I'm ready for some warm weather and I am definitely going to get a new pair of wedges. 

Turtle Power

Last weekend Nathan's good friend Barry and his wife Lindsay were visiting from Colorado. (I'll have more posts of where we ate because I am still dreaming about that delish food)
Anyway, it just so happened that my FIL's were in Arizona and Danny was watching Sadie-boo so we did what any smart late-20-somethings would do… invite people over like we are in high school and take advantage of their house. While we enjoyed cocktails and conversation we had a classic movie on in the background and I'd like to share some pics... 

You remember those gross things? Tokka and Rahzar. I had to look that up, by the way.

"Darrrrrr… let's eat whatever these Ninja Turtles give us"

Mmmm… Num Nummmm...

Oh wait! Who's that in the background!?!?!

Vanilla Ice... baby!… Go Ninja, Go Ninja, GO!

I highly recommend you watch it.

Moscow mule

So when I say Moscow Mule what do you think? If you were me; you'd think a donkey with an ushanka on. 

But no. You are wrong. It's this lovely drink that is delicious and served in a mighty fine cup. 

Here's a recipe:
Servings: Serves 1
Moscow Mule Recipe
  • 1 ounce vodka
  • 1 tsp. sugar syrup
  • Fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup ginger beer
  • 1 sprig fresh mint
  • 1 slice of lime
In a copper mug, pour vodka over ice. Add sugar syrup and lime juice. Top with ginger beer and stir. Garnish with mint sprig and lime slice.
Thanks Oprah.

Ladies night

Well, I found a movie that is worth going to see come May. 

Say hello to an all female laugh factory* produced by the funny movie hit-maker Judd Apatow

What a perfect movie for a gal planning her wedding. 

(*Kristen Wiig is hilar. Love her.)

Chap city

With the cold weather comes dry skin... and even worse dry lips!

My chapstick standard is Burt's Bees Honey Lip Balm. But to give my lips some extra TLC and beautify them I've been using Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer. There is just a hint of color and all the nourishing power of the classic lip balm. Doubly good.

Up, up and away

Wouldn't it be lovely to see this after a wedding? 

Don't worry they're legal, safe and biodegradable. :)

No apologies or excuses

The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift of life is yours; it is an amazing journey; and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. 
- Dan Zadra

That's all. Just wanted to share. :)

Blue shoes.

Currently diggin'

Light Classical - Chopin, Telemann, Bach, Mozart   - Yes, the Tot and I have been listening to Light Classical while we work (him: school; me: blogging) after work. We are officially old. 

Boxed Wine - Yes, I said it. It costs the same to get one bottle of wine as it does for 4 in a box so why not drink Bota Box or Black Box for longer and get more bang for your buck. 

Super Bowl Sunday! Most of my family is from Wisconsin so I'm going Packers all the way. But I don't really care that much about the game. Let's be real. I'm in it for the snacks and the commercials.
