Meet Melody The New American Girl

Meet the newest member of the American Girl Be-forever collection, Melody Ellison.  I may be just as excited as Peyton is for this new doll.  Melody is from Detroit in during the 1960’s, a significant time for the civil rights movement.  At 9 years old, Melody uses her voice to inspire change during this time period.  I can’t think of a much better time than now for Melody’s arrival.

Meals can tend to get a little boring.  Every once in a while I’ll surprise Mister with something new.  I switched things up and made Mister a Grill Cheese Blueberry Strangewich using Hellmann’s.  I think we can all agree, anything with Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise has to taste good.  Keep reading for the recipe. hellmanns strangewich 2 Continue Reading

Neiman’s Back to School Trend Event for St. Jude

I recently hosted a Back to School trend event at Neiman Marcus at Lenox Mall to help spread the awareness of St. Jude.  In case you are not familiar with St. Jude, they are research hospital leading the way in the fight to end childhood cancer.  The best part about St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is that families never receive a bill.  Food and housing are also taking care of for families that have children being treated.  This cause is very dear to me because cancer can happen to any of us.  It is very important to me to raise awareness and support for this cause.  I really appreciate Neiman Marcus for their generosity in hosting this event.  It further shows why Neiman Marcus is my favorite place to shop!  Keep reading to find out how you can support St. Jude.
