I don’t know about y’all but I’ve lightly mourned the loss of the great television soap operas I grew up on (you know, the likes of Days of Our Lives and Guiding Light) for a few years now.  So, I was beyond excited to have this little piece of American nostalgia back for consumption by a whole new generation!!  I was a little too young to watch the original Dallas, but I can easily recall the adults in my life discussing what must be the greatest cliff-hanger of all time… Who shot J.R.?

So, the new Dallas – and coincidentally J.R.’s new eyebrows – was must-see t.v. around these parts Wednesday night. In fact, Honey finagled a sneak peek of the premier last week and has been raving about it since (which is totally out of character for him, I assure you.)  So, we tucked the littles into bed and then propped up in our own for a couple of the juiciest, most deliciously entertaining hours we’ve had in a long time.

I very, ever so rarely read a book twice, but if I did… Read More

Atlanta parrotheads united at Lakewood to spend a day tailgating and cocktailing in festive anticipation of Jimmy Buffett taking the stage last night.  It’s a revered and not to be missed tradition in this family – I think I’ve only been absent from two shows in my eighteen years (gasp!) in Atlanta.   With sangria,… Read More
