Welcome to the Sunday Skim your weekly recap of all things style, home, entertaining, family, midlife, community and shopping!
What’s Been Happening. We had a sad and disappointing outcome of the Saints game last weekend. The kids took it harder than anyone. They were really upset that we weren’t going to the Super Bowl but said they are sure we will go next year. Here is hoping. We have moved on this week to finishing up some Disney planning. If you are going to Disney over Mardi Gras keep up with my Instagram because I have a fun giveaway I will be doing while we are there.
Style. Wear Now, Wear Later. If you have been looking at a belt bag now id the time to get one. I have been seeing them in places like the Villa in Mandeville and also at Target. I picked one up last week that was this cute shade of lavender. I am planning on using it Mardi Gras and then for festivals too. This is how I styled it for spring.
Home. It is supposed to be extremely cold this week. There is even a small change of “wintery mix” on Tuesday. Anytime it stays in the 30’s and lower here I like to have something warm and filling on hand. This soup is one of our favorites and if you aren’t doing pasta you can omit that and it is still delicious.
Entertaining. The next time I throw a dinner party or am asked to bring a dish to an event this is what I am doing.
Family. I am mentally preparing myself for school to be closed this week due to the cold weather. I know if you are up north you are rolling your eyes but we are not equipped to deal with snow or ice. I was just looking up ideas just in case they close school and I came across this list.
Midlife. My friend Amanda’s sister-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago. She seemed so young and I just couldn’t believe it. Since then we have had a friend from college die and several others be diagnosed. Be sure that you are doing your own breast exams regularly. If you aren’t sure what you should be doing ask your provider or check out this how to guide.
Community. Fringe and Company is having a Sequin Secondline next weekend! You do not want to miss out on THIS event.
