How gorgeous are these beauties? I think they would make the perfect addition to the bar in our kitchen!

I will be the first to admit is hard to find cute boy shoes. When I saw these I knew they would be perfect for my little man. They are cute and everytime Sterling wears them we get tons of compliments. I will be ordering them every year from now on. They have them online right now at Piperlime in tan and dark brown. I love them both.

Here is Sterling sporting his

This is my new favorite snack. I bought the snack size bags of these for Sterling’s lunch and I keep eating them all. They are crunchy, salty, and have great flavor. If you haven’t tried these you must!

We have finally had some cooler weather here in Charleston and I am all about some scarves. I love this Missoni one, it comes in three fabulous colors and I really didn’t think the price was too bad for a Missoni item. The black and gray color combo is my favorite because it would go with everything!

When I saw this dip in last month’s Coastal Living it was love at first site. I made this dip twice in the last week. It is the perfect appetizer for a party or anytime. Everyone raved about this dish. I am so obsessed with this dip I would scarf it down right now at 7:00 in the morning. I recommend serving with Kettle Chips and adding more bacon than it calls for:) Print Recipe Here. You’re welcome because this will become your new favorite dip.

If you haven’t read the Eulogy Steve Job’s sister gave at his funeral you really should. What an amazing man he was. I got goosebumps reading this especially the end when right before he died he kept saying “Oh Wow, Oh Wow.” So inspiring. Read it Here.

    You know I have to run extra because of all of the dips you post, right? šŸ˜‰ it ia so nice to have lots of options for parties instead of just spinach dip-which I love, buy everyone makes. I think the grey and black scarf would be best, just like you said-it can go with everything. Missoni scarves were on one of the sale sites a dew weeks ago but I misses them. XO
