Since we welcomed Cookie into our lives just two short years ago, we’ve made a conscious effort to, at least once a month, take each little on a special outing with both Mommy and Daddy. Now, Cookie’s one on one time usually ends up being a shopping excursion or happy hour at the club, but at age two he is just as pleased as punch to have the attention of both of us at the same time. At age five, John’s one on one time is generally much more fantastic – something that would be hard to do with little brother tagging along. So, yesterday Honey and I treated the PCP to a visit to the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Baily Circus.
From the moment the ring master, in his booming voice, began the show with “Ladies and gentlemen, children of all ages…” to the spectacular grand finale parade, John sat on the edge of his seat, mesmerized with the entire three ring show. And Honey and I, being two of those children of all ages that enjoy the spectacle of a circus, particularly enjoyed this year’s theme, Barnum’s FUNundrum, that featured loads of bewildering side-show type acts.
While John’s favorite act was the Bionic Brothers, two amazingly acrobatic contortionist brothers, each and every time I watch this greatest show on earth, I can’t help but be awe stuck by the talented pack of pachyderms.
So went a lovely and very special afternoon with our biggest little. And since it wouldn’t be a circus without wholesome snacks, after dining on blue cheese chips and cheesy fries, the only conundrum we faced at the FUNndrum was which sugary treat to try.
With that, Honey is on holiday today, the littles will be up soon and I’m off to sneak a cup of Paris tea before all craziness begins.
Many moons ago, as good little girls often do, I did a brief stint as a Brownie. You know, Savannah being the Girl Scout capitol of the world, everyone that was anyone had a daughter dressed in brown (or blue or green depending.) Well, it is likely not a shocking surprise that I was a… Read More
Oh, yes!!! I DO just adore BHLDN (pronounced beholden), the brand spanking new bridal line by Anthropologie. Everything is just exquisite. And quite unique. I am just ga-ga over this tulle and organza confection. So very elegant and classic, but unique enough to be remembered. This one has my name written all over it. Tulle,… Read More
I have been in a pillow pickle over what to do to finish out my basement banquette. It obviously needs something more. And I believe that something more is just about a million pillows. Pillows that add a little frou-frou luxe and a little classic couture to what is otherwise, in it’s current state, a… Read More
Last night was Bunco night in my neck of the woods. In our usual manner, new friend A swung by for me, my wine and my pimento cheese dip and we made our way to this once a month, festive night out full of dice, free-flowing drinks, mouth-watering eats and highly entertaining neighbor ladies. Also… Read More
Yesterday we laid to rest Honey’s Uncle R, lost too soon at the young age of sixty-three. A soft-spoken, kind and gentle man, it hurts my heart that I didn’t know more of him. While Uncle R had neither a wife nor children to say a last farewell, he certainly would have smiled at the… Read More
We looooove the holidays around here. And the holiday of love is just no exception. After celebrating with a day full of heart shaped meals for the littles, a party at school and cupcake Valentines for friends, Valentine’s Day culminated with a romantic dinner for two at home. Here’s a roundup of our goings and… Read More
