Hello 26!

Saturday, November 29, 2014

Today is my 26th birthday. I'm pretty excited because I'm OFF and I'm looking forward to my three-day weekend!

I'm still not sure what we're going to do. I'm thinking of watching The Hunger Games - Mockingjay Part 1. Then later do some drinks and food downtown. But that plan isn't set in stone.

I got some pretty awesome things for my birthday.

Birthday Presents

1. Classic Bombshell Pinup Tank in Coral from LeBomb Shop
2. Flamingo Full Skirt from Dressed to Kill Clothing
3. Basic Black Crinoline from Cats Like Us
4. Claire Scrunch Flat in Menswear from Payless
5. Martha Stewart Enameled Cast Iron 6 Quart Casserole in Teal from Macy's
6. Keurig Elite K40 in Red from Walmart

I'm not very good with waiting patiently so I've had these for a while already. Some of them have already been used...more than once. I'm looking at you, Keurig. 

My parents bought me the dutch oven and my mum and I used it to make some Chicken Pozole Verde the other day.

It came out really delicious. The day we made it, it was actually a tad bit chilly so it put the warmth back into our bones. The recipe was pretty easy and when I get a chance I'll post it on here. 

I also received my first Stitch Fix box. Out of the five things they sent me I liked three so I'm pretty excited to try them out again. Unfortunately I got the package on Wednesday (the day before Thanksgiving) and tried the stuff on really quickly so that I could send the package back and I wouldn't be charged for everything. Which means I didn't get to take pictures and fashion them for the blog. I KNOW, I KNOW! Missed opportunity!  But I did buy a sexy wool dress that I'm excited to have an opportunity to wear. I'll definitely post pictures of that in the near future as well. 

I just seriously can't believe that it's already the end of November. There's only one more month to go to this great 2014 year. I know it will be busy with work, fun stuff, holiday shopping, and my favorite - New Year's Eve but for now I'm just going to enjoy my birthday.
