Yummy Tortilla Soup Recipe

[link to recipe]

I am a sucker for Tyler Florence's recipes.  Generally, I don't make them often because they usually aren't very good for you.  Anyone who has watched this show has heard him say things like: "I love bacon!" and "Now add a little butter, like half a stick."

His tortilla soup recipe is great (and healthy). The first time I made it I did not fry my own tortilla chips because I was lazy.  K-man made this last night and did fry his own tortilla chips and it was totally worth it--do NOT skip that step!  To make it super easy, he used store-bought organic chicken stock and shredded a roasted chicken for the meat.

*note: The picture is a 'representation' of the soup (via flckr), we ate our soup before I realized I wanted a picture! It did look like that, I swear :)

Wedding Outfit!

One of my best friends is getting married in a couple of weeks (yay!). What do you think of my planned outfit? Keep in mind it is a fall/winter wedding but it is also in Florida so it will also be pretty warm. These two facts presented quite a conundrum for me to be honest.

This also gives me a chance to tell you about one of my current time wasters that my sister in-law introduced me to:

I guess they flock together.

I was conflicted about this post because I don't want to give this guy anymore coverage than he's already gotten, but then I thought "Get over yourself! You have like four readers." lol

Anyway, here's a picture:

 Who's that guy on the left?  Balloon boy's father.  Who's that guy on the right?  Scott Stevens, P-town's beloved weatherman who quit a few years ago to pursue researching his theories that the Japanese are creating hurricanes using lasers and such. The two are research and business partners.

more makeup

So my most-viewed posts are the makeup reviews.  Here are some more of my favorite products:

As a habitual non-sleeper, I have dark circles under my eyes.  My go-to under eye concealer is Benefit Erase-Paste:

This pot will last you forever, literally.

My favorite mascara is Lash Blast by covergirl.  This mascara is all-encompassing (i.e. lengthening and thickening), will not flake, and is cheap to boot!  I love it

I woke up today and it was snowing.  Needless to say I'm not too happy about it. As a consequence the house is cold and we had to turn on the heat.

Here is my cat Cayley:

I'm beginning to think she has the right idea.  She has been sacked out all day as close to the heating vent as she can get.  She is wedged between the wall and an end table.  What's that she's using as a pillow, you ask? A nice warm kitty bed......No, she won't actually get in the nice warm kitty bed, she just likes to use it as a pillow.

Great Movie

I saw "Whip It" over the weekend and am kind of in love with it :)
