Things I’m Loving…

Another post of random things I’m loving this week:

1. If Georgia wins over GA Tech and Bama, we could have a repeat of the 1980 National Championship game against Notre Dame. Go Dawgs!

2. Great gift idea: scan handwritten family recipes, then have them printed onto a tea towel.

3. I just love this eBay seller that Entertaining Women recommended to me about a year ago – quality linen hemstitched napkins, placemats, & table runners for a fraction of what they usually retail. The picture below shows one of my placemats in “steel blue.” (I knew I should have ironed before I started taking pictures…)

4. Finally, I followed (as closely as possible – our grocer was fresh out of calves’ feet) Julia Child’s recipe for braised beef (AKA pot roast) earlier this week and it was DELICIOUS. Her cookbooks, along with my Williams-Sonoma series, continue to be favorites.

Hope you are having a lovely weekend!

Golfing Attire

I readily admit that one of the things that got me into golf were the infinite options of cute skorts, capris, and polos that I could wear. I love how classic golf attire combines function, tradition, and casual elegance. One of my favorite memories of playing golf with my husband involves a relentlessly rainy afternoon (a rarity in Colorado), my Ross Hunting tartan with waterproof boots, and Sam in Gatsby-visits-the-Highlands wool cap and sweater.

I sometimes wear a dressier pair of espadrilles or wedges if we are going out for a bite after a game. Otherwise, my comfy Sperrys are just right. Other than simple stud earrings and my wedding ring, I tend to not wear jewelry when doing anything sporty.

When playing, I love the classic Callaway saddle-style shoe.

Afterwards, we enjoyed a pint of Allgood Amber Ale at the Bull & Bush.

A happy Sunday to you and yours!
