Here are a few photos from my weekend ramblings.
I started my Friday evening off with a little wine and cheese "Happy Hour" at home. This cheese is soooo delicious! It's a creamy Toscano cheese soaked in Syrah from Trader Joe's. It has the nutty flavor and texture of an aged parmesan. I highly recommend it!
Saturday evening we went to Edmund's Oast with some friends of ours that were visiting for the night. I'm no stranger to this place because their food is so delicious. You can read about one of my previous dining experiences here.
During this visit we sat outside at their new Bower, which is basically a covered area with a bar and seating (and heaters). I had my usual pickled shrimp dish as well as the fresh ricotta. I did try one new thing, which was the cornbread. I typically am not a huge cornbread fan, however this is one is like cake. It's soft and moist and served with a sweet honey butter...so good!

After church on Sunday Whit and I decided to go to one our old favorites for some Mexican food. We used to frequent El Dorado quite a bit as it was close to where we use to live. One of the best things about this place is their lunch time buffet. Yes, you read that right....a buffet full of all the yummy Mexican dishes you would normally order off of the menu and then some! They have everything from enchiladas and quesadillas to tacos and hot wings and enough cheese dip to put you in a queso coma. If your not in the mood to stuff your face with the all you can eat buffet, the regular menu is also available.
On to other important things. There are a few good sales going on right now that may be of interest.
Banana Republic is having a nice little sale that is good through tomorrow.
My picks would be this top, this dress, this pencil skirt, and these earrings.
Don't worry, if you can't find anything you like, there is always Saks Off 5th.
I really like this racerback workout top.
Everyone needs a good pair of black skinny jeans like these.
This dress would be perfect fit for a tropical vacation. And this dress would be great for transitioning from a day on the beach to an afternoon lunch at a restaurant.
Gap is also offering some good deals in their Winter Sale now through the 28th.
I could seriously go on a major shopping spree...but I will refrain.
