Cobb Salad Dip

Yes, you read that right.  Cobb Salad Dip. It's like Cobb Salad but even better.  I made this last weekend for a few of my girlfriends that came over while the guys were fishing.  We demolished the dip.  It is full of so many fresh flavors.  I picked up my corn and tomatoes at the Farmers Market and they were perfectly ripe and sweet.  You could also add an avocado to this but I was worried it would brown if we had dip leftover.  This is the perfect end of Summer dip!

Recipe adapted via Lemon Tree Dwelling

- 1 8oz package cream cheese
- 1 8 oz sour cream
- 1 package Hidden Valley Ranch Dip mix
- 3 ears of corn
- cherry tomatoes
- shredded sharp cheddar cheese.
- shredded romaine lettuce
- 3 green onions sliced
- cooked and crumbled bacon
- crumbled blue cheese
- salt and pepper
- tortilla chips or ruffles for dipping

Let cream cheese sit out and soften about an hour.  Mix cream cheese, sour cream, and ranch packet.  Spread in the bottom of any dish- I used a round one that I use for my tomato pie and quiche but any dish would work.  I bake the corn at 350 degrees about 10 minutes just to slightly soften it but you don't have to cook it.
Layer shredded cheese and the rest of the ingredients.  I like to end with the blue cheese and bacon. Serve with tortilla chips.

Scenes From Our Weekend

Lots of fun stuff this weekend.

First of all I finally found two matching tufted cane back chairs for our den.  I had been searching for a pair for awhile.  These are in execellent condition and the fabric actually matches our rug!  I was beyond excited.  Thanks to Rust Charleston (they have a booth at the Mount Pleasant Mall).  Liz gets in the best vintage stuff, check her out if you are local.

Friday night we went to party at the yacht club, but enjoyed a glass of wine outside before we left.
Wearing Topshop Dress
 We got to watch the storm roll in.  It was beautiful.  Then we had to high tail it home since we were on our golf cart.
Sterling always has the best time there with his friends.
Saturday the kids and hit up the Farmers Market while Matt fished in a fishing tournament.
I had the best breakfast | Green Garden Juice + Soba noodles with pork and a fried egg.
I got the most beautiful bouqet of flowers along with some delicious produce.

Saturday afternoon we met up with some friends and headed back to the Yacht to see how Matt and is friend Andy did in the fishing tournament.
The weather was not the best for fishing, it was super windy and really rough so sadly Matt did not win.  We had a fun evening anyways.

We could not stop laughing about our photo bomber in the back.  We had no idea who he was or that he was in our picture until we looked at them.

Sterling and his lady love, Julia.

Sunday morning was brunch at Hot Little Biscuit.
The grits are amazing.  It was my first time trying them.  I added pimento cheese, roasted tomatoes, and green onions- so good!
One out of two kids looking at the camera is a win.
Romper is old ASOS

Ended the weekend with homemade Smores Ice Cream sandwiches.  The recipe is the new Real Simple Magazine.

I can't believe Summer is over in 3 weeks.  Savoring time with these little ones.

Have a great Monday!

Weekend Style + Best Weekend Sales

Happy Saturday!  First I want to share a Topshop dress I recently bought.  I wore this last night to a party at our Yacht Club.  Topshop sizes tend to sell out quickly so I wanted to go ahead and share it!
It is embroidered and off shoulder-two of my favorite looks.  It runs on the large side.  I am wearing a size 4 it says (US 0-2) beside it.

My Vince Camuto Off Shoulder Blouse was just reduced to 40% off!  It is one of my favorite Summer tops.

A few great sales are going on this weekend.

Many purses are 60% off and a few new styles were added.  You can shop the Summer Sale Here

This is my favorite style just added.

Also love this bag, it would be perfect for Fall and now it is 60% off.
I own 2 of these, they are the perfect size for a night out.  I really like the ivory pebble grain because it would go with everything. 50% off.

I know everyone has been talking about the Nordstrom sale but prices go back up in a week and there are some great deals!!
I actually just ordered these, heard rave reviews about them.  I needed new running shoes by old ones were in bad shape.
The perfect longer Tee only $17.
Classic and timeless.  I received a Burberry Scarf for Christmas a few years ago and it is still one of my favorite scarves.
These are my favorite workout tanks.  I own four of them and wear them when I run. They are great!
Comes in 3 different colors.  Rebecca Minkoff purses are the best.  Great quality and I love this style.

Friday's Randoms

The Serena and Lily Private Sale started yesterday.  You can access the sale early HERE.
Love these Beach Towels 50% off.
These Hooded Towels make great baby gifts, also 50% off.
I just love these Seagrass glasses for Summer Entertaining.  Great fir wine, water or really any beverage.

These Tassel curtains are on sale in several colors.  We have the black ones in Frances Moon's nursery and love them!!
Several of my items from the Nordstrom sale arrived.  The Nest candles smell just heavenly!! I had never bought either of these scents before but they are so fresh and smell divine.   Rodney clearly approves too:)

Also part of the sale is this Tunic.  It is perfect to wear with leggings and skinny jeans and only $27. It comes in 5 colors.

I know the off the shoulder look is everywhere these days but I am still loving it.  This Topshop Dress has my name all over it.  That shade of green has been my favorite lately.

The new JCrew arrivals have me swooning.  I am thinking about ordering this Marble print blouse.

 I made one of my all time favorite recipes this week, Tomato Pie.  It is pure heaven.

I am comtemplating a Swell water bottle.  Anyone own one and what size is best?  I heard they keep your drinks cold for 24 hours and things hot for 12 hours.  I love this blue print.

Bubble Baths + Popsicles.
My sweet Frances ran a fever all day yesterday so we were trying to get her feeling better.  The Popsicle at least brought out a smile.

This picture Caycee took of my kids melts my heart.

I just started the new Dorthey Benton Frank book, All the Single Ladies and love it!  I have been into light,  easy reads this Summer.

You all know I love my Essential Oils (see original post here). They really never go on sale but for the next 3 weeks you can take $10 and $10 % for existing members.  Email neej29@hotmail.com if you are interested or want to place an order.
