Sew Girlie

monograms!
I love things with my initial on it.
I am lucky that "S" is easy to find...

While blog stalking last week, I found this site

Isn't this the cutest glass ?
(they even gift wrap for free)


I ordered this glass for my friend
Her name starts with a "Y"
She has a hard time finding her initial on things

Didn't it turn out dahlin' ?

Wine Snob Confession #10

Davy Crockett Wine
Found this at the World Market
for $12
Fess Parker aka Davy Crockett
had a winery in California
He recently passed away

My dad grew up watching  
Davy Crockett

His birthday was Friday
so I brought this wine for Friday Night Steak Night
It is a really good red wine

It went perfect with our steaks

Liberty of London Bike @ Target

I was flipping through O Magazine, and I saw this bike.
I immediately went to Target's website -
they are SOLD OUT
(they just came out March 14th)
so I "googled"
and found out that this is the lastest craze
I am on the mailing list with Target when they get more in -
but
i
really
want
one
bad

Four Seasons Farmers Market @ Firewheel Mall

unlike last weekend's excursion
They have produce, meat, fish, breads, soaps, purses, herbs, flowers, fresh eggs, etc
I cannot wait to go back
Here are just some of the things I bought ~
Strawberry Mango Salsa
&
Pineapple Banana-Mac nut Salsa
with Chocolate Chips
Culinary Lavender
(cannot wait to use it - I've seen recipes for cookies and lemonade)

Red Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing
and
Portobello Mushroom Pasta Sauce
WeMe Bread and Everything Sauce
(Everything Sauce contains - almonds, nutritional yeast, sesame, garlic, lemon, vinegar, olive oil, salt)
I was a little hesitant - but this stuff rocks.

I also got some of her fresh eggs

Finally, produce
just look at those jalapenos...
tonight is time for some stuffed jalapenos
