Bring on the Bubbly

Oh how I've missed this little blog. I was sweetly reminded by a friend yesterday that it has been far too long since I posted (I blame having way too much fun celebrating the holidays in San Diego)so this goes out to Mr. Michael Whalen, who has patiently waited since December 18th for a post. 
And shocker...it's more cake.


What better way to ring in the New Year then with some sparkling champagne cupcakes? I say bring it. This year has been absolutely crazy busy and full of so much excitement – new marriage, new job, new city. Thank you so much for coming along for the ride. Until next year loves!
Cheers

Almost too Pretty to Eat

Tulle and Pointy Toes


On saturday night we had the pleasure of attending The Nutcracker for the first time and now I am on a total ballet kick. The music, the twirls, the costumes, I love it all. Though I am completely tempted, I promise not to have any "tutu moments" in the near future because lets be honest, unless you are Carrie Bradshaw or a prima ballerina, it just doesn't work. So, instead I might don some pretty ballet flats and do a few twirls a la Sugar Plum Fairy and call it a day. Here is a roundup of some fashionable contenders. Happy Monday!

A Little Taste of Home


If you read my blog, you probably know that I am ever so slightly obsessed with the musings of Smitten Kitchen. I literally die over every single one of her recipes and the Huevos Rancheros are no exception. As a California transplant, I have been craving mexican food ever since I set foot in Beantown and as somewhat of a connoisseur, tex-mex just.doesn't.cut.it. I want the real stuff and I soon realized that the only way to get the real stuff was to make it myself so that I did. The Huz and I gorged our little bellies on Huevos Rancheros all weekend and it was fantastic. 
Get the recipe here and for the love of all that is holy, please oh please don't use salsa in a jar. Make it yourself! I promise you,it is soooo much better that way.

Color Arranging

Inspired by pretty bookcases and lots and lots of color, I decided to take inspiration from these images...



 and turn one empty bookshelf and our gigantic collection of books into a pretty little work of art. A saturday well spent if you ask me.
