Barely Used Golf Clubs

My husband’s family is in the golf business. E3 sells slightly used clubs for them on ebay.

Here is the link for the current auction. Auctions happen periodically so if you are interested in high quality, barely used clubs, bookmark the seller and check back later for more options.



Advice for the Day – White Oxfords are not always appropriate

I had that feeling today. A little voice telling me not to the wear the white oxford. And I thought, maybe for once I would listen to that small voice whispering me to me. So I put on the old, Lacoste sweater and jeans and went 3+ hours south to a jobsite.

Thankfully, I did. When the downpour came and I was soaked to the bone and the only female on the jobsite, no one could see thru my shirt.

And mud was half way up my legs. Good times.

Mother’s Day Surprise

My schedule changes at the drop of a hat and my sister will be out of town on the day of Mother’s Day. So, this week I emailed her about getting together today for a small, family party for my mom. Of course, it was surprise.

My sister got her out of the house and then was a total chatterbox trying to keep her from coming back. I made all the food and picked up the flowers I had ordered from the Buckhead Whole Foods. We loved the rose topiaries they did for the event. (Best place ever for last minute events.)

Menu Included: Our Salmon Dip with crackers, Sherried Tomato Soup (with some changes), Pesto Chicken Salad with Arugula, Strawberry Cheesecake Bars and Champagne.

Needless to say, I saved up all week so that I could eat what I want and be able to drink. (Since I can’t really drink anymore.)

My mother LOVED it and I have to say I was very pleased with myself. Especially since it was all last minute.

(Not all the recipes are pictured)

What I am Wearing Today – Nanette Lepore

This jacket is one of my favorite purchases for Spring 2008. A Nanette Lepore jacket. I LOVE IT!

Orange really isn’t my color, but hot pink is.

Totally had a sales girl from Saks hunt it down for me. I was on a mission since everywhere online was down to a size 2. And a 2 I am not. :(

I am wearing it with a brown tank underneath, 7 For All Mankind Jeans and brown slingbacks.

(It stays together better in real life. So don’t think it is to small.)

Here is My Choice

Let’s Vote – Chanel Hardware Colors

If you were getting the gift of a Chanel tote for your birthday what color hardware would you choose?

Gold? Or silver?

The only hardware is the double C’s and clasp.

There is no chain.

The color of the leather is black.

Gossip Girl – Sour Cherry by The Kills

Here is the song playing in the OMFG promo for Gossip Girl.

I have been obsessed with it.

Quote: Bret Michaels on his hair

My hair is combined of my hair and the finest extensions Europe has to offer. I do the show without it on all the time and they wont film me. They are like, “Put your bandanna back on. It is your image.” It is my signature thing.

Recommendations – Jefferson Hotel

I have been traveling again. As you know, I work with my mother and she was on the trip too. We had big plans of what we were going to get done. Well, someone else had different ideas.

I have been flying back and forth to Richmond, VA for a project that is in the surrounding area. Then in July I will start a new, different one.

The Jefferson Hotel
, where we normally stay, really came thru for us when my Mom became violently ill with food poisoning.

1. Concierge had valet waiting with a wheelchair and coverings to get her into the hotel.
2. Housekeeping washed her pants for free in the middle of the night. And returned them at 12:30 am.
3. Bellhop let me into the gift shop at 12 am to buy every medicine they had. Including the $8 bottle of Pepto-Bismol.
4. Called in a car cleaning service early this morning to detail the rental car so I could go to my jobsite.
5. No less than 5 staffers wanted to know if she was OK and feeling better.

I highly recommend this hotel and the fabulous staff who helped us thru the worst business trip ever.

Conversations: Oops! Wrong Email Address.

As you know, I am on a complete health kick/life turn around. It is going rather well actually. ANYWAY, I was messing around last week on the someecards website and sending cards I found funny to my husband.

If you have used the site you know you have to type in the email address everytime you send a card.

I sent this card out to someone I thought was my husband.


Today I got and email from a gentleman of the same name as my husband. This is what it said.

i love the cocktail you are proposing, although i think you hit the wrong email address.

unless you’re in the pittsburgh area and feel like sharing your mini bar and “stash”, in which case i feel that i may be able to alter my “wrong email address” perspective.

I had typed the address as gmail.com instead of mac.com.

Just thought I would share. :)
