Yesterday, Ben and I got together with some close friends to grill out.  We also dyed and decorated Easter eggs.  It was pretty laid back and nice.  

 

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend.  I had a wonderful Easter weekend and the Cotton District Arts Festival was a blast as usual.  I promise to share photos of our booth this...

Link to Brunch in Bed is the best!

I had a fun long weekend.  Yesterday morning my husband went to City Bagel with our house guests and when they returned he brought me my brunch in bed.  My lazy sunday consisted of  a wonderful brunch,  a little Google reader catch up, a mini nap in my hammock and making a kite with Ben.  I couldn't have asked for a better day or a better husband.

Ben is pretty great and he understands my need for City Bagel after a long night.  It's a fact, City Bagel...

Lately my most favorite Friday or Saturday night activity is getting together with my close friends and playing bourre.  I don't know if it is the gambling, the drinking that accompanies the gambling, or simply that I am spending time with my good friends, but I love it. Bourre is not well known and therefore the people who play bourre are part of an elite group of card players.  It is a Cajun card game that originated in the Acadia region of Louisiana.  My friends and I were taught how to play bourre by my friend Katie Doughty's family...

This past weekend, I had 5 house guests and a surprise birthday party at my house.  Friday afternoon, four friends from Atlanta and one from Dallas came into town to celebrate our friend Katie's birthday.  Although I am pretty sure she had an idea something was going on, the party and the weekend as a whole was a success.  We had a surprise party on Friday night which included so many wonderful things to eat, a bonfire, beautiful table arrangements,  good music and good times.   Our relaxing Saturday included a delicious breakfast at City Bagel,  a garage...

My tulips are blooming!  I am so excited because these tulips are the first bulbs I have ever planted.   Last year I bought tulips that were about to bloom in a planter from Lowe's and re-planted them around my mailbox.   They immediately fell over.  Little did I know that they were not supposed to be re-planted.  I tried tying their little stems to a mini metal rose trellis, similar to the way you...
