5 Things Friday

1. I added a "new taste" to my 25 while 25 list last week. I tried duck at a March of Dimes event! Eight of Oklahoma City's best chefs each prepared a course for the event. You read that right, it was an eight course dinner. Yum yum! Turns out, I actually liked the duck a lot.

2. I also added another recipe to my 25 while 25 list! Jilly taught me how to make her baked brie. Yes, that's yummy fig spread on top. We are definitely cheese lovers in our group of friends, so this brie was devoured within minutes.


3. All of the holiday catalogs have started showing up in my mailbox. I'm not complaining, but I am currently wanting all of these lovelies from Patagonia!

Oh, and J.Crew pulled me in too... 

4. I put two more #LetteredLetters in the mail this week! I took a handmade approach for two very special ladies.

5. I love sweet potatoes - LOVE them - but I cannot eat sweet potato pie. It's a texture thing for me. But look at this sliced sweet potato pie from the latest issue of Southern Living! This baby needs to be baking in my oven ASAP. Anyone want to come over and participate in my taste kitchen experiment?

Have a great weekend! We're off to a friends wedding in Arkansas tomorrow. Four girls in a car for 4 hours -- yep, it's going to be trouble!



  1. I sooooo want the leopard shoes and I want to make the Salted Caramel Pecan Pie in Southern Living!

    1. We should totally wear our Etta heels while baking together #pictureperfect
