New Vera Bradley

Let's talk about how much I love the new Vera Bradley spring patterns. I love the look of Hope Garden. This bag will make an excellent addition to my collection!


Last Sunday, my mom and I attended a local bingo. Now, I know what you're thinking...BINGO?!

Seriously. It's so fun! We go to Longaberger and Vera Bradley bingos every chance we get. The last two times we've gone, I've won! The proceeds of the bingo events always go to a local cause. This one was for our county's School Cook's Association. My mom was a teacher for 35 years, so this was certainly near and dear to her heart!

It's a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon with the woman you love the most!

This time, I won an adorable Longaberger basket with salt and pepper shakers. There was also a gift certificate to Olive Garden inside! How fun! :)

7 Reasons I love Starbucks...

This one's for you, Jan.

1. Baristas. How cool is that? The people that make the drinks are called baristas. Quite frankly, when I grow up, I want to be a barista!

2. The green straw. A funky straw makes everything taste better. Remember crazy straws? Everything tasted better with them right? Same goes for the green straw from Starbucks.

3. Seasonal flavors. White Chocolate Peppermint Mocha. Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate. What could be better than coming up with seasonal drinks? I'd love to be on the taste testing board for determining new drinks each season. Mmmmmm...

4. Skinny lattes. Oh, right. Like anyone ever gets those! I think Starbucks is just being funny here.

5. Coffee mugs. Some of my favorite coffee mugs are from Starbucks! From the Valentine's Day thermos to the Philadelphia mug, I love all of my unique Starbucks coffee-holders.

6. Looking important. C'mon. Let's be honest here. Don't you feel like a corporate exec or a cool coffee houser when you stride with Starbucks in hand? You know you do!

7. The mermaid. A brand that has a mermaid as its "mascot" has to be top-notch.
