First…My gosh am I terrible about this blogging thing. After reading a book by Gretchen Rubin called The Happiness Project however, I’m working on this!
So because I’m from Indianapolis, I have to brag on my city from time to time! People underestimate us. They call us hillibillies, they only talk about the race, etc.. But I LOVE Indy! I think we provide opportunities of a big city, without a big city feel!
So when Chowdown Midtown was going on, I decided with some friends to try out Recess. A newer establishment in Indy, boasting local fresh ingredients. They change their menu daily, and unless you check out the website that morning, you will find out when you get there!
I loved the atmosphere, it was quality food, yet not in a stuffy dining atmosphere. The menu that night included a salad with tomato vinaigrette, bass, beef tenderloin, and strawberry shortcake. Each course was just as a delicious as the next, and even though I claim to hate seafood, I gobbled that bass up at incredible speed! All the courses were perfectly light and fresh, so I felt satisfied without feeling full and heavy. I will definitely be visiting again, and hope more Hoosiers stop by to try something new and have a fantastic dining experience!
So I’m super excited because as of today I’m an Independent Sylist for Stella and Dot! I’ve been thinking about it for a long time because I am massively obsessed with the jewelry, and finally took the plunge and went for it.
Working on setting up my first show, but if anyone is interested in hosting a trunk show, or just checking out some cute jewelry visit my site! http://stelladot/com/sites/gstahl Below are some of my favorite summer pieces!
So I’m going to admit, that this blog post isn’t earth shattering by any means. But thought maybe someone else could simply use this idea as it just occured to me today!!!
So I fell in love a few weeks back with these delicious ham and cheese croissant pockets at Traders Joe’s. At 600 calories, and about $5 for two, it wasn’t something I felt like I needed to eat every week however. I’m not huge into couponing, but for some reason Pillsburry coupons run aplenty at our apartment, so decided I’d use crescents to whip up something for my lazy friday dinner.
I bought the roll out crescent dough and split into 4 squares. Chopped up some swiss and ham, folded over and sealed edges, and popped in the oven at 350 for 10 minutes. Easier, cheaper, and just as delicious as my croissant obsession!
I can’t wait to make these with a variety of ingredients stuffed in, and I’m kinda mad at myself for not coming up with this realization a while ago!
So I peek now and then at a blog from a college friend http://theperfectcompilationtape.blogspot.com/ And she recently did a Top 5 Celebrity Crushes. This of course got me thinking of my own, and then thanks to a tv show I’m currently watching that now has me lusting over one of them, I thought now was the time. As Meghan also noted, these span my lifetime, so don’t be frightened folks! 🙂
1: Devon Sawa
Oh my goodness, first crush for sure. I believe I was around 10. I happened to see Little Giants and Casper in the same weekend. It was love at first sight.
2: Matthew Lillard
You will notice a theme of funny men and that’s how this one fell in. He was my big high school crush. Most of my friends didn’t understand, but I loved him in Scream. Really funny, cute, slightly dorky. Its my real life type too 🙂
3: Channing Tatum
I seem to be drawing a blank to who I dug in college, so we are jumping to Channing Tatum. I mean I don’t need to say much more, these pics say it all. This man is delicious!
4: John Krasinksi
Remember how I said I liked that dorky/funny/cute thing? Enter John Krasinski. I actually was melting a little just digging for pictures of him.
5: Justin Timberlake
J.T. gets the top spot, because he has managed to span a good 15 years of crushing. I was an N’Sync fan, with him being my favorite. He then branched out on his own and got even sexier and more grown up. Then he starts showing up on SNL and let’s be honest, he can outfunny half the cast! Cute, funny, can sing and dance his ass off? Sold!
