In honor of my weekend trip to the big D. Yee-haw!
I think we can all agree on Preppy having two mascots: the alligator and the whale. In my mind, the whale is representative of Northeast Preps and the Alligator is fitting for all of us sweet tea sipping G.R.I.T.S. below the Mason Dixon line. Imagine my excitement when I came home to this package yesterday evening:
The wonderful Julie over at Boatman Geller sent me this fabulous notepad. I LIVE for BG paper products, and I had JUST ran out of this same exact notepad. Luckily, I also have the Madras Patch Blue so I was never without a preppy pad to jot down my thoughts. I wouldn't want you all to worry. This and much, much more at www.boatmangeller.com.
And speaking of sweat tea sipping G.R.I.T.S.
How much do all of my Southern Girls love the G.R.I.T.S. books? If I weren't so committed to the Torah, G.R.I.T.S. Guide to Life would just about be my bible.
I own this t-shirt and love it. Deborah Ford is one of my favorite authors. Sure, her series may not be thrown into the literary canon anytime soon, but the piece of the South that she's managed to capture is priceless in my eyes. Visit www.gritsgifts.com to see the full collection.
Speaking of Southern t-shirts...
Oh, how I need this to add to my collection! It says, "Celebrate the South... Y'all Spoken Here!". If you would like to order one of these darlings, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have never before included men's apparel in TPP, but after yesterday's response, I'm discovering that I do have male readers. I think it's about time!
Few things in life get me going like a boy in a bowtie. I love this "Boots and Shoes" one from Southern Proper.
Alright, Y'ALL. It's yet another 4-day week in the JGIWC world. I'm off to Dallas, Texas tomorrow with the Baby Fashionista. As many of you know, we lived there for five years and miss it dearly. I'm looking forward to celebrating our Southern heritage for a few days.
Have a wonderful weekend, readers!
