Lately, I have been getting lost in this blog, Tomboy Style. I've always loved the preppy tomboy look, probably because I was a tomboy. All of these lovely photos remind me of growing up in the late 80's it must have been the tomboy era. I grew up in West Palm Beach, sort of across the tracks from Palm Beach, and I would drive around Palm Beach admiring the beautiful homes and the beautiful people. I would browse the stores on Worth Avenue trying to look like I belonged there. This picture captures the essence of the perfect Palm Beach Polo scene, the boots, the Lacoste shirt, the Mercedes, the Louis Vuitton bag, so perfectly preppy.

My Mother is a hard act to follow. She has really mastered the holiday decorating and entertaining. She has this ability to take the easiest, simple dinner and make it special. She spoils my children and I and I will forever be grateful for all she has taught me.

"Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.” Steve Jobs
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” Steve Jobs

4 cans of Pillsbury biscuits
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup of sugar
3/4 cup butter
2 tablespoons on cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
For the glaze, mix all the ingredients in a small pan and bring to a low boil.
Cut the biscuits into fourths. Mix sugar and cinnamon and toss the quartered biscuits in the sugar/cinnamon mix. Drop half of the pieces into a greased Bundt pan or 10 inch tube pan and then pour half the glaze over the pieces in the pan. Then place the remaining pieces of biscuit in the pan and pour the remaining glaze mixture over the top of the biscuit pieces. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes. Cool for 5-10 minutes. Turn out on a plate and enjoy!
