Feeling festive!

So in keeping with the fall theme I was feeling a bit bold and festive today. I went with orange/grey. 
I didn't take a full body shot because let's face it- my hair was a mess and no makeup means I look like I haven't slept in 4 years. Which isn't entirely off the mark...

I just took one of our cats in for a pet-i-cure (see what I did there) and whilst convincing him into his crate he inflicted the following damage to my fall leggings. Hence why he needed that nail trim!

All in a days work!

Great find- pens!

Im not sure about you but I am a pen-a-holic!

Gel, ink, marker, felt, ball point - it doesn't matter because I love them all!

That being said, I found a really cool set from Japan that you just have to try!

These have great color, write beautifully and are...wait for it...erasable!!!! Yes, erasable!

They are Pilot Frixion pens. I got mine on Amazon here.

So while I was on Amazon Prime ordering some necessities (coffee and diaper wipes, natch!) I spied a couple lovelies!

I love Kate Spade bracelets so when I saw this, I about keeled over! Oh my gracious pretties! And oh my, the colors! I think the pink and the teal are the most fab. Although, the white with gold circles is so, so elegant!

Berry Picking

We had a great time berry picking today! We didn't stay long as it was hot, but we did have a great time!

(Don't judge my outfit- it was nearly 100F out today!)

Yummy Teriyaki

I moved here from Seattle. There are tons and tons of teriyaki shops around there - here not so much. We have kabobs.

So, in the spirit of wanting some yummy food, I went in search of a great teriyaki recipe. I adapted a friend's recipe (thanks Elbe and Jill) and here we go!

The cast of characters:
1C Soy Sauce
1C water
1-2 shakes rice vinegar
1C brown sugar
2-3 cloves garlic, minced/crushed
1-2 tsp crushed ginger (I cheated)

Add to a bowl and whisk until the brown sugar is completely dissolved.


Feel free to adjust the basic recipe to tweak your personal desired flavor!

You can simmer this on the stove for a lil while and make a thicker finishing sauce as well.

I keep mine stored in the fridge so it's always ready when I need a quick and yummy dinner!

2 parties 2 many

We had 2 birthday parties to go to today. Maxwell hit overload by the second.

We hit a hasty retreat.

We are now chilling with Blues Clues and calming down while momma here tries to get rid of a massive migraine. OMSH!

Unwinding with Elmo.
Trying to cut using a spoon and knife.
Loving the Elmo cupcake!
