Award Season!

First the Grammys, next the Oscars and me. I have been given an award by the beautiful, charming and oh so stylish Mimi at aesthetic lounge. She is a New Yorker, jewelry designer, and fabulous blogger. I especially love her Friday posts, fun finds friday. You must check her out and add her to your daily reads.
So I am supposed to tell some thing new about myself , here we go.....

My husband is surprising me with a trip in May. I won't know where I am going until I get to the airport. He is even packing for me (yikes) I think we might be going to some tropical island....or Paris!!

My sister has been trying, unsuccessfully, to have a baby for years. This summer she will finally go to Korea and adopt her sweet baby boy. I am more excited for her than words can describe!!
I was on a date with another guy when I met my hubby.... everything worked out they way it should!!About 8 years ago I had an online business with a friend. When she moved overseas to teach she had great access to children's smocked dresses. We launched a website ( and supplied dresses to boutiques in STL. It was a great side business and I am sad we let it go. If we would of stuck it out, it could of been a great business. The one good thing, I have all the inventory in my house!!

Well, there you have it...

Now I tag the following lovely ladies..
