Ballou's Hair

Ballou's hair/fur is out of control right now! I have been trying to get a good picture with her hair grown out, but it really does not show up - you have to see it in person... I mean, I really think it is the longest it's ever been. I swear there is at least one person each time we are out for a walk that gives Ballou a double take - like "is that a real animal at the end of that ladies leash?". I think I am just going to keep it growing - I mean, everyone goes through at least one hippie stage it their life, right?

Hope you had a wonderful day and all is well in your wor\ld -sending a little love your way!

Poinsettia Time

Have I been MIA or what?! Life has been a little crazy lately, and working all day on a computer does not make coming home to blog on a computer very desirable. But, I think I have missed blogging enough to come back regularly; all I need to do now is work on getting a routine down. Please bare with me, as it may take a few weeks to find my groove again!

We just finished decorating for Christmas at work and our first poinsettia was delivered as well. I love poinsettias and  think they add just the right amount of color and hope for the holidays. This year, I do not know how much decorating I will do,  but you better believe I will have a big poinsettia on the table!

Ice Cream Time!

OHMYGOSH I want to try all of these ice-creams! They look amazing and would make any mouth happy - maybe not any tummy happy, but absolutely any mouth!

Broccoli with Almonds

Can you believe it's already the week of Thanksgiving! This year, we will be celebrating with John's family, and I am so  looking forward to eating and relaxing. Because I am "the vegetable expert" I'm in charge of some yummtastic veggie dishes. This Broccoli (pictured above - recipe found here) recipe seems to be right up the Thanksgiving Day alley, and I think it is absolutely worth trying out before Thursday!

Do you have any favorite Thanksgiving recipes that are vegetarian friendly?

Michelin Guide - Do You Follow?

Happy Friday! Have you checked out the 2013 Michelin guide yet? John and I went through the guide for Chicago, and were shocked at some restaurants that were left out - and others that were left on! Apparently, we are not the only ones that think like this, because WBEZ reported on the choices of the Michelin guide as well. Here's the article if you want to check it out!

Holiday Music

Are you into Christmas music? I've found this to be a "hot" topic around the Holidays, along with when to start decorating, and if Christmas is just a Hallmark Holiday. Some turn into Scrooges when these jingling tunes come on, and other feel the music warm them, like a big mug of hot cocoa. As you could probably guess, I am a Holiday music lover, and cannot wait to spend the next month rocking to Jingle Bells and Oh Holy Night - There are too many things in the World not to like, and Christmas Music is not one of those things.

Baby Coveralls

Wowza it is getting cold in Chicago! I wish L.L. Bean made these Fleece Coveralls in my size because I would totally wear it all winter long! 

But then again, they most likely would not look as cute on an adult... Babies - they can just pull off anything!

Going Green

It is time to cleanse my diet again! Every weekend seems to fill itself with unhealthy food choices - and I always end up saying "why not? It is the weekend after all!" - but there really are no days off when it comes to eating - as everything we eat - no matter what day it is - will effect our bodies and so much more.

 Today is a new beginning, and dinner tonight will be on the green side. This salad from Kitchen Konfidence is just what I was looking for to kick start my efforts. Doesn't it look wonderful? If you are in need of some extra green (not talking about the monetary kind!) then make this along with me and share in on the yummyness!

Friday Word

We are at the end of the week and the beginning of the weekend! It is amazing how quickly the Holidays sneak up - Thanksgiving is already in a few weeks!

Last year, I made a mini chicken for John, and he claims it made him sick (which I guess makes some sense I guess) - so this year, I will just have to stick to my veggie ways. The Pioneer Women (Whom I adore) has this amazing Blackberry cobbler, that I really want to make, and I think Thanksgiving is the perfect time to try it out!

Friday Word:

Ambrosial - exceptionally pleasing to taste or smell; fragrant and delicious.

*Synonyms: divine, yummy, pleasing, fragrant

Pear Sipper

Happy Thursday! I hope you are having a great week so far. Here is a drink recipe that would be perfect for a chilly Fall afternoon. This is non-alcoholic, but you could absolutely add vodka - I think we should all get to sipping!
