I absolutely love tennis and play a few days each. Lately, I’ve been searching for a new tennis racquet bag, so imagine my delight when I discovered the new tennis inspired wear from Kate Spade New York! With all of these cute new pieces, there will be no chance of a wardrobe double fault whether on or off the court!

I’m searching for a body double, and only serious applicants should apply. I’ve been running in so many directions lately, that my prized multi-tasking skills have been put to the test. Some days, I’ve failed miserably trying to pack so much in. While there wasn’t a lot of down time during our weekend visit to Lake Martin with my family (two little nephews keep you moving), it was a welcome getaway to spend time with the people I love and drink lots of coffee. Of course, all of the forget-me-not happenings of the past week are sprinkled with some please-forget-me moments.
Adam Scott in all of his beauty (and his hole in one!) at Augusta National, errrr I mean, Spending time with J at his favorite place on earth.
Pulling down the steep drive way at the lake to be welcomed by my nephews
Proving aPrincesscan catch the biggest fish of the day
Wearing my DVF wedges (simlar style here)that have been patiently waiting in my closet since January
One hour of solitude in the middle of the lake, on a raft, soaking up the sun
“Camping Out” on the living room floor with my nephews (now, a five year tradition at the lake)
Sweet kisses from baby Jack after his weekend with our dog sitter
An evening walk that turned into a lawn party at our neighbor’s house
Four car naps while John drove to Augusta and the lake – car naps are some of the best sleep I ever get!
Bubba Watson slipping into the green jacket on Sunday evening
Snickers mini ice cream bars
Walking to the restroom after a big meeting to find your two front teeth stained with orange-red lipstick
Habin the skin on my face shed like a snake’s after over-exposure to the sun
Silk Dress + No Slip + Static + Wind = What the Heck was I Thinking Yesterday???
The moment when you realize the thought in your head to tell someone to please just “Shut Up,” is no longer just a thought because your mouth has taken on a life of it’s own and has, in fact, actually done just what you were thinking. I told you my multi-tasking skills have been compromised due to lack of sleep and running like a mad woman.
The “Please-Forget-Me’s” may be slim so far, i must remind you, it’s only Wednesday. This list will undoubtedly grow. Do you have any moments to share?
Meshing two of my favorite things, Burlap + Rhinestones, together for an unexpected tie-back on my dining room chairs. The rhinestone ribbon keeps up with the formal nature of our dining room while the burlap adds a rugged touch. Stuffy entertaining always distresses me, so toning our formal furniture down helps create a more casual atmosphere for a dinner party with friends.
To eat very little meat products, I absolutely LOVE bacon. I also love lettuce and tomatoes, but loathe the traditional BLT Sandwich. Odd, I know. So, a desire to enjoy a BLT inspired this simple twist.
Take mini phylo shells (found in your grocery freezer) and thaw. Mix half a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch Dip mix with 8oz of non-fat sour cream. Place a “dollop” of the ranch dip in the bottom of the shells, top with shredded lettuce, a sliced cherry tomato and crumbled (cooked) bacon. A perfect litle Spring/Summer appetizer.

Today marks the start of my husband’s most loved week of the year – The Master’s Tournament. I must tell you, John is wonderful – he does dishes and laundry, takes baby J out to potty every morning so I don’t have to get out of bed just yet, and knowing my love of fresh flowers, I receive a pretty new bouquet each week. However, this week, he will be completely useless. The tournament will be recorded on our tv, despite the fact we will be in Augusta in just a few days cheering on our favorite golfers. And once we return, he will re-watch the entire tournament as though he’s not seen a bit of it, and I will be doing laundry and dishes.
For John, he and his dad have shared this trip for nearly two decades. Five years ago, marked how much John really loved me when he first started taking me to the tournament. From egg salad sandwiches and pink lemonade to Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson, there’s nothing my husband loves more than his days inside the gates of Augusta National. Really, nothing.
Check back this week for what I’ll be wearing. Unfortunately, no cameras are allowed during the tournament, so you won’t get to see swoon as I follow
Adam Scott John around the course!
