Over the Weekend



It was another beautiful weekend here in South Florida...full of yucky, nasty LOVEBUGS! Here's a notice to all y'all--DON'T COME TO SOUTH FLORIDA DURING MAY!!! These things are disgusting! They have a cute name and that's where it ends:) They make such a mess!


Sunday morning I visited a new church. I LOVE the church I attend, but I really do need to find something closer to the house. Well, this one was NOT what I'm looking for...just NOT the right fit. Ugh!

"HERE'S WHAT I WORE" {i also wore it to lunch last week and just now remembered that...oops!} The shift is 'Creme Fraiche' by Lilly and the cardigan is also by Lilly.




It's the classic shift style with the bows at the bottom--the type that I love...


Love the strawberry print...
I carried my Nantucket Lightship Basket pocketbook and wore my pink Revas, along with a pearl choker necklace, the matching pearl earrings, and my rollring wedding band by Cartier. My ponytail was adorned with a pink grosgrain ribbon and my fragrance of choice for the day was 'Wink' by Lilly.




After lunch at Panera Bread, I came home and enjoyed a long afternoon nap! Next week I'm trying one more church; it's one that I've visited before...maybe this time I might like it more:) I'm still settling in after my trip to Georgia last week. I'll post some photos later this week of my BFF Teresa Jane's kitchen redo...it's too cute.

Oh, Blogger was down for a couple of days last week, so I extended the deadline to enter my giveaway until last night. DRUMROLL PLEASE....The winner of the giveway to celebrate National Etiquette Week is Lori Stewart. Lori has a blog His Way or Her Way--Lori and her brother Pete try to outdo each other's cooking with their dish challenges. Y'all check it out.

Now please practice proper giveaway etiquette and join me in congratulating Miss Lori! Thanks to all who entered the giveaway and y'all have a wonderful week!

You look darling in your "Creme Fraiche" shift. I have the same one and wish mine was as long on me as yours is on you.

I despsie love-bugs. I washed the front of my car three times this weekend! They will peel the paint real quick if not careful.
You look very cute in your Lilly!

Congratulations to Miss Lori, the winner. You look darling in the Lilly shift. As it was in the high 40's today, I would gladly take the lovebugs!

Oh Miss Janice, you are so right about those lovebugs! I hope they are gone when I come down that way at the end of the month. lol
It's so stressful switching churches. I hope you find the right fit soon.

Dear Miss Janice,

I've been reading for a awhile but hardly ever comment however I wanted to share something with you.

While curled up in my favorite chair in my comfy clothing watching TV last night I saw a commerical for something that I felt only you, being a Oh-so Southern Lady could appreicate. ( And since I'm not a fan, but a huge chocoholic!)

I think you should hop on over to the grocery store ASAP!
Have a great day!
