beauty? I guess that’s me, but really only for creative name purposes. the butcher? that’s my handsome real life butcher hubby. together we live in a little town in central florida. I have decided to start blogging about our life. this will mainly include my love of cooking, fashion (plus size fashion mind you, big girls gotta dress too! sort of appropriate how plus size came after cooking…anyway back to the blog) crafts (I LEEERRRRVE glitter and make greeting cards & wedding invites check out http://www.paperlaundry.etsy.com), interior design, and all things mid century. heres some things you should know about me; 1. I don’t always use proper spelling, punctuation, or grammar. I try, but it doesn’t always happen. and I don’t like capital letters, maybe its due to an early love of e.e. Cummings? anyway, get over it. b) I have two beautiful little nieces named mahal and Geneva who you will likely see lots of pictures of as well as our adorable pygmy lab (not really but shes a really tiny full grown black lab that was a rescue so when people ask what she is we say pygmy lab, its more fun than the real story) named raven. 3. I tend to start things and not finish them. this is something I do not like about myself and I’m working on it so hopefully this blog will be a good outlet for me to work on accountability, if anyone out there even really cares. guess we’ll have to wait and see….

  1. Hey Lori! It’s Darlene (Berto’s aunt) from Miami. I live in North Carolina now. Remember “Stop Laughing At Me”?!? I totally expected you to have a blog! I will def put you on my bookmark bar! So glad I found you 🙂

    • hi! so nice to hear from you! I just found a picture of you the other day and would’ve had no idea what you were doing in it if my album caption hadn’t said, “Darlene doing her Other Sister impression”! What part of North Carolina? I live in Florida now believe it or not!

  2. Haha love those memories! I’m in Fayetteville, NC now, about 3 hours from Jackie and Ben. So if you ever wanna come up or stop on your way to somewhere else, you’re always welcome!

  4. Beauty, I have a question; and need your advise and expertise. We painted one wall in our kitchen and want to write with chalk Coffee Bar… Espresso… Tea… And so on. But I’m afraid the chalk will rub off or if my little babe touches it it’ll rub right off. Is there a seal I can out over the chalk? Is there a sort of wax? How can I keep the chalk to not be dusty?
    Thank you.
