Good morning! Below are mish-mash of things I’ve found this week I thought were worth sharing! Enjoy! And have a wonderful weekend!
Creme de la Crumb Slow Cooker Jambalaya – Maybe we are missing Louisiana, but this recipe was a huge hit at my house! Everyone asked for seconds – even the picky red-head. It was super easy and made a ton. It’s going on my list for easy meals to make when company is over. (I entered this in to MyFitnessPal so let me know if you need the nutritional information).
The Balm Creamy Lip Stain – I LOVE this lipstick! It’s a lip stain, but goes on glossy. My issues with lip stains in the past is that they look so dried out. This one does not. I purchased the color “hola” and I think it’s the perfect pink to wear the rest of the summer. I have my eye on “aloha” or “namaste” for the fall.
“Something in the Water” – My fun summer read. it’s already been #1 on the NYT Bestsellers so chances are you may have read it! If you liked psychological thrillers then you’ll love this book. Interesting to note – the author had a minor role in Downton Abbey. Talented woman!
Funny Doormat – I just purchased this doormat for our new house. I’m sure it will get some eye-rolls, but it cracks me up. And shouldn’t you be smiling and laughing when you walk in your front door? Salt-N-Pepa will never go out of style!
vicicollection.com – Do y’all have that friend who if you don’t call ahead of time you will show up to the same event in basically the same outfit? That’s my friend, Erica. Our style is just similar enough that we could end up looking like twins on a girl’s night out, but just different enough to be uniquely ours. (Truth be told, she’s a little edgier than I am. I have a hard time pulling off edgy.) Anyway, a few weeks ago she asked me if I liked vicidolls on IG. I didn’t know what she was talking about so I quickly jumped on and saw their feed. I liked some of it, didn’t like some of it, but I wanted a new maxi and they seemed to have a good variety at a good price point. I purchased the dress you see below. I would say their sizes run a little large so size down. Isn’t my friend, Jessa, beautiful? She graciously agreed to model this dress for me.
They also have pre-orders. I have my eye on this convertible back-pack which is so perfect for a busy mom who needs her hands! The olive color is great for fall, too.
We are headed to our first Sugar Land Skeeters game this weekend and hopefully meeting up with some Greatwood families so we can start making some connections! What are your weekend plans?
