Good Saturday morning blog world.

It's been a long week. I've missed one of my new favorite hobbies. But I've been busy, busy, busy.

This time last week, I added another notch under my education belt. Yes, I graduated from Tulane University! Now I'm ready for what's next. I have some things in mind. I will keep you posted in the coming weeks.

As for today, I'm watching season 6 of Sex in the City. I'm so ready for the movie to come out next week. And no, I'm not planning to get all dolled up with a big group of girls. I'll be sexin all by myself. lol.
I'm sooooo ready to get Carrie'd away!

I am loving my latest read: The Little Black Book of Success.
It's so inspirational and I love how at the end of each chapter the authors provide what they call MAMAisms; which are the things your mother probably have told you once or twice...or in my case, three times.
Here are some of today's MAMAisms:
*Always hold your head high
*Positive energy yields a positive attitude
*Stay on course and expect to be successful (my personal fav)

SASSY SPACES: A Live in Kitchen

Lately, whenever I go to Apartment Therapy, I haven't found any thing that really "wow'd" me..until the other day. This is Jennifer's kitchen. I'm not sure who Jennifer is or what she does but her style is so pretty and livable.
I love this space.

I know that I'm a little late... but I have made a promise to myself to make a "To-Do" list every month by the last day of the prior month.

I only want to have five things on the list that I must do. I think it's a good way to take small steps to reach long-term goals.

There are a few things on the May List.. including paying off a small bill, graduating from Tulane, and cleaning out my closet and taking some things to Goodwill.

I am super excited about my monthly lists. I think small accomplishments make us work harder towards larger ones. Plus, I love lists.

I LOVE the song "Closer" Corinne Bailey Rae. It's from her latest album "The Sea"
Here's her live performance on Ellen. LOVES IT!
I just finished leftover from last night...
Yep, chicken. The story of my life. No really, I think I eat chicken 300 days out of the year. In addition to the baked chicken, I made mac and cheese, steamed some broccoli and made some cornbread with a honey spread on top! So good yall. It was soooo good yesterday and today.

Check out the super simple baked chicken recipe on Simply Recipes. Ironically enough, the person who submitted the recipe is named Elise;)

Is it corny that I want to start wearing an apron? lol. I think they are cute...besides it seems like I am cooking all the doggone time!

Unit #M: Look What I Found

I found these fabulous my least favorite place in the world: Wal-Mart.
They fold down..and I only paid $45 a piece!!! A huge difference from the longtime Target stools which were $90 each about 6 yrs ago (one broke...)
And here's the best new stools look like cousins to my overpriced dining room table--luckily it was a gift...because it wasy WAY too expensive.

Dare I say it.... Yay Wal-Mart???????
