Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother's Day

I wanted to wish you all a very blessed Mother's Day!  I pray that you are able to spend the day with your mom, your children, and any other special person in your life.  For me I'm blessed to have spent Saturday with my own mom - and eat all of her potato salad that she made just for me! When I picked up Bailey at school on Friday this is part of the gift that her teacher helped each child make.  If you'd like to know more about the "real" Eco Chic then I guess you should ask my daughter because I really like the lady she's describing!  It's great to see how you look to a 4 year old. Oh and everything she said is true!  I'm not going to tell her anything different! Why yes, I am 20 years old!  Of course that would mean I had my son when I was 10. Why yes, I have the same favorite color as you do!  Although my second favorite color is Tiffany Blue! Why yes, I catch my own fish for dinner - at Publix! Um, red wine? My 4 year old pays a bit too much attention to my ... [ Read More ]

Welcome to my newest app addiction – Vine!

Vine Profile

As I was settling into bed last night I do what I do every night; I opened up Instagram.  Then I saw it - a few of my followers starting sharing their Vine profiles.  What's Vine?  What's #vineapp?  What's all this chatter I see on Instagram. Of course I do what every good social media junkie does - go to iTune and search for Vine.  I actually had 3 different "Vine" apps come up so I had to figure out which one they were talking about.  Vine - Make a scene, by Vine Labs.  It appears that this app was just released by Twitter actually and combines all of the things I love about Twitter and Instagram with a twist; 6 second videos! Once you create an account (I linked mine to my Twitter account to keep my profiles consistent) you can start following your friends and have them follow you back.  It looks very similar to Instagram (but green) with a place to "like" a post and leave comments on posts. The thing that makes Vine different is that it's not photos but videos.  Short, six ... [ Read More ]
