I got an amazing e-mail yesterday; it was an invite to attend Paula Deen LIVE in Charlotte! I’ll also be attending the after party and keeping my fingers crossed for a photo op. On top of that I also get to attend the Brad Paisley concert in Virginia Beach, VA on September 18th.

Oh, did I forget to mention there will be a meet & greet? Oh yea, y’all! Okay -my country is showing.

Then on September 26th we’ll be taking a girls only road trip to Myrtle Beach, SC.

I have such a full schedule but wouldn’t trade a second of it, especially after the way this month started out for me. I won’t go into details but it has been far from fun. I definitely needed these fabulous opportunities to reassure me that it’s always darkest before the dawn.

Speaking of which, this song is amazing!


What I’m listening to:

Another tidbit of awesomeness? These awesome Ergo Chef Crimson Series Knives (received for review). I decided to channel my inner Paula and fix Chicken & Dumplings for dinner and these knives were just what I needed.

I used the 3.5″ paring knife to slice mushrooms and cut out the dumplings.

Precision cuts made the dumplings perfect!

I used the 7″ Nakiri knife to slice the chicken after I had cooked it for a little while. I didn’t have to do any sawing or hacking; the Nakiri knife did a wonderful job. It cut smoothly and effortlessly.

Both knives cut like butter and came packaged in cute boxes.

I can see these knives making a wonderful gift for anyone. The long boxes resemble jewelry cases so be careful with that, don’t want to get too many hopes up. Well, these are all kinds of awesome so there may be no disappointment. In fact I would take these knives over some of the jewelry I’ve received any day.
