Kicking Myself Down Lilly Lane

So, when the Jubilee Collection came out, Mr. Bliss wasnt done with law school and I was quitting my horrific job. So, dropping $498 on this beauty was out of the question. BUT I HAVE TO HAVE IT... If anyone sees it as they Lilly Shop or anyone wants to get rid of theirs, let me know!!!!!

The Final Countdown

I am nerd, I know. But I am so excited about the Final Season of Lost. Anyone else watch?? Mr. Bliss and I are totally addicted. I will totally freak out on ABC if they do not give us some explanations and a good solid ending, WE DESERVE IT!

No, not me! I have been happily married for almost 4 years! WOW, how time flies!

But, my best friend is about to be engaged and I would really like to get her something special as soon as she says YES! Paper? Jewelry? I just don't know.

Any ideas, I know some of you preppy and wonderful gift givers might have some great suggestions. Please send them my way!

A Weekend of Wonderful!

This weekend Mr. Bliss and I are going to The Greenbrier! I am so excited for all of the wonderful pink and green fabrics, wallpaper and decor. It is the mecca for all things preppy!

I haven't been since they have a new owner. There are new restaurant's and a casino. I am just hoping the wonderful old charm is still in tact. I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

The Thrill is Gone!

Being a native Texan ,one of the biggest excitements of life on the East Coast was experiencing actual seasons. Well, I am telling you.. I have experienced Winter and the 24 inches of snow that have fallen since December and I am DONE! It was pretty and white, but then the power was out for 2 days and Saturday Mr. Bliss and I bought a new furnace. A new furnace = a LOT of new shoes!!! I woke up warm this morning, but the snow has started again.. I have to say I am over it and dreaming of Spring! I am sure many of you out there are feeling the same way! So here is a little something warm to start your day!

New Year... New Job... New Me

Daffodil Means new Beginnings

Hello Ladies!

I can not believe that I have been gone from the blogging world since July. So much has happened and I felt that it was time for a come back (hopefully it won't be a Britney comeback and get cancelled)!!! I needed to focus on making my life what I want it to be and now I feel like I am up and running. Here is the five second update for 2010!

I have a new job and I feel like it was made for me. I am happy and thriving, plus it is something I believe in! Don’t worry Mitt Romney- you are still my first priority, just not on a full time basis!

Mr. Bliss and I bought a house and it is wonderful! It is exactly what I would have wanted if I could have chosen any home. Now, it is so much fun decorating and making our home.

Mr. Bliss passed the bar, WOHOO!!!

Mr. Bliss and I are the proud parents of a little Westie named Sidney. She is the cutest puppy and has a darling personality.

I started Atkins today and have decided to go to a Personal Trainer every Monday to keep myself motivated and start my week off right! Hopefully, this will be my last New Year to worry about losing those stubborn LBS!

And let’s just say a few other things have clicked into place and I can put old goals to rest, they have been achieved!!

Well, I hope everyone had a wonderful and merry holiday season and a safe and happy New Year. Here is to 2010 being a wonderful year and a fresh beginning to achieve your goals!
