38 to 80

38 to 80

Heading off to Colorado this week.  Temps range from 38 to 80 and it makes packing interesting. 
Here are a few items I'm planning on taking.

Hi and low

Hi and low
I like wearing a high neckline with a low boot.  Cowboy boots are perfect in warmer weather.   Go on, try on a pair and see if you end up with a few pairs in your closet.

food, fashion and fun

Food - the hubs and I overate at The Melting Pot last night.  It was too much food and I felt bad wasting it.  I did make sure to eat all of the dessert course.

Fashion -  I popped into my local Target and picked up the Vera sea flower oblong scarf.  It goes with so many things I already have in my closet.  In fact, I'm wearing it today.
Fun - I just ordered cases from Cali's Cases for my new iphone.  Hubs took me to get the new phone before dinner last night.  Can't wait to facetime with the nieces!

Now to figure out how to post photo's to my blog with the new phone...

Derby Day

Derby Day
Last year we were in Florida getting ready to go on a cruise, this year we are home watching the Derby on TV while my BIL and his family post pics from Churchill Downs.  Next year I'm either going to be there or throw an awesome Derby party.  It is never too early to shop for the perfect hat!

Lemon olive oil cake

I had several eggs and a few lemons that needed to be used.   I remembered seeing a recipe in Self that looked good, so I grabbed my laptop and googled  lemon olive oil cake.  This cake takes time to make, but is so worth it.  I would up the lemon juice to 2 T and reduce the bake time (30 mins).  The hubs liked it, but suggested lemon glaze to punch up the lemon factor.  I must admit that he is right.  I will whip some  up before I have my next piece.
