A Blessed Thanksgiving

                    It's been a morning to be thankful for with homemade pumpkin spice bread hot                    from the oven, hot cups of coffee, and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade,                    all of it shared with my family of course. I figured I would list all of the things                    I am thankful for but frankly I find this morning that it's more enjoyable to                    exclaim them throughout my day instead. This morning my husband and I                     have been having our own moments of saying what silly things we are                  thankful for (and we decided that our weenie dog is thankful for the                   dog fight she witnessed down below our balcony.) However I will say this;                    I have a very blessed life despite the hardships of this and the past year and I                    am thankful for the strength to get through it, the strength to persue my dreams,                

what a fabulous show...

  I performed last night at the Spanksgiving Burlesque Festival and I have to admit, I am exhausted. I love this editorial photo because it really captures the spirit  of what a performer feels like after a show. I tend to become half a performer, half a human being dressed in pajamas, wrapped in a fur, still in stockings,  makeup a little melted, selective jewelry off, a few pieces still on.   It's as if the transition from diva to person is a slow one out of necessity. As if a rapid transition might just be too jarring.  
  Oh joy! A burlesque festival! Tonight is the Spanksgiving Burlesque Festival and I am thrilled to be a part of it. There are going to be lots of really fabulous ladies performing tonight. You should come see us! I promise you'll be thankful you did...  The Swan Dive (next door to Barbarella) Austin, TX                                                       Friday at 7:00pm - Saturday at 2:00am

I Want Everything in This Editorial Part {One}

This editorial has everything I could ever want in my fall/winter wardrobe. It's a rather large editorial and as I don't like to post huge posts, it's going to happen in a few parts. A few delicious fashion tastes at a time my darlings!  Loving {red nails, black clutch, belted fluffy atomic age inspired prints, Betty bangs meets veronica lake hair, dark scarlet lips, beaded top, gray purse, swing skirts, delicate watch, thick but light brows} (images found at &  Oh Fashion Model} xo, Jolie 

Veterans - Thank You

To all my veteran friends and family - Thank you for your service to our country. You are true blessings to us all and I will be forever grateful to your precious service. It was an honor to be a Marine Corps wife, to be a part of the military life, simply because I got to see how special our service men and women really are. Thank yo u, thank you, thank you.
