What In The World Have I Been Doing?

14 Nov

Well, I will tell ya…

I have been extremely busy scoping out treasures for my Etsy shop lately, drove an hour and a half yesterday towards Atlanta for a huge estate sale, came back with some excellent stuff!



I really haven’t been eating anything too tasty recently. I did however try some moonshine {only in the South} at a restaurant, which was weird, but enjoyable and…NO…I did not get drunk-fied and no I will not be constructing a homemade still on my property anytime soon, but I’d certainly drink it again if it becomes available.

I ran/walked my first Run or Dye 5K and didn’t “dye”! Thas good.


I scored a Carol Bennett Liberty House Dress at the Goodwill…


I got some cute jewelry at Rue 21 for 2 bucks a piece.

And last but not least, I have been wearing this hat on my head every night while I sleep! What…its warm. My husband says I look like the guy from Fat Albert that says Obee Kaybee or a jelly fish. In fact, I am wearing this hat as we

So that about sums it up. Hope you have been having as much fun as I am lately. If not, start now.



4Rivers Smokehouse: Winter Garden

13 Apr

4Rivers Smokehouse is a brand new restaurant that opened last week in Winter Garden FL that we had heard rave reviews about. This is a 2-chain restaurant owned by a Floridian turned Texan, John Rivers, he stepped out of 20 years in corporate America to pursue his dream of opening a traditional Texas smokehouse in Florida as a platform to introduce his 18-hour, slow-smoked Angus brisket in what was otherwise considered a pork dominated market.

When pulling up to the restaurant the first thing we noticed was that the line literally was wrapped around the outside of the building.  One the causes of this long line is that they have cafeteria style ordering where you order each item as you go down the line. Well, even though the line was long,  it didn’t take more than 20 to 25 minutes until we were seated and ready to chow down!

I ordered the brisket sandwich with fried okra and french fries and cornbread. I had a hard time deciding which sides to get as everything looked delicious. My husband got fried pickles and macaroni and cheese which I also sampled.  This is a restaurant that I would definitely come to again. The brisket was amazing and all the sides were tasty.

The restaurant had a good feel to it with its selection of nostalgic sodas and it’s copper sinks to wash your grubby hands in after pigging out (pun intended)! You’ll certainly leave with a major sugar high from their awesome dessert counter. We got a red velvet cup cake and a carrot cake cupcake. The red velvet was groovy while the carrot cake was something that I wouldn’t walk a mile for, but still good.

Overall this restaurants friendly staff mixed with good BBQ is a place that you can probably count on to be consistently good and reasonably priced!

Secret tip: if your short on time, call in your order on the way over and then pick it up at the to go window and have a seat at any of the picnic tables to enjoy there.

Thumbs up to 4rivers and it’s Angus! (don’t enjoy saying that word, maybe I’ll call it Frangus)
