Out & About OOTD Bloopers

Out & About OOTD Bloopers

Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel for my Out & About OOTD! On Saturday, Johnny and I planned on having lunch at The Basement after running our errands. We actually DoorDashed it the week before but I was craving their spinach artichoke dip something fierce! By the time we finished running around, however, we were both really hungry and verging on hangry. Sitting around at a restaurant instantly became the last thing we wanted to do so we ended up at Taco Bell, instead. It’s all good, though, because it slapped AND we were able to snap some pics while we waited for our food. Take a look at what definitely didn’t make the first cut:

A tip of the cap and a howdy doo to all of my fine readers


Lol hey, if you’ve got it; flaunt it!


I LOOK GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Practicing my red carpet wave for when I’m not frequenting the Taco Bell


Don’t mind me just gathering my bearings


Not sure what’s going on here, but obviously I thought I was really working it!


My about to eat food face or just my losing my balance face? The world will never know!


Feeling fierce, but looking like OOTD amateur hour


Have I told you all about my recent falling out with Taco Bell? Well, we are clearly on the mend now but for a month I refused to get it no matter how badly I wanted it. The cause: At least one item in not one, or two, but THREE vegetarian orders in a row were contaminated with meat. The first time, I considered it to be a fluke. The second time, I was annoyed. But the third time? I was pissed because it was just flushing money down the toilet.

After the third offense, I went on strike and planned on saving my business for when the wounds weren’t so tender. It took some convincing on Johnny’s part to get me to eat one of my favorite foods on the planet, and I am so glad that he persisted. While my strike was difficult, the absence certainly made the heart grow fonder and the Taco Bell ordered after this photo shoot was the best ever and had no mistakes. I can handle OOTD bloopers, but TBell bloopers are a totally different story!

All in all, it was a pretty good Saturday this past weekend! Stepping out with my main squeeze even if it’s just for errands is always fun and the outing ended with a reunion worthy of the greatest love story ever told. #blessed ❤

Have you ever had a falling out with your favorite eatery? Do you still frequent it or no? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah


Reunited And It Feels So Good

Reunited And It Feels So Good

Hello! After many a video chat dates with my BFF, Lea, we finally were able to reunite in person as she is fully vaccinated and Johnny and I just need our second shot. I had been looking forward to our real life reunion for several months and, needless to say, I was counting down the hours until I was done at work and could see my bestie again.

As always, Lea and I had a fabulous time girl talking, reminiscing, and laughing hysterically for hours on end and I felt so incredibly thankful for that time with her. It also gave me the opportunity to officially ask her if she’d like to attend my family only wedding ceremony! Throughout the pandemic, video chat dates with my friends helped keep me sane but there is nothing like seeing someone who you love so much in person after months of going without.

With so many of my family and friends getting vaccinated, it truly feels like a bright light at the end of such a dark tunnel. Seeing Lea was my first in person hang out with one of my friends since mid December and it couldn’t have come at a more perfect time because I had had a rough couple of days. Taking a break from my stress even for just a little while to go through a litany of all of the dorky things my BFF and I did in high school was the best thing for me.

I always say that every hang out with Lea is my favorite but this reunion definitely tops the charts. I cannot wait to get more real life hang outs scheduled in the books and I am so delighted for my best friend to be able to join Johnny, myself, and our families on my wedding day! ❤

Have you been able to reunite with any of your loved ones recently? What are some of your social distanced summer plans? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Reunited And It Feels So Good!

Reunited And It Feels So Good!

Heyyy everyone and happy Friday!!! So yesterday I had a beautiful reunion with one of my dear friends, Neva. Miss Neva lived in the same assisted living home as my beloved late grandmother and in the time that my grandma lived there I grew very close to Neva. Unfortunately, a few weeks ago when I went to visit Neva I learned that she was hospitalized and I was not allowed any further information because I was not her immediate family. For all I knew, she could have been anywhere. Europe, New York, perhaps assisted living in Hendersonville, TN. The possibilities were endless.

The fact that I did not know where one of my best friends was at and what state of health that she was in simply killed me, so I continued to call the home that she used to live in and the administrators were able to tell me what city she was located in. With just a small lead to follow up on, I Googled the nursing homes that were based in the city that Neva was in and as luck would have it, the first place I called was where she was located at! So after my Inspector Gadget work, I plugged in the GPS into the Little Red Love Machine and headed off to see my darling Southern belle. “Reunited and it feels so good” is a complete understatement, because it was an absolutely gorgeous afternoon that we spent together….minus a few hiccups! Let’s discuss!

I found Neva’s new home after a few drives around a city that I wasn’t familiar with and I walked into the building with bated breath. I was afraid that I would find my friend in poor health or that she would be in a state that she would not recognize me. I took the elevator to her room with my breath held and a pounding heart and found my way to her room. When I found the room with her name on it I saw that it was empty, which made sense since it was lunch time. I decided to make my way over to the dining room and as I walked away from Neva’s room I passed a woman in a coral pink shirt with flowing gray hair. Every time I’ve seen Neva since I was a little girl, she had a blonde hair piece in, so I’ve never seen her natural hair. I walked past this mystery woman and something told me that I should turn around, just to do a double check. And lucky for me, as soon as I turned around, I saw that this woman was my Neva! I approached her with tears in my eyes and I’ll never EVER forget the way that she looked at me. It was a look of pure love, shock, and complete joy. I’m pretty confident that after she was relocated we both thought that we were never going to see each other again…So nothing was better than seeing her recognize me with the biggest grin on her face that was humanly possible – it was one of the most beautiful moments that I’ve ever had. After a million hugs hello, I was overjoyed to learn that she was happy and in excellent health and we then proceeded to spend the afternoon together.

Neva and I spent the afternoon laying in bed girl talking, sharing red velvet cake, and laughing our heads off. After some cuddle time I told Neva that I was curious about the rest of the rooms in her new home, so I took her for some laps around the floor that she lives on with her holding onto the crook of my arm. Unfortunately, we had a little mishap while she took me around the building for a grand tour. As we made our way around the labyrinth of hallways, there was a woman there who was having a really hard time maneuvering her wheelchair. She told Neva how much her hands hurt and I offered to push her back to her room so she could rest. The woman took one look at me and saw my piercings and bring red hair and said that “people who look like you go to jail” and she refused to let me help her because I would go to jail if I did. My feelings were hurt so badly that I can’t even begin to describe it to you guys, but in classic Lil Red fashion I gave her a big smile and told her to let me know if she changed her mind. After this upsetting encounter, I took Neva’s hand and we headed back to her room. We painted her nails and chit chatted some more when out of the blue Neva said, “you know honey, some people just don’t get it. But you do whatever you want. Whatever makes you happy.” I knew that she was referencing to the lady in the hallway and I instantly started tearing up. I told my dear friend that all I needed in her new living quarters was her approval – no one else. And with that, she told me that I’ve always had her blessing and we parted ways with a hug and a kiss until our next visit. ❤ ❤ ❤

I can’t even begin to tell you guys how much my reunion with one of my best friends meant to me and I’m simply thrilled to be able to share it with all of you. Despite the cruel comments of one person, I was able to bask in the presence of someone who shows me unconditional love and that’s all I really need! ❤
