Today's Faves

Kid Fave:


One year ago, Calvin resorted to telling any and all Hispanic persons about his love for "huevos con chorizo" because it was the only bit of Spanish that he was confident in. Now, the littles are all soaking up the language wherever they can get it. This dvd is perfect for them. (There are 11 language programs, total.)

I'm hoping they learn quickly, so they can teach me.

Pretty Fave:

My fashionABLE leather clutch.

Full disclosure: I've never been a clutch sort of girl. I'm more the "cavernous monstrosity" variety. Cory refuses to look for anything in my bags.They are ancient, untidy and unforgivable.

So I was skeptical.

But listen, see how my clutch looks a little bulky up top? It is holding a large zip-up wallet, my phone, a lip gloss, and a paper back book. These are my essentials and I had to see if it worked. (I may admittedly be missing the point behind a clutch...)

It did work, and I'm feeling sleek as a cat with my perfectly distressed leather. It's just the sort of thing to elevate my jeans, old T, and damp hair.

All of the leather products are handmade in Ethiopia by women earning a fair wage. I can't stress enough how impressed I am by this company. And what a bonus that we can support this business and look all stylish.

Today only (August 27th), fashionABLE is offering free shipping on all leather. Think early Christmas shopping!

Food Fave:

Grilled pork chops with grilled peaches, balsamic, and blue cheese. Please make this as soon as possible. Do it exactly as they say to do it, because they're the experts, after all.

Send salsa in lieu of gifts and cards of thanks.

Book Fave:

All I can say is this: I'm stealing away to read half a page. I'm staying up way too late. I'm all-in.

What are you hooked on right now?
