Wednesday Wonderings - stuff that's on my mind and making me go hmm...

Jenny Louise Marie I have survived son #2’s graduation, his party, and the end of the school year.  It’s time for me to get back to my normal schedule.  That means it’s time for me to share what I’ve been wondering about lately.  You know what I mean, those random thoughts that occur to you but maybe don’t have a clear answer.  So, I share those thoughts and you weigh in with what you think too.  Got it?  Okay, let’s get to it.   Wall Color First, I will readily admit that this is a silly thing to wonder about…but then again, many of myRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Hi there!  So glad you decided to stop by.  I am happy to report that I am full on summer mode here at Casa Louise Marie.  I am all about shorts and tees.  Which brings me to today’s subject.  I was recently reading another blogger’s post which showcased the cutest tee. That means I quickly clicked over to order it.  However, I found it was sold out.  I also found a $38 price tag. Now, I am clothes girl and I was tempted to go ahead and order it.  However, since I had to wait for it anyway, I decided to tryRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Alright girls, it’s officially swimsuit time.  I dread this time of year EVERY year.  However, I live in Texas where’s it is HOT.  So, it’s either wear a swimsuit or hibernate from June – October.  No joke.  It’s hot here.  Anyway, I am not her to tell you how to not dread it, but I am here to tell you about a place where I’ve had some swimsuit luck.  That’s right.  I have found swimsuits you will not dread wearing.  #theholygrailofswimsuits So, a couple of years ago I found this little online shop.  I’m sure I found it from some Pinterest picture.Read More →

Jenny Louise Marie So, if you’re a regular around here you might have noticed that I didn’t post for yesterday’s Wednesday Wonderings.  Believe me, it’s not that I had nothing on my mind, quite the opposite actually.  I was busy with graduation and wrapping up the school year.  Something had to be taken off my plate so that post got the old heave-ho.  Anyway, I’m back and it’s time for my weekly link up for this week’s Hodgepodge questions.  I felt like tackling these was something I could handle this week.  So, here goes. 1. What makes you feel accomplished? Explain. My kids.  I almostRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Happy Memorial Day friends!  I hope you’re enjoying the holiday today. I want to take a minute to remind everyone to thank a veteran today.  Although not all of our brave soldiers were lost in service, we owe them all a HUGE thank you for the service they provide our country.  Many men in my family have served, and I always think of them today.  My grandfather fought in World War II, my uncles have served, my brother served and spent a year in Iraq, and now my son in considering serving.  Let’s keep them all in our thoughts and prayers today. Now,Read More →

Jenny Louise Marie If you’re a regular reader here, it is no secret that I love to read.  I’ve written about it here and here.  I always have at least one book going, and sometimes two.  I’ve always been a reader and have (hopefully) instilled a love of reading in my boys as well.  So, I have read lots of books over the years.  Today, I’m sharing with you a few recent picks.  Maybe you will find one that sounds good to you too.  Alright, let’s get this show on the road. 🙂 ~ note~ I found all the book overviews at Barnes and Noble asRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Howdy friends.  It’s time to link up again with From This Side of the Pond for this week’s Hodgepodge.  As I read the questions this week I thought that this one was going to be tough.  #5 especially.    That’s okay, I still love participating each week.  So, without further delay, I’ll start answering. Enjoy!   1. What color is prominent in your home? Are you glad about that or wishing you could cover it up or remove it? I am in a new home and that gave me the opportunity to kind of makeover my whole look from my old house.Read More →
