5. THE HELP
This might just be one of the best books I have ever read and now its premiering on the big screen. I absolutely cannot wait to see this. Not only is it an amazing story about some seriously strong women but the fashion of that era is to die for! Word on the street is possible Oscar Noms!
Here is the Charleston Post & Courier's review.

4. DINNER PARTY
Sunday night Mr. R and I have the pleasure of hosting a little get together for some fabulous friends of ours. A special guest, Miss RLB, is gracing us with her presence from the big ol' land of California. I can't wait to see the Croc and am thinking of trying out these two yummy treats. I will let you know how they turn out.
|Cream Cheese & Pesto Spread with Crackers|
|Fried Green Tomatoes|
Get your fix of bright fall fashion today on Rue La La. The fabulous establishment of Lilly Pulitzer is featured today. Hurry up before today's steals are gone!
2. LET'S CELEBRATE!
I'm headed up to Columbia tomorrow to celebrate a dear friend, MCH, and the impending birth of her BABY GIRL!!!!! MCH and I have been friends since college. We were sorority sisters (Tri Delta) AND roomates! She was also a greeter at mine and Mr. R's wedding. I love she and her hubby, Mr. H, to death and am so happy for their little bundle of joy to arrive.
Here is me and the hot momma breaking it down
at my bachlorette weekend...SO FUN!
Anyday now Mr. R and I are going to be proud aunt and uncle again. Our nieces are our pride and joy and we cannot imagine our lives with out them. They bring SO much joy. This little one is the first not to be born in NC/SC so we hope to get up to Valpo, IN just as soon as she makes her way into the world. We are thinking happy thoughts for our sister in law JBR since she has been on bed rest the past week. My Momma D is up there watching Miss M (our neice) and we wish them as well as Mr. R's bro DSR the ABSOLUTE BEST!!!
