Add your favorite necklace that goes with everything and you are set.


Any blouse with a button down front is versatile in what and how it can be worn. Button it down regular for a classic look, button it midway down and tie the bottom for a more flirty approach, or wear it open over a tank top with a little lace! Bet you did't know one shirt had so many options!


Get in touch with your natural beauty with this neutral colored outfit. White washed boyfriend jeans are simple, so comfortable, and go with everything! The gray tank with lace trim accents nicely under the sheer, lightweight white blouse and can be buttoned multiple ways as mentioned earlier. To complete this look here are five easy everyday make-up steps to create a lightweight and neutral palette that enhances your natural beauty!


Now that you have thirteen basic items, looking through your closet to find something to wear will be simply effortless! What is your favorite basic item from GUG? Comment and tell us for a chance to win a $25.00 gift card. The winner will be announced at 12:00 P.M. June 9th!

On Wednesdays We Wear PINK!

What is pink? To some, it may just be a color. To some it is the universal color of love. To an artist, it may just be a mixture of white and red and nothing more. To a psychologist, it may mean the giving and receiving of compassion and love. It may stand for feminism and romance, kindness and empathy, or respect and admiration.

To a woman who has survived breast cancer, it is the color she gains strength and hope from.

“It represents strong, courageous, fighter, empowered, educated, faith, warrior and every other characteristic that helps us survive." -A Survivor

Today, we will be featuring some of our breast cancer items. Women do not stop fighting this disease when October ends, so let's spread some awareness with these GUG pieces!

You've got your outfit; now all you need is a special desert to bring to that Memorial Day Party!


Ingredients

1 - 16.5 oz package Pillsbury refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 - 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
1 - 8 oz container cool whip
Fruit for decorating

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Prepare a mini muffin tin by lightly spraying it with cooking spray.
3. Roll Sugar cookie dough into 3/4" balls and drop 1 per mini muffin cup. (There is no need to spread the balls of dough in the muffin tin. They will rise and fall to make the perfect little cups for your filling.)
4. Bake for 6-7 minutes.
5. Remove for muffin tins and cool completely on a wire metal rack.
6. In a medium sized bowl whip the softened cream cheese.
7. Add the cool whip to the cream cheese and beat until nice and smooth.
8. Fill cookie cups with the mixture. You can do this by placing the mixture in Ziploc bag, cutting off the tip of the bag, and piping into the cookie cups. Or you can just use a knife to spread the mixture in the cookie cups.
9. Decorate with fruit.

Notes
- You can bake the cookie cups a day ahead of time, but I recommend not filling them until the day you are serving them because the cookie will get soft.


Comment us below why you are proud to be an American for a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate to GUG! The winner will be announced on Tuesday May 27th at 12:00 P.M. CST

Meet Morgan....

Meet my friend Morgan.
We have known Morgan for a number of years through livestock shows and her family is very special to us. I haven’t had the chance to get to spend a lot of time with Morgan until she and her mom recently vacationed with us. While Morgan loved showing livestock to an extent, I knew that her heart really lies with Special Olympics. Morgan has competed in Special Olympics for eight years traveling all over Texas to complete and as far away as Lincoln, Nebraska for the national games. This girl is dedicated I tell ya and she loves sports! She has competed in volleyball, softball, bocce, basketball, track, bowling and golf but her specialties are table tennis, soccer and flag football. In fact I learned that her best chance at going to the national competition is in flag football, bocce and soccer.
Here's Morgan in action at table tennis.
Who doesn't love a medalist!!!









It’s no secret that one of my favorite vacations is a cruise. We live so close to the Port of Galveston that we cruise as often as possible. Carnival offers a great weekend cruise for great prices. Morgan and her mom joined us when we went on a weekend cruise earlier this month. It just so happened that our cruise was during the last of the summer Olympic events. While cooling off in the pool Morgan and I had a very nice conversation about the Olympics. It seems that she was glued to the television during the whole event and can recount and discuss just about every competition. My favorite events are swimming and gymnastics. Morgan’s favorite events are the equestrian events and diving. When I learned that we both share water sports as a favorite event, I quickly amused her by stating that we were going to start a synchronized swimming team and start training on the spot for Rio in 2016. We will be called the "Carnival Cuties." She laughed out loud. But not as loudly as the other ladies in our group when I announced to them that they too were expected to be on our team.












Here's our synchronized swim team. We are a motley looking crew but we have a good time! We do need to work on holding our breath longer, not to mention we need to work on our moves! Maybe a Back Tuck? The Oyster? How about throwing in The Water Wheel?
Here's part of the team resting in the Gatorade Hot Tub....no it's not really Gatorade...but who makes a hot tub yellow?




No team is complete without a coach.....well maybe we should interview for a new coach?
He look's thrilled doesn't he? He spends his cruise vacation close to the ice cream machine. Oh and sitting by our towels, purses, chairs and floppy hats. Why didn't he put on the hat that matched his outfit? Men....geez!

What's your favorite Olympic event? Or make up a new one....Leave me a comment for a chance to win $25 gift certificate. Drawing will be on Wednesday night at 10 p.m.cst
