I’m so excited for the Super Bowl this weekend. Normally my husband and I have a party.  This year we are going to keep it low key and a friend of mine is coming for the weekend with her daughter.  We’ll just watch the game the three of us.  She is a really good cook so I know we’ll have some yummy food in order! Below I listed one of my new favorite recipes that makes a great snack for events such as this! 

The outfit I’m wearing above is totally something I would wear to work for a more casual day at the office. I love the two tone shoes because they add so much more interest to black pumps.  The top is a great weight for wearing this time of year and it is stripes so we all know that is right up my alley! I hope you have a great weekend everyone!

Pomegranate Seed Pretzel Dip


1 8oz cream cheese package
1/4 cup powdered sugar (start with a little less and then add more if needed)
1/4 tsp vanilla
Pomegranate seeds

Use an electric mixer to mix the cream cheese, vanilla and powdered sugar until smooth. Drain the pomegranate seeds (I get mine from the Target produce section) and fold them in with a fork to the previous mixture.  Then serve cold with pretzel, I normally get the flat kind.

Can it just be Spring already???? It’s been so cold here in Minneapolis! I just want it to be warm already.  I’m trying to pretend like we’re getting nice warm weather in my cute little pencil skirt.  I love this floral pattern with the black.  You could totally dress this skirt up or down.  A white silk blouse would look amazing with it too.  I hope you’re all staying warm!

Jewelry…

Jewelry is the best way to dress up any look. It’s so easy to do but can be frequently overlooked.  Number one I just ordered a week ago in the medium size in gold. I got LT instead of LJT. I also am on the waiting list for number four as well. Number six may look like something you’ve seen before but the price is much lower than others I’ve seen. Hopefully, today’s post will inspire you to put on a cute accessory before you run out the door.

Because it’s 80 somewhere…

It is so cold here in Minnesota. I braved the cold yesterday and went to an event at the Parc Boutique. I may have gotten frost bite but it was worth it.  Hopefully some of you are getting to some warm weather locations this winter.  I swear that the only thing getting me through winter is knowing that I have a trip to look forward to.  At least today it’s supposed to be a heatwave and make it to 37 degrees!  So I’ll be by the pool rocking my maxi dress with that kind of weather!

One of my nieces, Maria, is two years old.  She loves ketchup.  My sister will not just let her eat straight ketchup so she uses things like fries, pickles, etc. as vehicles to get it past her mom and into her mouth.  She will just lick the ketchup off and then dip it right back in.   My sister recounting this story of her from dinner last night made me think of certain things I buy just to accessorize with scarves.  I love scarves so I seem to always buy basic shirts that can be paired with them.   J.Crew makes some of my favorite basic tees.  The pictures above are from my daughter’s six month photos, previously seen here

Work it out…

If you’ve been following along with my with my blog you know that I just got done running a Marathon. For me running is a huge part of my life.  Sometimes I do need some motivation to stick with it.  So signing up for races and getting new running clothes keeps me going.   It’s sad to say that getting a new running shirt makes be want to run more but whatever works I guess right??? Anyways here are some of my favorite running clothes right now!



Lindsay…


Running Tank – I love this because it’s a racerback and breathable material.
Hair Ties – They don’t leave marks in your hair after you take them out. 
Running Capris – Really comfortable and keeps you tucked in. 
Shoes – I love bright color shoes.
Hat – I frequently run in hats.  I like to keep the sun off of my face. 
Running Shirt –  I love this looser fitting running shirt.

Pullover…

 Shirt: Caslon, Jeans: AG, Sunnies: Valentino, Boots: Sorel


I had such a busy week this week. I am so happy it’s Friday.  I’m so looking forward to getting to sleep in tomorrow! I was on the wait list what seemed like forever for this sweater.  I was so happy when it finally came.  The color and the neckline are perfect.  It’s really easy to dress up or down.  When January hits, I feel like I’m wearing the same sweater day after day; so it’s really nice to get one that’s a little more unique without being a bold pattern.  Stay warm everyone!
