Here are some bits and pieces of life these days from Instagram

If you're ever in Frisco, TX and like Italian food, you must go to Tavolo.  So good.

Colorful French Macarons - I love you France!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016

Friday, July 22, 2016
If you read this blog regularly you know I love Nordstrom.  I love that they have a bit of everything from lingerie to skincare to home decor to baby items and of course, shoes!  The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a big deal for me because they have such great prices and I get to move things from my wish list to the shopping cart.  Here are some items on my radar for this year's sale, even featuring maternity and maternity friendly styles!






Are you a big Nordstrom shopper year-round or only during the big sales?  Please share if you have your eyes on anything fabulous!

Back on The Scene

But not with a Gangsta Lean.  At least not today.  Just informing everyone that the store is back up.  We have some super cute stuff!  Shop at Frenchrum Emporium!



I'll post an Instagram update in a bit on here, maybe on Friday so stay tuned for that.  I'm feeling a lot better and have more energy so I promise I'll get back to my outfit posts and a more regular posting schedule soon.  Thanks for understanding!

Day Trip to Magnolia Market

Friday, June 24, 2016
If you live in Texas (or a surrounding state that won't take you 2 days to drive to it) and you are a fan of HGTV's Fixer Upper, then you take a Day Trip to Magnolia Market aka The Silos.  It's just what you do.  And that's exactly what my friend Joy and I did do a couple of weekends ago.  Late post but as you know, I've been a bit preoccupied.  ;-)

We arrived in Waco a bit after noon and contrary to popular advice, I say don't go too early.  It was still packed.  By the time we left around 2, the crowds had really died down, although it was a tad hotter outside.  Our plan was to hit up the food trucks for crepes, shop and then have another round at the food for some grilled cheese to go.  The day was fun.  My husband asked me what the point of the trip was and I told him, just to see the store and the silos and because, that's why!

The pictures below will take you through our fun little day.

The Silos, obvi.
Best shot I could get of the storefront.  It was hot and we were ready to get inside!
Painting the sign for Magnolia Flour.
I had the Strawberry & Banana Nutella.  It was very good but a bit hard to cut into with a plastic fork.  So yummy ,however.



Of course I signed the guestbook.


The back part of the store.

I told Joanna's mom she got to be a celebrity for the day when I asked her for a pic.  She is petite.  She also made sure that Magnolia bag was facing forward, alright!


We had "The Boss" to go.  Deliciousness featuring bacon, Gouda and basil.
They were finishing up the sign as we left.  Perfect timing.
IG photos.  We were on snapchat through the day as well posting our shenanigans.  Make sure to follow me - @frenchrum.
Are you planning a trip to Waco to visit the Silos anytime soon?  Have you already been?  What do you think of the entire experience?  I recommend it.  I wish I would have bought way more!
