Glasses as a Fashion Accessory!

Firmoo #F037 Square Frame Glasses

I am a nerd at heart.  I work from home, most of the time, rocking my glasses and my dorky sweaters.  I have spent this past week in Washington DC doing five days of meetings and work functions, for my during-the-week contracting job.  Believe it or not, I have been rocking dresses and heels {Gasp! Yes,…

Celebrate Southern: My New Mantel Project(s)

Virginia Barn

So, big news.  We are breaking ground in 2015!  I haven’t really said much about the fact that my hubby and I are going to be custom building our dream home next year — simply because I do not want to jinx it.  We still have a long way to go before we get to…

Happy Saturday y’all, even though it feels like a Sunday in Suz-World.  I spent my Thursday evening working a client’s wedding rehearsal and then all day yesterday setting up, orchestrating, and then breaking down their wedding.  I got home around midnight only to take a muscle relaxer with a glass of wine, kiss my husband…

Giveaway: Who loves Amazon?

Forget this weekend… where in the world did last week go?  Honestly, my last few weeks have been quite the blur.  Between working three jobs, handling all sorts of unnecessary drama, and then transferring my blog from blogger to wordpress (still a work in progress) thank God for my to-do list!  I am so grateful…

Friday Faves including my BFF.

I’m slightly hesitant to even do this post today, but after spending the week in transition (did you notice the new look??) I feel like I can timidly venture back out into Blogland.  While I want to sit here and tell you all about my new space that is casually sneaking into the wonderful world wide…

Friday Dance Party: T.Swift vs The M.Train.

Pour the Champs!  It’s Friday Y’all!    Unfortunately I didn’t make it through the week in one piece… I have strained the muscles in my right bicep, as well as the tendons surrounding my elbow.  Basically my arm won’t go beyond a 90 degree angle… So while typing is actually possible, it’s not comfortable.  I could…
