Editor’s note: Today I am in a dress from J.Crew and shoes from Nine West.
Happy Monday!! Well... it is definitely August in Texas. This is the kind of heat that scares off people from living here. But it is supposed to break on Wednesday and be a cool 96 degrees..... don't think we will be bringing out the sweaters but at least my car wont read 126 like it did yesterday!!!!! I needed to run more errands after my facial on Saturday at 3:30.... but I could not bear getting in and out of the hot car. I enjoyed being in the pool both days this weekend..... but I must say ( and I hope I am not offending anyone!) that the 20 and 30 year old girls at the pool were driving me crazy with their conversations. They used the word “like” about every third word. Every single one of them!!! If they could hear a tape recording of their conversations they would hear how obnoxious it is. But I did not take them to raise.... and my kids barely use that word.... Thank God!!!! Harrison went on a bachelor’s party trip to Miami to celebrate one of his best friends from LSU. When I asked him today about the weekend... he said he had a blast but his body and wallet were both hurting. He told me what they spent on “bottle service” both nights in clubs........OMG!!! I could buy 7 pairs of Valentino shoes ( I compare everything to the cost of shoes!) Blow my hair back!!! At least they had fun. I adore his friends from LSU......I truly think they will remain friends forever. Harrison is saving for an engagement ring so any money he spends right now hurts. At least he does not blow every dime he makes!!!! I have always been conservative in my spending... I am proud I passed that along. I returned to eating lettuce this weekend and it did not send my system into orbit......which makes me so happy! I have always been like a rabbit eating a lot of greens. This is the week that so much happens at my Arlington job..... draperies starting to install, carpet going in, and wall paper hopefully getting near to finished. The custom banquette ( if you read my blog often you know I have a thing for banquettes!!!!) goes in this week and the custom stone top table will get placed in front. I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!!
Here are my Instagram favorites from last week. Enjoy and have a super Monday. Remember....it is the day full of possibilities!!!!!
