My New Classy Tattoo “Cover-Up”

Category: life Date: 17 February 2014 3:10

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. […]

TV & Netflix Series to Watch

Category: entertainment Date: 14 February 2014 3:02

Here is the post I put on my personal Facebook account a couple of weeks ago: Confession: I mainly stick to mindless Bravo TV. Looking for an on-demand or Netflix series to watch. The last one I really watched was the Sopranos. I saw a few Mad Men and some Dr. Who too. If my […]

I have played disc golf or frisbee golf, several times in my adult life.

Would Roger Staubach write “Go Army?”

Category: military Date: 10 December 2013 1:55

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 […]

The red beans irony…

Ya…the irony of me cooking red beans…I’m a transplanted Yankee living in the south, vegetarian, Jewish woman cooking this meal.

This Senior Year Thing….

Category: kids Date: 18 November 2013 3:41

Not sure what makes it more real, ordering the official Senior year pictures today or seeing him off on the bus for his last Cross Country meet as a senior. Either way, my first born, Drew, is on his way to leaving the nest. This time next year, he will be away at Ole Miss […]

A Difficult Patient

Category: humor Date: 25 October 2013 5:52

I Have a Profile! Once again my Infiniti ended up in the shop and the laughs with my husband began. Why? Because we always joke that I have a profile there, like Elaine did in Seinfeld’s “The Package” episode. She finds out that her chart has “a difficult patient” written on it and will go […]

With Top Chef taking place in New Orleans this season, everyone in the country seems to be talking about New Orleans food.

We had a crazy summer, driving over 2500 miles for my son to visit colleges on his list. The third school he visited was Ole Miss (University of Mississippi). We then went on to visit many more and this school consistently stayed at the top of the list! He was sucked in by just about […]

Military Support: Louisiana Heroes Project

I’ve been involved in some sort of volunteer military support, since I met my husband 21 years ago. Some of it has been through positions, while much of it takes place behind the scenes. Though I’ve come to love my support roles behind the scenes, I was honored to be asked to sit on the […]

Back in March of 2013, Southwest began their direct flight service from New Orleans (MSY) to Key West (EYW). My hubby has always been a huge fan of Key West, where I have only been there for a day trip as I’ve spent a lot of time in Islamorada. He has been wanting to go […]

I’ve been on the road for one week now. I’m traveling with my teen boys to do the “college tour thing,” while getting the most of our travels. My boys may joke that I’m “old,” “un-fun” and “boring,” but they are now the ones falling into their hotel beds LOL! As we just got into […]
