So, what have I been up to??? Lord have mercy, I had company AGAIN! My Yankee friend Denny was headed back up North to his homeland and stopped in to spend the night. We have known each other...well, a very long time and I always like visiting with him. Friday night we went for a tres casual dinner at Olive Garden. I know some of you might turn your nose up at the OG...but, I love it! Pasta, bread, salad, wine, cappuccino, and a delicious dessert...what's not to like?!
I must tell y'all about a new dessert they offer at the OG...Piccoli Dolci "little dessert treats', layered with cake, mousse, pastry creams, and berries. LOVE these! They are only $2.50 each. Yes ma'am, I like a deal!
"HERE'S WHAT I WORE" The skirt is the precious 'Croc Monsieur' pattern by Lilly and the lime green cardigan is also by Lilly. I wore a white blouse with a Peter Pan collar, and my monogram on the collar...in pink. Love this cute blouse from Land's End. I wore my pink mules by Lilly and carried my Nantucket pocketbook. I wore my pearl necklace and pearl stud earrings and of course my rollring wedding band by Cartier. My ponytail was adorned with a pink grosgrain ribbon bow and my fragrance of choice was 'Wink' by Lilly.
Miss Coco was happy as usual to see her uncle Denny and of course wanted to look her best..."HERE'S WHAT MISS COCO WORE" Her bandanna is the same pattern as her mama's skirt...'Croc Monsieur' by Lilly. Her little collar and leash were custom made in the same Lilly pattern. Her top knot was adorned with a pink and green ribbon bow. Now, I'd love to be able to tell y'all about a fabulous event I attended on Saturday...but, the truth is that I worked out at the gym, cleaned the front porch from top to bottom, and worked in the garden. Posh huh? I'm sure y'all think I'm a boring blogger lately, but I've been doing a lot of organizing and maintenance around the house. My goodness, I'm Spring Cleaning and it's late August!!!
Today, I went to church and "HERE'S WHAT I WORE" The boring beige shift (I don't wear this color much, 'cuz I feel so boring-looking in it) is the same style as the dress I wore to church last week and it also came from Appleseed's years ago.
I think the darling Gucci ballet flats and the Gucci pouchette pocketbook really make the shift a little cuter, don't y'all? I wore my gold monogrammed choker necklace and matching earrings along with my rollring wedding band by Cartier. My ponytail was adorned with a boring beige grosgrain ribbon bow. My fragrance of choice was Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel.
After church...lunch at Panera Bread. It has rained all day long y'all, so cream of chicken & rice soup, caesar salad, and warm bread hit the spot!!! I did a little shopping at Joann Fabrics, cruised Dillard's to check out the fall Lilly loot (of which there were maybe three dresses), then it was back to the gym for moi (hey, I'm 5k training y'all)!
Some comfort food at my dining room away from home...Panera Bread!
Organizer. Fuss Pot. Perfectionist. OCD Person. Stickler for Details. Yes, I am one of those people you may have met before...my house has to be clean and neat, as does my car, the garage, and the yard. I am a neat freak!!! Yes, I am. Sometimes important things don't get done 'cuz I'm organizing and straightening up stuff like a crazy person. I've been that way my whole life. I am almost done with my current round or organizing and cleaning around the house...with the exception of the messy garage--which is next on my to-do list. So, I hope to be back to a regular blogging schedule this week!
Thank you so much for visiting with me today. Have a wonderful week y'all!
