Going to Mama's House

Every time I go over to my mom's house I end up coming home with a boat load of goodies. I stopped by the rents house today to pick up my Stella and Dot jewelry. It is so pretty! I love the way it is packaged so I must share.

 While I was there picking up my jewelry I also walked away with a few more things, which is pretty common when I go over there. Here are just a few of the things that I was gifted.

These cute little vintage ceramic piggy salt and pepper shakers.

I added them to my vintage ceramic collection in the kitchen

The first addition Cath Kidson catalog! I can't wait to look through it to see all the wonderful things.

And a shoe calendar for my Valentine's Day gift. I love it! I am going to learn so much about shoes and designers by the end of the year!

I have very thoughtful and very giving parents. I am very fortunate!

Since it is the Super Bowl and all and the big day is in my home town I wanted to cook something fun. Jeff and I love going to Stubbs in Austin. Not only is the BBQ great but it is also a fantastic live music venue. We saw Manu Chao there a few years back and it was a blast! So, to keep with my fun Super Bowl theme I decided to make Stubbs BBQ pulled chicken sandwiches in the crock pot. It is cooking up as we speak and smells fantastic. So, if you have not tasted the famous Stubbs BBQ sauce or marinades march to your local Texas grocery store and get some! If you are not in Texas you can order from their website.

I am also going to mix up a bit of Sangria to go with it! 

Now, stay tuned for my living room/hall way reveal. I went shopping this weekend for more things to complete the project. I am still in need of curtain rods and a rug. Once I get those things it will be a done deal. Hopefully in the next 2 weeks I will be done. So far so good and I can't wait to post about it!
