We're getting Saucey in the PNW!

Hi friends,

When you find something you love do you eat it every day? 
Because that is what I do. 

I have been wanting to give up sugar because I will be 30 here shortly 
and
 I've had enough of the fluff. 
Ya-dig.

Insert this cookbook!

I bought the Kindle Version so I could access it on my iPhone and iPad, 
which makes grocery shopping so much easier!
Plus the Kindle version is half the cost of the paperback version.
You can get yours here!

So easy, so delicious!

The first time I made this I followed the directions exactly. 

The second through fifth time, I substituted a few things.

I used EVOO instead of avocado oil
and
A sweet onion instead of a shallot
plus
I also made a non-spicy version and left out the red pepper and cayenne pepper

There are so many options, and they are all sugar free!

Enjoy!

It is a print party!


Hi friends,

M and I have been trying to remodel/reorganize our closet for the last 100 years. 

We both shop 
and 
Having to share one closet is devastating

So we recently moved my accessories from the closet to the bedroom.

I have the perfect little nook to call my own

I'm on the hunt for the perfect little (big) mirror
Something vintage with gold
but 
In the mean time...

I wanted to put up some cute prints. 

I recently joined the year 2014 and stopped living under a rock
and
Got Photoshop!
Holy option overload. 

Here are the two prints I just made, 
The grey background is just so you can see them a bit better. 



I'm clearly not an expert but I am looking forward to playing with Photoshop a bit more.

Any and all helpful hints would be appreciated!

The hunt for Tom-October

Hi Friends,

Have you seen this image floating around?
It was posted on Nordstom's Facebook page.

Do you see #3?

Are you dropping everything to visit Nordstrom and see if they have them in your size?

Hold the phone friends, you won't find it. 

I've looked EVERYWHERE. 

They do have them in denim size 10-12; but that doesn't help me or my wardrobe. 
and 
I'm
Dev-a-stated. 

So if you see them in an 8.5 
I'll hug you, 
Buy you some bubbly, 
and  
LOVE you forever. 

What do you want this Tuesday?

Celebcrushends.

Hi friends,

The other day M told me that Charlize Theron was his lady crush. 
Umm what, 
She's blonde
So...
 In typical crazy fashion I asked him if he thought she was prettier than me.
He was very sweet and said 

M: "Babe I married you".
Me: You didn't answer the question, do you think she is prettier than me?
M: ....
Me: YOU PAUSED

So what if I agree that she is gorgeous. 
I can't compete with her 6+ foot frame
But I have boobs!
Winning. 

Anyways. 
I have about 5000 crushes. 
They aren't real by any means; 
I happen to follow just about all my favorite celebs (friends) on Instagram,
who doesn't
 and
 when I see their photos
I like them
and
They totally see that I liked it
and
We have a moment. 
Duh

So tickle me obsessed when I saw 
NPH's margarita contest. 
NPH: "Margarita #W: I swinnin laps"
Me: I swin that way too NPH, blue rimmed glass for the win!

 NPH: "Margarita #12: I's the life of the party!! Everybodyone is LOVING me!!"
Me: I love the look they are giving NPH; I feel like its the look M gives me when I have 12 margaritas.


NPH: "Margarita #4: Feeling great. Can't find my book..."
Me: He reads!!!

So who is your celeb crush????

A December to Remember

Hi friends!
 
Happy New Year!!
 
I was fortunate enough to have the last two weeks off and if I'm being honest,
I want the last two weeks of every year off.
*Wishful thinking at its finest*
 
Here is a brief rundown of our month...
Since I forgot to photograph most of it.
Blame it on the a a a a a alcohol
 
One
For the 2nd time in 5 years.
M cooked.
  Viola!
Review:
It was actually pretty tasty, kudos to my bald Chef!
 
Two
I got 5 days with Twinner
In those 5 days we...
went to a winery
  Cheers!
 
Cooked,
Recipe adapted from here
 
And...
We decorated Gingerbread (Graham cracker) houses! 
Twinner killed us, whatevs.
 
Three
I also gained 4 lbs.
Damn you vino.
Kidding it wasn't the vino; it was fireball.
I can't say no to the cinnamon goodness.
 
Four
I may or may not
Have looked at a flier from 2012 when I was planning our NYE.
Don't worry the 5 other people with me did the same thing;
So we spent our evening over-dressed at a hotel drinking our sorrows via Greyhounds
(thanks vodka),
Ringing in the New Year with plastic beads and barefoot amongst people way older than we are
 (not really older we just "aren't" 30 yet).
 
Five
The 1st was spent at the Races
Where we lost $18 dollars  
If you live in Portland GO!
It's so fun, and cheap, we're talking $1 beers cheap.
 
 
I hope that the first weekend of 2014 brings you something great!

Merry Ho Ho and a bottle of Patron!


Hi friends!

Happy Wednesday. 

Christmas is officially two weeks away!

Which means I have so much to accomplish in a very short amount of time. 

Like

Finding M an Xbox One. 
I'm sorry but I refuse to pay anything more than $500
Which is $1 dollar above asking. 
I am not spending $650
He can slum it with his Xbox 360. 

So far I've called 
13 stores
 and
 wasted about 45 minutes of my time 
when I could have been watching a Lifetime movie.
Ya feel me?

But really I am trying. 
Sort of. 
To find one. 

Is there anything you're hunting for that you haven't found yet?

I'll leave you with M and I's first Christmas card. 


Happy Christmas x 14!

I'm sure you've all seen the fab glitter reindeers floating through cyberland.
 
 
They are just the cutest aren't they??

Isn't this stuff just the greatest!
 
A pencil
 
Glitter
*I used Martha Stewarts gold.

Hairspray
 
Optional:
Gold paint pen

Step one:
 
Find the silhouette you like and print it to fit your canvas.
 
Step two:
 
Trace your outline onto your canvas with a pencil

 
Step three:
 
Using a paintbrush, apply the mod podge generously.
 
Step four:
 
Sprinkle the modpodge with glitter! 
 
Step five:


Wait.

Step six:

Repeat steps three through five two more times.

Step seven:

Spray dry canvas with hairspray to seal the glitter.
