Hello One and All!

Welcome to The First {OFFICIAL POST} of Miss Maggie Mae Kay’s {OFFICIAL BLOG}. Its taken several drafts for me to finally come up with a concrete plan, but expect it to change as time goes on. My mind is a continuous craze of brilliance and I hope the blog will match that quality to a tee.  So, without any more ado! I present to you The First {OFFICIAL POST}.

The Cutie of the Week:

For those of you who know me best, you know that I am hopelessly boy crazy. That said, each week I will present to you my Cutie of the Week.

This weeks cutie deserves a slight introduction, otherwise you may not know him at all.

I’m sure that if you’re anything like me, you’ve watched your fair share of Muppet Movies. I know I still watch them every chance I get. This weeks cutie is best known for his role in Muppet’s Treasure Island as non-other than the prepubescent orphaned hero, Jim Hawkins. Unfortunately, his prepubescent qualities (high voice being one of them) caused his character to be mistaken as a young girl often.

Today, Kevin Bishop is a British comedian with is own Mad-TV-esque skit based television show and has grown-up into quite the hunk. Those sparkling eyes that took most young girls’ breaths away are now coupled with a deeper voice and a nice patch of scruff on his manly mandible, and not to mention that gorgeous dirty blonde hair of his.

I am a sucker for the blonde haired, blue-eyed golden boys, so here’s to you Mr. Bishop. You are this week’s cutie.

Fashion Re-Do:

Now, for this week’s Fashion Re-Do, I’m going to have to use a personal experience. HOWEVER! Please send me your fashion crisis and I will help you to find an easy and inexpensive way to fix-it. You can find more information about this on the Be a Part! page, found on the tab at the top of the page.

So, onto the Re-Do!

A few weeks ago, while on Spring Break, I found myself in need of a large belt, the kind you wear at your waist. So how did I fix this fashion disaster (in time for my sister’s bridal shower the next day)? Simple!

I rushed to my closet and found an old purse that I hadn’t used in eons, took a seam ripper to the straps, cut a little here, sewed the halves together, and viola! I had me a cute belt!

Purse Belt- (Special thanks to Alysia and Nick!)

This one was a little more complicated, but if you like where I’m coming from, send in your disasters and I’ll help you out!

The Story:

As a writer, I have thousands of stories running through my head. One in particular has been in there for about three years and I need to get it down on paper. Each week I will give you an excerpt of the story. Feel free to let me know what you think! Just check out the Be a Part! page.

What it Means to be a Beaumont

By Miss Maggie Mae Kay

Preface.

It all started with a feather, white as snow and proudly worn. Then a young man, he stood a tall six feet and even taller given the pride of his stride. The sight of him was enough to make anyone turn a head, but the feather is what stopped the women in their tracks.

Matthew Beaumont wore a sign of cowardice upon his lapel with the courage of the most medaled soldier in the trenches. The women, with their baskets full of feathers, stared in astonishment unsure of how to take this. Just who did he think he was?

While they stared and wondered, one of them took note of his apparent bravery and at that moment, her blue eyes became ten times brighter. She dropped her basket to the ground, carefully picked the biggest of the bunch, and placed it in her hair. She then took the arm of the handsome young man, and shared in his pride.

This is how it all began. The first of the great Beaumonts, Matthew and his young bride Mollie took pride in their disgust of the war and their stress on equality for all. This extreme forward thinking became the tradition for the family, and to think, it all started with a feather.

To be continued….
