Southern Belle Contemplates Monday: Vera Bradley

I have a Vera Bradley obsession, I’m not going to lie about it.  I love the bright-colored purses and bags.  I even have the Vera Bradley luggage, large spinner and small spinner.  So of course now my computer is decked out in Vera Bradley too, just like my Kindle and Phone.  I mean of course I have a Vera Bradley laptop case but no one really sees that unless I am carrying my laptop somewhere.  But now everyone can see it when I use my laptop.  My prescription glasses and sun glasses are even Vera Bradley!

Southern Belle Contemplates Monday (A Week Late): Catching Up

Sorry, it has been a crazy week around here.  I feel like I am going non-stop all day everyday.  This Southern Belle is wearing herself out.  I work, work, work, try to have somewhat of a social life, make family time, plus try to fit a book or two in there somewhere too.  I need a vacation!  And except for a few weekend trips coming up in the next few months I don’t have a vacation planned till after the first of the year.  I love working hard but some days I feel like I am working too hard.  The one plus to the week is the new season of Duck Dynasty.  I love that show and it makes me get my mind off stuff for a little bit.  I will always make time for Duck Dynasty into my busy schedule.  Hopefully the next week goes better.

Southern Belle Contemplates Monday (On Tuesday): 10 Random Things From My Southern Belle Brain

Ten Random Things I have been thinking about and thought I would share.

  1. I think Hallmark Channel or someone else should make movies out of the “Yada Yada Prayer Group”.  I would love to see my favorite characters come to live on the screen.
  2. Part of me thinks it would be cool if they did a “Gone With The Wind” movie re-make.
  3. I think it would interesting if they did a “The Nanny” reunion movie.
  4. While I liked that the new “90210” ended with Liam and Annie getting engaged, I would have liked it better if the show ended with them getting married.
  5. The Pioneer Woman is probably my favorite celebrity cook and probably the one I can relate to the most.
  6. I think I might write a book, or at least try.
  7. I would love to see Morgan and Garcia end up together on “Criminal Minds”
  8. I really don’t think “Scarlett: The Sequel to Gone With The Wind” is what Margaret Mitchell would have had in mind if she was going to write a sequel.  The Scarlett in there was not the Scarlett from the original.
  9. On “Revenge” I don’t really think Declan is dead.
  10. I can’t wait to hear who is going to play Christian Gray and Gideon Cross in the movies for “Fifty Shades of Gray” and “Bared To You”.  I think Colin Egglesfield could pull off one of them.

Southern Belle Contemplates Monday: Nashville (TV Show)

This past year I did not watch the show Nashville.  Mainly because it is on at the same time as Criminal Minds and well I can’t miss my Criminal Minds.  Well this summer I have been catching up on Season 1 of Nashville.  I am watching episode 12 right now as we speak and I am loving this show so far.  I can’t wait to get home from work each day so I can watch more.  I will be ready for Season 2 when it starts this fall.  I will still be watching Criminal Minds on Wednesday nights but I will catch up on Nashville the next day.  September can’t get here fast enough!

Southern Belle Contemplates Monday (on Wednesday): Radio

I don’t usually listen to the radio, I prefer books on cd when I am driving to and from work.  The only time I have the radio on in my car is if I have someone riding with me.  But there is a song on country radio right now I can’t get enough of.  In fact I can’t get enough of the music video either.  I’m sure you are wondering what song I am talking about.  It is “Redneck Crazy” by Tyler Farr.  There is something about that song and his voice that has just drawn me in.  I can’t wait for October 15th for his cd to come out.  I can’t wait to listen to it for the first time and to hear his voice on different types of songs.

Southern Belle Contemplates Monday: A Surprise Winner in NH

Yesterday afternoon in New Hampshire a man who has been through hell and back, or at least it seems, surprised thousands.  Brian Vickers won the New Hampshire race yesterday.  That’s right I said Brian Vickers won the NASCAR Sprint Cup race yesterday!  Vickers does not even have a full-time ride.  Yesterday he was racing the number 55 car for Michael Waltrip Racing.  A few years ago it was unsure if Vickers would be able to ever race again after a health issue side-lined him.  In fact it could have even killed him, so his winning yesterday was a great ending to a long story.  Maybe this will mean Vickers can find a full-time ride for next year.  Congratulations Brian Vickers!

Southern Belle Contemplates Monday (on Tuesday): Vera Bradley Outlet

I love Vera Bradley!  Everyone that knows me knows this.  I’m always caring a Vera Bradley bag.  In fact every day I have a least ten pieces of Vera Bradley with me at one time.  When we went to Disney World I took about 25 pieces with me.  This past weekend when we went away for a couple of nights I had a least 15 pieces with me.  When I found out that come fall the Disney Parks are going to start selling Mickey and Minnie Vera Bradley bags I was overly excited.  Two of my favorite things rolled into one.! I can’t wait to either order one on-line or get one next year if/when I go back to Disney World.  So when I found out there is a Vera Bradley Outlet Store in the newly reopened Opry Mills Mall in Nashville, I was a little excited.  After all Nashville is one of our favorite places to travel for a weekend getaway.  Well this past weekend that is where we went to get away, Nashville!  The only thing I had on my list was to hit three stores in the mall; Disney, Vera, and Bass Pro.  I know that is a strange list but that is where this Southern Belle wanted to shop at.  Disney and Vera because well as you can tell I love Disney and I am obsessed with Vera Bradley Bags.  Bass Pro because I wanted to see what kind of Duck Commander/Duck Dynasty stuff they had.  Getting back on track now.  On Saturday I made it to the Vera Bradley Outlet.  Well I am not going to lie I was a little disappointed with it.  The prices were okay and they were having a great sale but I think I do better purchasing from the on-line outlet.  I did purchase a few things, and for the few things I did purchase I had to wait about a half hour in line in an extremely hot store, I was about to pass out by the time I got to the register.  If I was purchasing on-line I could have done it in my PJ’s and with the AC freezing me out!  In fact I was very disappointed with the whole mall, if I ever go back to that mall it will be too soon!
