Fabulous Things Friday

Fabulous Things Friday~ Luck Of The Irish Edition

It's been a while since I posted a Fab Things article, but now that we are temporarily settled in St. Louis, I have more time to spend writing. Most of us will spend this weekend celebrating St. Patrick's Day. Traditionally, across the United States we spend our day attending the local parade and watching the local river turn shamrock green. Socially we will celebrate the Irish/American culture by wearing green, so that we do not get pinched, dine on corned beef and cabbage as well as sipping pints of green beer. I love reading Irish blessings and toasts. Here is one of my favorite's: "May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light, may good luck pursue you each morning and night."

How will you be celebrating St. Patrick's Day? Do you have an Irish blessing or toast to share?

Hope you all have a great Friday, now get the wrap up on a few fabulous things from this week...

Fabulous Things Friday~ Lights, Camera, Fashion Edition

This past week was probably one of the busiest of the year for fashion lovers. There were so many events happening, it was hard to keep them straight! New York Fashion week was in full swing, then pile on the BAFTA's and the Grammy Awards. Speaking of the Grammy's, how gorgeous did Rihanna look in that stunning Alaia dress? Now that NYFW is over, we head across the pond to London for London Fashion Week, and soon the Oscars will be here. My weekend will be spent watching and reviewing the looks from the runways of London. What are your weekend plans?

Fabulous Things Friday~ Much Love for February Edition

I have nothing but love for the month of February. It's my favorite month of the year, but I am biased because my birthday falls in the month of February. Besides the obvious holidays, Groundhog Day, Valentines Day and Presidents Day noted on the calendar, February brings a celebration of Black History and awareness to Heart Disease. It's also National Chocolate Lovers Month, International Friend Month and Cat Health Month. The second week of February is Flirting Week, Celebration of Love Week and Sexual Responsibility Week. Additionally it's Jello Week, which I find all too coincidental. Did you know that, February is the most misspelled of all the months?

Fabulous Things Friday~ Not So Winter Blues Edition

What are your plans for the weekend? Not so excitedly, I can say that I think my weekend will consist of finishing moving items to storage and painting. Today we received two inches of snow, I love snow. I know, most people think I am crazy, but snow does not give me the "winter blues". Do you get the winter blues? If yes, how do you cure them? 

Being from northern Indiana originally, where we get mostly lake effect snow, I personally can appreciate the snow for all its beauty and wonder. It reminds me of when I used to go sledding with my brothers, then come in from our cold outdoor adventure and drink hot cocoa with marshmallows. I guess for me, snow sparks a certain nostalgia of fond childhood memories. Hope you all have a great Friday, now get the wrap up on a few fabulous things from this week...

Fabulous Things Friday~ It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas Edition

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas! Its been a while since I have posted a Fabulous Things Friday post, but I promise I will be getting back on track. What are your plans for the weekend and more specifically how will you be celebrating Christmas? Things seem a bit more "Christmasy" here in the Midwest since we were hit with some snow late yesterday, not too much, but enough to put you in a more festive mood. My weekend plans are all over the place, last minute shopping, gathering with old friends for the Indianapolis Colts game on Sunday and continuing to clean and prep the house to be ready to sell. Hope you all have a great Friday, now get the wrap up on a few fabulous things from this week...

Fabulous Things Friday~ Shaken Not Stirred Edition

What are your plans for the weekend? My weekend consists of taking our dog's to the groomer, prepping for our garage/moving sale next weekend and possibly going to see the new James Bond flick, Skyfall. I love the James Bond franchise, its so glamorous, mysterious and thrilling all at the same time. I think Daniel Craig is one of the best actors that has played the character of Bond. Even fellow Bond actor, Roger Moore said Craig was the best James Bond ever. I wonder if this will be Craig's last film in the series or if he has more 007 adventures ahead of him? Who do you think would make a great James Bond? I've often thought Eric Bana, Christian Bale and possibly Jude Law would be fitting choices for the role of the suave English spy. Hope you all have a great Friday, now get the wrap up on a few fabulous things from this week...

Fabulous Things Friday~ I'm Moving Out Edition

What are your plans for the weekend? My plans consist of more cleaning and organizing as we prep to put our house on the market to sell. My husband accepted a new job that will take us to a brand new city and we couldn't be more excited for this adventure! I am hoping to squeeze some fun in this weekend if we can, but there is so much to be done before we move completely.
