Twas the day before next when all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even a doggie.
Leroy and I were nestled all snug on the couch while visions of treats danced through our heads.
Leroy in his collar and I in my socks had just settled down for a long afternoon of studying.
When what to my wondering eyes should appear but a miniature brown van and a delivery boy!

He brought me checkered Keds!  So exciting for a Monday.

I found them on Haute Look and they were less than $20 if I remember correctly.  Who could say no? Leroy's a sucker for a deal.

No hands is extra cute.  Sometimes a guy just needs to warm his paws.

In honour of Will and Kate's new baby (congratulations, you crazy kids!) I thought I'd post a photo of my baby.

Now I'm going to muster up the energy to go to the gym and study for the rest of the night after that... Oh, energy.  So hard to come by.

I'm back at home after (another) rotation away and back to eating my regular foods.  Today I decided to try something new inspired by Emily at Cupcakes and Cashmere.  I cut a peach in half, drizzled it with some olive oil, and hubby grilled it on the BBQ.  Then I fried some swiss chard in a pan (I think the first time I've ever eaten it) with olive oil and salt and pepper.  I plated the swiss chard first, then added grilled chicken breast, peach, sprinkled some unsalted peanuts around the plate and finished it off with a drizzle of honey and lemon juice.  An incredibly healthy supper and very yummy.  I will definitely be grilling fruit from here on!

I thought I'd do a little post on what to wear to a wedding this summer.  Last summer we had five (!) weddings to attend and this year we only have two.  And since I don't know my schedule for two days from now, I have no idea if I'll be able to go to them.  And I have no money so I'm not buying a new dress... But maybe you'll be a wedding guest with some money for a new purchase!

Option 1: alice + olivia.  Tracey sleeveless peplum dress in pink. On sale!  Find it here!

Option 2: Tibi. Velocity dress in pastel multi.  More expensive but oh so pretty. Find it here!

Option 3: BCBGMAXAZRIA. Abigail evening dress. Find it here!

Option 4: J Crew. Louisa dress in silk chiffon. Find it here!

Some cute options if you're on the market for a new dress!  I wore the same dress to all of the weddings we attended last summer.  It's pretty and no one besides hubby and I ever knew, right? :)
