CPC Designs is a company out of Philadelphia started by three mommas.  They got their name from the first letter in each of their children's names: Charlie, Paige and Cooper.  These clothes are super cute for children ages 12 months to 8 years! Check out their website between now and Memorial Day and receive a 20% discount on your order when you type in "chick"!  Click here to view their website and place an order!


You can personalize these dresses by choosing a fabric, ribbon color, and monogram or embroidery design.  What a cute idea!


Adorable shorts for the gals.

Tuesday Food Day-Boiled Peanuts


This is an all time favorite for me.  Who doesn't love a boiled peanut with salty juices running down your mouth and hands?  I know there are some of you out there who are completely grossed out, but your not's ok.  

I can eat them piping hot or cold as ice.  Either way I like a cold beer or a diet coke with mine...something about the salty sweet taste.  

Boiled Peanuts Recipe

Boiled Peanuts

pack as many green peanuts as you can in a pot of boiling water
go ahead and add 1/3 cup of salt to a packed pot
boil 2 1/2-3 hours and taste as you go...sometimes you need more salt
eat hot or cold
refrigerate after cooking
(Pawleys Island is the best place to be for consuming these if possible:))

I have to confess, I may have been a little over zealous heading into the Piggly Wiggly this afternoon buying 11 pounds of green peanuts and two Iodized salts.   Memorial Day weekend is encroaching and I HAVE to be prepared.  

What about you?  You dig em'?  Make your own or buy them already boiled?  
Canned anyone-never tried them, just curious???
