Shoe Party?

I don't know if this is "Good Stuff" but wondered if any one else knew. I was invited to a party this week and couldn't make it. My daughter and I loved the idea of a shoe party. Has anyone heard of this?

LuLu Lemons

Hey Girls, Man it's been a long time since I posted anything. I guess I've just been waiting for that PERFECT "GOOD" thing to share. Yesterday I was talking to my friend about this AWESOME store that is opening over at my mall this week and I thought to myself "dang, why haven't I posted this on WKTGS yet?". So here it is!

A few years ago my mom started showing up wearing the CUTEST casual clothes! They were sweat suits, pants, shirts, shorts, capris, jackets, workout clothes etc. I was curious and so when I went to visit her she took me to this store in Calgary called LULU LEMON. I was hooked at first glance!

Since then they have started to slowly expand into the states. There is a store in Chicago, one in Newport Beach, etc. But, this week I found out they are opening one here, in Denver, at MY MALL!!! I'm sooooo excited! I promise you all that you will LOVE these clothes. Once you put on a pair of their cozy sweats you'll never want to wear another kind. They are perfect clothes for fun casual days when its raining or snowing, a day at the park with the kids (shorts) or a Sunday afternoon walk. They are as cozy as your coziest "schlepp" (ask Julie for a definition) but you look GREAT in them at the same time! (They even have a men's line that my dad, husband and brother in law and un - named brother in law LOVE!)

If you can't find a store where you live then you'll just have to come visit me in Denver.

Swim Suit Season!

Alright all you hot mama's as swim suit season approaches I know all of us are on the hunt for that perfect suit! I totally found one! In fact I found one last year as well and so I thought I would share with you all my find. MODBE, not MODBOD, MODBE. My cousin is a consultant and last year after seeing her cute suit I inquired where I could find one for myself. This is the place. I now have a Bandeau top (super cute) and I have a Lace up top. The bottoms are great as well and cover really well. The skirts are cute too! The thing I really love is that they fit true to size, in most suits for me I have to go up a size, sometimes 2. The other thing I really love, some of your bustier women will appreciate this, is that your girls are fully covered. I mean you aren't hanging out anywhere! These suits are great, so check it out. Oh ya and if you need it fast, definitely expedite, they aren't the fastest at the shipping. Let me know what you all think.

1 1/2 cups rotisserie chicken, shredded
3 Tbs roasted red peppers, chopped
2 Tbs Black olives, chopped
Fresh Parmesan Cheese
Marinara or Alfredo Sauce
PREPARATION:Lay biscuits on floured countertop to form a 9 x 11-in rectangle (4 biscuits down, 5 across.) Using flour as needed, press biscuits together well.
Blend pesto into the cream cheese and spread mixture over entire surface of dough. Distribute chicken evenly over pesto cream. Sprinkle chopped peppers and olives over chicken.
Carefully roll up from the long end and gently compact as you go. With seam side down, slice into 12 equal sections. Place slices, on their sides, into greased 10-inch round pan or cast iron skillet. Drizzle lightly with sauce and sprinkle with parmesan.
