Three Things Thursday

I've got another Three Things Thursday post for y'all today with (unsurprisingly) 3 things that have next to nothing in common. However, before I get into the three things, I've got to give Parker a birthday shoutout! It would take me way too many blog posts to attempt to put into words how grateful I am for this wonderful husband of mine! 

Parker did not ask to be the unpaid, hard working photographer for Art Fashion Fun. However, he has so kindly accepted this job and been the best behind-the-scenes supporter I could have ever asked for. He doesn't typically read my blog posts- I think the time spent on photographs is enough Art Fashion and Fun for him. But I couldn't write a blog post on his birthday and not throw a birthday wish out there!

That's enough for now. Back to today's 3 things:

1. The best, long-lasting lip color- I will be the first to tell you that I am not one who knows much about makeup. However, I have a few select products that I really do love, and this ultra wear lip color is one of them. It is known to be extremely long-lasting. And the color I have is perfect for fall and winter. On one side, it has the base color coat, and a clear gloss is on the other side. The color I have is #69 Tender Beige. It is a little more than I typically spend on lipstick. However, it is worth it in my opinion!


2. Marinating chicken in buttermilk- Y'all might think I'm crazy on this one. However, we love it! Parker watched something that said marinating chicken in buttermilk will make your chicken super moist. So, we buy buttermilk when we know we will be eating chicken. And the night before Parker cooks the chicken, he puts the chicken and buttermilk in a ziplock bag and lets it sit in the refrigerator overnight. 

We have been doing this for a couple of years now. However, Parker's parents got into town last night, and we cooked dinner at home for them. As soon as Parker's mom tasted the chicken, she said what did y'all do to this chicken? It is so moist! So that made me realize people may not know this little trick, and I decided to switch up one of my original three things to this one. If you try it out, let me know what you think!


3. The cutest holiday outfit- I shared this picture on Instagram last night, but I wanted to share it here too because it is the perfect outfit for any holiday party! Or any fun occasion really. Y'all, this skirt is the cutest! Bright pink and ruffles? I clearly had to have it. It also comes in indigo and topaz if pink is not your thing. The best news is that it is on sale right now. What you need to know is that it runs extremely large. I sized down 2 sizes. And the pretty silk blouse is true to size. It is also on sale!

The link I provided takes you straight to the Shop My Insta page. All you have to do is click on the picture shown below on the Shop My Insta page, and all of the outfit details will appear (along with some other pink sale items I linked). Click on any of the items you see, and you will be taken directly to that item on the retailer's site! You will definitely see more of me in this skirt. I'm thinking some sparkly silver or gold heels would be so much fun with it!


Parker's parents are in town, it's Parker's birthday, and I am meeting Kathleen from Carrie Bradshaw Lied. It's a great day! Thanks so much for reading! Have a wonderful day!
