My Costume

For Halloween I wanted to dress up as a totally rested, extremely organized, patient mom who has finished all her Christmas shopping. I checked on line and at all the local stores and it seems like no one as ever heard of this mom. 
So that leaves a witch or an Indian.
I've been a witch several times recently so I am going with the Indian. 
I am going to wear Cricket's dress that she got for Christmas years ago.


I think Santa was desperate for gift ideas that year. And doesn't Cricket looked thrilled? Some things never change.
 If you wave to me and I don't wave back it is because the dress is too tight and I can't lift my arms. But hey, it's only for a day so I am going to work with it. My fringe boots are so handy on a day like this...
Enjoy your sugar high!!

Have You, Would You, Did You?


Kaviar in a tube!

Have you ever tried Kalles Kaviar?
Translation: Caviar in a tube!! This is either the most brilliant idea ever or a bad, bad mistake. I am going with the glass half full approach. Anyone tried it? You can order it here but it comes in a six pack which could be a whole lot of bad. I read about it here.

Would you wear white denim in fall or winter?

You should!!



Did you read The Color Wheel?
Not yet? No problem, you can still order your copy here.
It is getting rave reviews from all my friends who have read it!!

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

I don't usually post recipes because well...most recipes are too complicated and have too many ingredients. Maybe I have ADD but if I see more than 5 or 6 ingredients my mind starts to wonder...like wondering if I should get take out. But recently I saw Jessica Seinfeld on Good Morning America and then again in my People magazine. She's got a new cook book out...


Thought this looked interesting and since one of her recipes was featured in People I decided to give it a try. 


Jessica Seinfeld's Skillet Chicken As Seen in PEOPLE

If you don't count the salt, pepper, water and olive oil it only has 5 ingredients and it cooks all in one pot. 
I made this all by my little self and it was delish!! 
5 out of 5 stars and super easy. My kids even liked it and 13 year old twins and a 5 year old are a pretty tough crowd. 

If you give it a try let me know what you think...I hope you like it as much as I did!!

I Went to the Furbish Fall Flea and Lived to Shop Another Day

So...the Furbish Fall Flea was a big hit!!
If you weren't there you must be the only one who missed because the place was crazy!!!
The whole day was a little crazy, it was a last minute decision to go so my apologies to my Raleigh friends who I didn't get to see. And I had to change my outfit at the last minute..you know how that can throw you. It was a little rainy and Pocahontas doesn't like to get her shoes wet.



 When we finally arrived at Furbish at 11:00 on the dot there was already about 75 people in line ahead of us...


Getting a little closer to the tent and all the action. I thought there should have been a special line for people who were crazy enough to drive from Wilmington and lacked youth and patience...maybe something to keep in mind for next year. 


Worth the wait...lots of great art...



Action shot inside the VERY crowded tent




And the less popular line to pay....




Some of my loot. 
Nothing big but lots of little goodies including some stocking stuffers.




And a close up of my favorite new clutch.
It was a fun day but when I say it was crazy I mean bonkers!!
I had to come home and take to my bed.
I did get to meet one of my super cute readers, Kate J. from Raleigh, which totally made my day!!
Did anyone else go? Were you overwhelmed?

Urban Myth


 Do you know what is in this box? Every Domino ever published.
They live under my bed in a box to protect them from dirt and destruction.
I still look through them and still find inspiration. 
It's been fours years since a new issue came out until now!!
Yes, it's true. I thought it might be an urban myth but I got my very own copy yesterday. 




It was such a special day I splurged and had a Peppermint Patty while reading...
It was a very good afternoon.
Have you gotten a copy yet?
