Happy Earth Day!

I'm doing my part to save the earth by using my super cute new Vera Bradley shopper tote....I'm one step closer to being "Granola".
It's a limited time only deal in stores. $12 and you can look cute while grocery shopping too. They made the bag with a version of the Night Owl design. Hurry to your Vera store and get yours before they run out!

Why is it...

that I always want Chick-fil-A on Sundays??

Chick-fil-A is hands down my favorite fast food restaurant. I love every single thing on the menu...and they even have Diet Dr. Pepper (not that I'm drinking caffeine). I've spent way too much money at Chick-fil-A over the years...from the one on campus at Georgia College and at Valdosta, to the school spirit nights at Mountville where I used to teach. My heart and my money belong to Chick-fil-A.

Since I'm craving a sandwich with extra pickles, waffle fries, a mint chocolate chip milk shake, and a sweet tea....I thought I'd post some fun fact about my favorite place...
Did you know:
- Chick-fil-A has sold more than 209 million sandwiches. Laid end to end, that is more than 13,280 miles of sandwiches. That is enough sandwiches to stretch from Atlanta to Seattle, Washington and back 5 times! Or from Atlanta to Moscow, Russia twice.
- If you stacked the Chick-fil-A sandwiches sold on top of each other they would reach the International Space Station. Chick-fil-A in outer that's a good idea.
- The amount of Chick-fil-A nuggets sold would cover 1/4 of the Earth's circumference.
- You can get 52 combo meals simply by being one of the first 100 individuals at a new chick-fil-a opening. Thats worth over $260- You have to camp out the night before but its a blast.
- Did you know you can order (1) nugget! It’s true- ask next time your there.
- Coupons never expire. If you have an outdated coupon they will still honor it.
-The Chick-fil-A in LaGrange gives you a free sandwich on Mondays if you bring your church bulletin.
- The Chick-fil-a cow never talks. Its part of the rules! There is a moo manifesto!
- You can turn in your kids toy for a free Ice cream- as long as it has not been opened. No matter how old the toy is!
- If you buy 2 kids meals- you get 8 nuggets, 2 small fries, 2 drinks, & 2 ice creams for cheaper then you can buy a 8 nugget combo.

Feeling Preppy

I'm not sure what you would classify my personal style as...Classic? Preppy? Country? Southern?
But spring time makes me happy...and makes me feel preppy.
Some of my new preppy favorites are...
These new croakies for my sunglasses:

And I finally caved and got a car decal:

Check them out at

The Cougar

Before moving to China I didn't watch much T.V., but thanks to an ex-boyfriend and many hours of free time, last year I discovered so many great trashy shows that I LOVE! Highlights of my week include Gossip Girl, The New 90210, and The Hills. So because of my new found love of trashy T.V., I have to admit I was a tiny bit excited to find out about a new show...

Meet "The Cougar"

The Cougar airs tonight on TV Land at 10pm.
Now I'm aware that with a show called The Cougar on such a fabulous station as TV Land, it can only promise to be bad television at its finest. I just hope it lives up to all of my expectations.

A love/hate relationship...

I'm really an oxymoron. I don't like getting in the ocean and I despise sand...but I LOVE the beach. I have the palest skin ever but I love laying out. I hate fish but love eating "seafood".
Here is a tribute to the many things that keeps me loving (more than hating) the beach...

30-A may quite possibly be my favorite road in all of America. It's a 20 mile stretch of road that runs between Panama City Beach and Destin. On 30-A you'll find my favorite place to stay and several of my favorite restaurants and shopping places.
I LOVE Seagrove, I LOVE Seaside, and I LOVE Grayton Beach. It could be because many of my favorite memories from college and the past few years were made there. From Young Life beach trips to Bachelorette parties to just girls weekend getaways. From hanging out with the girls to meeting new boys, whenever I think of the beach I think of some place or some memory made on 30-A.

I live for the few meals a year I get at The Red Bar. I can almost taste the Panne Chicken just thinking about it.

Seriously, I love food and I've tried restaurants all over the world. The Red Bar is in my top 5. If you haven't been. Get in your car and drive there now. The 5 hour drive is worth it.

Bud and Alley's...from the amazing margaritas and cheese dip at The Taco Bar, to the beer and local guys at the roof top bar...part of my heart belongs to Bud and Alley's.

When I venture off of 30-A, though my redneck side pulls me towards Panama City, my sensible side says go towards Destin. My favorite place to shop is the Silver Sands Outlets in Destin. Best J. Crew and Gap deals ever! I also love A.J.'s for dancing and a good time...and Sandestin is amazing too. Try the shrimp at Hammerheads, but stay away from the category 5 hurricane drink ( just trust me on this one). After dinner you can shake your booty at The Village Door or head to Rum Runner's Piano Bar for good drinks and great music.

After Spring Break '09 my love for the beach is far outweighing my hate.
