Today I was in a car for 5 1/2 hours.  Part of the 5 1/2 hours included rain and a car hydroplaning out of control on a bridge in front of us.  When I got home, I discovered that our cable provider's recent channel lineup change resulted in the addition of AMC and specifically Mad Men.  Tonight AMC is showing a Viewer's Choice Marathon of Season One episodes.  Next Monday, July 12th is the Viewer's Choice Marathon of Season Two.  Monday July 19th is the Season Three Viewer's Choice Marathon...

This past weekend Ben and I went to the farmer's market in Starkville.  It was our first time to visit the market since they moved to their brand new location.  We had a blast and it is very apparent that the market's organizers have worked very hard to make the new location really nice.  I feel like our little town is improving and I couldn't be more excited about it. Everything we bought was so delicious!

I am really into tiny houses.  Especially Eco-friendly,  energy efficient,  recyclable tiny lake cabins. What is better than a cabin on a lake during the summer?  Nothing I can think of really. Well,  maybe a tiny cabin on a lake with a tiny dog beside me.  Zoe would love this cabin. (Ben- My birthday is coming up. ...

Link to Baggu’s Duck Bag 1/2 Off Today Only!

This morning opening my inbox was more delightful than usual.  I received an email from Baggu proclaiming 1/2 off their Duck Bag for 24 hours only. I love my current Baggu which I also bought for my Bridesmaids last year.  It is so handy and such a cute green alternative to plastic shopping bags. Using one BAGGU for one year replaces 300 to 700 disposable bags. -Baggu I can't wait until this gem comes in the mail and for only $10, I am quite happy.

Or this... ($5 says that someone I went to high school with will be dressed like Romy or Michele) In order to psych myself up,  I got out my Senior yearbook.  These are my best friends from high school.  They made high school fun. and finally...
