Happy Birthday Mom!

Saturday, March 1, 2014

Happy birthday to the most loving mom in the world. Whether it be surprising me with treats from Home Goods, dropping everything to help me shop for plants or hosting the most welcoming dinner parties for both old and new friends of mine, she is nothing short of amazing. 

I love her so much and I am so glad we live four miles apart. I did that on purpose so she can never get rid of me. 

P.S. She made our costumes in the picture above. I am the adorable brown mouse and Lisa is the distracted white rabbit.  

Mini Puddin' Cups with Graham Cracker Crust

Thursday, February 27, 2014

One of my best girlfriends came over for dinner the other night and I wanted to make a dessert that was diabetic friendly, but not diabetic friendly obvious. Does that make sense? I mean, I didn't want to pull out a bag of sugar free candy and say "have at it." I was at the store picking up the pollo asado Jared was going to BBQ for dinner and wandering around looking for dessert inspiration. I thought pudding would be fun because it's sugar free and who doesn't love pudding?! Next to the pudding are the pie crusts and I discovered these miniature graham cracker pie crusts! I have never seen them before! They're like 3 inches in diameter and freaking adorable. On my way out I grabbed some strawberries (for a killer deal at $.99) and dessert was a go. I probably don't even need to tell you how I made them because it's pretty obvious but I will anyways:

Have I Told You Lately?

Have I told you lately...

that I made Jared go with me to this great nursery in Mission Hills to pick out some new babies? Their succulent selection is divine but we left empty handed because I seriously could not decide on just one.

that my brother-in-law barbequed up some ah-mazing pollo asado from the Mexican market? I sprinkled mine with cheese and avocado and it was heaven in my mouth and low carb!

that this girl has been seriously cray as of late? She has to sleep not just in our bed but on our heads and completely freaks out if you try to move her. Plus, she likes to sit on top of our headboard like a complete weirdo and just stare down on us during the night. Where's her boyfriend? She probably scared him away, that's where. Can't say I blame him.
