Sounds Like Hallelujah

 I would like to take a moment and brag about the amazing dinner I managed to fanangle last night. Bare in mind that this is coming from the girl that manages to turn mac-n-cheese into the consistency of soup.

I made juicy, peppered chicken that would make my mother fall to her knees while simultaneously wiping away tears of pride with her apron, and rice that didn't stick to the bottom of the pot and trigger my smoke alarm into a frenzy.

There was no glasses of water to quickly chase a rubbery taste down, no panicked pillow-flapping motions in front of the fire alarm, and no dark thoughts on how I don't deserve these ovaries of mine.

This baby bird is growing :)

skirt- f21
shirt- h&m
belt- h&m (boys section)

  7. I wish I could say the same about my dinner last night. Everything that didn't happen to you, happened to me, burnt rice and all! hahaa.. I'll learn one day.

    This is a really cute outfit. I like the skirt and booties together!

  12. You are too funny! Your cooking escapades sound like mine!

    LOVE your entire look, as usually. But, I am especially drawn to the little booties, probably because we're transitioning into fall, and I LOVE booties!

  29. I love this look, that blouse is gorgeous and skirts with buttons up the front are my favorite.
    That meal sounds tasty! I am not a terrible cook but I prefer not to cook. It tastes better when someone else makes it for me!

  42. When was this skirt at F21 and why did no one tell me? The color and shape are perfect. You must be so tired of me telling you how much I love everything and how it's all perfectly put-together, but I don't even care. And congrats on a successful dinner! I wish I had that skill...

  51. I love the skirt and boots: they look like the kind of items which can be worn over and over again in a myriad of different ways! Well done on the meal :) Can you tell me your secret for the rice please?! I swear, me and my boyfriend love rice and while my fried rice usually works out, we cannot get boiled rice to work! It's always sticky!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love you outfit! You top and skirt look amazing together.
    Congratulations on making a great dinner! I cannot cook either and I have messed up making mac-n-cheese also. :) Except I accidentally put it in the microwave too long and I melted the bowl it was in. :)
    I love your blog! I'm a new follower.
