Self Care - How We Take Care of Ourselves

Jenny Louise Marie   Hi there!  I’m thrilled to be linking up with Erika and Shay for this monthly party. This is where we share how we….  Then we get to learn from each other.  This month’s topic is “How We Take Care of Ourselves.”  What does self-care mean to you?  Here’s what it means to me… let’s jump right in.     It’s so interesting, one of my friends was just telling me that I should do a post just like this.  There are lots of ways that we should take care of ourselves.  I can’t say I’ve got them all covered, but IRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Friends, I don’t claim to be a fashion blogger.  I claim no expertise whatsoever.  I, like many of you, just try to keep up with the trends so as not to look too dated.  Don’t you think that ages you?   Like many of you, I love a good deal, and more importantly, I want to love what I buy.  That sometimes   usually is no easy task. I appreciate all the help I can get in this area.  So, sometimes I turn to Sheaffer.  Today, I thought I would fill you in.  That’s right.  Sheaffer told me to, so I did.  And,Read More →

Jenny Louise Marie This year Mr. LouiseMarie and I are celebrating 14 days of love.  Starting on February 1st, we will alternate days and do something loving/romantic for the other.  These are going to be small gestures with more thought than just a gift.  You can find some of those ideas here.   However, I know some of you are still searching for something unique for your honey.  So, as promised, I have put together this Valentine’s Day gift guide to help you get just the right thing. Hopefully one of these gift ideas will be perfect for you.  So, let’s get right to it.This DateRead More →

Loft Fashion Picks

Jenny Louise Marie Fashion can be tough…hard to keep up with trends, hard to find a good deal.  I was browsing at Loft this week and taking advantage of their sale.  They always have some fun pieces to add to my closet.  In addition they update their stock often so there is always something new and fresh.  I thought it would be fun to share my fashion picks with you this week.  So, I selected my top ten fashion picks from Loft for this week. If you live in Texas, like me, then you know that the weather changes every day.  One day we haveRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Hey there!  I’m so glad you stopped by today.  Valentine’s Day is going to be here before we know it.   I thought I could get ahead this year instead of waiting until sometime after February 1st to give it a thought.  So, I scoured the internet so I could start making plans.  And, lucky for you, I’m sharing how you can celebrate Valentine’s Day with these ten awesome ideas! Before we get to that, can I say just a couple of things on this topic?  As a woman, I love the whole idea of one day to celebrate love and be romantic. Read More →

Friday Favorites at

Jenny Louise Marie It’s Friday!  #hiphiphooray!  That means it’s time for Friday favorites.  This week I’m joining the fun and linking up with Erika, Andrea, and Narci to share a few of my favorite things right now. Let’s start things off with my latest favorite.  Date night!  No, it’s not a new concept to me.  However, if you follow me, you might have read about my goal to infuse some fun and attention into my marriage.  (I wrote all about it here.)  You know, if you’ve been with the same person for a some time, things might start to operate on auto pilot.  That’s no good. Read More →

Jenny Louise Marie If you enjoy adding seasonal or holiday decor to your home, you are in luck today.  I have found some of the cutest Valentine’s Day printables that you can use for hanging on the wall.  All yo need is a printer and a frame.  Alternately, you could use these as cards as well. However you choose to use these, they will certainly show that love is in the air. So, if you’re a regular around these parts, then you may remember my holiday decor that I shared here.  Well, I put together a gallery wall of sorts to showcase some of myRead More →
