Holy Cow. That's all I have to say about this. It's the best thing since sliced bread, and light bulbs and all other things that we really can't live without! Valerie has been talking about it for awhile and I finally found it in my local Natural Grocers...I will now be sending all of my money directly to Noosa and they will in return, be sending me that value in yogurt:) Ok just kidding but it is super good. Like, unbelievably good. Oh, and it's good for you at 140 calories and 6 grams of fat per serving. This stuff is dangerous! It's like Crack!:)
That's my favorite comparison by the way. If something is addictingly good then I immediately refer to it as crack. It is up to my sweet hubs to figure out which form of crack I am referring to at the moment as it changes almost daily. I think I'm a secret foodie. Although since I just admitted it I guess the secret's out!
Whatever. Off topic! Go buy some Noosa and fall in love! I will be eating mine for breakfast, lunch and dinner and snacks too!
Oh and one last plus...only $1.95 a tub! That means my crack is CHEAP too! ;)

As if a J.Crew blog wasn't great enough on its own...I also just discovered that Madewell has a blog as well! Be still my heart! I have an ongoing love affair with Madewell that just won't quit! Go forth and be inspired! :)

ps: Not sure what has happened to me and my posting! I have been a slacker! I promise to be better and post something with a bit more fluff in the near future!

The Countdown has Begun!


In our house, we have officially begun the countdown to college football! College Football Live is officially back on our TV schedule, and I am already planning tailgating food/fun! Can't wait! We take our football very seriously here, and with a pitiful season like we had last year we have much to look forward to this season (I hope!)I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they start my preferred quarterback this year rather than using him as a back up:)

I am also planning on ordering this beauty from TruColors! Love it! So darn cute and perfect for game day. Although I think that I will sadly be wearing shorts and a Nike Tee for the first game or two unless my dreams of a cool September come true! Even at six o'clock kickoff for game one there is the potential for 100 degree heat! Not sure I want to subject that pretty dress to such icky conditions:)

Either way I am SO ready for football season!

Happy Friday! Hope y'all have a lovely weekend, with lots of fun and cool activities planned.

Pretty Puppy

I am totally in love with this print by Kelly Rightsell! I think I need it for our living room! So whimsical :) There are a few different print options so you could do a set! How cute would that be? Especially in a dog loving house like mine!

If it was finally Fall...

I would be all over this outfit! I am counting down the days this month and waiting anxiously for September! I have convinced myself that September is going to be our magic month for cooler weather:) My sweet husband is going along with this (I think to ensure that I don't lose my mind in this heat!). The only sort of positive thing about this hot summer is the fact that indoor play is the only way to go unless you're at the pool. This means lots of dress up, tea parties, painting and coloring with my girl. That is most definitely a positive in my book.

Speaking of my girl, this Monday she had surgery for an umbilical hernia. She's bouncing back like a champ and is, I think, thoroughly enjoying the pampering that she is getting! She has been encamped on the couch playing with the Ipad and is coloring pictures faster than I can find places to display them:) All in all, it's an ok way to spend this first week of August!

Oh and my outfit up there...I would have to do a bit of substitution, seeing as my little budget doesn't leave room for such purchases as a 1,300 dollar sweater;)
