Random Round Up

My custom Lucchese boots are finally home. I am pretty obsessed with them. Never have I ever had such a great pair of boots and I plan to wear them for life.  Why do I always take selfies pre-makeup?!

I have been traveling an enormous amount lately for work which has meant a lot of lonely nights in hotels. Somehow I started watching New Girl on Netflix…this is strange because Zooey Douchewhatever is not someone I would typically like, but I love the show. It is seriously funny and cute. So watch it if you are looking for a new tv binge. Yesterday I was cleaning, it was raining, and Mike was napping, so I reluctantly started Breaking Bad. It is good. Duh.

We were supposed to have a big yard sale yesterday, but it rained on our parade. Everything in our house has a price tag on it. We are selling everything except the tufted craigslist sofa and chair I recently purchased, my favorite RL blue & white lamps, a couple sets of awesome pillows…and that’s pretty much it. I want a big yellow sign on the front of our house that says “EVERYTHING MUST GO” like furniture stores keep out year round. I have given away, donated, consigned or ebay’d probably 10 garbage bags worth of clothes and at least 50% of my shoe collection this year. It is an amazing feeling to have space in my closet again.

And last but not least, a Pinterest recipe round up:

One Pot Chicken Risotto – so I was thinking this was going to be a quick, easy version of real risotto. But it is just like making actual risotto except you add some chicken. It actually took longer to get the right consistency IMO. Probably won’t make it again.

Spicy Avocado Chicken Enchiladas – these were the heat. Delicious, easy, amazing the next day too. I will make these a million more times. I love enchiladas and this was a different type of sauce that is a great alternative to the red kind. Katie Perks…if you haven’t made these yet, you need to asap.

Easy White Chicken Chili – This was pretty good, especially if you aren’t afraid of a little cumin. I omitted the beans because they are gross to me, but next time I might add black beans instead of no beans at all.

Crispy Southwest Chicken Wraps – These were delicious. I totally hate all kinds of Mexican food, obvi. Cooking these in a skillet gives them a nice crispy outside. I will make these again and again.

Recipes on my radar:

Italian Drunken Noodles

Pretzel Cookies with Chocolate and Peanut Butter Chips – Whoa. Pretzels and chocolate always make me think of my sister. I will definitely be making these for the holidays.

Kale and Chicken Egg Rolls – I love homemade egg rolls. I usually bake mine, and would probably do that with these to make them a teeny bit healthier.

Chicken Sausage Brown Rice Stuffing with Celery and Mushrooms – um, Yum.

So that was like 3 posts in one, but one post is better than none.

  1. Let me preface by saying that I have been reading your blog for quite some time, which explains why I know where you live. I just wanted to prevent sounding stalkerish! Now that I’ve prefaced, I often visit my folks who live near Bertie County; so I was wondering if you have set a date to reschedule the yard sale? If I happened to be near the area when you had the sale (this is me assuming the sale would be in Windsor and not at your new place), I’d love to take a peak at some of your household goodies. Thanks! ~Marlo
