Happy Halloween y’all! This year I had a hard time committing to a costume. Gabby Douglas and the Coppertone Baby got tossed around. Ultimately, the weather dictated what I was going to be. Forty degrees and the Coppertone baby are not a match made in heaven.
I give myself extra points this year for coming up with my DIY costume the same day I planned to celebrate Halloween. A couple of stops at Spirit Halloween and Joann Fabrics and few buttons sewed on my Forever 21 sweater and…TA DA! Donald Duck.
Another highlight of Halloween in NOLA? The decorations along St. Charles. Check out the bones in the yard below! « Read the rest of this entry »

We had some five hours to go, but the views were worth it.
“Napa, next?” It was all MG had to say and my hiking boots went flying across the hotel room. Deuces Yosemite. It’s been real. It’s crazy days in court when I silently take a head trip to Napa Valley. Won’t you join me? « Read the rest of this entry »

Promises. Promises. My California adventure seemed so long ago. Summer went out with a bang. New Orleans battled Hurricane Isaac. A dear friend became terribly terribly ill only to make the most miraculous recovery. And BIG changes are happening at work. Fall is a welcome change–as is keeping my word.
As promised, here is a round up of the San Francisco leg of our summer vacation.
