five on friday

five things i'm loving this week . . . 

1.  i can finally end my search for a glittery hair barrette (trust me, it's harder than it seems)!!!  even though i really wanted a gold one, i guess silver will do.  i found it in the children's section at target.

2.  i couldn't tell my inner floridian "no" when she wanted me to buy this during a recent trip to a nearby market.  in my eyes, you have not lived until you've tried smoked mullet.  it's kinda a delicacy in florida . . . right alongside boiled peanuts. 
3.  ^^these cute flats that i ordered from modcloth!  i can't wait to get them. . . they're perfect for a summery outfit that's just a little too fancy for sandals or wedges.

 4.  i made this delicious fast and easy hot onion dip recipe from chef in training, for margaret's goodbye party this past weekend.  it is one of my favorite appetizers to make for parties, not only because it's delicious, but it literally is so fast and easy!  it only contains four ingredients, and bakes in 30 minutes.  i like to serve it with crackers and crostinis.  it gets serious raves.

5.  i'm in the process of re-styling our coffee table . . . i found the perfect "oddball object" while shopping at z-gallerie!

i hope you all have a fabulous weekend.  i'm looking forward to doing a whole lotta nothin'!


  1. I have definitely been found guilty of purchasing hair accessories in the children's section. No shame.

    Love the lil octopus! CUTE!

  2. Found you through the linkup. That hot onion dip looks amazing! Making my mouth water!
