Thoughts For Friday

We have a busy weekend coming up. We have house guests, my sister is in town, and the hubs is running a half Marathon in Kiawah. I desperately need to finish my Christmas shopping too!

This week I have been baking the Oreo brownies I blogged about Tuesday and assembling tins for my friends. I think they turned out pretty cute! Every year I always say I am going to bake treats for friends and never get around to it, so this year I started early so I would have time to get it done!

I am pretty much obsessed with the White Fudge Oreoas. They are amazeballs, knock your socks off good. They only come out at the Holidays so go pick up a box before they are gone. You will thank me!

This guy definitely loved the Oreaos.

My JCREW cobalt Blouse came and I love it. The sleeves are little more sheer than I thought but I still really like it. The fit is great, it runs pretty true to size for those wondering. I wore it to our girls Christmas Supper Club last night. I paired it with an old Bib Necklace from Banana Republic.

A few of you asked about the back view and how the buttons look- so here is the view from the back.

I just picked up Thomas Keller’s Cookbook “Ad Hoc at Home.” I saw a great special about him on the CBS Sunday Morning show a few weeks ago and have been obsessed with him ever since! This cookbook is so informative and has great recipes.

I hung my Sally Benedict Painting in Sterling’s room and love it. It makes me happy every time I walk in there!

My little man is so ready for Christmas and loving the cooler weather!

Have a great weekend!

    The bib necklace really adds a festive pop to your new blouse! Banana has always had great jewels. Your son looks precious in his reindeer antlers. Happy weekend.

    Lots of comments here: Good luck Matt!! If y'all want lunch afterwards, Rosebank Farms Cafe at Bohicket has awesome fresh food from their farm. The best fried oysters I have had in years! Second, I may or may not have completely demolished a box of those white fudge oreos this week – oh the horror! They are so good. Love the blouse on you. Happy December!

    Love the shirt. Also, if you are a covered oreo fan you need to try Trader Joe's candy cane joe joes covered in dark chocolate. They are AMAZING

    I love Thomas Keller and have the Ad Hoc cookbook. Ad Hoc in Napa is one of my favorite restaurants! Dinner or brunch, it's all amazing. Last time I was there it was for brunch and it was just delicious.
