Let's Talk Materialism: Style

I, at the birth of this here blog, had the intentions of making it a fashion blog. I later explained why it's not {here}, just for now. Perhaps, during the summer, I could be doing it, but I highly doubt the thousands of followers I have {haaa} visit here to see pictures of me in soccer clothes... or my undergarments. So, let's talk other people's style, that I just so happen to admire.
Firstly, blogs:

Thrifted Things: Oh how I love the things you put on your body. Thrift heaven.
I basically go here for all my "inspiration" needs. (I feel so fashion bloggy saying that. I mean, honestly, who REALLY gets inspired by clothing? It's fabric people, probably forcibly made and sweat upon in China).

Pikchas, via the ever inspiring Pinterest

Lace. I loved lace before all y'alls did. So get outta here.

Second. Bows. Kill me with cuteness

Swimsuits & shoes. Nuff said. 

Now, be done with this materialism, and go hug a baby.


Pinned it, Loved it: Round 2

This round has no loves. not one.
I am here to talk about one thing and one thing only: Flourless Chocolate Brownie Cookies {recipe}
Looks like the nectar of the Gods, yes?
WRONG. Made these with my home girls today because, well, they looked like THAT ^. I would greet obesity with pleasure if it meant I could eat those pictured. In real life? errmmmmmm. They spread out to the size of houses (didn't help that Celest made a few that were the size of a condo to begin with-- even so, my perfectly proportionate cookies still decided to blow out like explosive diarrhea). So, are they cookies? NO. Maybe if you put them in a pan and made brownies- they would, ya know, do their explosion thing and be durrnnn tastee.



In case you all didn't know (none of you knew- because I didn't tell you), mis amigas de Utah estan aqui! Our story is like that out of a book. Our mothers met when Celest and I were widdddle bebes swimming en utero, found out that they were due within 3 weeks of each other, and the rest, of course, is history. Then, a couple years later, a little ball of annoying named Mariah came along and stole our thunder (love you Mariah.) They're here to visit for the short time of about 10 days. So, posting will be scarce. toodles.



Pinned it, Love it.

If you follow me on Pinterest, which I'm 100% sure none of you do (missin' out folks)...
{if you would like to follow me, go here}
You would know that 87% of my life is consumed repinning darned recipes that i'm sure I'll never make. People, I have 1203 food pins. Help me. However, I actually did try out a couple, and here are my thoughts on each.
Pink Lemonade Gooey Butter Cookies- yummers
recipe: http://tastykitchen.com/recipes/desserts/pink-lemonade-gooey-butter-cookies/
FOOD, meet blog people. Blog People, FOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD.
Holy heavens, I could eat my way into my grave with these things. I did not use the pink lemonade cake mix (sounded a little white trash to me). Instead i opted for some decadent fancy looking good ole' lemon. I have a TOTAL anorexic friend (she denies it- it's real) who ate 10+ of these when I brought them to a beach party last week, at which i burned my rear end VERY NICELY. Then, on Saturday, I entered them into my church's county fair. Out of some 30 or 40 something desserts, second place. BOO TO THE YEAH. Do not cook these past 11 minutes.
Pumpkin pie cheesecake. I couldn't find the exact recipe I used, but I made this for Thanksgiving at a friends house. All I can tell you is that I slipped in little teensy chocolatey chips of goodness in between the pumpkin and cheesecake. Recipes all over pinterest. Yummers, but decadent. almost too much. beware.

S'more cookies. Holla at yo boy. Made these as gifts for Christmas, for lykk 50 ppl. I'm crazy, go ahead and tell me.

SO YEAH. There was another pin I can't find for the life of me about making a chocolate mousse type pudding from a blog called Chocolate Covered Katie. Love everything from her recipes but this. I suspect it's what the Devil eats. or Paris Hilton. Ew.


So I lied...

and guess what? MY pants AREN'T on fire.
In other words, lying is TOTALLY okay folks!
That was a lie too. It's not.
update on life.
I've gotten 3 (count 'em, 3!) BAD burns. Can you say burned rear cheeks? Hello toilet, you hurt.
I've spent many a time being athletic (hoorah! my body loves it). rock climbing, hiking, soccer, running, swimming, the beach, you name it.
I know, this blog is supss boring. But I passionately hate uploading pictures, so for now you have to deal with my text. My BLOG.



Why is this a chore?

All I can say is that blogging, oh, blogging, has become quite the chore. but i'm going to try to make this less painful, and write daily. Today is SO EXCITING. CLEANING ALL THE LIVE LONG DAY. YEAHHHHH.
