fiddle leaf fig tree

all photos from pinterest

so, i have been thinking about buying a fig tree for my home.

i am so not a green thumb,

but i do like the look of the fig tree and the benefits of having an indoor plant.

and i love the texture and color of the basket in the last photo!

do you have one?

i would love to hear all about it.

have a great weekend!

butternut squash soup



my favorite time of year!

this is what we had for dinner last night.

we kinda made up our recipe as we went.

a simple and low-fat butternut squash soup.

however, i do plan on trying this soup with heavy whipping cream.

and i will definately be trying this recipe.

goat cheese makes everything taste better.

turning the big 4-0!



i think i can talk about it now.


i am a huge birthday person.

i mean, the celebration needs to last for days.

but this year was different.

totally different!

i really took this one hard.


julie is 40?!

when did that happen?

i still think i am in my early 20's.

maybe even 18 at times!

(ok, maybe not 18)

i just wanted this birthday to quietly pass by.

however, my sweet husband thought otherwise.

on my real birthday, we dined out with a few of my friends.

then the following weekend he "surprised" me with a surprise birthday party.

with an 80's theme!

ok, it was fun.

i will spare you the silly pictures.

i am so very happy and blessed with my life!

and its just a number.


now lets move on!
