Post image for Katherine Webb and Quarterback AJ McCarron Engaged

Congratulations to former University of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron and his former Miss Alabama USA girlfriend, now fiancée, Katherine Webb on their engagement!  According to Katherine's tweet, AJ designed the ring himself.       If you don't know the story of Katherine and AJ, let me give you a brief rundown.  AJ played football for the University of Alabama.  Katherine graduated from Auburn University.  Alabama and Auburn are long-time rivals (one of the best rivalries in sports history).  Katherine gained notoriety during the 2013 BCS National Championship Game in which the cameras panned to Katherine and announcer Brent Musburger gushed about how beautiful she is.  Katherine's Twitter followers jumped from Read More ...

I've seen The Best Man probably a few hundred times.  I first owned the movie on VHS and now have it on DVD (I'm quite certain that I wore the VHS tape out).  So, when I was contacted about hosting a Girls Night Out to see an advance screening of The Best Man Holiday, I think my reply email went something like this: YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   Yeah, I was that excited.  You see, to me, Jordan, Harper, Lance, Murch, Quentin, Robin, Mia, Shelby, and Candy are like old friends that I haven't seen in years and this would be like a reunion.  And it turns out that this is exactly what The Read More ...

Let me clear this up real quick.  My blues have nothing to do with being sad.  In fact, the "blues" that I have are making me very happy right now.  You see, there are a few things that I'm currently obsessed with: gold, frames, and blue.  Now, pink will always be my favorite color, but right now I can't seem get enough of the color blue.  Cobalt is my favorite blue at the moment, but honestly, I'm also loving other shades of blue, like navy, for fall and winter.  Here's a look at my blue obsession: You can't really tell from this photo, but this is a navy corduroy skirt Read More ...

This past weekend, Beyonce, Queen Bey, Mrs. Carter came to Charlotte and shut it down.  Not only was she here, but my best friend since the 2nd grade (we met in Girl Scouts) also came to town from Birmingham for the big concert.  We bought our tickets months ago during the presale and thought that this weekend would never arrive.  But it did.  And it did not disappoint.  Let's start from the beginning…   Friday Night Alexia and her friend Danielle (who was also coming to Charlotte to see Beyonce with her friend) arrived late Friday night.  All four of us ended up having a late night dinner at Midnight Diner Read More ...
