Happy Friday friends! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend in the works! We have yet another house showing, birthday parties to attend, and the Lowcountry Orphan Relief Gala on our calendar.
1. I'm not making light of the situation because I know so many people have been very sick and many have died from the awful Ebola virus. I actually think it's much more serious than our country is giving it credit for and that it's going to have devastating effects in the next few months. I did chuckle, however, at these funnies.
2. I usually put frozen cherries in my breakfast protein shakes, but I decided to switch it up and try making a pumpkin spice one. Yum! Combine 1/3 cup pureed pumpkin, 2 tsp pumpkin spice mix, 1 banana, 1 scoop protein powder, and almond milk. Blend until smooth!
3. I attended the Hampden Clothing fashion show with Caycee, Natalie, and Krystine (taking the picture) last night. As always, good times were had by all! There's a To-Die-For fur that was on the runway and I'm lusting over! I also love these shoes!
My Halogen Leather Shift Dress (on MAJOR SALE at Nordstrom Rack!)
4. I found this haircut on Pinterest and love it! I'm taking this to my main man Donnie Ray and asking him to make me really really blonde with this cut.
5. Speaking of hair, I switched shampoos and I'm head over heals for Toni & Guy! My hair is soft, shiny, and doesn't get greasy by the end of the day! Yay! This brand is also half the price of Biolage and Pureology. Score! I want to test out the whole line.
6. Because I couldn't stop at just 5 today, I have to share this recipe! Our friends Carl and Ashley shared 10 pounds of fresh, local shrimp with us. I made The Barefoot Contessa's baked shrimp scampi with it. Oh my heavens. You have to try it! I served it over pasta with a side of crispy roasted asparagus. Unbelievable!
Linking up with Amanda again today!
p.s. Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice? Because I have a huge soft spots for homeless people (the real ones, not the scam artists who do it as a weekend gig). There's always the same man standing at the base of the Ravenel Bridge and East Bay Street. He has a sad sign that says he's a disabled Vet and can't get work. I usually don't look because it makes my heart hurt too badly. I gave him a few dollars yesterday on my way downtown and he was so gracious and humble. He also said "I hope you know how much I hate doing this." I cried because I have so much and am often so ungrateful. I cried again while telling the story to my friends. I can't imagine living one hour in that man's shoes.
