Red Shoes

There is nothing that bespeaks independence and sassiness like a pair of red shoes, and every woman should own at least one pair.

My mother always had several, and when she gave me my first pair of sylish red silk high heels, I became a beliver in the power of red shoes. But, according to Mama, there are rules that accompany the wearing of red shoes. To this day, I’ve never broken one of them. Find out my mom’s red shoe regs at:

July 20th is Fortune Cookie Day. The best thing about this obscure holiday is that even if the slip of paper inside your cookie tells you that you’re ugly or that you stink like a goat, you still get to enjoy the scrumptious cookie!

Shark Week

I shudder every time I think about swimming in ocean water where there might be a shark. So Shark Week is not something I celebrate.

My fear of sharks all started when I was 8 years old and on vacation in Freeport, Texas, with my grandparents. I’m gonna tell you all about it at:

And, if you are not as wimpy as me, enjoy Shark Week.

Make Some Waves

Are you a bikini beach babe?

I once was, sorta. Right now I’m stuck in beach babe purgatory as I pack for our upcoming trip to Vieques, Puerto Rico. Beach babe purgatory involves being stuck somewhere between a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model and a moo-moo mama that calls folks to dinner by blowing tinto a conch shell. If you can relate, check out my plan to bring back beach babe-ness no matter how old you are at:
