Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Hey everyone! How is your week going? I haven't blogged in over a week. There has been a lot going on in life and I had to be there to comfort a very close friend going through a very hard time. Over the years I have come a lot closer with some friends and grew apart from some. It happens. I am happy to be there for my friends and family that I have close to me :-)

Happy St Patrick's Day! Are you irish? Are you going out to participate in any bar hopping or green beer drinking today? I did buy some cute green clothes soooo I think I will have to go out for a little while and partake in some celebrating today! I am not a fan of beer really so not sure what will be wetting my whistle :P
It has been over 60 degrees yesterday and today in Wisconsin so I am ready for spring and warmer weather... please!!!!

Last week I posted about the acrylic make up organizer that was on the Kardashian girls show. I really loved the look of this and had to have it. Unforunately it was over $300 & there was no way I was going to shovel that out for a plastic box (basically). I searched and searched and finally found a deal on ebay. I love ebay. I am a new proud owner of a gorgeous makeup organizer... check it out...

Looks great on my vanity...

Please ignore my messy bed with no sheets on it... in the process of washing them haha

I made a yummy pasta dish that Angela created a couple weeks ago and ever since I saw her post about it I knew I had to make it. 

I used 2 servings of brown rice pasta and cooked the pasta in boiling water w/ some salt and olive oil  for 10 minutes. Drained the pasta with cold water and added the delicious avacado topping to the pasta.

~ 1 Avacado
~2-3 T minced garlic (I love garlic)
~2 T lemon juice
~2 T olive oil
~salt & pepper to taste

Process these ingredients in food processor until smooth and creamy.
Add to cooked pasta. Since I rinsed my pasta it was cold. I reheated in a pan on the stove until it was hot and devoured. Oh so yummy.

I plan on eating something green today in honor of the irish :) I know that I will not have a lot of time to cook up a storm so it will be something quick and easy.

I got some highlights in my hair yesterday to brighten me up before my vacation to California next week.

Weird angle but I wanted you to see the top of my head where you can see the color the most.

Also check out these amazing pics at dusk I took while on a drive around the lake.

Such pretty colors of pink and purple. Can you believe these were taken with my android phone?? While in a moving vehicle at that?? haha!!

30 day Challenge Continues:

Day 17: Something you’re looking forward to- My Californication (LOL) next week

Day 18: Favorite Place to Eat - Wasabi (fantastic veggie sushi with black rice + fresh wasabi root) located in Brookfield, WI, Cafe Manna in Brookfield, WI (Vegan, Raw Cafe), Casablanca's in Milwaukee, WI (hookah bar + amazing food).

Day 19: Something you miss - I miss being a child, which can mean quite a lot. I miss long summer vacations. I miss playing with my little brother and cousins all the time. I miss not having to worry about money or paying the bills. I actually miss school and all the fun that went into it as well.

Enjoy the day!
