Lately Tommy and I have been addicted to subscription services, a variety of them as a matter of fact. We’ve been using Blue Apron [which is a subscription food/meal service] and recently I signed up for Stitchfix [which is a clothing service & I’ll post a review on it when I receive it], as well as Ipsy [makeup/beauty products] and Birchbox. Birchbox is similar to the Ipsy subscription, however it provides the availability of a monthly subscription for men too! I received MY first Birchbox [Tommy’s should be coming in shortly], and I have to say… for $10.00 a month, it’s totally worth it; the element of surprise is what gets me! You fill out a style/personal profile and they deliver samples of products directly to your home. You have the option to purchase the products directly through the website if you like it. And… the box itself is obviously adorable!
I am ready for my box next month! Try it out here!

We travelled today to Broken Bow, Oklahoma to stay the weekend with a large group of friends for a birthday celebration. Being the freelance wine connoisseur that I am [insert sarcasm here], we stopped at Girls Gone Wine to try it out. Oh my! What a cute, little [but not so little] shop & bar! Free wine tasting of all of their wines [and wine-a-rita]… Super friendly staff & great atmosphere. Definitely worth the stop!
I’m more of a sweet wine drinker – not really into the dry wine – although I’ll drink it for a buzz if necessary. So, I found one of the best sweet wines I’ve tasted – Twisted Sisters! AND… Only $12.95. I will be stopping in each time I go through there.
I can never find any snacks that aren’t just completely filled with trash & have been looking for a healthier alternative. I am absolutely in love with the Good Thins Sea Salt & Pepper. I have tried all of their other flavored snacks & this is by far my fav. Around $2.00 at the grocery store and super delish!
I am a sucker for cookware, bakeware, anything kitchen related, really. About 4 years ago I purchased a Target exclusive cookware and bakeware set from Giada De Laurentiis. I fell in love! I had been so used to using cheaper cookware and didn’t really have an appreciation for them until I found Giada, and hers wasn’t even an “expensive” set – I believe I paid around $199 for a 10 piece cookware set, and then of course I bought all of the bakeware separate. I had invested about $600 with everything that I own.
Fast forward to the saddest day; Target DISCONTINUES her stuff!
It is now time for me to think about purchasing a new set. I want to get the same quality or better of what I currently have. I did my research and I have found this 14 piece Calphalon set at Bed, Bath & Beyond for only $299! I’ve used Calphalon in the past and it really has a great quality!
Happy Friday Friends!

Tommy and I visit Branson often, and when I say often, I mean at least once every couple of years. It is one of my most favorite vacation spots. While we are there, we like to visit The Spice & Tea Exchange that is along the Branson Landing shopping strip. Browsing their website recently, I found this Summer BBQ Sampler pack [only $19.79 too!]. We have tried their spice rubs, salts and sugars and they are absolutely amazing. If you get a chance to go into one of their stores, do it, you get to smell, taste, and browse their collection. Tommy and I could spend hours in there! Anyway, this sampler pack includes a Backwoods Hickory Rub Spice Blend (1 oz), Carolina BBQ Rub Spice Blend (1 oz), Smoked BBQ Rub Spice Blend (1 oz), Smokehouse Rub Spice Blend (1 oz).
Spice up your summer barbecues with this sizzling Summer BBQ Sampler! A great variety of barbeque styles; add these delicious spice rubs to meat before grilling and try on ribs, pulled pork, chicken, brisket, and other many other barbecue favorites!
Grilling outside [in Texas] right now is almost impossible due to the heat wave that seems to start at 8am and doesn’t let up until 9pm, however, when it cools off at night, we will be grilling some steak and chicken using this Summer BBQ Sampler pack! You can even order online and have it delivered directly to your house! Order yours today!
I wanted to start doing something FUN weekly with my blog so I have decided to start up my Friday Find. Whether it be food, clothes, home decor, furniture, places to go, etc… if I find it, and it’s worthy, I’m posting. 🙂 To kick it off, I found this super cute Marrakech Swing Chair from Urban Outfitters on sale for only $179.00! It would look absolutely •PERFECT• hanging from my back porch. Maybe I can talk Thomas into purchasing it. Christmas list here I come!
