Weekend In Five

Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend! My weekend consisted of a ton of errands, two naps (I needed them- badly), and making and photographing two recipes. I was a busy girl, so I only have five highlights for ya today...

1. I wanted to give you an update on the photo that I entered for Giada's de Laurentiis's Facebook photo contest. Giada chose and announced the winners last Thursday.  No win here. A 10 year old girl actually entered the same dish I made. Her mom photographed it for her. She won 2nd place. Her photo was really good. 10 years old... Oh well, better luck next time and thanks so much for your votes! Much appreciated!

2. I started the weekend off by getting a manicure. Manicures make everything better and I needed it to help me get over my busy week. The color is Clutch Me If You Can by Essie. Love it.

3. I had an extra wreath and finally found a place for it- my headboard. Now this made me feel better...

4. I almost ate an entire bag of these this weekend. I LOVE LOVE LOVE these blue chips. They are made by Food Should Taste Good. They are all natural, gluten-free and contain only a few ingredients- all of which are healthy and recognizable. I like them with salsa or topped with a slice of turkey and pepperjack cheese. Try them. The jalapeno chips taste fabulous, too...

5. I got this cute vase at TJMaxx over the weekend for a grand total of $3.99. I love it! I used the candy canes for the recipe that I will be sharing tomorrow for Natasha's linky party, so make sure you stop by!

Happy Monday!

  9. I LOVE the idea of hanging a wreath on your headboard! That way you drift off to sleep with the smell of Christmas in the air. How brilliant are you!
