This and That

A little of this...

This week husband and I have been celebrating our wedding anniversary all week! We went out for dinner the other night to a local gourmet-style restaurant...11 Maple Street, Jenson Beach, Florida. Fabulous! I must tell y'all that I had PUMPKIN Creme Brulee. I'm still feed my pumpkin obsession up to the last days of the season! Then...it's on to gingerbread and peppermint everything! This restaurant is quite famous in the area for great service and awesome food. You can visit their site online 11MapleStreet.net.



I was soooo rushed getting ready for dinner and chose an outfit that did not go with husband's outfit at all! My wardrobe is very preppy and conservative, but husband's wardrobe is the complete opposite. He would not be caught dead in a sweater vest or a pullover cardigan, a polo shirt, loafers, or anything monogrammed. No sir! It's all Tommy Bahama's for husband. I'm not sure where I got him from...well, yes I do! He's a Yankee!!! He claims he's a Southerner 'cuz he grew up in Clearwater, Florida--he was born in Illinois and his family moved to Clearwater when he was a baby. Hmmm, there are two problems with that. {I told him that it didn't matter. "If your mama had you in a hospital in Illinois and then drove you to Florida to live, you are NOT Southern mister! Besides, Clearwater, Florida isn't Southern anyway."}

I snapped a shot of my outfit before shooting out the door...The wool jacket is from the now-closed BarriePace and the black slacks are from Macy's. I wore my camel/black Chanel ballet flats and carried my black Chanel 2.55 pocketbook.
A little of that...

Awhile back, I signed up to take part in a 'Preppy Christmas Swap' hosted by Daphne at FlipFlopsAndPearlsGirl. We were instructed to buy pink & green monogrammed gifts for our swap partner. Well goodness gracious, the pressure was on ME!:) My swap partner was Miss Daphne herself!!! Thinking about it now, I did send her something monogrammed, but I didn't send her one pink & green thing:( Shame on me! I think she liked her loot though.


Anywho...here's my loot from Miss Daphne...

A 'Lolita-Love My Wine' holiday goblet. All the Lolita goblets have a beverage recipe on the bottom and mine is for "Holiday Baubles." I can't wait to prepare the drink and feature it here for y'all!

This goblet will also come in handy through the holidays during "Merlot Hour."

She also sent some cute notecards, with my monogram in pink and green {Miss Daphne followed the rules!} Now y'all know I'll use thesecards!!!

Last, but certainly not least...a Lilly koozie in the 'Frisky Business' pattern. Miss Janice's never drinks her diet caffeine-free coke from a naked beverage can. What a cute coverup! *Love*

Y'all must stop over and visit Daphne! She has the cutest blog and is a wonderful blog and Twitter friend of mine.

Thank you for visiting with me today! Have a wonderful weekend y'all!

Happy Anniversary, Miss Janice!!! Even on this anniversary week, I agree with you that the Mr. is certainly not Southern born, but surely he's picked up enough Southern qualities from you to "fake" it sometimes! (lol) What a precious little place to celebrate an anniversary. Happy Thanksgiving and give your sweet Mama a hug from Mimi.
