Snowboarding Gear

So my latest notion is to "hit the slopes" with my girlfriends!
Y'all know by now...I'm a summer chick!  Cold weather just doesn't do it for me however, I am dying to learn or at least ATTEMPT to snowboard! I have never even tried skiing!!
Have I lost my mind? 
Should I just set sail to the tropics instead?!

I think what has me most excited about this adventure is the kick a$$ threads!!
So as I said...I'm clueless about what I will need but, if I had to pick,
these would be packed in my bag!

sunnies   pants    jacket    beanie    gloves     snowboard

Where are some of your fave ski lodges?
Any tips or tricks of the trade for us clueless girls before we give it a whirl?!

Lasting change does not happen overnight...
Lasting change happens in infinitesimal increments,
a day an hour, a minute, a heartbeat at a time.

Sugar and Spice...

My girlfriends are at it again...Bringing more precious angels into this world!
Yesterday, one of my very best friends found out she will be welcoming a little girl!
So in honor of her new little darling...Some amazing nursery's and "big girl" rooms that I adore.


Sugar and Spice

Sugar and spice
and everything nice
that's what little girls are made of

Sunshine and rainbows
and ribbons for hair bows
that's what little girls are made of

Tea parties, laces
and baby doll faces
that's what little girls are made of...

One of my fave southern treats would have to be fried green tomatoes!
Nothing about 'em goes along with my "new healthy lifestyle" BUT, I just about dropped my boring, plain grilled chicken and tuna when I laid eyes on Fried Green Tomatoes covered in another fave Pico De Gallo!
Holy Bananas...I need cheat day STAT!

For The Love Of Cooking

I have a major love for risotto and yesterday I had the absolute best dish at Piazza Italia in Durham, NC (Brightleaf area...if you're ever in NC check it out).
Lunch with the ladies couldn't have been better!
Sun dried tomatoes, artichokes, spinach, and capers tossed in risotto...DELISH!

Here's another way to serve risotto up!

Much Needed Cali Repeat...

I apologize up front for the repeat but, this colorful California home makes me swoon with delight!
This home has been featured on House Beautiful for sometime now and I always find myself going back, just to dream of my own little Cali pad one day!

I will take the beach cruiser along with the picket fence too

mulit patterns of color...total win!

Is that J Adler I spy....

pink fridge...so necessary

This outdoor space is one of my all-time FAVES...major girltime catch-ups would happen in this area!

For The Love Of Cooking

Gnocchi is one my faves-Probably because it's a petite dumpling made from potatoes...AND we all know I'm a complete carbaholic... 

I was beyond stoked when I discovered this variation from the classic Italian gnocchi dishes that we usually see!

Pumpkin Ricotta Gnocchi

Are you a fan of gnocchi? 
My mom who is also a total carb-junky is not a fan which i find super odd!
