How do you spend your Saturdays?
Shopping and lunching! Usually on a Saturday you will find me either at Southlake Town Center in Southlake or Northpark in Dallas. And sometimes I'm on a mission to discover a new boutique in town to explore. I'm not always buying, just looking (my husband doesn't "buy" this line!) but I love wandering around looking at all the pretty things. I will notice the new trends that are out and try to find the best bargains. I will spend the day with my 29-year old daughter, friends or all by myself (my husband Terry equates shopping to torture, so he's out!). Stopping for lunch is a necessity (nourishment and hydration is vital to keep up the pace), plus it's a great time to visit and gossip. After splitting a sandwich or sharing a salad, then we're ready to hit the stores again. Shopping was recently mentioned on our local news channel as an activity that is "good for your health!" It's shown to relieve stress and depression by getting people out of their house, walking and socializing with others. I say "Amen" to that and ask . . . "Anyone up for a shopping-trip this Saturday?"
Who would play you in a movie about your life?
Julia Roberts . . . I love her and really just want to be her! I especially love her hair. My hair is thick, coarse and frizzes up at the least bit of humidity in the air. Julia's hair is soft, long and flowing!
Favorite adult beverage.
It's a toss-up between a Lemon Drop Martini (perfect blend of sweet and sour) and Champagne (it's celebration time!).
Last clothing item you purchased.
On my last shopping expedition I was on the hunt for one of the new hot summer trends; the Maxi Dress. I had several requirements: #1- It had to be flattering (not a Moo-Moo Dress) #2- It had to be tropical with bright colors, and #3- It had to be light-weight and cool. I had my job cut out for me! After going to my usual favorite stores (Banana Republic, Nordstrom's and Ann Taylor/Ann Taylor Loft), I hit the jackpot at Anthropologie and found the perfect Maxi Dress!
My absolute favorite meal is Thanksgiving! Turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce and all the fixin's that go along. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. I could do Thanksgiving every week and in fact we almost do! Here is how you too can have "Thanksgiving", any day, in a matter minutes! Purchase a fully cooked, rotisserie turkey breast at your favorite grocery store (mine is Market Street in Colleyville, Texas). Then pick up a box of Stovetop Cornbread Dressing, jar of turkey gravy, can of Ocean Spray Cranberry Sauce, frozen whole green beans with sliced almonds and a package of rolls. Done!
