Happy Anniversary to Me!

When I smiled before, my eyes looked liked little slits.

My face was so large, it almost covered up my eyes.  I was THAT kind of fat.  When I smiled I appeared jolly.  Shiloh?  Jolly? 
Um... No.

This lady was not jolly.

Loft Shopping Spree

One of my pans died today.

I meant to turn on the rear burner not the front burner, and this is what happened!  So long, Pampered Chef Bar Pan.  I will kind of miss you.  You were really heavy, and I used you mostly to keep food warm in the oven. 


Moving on.

Spinach & Feta Turkey Burgers



I have had such a problem with turkey burgers.  They're not moist enough.  They fall apart when I grill them.  They're bland.  It can be so frustrating, and I love a good burger.  I've tried a few recipes and they just haven't worked.

Hazelnut French Macarons

One word:  divine.

That's how I describe an afternoon of conversation and coffee with my lady friends.  And what do you serve when you're expecting their company?  Well, the best, of course!

FALL TRENDS 2012

I will not be modeling any clothes in my fashion posts.

My fashion posts are going to be about clothes that I would actually buy if I
  • could afford them
  • could fit into them
  • they looked great on me
*just because you fit into them doesn't mean they look great on you!

Right now I'm dealing a lot with bullet #1.  Bullets #2 and #3 have become much easier to deal with because I've lost some weight. Yay me!  Hence, the fashion blogging. I've always felt my taste was sophisticated, but how can you prove it when you wear a size 22?  Sure I always looked decent, but trust me, fatties, you will have so much more to choose from once you drop those el bees.

Like this:

This jacket sports a peplum, and while it's quite a charming piece, I would never have tried it on before.

A Package? For me?

I love getting mail. I love getting packages even more.

This cardboard box with the swirly pink and brown sticker?
