  1. You are THE BEST!! I am so excited and honored to be a part of your This and That! Thank you so much, friend!!! Have a fab week.

    xo Michael

  2. I bought one of the little waffle irons a few years ago – I forget that I have it. Good for one person but not very practical for a family of four. I haven’t been able to get crisp waffles from it, after trying several recipes.

  3. I just ordered the J Crew dress, too! It’s too cute. Fingers crossed we’ll have places to wear them to by this summer.


  4. Myrtle Beach SC is great! Actually we like to stay in Surfside Beach which is adjacent to MB but with much less crowded beaches (but just as beautiful) and less noise when you want to be sleeping. It is within 5-10 minutes of all the other non-beach fun places in MB area. Don’t forget to take a Jet Ski tour of the intercoastal waterway.
    OR Hilton Head Island which is more relaxing, serene atmosphere.

    1. I used to go to Myrtle Beach every year when I was a kid. Great memories! Thanks for sharing!
