I am a huge fan of goat cheese. I know that not everyone is but if you do like it you must try this breakfast cheese spread. I saw it at Harris Teeter and it retails for $11.99 which I would probably not normally pay, but right now they have it on special for $4.99. I bought the Fig flavor and I have been eating it on toast every morning. It is also tasty on crackers! There are 5 different flavors. I think I will try the Honey one next. It is kind of similar to cream cheese and so delish.

I was browsing in JCrew yesterday and saw this beautiful stripped blouse. I love the kelly green and navy color combo. Since the New Year I have implemented the 24 hour rule for purchases where I really think about how bad I want/need the item. Well I can’t get this blouse out of my head. I am picturing it with skinny jeans, long gold chains, and high heeled booties. Sigh, it’s 24 hours later and I am still dreaming about her. I think I need to buy her.

I am convinced I need to wallpaper Sterling’s bathroom in this adorable whale wallpaper. It comes in three color choices: gray, blue, and aqua. I am leaning towards the gray. How adorable is it?

Ladies trust me when I say I will never have really short hair again (and I mean it). I did it once, along with going very dark brown (also a horrible idea) and will never do either again. That being said I am thinking about cutting it a little bit. I have the itch for a new do for Spring. I am smitten with Gwennie’s hair in this picture not to mention her color. Thinking about bringing this to my hairdresser in a few weeks. Dish- Love the long bob it or Hate it?

This quote reminds me of both my boys. LOVE.

I hope everyone enjoyed the long Memorial Day Weekend! We had a lovely time our friends! This is what I can’t stop thinking about this week:)

I love this show and I am so happy to have some quality TV to watch now that all my shows have ended for the summer.

Besides the talented dancers my favorite part is seeing what the gorgeous Cat Deeley is wearing. Her outfits are always incredible!

I got a sample of this at Neiman Marcus and I am smitten. I love it as much as I love the La Mer face cream. I am thinking about splurging and buying it. It really moisturizes and smells heavenly. The make-up guy told me I would see results in 10 days and I really feel like my eyes look better.

I made these this weekend and they were ridiculously good. We ate them all in one day! I am still dreaming about them. I will share the recipe tomorrow!

We finally made it to the beach this weekend and it was wonderful. Sometimes we forget how lucky we are to live 10 minutes from the beach. We had an amazing afternoon on Monday!

These pajamas are my favorite for my little man! They retail for $25.99, totally expensive for pajamas, but Costco has them for $11.99. The patterns are adorable and all you moms know how easy and great zip-up pjs are!

Have a fabulous Tuesday! Although it totally feels like Monday to me!
Btw is anyone else having trouble leaving comments on some blogs? It won’t let me sign in to leave comments, so frustrating!!
