Do you Rue?

I promise to be a better blogger sooner than later. Too many things going on and a lot of traveling on top of it has kept me from regularly posting. At some point I would also like to get to the new issue of Rue...


Have you had a chance to browse through it? What were your favorites?

Appetizer Inspiration

Well, we have a jam packed weekend with the in-laws in town. I feel like I am constantly making the same recipes for guests so I needed a couple new appetizer ideas to cook up on Friday and Saturday and what better place to go then Pinterest!


These caught my eye and if I don't get around to making them this weekend I will be in the near future adding them to my menu...



I made them last night and they were a hit!


I know it is a classic but I have actually never made it!

I love the waffle fries for dipping!

I know these apps seem a bit heavy but I also plan on serving hummus with veggies and endive spread with chive cream cheese (I got that idea from a friend...so easy!)

Do you have any new app ideas that I need to try?

Have a wonderful weekend!

Cupcake Stuffed Strawberry?!?!

I was surprised when I saw this title on 1 Fine Cookie and wasn't sure how that would work. Jasmin did an amazing job of photography the fun and unique process.

Looks good to me!

These would be perfect for a children's birthday, baby shower or bachelorette party!

Mindless Monday...My Sunday

Last week was not one of my best weeks so I am sorry for the lack of posts. It didn't help that Blogger was down for a bit either. I did have a fabulous weekend including a busy Sunday! 

 I attended a baby shower that had beautiful flowers and these yummy homemade Hostess treats!
I always make time for my pup Ryder!
My sister Maureen and I worked all weekend on a scrapbook in honor of my sister-in-law, Sarah. I have briefly mentioned her on the blog (here and here) but unfortunately last week she lost her battle with breast cancer. She was an amazing woman and I will always miss her. I am taking this book to my brother and nieces next week and hope they enjoy it as much as we do.
We had an impromptu family dinner last night with our sisters and I made Italian Sausage & Cheese Tortellini soup. It is a favorite in our house and as I was making it I realized that it was a recipe my sister-in-law, Sarah gave to me. It was the perfect meal to have while working on her scrapbook and to wrap up my weekend!

Mindless Monday...Vogue

I finally saw the movie Water for Elephants yesterday and loved it! Robert Pattinson and Reese were wonderful and it was actually a little darker than I had expected.

Reese is stunning in the May issue of Vogue. Her fair skin, bleach blonde waves and long satin dresses were flawless.





I also enjoyed The King's Speech last night. It deserved every Academy Award it received. 


Did you see any good movies over the weekend?

My weekend away...

I am trying to get back in to the swing of things after my long weekend at a cabin in Blue Ridge, GA. The weather and scenery was beautiful! Eating, playing games and relaxing took up most of our time but we did make in to town for some shopping.






How was your weekend?
