Although we didn't go to Mardi Gras this year, we still had a fun night filled with good friends, awesome hurricanes, delicious red beans and rice (thanks Katie!) and the best king cake I have ever had.  Ben made the hurricanes using this recipe, which I highly...

My new oxfords were waiting for me on my porch swing yesterday when I came home for lunch.   Nothing beats coming home to realize you have a package!  Especially when you were not expecting it until the next day. I have only had them for a day, but I really heart them.  Plus I found them on sale

A couple of weeks before Christmas, a friend of mine asked me to model some vintage clothes for her Etsy store, Kissing Cousin.  I love vintage anything and I especially love exploring abandoned hotels.  Despite it being the coldest day of the year, it was quite a lovely afternoon.

This New Year's Eve, Ben and I attended the wedding of Bena Vedros and Jason McCain in Houma, Louisiana.  They are two of our really good friends and we are so happy that they got married!  After a night of celebration, we went to New Orleans on New Year's day.  Bena and Jason live in New Orleans and invited us for a huge sleepover at their apartment.  It was so much fun.  I think the pictures from New Orleans are appropriately dirty.

This past weekend, my husband and I drove to Houma, LA because his band, The Devil, You and Me had a gig at The Boxer and the Barrel.  It is always nice to see my friends who now reside in LA and of course to see my husband play the washtub bass but the drive takes forever.  About 5 and 1/2 hours to be exact. During this trip I made the most pleasant discovery, which made the drive quite delightful.  MPB (Mississippi Public Broadcasting) Radio archives past program airings into podcasts available for free on their website.  I have never...

WPA (Works Progress Administration) posters were commissioned as a part of President Roosevelt's New Deal to promote public works projects such as community activities, educational programs, cultural programs, travel/tourism, public health and safety programs.  I think these posters are really cool and some are even pretty funny.  What is even cooler is that you can browse the Library of Congress WPA Poster Collection here.  Have...

For Halloween this year, I went as Pre-Princess/Grimm's Fairytale Cinder Ella.  My friends and I went to a local bar's annual Halloween Bash.  Nobody got my costume, I mean I thought my costume was clever but whatever.  Maybe I should have been less clean looking.  Everyone knows that Cinderella was dirty.
