*Friday Fabulousness* Fall Fashion

Fall is in the air in Los Angeles
{we're flipping between 70 and 80 degrees instead of a constant 80 to 90}

And I'm ready to pull out my boots
Throw on my sweaters
And cuddle up in my scarves

So today, I'm celebrating all of the fall fashions
That I already have in my closet for our mild So Cal fall

Or am hoping to {cheaply} acquire
And wear to death this season

And I'm already counting down the days
Until my beloved holidays!

*Wordless* Booger

This week's not really Wordless Wednesday
{I don't even know why I call it this anymore...every one of my posts has words}
Is dedicated to my boo boo, Boogerdog

Who loves her new *big girl bed*

And always is happy to give her mama a big sloppy kiss
{even when mama is lookin kinda gross in sweats with her glasses on}

Who is BFFs with my BFFs pup

And always looks for Daddy when we drop him off to pick up coffee

Who is *learning* how to balance things on her head
{sort of, kind of, not really}

And who met her doppleganger at Starbucks

Who's too lazy to walk all the way home after a long day

And who loves getting thrown over my shoulder like a sack of potatoes

She may not be a human baby,
But she is my baby

PS I realized after posting this that Booger is 11 months old today!  I can't believe she's not going to be a *puppy* anymore next month (although I'm sure she'll still act like one for years...)! Pin It

Healthy Zucchini Pizza Sticks *Recipe*

As I march nearer and nearer to K's wedding (and bachelorette! ahh!)
I'm seriously feeling the pressure to keep it healthy
So that I fit into my dress

And thus, I've been leaning heavily on the fabulous recipes
Of my fabulous low carb Kalyn of Kalyn's Kitchen
Like this one for zucchini pizza
Which inspired this healthy meal
That satisfies without fat-i-fying (I made that one up right there...)!

Healthy Zucchini Pizza Sticks

4 zucchinis
Olive oil
Salt & pepper
1/2 cup tomato sauce
(more if you like saucy pizza)
1-2 cups low fat mozzerella cheese
Pizza toppings 
(go crazy!  we used low fat pepperoni, basil and onions, but you can use whatever!)

Have your hubby turn the grill on to medium-high
(or do it yourself I guess...I still don't really know how to use the thing)

Slice your zucchini in half 
Brush with olive oil
And dust with salt and pepper

Throw it on the grill for 8 - 10 minutes
Skin side up

Then pull it off
And spread on sauce
Add some cheese
Toss on toppings
And sprinkle some extra cheese for good luck

Try not to spill anything
...ok that's totally not humanly possible...

Put your zucchinis back on the grill for another 8 - 10 minutes on high 

And then pull them off 
And enjoy the melty, delicious, pizza-y
Healthy goodness

*New!* Style

Do you ever go shopping and buy new and fabulous things
And then decide you want to wear all of it

All at once

Scarf: Forever 21, Tunic: H&M, Leggings: American Apparel, Boots: Nordstrom

Even if it might not really go together

Yeah, so I did that.

And I think it turned out pretty well

What do you think?
Relaxed and chic?
Or a little too hobo?

Linking up to RMRS, ADU and WIWW!

PS The photos are definitely not rocking today but I'm so busy that I don't have time to retouch!  Lo siento! Pin It
