I am ready for some football y'all!  It has been exciting watching the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in preseason and in less than two weeks we'll be back at Doak Stadium for the Florida State games.

Go Bucs!

Go Noles!

This is some of the fashion I'm liking for Gameday this year.  The "Team Spear-It" dress is available at Twelve Saturdays.  They have a lot of cute Gameday dresses and accessories.

For casual Gamedays, I love the "Southern Belle" Seminoles tee!  You can get this cute tee from Callie Kays.

I also love the "Tailgating" tee from Couture Tee Company.

If you are looking for cute Gameday totes, Marley Lilly has adorable geo print team totes.

Don't forget to read this fabulous book "Gridiron Belles," A Guide to Saturdays in Dixie!

If you are looking for more Gameday outfits and accessories, this is a list of vendors I love:

If you have favorite spots for cute Gameday dresses or accessories, please share!

Little Book of Etiquette

This book, by etiquette and protocol maven Dorothea Johnson, is a handy reference for those who need to brush up on their dining etiquette.  The pocket-size book will show you how to "Eat at ease as a guest or as a host in business and social arenas worldwide."

There is a lot of information packed into this tiny book (it's 3" x 3"), covering:

Dining Dos and Don'ts
Table Talk
American and Continental Styles of Eating
The Dining Tutorial
Eating Various Foods
Finessing the Business Meal
Forms of Service

This book is available on Amazon and would make a great gift for new college students, those entering the business world, or a gift to young people.

Good table manners are the ultimate symbol of who you are and how you were raised.

Lilly Pulitzer Agenda

I always get excited about the Fall season.  I've been busy finding a few new pieces to add to my Fall wardrobe and organizing my new agenda.    I'm still loving the "Tusk n Sun" print Lilly Pulitzer agenda and chose it for the second year in a row.  Being an extremely organized person, I have notes, lists, and appointment times for every single day.  These are some of my agenda planning tools.

In addition to my agenda, I also have the Lilly Pulitzer notebook, with a "To-Do" list for each day.  Rarely do I cross off everything on the list...the items usually carry over to the next day and the days after that!

I do not leave home without my iPad, iPhone, agenda, or notebook!  This Lilly Pulitzer notebook folio in the 'Wild Confetti' print can hold it all.  It is truly a must-have!

Of course I love to priss up my agenda.  Lilly Pulitzer includes a sheet of Lilly stickers inside their agendas and you can buy more of their stickers online.

The Preppy Planner has the cutest Lilly-inspired stickers ever!

For more preppy-inspired stickers, go to Pretty Little Monograms.  How cute are these stickers?!
