Southern Accents Says Good-bye
I was so sad to read this and can not believe another one of my favorite mags are no longer around!

A Note from Editor in Chief Karen Carroll
As many of you may have heard by now, Southern Accents is closing and the September-October issue will be our last. For the past 32 years, it has been our great privilege to work with so many talented, creative people to showcase beautiful houses and gardens, and to be a champion of the gracious lifestyle of this wonderful region we call home. We deeply appreciate the loyalty and support that our readers–both of the magazine and our blog–have shown us. You are the reason it has been such a joy to be a part of this industry and we appreciate you more than we can say.

Ok, it seems like I just disappeared. I have not been able to find the time to blog. I miss reading everyone's posts and hearing from everyone. It just seemed so much easier when the girls were home all summer. With school and all the extra activities and volunteering.... cooking & cleaning and all that goes along with being a SAHM and full time wife.....I have found little to no time for me. Matter of fact as I am writing this, I forgot that I have a tap class tonight. Doesn't look like I will be going, as hubbie went to NFL game tonight. Don't think they would appreciate me bring my girls to class.
Other then that we are loving fall and looking forward to the up coming holidays. The girls are scooting and riding bikes around the house. All have been feed and are ready for bed. I am so EXCITED about Zoe tonight. Sad this will be the last one of the season. Have a fabulous night & can't wait to hear from ya!! Missed ya tons. I also promise to post about the mermaids:)

Hope everyone is having a great September, I can not believe that it almost over. I am loving these Tretorn sneakers from JCrew!
I am also loving the Pumpkin Spice Latte's this season. Last year - I wasn't so into to them. This year - I can't get enough of them.

Hello.... I have some catching up to do... I so have to start posting again and read all my daily reads. I also have to acknowledge an award that I got. I totally forgot who gave it to me..... I have been away tooooo long.
Just watching one of my favorite fall movies. The Four Seasons... I feel in love with this movie as a child. Do you have any friends that you vacation with? I use to travel with the same three couples on every trip and then a break-up happened and we no longer vaca together. Traveling with friends you love..... Priceless!!!

As many of you know, we all have the flu here at my house. At least us Girls do!! This just came to my door from my Mother & Father In Law. How sweet and thoughtful!
As for MIL's..... let's just say -not all are created the same. As this one is a fabulous MIL.
Grammy Su-Su is beyond loving to my girls and I. She is my husband step mom. So even more fabulous that she is so loving & giving to us!!! I am beyond grateful. HUGS & THANK YOU!!! As Little Eloise G put it ..... cool... way cool!!
I am a true lover of Lilly...... I have worn her stuff for many years and have even had the pleasure of meeting the fabulous Lilly. With that being said, I am excited to see that this season's Lilly is returning to it's roots. The new shifts are not only cut the way they use to be... but the fabric is also thick. I have several of my old shifts by Lilly that all use to be this thick...yes the summer shifts too.
I have found some of the dress are so thin and not even lined. I also think the price of 168.00 & 198.00 is nice. Last season...some of the dresses were up to 400.00! I am all for quality...so if it made right then the price would not be shocking. At this price it sure makes you want to run out and buy it at full price...as usually most of us wait till those bad boys go on sale. Thoughts???

These are not my style, however I so had to post on the difference in price. At Gilt .com they are 88.00 & at Neimans they are 355.00!! I love seeing all the top brands at Gilt... I have not purchased from them yet. My BFF did and word to the wise.... it is final sale on most items. She ordered a really fabulous St. Christopher bracelet by Alex and Ani- it was not her style and she so graciously gave it to me. I am bananas for it ....as it came from her and well I was having one of those weeks! Huge Hugs!!!
So check out Gilt.com- but be sure to read the fine print.
How is your getting back to school going? I have one with a stuffed up nose and we all will be going in see if we have a cold.
Have a fabulous day!!

Then I am reading her post and truly think that we are sisters from another mother....as I share in her favorite things!!
Favorite Summer Cocktail......... This summer it was the Mojito. I am crazy for fresh mint leaves!!! Usually it is the Patron Margarita on the rocks- no salt..... fresh limes please!!!
Favorite Summer Movie........ Grease was my favorite summer movie for most my life. I saw it the day it came out ....for my birthday! I think I was eight? So that is a must!! I love to see Blue Crush.... it reminds me of my many summers in Hawaii. Some my say Cheesey movie...but the islands are the best!!! To date my favorite summer must is Something's Gotta Give.
It is like the Family Stone..... we start watching in October and it is our Family Christmas movie!!!
Favorite Summer Song........Summertime (1957 Version) done by the fabulous Ella Fitzgerald. However.. the Sam Cooke version is the one I remember listening too as a child. If that doesn't make you want to be at the beach with your toes in the sand and a cocktail in the hand.... I don't know what does!!!
Favorite Summer Time Outfit....... I live it everyday.... Lilly Pulitzer or White Dry Cleaned Jeans and a monogrammed polo. Of course pearls around the neck and Steve Bonnano's on the feet!!!
Favorite Summer Reading.......... You know I am a Town & Country girl and my summer reading list is theirs! Each summer they guide me to what I need to be reading!!! Geek Alert - I totally write down the books I need to read and cross them off as I go!!! Social Climbers is a must for anyone who has not read it....
Favorite Summer Moment......... Summer vacations with my family. I summered each summer with my grandparents in Hawaii.... those memories are priceless. I am hoping our girls will cherish the memories that we are making each summer.
WORK HARD-PLAY HARD!!!
I now tag these following fabulous blogs.......I hope I don't tag anyone already tagged..as I am a little late on this!!!
* Social Climbers
* Queen Bee & Her Boys

Ok...tonight is Atlanta Housewives!! I just found out who Big Papa was. Wow is his home off the charts. If you have not seen it - you have to check it out. It puts the Spelling Manor a run for it's money. I wonder if we will ever see Big Papa on the show? The wife seems so nice and sweet. Bless her heart! Ok - today was the first day that both girls were healthy and attending a whole day of school. I am beyond proud of them and miss them terribly. I must say it was so nice to be able to cook dinner - clean the house and have all organized for our evening routine. Have a fabulous day!!!!
You know I have no clue how to add a link...I don't know if you can click on the Tmz above..it will show you the MTV tour of the casa!!! You know this blogging for me - is always a work in progress!!

- Don't take other children's toys.
- Don't pooh in the pool!
- Don't take children's rafts that don't belong to you.
