1.) Tea Cups - I love receiving and buying tea cups. I have a beautiful tea set that I often use. It makes me feel girly and I feel special when I drink flavored tea from them.
2.) Hair product- I love getting my hair done. I should have gone to beauty school because only stylist get as excited about hair color/products as much as I do. I love trying new colors and cuts. My poor husband never knows what I'll look like when I return home from a afternoon at the salon.
3.) Milk Duds- I love them!!! When I have a bad day I stop by the store and buy a box of Milk Duds and all my troubles seem to melt away with one after another delicious dud.
4.) Bubble Baths- I love to use scented bubbles and sit in a warm bath during the cool winter months. It makes me feel pampered.
5.) Tennis- I love to play tennis. It's helps me balance my stress level. It doesn't matter what's going on in my life if I play a good game I feel like a million bucks.
6.) Lipstick- I'm addicted to lipstick. I can't leave the house unless I have lipstick on. I even wear it to the gym. It's a sickness, LOL!!! And I'm constantly looking up the new colors and make up lines.

My "Want List"
Floral Garden Boots. I would be styl'n in my yard in these boots. And they keep those pesty red ants off my toes.
Look at this beautiful bird house! Wow, our birds would feel "up town" in a house like this.

Here's some of my favorite gifts I got:
Two New Orleans cook books I've had my eye on for some time.
My favorite magazines (back issues I don't have) and yearly subscriptions.
Look what my hubby got me! It's a cute little pendant that reads, "LOVE YA LA." Even though we live in Texas our hearts will always belong to New Orleans. Louisiana will always be the root of our marriage. Gotta love that pendant...
He also bought me a ton of make up from my favorite line, 3 Ann Taylor purses, a really cute Ann Taylor skirt, and some really cute journals that I like to use for jotting down new boutiques, shops, and websites. All in all it was a fantastic Birthday weekend!

Most of y'all know that I'm a huge Layla Grace fan. However, her things are a bit on the pricey side. I get a lot of my ideas from her site and her blog. Y'all, check out this adorable cake plate. You can find this on her site at laylagrace.com retailing for $150.00 for all three. But I've seen them in kitchen stores at any kitchen outlet for under $50 each. I saw something very similar at Walmart for around $30.00 so you'll have to shop around. I have a plate similar to this and it's so great because I just change the color of ribbon to suit the holiday. Very simple but elegant.

When Richard and I use to live in California we would pack a picnic, jump in the car, and go. We wouldn't have a destination but would explore the back roads and countryside. When we came across beautiful scenery we would pull over and have ourselves a feast. Those are some of my favorite memories. Carefree, simple, and taking in God's creation. Well, I have no idea what happened to our old picnic basket so I'm on a mission to look for another. I'm thinking since Texas is so BIG we have a lot of exploring to do. Look at these cute baskets I came across.....
