It's the last day of August....

And I am sooooo stoked because you know what that means! All sorts of tasty treats to eat inside while it's cold out, hot chocolate, warm clothing, boots, jackets, tights, hats, yippee!!! I wait all year for this season, because I am absolutely in LOVE with Fall!!

Homemade Meals is Where it's At!

So I've been dying to try this recipe I found, on baked creamy chicken taquitos! It was a pretty simple recipe, and I loved that you had the choice between flour and corn tortillas, I used the flour tortillas and they were amazing! I also made homemade guacamole. I've been trying to be a little cook around here, using the millions of pots/pants/mixing utensils and you name it that sit in our cupboard not used often enough. Or maybe I'm just incredibly messy when it comes to cooking. But I'm ok with that. Because I feel awesome after I made some yummy food. Even if the sink is piled high. Good thing I like cleaning dishes.

What are your favorite things to make for dinner??

Mommy & Kid Dinner Party

So I'm pretty excited for tonight. It's not often that I cook (because of inexperience really...but I am trying to do it more often!) and it's also not often that I get to hang with one of my fav ladies over drinks and good food, while still doing it in the comfort of a nice home with the kiddos playing together. So tonight I am making homemade white chicken pizza, and peach sangria! Both recipes look entirely delicious.

1. Peach Sangria - I'm making a variation of this
2. White Chicken Pizza

What are your favorite dinner and drinks variations??

Roadtrips I'm longing to take...

Balboa Park, San Diego
Malibu Beach
Santa Cruz Boardwalk

I have been wanting to do a road trip for some time. I've been on little ones here and there this past summer to go to concerts, trade shows, and quick visits with friends. But there hasn't been enough time to actually SEE, EXPLORE, and DOCUMENT all the awesome things around me.

These are just a few places I want to go. What places have you been wanting to go to??

Summer is Not Quite Over...

But I am lusting for fall like mad. I can't stop thinking about all the fabulous clothes/accessories/jackets/boots that I can wear, because lets just face it, I'm not a summer girl. This fashionista has a hard time finding flattering clothing when you don't have much to work with (i.e. flimsy tops/shorts/short skirts etc) so the more I can cover up, the more comfortable I feel! Plus I just love the crisp air and yummy fall treats and picking out pumpkins...I can go on and on. Here a a few things that have been making me really excited lately:

What are you looking forward to during fall? What's your favorite season and why?

OC Fair

This weekend I packed up my little car so Riley and I could head down to Ontario to meet up with my friend Meghan, do a mini photo shoot for my line Hybrid Couture
swam in the pool for a little bit, then got ready to head down to Costa Mesa for the OC Fair! Tiger Army was playing, so I was really excited to see them since I love their music. Let me just tell you - they were INCREDIBLE live. The fair was also pretty amazing, vendors on every corner with every fried food you could imagine, and some pretty cool looking rides - with one that we actually went on called La Grande Wheel, the giant ferris wheel! I had my funnel cake - which I had been looking forward to all week. Make that all summer. Riley had way too much cotton candy and had a little too much fun at the concert throwing her her arms up in the air going "WOOOOO!" everytime the band was getting ready to play a song and people cheered. I was cracking up cause it was pretty darn funny.

Did you go to any awesome fairs this summer??
