My family just got back from Disney World this past week (can’t write about Disney Land, but I imagine similar). We were clueless about the brand new rollout of the FastPass Plus “FP+” systems, but we were in good company with many guests! First off make sure you have the My Disney Experience app on […]

My New Classy Tattoo “Cover-Up”

In my world, it is not every day that you get a new tattoo. Actually, it took me about 23 years to to get my first tattoo and another 23 to get my new tattoo cover-up. I really wanted one at the tender age of 18, but talked myself into waiting until I finished college. […]

Would Roger Staubach write “Go Army?”

Having Roger Staubach sign his autograph along with “Go Army,” sure would have been a priceless Army Navy game weapon. Unfortunately, we did not score that. My hubby and I were guests of USAA during their #nflsalute game in New Orleans this year. During the pre-game, Roger Staubach, hubby’s hero from when he was a […]

Our guests are soon to arrive from Georgia and this is dinner for tonight. One of them is actually originally from New Orleans and over the summer I made red beans and rice and he […]
