Girl's Night!

Be sure to schedule a girl's night out soon! It could keep you healthy and make you live longer! Make sure to tell your husband that too on your way out. Seriously though, I just read in a magazine that researchers in England and Australia reviewed studies on being social and they confirmed that it makes you happier, boosts your memory, and can improve recovery from illness or stroke. They said that interacting with a group is important for mental functioning, health, and well-being. So call your girlfriends and plan a night out, quick! Your life depends on it!

Hot Shoe of the Week

I just bought this shoe to wear to with a purple dress to a wedding. It is much cuter in person. It is called Fancywork and you can find it on the Nine West website for $89, but I got mine at DSW. The sizes are limited but they were much cheaper there.

I recently received the jacket below as a gift. Mine is black and it is so cute. It is casual enough to be worn like a hoodie but can be dressed up too. I love it. It was purchased in Israel and I had never heard of S-Wear before, so I went to the website to see what else they had. Their stuff is great! They carry really cute solid basic items, and the quality of the jacket I received is excellent. I am about to order a few more things. Check out their site.


Have you ever thought about adopting a family this holiday season? Money may be tight right now, but if you are able to, it is such a wonderful thing to do. Many families are not even able to buy presents for their children. If you live in Houston, you can sponsor a family through Houston Children's Charity. The form and info are here. If you do not live in Houston, do an internet search to find an organization in your area.

Dum Dum!

No, not you. The candy! My daughter loves Dum Dums. She received many in her trick or treat basket over the weekend. Whenever we open one for her to eat, she always asks "What flavor?" I am always stumped when we get the one that says Mystery Flavor, so I usually just make something up. Mystery Flavor has always freaked me out a little bit. What is it? Some gross left over flavor? Will it taste like chicken fried steak or broccoli? Mystery just sounds like it equals gross. Well today I saw an article on AOL explaining the Mystery Flavor. Apparently the Dum Dum machines run continuously, so when they are changing from one flavor to another there is always a batch that is a mixture of two flavors. That's not so bad! So if you get a Mystery Flavor Dum Dum, it just means it is a mixture of two of their flavors. It won't taste like chicken fried steak, though a couple of my husband's friends would probably like that.
