Interest in Pinterest

I use Pinterest...a lot. It's still pretty *exclusive* in the sense that you have to be a member to use it, and you have to be invited to be a member. I waited and waited and GOT my invite and am so thrilled! I thought I'd do a giveaway to celebrate! And, the winner will receive: An invitation to join Pinterest! Just make sure you are a follower of City Southern and leave me a comment about why you want to join Pinterest.
Easy Peasy :)

Winner will be announced June 6!

Memorial Day Weekend!

Memorial Day Weekend.
The unofficial Summer kick-off!
The beginning of a season filled with weddings, birthdays, travel, projects, and absolutely zero free time!! {fail} means warm weather.
And a tan.
And icy cold adult beverages.
And grilling out.
And sundresses.
And an end to pollen season!

And let us not forget why we have a holiday to celebrate. Thank you to all the men and women who serve. May we never forget what they do for us, or what they are fighting for. May we always remember those we've lost in battle. May we pray to someday lose no more.

"We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies."
- Moina Michaels -

Hope everyone has a FUN, FABULOUS, and SAFE Memorial Day Weekend!!

Patience... something I am running out of.

I will refrain from elaborating on this topic for the time being.

More Ideas than Time

Wordy Wednesday seems much more appropriate when I {STILL} have NO voice!!

And this little poster seems appropriate because it sorta sums up how I feel at the moment...

Blog ideas, work initiatives, to-do lists, starting new projects, finishing old projects, posting about completed projects, ideas for new projects, clients and more projects, weddings and travel no-free-weekends-until September! {pause for a breath} Spring Cleaning, getting organized, starting another blog, *finances*...
yadda, yadda, yadda.

A Little and A Lot

{A little busy and a LOT under the weather.}

A is patiently waiting to see pictures from her bridal shower a couple weekends back. I am working on a couple posts to share all the details {between feverish naps}... {It's a struggle}. But, I couldn't resist posting a glimpse AND bragging about Wade Chi and his wonderful photography. Well, I'll save the bragging for later but I have to give him all the credit...take a look and judge for yourself!

{This is Wade /\ go check out his blog}

A Prayer for You

"Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.
May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen."

More Fun with Facial Hair

Whoops! Blogger was mean yesterday and wouldn't let me post!! Oh well - I'm off to VA Tech's Graduation {Way to go, Wes!!!}, then to Norfolk since the fleet is coming in. I'll get to spend some time with my other-in-laws {yay! I don't get to see them very!}, celebrate BIL's Birthday and a Belated Mothers' Day with Mom-in-Law and Grandma-In-Law, celebrate Uncle-in-Law's return home and RETIREMENT from the Navy...all in three days. I'm tired already!!

But before I go...a little more fun with facial hair on the countdown to Moustache-tastic-BIL's Birthday!!

{To BUY these wonderful and weird things...check out Urban Outfitters, Perpetual Kid, and Etsy}

BIL's Moustache Week!

Sunday is the birthday of My Brother-In-Law {BIL}. BIL has a moustache. I'm not just talking about some plain ol' boring moustache. I mean a serious, twisty-end, soon-to-be-handlebar-ish, he now carries a comb with him everywhere, MOUSTACHE. So, in honor of his birthday, this whole week will be dedicated to some fun with facial hair! Stay tuned for more, but for now...

{Haha, Get it?!?}

Tablescape Tuesday: Pink Posies

I've got Bridal Shower on the brain! A's pink and champagne gold wedding is around the corner and the SHOWER that I am hostessing {at her Mom's house} is this Saturday! I'm not going to spill the beans about colors and decor choices just yet, but here's a lovely wedding tablescape in pink and champagne hues that makes me think of A.
