snacking (on)// There's no doubt about it. I've been on a cooking spree recently. Everything from homemade cinnamon rolls to Angel Pork Chops. But as far as snacks go, Cousin Mirya showed Alise how to make s'mores in the microwave while she was in Alabama visiting for the week and so, that's pretty much her staple go-to snack these last few days of summer.
anticipating// I can. not. WAIT for Stephanie to get home! She's been gone the entire summer playing basketball in another country and I'm ready to see her get off that airplane and bake her a cake to celebrate her birthday!
borrowing// My collection of rose bowls have been depleted through the years due to breakage by either the maid or my precious daughter. Later this month, I'm planning on borrowing some of my mother's rose bowls for a wedding shower that I'm hosting. My rose bowl collection began at my own bridal luncheon nearly twenty-three years ago at a local tea room and Wayne has kept my collection (somewhat) alive over the years by gifting me with them on special occasions. Stay tuned for how I plan to use them later this month.
admiring// I'm crushing on crushed velvet this fall! A local boutique has begun getting in their fall shipments and I think I've bought just about every blouse they've had in the velvet style. Love, love, love it!
purchasing// This past weekend, I decided to try a new foundation and a new mascara so I bought both. I plan on doing a product review soon, so stay tuned!
Happy Wednesday, Loves! Friday is almost here!!
