Happy Mother’s Day everyone! I hope you are all able to spend some time celebrating with the mothers in your life today.
For me, Mother’s Day is always a good excuse to enjoy a sweet treat. And this, my friends, is one of my favorites. I remember making it for the first time for my mom one year. She is the cook in the family, and although I always help, Mother’s Day is a time for me to take the reins on the meal.
I’m not going to lie – this is a semi-homemade treat. But it is completely delicious. It was born from my obsession with making instant pudding into mousse for dessert (instead of 2 cups of milk, you use 1 cup, then fold in 1 cup of whipped topping). I figured there was a way to take it to the next level, and this pie was the result.
It’s almost the weekend! I’m celebrating today by sharing another bottle of wine that won’t break the bank.
That wine happens to be Natura Sauvignon Blanc 2012. Right off the bat, I have to note that this wine is created from organically grown grapes – you have to love that! And, apparently I’ve been enjoying wines from South America lately, because Natura Sauvignon Blanc is from Chile, in the Casablanca Valley.
I’m not over my love for eyelet yet. Would you believe it…the dress I showed you yesterday is not the only one I added to my closet this season. Yep – I picked up another dress in periwinkle at T.J. Maxx a few days ago. I can’t help myself: I love the feminine touch of eyelet in an outfit!
Anyway, today I thought I’d round up an array of eyelet options (affordable, of course). From tops, to tanks, to dresses, shorts, and skirts, I’ve got you covered! Which would you choose?
Have you noticed that eyelet is just about everywhere in stores lately? Eyelet dresses, eyelet skirts, eyelet shirts – they’re invading clothing racks everywhere.
I’m not upset about it. There is something about eyelet that screams “summer,” don’t you think? I know it does for me. So, when I spotted this bright colored blue eyelet dress at LOFT this past weekend, I knew it had to be mine. I love that the fabric is such a bright color (not only is it blue, but the lining underneath the eyelet is a bright kelly green hue) – eyelet doesn’t just have to be a soft shade!
