You know how sometimes pictures lie? This week my pictures look all happy and such, but I was a moody b all week. So, just know that when you think, “Oh look how sweet.” Nope. Not this chic. Not this week.

Y’all know I just adore my friend P. Allen Smith for being a gracious host. The way he treats every visitor as if they were the most important person to ever step across his threshold is inspiring to someone like me, who tends to forget to offer company so much as a glass of water.
Nobody wants a vacuum cleaner for Christmas. (Or their birthday, anniversary, Mother’s day or any other gift receiving occasion.) This little axiom has been around as long as vacuum cleaners themselves, but it doesn’t always stand true. For instance, my brother and I were thrilled to receive Shop-Vacs for Christmas one year.

I asked Chris, Cade, Dustin, Steve, Neil and other random men (some of whom were complete strangers) what they want. This is what I got.
‘Tis the season. Guys: pay attention here. These are the things your s.o. (please email me if you don’t know what this means) wants. These are the best Christmas gifts for moms (or just women, we don’t discriminate against to the dog- or cat-lovin’ ladies out there who are not interested in sippy cups and sleepless nights).
It turns out I love Fall as much or more than I love Spring. This is new. I do not remember ever loving Fall before, but for some reason this year I can’t get enough.
