T. G. I. F.

Yes, I’m still alive.  I know I’ve been completely MIA this week.  It’s been a really, really long one.  I’ve just been too mentally and physically and emotionally exhausted to post.  I’ve done some cooking, but I have some exciting things up my figurative sleeves that I can’t wait to share with you when the time is right!

Anyway, I do have a few very random updates for y’all today.

Remember my birthday wish list?

Well, I got the Living proof No Frizz Styling Cream.  And it. is. ah-mazing.

Living Proof No Frizz Styling Cream | Oysters & Pearls Birthday Wish List

Like, insane.  All of a sudden, after 27 years, I have the hair I always wanted.  The bumble & bumble styling cream I had been using prior to blowdrying was good… but this stuff is unreal.  My hair is silky and soft and it’s true.  It stays clean for like 3 days.  If that grosses you out, I’m terribly sorry that I’m not sorry.  This is the stuff I needed when I was 12 and had frizzy hair that my straight-haired Mama didn’t know what to do with.  If you ever, ever, ever deal with frizz – and if you live in the South, you know you do – purchase this stuff.  It’s pricey, yes.  But trust me when I say that you need it.  Every girl in the South East region of the United States of America needs this.

Olivia Palermo hasn’t steered me wrong yet.

That’s basically the most important thing I needed to tell you about today.  I can’t say it enough how much I’m in love with this goo.

Other things I’m in love with at the moment are my new Citizens of Humanity Rocket High Rise Skinny Jeans.  I ended up going with these Citizens because after much debate, I realized out of the jeans I already had, I liked my Citizens better than my Joe’s.  The Joe’s stretch out, and Citizens do not.  I prefer that lack of stretchy-ness, although I appreciate the stretch during the holidays.  However, the high rise makes up for the lack of stretch.  Plus, I have a crazy-weird long torso, so the high rise jeans just look totally normal on me.  Which is perfect.

Also, PSA: Piperlime has 25% off all boots at the moment.  I’m LOVING my Lucky Teddye boots.  Yep, I got them too.  Basically I’ve almost purchased all the times on my birthday wish list.  Sometimes a girl’s got to splurge, right?

Okay, here’s another weird thing.  Wallace has recently decided that he LOVES our jacuzzi tub.  He doesn’t like to be in it when there is water running, naturally, but he now has started begging me to run a little bit of water, then turn it off so he can get in and drink it and hang out.  Over the weekend Harold needed a bath, and Wallace got jealous.  The pictures I snapped really crack me up.

That is the look of one terrified puppy dog trying to make his escape and one very satisfied-looking cat.  And yes, I do keep my orchids in the bathroom, thank you very much.  They love it there.

To redeem Harold’s image, here’s an adorable picture of him sleeping.


And finally, I hate to end this post on a Debbie Downer note, but….


May Taqueria Los Sanches rest in peace.  It will go down in history as introducing me to truly delicious Mexican food and green jalapeño hot sauce.  I’m grateful for the vague instructions on how to make it, I’m grateful I learned that I love tacos al pastor, and I will miss this place greatly.  Please observe a moment of silence in memory of our favorite little taqueria.


I feel a little better now.  But still pretty sad.

What makes me feel better is tonight we are having dinner for Wheat’s brother’s birthday at their parents’ house, and then tomorrow is our cheese making class at Sweet Grass Dairy!!!!

Squee! Girl noises!  I’m SO excited.  While Wheat and I are making cheese, my parents are going to be at the Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival in Thomasville.  It’s going to be a busy day!  After it’s all over, we are going to come back to Bainbridge and cook supper and have a fire.  It’s officially fire season!  I’ll be back next week with real posts to tell you all about it.  Promise.  So without further adieu, I bid you Happy Friday!  Y’all have a good one.

Until Next Time
