Miscellany Monday

St. Patty's Day is probably one of my favorite days of the year.
I want to randomly have color days all year long.
Who's with me?
Am I the only one who is sad that it will be a whole year until we get to deck ourselves out in green, green, and more green?!
 Here are a few pics from my fabulous day!  More to come when I do my recap posts.

I LOVE Chicago and every time I visit, I want to live here!!
No joke....there is just something about this city.  
Other than the fact that one of my very favorite people lives here!!
One of my favorite pictures that I've taken while I've been here.

Meet Crosby.  Crosby is Shelby's 4 year old Puggle.
He is awesome, right?
I'm so in love with him...his ears, those eyes, and his sweet little cuddly self.
He also makes me miss my sweet little furbaby back home.
Don't think that I forgot about her, I got her a special souvenir  to take back home to her.  :)

One of my very fave deal sites, Hautelook, had an Erin Condren deal a few weeks ago that I purchased.... $25 for $50 worth of products from ERINCONDREN.COM
I jumped on this deal because I have been dying for a life planner, but couldn't pay $50.
However, I COULD pay $25.
I just ordered mine!!
I chose this one and I am so super stoked about getting this little jewel in a few weeks.

Shelbs and I went on a shopping spree the other day and here are some of my new items.
Forever 21 has always been my store of choice.  I bought every color cami that they had in my size for $2.50 each.  You seriously cannot beat that.
The zipper cardigan is amazing and I know that I will wear it a lot this spring!!
The crossbody and the flats both came from Old Navy and I'm obsessed with both of these items.
I'm super excited to sport that peach blazer.
Ahhh I just love spring and spring fashion.

Ok moving on.
I'm also linking up with one of my faves for Smell the Roses.
Never heard of it...go to her blog now and check it out.

Last week's task was to try a new recipe.
Although I can't really take credit for making this recipe, I did thoroughly enjoy it!
My first night in Chicago, Shelby's fabulous boyfriend made us ground turkey tacos.
I had never tried ground turkey and probably never would have tried it if it were up to me, but it was delish!!  Turkey is a great, healthy alternative to beef or even chicken and it really didn't taste much different.
If you have never tried replacing turkey in a recipe, please do it.
You won't be sorry!

I hope you guys will go link up with 2 of my favorite gals.
Happy Monday!!  I'm enjoying my last full day in Chicago!

AND AHHH I'm so excited for you to get your planner.
You're gonna LOVE it. Yes, all caps. LOVE ;)

I've always wanted to visit Chicago! It's one of the only bigger cities in the U.S. that I haven't been fortunate enough to see!

P.S. I love St. Patrick's Day too! So fun!

Beverly said...

I totally saw those green clover shades this past weekend and I'm a huge fan!! I'd rock those even on non St. Patty's days!

Your turkey tacos look scrummy too!! I'm a huge fan of potato and ground turkey tacos... sounds odd, but I pinky promise they're sooo good! The potato is diced in little pieces, and cooked so it's soft ... YUMMM-OH!!

Happy Monday girl!

Jamie said...

Hey girl! I LOVE your St. Patty's day accessories :) And I am super super jealous of your $25 planner! I want one so bad but cannot justify spending that much...and neither can my hubby :/ One day though!

And those tacos look so good! I want tacos so bad right now :)

Have a great week!

<3 Jamie
