Sparkly Nails

Jeweled nails. Bedazzled Nails. Glittery nails. I'm not sure what to call them...

But I think this would be a great look for NYE or holiday parties!
Love the gold.

Pat on the back for me

I did some serious Christmas shopping today.
Just need to find some supplemental gifts know? Sometimes the main gift needs a companion. A much smaller and cheaper companion.

Good luck to those still getting through the bulk of their shopping list.

Putting up Christmas

I think a lot of people put up their Christmas decorations the weekend after Thanksgiving. We usually wait until the first weekend of December, but I'm getting a bit antsy this year. I want to decorate!

What is your family's tradition?
And ever wonder when these family traditions even started?

Happy Thanksgiving

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast and a house into a home. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow."

Keep calm and be thankful via Pinterest

To me, this is an absolute must-try recipe:
Step-by-step instructions HERE

UPDATE: made these and they were a hit. Take my advice and cook the potatoes for a full hour prior to taking them out to add more cheese.

Hungry? Need lunch?

I would seriously recommend heading over to your nearby Safeway. They have a great deal: a sandwich, soup, and soda for only $5.49. I couldn't even finish it all! I ate half of everything and plan on having the rest tomorrow for lunch! So, two days worth of lunch for only $5.49? Great deal.

I ordered the...
Tuscan chicken sandwhich = yummy
Butternut squash soup = extra yummy

Lovely dress

I think Susan Sarandon's dress is so darn pretty! Not too crazy about her daughter, Eva Amurri's, wedding dress. I think it's because it seems a bit too simple for a wedding dress...and it's coordinated with her mother's dress.
But the lace is just so gorgeous. 
I would love to find a tailor around the Seattle area to make me something like this.
Both dresses are a Lela Rose creation.

One day...

...I'll make something like this. I need to start collecting about 200 ornaments first. And I will collect them slowly because I am not willing to pay full price for ornaments.

But I love the idea. Visit here to see the steps.

Bye bye Husky Stadium

We said goodbye to husky stadium on Saturday. The huskies played their last game in their beloved stadium against Oregon on a cold crisp Autumn day.

They took an awesome 360 picture of the entire stadium and fans. To check out the picture (you can zoom super close) go this website! I was able to find myself in the crowd!!

Did you know Tiffany & Co. made purses and clutches? I didn't.

Here are my thoughts...

Hi guys. First off: my apologies. I haven't blogged in awhile. I'm not really sure if I ever had any regular readers, but if I did, I'm sorry for not posting.
Life has been happening over on my end. I graduated from grad school and now I no longer bear the title of student. It's interesting though, how while I was in grad school, everything tanked. Job opportunities are quite slim. It's frustrating for me. I worked hard for 8 years assuming I was working towards something. But, nope. Unemployment is hitting me too. A new graduate with a doctorate has joined the large population of America's unemployed.
Trying very, very hard to keep my spirits up.

I think I will have more time to invest in my blog now.
I need to spruce somethings up over here. All the other bloggers have gotten so fancy. Wowza.
Hugs to you all.
I included some pics of white chairs.
I like white chairs.

Bridesmaids VS Hangover 2

I saw both of these movies this weekend and both are absolutely hilarious! However, if I had to pick, I would recommend Bridesmaids over Hangover 2. Why?
  • I think Bridesmaids has funnier moments. Hangover 2 has more of a shock value to you end up laughing out of shock.
  • I was so impressed with Kristen Wiig. She's actually a fabulous actress! I don't think you realize it while watching her on SNL. And everyone had such great chemistry in the movie.
  • The Hangover crew is adorable.
  • Bridesmaids is absolutely NOT a chick flick. I honestly think everyone would enjoy it.
