cornflake dreams.: five things.

five things.

It's August! How did that happen so fast?! I'm excited for a low-key weekend with lots of tasty food. Here are a few things on my mind today... 
Cambron, Amy, Shelby, and Ally - I wore my new favorite cut-out black dress (a $25 steal!)

ONE: I met up with some more Charleston bloggers last night at Bin 152 and indulged in a realllly tasty charcuterie and cheese board. 
TWO: Now that I am in charge of cooking dinners in our house, I have been relying on Pinterest for dinner inspiration. Cheddar baked chicken fingers, turkey bacon avocado summer pasta, and ratatouille for two with goat cheese, tomato sauce and veggies over couscous were all winners in our house. I am excited to try to make korean beef and one pot chicken risotto next!

THREE: I am loving Jcrew Factory's new arrivals -- the navy and burgundy tops are making me excited about FALL.

FOUR: My July Houzz ideabook is all about decorating your office space on a budget! I miss having an office -- so that'll be a priority in our next apartment rental or house.


FIVE: H's friend is visiting this weekend with his girlfriend. We're meeting up with him on tonight and I can't wait to try a new-to-me Charleston restaurant.

Have a great weekend!
xo,
Jillian

  1. I can hardly believe that this month is over too! I don't know how I ever functioned without an office space. It's a shared office/guest space etc but I love having space to work and spread out.

    I also found some chicken fingers on Pinterest.

  7. My mouth is salivating. Thanks for telling me about those Pinterest recipes...you know how sometimes dishes look amazing, but the finished product isn't that great which is a stinker. So awesome you met up with some local bloggers :) Have a beautiful weekend Jillian!

So bummed I missed yesterday, I stopped getting ready when I thought it was cancelled and it would have taken me some time to get down there... suburb problems! haha Looking forward to Sunday though!! I'm also loving J Crew Factory's new arrivals, my bank account is not though! It's sort of sad we can't wear the Fall clothes until October down here.. boo!
