friday finds

Thursday, January 22, 2015
Hiya ladies! This Friday's post is going to be more of five recaps from my past week, rather than my typical "favorites / finds". 

one //

After spying the LC Lauren Conrad collection (for Kohl's) on Biana's fabulous blog and falling in love with it, I finally got my hands on two items - the marled grey leggings and pointelle back knit sweater.

Leggings / Sweater / Slippers (BBW old, similar)

 two //

I'm loving Old Navy for cute kids clothes right now. Aubrey and I picked out this new outfit the other day and everything was on clearance! Sweater, tank, leggings, and boots all from ON! She's super excited because the boots have the tiniest wedge heel :)

three //

This little guy fits in Deedee's old pajamas! So he has been spending his days snuggled up in hand-me-down jammies...sometime chewing on them as you can see near the back leg ;)

four //

More products of my recent cooking kick...
Oriental Cole Slaw Salad and Classic Shepherd's Pie - I'll be sharing the recipes soon!
Both super easy to prepare and very tasty!

five // 

Aaron and I went out on Sunday night to celebrate my birthday. We go to the same restaurant every year, Cantina's one of my favorites, but pretty pricey, so that is why it's saved for my bday.

Ensalada De Camaron con Miel - so delicious!!
Grilled shrimp, jicama, mangos, roasted walnuts, and goat cheese crumbles with a tropical honey vinegarette dressing.

  And the main reason we love this place (besides the margaritas ;)...the dessert.
Well, one in particular. It is hands-down THE BEST dessert I have ever had.

Mexican Apple Pie
Sizzled in brandy butter and topped with cinnamon ice cream.
Aaron and I always share one, because hello! It's so rich and probably 1,000 calories if you ate it by yourself lol! I think we polished it off in less than 5 minutes ;)

And I know that is five, but I have one extra thing to share ;)
If you missed my recipe post on Wednesday, check it out here!
