Some Monday Musings

This weekend I received a message from a real cute new fashion blogger, Brighton from Brighton The Day.  I hadn't seen her site yet, but it's worth checking out!  A fun twist is that in each post she wears a pair of shoes from her Mother's new shoe line, Dee Keller.  Sweet, right?


I finally made the Trader Joe's Guiltless Brownies that have been in my cabinet for about 3 months.  Ummmm, why did I wait so long?  They're fabulous, and I knocked out a good portion of them last night during the Golden Globes.


And speaking of the Golden Globes here... I love Michelle Williams, but there was nothing right about that headband she was wearing (now on a positive note I liked her acceptance speech).  And after seeing Kate Winslet in her Jenny Packham gown, I'm even more convinced that I do need to buy this Alice + Olivia dress that I've tried on, being thinking a lot about, and dearly want.
It's Charleston Restaurant Week and this weekend we went to 82 Queen with friends and it was fabulous.  I tried their vegetable plate (something I would never normally order).  One of the items was spaghetti squash which is something I've wanted to try for like 2 years now - it was so good.  We're planning to make it this week.

{That's my cheesy "I'm so happy to be out of the house drinking lemontinis smile"}

On Friday I received the January J.Crew Shoe of the Month selection on my doorstep.  Color me happy it's a bright one :)


It's the Drea Patent Peep Toe Pumps in the color "Neon Peach".  They look like candy, they're that gorgeous. We're off to a good start this year!

And Psssst - My facebook fans already knew about this pretty delivery.
I share some fun stuff over there (like how I looked like a christmas ornament last week),
 so if you'd like to join me there too...

You must get the Alice and Olivia Dress. I totally agree about Michelle Williams- Matt and I were like what in the world is up with the dress and headband. I heart 82Queen. Their She Crab soup is amazing! If you make spaghetti squash let me know how it goes I have always wanted to cook it!

The trader joe's guiltless brownies are the best. My husband and I have been talking about taking a date night to charleston....spending the night and then coming home the next day--but stopping at trader joe's and loading up on the way home. Haha. Is that bad? We lived so close to one for so long--and we love it. That Alice + Olivia dress is beautiful. I actually think I like it better than Kate Winslet---although her dress is gorgeous too. Enjoy restaurant week--and those shoes!

Those shoes really are sweet! I am going to try on the Neon peach pants you talked about last week from Jcrew..I am taking Haislee to Vegas this weekend for her birthday. Phantom and shopping!

Courtney {a thoughtful place} said...

Those pumps are dreamy. Your big smile is so cute. . I know all about that smile! Happy Monday friend.

Morgan @ A Bright Idea said...

OMG, Chassity, spaghetti squash is a lifesaver! I think it's something ridiculous like 33 calories per cup? WAY better than pasta is for you and still so good. Love the shoes, the color is great for spring!

Aubrey {All Things Bright and Beautiful} said...

I absolutely love spaghetti squash! And bonus: it's so super easy to make (thus the fact that i have actually made it (c:)!

Gaby [The Vault Files] said...

Oh that Alice + Olivia dress!!! I'm dying! Kate was one of my favorites too and thought that Michelle needed to trade that headpiece for a delicate belt or something ;)
Love the shoes, especially the color!

Lindsey Regan Thorne @ be pretty said...

Oh I love the new blogger adorable blogger you just introduced me too... and the shoes! Amazing! :) She's a doll! When we have the chance to venture down to Charleston {our favorite place} we always have brunch at 82 Queen... their raspberry spritzer is by far the best cocktail I've ever had!

Lindsey Regan Thorne @ be pretty said...

ps... that A+O dress is calling your name! :)

Ali said...

That alice + olivia dress is pretty amazing and would look super cute on you. Also, I need someone to hook me up with the JCrew shoe of the month club next year, how fun to get a new pair each month. p.s. love the horse top.
