Take a Hike!

I like to be different, but sometimes I’m different because I just didn’t listen or read things all the way through! Story of my life!

Sunshine, Blue Lights and a little Rock ‘n Roll

Girls’ weekend!  The sun was shining, the road was clear and we were heading to L’Auberge Du Lac Casino to see Daughtry! Wait!

I have bunions and when I find just the right shoes, I snatch them up! I’ve learned to choose comfort over style. The turning point for me was… Continue reading Just the Right Shoes

Snowflakes

We woke up to a winter wonderland Friday morning! This doesn’t happen often in Louisiana! No school for the parish and my Facebook feed was jam packed with pictures and video of “sneaux day”! The sun came out at lunchtime, but there were still a few Frosty the snowmen still standing at the end of the… Continue reading Snowflakes
