My incredibly fashionable friend Alex had a a link to The Sartorialist on her blog a couple weeks ago. So I clicked on the link and fell in love with this website. Scott Schuman worked in the fashion industry for years and now on his blog he posts gorgeous pictures, mostly of stylish people he meets on the street. He says on his blog, "When I worked in the fashion industry (15 years), I always felt that there was a disconnect between what I was selling in the showroom and what I was seeing real people (really cool people) wearing in real life." I'm getting totally inspired by the beautiful and confident women (and men for that matter) he posts pictures of.

This girl has been my favorite so far. Isn't she fabulous?

And since it's Fall fashion show time he's also been posting amazing pictures from all the runway shows. I'm in love with these clothes from Jonathan Saunders. The colors are fantastic!

Savory Chicken Bites

This is my cousin Lori's recipe and it is so delicious and so easy to make! I've made two batches in the last week. Enjoy!

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1/4 tsp onion salt
1/8 tsp dried oregano
1/8 tsp dried thyme
1 cup fined chopped chicken
2 cans refrigerated crescent roll dough

*To cut down on the calories I used light cream cheese and reduced fat crescent rolls. I also added quite a bit more chicken so I could add more filling to each roll.

Mix first 6 ingredients then add in the cooked chicken. Separate 2 cans of crescent roll dough into 8 rectangles and press perforations to seal. Spread about 1/2 cup cream cheese mixture over each dough rectangle. Roll dough, jellyroll fashion, pinch seams to seal. Cut each roll into 5 pieces; place seam side down on lightly greased baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.

White Chicks

I'm interning at Good Things Utah this semester. Well on Thursday we had some pretty sweet guests...Shawn and Marlon Wayans! They were hysterical! And they even let the lowly interns snap a photo with them. Check them out making chocolate cupcakes with Reagan and and Tami Vincent (from Kneaders Bakery).

Bones is my newest addiction. I just can't get enough. If I had nothing else to do I'd probably just sit on my couch all day watching this show. How did I never know about this before my mission?! I love all of the characters but of course the main eye candy is FBI agent Seeley Booth aka David Boreanaz. I totally loved Buffy and Angel as a teenager and Mr. Boreanaz is just as dreamy now as he was then...even without the fangs. The fall season premiers on September 23rd and I cannot wait to find out what happens when Booth and Breenan are reunited after their one year sabbaticals! I'm such a sucker for these love stories that tease you season after season until the main characters finally get together. You know the ones: Jim and Pam, Ross and Rachel, oh and my personal favorite...Louis and Clark. The suspense kills me!


This had me laughing out loud today! I never knew the combination of Ellen and the US Open could be so funny. And while you're at it check out this one too. Enjoy!

She's back!

Hey y'all! Well I've been back from my mission in South Carolina for almost three whole months now! I've been meaning to get back to the blogging world but I've just been too dang busy catching up on TV shows, movies, music, and books I missed while I was gone. A girls got to have her priorities, you know? I had a fab summer going on vaca with my fam and traipsing around p-town with my best friend Karen. Highlights included trips to Yosemite, Sequoia, San Diego, and the Cedar City Shakespeare festival. I also got to hit up the Home Run Derby and All Star Game at Angel's Stadium. Karen and I earned our fair share of frequent shopper miles at Target and H&M and ate plenty of 100 calorie Klondike Bars (sooooooo good). And who can forget my first open mic night at the Gypsy Den in Santa Ana! No I didn't perform...just listened and drank out- of -this-world hot chocolate. Now I'm back in Provo learning how to be a reporter and attempting to survive a singles ward. Wish me luck!
