Kristen's Christmas Wish List.

Sunday, December 2, 2012

1. Tory Burch Benjamin Sneakers  2. Apple TV  3. JCrew iPhone 5 Case  4. Tory Burch Robinson Wallet  5. Tory Burch Bow Zip Wallet  6. Vince Camuto Black Round Sunglasses  7. Zara Slipper with Leopard Tassel  8. Kate Spade Thin Bangle  9. West Elm Metallic Silver Tray  10. Philosophy Amazing Grace Perfume  11. Jonathan Adler Mermaid Ornament

Christmas is just a few weeks away but for some reason it doesn't quite feel like it.  To help me get in the holiday spirit I put the few ornaments I have (for now) on the tree over the weekend and decorated with the Christmas-themed items I own.  One tradition I want to start is to get a new Jonathan Adler ornament for the tree each year. I love everything mermaid so I thought this one was a great one to start off with.

Each year my sisters and I put together Christmas lists to share with one another (beats the risk of a potential return). Here are some ideas to get them started. Happy shopping to Katie, Kelly, and Elizabeth! 

Reindeer Art.

Friday, November 30, 2012

Something I love to do in my spare time is craft. I also LOVE the Holidays so when I saw this adorable Glitter Reindeer Art on Pinterest I knew I had to do make it. However, with my busy work schedule and the endless number of activities New York has to has to offer, it's rare for me to find the time (or space!) to craft. I found the perfect opportunity to recreate it with Kristen when I was back home in Miami for Thanksgiving. Not only did I get to craft and spend quality time with my sister, I now have a pretty darn cute Christmas decoration to add to my apartment!

Bananas Foster French Toast.

Monday, November 19, 2012

A few months back I made this oh-too-simple Bananas Foster French Toast when Kristen visited me here in New York.  It was the perfect breakfast that seemed more complicated than it actually was.  Since then, Kristen has baked it for our family in Miami and I plan to make it for breakfast on Thanksgiving morning.  I found the recipe here and have to question how "skinny" it is! I recommend you save this recipe because it is sure to become your quick and simple go-to breakfast meal that is sure to impress.

It's been way too long since we last wrote.  Blogging is something that I love to do and I could kick myself (and Kelly) that we didn't keep up with it more.   You would think that between the two of us we would be able to maintain it just fine but that is far from the truth as the past year has revealed.  

A lot of exciting things have happened in the past months that I should have shared with you earlier.  But hey, it's better late than never.  On September 19th my boyfriend of over 3 years proposed and I couldn't be more thrilled. At the same time, my boyfriend was also closing on a house, and we recently moved in together.  As you could imagine, it's been lots of projects around the house while also thinking about the big day.

Pollo in Potacchio.

Monday, January 9, 2012

Over the past few months, Skinnytaste has quickly become my go-to site for delicious and healthy recipes (especially after the holiday season).  One of those meals that I have made several times is Pollo in Potacchio, which is chicken in a rosemary, garlic, and tomato sauce served over pasta.  It is a yummy meal perfect for these colder winter nights!  One of the best parts about this meal is that it is great as leftovers for lunch or dinner the next day.
