Marley Lilly App

I learned about Marley Lilly this week from my coworker. It's a free app and is so cute! You can create wallpapers with your monogram for your iPhone.

RED Wine-OH!

New, inexpensive wines I tried and liked!

This wine is cheap but doesn't taste cheap! It's a malbec and costs between $6-$9 bucks!

Another good one, I've been loving red blends....still a good price at $12.

This cab is delish and can be bought for anywhere between $10-12!

Cupcake - Red Velvet was surprisingly good! I always see this and with it's cute name wanted to try it! You can get this at $8-10 bucks.

Friday 5

1. I am loving this J.Crew jacket!

2. I am also loving this lightweight merino tunic sweater from J.Crew. It must be popular because they used to offer it in a lot of various colors but now you can either get blue or gray. A friend of mine was wearing the light pink one a few weeks ago and it looked so pretty and comfortable!

3. As of December, I do needlepoint! These aren't my ornaments but I am making something similar to these! Except mine are New Orleans themed! I am going to have a mini New Orleans themed Christmas tree this year!!!!

4. Love some of this Chandon champs on the weekend or just when I feel like spoiling myself!

5. Have a great weekend!

I ate a pint of Talenti ice cream (gelato - same thing) last night.

It was the butter pecan ...... YUM. Although the Salted Caramel is my absolute favorite. I do want to try the Simply Strawberry next!

My "book club" came over last night. I hosted this month and did a Mardi Gras theme. There are 10 of us in the group but only 6 could make it. And boy did we make it a party! I think I counted 5 bottles of wine in my recycle bin! WHOA. Needless to say, today is gonna be a long one for this girl! haha. Is it 5 o'clock yet?

NEED this in my life!

Check out these darling iPhone cases on the Lipstick Shades website! I NEED one of these! I can't decide though because they are all so cute but I like the two above the best.... at least as of today. LOL I keep dropping my phone lately and my Kate Spade phone cover has totally chipped off! This is being added to the bday list - ASAP.

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup whole milk
1/4 cup sour cream
Dash of Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup blue cheese crumbles
Salt and pepper

Cooking light - Chicken cutlets with mushrooms and pearl onions

I tried this recipe from cooking light out last weekend and we both loved it. Instead of regular flour I used gluten free flour. It was a bit of a pain to make so I wouldn't recommend it for an every day meal.
