All Volunteery Eyed

Alright, I just may be in over my head. I've got entirely too much on my plate right now. If you haven't heard from me, I'm still alive and not ignoring you. I've just got A LOT going on!
It's officially Wednesday now and I haven't slept a wink, yet. I'm hoping to get in bed after I fold the last load of clean clothes. I'm half packed for my flight to Palm Springs, which leaves in about 8 hours (9 am).

I would have gotten in bed at a decent hour if I didn't have a 2 and a half hour JA meeting tonight. Yep, my first one that I've made it to. Let me just say... provisional = pledge. I swear it's just like a sorority, only worse. You pay dues, volunteer a bazillion hours, and there's not even a swap or formal to look forward to!

Speaking of sorority & volunteer, I'm off to learn some new rah-rah recruitment tips and to pick up a few awards at Convention. Yes, I'm doing the whole Recruitment Advisor thing again in August. So contact me if you know any great girls that just graduated from high school and are going through Rush at Mississippi State.

I'll be back next week...

Summer Swap

S- Seersucker Belt by lulu belle bags

U- Ultra-Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock by Neutrogena

M- Madras Handbag by lulu belle bags

M- Monogrammed Beach Towel

E- Essie Enamel Nail Polish- Essential Color Mademoiselle

R- Recipes- Summer Favorites

Many, many thanks to Heather from Life with Lulu for her fabulous Summer Swap package! Heather is the mom of three precious girls and is a very creative handbag designer. Imagine my surprise when I received this large box of goodies after being away on business for so long. The gifts were to have a summer theme and boy did she put thought into her items. From the seersucker belt to the madras handbag, to the sunblock and beach towel, she really outdid herself. And thanks to her, I'm all set for summer now. If any of these items are an indication of her personal taste, then I know we would be dangerous shopping together. I absolutely loved it all! It's hard to pick a favorite item but I'll leave you with one of the recipes she sent that Hubby and I can't wait to try...

Skip and Go Naked

1 container of frozen limeaid

1 limeaid container filled with vodka

3 beers

Pour over ice in a pitcher, mix or shake... serve over ice!

Best beach drink EVER! - Heather

Rowdy Frynds Recap

All our rowdy friends have not settled down!

This past Friday we went with eight of our friends to the Forum to see Hank Williams, Jr. And Lynyrd Skynyrd was a bonus. For those of you who attended, you know how exciting it was. For those of you who didn’t, you definitely missed out. The pictures above don't really do the night justice. Yes, it was that much fun!

Russell's Memorial Weekend

Hubby and one of his best friends, Greg Ochs, had a much more adventurous Memorial Weekend. They hiked the Grand Canyon! My only request was that he take plenty of pictures. He did take a good number of them but they were all on Kodak disposable cameras since he broke his father's digital camera at the BEGINNING of the trip. Typical. Yes, those are snowflakes you see in some of them. Apparently, it was snowing at the top when they started so the visibility was not the greatest. They were also able to fly fish on the Colorado River since they hiked with their poles. It appears he had a great time without me!

I tried to get him to guest blog about the trip but for some reason he has prioritized jury trials & depositions over my blog.

Note: I apologize for the quality of the pictures. It will help to click on the collage to make them larger.

Hillary's Memorial Weekend

The Memorial Weekend was great, mainly because Megan came to visit me from Ohio! Thursday consisted of two trips to the aiport (one to drop off Hubby and another to pick up Meggy), a drive by Graceland, Meg's first taste of soul food, cocktails at the Peabody, lots of shopping, and pedicures. On Friday we hit the road early towards Orange Beach for Kassi & Marc's rehearsal dinner and wedding...

Best wishes, Kassi & Marc Rushing!

PS- Meg, only 1 week and we'll be poolside in Palm Springs together...

Roll Call!

I desperately need to update my blogroll. I've been meaning to do this for a while now but I keep procrastinating. I figure I'll use this as an excuse to buy me some time until I find a moment to post the new pictures you've been so patiently awaiting. If I don't have you on my current list to the right and you would like to be, please leave me a comment! Also, if you're listed and you'd prefer not to be then let me know that as well so I can remove the link. Even if you're a lurker and I've never personally met you, I'd love to add your blog to the list so my friends and I can get to know you.

Note: This is a great way to increase traffic on your blog and make new friends!

Rough (week) & Rowdy (night)

I just got back in town. I've been on business for the past week in High Point, NC showing my new fabric line. It looks great! All I ask is that you all go out and buy some type of furniture. Our industry is really hurting these days.

I apologize if you have e-mailed, commented, etc and I have not responded. I have a lot on my plate at the moment and I hope to play catch-up this weekend. I still owe you picutres of Hubby's big hike, Kassi's wedding, and Megan's visit over Memorial Day Weekend. However, I'm currently busy with the following this month... Showtime in Tupelo, VBS, JA meetings, DG Convention, MSU Recruitment, and the list goes on!

Tonight we have tickets with about a dozen of our friends to see Hank Williams, Jr. and Lynyrd Skynyrd on their "Rowdy Frynds" tour in Memphis. Who knows, I might have a few pics to show you just how redneck we are in Mississippi!

Material Girl

I'm still here "wining & dining" my customers. Sorry for the delay in posts! I should be back at it next week, if not sooner.
