A Few of my Favorite Things!

When I get ready everyday whether it is for work or play I find myself wearing the same favorite pieces because of there versatility and comfort. The dress below is no has become an absolute favorite as are all the other items I am sharing with you today.
I purchased this at Ann Taylor Loft when they were having one of their 40% sales. Every time I wear it I get compliments. It has orange, pink and yellow in the fabric which allows you to change up your sandals and jewelry for a whole new look. At school I have beeen wearing it with a tan jacket and a brown braided belt.

A year ago I purchased these Miss Trish of Capri Sandals from Target. You can still find them and many other styles on e-bay.

This is the run swiftly tech short sleeve. I have it in a blue/purple. It pays to visit the store if you have one near you because sometimes you can find a good deal. When I purchased mine is was a return from the holidays and they gave me $20 off because it still had the To:/From: tag on it. I thought it was funny but the sales associate was a little embarassed.
 (There are similar necklaces all over the Internet)
This necklace represents three people who are very special to me and who have changed my life.

Today it was 54 degrees which is a little chilly after some of the 80-90 degree weather we have had. When it turns cold there is nothing I like better than to end my day with a bath full of lavender salts. These are my absolute favorite! I purchase mine at our local grocery store or our natural market nearby.

Apothecary Jars
I store my bath salts in here to make them look a little prettier.

I was in Bed Bath and Beyond buying a shower gift when my sweet tooth hit me. I only have to eat a handful of these and then I am satisfied. Love the dark chocolate. The boys ate them too!

My favorite sparkling water
I just add a splash of cranberry, blueberry and blackberry no sugar added juice and it makes for a very refreshing drink (Ocean Spray).

Mom's Potato Salad
My mom is the best cook ever. Even my children think so. When we were home for a visit over Memorial Day Weekend she made her famous Potato Salad. I am not ashamed to say that I had it at 9:00pm upon our arrival, with lunch and dinner the next day. It does not disappoint!!! 

8 large Idaho baking potatoes
2-3 Packets of Zesty Italian (Good Seasons) mixed and dry
2-3 Stalks Celery
1/2-1 Finely chopped onion (optional)
3/4 Cup Hellmann's Mayo
1tsp. Yellow mustard (to taste)
Boil potatoes, let cool and then peel and cut into small pieces. Chop celery and then mix with potatoes in large bowl. Toss with 1 mixed package of Zesty Good Seasons dressing, 1/4 packet of a dry Zesty Good Seasons packet and refrigerate overnight. The next day mix in 3/4 c. mayo, 1 tsp. yellow mustard and more mixed Good Seasons dressing if potatoes have absorbed most of the liquid. Add onion if desired (it was not included in the photo above).

Spending time with family........priceless.
