Ruffle lover

Happy weekend girls!

For the first time in as long as i can remember ….i had a whole 24 hours to myself.

Heck….i don’t think i’ve EVER had 24 hours to myself since i’ve had babies.

alone… children ….no husband

Bryan flew out to Florida yesterday to spend the weekend with his family then he will bring

the kids home sunday just in time so that we can all take him to dinner for Fathers day.

My little apple dumpling has been in  bible camp then one of my best friends took him home

yesterday and kept him for the afternoon and he had his very first sleepover with his bestie.

The first thing i did was hit my fav store….T.J. Maxx…where i needed  wanted to get some new

shoes for the soiree i was headed to.

You see….i was invited to a party that was held at a local {swanky} riding club.

A few weeks ago i recieved an email from one of my readers …..

Debra who happens to also own a wonderful

garden shop in Geneva called Scentimental Gardens.

Anyhoo….she emailed me and asked if i wanted to come to a little get together she was hosting

and meet Eddie Ross.

The Eddie Ross….the stylist who used to work at Martha Stewart and House Beautiful.


You see…i needed new shoes….

and i found some.



The problem was choosing which pair to get……

so i got both.


Then i had to put my outfit together……

a big THANK YOU to Anthro for helping a girl out in a time of need.

I was able to invite a few of my girlfriends with me.

I like to say….what happens at the riding club…stays at the riding club.

okay…was that totally cheesy…..sorry.

Us girls had a blast meeting Eddie and his partner Jaithan {who i just adored}.

They invited me to come see them on the next time i head to the East Coast….

they’ll take me to the best flea markets….and show me the town.

Alright…..not really.

I invited myself…..

{then there was some awkward silence}





Sorry for the not so great photo…..

but i didn’t want you to think i made the whole thing up.

See….i really did need some new shoes.



The evening was fabulous….

and i know Eddie is taken..but look at him smiling with my arm wrapped around him.

I don’t think he smiles for just anyone.

Then i came home to a bed all to myself.

Now i need to go and get my little blond boy….hug and kiss him all over….

and thank my friend for taking him a whole 24 hours.

p.s. those yellow polka dot shoes are from T.J Maxx…and the pink rosette ones are

from DSW.
