Hey Glammies: I hope you had an amazing Memorial Day Weekend of fun, family, and fashion! I hope you also took a moment to remember the brave soldiers who fought and died so that we can feel protected in this country!
Many of you may not realize that Memorial Day holds an even greater significance in our family than you think. Kayla father was a soldier who was deployed to Iraq where he lost his life after seeing her only once when she was only 2 weeks old. I’m not posting this to make you sad but to inspire you! Kayla’s Dad would be so proud of her accomplishments now!
We spent the long weekend at our Summer Beach Home in Ocean City MD. This is actually a tradition for us! ALL of my family LOVES the beach, so nearly EVERY Summer Holiday is spent at the beach! We ate at fun casual restaurants, and I even made a few special treats for them! We DEFINITELY took time to remember the Fallen Soldiers!! Take a look!
Hey Glammies: I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! We spent it at our Summer beach residence which you can see in another post!
In this post I wanted to inspire you to add some SUMMER STYLE to your home by doing a few minor upgrades!
You really don’t have to tear down walls, or do any major construction to do a refreshing upgrade! Check out the pics of Kayla’s room at our condo in Ocean City Maryland. It only took 1 day to redo and she was SOOO HAPPY!
I chose this JONATHAN ADLER ENSEMBLE and ACCESSORIES because her bedroom window faces the ocean and her room is now like an extension of the beach! Check it out, and may Kayla’s little decor upgrade inspire YOU to make YOUR home SUMMER FRESH and HAPPY!!!
Hey Glammies: People who are close to me know how passionate I am about being a Mom to my 3 AMAZING CHILDREN! Amber, Kayla & Josh!!!
On Mothers Day 2014 My children treated me to a wonderful brunch, and got me flowers and gifts…But one of the HUGEST gifts of all was that my Aunt affectionally known as “Momma K” came to spend Mothers Day with us all the way from NEW ORLEANS!!! Momma K is Creole and speaks a great deal of French. We were so excited to be with her and hear all the fascinating stories about our family lineage! I couldn’t have asked for a better Mother’s Day! Enjoy the pix!

CIRQUE DU SOLEIL: Kà is a show by Cirque du Soleil at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Kà describes the story as “the coming of age of a young man and a young woman through their encounters with love, conflict and the duality of Kà, the fire that can unite or separate, destroy or illuminate.” Kà features 80 artists from around the world, and is a gravity-defying production featuring a powerfully emotive soundtrack that enhances the innovative blend of acrobatic feats, Capoeira dance, puppetry, projections and martial arts.
We absolutely LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS BREATHTAKING PERFORMANCE!!!
If you have the opportunity to visit Vegas in the near future, you MUST MUST MUST as KA to you “to do” list!
Please excuse the fuzziness of my photos as they were ADAMANT about the use of photo equipment in the theatre. (Which I am FULLY aware of being in a major theatre production myself!!!!) So we had to settle for phone cameras and minimal lighting!!!
With that said CIRQUE DU SOLEIL: KA alone is WORTH THE TRIP TO VEGAS!!!
Hey Glammies: Just a quick post to wish our readers a fun and festive CINCO DE MAYO from your favorite Mother/Daughter Bloggers!!!
Hey Glammies; As you have seen and heard by now FLOYD “MONEY” MAYWEATHER got his 46th WIN last night. I was not only excited for him, but also for my son Joshua Dawson who saw it from the ESPN press box last night. He also got the privilege to sit it on The Champs private training session last week. Our entire family hung out at Mayweather Promotions. We even got to see the Magnificent collection of FLOYD MAYWEATHER’S CHAMPIONSHIP BELTS! Check out a few pix!!!
My son Josh had the time of his life watching a closed training session last week. Congratulations FLOYD MAYWEATHER on your 46th VICTORY!!!

Hey Glammies: We had a splashing great time frolicking in the MGM Grand pool last week. The pool seen here is one of FIVE pools the resort has…Needless to say the kids hit them ALL while I only hit 2. I had just as much fun Sun bathing in the AMAZING weather.
Amber and I wore Swimwear by DKNY, Kayla wore a great youthful 2 piece swimsuit by Ralph Lauren. Check out the pix.
