I may have hit up Trader Joe’s a few weeks ago on my way home from work.
There may have been a cheap wine purchase involved.
Does it make it okay if I bought other things, too?
And, because Carrie’s vegan guest post made me curious…
Okay, Okay. Should I be embarrassed that for a really, really long time (okay, my whole life up until I bought this package about a month ago) I’ve always said “Kin-oh-wa?”
I have yet to try this baby. I think I was too put off by the fact that I’ve been saying it wrong for so long.
So, if you’ve got some genius “KEEN-WA” recipes, hit me with ’em.‘Cause if I’ve got a good plan up my sleeve, I’ll get some motivation to try it out on my own.
And just WAIT till you hear my exciting Chobani news. In short, the company is awesome, and I finally have the opportunity to try the elusive lemon flavored Greek yogurt. Ah yeah! A full update is soon to come…
It’s a rain boots day.
I finally put my Sperry rain boots to good use in the dreary Virginia Beach weather today. Although I was excited to utilize these babies, I’m not thanking Mother Nature for the pouring rain. I was supposed to do a nice outdoor run with my buddy Robby today. And finally purchase new running shoes.
I swear I’m not joking when I say every time I’ve planned to go get the darned shoes something happens beyond my control to nix the plans. It’ll happen… eventually.
In the world of bLyss Designs
I love when a brand new design is requested for me to paint. Jenna, my little-sister-that-I-never-had, asked me to make this beaut for her friend Jess’ birthday.
I’m currently working on some Ohio State Nursing glasses, a “camping” glass (thanks, Whitney, for giving me a serious challenge) ;), a Ravens glass, and an Animal Nurse glass.
DIY Hair Help Needed
There’s a gift I was not blessed with.
It’s the gift of hair styling.
As evidenced by my numerous pictures with my hair down, and the fact that whenever I’m getting fancy I have a friend tackle my locks (like in the picture of Jen doing my hair above), I’m pretty challenged when it comes to fancy shmancy hair. And, since I’m attending a formal this weekend, I need some nice tips.
I own rollers, but my hair doesn’t hold a curl. I’ve got a lotta hair, so putting everything up with bobby pins will take a while, but it’s doable. I want some ideas from you guys that will look nice with this dress.
…’Cause I may resort to just wearing it down and straight. 😉
How FUN is this? One of my best friends from college, Dana, is now an admissions counselor for our alma mater. She sent this little jitty to me last week to show me I’m on a “Campus to Campus Day” brochure.
Dear Alyssa, go get lessons on how to “cheese” in a socially acceptable manner.
I guess they liked it because I look SO HAPPY to be a Catawba student. 😉
Got any Quinoa recipes? Give ’em to me!
Got some hair tips? I want those, too!
Ever been in a publication for your school? It took 5 years, but I got in!
