Excessive Heat warning goes into effect at noon today and runs through the weekend.    Let’s do everything to keep our St. Louis friends and neighbor’s safe this week. Here is a wonderful site from the National Weather Service on all things heat safety! Remember, car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in just a matter of minutes so LOOK BEFORE YOU ...

I was so glad these were in my car….

I always keep an extra pair of flip flops in the car.   Usually to kick off much hated heels at the (close to) end of the day,  but this morning they came in really handy: A strap on my sandals broke on the way to work this morning, and without these, I would have had a serious emergency! Wearing them ... Read More »

Is it already mid-summer?

I made a pledge this year that I would do something summery before summer is over!    So far: I have been to Ted Drewes, I have gone to a Cards game, and I did see fireworks!    I feel my list is lacking so I am going to try to remedy that this weekend.   Tonight is Jimmy Buffett at Hollywood Casino ...

Food and Fireworks!

FOOD!   Seriously, why am I such a foodie?   Such a great time of year for fun fair food, food trucks, and so many great outdoor events! On top of that I just found out that Billy Goat Chip co has made a new Sugarfire Chip!   This local combination is my new summer obsession! Speaking of food!   Flavored Nation!!!   This is ...

Fireworks, the 4th of July and I heart STL

Haven’t pledged my love to STL lately so here is my song.    Heading into one of my favorite holiday weekends, I am SO excited for all the festivities.   So many places to see fireworks (and I LOVE fireworks).    I may just go see fireworks every night. RFT put together a GREAT list of places to view. It’s ... Read More »

Monday with a long weekend ahead…

I don’t mind a Monday when a long weekend is on the way! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and had a chance to enjoy the beautiful St. Louis weather!   I had a great time at Suntrup Ford on Saturday, and I really really wanted this guy to follow me home. You know I am a fanatic, but last ... Read More »

Father’s Day and Game of Thrones Night

Totally unlike me, but I actually accomplished quite a bit over the weekend!   I am working on turning an old cabinet and unused corner into a coffee bar.   I have ALWAYS wanted a designated space just for coffee, but small living sometimes does not allow for extra space.    Will post pics when I am finished, I am excited ...

Pig and Swig and more for the weekend…

Muse was AMAZING! First time also seeing 30 Seconds to Mars and I have to say they put on a GREAT show as well. I had an awesome time. Here are some other things I thought I would share for today: City Hall will host a gun lock giveaway to help promote gun safety. The June 21 event runs from 10 ... Read More »

Muse and more.

I will be taking in my first (unofficial) summer show of 2017 tonight at Hollywood Casino Amphitheater for Muse and 30 Seconds to Mars!    This will be my first time seeing Muse, and well Jared Leto.   Enough said. Blood donations are always especially crucial during the summer months.    The Cardinals and the Red Cross team up every year for a ... Read More »
