Happy Tuesday Loves. Here is what this Mama is obsessing over this week!

{Btw check back here tonight, I am going to do my first Blog Sale. I am cleaning out the closet and will be selling some beauties.}

I have been on quite the Chardonnay kick lately. This is one of my new favorites. and for all you wine lovers they have it Costco right now!

I have honestly had a girl crush on her for a long time (like since Jenny from the Block Days). I am really loving her on Idol this season. Her outfits make me swoon and her make-up always looks flawless. I am also obsessed with her new song, its my jam.

Ever since I saw my girl GP in these booties, I have been lusting after them. They literally look good with every outfit! Sadly, I will never be able to afford them unless they are like 90 percent off!



I loved Emily Henderson on Design Star, so it is no surprise I am obsessed with her new show on HGTV. The girl has serious style and a great eye for decorating. I always love the way she puts rooms together from the paint color to the accessories. Here are a few of my favorite rooms she designed this season.

I just read an article where Jillian Micheals said this was her guilty snack. Sadly, my guilty snacks are usually Reese’s cups or Cheetos, but I thought I would give them a try. They are delicious! They are all natural and only have 120 calories and 4 grams of fat per serving. Sterling loves them too, so I feel like it is a healthier snack for both of us!

That’s right, because I am headed there next week for my sister-in-law’s Bachlorette party. I can’t wait, I have never been! Any suggestions are welcome!

    I love J Lo too. She is wonderful on Idol and I think she is flawless not to mention just a total sweetheart. I can't drink wine, (migraines), but Costco does have a huge selection, huh? Oh, Miami sounds fun. xo

  2. Tess says:

    I gotta agree with you and Debby about loving Jlo. Since she came on American Idol I have found her really down to earth, nice, and normal. She really changed my opinion of her.

  3. Jill says:

    well, I always love a good wine recommendation!! and thanks for the pop chips I will have to give those a try. Yes I love JLO too I think she looks better than ever.

    Have fun in Miami, bring lots of sunblock and be on the lookout for Marisol and Adrienne:)

    happy Tuesday

    You must go to the Delano in Miami. We styled our wedding after it … just very cool design. I think you would love it!

  6. I wish you had never ever introduced me to those shoes because now I'm in love! They are amazing.

  7. Alicia xoxxo says:

    Thanks for the wine recommendation! I went to the store the other day to buy wine for my mom's visit and I forgot what I even liked! I should have printed out the list of wine recs you gave us several weeks ago, but I wasn't thinking!
    Miami is great! Where are you staying? You will have a lot of fun!!

  8. megan says:

    I've never been to Miami but I am certain you'll have a blast! I'm heading to Wrightsville Beach this weekend for a bach party!

  9. Jessie says:

    We just went to Miami last weekend and my favorite part of the trip was a place called Taverna Opa. It had amazing food and was really fun!! I also second Alesya, the Delano is amazing.

  10. Christina says:

  17. Taylor says:

    Love those shoes – and you will love Miami! Beautiful weather always and so many things to do (and awesome people watching) – the one thing I had a hard time getting used to was dinner at 10:30 and parties not starting until midnight!

  18. Yes, yes, and *YES*!!! I'm going to have to try those popchips, but everything else is a big 10-4…and those booties are amazing…both the Sergio Rossi and J-lo's (c: hehehe! I've been drooling over every. single. one. of Emily's designs, they are so very amazing. If there was any doubt that she should've won Design Star, she has more than cleared that up by now! (c:

  19. I always look forward to your wine recommendations šŸ™‚ Miami is such a fun city and there is so much to do! I worked there for 6 months and had a blast! My favorite spot was the Delano Hotel! Lincoln Road has great restaurants, boutiques and of course people watching. South Beach is fun and there are so many good resturants on Ocean drive. News Cafe has really good breakfast. There are so many good Tapas and Cuban restaurants I can't even remember all the names! And the mojitos! Yum!! Make sure you make reservations..the restaurants fills up quickly on the weekends and don't be surprised when they say they have a 10:30 or 11pm opening. Like Taylor said it's common to eat dinner that late šŸ™‚ Have fun!

  20. Michaela says:

  23. Bud and Leo says:

    Have you ever seen the wine Mommy's Time Out? Such a cute gift for Moms! Love the booties, JLO's comeback and departure from Jenny from the Block, OBSESSED with Pop Chips! We did a promotion for them at work, so my office is filled with them!

  25. I absolutely heart JLO! Beautiful!

  26. Those shoes are fabulous! And I love JLo too šŸ™‚

    Speaking of Chardonnay! I've been LOVING Puerto Viejo's Chardonnay. It's a Chilean wine that retails for about $7 – $10 and is absolutely delicious! Chileans are apparently known for their reasonably priced, yet fantastic wines. I keep meaning to try other varieties, but always end up with the Chardonnay! It's too good!
