I have been searching for a long floral dress that didn't look like a church dress. Trying on quite a few I finally found one that I love. I really wanted a floral dress that channeled the 90's with the smaller floral print like the ones I used to see in middle school in the Delia's catalog. Thank goodness I found this one at Tobi.
A quick recipe for you on this Wednesday. These photos have been sitting in my photos waiting to get used. I made this a few weeks ago and never blogged about it so I hope I remember all the ingredients. What I do know is that it was delicious, healthy and I finally got my husband to eat avocado!
I REFUSE to make two separate meals at our house. What we eat is what Leo eats or some variation of that. I have talked to many moms who go to great measures to make different meals. That wasn't happening at our house. I made a lot of purees when Leo was little but now that he is a big boy and he can eat what we are eating. So this blog post is laying out a few different meals you can make for your kiddos. When we eat at home the biggest thing I try to do is make sure they aren't processed. I try to give him his food in it's whole state and in return when we eat out Leo then gets to enjoy mac and cheese, grilled cheese, french fries etc. But when we are home we try to keep his meals balanced, healthy, and try to expose him to different types of food.
I purchased this dress this winter with no where to wear it. I just saw it at Anthropolgie and fell in love with it. Needless to stay I have yet to still wear it other than for these blog photos. It is such a beautiful dress and is so versatile as it can be worn as an easter dress or to a wedding. More about this "every occasion dress" below....
So my kitchen needed a little refresh. I hate how messy things get around the kitchen sink. We have dawn soap sitting out, sponges and cleaners sitting in the sink, it just was looking yucky. I wanted to tidy this area up a little so I decided to do a little post on how to make your sink area look better. Plus I'm sharing with you a few little kitchen cleaning tips!
Loving some spring fashion, but the weather wasn't this day so I had to do some pictures inside. Thank goodness for my parents house and their awesome lighting! I'm showing off two of my favorite things for spring. Embroidered jeans and the color blush. Can't get enough of it! I also went a little out of my comfort zone and tried a bodysuit.... more about that below.
I keeping seeing things pop up or people talking about all the health benefits of Tumeric. I decided to dive deeper and see what the rage is all about. After reading all about it (I really liked this article) I decided I needed to try and incorporate it into my diet. Turmeric is common in South Asian cooking, but hadn't made it's way into my spice cabinet. After doing the research and reading all the amazing benefits of the spice I decided to add it into our diet. You can get it both in raw or powdered form. I was able to find both forms at my local grocery store. Best of all it tastes pretty darn good and is good for you.
Jay and I got the chance a week or so ago to do a little overnight getaway. We headed to Walla Walla for a little wine tasting. It was a pretty last minute thing so I needed to throw together a quick outfit. When in doubt go with all black. But I thought hey lets switch it up and all in some brown tones and different textures. I loved how this outfit looked so much that I decided it was "blog worthy".
I know I often get in lunch ruts. A year or so ago I did a blog post on some lunch wraps, it was one of my highest viewed blog posts of all time. So I thought I'd share with you my current lunch obsession. Quinoa bowls, in the summer I eat salads but they don't seem to do the trick for me in the winter. So these two quinoa bowls have been my go to. They are easy to pre make for a few days and I promise you will love them.
OMG is it spring yet? I have so many cute spring clothes I'm dying to wear. I had been wanting to wear this cute pink suede cap but had been putting it off. Then after another snow day I said screw it and wore it anyway. Despite the snowy backdrop and HOW FREAKING FREEZING IT WAS taking these pictures I'm enjoying some spring fashion.
