A Little This, A Little That...

Love these J.Crew Catalog covers from 2007...too bad they don't make them like that anymore.

Speaking of J.Crew...have you seen this photo of Jenna Lyons at the Met Gala this year? What are your thoughts on her look?

This is one of my favorite photos of John and Jacqueline Kennedy. It was taken in September of 1962 when they were watching the America's Cup race on board the the USS Joseph P. Kennedy Jr.

The boys and I arrived at the Gulf Coast this past Sunday and have been making our daily trips over to Shriners Hospital in Tampa all week for my son's Therapy Clinic. He has been doing well and enjoys seeing all the therapists (that he worked with last fall) again this year.

My other 3 boys and I have spent most of our time there each day out at the playground area. The weather has been very pleasant, and it is the perfect place for the boys to run off some of their excess energy. I've taken advantage of the time to catch up on some reading, and have enjoyed all the fresh air, as well. I did snap some photos with my phone to share with you, but haven't been able to get them loaded onto my laptop, unfortunately. However, the Shriners website has a virtual tour of the Tampa location, so if you'd like to see where we've been spending our days this past week, just click here. Once you're on the Virtual Tour page, you can click on any of the departments to see actual photos of the hospital itself. Friday will be our last day there, and then we'll head back home later this coming weekend.

So what have you been up to this week? Do you have any special plans for the weekend? Please do share...I always love to hear from you! :)



  1. i am not crazy about jennas look,she could have done better.
    hopefully you will see improvement for you son after this week,the right therapists make a big difference!
    have a good Mothers Day!!

  2. Hi FFM, It sounds like your time in Tampa is going well, I'm so glad. How nice for your son to have continuity of care, that makes all the difference!
    I too love that picture of the Kennedy's. How perfect is her outfit?
    As far as Jenna'a outfit, hmmm, I don't care for it. Something about the glaring neon pick satin with the faded chambray with its distinct topstitching... I know she likes the "mix" but it would have been much better with just the white french-cuffed shirt that seems to be peeking out from under the denim. Beautiful white shirt, pink satin skirt and the paler pink heels...not that would have been a pretty outfit! Her hair looks gorgeous.
    I hope the rest of your stay in Tampa is happy and successful!

  3. I have to agree with Dani. If Jenna wanted to go "mixed", a classic white mens style shirt would have been much nicer with the pink skirt. And look how lovely she looks without the heavy masculine black framed eye glasses?

    Jackie Kennedy looks perfect. She always looked perfect.

    Have a great rest of your trip.

  4. I'm glad your trip has been successful.
    Your photo of the Kennedys is gorgeous - did they ever take a bad picture? We visited their grave sites in Arlington last month and told my boys about their sad and successful lives.
    I am not a fan of Jenna's look. IMHO it is not pretty or edgy - just predictable and boring.
    Our weekend will (hopefully-as Slugger is sick) consist of lots of gardening, baseball and mother's day festivities.

  5. Don't care for Jenna's look at all.

    I love that photo of the Kennedys too, Jackie was so classic.

    Glad to hear all is going well on your trip! :)

  6. Thank you so much for stopping by, and for all the well wishes ladies! We finally made it home, and I've been spending all my time unpacking, doing laundry, and catching up on all of my other domestic duties. I hope you all have a lovely week! :)
