Last week, Liam had an appointment with his cardiologist in Jackson and we found out he will have to have another heart cath in October.  We were really upset, so we decided to cheer ourselves up and went to the zoo.  Although the Jackson Zoo is small and needs a makeover, it was a really good time.  Oh and please ignore his mismatched outfit, he threw up all over his clothes on the way to Jackson and this is a back up outfit. :)

Since I am from Columbus, it is easy to forget how nice it can be sometimes.  On Saturday, Ben and I had a fun little afternoon in Columbus.   We started off by going to Palmer Home Thrift Store, which is by far my favorite local thrift store.  Next I took Ben to see the Tombigbee  River and the old river bridge downtown.  In high school,  some nights we would climb over the walls that blocked off the entrance to the bridge and walk around on the old bridge like rebels.  Now the bridge is open for all to enjoy,...

I found out today that my vendor application for the 2010 Prairie Arts Festival in West Point, Mississippi was approved!!! Two of my friends (Nikki Ballard and Cory Waldrop) and I are going to have a booth at this year's Prairie Arts Festival on September 4th.  I am so excited.  Never in a million years would I have ever thought I would be selling homemade items, much less at the PAF.  The PAF is kind of a big deal.  I have gone to the PAF about ten times over...

At the Cotton District Arts Festival this year, my husband bought me a beautiful  handmade headband  by Molly Gee Designs.   The designer Molly Waggener is delightful.   I was instantly drawn to her booth because her display was lovely.  I must have asked her ten questions about her designs and her business.   Molly was really friendly and didn't seem bothered by me at all.  Oh did I mention she is from Mississippi.  I love that about her. Look at these pretty head pieces.  I can't decide which one is my favorite. Also the fact that her  photography was shot by the...

Link to Mississippi is #6

On December 17th a study released in the journal Science revealed that a person's view of their own happiness closely correlates to studies objectively measuring each states' quality of life based on factors such as temperature, sunshine, crime, cost of living, etc.  Read the whole article here. With that being said, it makes me happy to report that Mississippi has ranked in the top ten for something other than childhood obesity or teen pregnancy.  I find it funny that New York is last.  I also find it interesting...
