Thoughts For Friday

Oct 7, 2011

I am so glad it is the weekend! My sister is in town visiting and I couldn’t be happier!
I am beyond obsessed with this Vintage Chanel Purse. It is online at ShopBop right now and I can’t stop drooling over it! I am scheming ways I could get this beauty home with me. Santa are you listening??

I finally found a tie-neck blouse this week at F21 for $17! It is a great shade of purple and super cute for the price. Although I still want the Marc Jacobs Panther tie-neck blouse if it goes on sale! But for now I have am satisfied to have one tie-neck blouse!

I also picked up this cute blouse. It looks like a knit shirt but it is a blouse with a cute zipper in the back and great fit.

I am thinkinbg about ordering the large Jennifer Zuener Initial Necklace. I have the medium one with an “S” for Sterling but I like that the larger one has 3 initials and it shows up so much better. I have been so happy with my medium one, I wear it almost everyday so I know I would love the large one just as much!

The Instagram App for the iPhone is my new obsession. It is so cool what it can do to your pictures. Here are a few I did this week of Sterling. Love the vintage feel it gives them! You must upload it if you have an iPhone!

I can’t stop dreaming about these Cream Cheese Sausage Balls my friend Caycee made for our playgroup this week. They were amazing! I might just make them again this weekend! They would be perfect for football party or tailgate!

Tomorrow night we are headed to the Fat Hen for dinner. It is one of our favorite restaurants in town. I am already dreaming about what I want to order. Any locals have a favorite dish here? I think their burgers and French Onion Soup are insanely good!

Was that enough random babbling for your Friday? Have a great weekend! xoxo
