people, it's not hard.

don't buy this:
Zara, Cotton/Silk  Blouse, 59.99
when you can buy 6 of these, for that same price:
but as we all know, H&M, is incapable of letting us shop online in the USA, so get to your nearest H&M store.
these retail for $9.95!
unless, you want to buy 2 of the zara tops & send me one...

that is all.

summer salad obsession

a few weeks ago we went to San Francisco to visit Jon's sister & her family. her husband is italian and taught me how to make a few things.. crepes, molten lava cake and a delicious salad dressing! I love balsamic vinagrette and this is very similar. I created this salad after having a similar one a few times from the cafe under my office building. it was delicious, Jon loved it too!

- spinach mix
- turkey breast from the deli. (ask the your deli man to cut it extra thick, like a carved turker would be!)
- strawberries
- tomatoes (optional)
- goat cheese
- pecans (if you have them on hand!)

ingredients for dressing:
- balsamic
- olive oil
- honey
- dijon mustard

- mix all your dry ingredients. I shred the turkey, and break up the goat cheese into the smallest crumbles. (Goat cheese is a very soft cheese, kind of like cream cheese/blue cheese texture, and it has a strong taste; if you get a big bite of it, it's a little intense!)

to make dressing:
up-close deliciousness
- start with olive oil & balsamic, get the mixture to your tasting
- add the honey & dijon, whisk up! (you can use a fork for this, the fork you will eat dinner with!)
- add enough til you get the consistency/taste that you like the most. it's not really possible to mess this up, but I would recommend starting with a small amount, so that you don't have 1 cup of salad dressing and only need 1/4 a cup for dinner.

friday, friday gotta get down on friday

that's all the Rebecca Black I will ever quote, promise.

YEY it is Friday! I am really excited that we are staying in town (& also kinda happy we are guest-free, sorry friends.)

This weekend we are using the Christmas present I got for Jon on LivingSocial. A 10 hour fishing trip (for 65% off!) from Newport Beach.

This is what I am hoping for:
This is what I am dreading:

Yes, that I googled "Deadliest Catch" for this image..

So fishing trip is #1 great thing about Friday, here are some others..

2. Dispatch concert Sunday night!

3. I was asked to be a bridesmaid by one of my best friends, by way of super cute cookies!
4. The ridiculous amounts of pictures my dad has been emailing me of our cone-headed doggies that both had to have the same ear surgery last week.

Cone-headed gracie (see the cone?)

5. My friends convinced me to sign up for the Savannah Rock n Roll Half Marathon. Not sure if this goes under the happy or crappy list.. but I am trying to positive here.

6. This nailpolish, I am in love.

& to round out the postings, some cute pictures from Pinterest!

woof wednesday

a year ago today, my 2nd family, the Thomas family, lost their puppy. I remember the day they found Georgia at the park! their mom called my mom and said they found a dog, she was in the garage, and should they leave a light on for her over the night :) I was a little scared of Georgia at first, she was a sassy girl. but once we bonded over apples, cheese & butt-scratches, she became one of my favorite doggies.
one of Georgie's model shots!

Since Georgia was a true rescue, I knew I had to dedicate today's woof to her!

                                         Leesha, Fort Lauderdale, Florida
 "Meet sweet little Leesha! She was abandoned and found in the night box at the Wildlife Care Center. A Good Sam must have found her wandering and didn't know what else to do with her, so she put her in the Night Drop at the Wildlife Care Center. She is safe now and in one of our foster homes. She's about 8 months old, Looks to be a Jack Russell Terrier mix, and her rescuer said she is sooooo sweet!! As it turns out, her injured rear leg is an old injury. The good news is that she is not in any pain and she is using that leg for balance. She will walk with a bit of a limp - but that just makes her more charming. Real sweet little girl. Adoption fee $300. If you are interested in adopting, please EMAIL us for an application."

 Sandy, Weston, Florida "Sandy is a very sweet girl, about 58 Lbs and approximately 4.5 to 5 years old. . She is quiet, well-behaved in the house (it seems she was kept crated or in a run because she doesn't know to get on furniture - yea! Sandy is a dream on the lead, never pulling. She likes all ages of people. She is OK around larger dogs - and cats don't appear to hold much interest for her. She wants to be with her person(s) all the time, but is fine left for a half day uncrated. She has some allergies so eats no grain food. Sandy might be best with a couple or a family with tweens or teens. She's active and plays but doesn't quite know what the toys are for. Sandy has the most beautiful face and eyes and would adore a new family of her own. Come meet Sandy at Terri's in Weston."

If you love pups of all ages, & have a blog, please consider being part of Woof Wednesday!
