Update Through Photos

Hello blog world~
I have been so busy lately dealing with a lot of
bullshit, so I don't have much to share.  I know
I have been slacking when it comes to blogging,
so here are some photos from my recent
day-to-day shenanigans.

Random OOTD photo.
Knee High Boots w/ Buckles - Shiekh
Black Tights - Probably Target?
Navy Skirt w/ Pink Trim - H&M
Black Tank Top - H&M
Black 3/4 Sleeve Cardigan - Target

Went to the park last Saturday with Sara, her baby girl
Eden, and Ziggy.  We enjoyed the sun and wonderful
company, got bothered by a crazy lady, and then 
left and got some coffee.

Hung out with my cousin.  He is in the process
of getting his own blog going.  There are no posts yet,
but you can check it out here.  He's a wonderful
cook and we always enjoy spending time in the kitchen together.

But we did this instead this time.  Hahaha.

Mr. H and I attended mass on Easter Sunday to
make my grandma happy.  I normally attend mass with
my family on Christmas and Easter, as a gift to my
grandmother.  I was very happy that Mr. H went with me
this time.  I had someone to irritate besides my mom when
boredom and anger takes over.  ;)

Took silly pictures with Ziggy.

Got my new shoes that I ordered from
Charlotte Russe in the mail!  I was in desperate need
of new heels.  I am head over heels in love with the coral
wedges.  I really like the nude ones also.  They are my first
pair of nude pumps.


Mr. H had Wednesday off, so we went to
McCormick & Schmick's for the first time to try their
supposed "award winning happy hour."  Very disappointing.
And yes, I know the photo editing is silly.  Hahaha.
We left after one drink and headed to our favorite 
happy hour spot, Elephant Bar.  E-Bar never disappoints.

What I wore for Mr. H's day off:
Coral Wedges - Charlotte Russe
Skinny Jeans - Guess
Black Tank - Target
B&W Striped Wife Beater - PINK by Victoria's Secret
Leather Jacket - Urban Outfitters

That's all for this post!  Sorry that I never have
nice quality photos to share with you guys.  The only camera
that I use is my phone and honestly, I probably wouldn't
know how to use a nice camera if I had one.  ;)

For my next post, I will be sharing photos
of my dog's birthday.  Hahahaha.  Yes, as lame
as it is, I am having a BBQ for Ziggy's 3rd birthday.
I have done it for the past 3 years and don't plan
on stopping.  It's kind of just an excuse to hang out, eat, and drink
with friends.  But of course it's also because Ziggy is a good 
dog and deserves a birthday party.  Totally weird, I know.

Hope you all enjoy your weekend! <3

[Recipe] Nutella Cookies

I have a new recipe to share with you guys.  This one is pretty bad if you are a healthy eater or are trying to diet, but they are soooo delicious!  Pretty much anything with Nutella is delicious though, right?

What You Need:

  • 1 c. sugar
  • 2 1/2 c. flour
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 c. Nutella
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 1 tbs. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 c. white chocolate chips

Let's Bake:
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line your baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium sized bowl, mix (with a mixer) sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
  • Add in Nutella and cream cheese.  Mix well.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.  After your eggs, add the vanilla.  Set this bowl aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together your flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • Slowly add your Nutella mix into your flour bowl.  Mix until the bowls are well combined.
  • With a spatula, stir in the white chocolate chips.
  • Use a spoon to scoop rounded balls of dough onto the parchment paper.  They don't have to be perfectly round.
  • Bake for 11-12 minutes, allow to cool completely, and enjoy!
