((new poster leaning on my nightstand))

Life has once again gotten in the way of my blogging. It has been awhile since I posted a stowaways post. So, without further ado here are a few snippets of life as of late...

((how cute is this?!))

((beautiful scenery))

((Emmy ballots... didn't do so well!))

((trying to get fit with Perfect Fit))

((Sunday fire))

((flashback to when this one was super little))

dinner party

My girlfriends and I have a dinner ritual where one of us cooks dinner for the others each month. This past month was my turn. I am not much of a chef, so I had to pick a meal that wasn't too difficult. The perfect option then was pizza! My sister, the real chef, helped me make the meal. We made three different pizzas: barbeque chicken, veggie, and spinach ricotta. They all were delicious! The side dishes were a little trickier. We made a kale salad, roasted veggies, and roasted cauliflower buffalo bites. We wanted the meal to be a bit healthy after all! Then came dessert, my sister prepared baked pears and I added in a little salted caramel sorbet. You can check out most of these recipes on my sister's food blog, Land of the Brie. I really need to become more of a cook and this dinner was a step in the right direction!

another party, another dress

Another one of my friends recently had an engagement party... so many of these lately! It was a more formal occasion than the past engagement party I went to, so I needed a cocktail dress to mark the occasion. I was looking online at Zara dresses and saw this dress and knew it was the perfect choice. The dress had a unique cut, the softest fabric, and was at the perfect price point. It was super comfortable for a night of celebrating! I know I will be able to get more use out of it for date nights or with tights in the winter to hit the town.
