Somebody find my ruby slippers~ a storm is comin


-Hello hurricane season-
do you mind leaving my labor day alone?

looks like Hurricane Earl is heading towards
good ol' North Carolina
hope that he doesn't hit the coast too bad

if the power goes out
maybe we'll build a fort in the living room
candle light makes everything 
so much more fun

                               “When you are asked if you can do a job,

                                tell 'em, 
                                 'Certainly I can!' 
                                  Then get busy and find out how to do it.”
                                                         -Theodore Roosevelt

                                                                  I am taking my cue from President Teddy
                                                                   I've been promoted at work
                                                                    so thats why I've been slow to post lately
                                                              but no worries
                                                        My sassy self will be back soon!

17 North Roadside Kitchen - farm to table in my own backyard

~My favorite moment from our fantastic meal out last night~
me: "Do you want to try my Macaroni & Cheese- it's amazing."
(Boyfriend swiftly grabs the souffle dish with amazing mac and cheese and plucks  off parsley garnish)
Boyfriend-very serious voice:" Get that vegetable away from my mac and cheese."
(boyfriend dives into the pasta)

17 North Roadside Kitchen is our new favorite restaurant
~they grow their own veggies~
it's a seasonal and sustainable restaurant in my own backyard
and their patio is gorgeous 
(I am a sucker for fairy lights)

the 19th amendment.


**Happy 90th Birthday**
to the 19th Amendment 

The right of citizens of the United States
 to vote shall not be denied 
or abridged
 by the United States
 or by any State 
on account of sex.

It's kinda crazy that women have been able to vote
for less than 100 years
(gotta love 'em)
made a fantastic film a few years ago
Iron Jawed Angels 
starring the fab' Hilary Swank

even the preview makes me tear up!

Run don't walk

~See the above tiny potato~

I boil them in heavily salted water
and the glaze them in chicken broth
-and garlic-
when they stock boils down to nothing
i stir in butter and fresh parmesan 
health food?
Heck yea!

Where is Rikki-Tikki-Tavi when you need him

They say that snakes are more scared of you 
than you are of them
*this guy doesn't look scared at all*

Stiletto, I look at it more as an attitude as opposed to a high-heeled shoe. Lita Ford

Shoes are the icing to my outfits
I'm not very into jewelry 
~other than a lovely pair of freshwater pearl earrings that go with everything~
(but if anyone wants to give me jewelry its ok by me)
 *Shoes are my go-to accessory* 
My newest pair of shoes are aching to go out
and put a dent on this town
and an ache in my step
they are positively wicked

*shoes from shoedazzle*

How have I never seen this show before-

Veronica Mars splash

~Netflix has done it again~
Veronica Mars is a fantastic show
it's a little bit Nancy Drew
and a little bit Charlie's Angels
How could it be better?
*I am obsessed*

When I was a kid
Nancy Drew was my favorite fictional heroine
-she still kind of is-

When you look at your life, the greatest happinesses are family happinesses. ~Joyce Brothers

There is nothing better
than a 
*Family visit*
(and i am not just talking about the free dinners people)
My moms birthday was this past Friday
~and she spent it here~
in lovely
South Carolina
so I got to indulge in some serious
Momma & Daddy time
We beached it at the Isle of Palms
ate at my favorite Cantina
and had an all around
~fantastic time~

~the bangs were okay though~

Happy Farmers Market Week!

the Shuler Peach Co. 

I have an abnormal love for farmers markets
and flea markets
*just add "market" to the name and I am there*

The Mount Pleasant Farmers Market
is held on Tuesday afternoons
*when its extra hot and sticky*
the town was nice enough to build us
a very nice new facility 
the produce is local
and very tasty
~Johns Island has some great organic farms~
a bonus to living on the coast
is our farmers market always
*has fresh caught seafood as well*

I enjoy afternoons eating crepes
picking out fresh produce
drinking fresh squeezed lemonaide 

could a summer afternoon be sweeter?
*Lulu loves it too*
