Thoughts For Thursday

Thank you Pinterest for directing me to this super cute mint blouse for, wait for it, $23 plus free shipping.  You are welcome ladies.  This silky number is going to look perfect with my skinny jeans this fall.  You can get yours HERE.

Thanks to all you girls who told me about Reality Steve.  Have I been living under a rock??  He has all the secrets to all the reality shows I love.  If you aren't reading his site you should be.

Spoiler alert, he claims Emily and Jef are engaged.   Sorry to all you Arie fans but I could tell as much as Emily liked kissing him (how many times did they make-out Monday?)  I felt like she felt awkward around his family.   Also does it bother anyone esle that Jef only spells his name with one F??  Even the autocorrent on my phone has a problem with it when I tried to text a message about him it added another f.  He does genuinely seem like a sweet nice guy though. 

 Speaking of the Bachelorette.  I love this Maxi Dress Emily was wearing on her date with Sean.  I found out It is by Rory Becca but I cant find it for sell anywhere online, if you know where I can get my hands on this beauty let me know!

Found a new breakfast I can't wait to try out.  English Muffin topped with Tomato, Mozzarella and Hard Boiled Egg.  Looks simple and delish.  Although lets be honest I would cover mine in way more cheese than that tiny sprinkle of mozzarella.

Check out my latest Ebay necklace score- thanks to my girl Anna for alerting me.  These necklaces are only $6.  Of course I needed the black and mint.  You can order one HERE.

It has been hot as heck here. Thank God for our baby pool.  We have been using this daily!

Greek Salsa

Looking for the perfect healthy appetizer?  Well look no further.  I made this tasty treat for the 4th of July and it was off the hook good.   I knew we would be eating hot dogs and hamburgers which are pretty heavy so I wanted to make a light and healthy appetizer.  This is packed full of flavor and it is all veggies.   If you are a Greek Salad lover like me then this will be your new favorite snack.  This would also be amazing as bruschetta served on fresh baguettes!  Serve with Pita Chips and Bon Appetit.

3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups diced ripe plum tomatoes (about 3)
3/4 cup diced, peeled, and seeded cucumber (about 1/2 a cucumber)
1/4 cup minced red onion
1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic
1 small yellow bell pepper, seeded and finely diced
1 cup (4 oz) crumbled feta cheese
1/3 pitted kalamata olives, finely chopped
2-3 pickled hot cherry peppers stemmed and minced

Combine all Ingredients in a bowl and mix gently. Serve immediately with pita chips.

I love this slouchy little dress.  The mustard color is perfect for now and then you could totally wear it through the fall with boots and a cardigan/blazer.  Best part it is only $80!!  A real steal for such a versatile dress!

I am obsessed with Srirachia on anything.  This popcorn makes me drool.  It will be made this week.

In keeping up with my Obsession with all statement necklaces, I have set my sights on and ordered this beauty. 
If you are a stalker like me you might have noticed Kris Kardashian Jenner's assistant wearing it on keeping up with the Kardasians.  I love it paired with stripes!

It also comes in white which I love too!

I am seriously contemplating wallpapering our hall bathroom and replacing the mirror with something more fun.  Have been thinking about this for awhile,  but as y'all know I get lazy when it comes to tackling projects.  This bathroom makes me swoon.  I love the wallpaper and the mirror!  Total inspiration for what I want to create.

So, true and important to remember.

CopyCat Outfit + Weekend Happenings

Happy Monday Friends.  I hope you had a nice relaxing weekend.  Matt took off the days after the 4th and it was so nice to have him home with us for a few extra days.
 We have now dubbed this weekend,  the weekend where everything we owned broke down.  Here is a short list of things that broke this weekend:  Both cars broke down within 24 hours of each other (seriously we did not leave the house all day Sunday bc we had no working car) , our remote broke (TV watching sucks sans a remote), Sterling broke his Eames Rocker, Front Porch Light, and Kitchen Cabinet door.  We had to just laugh at one point and pray nothing else breaks!  Sigh, and now its Monday. Back to Reality and waiting on estimates on both cars.  Fingers crossed we can afford what comes our way!

Ever since seeing Miranda Kerr in this JCrew top I own I knew I wanted to try and recreate her look.  What I would really like to recreate is her legs- how perfect are they?

Here is my version.  Why I chose to recreate a Victoria's Secret Model's outfit don't ask me- of course she looks way better in her outfit than I do,  but I gave it a try!  She does however have me convinced I love the idea of booties with shorts.  ( I still feel awkward posing solo- who feels comfortable doing this?)

In other news,  we hit up the Farmers Market Saturday and finally tried the Vietnamese food booth.  The tacos were amazing; we totally went back for seconds.  Between Matt and I we demolished 5 tacos.  I highly recommend the pork ones, out of this world good.  I am still dreaming about them!

I have managed to avoid the Jump Castle slide every week at the Farmers Market but this weekend Matt and I gave in and bought the tickets for Sterling to do the slide.  He loved it.  This picture makes me laugh because he was so happy and completely spread eagle.

Made a sweet cheese tray.   I never tire of a cheese tray.   My sister and I stumbled upon the most perfect flavor combo.  Fresh figs drizzled with truffle oil and honey topped with blue cheese.  Make it you won't regret it.

Spotted Dolphins on our family boat ride!

Ended the weekend swinging with my sweets.  He is growing up way too fast!

Thoughts For Friday

Have ya'll heard the rumors that Emily and Chris Harrison are dating?  I don't know what to make of this.  Wondering if it is true or a publicity stunt.   Supposedly she ends up with none of the guys on the show this season and is currently with Chris.  And Chris did just separate from his wife of 18 years.  I could see Emily liking Chris because he is famous and wealthy.  Hmm, makes you think...... 

We had a stellar 4th of July.  We grilled out with some friends and watched the fireworks downtown.  Managed to snap one family picture.  I love that Matt is covering his privates because Sterling kept kicking him because he did not want to take a picture!

 I went all out and got very Patriotic with my outfit this year.  And of course I start off any holiday with my favorite drink,  a Lemon Martini.  You can see the pure excitement on Sterling's face over my outfit. 

Gotta love a holiday sale.  I snagged this dress I have been eyeing forever, finally for 60% off!  Nothing makes me happier than leopard.

I am officially obsessed with The Lumineers,  they are my new favorite band.  Similar to Mumford and Sons.  ITunes them, I promise you will love the song "Ho Hey."  I downloaded the whole CD and it is all I want to listen to.  I highly recommend!

I made these pesto pizzas for dinner last night.  I substituted Mozzarella because the hubs does not love goat cheese and they were amazing!  I used pre-bought flat bread (ie. Naan) and just layered with Pesto, Tomatoes, and Cheese.  Bake and Enjoy.

I am so proud of my girl, Britney.  I feel like she is really trying hard and getting her life together.  She has been looking gorgeous lately!  I miss the "Slave for you" days.  Can't wait to watch her on the X-Factor.

I have put alot of thought into this and if I could have dinner with a group of celebrities it would be: Anderson Cooper, Kelly Ripa, and Neil Patrick Harris.  Call me crazy but I think this would = the best night ever.   I have been obsessed with The Silver Fox forever and I love me some Kelly and Neil.


How adorable is this precious little boy?  It has me convinced I need a pair of Kelly Green boat shoes for Sterling!

 Have a great weekend!
