Take Two

Hi guys! How’s your day been? Hope you’ve had a lovely Friday 🙂

We have SUCCESS!

cake (2)

Tres Leches came out exactly the way it needed to after last night’s little fail. Just needs whipped topping, cinnamon garnish and a strawberry on the side 😉

Sangria success:


I got fresh OJ from the Main Squeeze to add to the Sangria when I went to get a smoothie with Jeni. I *could* have made my own fresh orange juice, but I have so many other things to make and didn’t want to mess around with the juicer.

Like tamales:


(That’s the masa, which I’ll fill the corn husks with, along with green chilies and cheese)

and enchiladas (two types: vegetarian and chicken), queso, chop veggies for the salad and guacamole.


A dinner party for 20 people is no joke… especially when your house is less than sparkling. I’ve got my work cut out for me!

Another thing..

I think our dinner table is way too small.


Is that an excuse to buy a new one??

Heh heh.



Here’s what I’m loving this week:

Military Glam 🙂

Think cargo pants, camouflage, polished hardware, study fabrics, deep green and earthy tones. Military style is cool because it adds a tough edge to an outfit and looks awesome with extra girly flair, like sparkles or feathers.

Like these shoes:

Lace-up front boots:

Outerwear: (I have a crush on this jacket)

Skinny cargos:

So what do you think?

Will you rock the military-inspired trend this fall?

I’m gonna get back to cooking, getting the casa ready and plan to sneak in a workout later tonight.

Enjoy your evening!


Something to think: Don’t let failure disappoint and discourage you… let it motivate and push you to do better the second time. Cake lessons translate to life lessons 😉
