Oh Sookie, Sookie

Alexander McQueen

So in the past month or so my boyfriend and I have become majorly obsessed with True Blood.  Night after night we spend hours at my parents house viewing as much as we can on OnDemand trying to catch up to the third season. Currently we are three episodes away from the end of season 2 and I find myself daydreaming about what is going to happen next to Sookie,Vampire Bill, and of course my favorite Vampire Eric. Although it is ridiculous I think my boyfriend may be a little jealous of my affection for Vampire Eric. Last year, I actually was standing right next to Alexander Skarsgard getting frozen yogurt. He was filming a movie in my town, and only after we left did my boyfriend tell me who he was. I didn't watch True Blood then and I just remember him being very tall. I'd give anything to relive that day knowing what I do now.

All that aside Anna Paquin has really turned out in some show stoppers this past year. I think the Emmys are coming up and I can't wait to see what she will dazzle in next!

It's The Magical Mystery Kind

A couple months ago my friends, Nicole, Melissa, and I took a little road trip to the land of Elvis, blues, and BBQ, to see our friend Hannah and to attend an Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros show. The show was amazing and we loved spending time with Hannah, who is a cupcake baking, art school graduate, and she also happens to own a coveted collection of Domino magazines, which she kindly let me borrow. Need less to say it was a good time with great music and an array of delicious food including: sweet pork nachos,crispy fried chicken, blueberry strussel muffins, bbq sandwiches, creamy chai tea sprinkled with nutmeg, and the best waffles ever! While we ate a ton, we didn't get to do much shopping due to a lack of time, but I did manage to pick up a few soft striped tees and I finally found a bowler hat that met my liking after searching for months. We hope to go back soon, and next time we will make time to hit up all of the small town antique stores along the drive. Can you imagine all the treasures we could find!

-Melissa and Hannah
-The Beauty Shop, where Priscilla Presley once got her hair done, is now a delicious restaurant. I love how they still use the hair dryer chairs mixed with distressed Louis chairs.
-If you haven't heard Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, please look them up, because you are in for a treat. The band was so grateful for the fans and after the show they did an impromptu  acoustic gig outside the venue until the police were called.
- Me admiring this fan who got the lead singer, Alex, to kiss her on the lips twice!
-We got to take a picture with Alex!!!! I hope he didn't notice creepy me stroking his hand.
-On our last night we went to this beautiful old Victorian house that has been re birthed into this insane bar decked out with beautiful vintage furniture, incredible light fixtures, blown up black and white photos of celebrities from the 60's and 70's and cow hide rugs scattered over dark hard wood floors. It really was the epitome of my dream house! 
-One of my best girls ,Nicole, and I taking a break from checking out the Lady Gaga look alike celebrating her birthday at Molly Fontaines. Gaga was kind enough to offer us some of her birthday cupcakes.

My Rocks Have Stains

Aren't these beauties from Marni just exquisite! I was especially drawn to them, because the jewels reminded me of my rock collection I had when I was a little girl. I have always been a fan of rocks and crystals and recently, on a trip to Arkansas, I revisited my childhood hobby and I bought a few fist sized crystals that I have scattered throughout the house as shiny knickknacks. Whether it is on my wrist or my book shelf I always like to be surrounded by sparkles!
