the secret lives of fortunate wives

This past weekend I picked up a new book to read: It tells of the wives living in posh Hunting Hills, Ohio, though the setting reminds me of a couple of other very specific neighborhoods I know outside of Ohio ;) รก la Stepford Wives, Desperate Housewives & "Real Housewives." Among the scandals, trysts and white-collar crime, author Sarah Strohmeyer, paints a vivid picture of the present-day fortunate wife.

preppy in paradise

If your baby is not born with a silver spoon in her mouth, she can at least look like it by popping into the world of Preppiness! Preppy in Paradise will allow your child to do just that. It is an adorable boutique with the most precious embroidered and monogrammed items for children, adults, laptops, pets and your household. Recently, I was browsing their baby items and they have some fabulous finds. I absolutely LOVE the baby scrubs, which can be monogrammed for your future little physician. Collegiate onesies are the perfect way to let your baby show his or her pride for your favorite university, especially as football season progresses towards the Bowl games! There are several t-short designs to choose from, like this little Preppy crocodile... or you can stick with the traditional monogram for your baby. It is never too early for your little one to start wearing her monogram around town. The Preppy in Paradise blog will keep you informed of special events and items that you need to know to keep up in the Preppy world. Be sure to check out all of their other items too. The baby items are just a sneek peak into this world of Preppiness!

webcast wednesday: veteran's day salute

THANK YOU to all who have served in the military through the years. On this Veteran's Day we should be incredibly thankful to those who have made the greatest sacrifice and who continue to risk their lives for the safety of our country. I am very fortunate to have grown up in a military family and to be a WRAMC Brat.

A salute to Colonel Littleton

As the daughter of a retired Army Colonel, it should be no surprise that I would be drawn to a company named Colonel Littleton. Based in my Grandmother's native Tennessee, Col. Littleton is a great taste of Americana. Leather bags, apparel, personal gear, journals and their Alligator collection offer very impressive products. Their customer service is impeccable too! I purchased this precious camp bracelet, personalized with my initials, but there was an issue with the size. Sadly, the small was still too big for my wrist! Thanks to Rebecca, it was quickly corrected and she sent me the new one with a personalized handwritten note thanking me for being a valued customer. Rebecca is fabulous and she has made me a very happy customer! I have told numerous people about Col. Littleton products and their staff. An added personal touch is a mini-moon pie that is included in your order. This really brings back memories for me. As a child, visiting relatives in Bluefield, West Virginia, I was greeted with fresh milk from the farm and a moon pie, and years later, my brother enjoyed mailing me moon pies while I was a TV reporter in Florida. Thank you Rebecca and Colonel Littleton!
