     When you are surrounded by fine dining establishments (and I don’t mean necessarily ‘fancy’, I mean ‘delicious’), you tend to walk around and follow your nose, or the buzz, or the dogs.     Yes, the D-O-G-S.      And some of them are H-O-T.     With a side of fries.     ‘Cause that’s how […]

The Deadly NightshadeBelladonna plant ONCE UPON A TIME     in a castle faraway,     in the time of fair maidens and chivalrous knights,     lived a plant that lay in abundance in the dark green forests of the land.     Yes, it was poisonous if ingested, would cause delirium, hallucinations, dilate your pupils beyond human […]

     Blo me.     No, seriously, blo me.     I’m on my way to a gala, then to pick-up friends at the airport, but not before I do the laundry, write a few posts, check with the cat sitter, and pay the bills.     The garbage needs to go out, the garden should be […]

  • Sue - Oh yes! I saw a show or news release all about this new kind of salon where they just blow you out and you come out looking like a celebrity. Super clever idea.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - Super clever! Supersupersuper!!!! They’re my new favorite stop-before-friday-night-out place. Yippie!ReplyCancel

  • Krisztina Williams - That sounds heavenly! I haven’t taken the time to blow dry my hair in nearly a decade (since I had kids).ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - OMG! Now, you go right into that bathroom of yours and wash and dry and curl and primp and celebrate yourself!!! I insist!!!! hahahaha Welcome Kriszina. I hope you follow along!ReplyCancel

  • Sharon Greenthal - I’d like to have one of these next door to my house.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - This one is only a few minute car ride down the street! Thank God! ps: your comment avatar doesn’t have a beautiful pic of you attached!ReplyCancel

  • MyHaunted Attic - Wow! your day sounded hectic!

    This salon looks amazing!

    I’m not sure we have any of these in the Wales.

    Life would be so much easier if we did : )ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - Is that where you are? No wonder your finds are so great! I love your site and try to check in daily. Wait a minute- I should be talking about MY blog ….ReplyCancel

  • Jessica Smock - I want to go! Why can’t this be next to my house? It’s a tremendous idea! And a beautiful design…ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - I know! Maybe the next Starbucks with a Blo Salon on every corner? I wonder if their stock is public yet?ReplyCancel

  • Chris Carter - That is such a great hilarious way to present this cool place! Love it! And what a great idea…ReplyCancel

  • Tammy - LOVE IT! The Blo Me salon should be next to the Bath Me salon which should be next to the Martini Me salon. Great idea and love your take on it!ReplyCancel

      So, you think I don’t get around?      I get around even when I’m not trying to get around!     Like when I’m on an errand run, to the dry cleaners (for Ben who has only two favorite shirts), and the bank (Please, sir, I want some more”), the gas cabal station, […]

  • Stacia Ellermeier - This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.ReplyCancel

  • KarenWendy Irving - Hungry now…and want jelly beans…ReplyCancel

  • Chris Carter - OHMYGOSH that Reuben looks AMAZING!! Glad you got to eat before you went to jail! 😉ReplyCancel

  • William Kendall - The gas cabal station is all too accurate.

    I’d like a reuben… but on different bread. I’ve never liked rye or pumpernickel.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - Hey William. Nice to see you here. As for the bread- it’s pretty much my enemy (Carbs) in all of it’s glorious forms- but a gal’s gotta live once in a while.ReplyCancel

  • Lisa Newlin - I want that cookie with the chocolate star on top! Those are my favorites and no one makes them anymore. Frick!

    And I’ve come across those meter maids giving me a ticket before and they will not negotiate with you. So i take it as an excuse to stay parked there a little longer and go get that cup of coffee. At least your parking is going to be paid for!ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - That chocolate star was a handmade dollop of ganache! Creamy fudge. Truth be told- I ate that first! ANd, yes I let the car sit all day and too a taxi home. So there!ReplyCancel

  • Sue - I’ll take a Cup-O-Joe (with cream) and a Reuben (rye or marble rye) to go please, and chocolate truffles on the side. I’m high maintenance like in When Harry Met Sally.ReplyCancel

  • onefunnymotha - That looks delicious.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - It was. I haven’t had a rueben in ages. Thought I’d treat myself after dealing with insane meter maid. Or kill her- it was a choice.ReplyCancel

  • Lorelei - Hi, just figured out how to post here. DUH!
    Nice post, Cheryl, and you made me want chocolate all over again. Darn you!

    But yes. I suggest a nice chocolate treat after that meter maid paid you such injustice. That makes it all worth while, I think. We can kill her later. I can send a vampire or werewolf for you, just say the word. I’m connected, you know?ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - Hhahahaah. Actually, I should have you on speed dial. Glad you figured it out and I hope to see you hangin’ in the hood frequently!!!

     A week, or so, back, I dragged my husband to an opening night fete (not to be confused with ‘fit’ though that was present also), Portrait of Faith: John Paul II; His Life & Art, showcasing artifacts that were used/touched/adored by God’s representative on Earth, during his visit to the flock in New Orleans […]

  • The Desert Rocks - The year after Katrina we went to New Orleans for Easter mass. It was a long drive to St. Louis Cathedral but worth every minute. Things were still in shambles along the way and throughout the town but we wanted to pray with the locals because Easter means re-birth and they needed all the prayers they could get! Are your wings blue too?ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - Ben and I moved here the summer after Katrina. We wanted to be part of the rebirth. We have attended both Easter and Xmas mass at St. Louis Cat. Beautiful and meaningful. That you came for the Easter in the aftermath is simply stunning. Extraordinary people from all over the world have done extraordinary work here over the past several years. Sharing a mass with New Orleans is surely on of them. I am so touched by your story and your effort, so on behalf of all of us- thank you- and our wings come in many colors.ReplyCancel

  • Sue - I somehow did not see this post. I have no doubt you have wings, and love the beautiful photos. I believe this new Pope may really be something special.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - I do too. He’s already done several things I like: declined the Papel penthouse, walked the crowds instead of riding in limo, stopped to kiss both a severally mentally disabled person and a dog, paid his own bill at his hotel, wants to cook his own food, etc. He may set the kind of example I think the the Vatican needs. And my wings are both high style and function- I use them to fly all over the place.ReplyCancel
