Hello there! First of all, I wanted to thank y'all for all the sweet comments on my Home Tour! Y'all are the best! I even updated my header with new, updated pics and put a "Home Tour" button on my right side bar so you can click on it at any time to see the full tour. I think my Home Tour was the biggest post I've ever done with around 60 pics!! Lol!
I also heard from a few of you who were able to get in on the $5 magazine subscription sale on Amazon that I posted about on Instagram. Yippee! I love using Instagram to get the word out about quick sales and steals and deals I come across. (I would have done a post on my blog about the sale, but it was a one day only sale and I know most of you get my posts emailed to you and by the time you got the email, the sale would have been over) Anyway, I'd love for you to follow along on Instagram. You can find me @texasdecor.
Anyway, today I wanted to share a few phone pics with y'all. A lot of them are of food (nothing new there) and some are just pics of what I've been up to.
Am I the last one on the planet to start reading Veranda Magazine? Oh my goodness, it is my favorite magazine now! (BTW, I used the "Pic Tap Go" app on the pic below. It has a feature called "lights on" that helps me so much with my dark pics. Check it out if you are into photography apps)
I just recently subscribed to Veranda and I look forward to its delivery like you can't imagine. It's one of those magazines that I find myself studying. You know, like, I'll stare at a picture for several minutes just taking it all in, studying it and trying to memorize how they styled a coffee table, what different elements they brought in, textures, etc. Love it! (It was also one of the magazines included in the $5 sale and a few of you were lucky enough to get in on that! Score!)
Okay, have y'all seen these Cotton Candy flavored grapes?
I heard about them and was surprised that my local grocery store carried them. They're a tad expensive, but so worth it! I was VERY skeptical, but you know what? They really do taste JUST LIKE cotton candy! I have no idea how they do it, but they're wonderfully good, and good for you!
I told y'all about my affinity for Fresh Market, right? Oh. My. Goodness. They have the best cupcakes! Just look at how yummy this looks! In my defense, I do have to say that I cut it in half and only ate half of it (for breakfast) and saved the other half for dessert. Calories don't count when you split them up like that, right? Right??? By the way, you can NEVER have too many sprinkles in my opinion. :)
Did I ever tell y'all I wanted to name little Holly cat "Joaquin?" I LOVE that name and really wanted to name her that, even though she's a girl. But alas, my boys wouldn't have it. Oh well.
She sure is enjoying my new garden stool as much as me. :)
Oh, Dollar Tree...you always seem to have something I "need." How cute is this little textured pumpkin?
So, we went to Sam's the other day, and look what hopped into my cart...
Do you SEE how many are in there??? EIGHTY FOUR, Y'ALL!! Why can't I have the metabolism of my teenage boys? I'm telling you, they can eat anything and remain tall and skinny. Lucky! (said in my best Napoleon Dynamite voice) ;)
Do you remember how I was complaining that my youngest son was spending around $9 a day for his school lunch? Part of the problem was the $3 Starbucks frappuccinos he was purchasing daily. Well, I took care of that with this 12 pack from Sam's.
They had a sale and they came out to about .90 cents a piece! Much better than the $3 he was spending on them at school. Now I can just send one with him each day and we're both happy. :)
Well, that's about it for now. Do you have a favorite magazine I need to know about?
Hope you all have a great day!
