Chianti

I’d forgotten how good a bottle of Chianti is. Excuse me while I wipe the drool from my chin.  My dinner tonight was a smorgasbord of “homemade” Red Lobster biscuits from a box, and shredded smoked chicken on a bed of spinach with ranch dressing. And this bottle of Chianti was delicious with it.  I’m…

DIY Window Banner for Nursery

This is actually not a Pinterest idea, but one we saw in a cute furniture store that we bought my nursery furniture at. And it’s super easy!  All you need is some string, and some fabric cut into strips. The fabric quarters you can buy at the fabric store are great. You can cut shorter…

Crafting Thursday: Pillowcase Dress, a Pinterest Success

I got a sewing machine for Christmas! I am so excited! I went to the fabric store the next week, and my lord, this is going to be dangerous! There is so much fun fabric. The projects are spinning through my mind so fast, I almost got dizzy in the middle of the aisle! The…

Wine Review Tuesday: Casillero del Diablo. 

I finally found it. My absolute favorite bottle of wine for years now. Casillero del Diablo.  Ok, ok, ok. The merlot is my favorite, but this cab takes a close second. Can I tell you I almost peed my pants with excitement when I found this bottle at Walmart! I need to remind y’all I…

Crafting Thursday

So I bought a cute little plaster kit so I could get a footprint and hand print of my 3 month old baby. It only cost like $3 at Hobby Lobby and looked super easy.  This was obviously not made for babies as when I pulled out the directions it stated they have to keep…

Wine Review Tuesday: Les Rocs de Plaisance Bordeaux

Bordeaux wine is produced in the Bordeaux region of France, at least according to Wikipedia (ya, not the most credible source I know). There are many different types of wines that come from this region including reds, dry whites and sweat whites. Apparently Bordeauxs are all about blending, usually having 3-5 varieties making up a…

Wine Review Tuesday: San Pietro

My brother in law was in town and cooked all kinds of fancy meals for us while he was here. He prepared us a steak one night with a sous vide… A very interesting little cooking device that I recommend you all Google. My steak was delicious. We paired it with a Chianti wine because…

Homemade Southwest Corn and Bean Packets

My husband used to love these southwest packs he’d find at Sams Club. It was a meal sized pack of black beans, corn, bell peppers and onion that was perfect to ad to any Southwest dish. Sadly we can’t find them anymore, so we decided to make our own. We truly enjoy making a lot…

Wine Review Tuesday: Stella Rosa Stella Rosso

While trolling the wine aisle at Winco the other night, this pretty bottle stood out to my husband for some reason.  We took this pretty bottle home, and I poured us a glass while he grilled is some dinner. We truly had no idea what to expect as we didn’t see an actual type of…

Queso and the Iron Bowl

Another Iron Bowl has passed and sadly my team this year did not win. We are die hard Auburn fans in this household as my husband went to Auburn. Saying those horrible words “roll tide” in our house is worse then dropping the f-bomb in front of the baby.  The Iron Bowl is the biggest…

Wine Review Tuesday: Girl & Dragon Cabernet Sauvignon 

Yoga Pants and wine got a remodel! I decided I needed to be more consistent with my posts and made a schedule that encourage me to blog more. So welcome to Wine Review Tuesday!  One of the best ways to try new wines is to check out the clearance section at the local grocery store…
