I know it's all feast or famine over here at SHC-world, but sometimes, you just gotta share. Joining Hallie for the first time EVAH to share all the things I love...
Avocado and bacon. Has there ever been such a heavenly pair?
In the morning, I like to have avocado, bacon, and one egg on a piece of toast. HEAVEN. Tonight I got super creative and made mango/black bean salsa (mango, black beans, lime juice, pepper, tomatoes...yum) to go over pork + bacon tacos topped with avocado. So easy, so good.
Monogrammed floppy hats.
like this fancy one off Etsy (ignore the ugly Tennessee colors - Vols, ew).
Is there anything to make the beach more glamorous? I am still not feeling, er, exactly in bathing suit shape, but I have the feeling I will
waddle walk along the beach with confidence if I doff one of these pretties!
Seagram's Sparkling Seltzer Water.
As much as I'd love to drink something bad for me all day, I can no longer ignore that aspartame could really be killing me not-so-softly and I should probably take care of myself. Since Italy gave me the ability to finally like sparkling water, my pick is Seagram's (usually can find coupons) - it's cost efficient, no calories, no aspartame, but mucho fun (at least, as much as you can have in a can). Plus, it's not regular water, which sometimes has the habit of getting on my nerves.
I don't own one (yet...Mothers Day is coming...HINT HINT HUSBAND) but they are so adorable, so chic! I have all but given up on jewelry with babykins now becoming grabbykins...but maybe this will save me from a life devoid of accessories (this and some clip-ons).
I have read almost everything the man has written. He writes historical fiction about the lives of saints. Basically, he reads everything available on the saint, including their writings, and then writes a novel version of their life. I have found them invaluable for several reasons: a) they're not dense at all and very simple to understand, which is great since I'm reading them in snatches as I nurse throughout the day; b) they give real context to the lives of the saints which helps me to better understand their denser writings; c) they inspire me more than reading a 'devotional' book might.
So far, my favs have been Lay Siege to Heaven (Catherine of Siena) and the Spear (about Longinus, the soldier who pierced the side of Christ and later converted - whose statute is in St. Peter's, bee tee dubs).
