Celebrating 36

Mama and I began the day’s festivities with mani/pedis at a nail salon downtown. After our bit of relaxation and pampering, we walked around and enjoyed the warm sunshine, bright blue sky and brilliant flowered trees. We also met a group of inspiring kids protesting gun violence. We continued our birthday tradition of beignets, but…

Gosling spotting

On a trip to the post office today, we spotted what looked like a few dozen baby geese. The little white birds were hanging out in the rain-soaked, back field of a local junior high school, and we pulled over to take a closer look. Paisley was especially interested, so we didn’t want to scare…

Wrapping our faces in lace

We love to do home facials, and tonight Mama and I tried new facial masks by Lace Your Face. These all-natural masks, which were featured recently on SharkTank, hook over your ears so they stay in place (unlike most sheet masks). Each mask can also be used twice.

“Good To Be Alive”

Mama and I especially love the song “Good To Be Alive” by Andy Grammer. The song holds a special meaning for us, and we enjoy belting it out together around the house. Tonight we got to see Andy Grammer sing his popular song as a duet with one of our favorite quirky contestants on American Idol,…
