It’s Tuesday and my sweet baby is still sick. A viral infection they say, so here’s to hoping he is a better tomorrow, because Mama hates seeing her little man sick. Since I have had little to no time for myself or to visit your blogs because I have been tending to my little one, this list will be short and sweet.

I met the wine rep for this wine at Harris Teeter last week. Of course he talked me into buying one of the wines he sales, but he was right, this wine is great. I was very impressed, it is a blend of sauvignon blanc and semillion. It is light, not sweet and crisp. It is my new favorite wine. You should totally buy some.


I am sure alot of you are familiar with Heidi Swanson, the author of the fantastic blog 101 Cookbooks. I recently got her cookbook and it is great. I have just been reading it (I know I am a nerd that reads cookbooks before I use them)and have not actually made any recipes but they all look amazing and so healthy. Heidi gives great tips for cooking with grains, substituting flours etc to make your meals healthier. A few things I can’t wait to make Kale Salad, Quinoa Patties, and Cauliflower Soup. I will warn you she is a vegetarian so there are no meat recipes in this book, but there are tons of other delicious options.

Saturday before the farmers market my friend Alissa made us some green juice. A blend of kale, spinach, cucumbers, apples, parsley, ginger, and lemons and now I am hooked. The juice was so tasty and maybe it was in my head but I swear I had more energy that day. I know my girl Gwennie loves her green juice which makes me love it even more. Now I just need a juicer to make my own!

I admit it I am kind of ready for fall already. I mean who isn’t with these sweltering temps. I am a huge Missoni fan and these are two pieces I would like for my fall wardrobe. I think the flats would look fab with skinny jeans and a loose white blouse or fitted black shirt. I think the shirt would go with everything from shorts to wide leg jeans! I heart Missoni patterns and colors. These are two pieces I am sure I would wear often!

    Hope your little guy is feeling better soon!! That wine looks fabulous – maybe it has something to do with the beach house in the background??? ha ha I'm visiting my parents and my mom makes that green drink every day. She swears by it and says it will give you tons more energry. I need to get a juicer too!

    So sorry that poor Sterling is still sick!

    I must try that wine, and those flats would be absolutely perfect for fall. Even though I'm definitely not ready for school to start, I'm kind of longing for fall myself!
