This wine is delish. I took a gamble picking it up and was so happy I did.  Retails for $15.99, onsale for $11.99 at Piggly Wiggly right now.  Go buy some it is excellent.


Love this dress!  It is such a gorgeous color for fall and as far as dresses go a good price.  It looks to me like so many DVF dresses I have seen but for half the price.  I could see myself wearing this for so many events this fall.


Big thanks to my girl Julia who steered me to this blouse at BR.  I really loved both colors so I set off to the actual store to see them in person. The blue was the only one available in my size and I actually loved.  Can’t wait to rock it this fall.  For the price this blouse is a must have!


I can’t wait to try this recipe, as I am obsessed with any and all hummus!


I adore this book.  We read it all the time to Sterling and love the quote.  This book is a great gift for any kids and if you have kids you should buy it!
