the mister has been wanting to have taco night for a few weeks and we did it.
I found a pin to this recipe for homemade taco seasoning... tastes just like the seasoning you get in the store and you can make a ton of it if you want to keep having taco nights OR just enough for your meal.
tomatoes, cheese, shredded lettuce
yay for toppings!
that's fake meat trying to masquerade as real ground beef.
don't let it fool you, fool.
all together now.
delish. we inhaled it and decided we should have more taco nights.
my sweet sweet niece's birthday party was the other weekend and she asked me to help with decorations. I'm really loving bunting right now (well, really for the last few years) so I figured I'd do a tutorial on how to make a fabric bunting (so it will last and she can hang it in her room after the party)
I gathered up some fabric scraps, cut a triangle template out of card stock, grabbed a spool of ribbon (not shown) and pulled out the old sewing machine (also not shown)
ignore the glue gun... he's such a ham trying to get in all my crafting pictures.
using the card stock template, I cut out 18 triangles. If you want it to look really super awesome and nice, iron your fabric. I hate ironing so I just let it be wrinkled and called it rustic.
See it's easy to call things rustic or organic just by being lazy!!
pulled out a couple of feet of ribbon and then started folding it in half over the top of the triangles and sewing it. If you're not a sewing kind of person, I suppose you could give the glue gun a little action. Just be careful!! Depending on your fabric and your tolerance for pain, the heat may burn you!!!
Today is my birthday. Mondays are not the best days to have a birthday so I'll share with you my birthday weekend...
my cute mister and me! he's the best. can't wait to hang with him tonight.
it's always hot around my birthday, but holy crap. 110? Really? Thank goodness it's raining today.
Friday evening, my sweet friend Amanda made me some rosemary lavender salt scrub... the best part about this? the yoga poses shrinky dinks! Makes me want to time travel to 1986 for a few hours and play shrinky dinks with my 8 year old self.
after we had dinner with our favorite couple, we drove over to this new popsicle joint in town called Steel City Pops. They have some pretty great flavors. I got banana, which had cinnamon in it, which was amazing.
We went back on Sunday and I got pineapple jalapeño. Equally amazing.
let's just skip over to Sunday.
I made my own cake (I always do... I like baking my own birthday cake)
My sister-in-law, her boyfriend and his roommate (formerly my husband's roommate) made dinner for us. I bet you think we had Mexican... nope. Pizza.
