The Southdowns area is an older area in Baton Rouge that is located between Perkins Rd and Bayou DuPlantier. It is also between the University Lakes and Pollard Estates. To make it easier to find, it's located to LSU and Downtown Baton Rouge. Even though this neighborhood is older, it has continued to rise in value due to homeowners having maintained their homes. Did you know that some of the Southdown homes are within walking distance to University Lakes? University Lakes is  so beautiful. It really adds warmth to the neighborhood. A fabulous neighorhood in Southdowns is Southdown Gardens. The subdivision was built in 1999. There are about 23 homes in the neighorhood. It is located between Acadian Blvd and College Drive.  I'd say that the coolest thing about the Southdowns Area is Mard...

The Highland Road area is simply breathtaking. It really is a fabulous area. I love driving down Highland and looking at all the beautiful trees that stalk the road. For some reason, it always reminds of of the movie "Steel Magnolias". Where is Highland located?  It runs through College, Siegen and Essen Lane. There's nothing like taking off on a beautiful Sunday to go house looking on Highland. Personally, I think Highland is home to some of the most prettiest homes in Baton Rouge. There have been many times where I go out of my way to ride down Highland just to bask in the beauty. It feels like home, a little bit of country and city all in one. Highland Rd. seems to be home to older homes and neighborhoods. New construction didn't bypass Highland though. It is progressing and growing ...

It seemed like it was only yesterday that I was going to LSU and living the college life. Ahh, good times. I would come out and say that the LSU area is "Party Central" but you definitely have to be the type that doesn't seem to mind noise or cammotion. While there are probably a handful of older adults that live in the LSU area, I would say that most of the population are students. The LSU area has really grown in the past five or so years. While Nicholson (the main road heading to LSU) is packed with students and apartment dwellers, there are still several nice neighorhoods. New sites seem to be popping up all the time. There are several nice condo areas and also many townhomes to live in. Here are a few of the neighborhoods that the LSU area offer:ArlingtonCollege TownState StreetUni...

Have you ever heard of "Old South Baton Rouge"? If you have ever visited Baton Rouge, you might have passed right through it and not even known it. If you drive north of LSU on Highland toward Downtown Baton Rouge, you are in Old South Baton Rouge. Old South Baton Rouge is being reborn. It's an older side of town that is now being shown a great amount of love. Several organizations have gotten together to better Old South.The organization that has brought together many people to help Old South Baton Rouge is called "OSBR". It is a project put together to help the area between LSU and Downtown Baton Rouge.

                                APRIL 2008                             18432 North Lake Shadow Drive                                  The April yard-of-the-month award has been given to the home and garden at 18432 North Lake Shadow Drive.  A finely landscaped yard is highlighted with lantana, indigo, viola, and a variety of green shrubbery.  Crape myrtles make an early spreading canopy over a small garden with ceramic pots and a bench.  Evidently these crape myrtles were not trimmed back so they provide a fine addition to the spring garden.  Congratulations to the homeowners for a well-deserved award.

I honored my thighs’ commitment to Jenny Craig of Baton Rouge and showed up for my 2:00 pm appointment. While I would love to sit and chat about how much they weighed, it’s TOP SECRET! When I arrived at the center, I decided to be different and park on the opposite end of the clinic. I guess I should mention there were no available parking spots near Jenny Craig of Baton Rouge so I really had no choice. Isn’t it funny how sometimes we have no choice but to do things differently? So, while I’m making my way (differently) to the clinic, a new fancy boutique caught my eye. Fabulousness. I peeked through the window to see what kind of style they had and it definitely wasn’t my type.   While the boutique was definitely hip, the only possible way I could sport their clothing would be if I had...
