Mustard for Fall...And I'm Not Talkin Hot Dogs

Mustard seems to be everywhere this season. Specifically, I've seen it in a lot of different pant styles paired with other solid jewel tones. Top it off with that gold jewelry you've been dying to bring out and it's a perfect ease into fall.

I love this color and already have quite a bit of it in my wardrobe, so very excited that I am finally in fashion! About time!

Thanks to my neighbor and great friend Mary Beth for introducing me to this fun new site - sneakpeeq! I'm so excited about it that I wanted to share with you guys! So far I've bought three things from the site at great discounts - and two of the things I've bought are Christmas gifts, so I'm totally getting ahead this year!

What is sneakpeeq? I'd say it's a little like One Kings Lane, but the difference is the more you visit, the more you buy, the more rewards you get! And I mean real rewards! Also, you have a limited number of "peeks" per day. These peeks allow you to see the super low sale prices they offer - and they are so low, they keep them private until you peek!

Today I bought a Big Buddha purse that was regularly $70 for only $39!! And tonight I bought some fun cucumber eye treatment pads for only $4.00!! They have accessories, home decor, clothing, cosmetics...and more new things every day!

So, if you're looking for a good deal and some …

I don't know how to put this, but I'm kind of a big deal. Will Ferrell and I share the same birthday.

And my grandaddy Alvin too. We share the same birthday. And like 6 people in my home church.

So, maybe I'm not really a big deal.

Anywho, this year, Mike asked what I wanted for my birthday and although there is a Dooney and Bourke purse I'm dying to have, I opted for an experience we could both enjoy and something we'd been talking about doing for a while.

A couple's portrait.

No, not really. I wanted him to take me to the Inn at Fearrington in Pittsboro, NC for a night.

The couple's portrait in our room was a bonus. (More on the Inn at Fearrington in another post)

We have very few pictures together since I'm always the one behind the camera and he refuses to learn how to use the darn thing, so I managed to use the self-timer for like the second time ever and capture some shots of us right before dinner Saturday night.

So unlike that adorable purse wit…
