When I worked at Betsey Johnson, she popped open bottles of champagne on a daily basis...which was odd to me because I had always felt like champagne was such an occasional beverage choice. Almost like there was an unspoken rule that you could only drink champagne on anniversaries and at weddings. However, ever since the Fourth of July, my thought process has been slightly altered: drink champagne when you feel like it [which, apparently for Betsey, was mid-afternoon M-F...to each her own]. However, this weekend IS a reason to start celebrating! This evening our friend, Drew graduates from the Police Academy after months and months and months of training. Felicidades! Also, this Saturday is the 10th Annual Music City Brewers Fest, so we have lots of out-of-town friends coming in to play. Happy, happy.

Early last week I did a bit of work out in Kingston Springs for an upcoming online auction. It was very boring, tedious work and I would frequently grow tired of sitting in this random house filled with copious amounts of dolls and antique glassware. Therefore, I truly enjoyed my daily trips to the downtown area of tiny, tiny Kingston Springs. I had hoped to find a cute local eatery...and found it I did. It was called Red Tree Coffee and there I ordered an iced coffee [naturally] and a "grown-up grilled cheese" - which had bacon on it and I'm not complaining. In addition to the food, I loved the large barn doors inside the store and the unique lighting above the kitchen. They also had hung a single artist's ridiculous paintings throughout the store [at a loss as to what his name was]. I wanted the large, still-life, oil painting of a mixer and those two badass portraits of
Faulkner [Whitman...thanks Grant, you douche] and Poe painted onto newspaper clippings.

I'm a huge Woody Allen fan. When Harry Met Sally, Annie Hall, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, etc. His newest movie, Midnight in Paris could possibly be my favorite yet. It truly makes you wish you lived in Paris in the 20s. The music is lovely, the wardrobe is gorgeous...I could gush all day long. Last night I saw it with my mother for the second time...only to find it just as magical as the first time. Go see it in theaters while you still can.

This past Saturday, a few friends and I travelled up to the corner of Riverside and McGavock [Riverside Village] for the 2nd Annual OMG [Old Made Good] Flea Market. As a craft lover...this store AND flea market made me the happiest girl in the world. Owners, Kate & Ashley, exhibit what they like to call "General Badassery" through their exceptional eye for vintage finds and bizarre crafts. I found myself repeating over and over how happy this store made me. Cannot wait to take anyone and everyone I know back to this adorable shop. HERE is their website/blog and you can follow them on twitter @OldMadeGood - you're welcome.
I bought three fun items at OMG that day...
