the damage it left behind is nothing short of a war zone.

Damage in Toney off of Carter's Gin Road

Shortly after posting last Wednesday, my power blinked off, the clouds became black, and the countless tornados struck. One after another, the city sirens blared.  The wind bent the trees parallel to the ground and carried debris across the roadways.  It was unlike anything I had ever seen, and the damage it left behind is nothing short of a war zone. 

Ironically NWH and I had already planned a get-away-weekend to ATL (which was wonderful).  But as we made our way back, it is still clear the terrible aftermath of the storms.  Over 300,000 are still without power (including us).  Restaurants and grocery stores are running off generators in effort to provide food and water to the community.  Then there are the hundreds of families who have lost loved-ones and friends.

NWH and I realize how blessed we are to be safe and sound.  A few ruined groceries and the lack of AC is nothing compared to what others are facing.  Please keep everyone affected by the storms in your thoughts and prayers.  It’s going to be a long recovery for many.

I cannot wait for Friday to get here!!!

Friday cannot get here soon enough!  On the calendar… a weekend trip to Atlanta!!  I’m so excited.  NWH and I just love getting away for a long weekend together.  We love staying in hotels and having “mini-vacations.” 

On the weekend agenda… seeing Shrek the musical!!  Just look at these pictures and tell me the show is not going to be amazing!! 

I love Broadway shows, but NYC is a little far so I’ll have to settle for the tours!  Did I mention I cannot wait for Friday to get here!!!

Easter Weekend Recap

We had an absolutely fabulous Easter weekend.  I hope everyone else did too!!  MIL and J-Man got here Friday evening.  Saturday NWH had to work, but MIL and I got out together. We enjoyed lunch, shopped a little, and then laid by the pool for a few hours.

Saturday night we went to our newest, FAV restaurant in town.  (They have the best crab cakes in the world!!).  The weather was perfect for sitting outside underneath the lights.


(J-Man acting crazy!)

Sunday morning NWH and I opened our huge Easter baskets from MIL and J-Man.  Next we were on to church, and afterwards we headed to the Country Club for a wonderful lunch together.  I just love our family and the time we get to spend together.

Um… did ya’ll see this?  Mariah and Nick’s luxurious babies’ room. 

Wow, I love this!  So shabby… so chic!  I love the bows on the cribs, pink and green; and the piping on the curtains pulls everything together. 

NWH and I are going to wait a while on the babies… but I love looking at inspiration for the “future-far-far-far-away-future-nursery.”

day dream with these beautiful Easter place settings.

Easter is just around the corner!!  And even though Easter Sunday lunch will be left up to the cooking staff at the Country Club, I just couldn’t help but day dream with these beautiful Easter place settings. 

Easter Spring Table Centerpiece


I got these floral placemats at Kohl’s not too long ago and will probably do a simple table top Friday night when MIL and J-Man get here.  I’ll be sure to take pics!

Wow!  Time flies when you’re having fun… or working, staying busy, going crazy, you name it!  I can’t believe it’s been over a week since I’ve posted.  A few days ago I thought, I need to post; it’s been a day or two! Hahaha!

Well, happy Monday to everyone.  I hope this week is fabulous…as fabulous as these photos.

MIL and J-Man are in the process of selling their beautiful home in Tennessee and trying to get to the big city of ATL.  I absolutely love Atlanta and all its amenities (I mean… all its shopping).   Here’s a condo they looked at call Drexel… how beautiful is this thing!

NWH and I enjoyed a pre-summer night eating, drinking, and talking outside.

Our weather was just perfect yesterday.  With highs in the upper 70’s, I thought it would a perfect evening to spend outside on our patio.  Geared with our ipad (and Pandora radio), NWH and I enjoyed a pre-summer night eating, drinking, and talking outside.

I picked up these citronella candles at Tj’s yesterday.  So much prettier than regular one’s I think.

Now… if only the plants on the patio were a bit greener!
