I'd agree with the trashy part if the parents I'm referring to weren't members of good New Orleans families. Some of the outfits probably cost $75-$100 each. Those smocking outfits found in Magazine and Met Rd kid boutiques are not cheap.
| O-T Lounge|| OT's Opinion on Dressing Kids Alike? - nikki6 on 10/27/13 at 2:38 pm|
I've been noticing on FB that a lot of parents are dressing their kids alike. I'm not talking twins either, but kids 3 and 4 years apart in age. Is this becoming a thing? I think maybe it's cute once or twice but I've got several people on FB feed who dress their kids alike for every single occas...

I bought a house almost a year ago for a little over $148k. It appraised for $155k. I got my homeowners renewal letter the other day which states I have replacement value at $179k. So basically if my house burns down, I get $179k to build a new one. Am I wrong in thinking that I need more than thi...

Dallas doesn't do Tex Mex all that great either but the State fair isn't about tex mex. Its idiots getting excited by fried butter or fried twinkies. "Have you tried the fried[insert random processed food]?it's amazing!"

I live in Dallas now and stumbled across this thread on city data dallas while looking for some info and its hysterical. These Dallas tools really think there is more to do in Dallas thanNola. A few are standing up for Nola but everyone seems to think you'll be murdered in Nola :lol:
