A Few Quips...

I really want a new pair of Converse low-tops. I had a pair ages ago and the darn things wore themselves out. Anyway, I know I’d wear the heck out of them this fall/winter on non-office days. With skinnies. And oversize sweaters. Just call me Ashley Olsen.

Ruby and her brother Ari got into something way stinky in the yard last night and after I bathed her, this is what she did…


On a more serious note, I’d like to ask everyone to please say a prayer for one of my high school friends. His name is Trevor Ware and recently, he was the victim of a hit and run accident. He was riding his motorcycle and a drunk driver hit him, knocking him onto the windshield of the car, and then leaving him to die.

*The driver of the vehicle was found and arrested.
**You can read more about the accident here. A Little Rock news station did a great story on it.
***You can read more on UAMS, who has offered to keep Trevor as long as it takes, despite him not having adequate insurance coverage.

Trevor is currently at UAMS in Little Rock and has had multiple surgeries already to fix several very critical injuries. It will be a long road of recovery time and probably many days of physical therapy afterward. He is unable to speak or breathe without assistance right now (he has a trac tube) and is in a coma, as indicated by the family via FB.

Please, please say a prayer for sweet Trevor and his family. He has a special needs brother and I know that his mom is hurting right now, struggling take care of everything. He’s one of those rare human beings that’s just innately good, in every sense of the word.

I’d appreciate for you all to send him your thoughts and prayers… he could really use them. He doesn’t have the best insurance and they really do need a miracle from God.

If anything, I hope this encourages everyone to go out and celebrate life today. It’s short and so very fragile. Enjoy time with your loved ones and take for granted nothing.

Be blessed, lovelies- 


  1. So sad. I will keep him and the family in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Oh, that's so awful. I'm so sorry to hear that. Happy thoughts and prayers.

  3. Praying!


    p.s. hope you got your sneakers!

  4. How terrible for your friend. Prayers for him and his family.

    I've been wanting some gray with while polka dot Converse. So cute.

    Ruby is the most precious thing. I want her!

  5. Low rise converses are definitley on my wish list!!

    Many thoughts going towards your friend.

  6. O no!! Prayers, Prayer, Prayers. God can work miracles. That's for sure. My boss' son was in a motorcycle accident at the beginning of the year. He is paralyzed from the chest down but he is already back to work (architect... what a blessing to still be able to work with his arms) and as recovered as he can be!!

  7. My sweet Harper falls asleep every time baths are over! Love those converse with skinnies!

  8. I am so, so sorry about your dear friend. My ex-boyfriend, sadly was killed in the same exact way. I'm happy that Trevor has a fighting chance and I will say my prayers for him and his family. I am happy they caught the person that did this. My ex's killer is still on the loose after quite a few years :( I hate that there was not justice for his family.

    Bless Ruby she's so cute. And yes - I love converse. I had a gripe about mine last week - they kill my feet. I think the sales guy sold them to me too small. I'm going to try my new inserts too - they kill my feet because they are so flat. Hopefully the inserts will allow me to be fashionable!

  9. :(

    In happier news, I wear Navy lowtop no-lace converse every single day! I love them. I will warn you not to do the "custom" ones, those fell apart within 2 months.


What'cha got?
