Sorry for that momentary lapse of adulthood.. It seems you can dress the girl up but you can't take the child out of the girl.. No really, I'm usually well behaved.... 

I've been having a lot of 'A Hah!' moments with my closet recently- maybe it has something to do with the change of season, maybe not- but this outfit is the result. I've been contemplating a t-shirt over a button down for sometime now, and while I was staring at my pile of new, unworn clothes it kinda just hit me.. Like I said, a lot of stuff has just been hitting me lately (possible reason for hanging on the clothes line...) Anyway.... I tried this out with black skinny jeans first and it didn't quite work, then a gray skirt- nope that didn't work either, then this black skirt.. (A Hah! moment 'cause I forgot I had this skirt). Then I had to clean my room- Oops.

How many times do you go through pieces of an outfit to make it just right??

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Crepes





Best Friend came over last week and we made crepes for lunch. We used to make them all of the time a few years ago... They're SO good!

I got the recipe from from mom's Weight Watchers Cookbook, but i'll reproduce it here for your convenience :)

INGREDIENTS:
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg (we used cinnamon)
1 cup fat free milk
2 large eggs lightly beaten
Fruit ( we used strawberries and bananas (and powdered sugar)

DIRECTIONS:
Combine the flour, salt, nutmeg/cinnamon in a medium bowl. In another bowl, combine the eggs and milk. Whisk the milk mixture slowly into the dry ingredients until smooth. Let stand for 15 minutes.
Coat an 8 in non-stick skillet with cooking spray and heat until hot (I used medium heat).
Stir the batter, and using a 1/4 cup mixing cup, pour the batter into the skillet and tilt it in all directions to coat the skillet. It will be very thin. Cook for about 1 1/2 minutes on one side then about 15-20 seconds on the other side.
Start the process over with each crepe. We made about 8 from this recipe.

You can fill your crepe with anything you want, we always made our crepes with fruit so thats what we did :)

Enjoy!
