Threads Thursday: Wonderful Whites

Happy Thursday y’all! After the trip to New York I am LOVING white.  I am usually a color girl but I am loving this crisp neutral pallet.  You can easily add a pop of your favorite color or make a statement by going ALL white.  You can even mix white with winter white and it looks fabulous!  Here are some of the current things I am lusting after!

whiteiswonderful

Cotton Eyelet Spaghetti Strap Romper [Loft]- Rompers are all the rage and a great way to stay cool this summer.  I love the simplicity of this white number.

Amanda Logo Clutch [Tory Burch]- Great for an evening out and a classic piece!

Embellished Perfect Button Down [Ann Taylor]- The name says it all! Such a fun twist on a classic piece.

Peacock Cluster Necklace [Ann Taylor]- This great necklace is embellished and I love me some SPARKLE! Would go great with so many different outfits!

Floral Jacquard Jacket [Loft]- The structure of this jack is fabulous! Again another versatile piece that you should have in your wardrobe!

Mirror Embellished Top [Ann Taylor]- This blouse is so versatile and fun! You can dress it up with a skirt and blazer or down with a pair of skinnies…. Also, will keep you cool in the HOT summer.

Thea Chain Should Slouchy Tote [Tory Burch]- I love the structure of this bag with the hint of fun in the tassel! I have been obsessed with tassels lately so of course this was a pick for me!

Bubble Stretch Bracelet [Ann Taylor]- I love the fact this bracelet is stretch and not a bangle.  I have such small wrist that bangles tend to fall right off my hand! Love the gold and white contrast and would go great with so many outfits.

Striped Organza Skirt [Ann Taylor]- Y’all this skirt is EVERYTHING.  I have been ogling it since i saw it in a window display in NY.  So fun yet chic at the same time.

What is your favorite trend right now?  Do you have a staple white piece that you LOVE?

#100daysofhappiness: Days 85, 86, 87, 88, 89, & 90

It is that time again to update the good ole #100days of happiness!  After this adventure ends I will pick back up on more unique posts!

Over the weekend my oldest friend came to town for a visit! I have known Kate for over 21 years… sheeeeeeesh!  You should follow her blog Prairie Yuppie! She owns a ridiculously cute boutique in Stillwater, OK and competes in beauty pageants!  While she was here we ventured around Fort Worth, and  went to the Colonial! The quote below is our friendship… we could sit for hours and not say anything and be comfortable…. BUT lord knows we can chats each others heads off too!

True Friendship comes when the silence between two people is comfortable- David Tyson Gentry

Colonial was so fun! We had access to a few tents and the weather was perfect! We got to spend time with old friends and new friends and it was FABULOUS!

Belli [Facewash]-  No, I am not pregnant but I have been having TERRIBLE breakouts but I don’t want to start medicine or anything ridiculously harsh on my skin.  SO I have been searching for things that will help my face.  I LOVE the philosophy clear line but wanted to try something new.  I found rave reviews for this from NON pregnant people so I thought I would give it a whirl! And I LOVE it.  Doesn’t smell and really gives you the fresh and clean feel! It really has reduced my break outs… right now I only have one pimple…. a month ago i had so many I couldn’t even count them all!

Cherry Coke Zero is a serious problem I have.  I love it and it really does help curb my coke cravings especially in the summer when I crave it even more! Cue Rascal Flatts singing Mayberry.  I don’t drink it everyday but I like having it around when I am have a sweet craving!  SO YUMMY!

Kate and I decided to treat Mark to homemade breakfast after he put up with us hung out with us all weekend.  Omelets and bacon… can’t.beat.that.

Also, I have gotten to take advantage of working from home and some amazing weather by laying out with my laptop in hand!  I LOVE it! Stay tuned for a blog post about the highs and lows of working from home!  Should be funny…. at least for me.

Hope y’all had a fabulous weekend!

This update seems to have a lot of food pictures! Enjoy!

-I tried out a new bacon wrapped chicken recipe…. and it was a success!  As I have said before my recipes are sometimes not done by measurement.

Preheat over to 375. Butterfly chicken breast. Stuff with a few blobs of cream           cheese and chopped onions.  I also added some fresh herbs from our garden (oregano and thyme).  Wrap with bacon and secure with toothpicks.  Bake for about 40 minutes.

-If you haven’t downloaded the time hop application, do it!  It is fun to see what you posted about so many years ago! Mine alerted me to a post I had about moving to Texas 4 years ago! Can’t believe how fast time has flown!

Tory Burch was having a seasonal sale! I purchased a pair of Reva’s and Flip Flops.  I will post pictures once they get here! So excited!!!

-Last post I talked about the Betty Crocker Ultimate Brownie Mix.  Well on the back of the box they had a recipe for brownie bites.  SO I had to try.  I followed the recipe EXCEPt it said it made 42 bites… I only made 32 and they were the perfect size!  I also made some homemade peanut butter icing:

8oz cream cheese- room temp

1 big scoop of margarine (about the size of a stick of butter)- room temp

1/2 cups peanut butter

1 cup sugar

1/2 t vanilla extract

Mark took these to work and they were gone VERY quickly! So yummy and bite size!

Casey and I went on an adventure to shop and to see Zac Efron without his shirt on a movie.  We met when we worked at Texas Motor Speedway for Speedway Children’s Charity.  So we got a laugh out of taking a selfie with the TMS pace car.  We used to get to drive those all the time….  They are fun and FAST!

-Mark was out of town so I tried a new breakfast. I fried an egg, cooked some lunchmeat ham and melted cheese on a “slimmie” bagel.  Turned out so yummy! One of my favs now!

#100daysofhappiness: Day 50

Well I am halfway through my project…. and this has been more challenging than I thought!   Today is tax day and while most people dread this deadline when you are married to a CPA who is in the tax department you are so excited when it comes.  It means I have a husband again!

This little cute Snoopy cartoon makes me smile because while I don’t like taxes it pays the bills 🙂
