Ten on Tuesday [No.45]

Y'all, I could literally browse antique stores every single day and probably never get bored.
They're a combination of home decor & history, two of my very favorite things and I just don't get sick of them. It's like a museum where everything is for sale.
My sister & I went to one this past weekend on the hunt for nursery furniture (which I'm pretty sure I found) and we stumbled upon this chippy, white, glam heaven-I could've taken every piece home with me if my husband wouldn't have divorced me 😉
Okay, did anyone else watch the Kentucky Derby this year?
I totally meant to talk about it in last week's post, but it slipped my mind completely!
I picked Justify (aka, the winner!), mostly because I love his jockey-Mike Smith. He's such a talented guy & he spoke so highly of Justify.
He was the only horse in the field that finished the race with a clean nose, so I call that a double win.
I shared this quiz with my mom on race day; "Is This The Title of an Audiobook or the Name of a Racehorse?"
Y'all should all take it and let me know your results!
Did you check out Saturday's post yet?
Like I said, my sister and I were out and about so I didn't get a chance to share it around like I usually do, so you may have missed my big Empties review, but it was a really great roundup with lots of information. I would love to know if you use any of the products I used up!
My Mother's Day Gift Guide is still accessible and has some really great picks, even for you last minute shoppers. If nothing else, go pick her up a card and write her a sweet little message-she'll treasure it!
While my sister & I were out shopping Saturday, we went to Old Navy for her to make a return and I ended up buying another print in the same dress I purchased last time around.
This pretty striped print will be perfect for Spring & Summer (and it's pretty roomy, so hopefully it will work for me for a while longer!)
We spent lots of time with this sweet pup this weekend; we're really trying to soak up all our time with Forrest that we can so he doesn't feel like second fiddle when the baby comes.
I think he's going to be a great big brother!
I am a huge sucker for Italian food, so when I saw this recipe for antipasto squares, I knew I had to add it to our menu!
It's got all my favorite flavors; pepperoni, pepperoncini, cheeses-all the best things in life.
When I test it out, I'll let y'all know the results.
I was browsing around the other day & stumbled upon this dress and thought I might recommend it as a wedding dress to some of my friends that are getting married soon...but y'all, that price tag!
It's a stunning gown though & would be beautiful for a boho wedding. 😍👰
Does anyone else watch How Jen Does It on YouTube?
Her videos are perfection; they're usually fairly short, but they're all about how she maintains her household (aka, cleaning & cooking basically).
She recommends this mop & since Amazon has it right now for $45 with two spray bottles & four mop pads, which is a great deal-so I snapped it up & it should be here next week sometime.
Ignore all the junk in the background of this picture; but I just had to share my book haul from this past Saturday.
My sister & I took a truckload of boxes from my house to the thrift store to donate (we've been cleaning out in preparation for adding all the baby things!) and I stopped inside to browse through the books because that store has great prices.
I got the entire pile of children's books (on the left) and the pile of books for me (+ one more hardcover Elin Hilderbrand book that I've already started) all for $23. It's 29 books total so I think I did a pretty great job!
If you're looking for books-check out your local thrift store, you might be surprised at what you can find :)

Until next time. . .


  1. I love that old navy dress you linked!! That is exciting you think you found your nursery furniture! I can't wait to hear about it all coming together!

  2. YUM! Those antipasto squares look delish!

  3. How Jen Does It sounds like such an interesting Youtube channel! I still am figuring out a cleaning schedule for my new apartment, so maybe watching those videos would help!

  4. I also love going to antique stores, there is just so many cool things to find! It looks like you found a lot of great books at the thrift store. I recently donated some of my children's books to a local charity. It was tough to part with them, but then I thought about all the joy they will bring to another family.

  5. Love! Old Navy has become my go-to for classy yet relaxed travel dresses. Thanks for sharing!

  6. What a fun post! That Marchesa dress is stunning!


  7. I love those antipasto squares! I need to try them soooon! And I also love the Old Navy dress you picked up -- it's so cute and looks totally comfy!

  8. That was such an awesome gift guide for MD!! Love it. Great ideas. Also, such a fun post!

  9. Awe Forrest is precious! I would soak up all the time with him too! I'm sure he'll be okay when baby comes though!

  10. I love that photo of the antique store stuff!! So pretty!!! I used to go antique shopping all the time with my grandfather when I was little. It's been forever since I've went. I watched the Derby last weekend while at a crawfish boil and had a blast! I love Soap and Glory products!!! I'll have to check out that post that you wrote! Hope you have a great week!

  11. Wow that is a LOT of books!! Lucky it's summer! They'd all be great beach reads if you're planning on heading there this summer :]

  14. Antique stores are my fave! My boyfriend and I are about to move, and I told him we should go antiquing for some furniture for our new place. Your puppy is so sweet! That's awesome that y'all are spending some extra time loving on him before the baby comes.
