My obsession with shoes continues. And I’m still ok with it!
Who knew that Birkenstock-type sandals would ever come back in style! But they are everywhere. And I looked at Nordstrom to get a pair of authentic Birkenstock’s. However, $140 – no matter how comfortable they are – is not in the budget. Thank goodness for Target! These knockoff’s were $23. And they are super comfortable. Lots of fun colors, but I got the cognac. Love them.
- Twilights Tomatoes
My husband picked these little tomatoes up at our local Shoprite. It’s hard to tell from the picture, but they’re bright red with green stripes. And they’re super sweet and crunchy. I need a crunchy tomato. Not soft. Crunchy. I’m the same with grapes. I need a snap, ya know what I mean? Hopefully I will have my own colorful tomatoes from very own garden in the next few months. Cross your fingers because I’ve never been able to grow tomatoes very well…. Here’s hoping this is my year!
- Fun Beverage Napkins
Along with an obsession with shoes, I also hoard beverage napkins. But not plain white ones, they have to be colorful and cute. And seasonally appropriate. I picked these tropical ones up at – where else – Target. I have some with pumpkins on them for Fall, Eagle green ones for football season, Christmas ones… I will not pour myself a glass of wine without a cute bev nap. I suppose that’s the Southern in me.
- Trader Joe’s Shisito Peppers
Shisito peppers can be really hard to find. There’s a short season for them and outside of a farmer’s market or Reading Terminal Market, good luck finding them. Insert Trader Joe’s. They carry sishito’s all year long! Never had one? They’re so fun! About one in every 10 is hot, otherwise they’re earthy and citrusy. Roast them, grill them or blister them in a cast iron skillet. Delish!
