Healthy store-bought soups

You probably think that I am off my rocker for doing a post about soup in August, but since I have been battling a cold that has me sounding like Marge Simpson, I’ve pretty much been living off soup for days. I try to keep my pantry stocked with soups all year long for situations like this, so I figured that I would share some of my staples today.

Happy Friday! Today is my 5-year wedding anniversary, so it is a pretty good day here. Here are this week’s favorites!   Lilly Pulitzer Tumbler My sweet friend Lindsay gave me a Lilly tumbler for my birthday, and I absolutely love it!  It is adorable, but it also entices me to drink more water.  Whatever it takes, right?   Pomelo & Sea Salt Candle My mother gave this candle to me, and even though it looked too pretty to burn, I couldn’t resist lighting it.  According to the Anthropologie website, it is “a...

Happy Friday! How is Christmas less than three weeks away?  Luckily, I am an extreme shopper, so I am already done with my shopping.  Now for those hundreds of presents that need to be wrapped… Being that it is the season of giving, I haven’t been buying any “love-to-have” items, and I have mainly been sticking to all of the “must-haves” instead.  Even so, that didn’t stop me from coming up with 5 favorites from the week! Beach Babe DVD 2 I am a an avid user of workout DVDs, and this one is my...

Happy Halloween! We’re taking Michael trick-or-treating for the very first time tonight, and I cannot wait.  We’re only going to a few houses (along with our next door neighbors and their son), but it should still be a lot of fun.  I’ll probably take a zillion pictures, so if you’re curious to see what my kids looked like in their costumes, head on over to The Mini Skirt next week. Here are the favorites for this week… Nona Lim Carrot Ginger Soup Now that the weather is sort of cooling down in Charlotte, I have...
