“Playing Dress-Up Begins At Age Five & Never Truly Ends.” – Kate Spade
Tonight I’m drinking Domaine Frédéric Esmonin | 2015 | Gevrey-Chambertin. Burgundy. I can’t always drink baller wines or we’d go broke. Luckily this bargain burgundy is wonderful with dark notes of cherries, raspberries, and other lovely aromas and ingredients. Scored at 91+ points, you can get it for a cool $40. Now that I’ve let you know how deep my pockets are, lol-
Let’s Blog Over Wine…
I’ve been getting your emails. I’ve been trying my best to answer, and there will be no more coffee talk. We’re going to ‘Wine Down’ every Wednesday. The emails and DM’s that I get have spanned from what are the details of the wedding, to what’s happening with the book. Throw in some catering inquiries, travel and #MomLife questions, and why I’m walking like a weirdo and you’ve pretty much summed up my inbox. Don’t worry though, lol. I’m going to tackle most of these questions.
When Is The Date?
We have two dates for two weddings. One super soon, the other later. We’ll be updating everyone about that soon!
I saw your red dress on instagram and died! Details Please?!
I will be releasing all the details on that gem as soon as we get the photos. But it’s straight off the runway!
Are you having an engagement party?
No we don’t see the need for one. We’re so busy and in so many weddings, and we’ll be having our own parties relating to our own soon. We’re going to have a kickback though.
After seeing your red dress -HAVE MERCY ON US ALL! That dress is FIRE!!! Have you found a wedding dress?
I have not found a wedding dress, but I have an idea of what I’m probably going to get. I’ll be documenting that excursion on my stories, but not what I actually choose.
I am getting married and I’ve been looking for some cute casual white dresses for dinners and events. I haven’t found any I like. Have you seen any that you like?
I love your relationship with your fiancé! You two are so cute and so much fun. What is Ralph looking forward to most about getting married?
I’ll let Ralph answer this: I get to spend forever with my best friend.
MY DOMESTIC SIDE
You made some sort of seafood pasta that looked so good! Where did you come up with the idea for that?
Seafood and pasta go hand in hand for me being from New Orleans. It’s always a super easy dish to make. However, the crab and crawfish fettuccine is a hit. My friends keep posting it on their stories and the orders keep coming in!
Loved your post about seduction and design. Will we be seeing more design on the blog in the future?
My love is food and wine is one thing, but that will never exclude the love I have for fashion and design. I will definitely be posting more on that in the future.
What is the red lipstick you wear? I’ve been looking for a bold and striking red.
I will have a post on this tomorrow! Stay tuned.
I’m really excited for the book. Your recipes lately have been killer. What can we expect in the book?
So the book will be entitled Dinner Party Tonight. I’ll be having some awesome recipes and idea dinner parties along with desserts and design. I hope to have it completed by July, but we’ll see!
What are your must have kitchen utensils?
My KitchenAid stand as it’s always in use. Especially when the kids are cooking.
We are tea drinkers in our household so we can’t go without our teapot.
Kitchen towels are a must. I’m always cleaning, and holding things that require a towel.
My girlfriends and I love wine! Wine glasses are my necessity.
