a pair of leopard print flats and now I finally have a pair...and they are super comfy!
Have a FABULOUS day!

I'm back and New Pretties!

I know it's been awhile but I promise I'm back !! I am been a busy beaver once again! This past weekend Heath and I spent the weekend at Lake Eufaula with his family for their family reunion. Despite the many scattered thunderstorms that were in the area, we still managed to have a BLAST! Can you believe that I didn't take a SINGLE picture!!! I know, I'm awful! Guess that means I was having too much fun :)

I have bought some new pretties lately and figured I need to show ya'll before I forget! I went to Hissyfits weeks ago and bought this FABULOUS Sorrelli "Sweetheart" ring that I wear ALL the time!
I really NEED this necklace AND earrings to match :) really bad!

I love to wear the Sorrelli "Sweetheart" ring I bought with this Fall 2011 Judith March dress!

So, whatcha think? I have a hot pink cardigan that I wear with it and my new Gianni Bini wedges momma bought me a few posts back! I figured I could wear my carmel color cowgirl boots and carmel color leather jacket with this dress on a cool fall evening!

Thursday night I was so excited!! It was the Big Brother 13 premier! What better way to watch the season 13 premier than with a Big Brother party?! That is just what I did! Instead of game night, we had Big Brother night this week :)
The next few months are going to be so exciting finding out who wins HOH, Power of Veto's, and the overall $500,000 winner! We had some drinks and some yummy food! Nana(Ms.Mary) made chicken salad and we had slop (mexican caviar) and mini cheesecakes!

 Traci even made our own "houseguest keys" for the party!
Every week we will place our key in the person's (or dynamic duo's) card holder that we think might be put up on the block. So, we placed our keys in the dynamic duo's card that we thought RACHEL would put up on the block. I AM SO EXCITED they brought Jordan and Jeff back on the show!! I hope they stay for a long while, but Rachel gets on my NERVES and hopefully she won't try and backdoor them.
 Here I am placing my "tiny" houseguest key into a box of who I think will win in the end. At the end of the BB13 season we will count the keys of the person who wins and the person who guessed the winner of BB13 the most amount of times wins a GRAND fabulous prize!
Anyone else watch the BB13 premier? What are your thoughts??

Headland Visit

I recently was looking on my camera, and noticed that my Momma must have taken it to Headland when Kyle and Rebecca were in town. I was sad that I wasn't able to hang out with them this day. They went to the movies and to the O-SO-CUTE town of Headland for some sight-seeing and coffee at a local coffee shop there. I did meet them for lunch at Olive Garden during my lunch break though :) Anyways, they took my camera without asking and are getting payback because I decided to post them without them approving of them first :) At least we can tell by these pics they had a great time...and that Kyle apparently likes to get his picture taken. My cousin Darby was in town visiting with some of her friends, so it was nice they were able to see her for a bit!

Hopefully she just gave you a little laugh on this FRIDAY! YAY!! It's the weekend!! Have a great one!

4th Recap!

On July 4th, I spent the afternoon at my grandparents house! I just LOVE every moment that I get to spend with family!! Nothing makes this southern cinderella happier than being with the fam'! My uncle grilled some fantastic porkchops and hamburgers and my Me-Maw made a salad, HUGE baked potatoes, fried squash, and for dessert we had homemade vanilla ice cream! YUMMY! Look at those big ol' juicy chops'!
After we ate our lunch, we all sat around and looked at pics and talked. We then decided to play a round of FARKLE! I was so excited that Heath was off work on Monday because he was able to come to Me-Maw and Paw-Paw's too!! Chloe decided to rest with Heath after lunch! Look how sweet and cute she is :)

 Remember Chad? This is my uncle who went skydiving with me and who is always grilling something fabulous up on the grill!
After we left my grandparentshouse, we headed home and Heath and I had a relaxing evening watching movies :) 
I totally scored that top at Gap for 40% off :) I decided to add the belt and voila!
