Since my son is in his second year at Ole Miss, Oxford has become one of my new favorite destinations. It is consistently ranked as one of the most beautiful college campuses, year after year.
Well…if you’ve read my previous blog posts or talked to me in person, you probably get the idea that I’ve become completely disenchanted with the proposed Port Marigny project in Mandeville. Even worse…I have absolutely ZERO trust, with regards to anyone on the payroll of Port Marginy (gotta go with my gut here). They are […]
Dear Mandeville neighbors, politicians (in office and running), We fell in love with Mandeville, when we moved here in 2007. We recently bought our “forever home,” and I’m OK if my next stop is the St. Tammany morgue. I can be seen walking my dogs down to Sunset Point each day. You also might spot me running, […]
I wish I wore some shrimp boots to the Planning and Zoning meeting last night, because I felt like there was a lot of ***t being shoveled out to the audience. Yes, following my fact piece, regarding the Pre-Stressed Port Marigny development, I’m going to give you my candid thoughts and opinions. Honestly, the “they […]
The intent of this blog post is not to share my opinion (that may come later), it is to list 40 current facts about Mandeville’s newest proposed development, called “Port Marigny.” As residents of West St. Tammany, we should all be informed of something of this magnitude. I’ve taken the liberty of sketching in a few […]
My New Year’s resolution to focus on my blogs, has really paid off….NOT! The parade of sticky notes on my computer that simply said, “BLOG,” did not help much either!
You may not know the family of LTC Keith Higley and Cat, and neither do I. However, through a local military connection, I was asked to help this grieving military family from out of state, gain some closure in the New Orleans hit and run death of their son, Zach Higley on July 4, 2014. The Higley […]
Ask me what I’m doing Friday night, somewhere in the timeframe between 6 and 9, and my response will be, “that is our date night.” Each Friday night, hubby and I head out for a couple of hours on our self-proclaimed “date night.” We have been doing this for about 4 years now and just […]
Vote for Joe Merrick: The Voice Extra Rally It is not every day, that Joe Merrick, the super “cool kid” from JR. high band, who you may have had a crush on or not, gets a video audition sent to the Voice and you have a chance to vote. Ya, Joe and I go back […]
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 […]
This school social media poster, hangs in the hall of one of my kid’s schools. It was one of my most interacted Instagram pictures. Dear fellow parents of teenagers. This letter is written to you by a Mom, who is considered a “social media expert.” I was thrilled when this letter from St Tammany Parish […]
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. […]
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. My kids always (or so I like to think), enjoy how my hubby and constantly joke with each other, especially making Seinfeld references. The poor kids grew up knowing about FROLF, but thinking it was as real as unicorns. Recently, I’ve […]
Holy King Cake – there is a new “military” Mardi Gras Krewe in town, named Legion of Mars. They are set to roll in 2015, but you can get involved now. If you have been following along here, or with my other blog Hooah Wife, you will know that I am usually quite involved (more […]
