New *Notable*Favorite

It's Friday!!! Yay!!!  And for the record, yes, even stay-at-home-moms celebrate Friday.  You know why?  Because that means daddy is home with us, which equals (for me) another set of eyes, ears and hands in dealing with these kiddos.

Because it's Friday, I thought I'd do a quick list of my week's new/notable/favorite things.  I haven't done a "Favorite Things" post in quite some time, so here we go...

{New*Notable} Okay, this summer has been the summer of wine.  Let me elaborate.  I am a wine lover (check the bio), but I've really only been a regular drinker of reds...Merlot, Cab, Pinot Noir, Shiraz (hubby's fave), etc.  Well, when the weather turned hot warm this year, I decided that I would make an effort to get to know some white wines.  And I'm not talking Reislings and Moscatos (come on, who doesn't love those sweet little guys).  So in my quest, by trial and error--I've found some favorites.  Looks like my favorite whites are Pinot Grigio and Vinho Verde (Trader Joe's sells an awesome one).  I like these whites because they are crisp, with slight fruity undertones and not too dry.  Anyhoo--I happened to be grocery shopping the other day and stumbled upon a rosé Vinho Verde.  Now I can't say that I think it tastes that much better or different, but hey it's a pretty color, so I'm for it!

{New} While in Marshalls, I picked up this tea you see here.  Have I ever mentioned, that whenever I'm shopping in TJ Maxx/Marshalls/Ross that I LOVE to check out their little "grocery" section?  They always have the most random/odd/cool but tasty stuff.  Too be honest, the sexy packaging caught my eye which is why I grabbed this "slimming tea".  Hey, even though I'm already slim, I'm always on the look out for things that will help me stay that way.  I saw that it was an açaí berry tea--which is what really peaked my interest.  I'm sure you know all about the whole açaí berry craze.  I have to admit, it has a girl curious.  Anyway, I'll be sure to keep you guys posted as to whether this stuff gets me any slimmer.

{Favorite} Last, and certainly not least, literally--this is the most expensive thing in this post...  LEOPARD BOOTIES!  I'd happened to be perusing some online shopping sites, when I happened upon these Sam Edelman leopard print calf-haired booties.  I don't know, they just spoke to me.  What did they say, you ask?  They said "Nik, you need us..."  A few days later, the UPS man came a' knockin'.  Yea yea, there are PLENTY of leopard bootie options out here.  I chose these because...let me not lie to you all--the heel is only 3 inches.  So, I know they won't have my dogs barking within a couple hours.  These days, I haven't really found too many 3-inch heels sexy, but these I feel are because the leopard adds so much "drama" to the boot.  Not to mention, I kind of like the "retro" vibe the heel gives.  Let me tell you, I will be wearing these with EVERYTHING.  You have been warned.

Hope you all have an awesome weekend!
