Wish List Wednesday: A day at the Ballpark

I guess watching The Sandlot has left me wanting more baseball in my life because all of the things on my list today would be perfect for a day at the ballpark. 

I love this Baseball T by Judith March. As far as I can tell it's totally sold out :( 

I would put it with these shorts that I have from The Gap. I love them! You can find them here.


 I think it would look so cute with these shoes which can be found here.

Indoor S'mores Tasty Tuesday

I watched the movie The Sandlot the other day. One of my favorite scenes is the s'more scene. 




It seems like every time I make a s'more, someone quotes this movie. This scene inspired this weeks Tasty Tuesday. It has been too cold to be outside much lately, so we made Indoor S'mores. 



Ingredients: 
3/4 cup light corn syrup 
3 tbs. margarine or butter
1 package milk chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
9 cups Golden Grahams cereal 
3 cups miniature marshmallows

1. Grease a 9" X 13" X 2" pan
2. Heat the corn syrup, butter and chocolate until boiling, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla.
3. Pour over cereal and 3 cups of marshmallows in a large bowl. Toss until coated. Press in pan with the back of a spoon or spatula (I would spray with nonstick spray) 
4. Sprinkle marshmallows on the top and occasionally press some into the mixture. 
5. Let stand for 1 hour
6. cut into squares and enjoy. 
* Store loosely covered at room temp. We suggest covering them with wax paper. They are good for about two days after, so eat em quick. We never have a problem with that however. :)

Best Sunless Tanner Ever!

Hey lovelies! We are so excited to be back after a short break. :) I absolutely love this time of year as the weather starts to warm up a little bit.  I'm also super pasty white from the long winter months. I refuse to use tanning beds so I'm also on the look out for good self tanners.  I've hit the jack pot with this one!

I will admit I was very hesitant to purchase this one because I've tried so many kinds and haven't found one I've loved but figured I couldn't go wrong with the price.  



When I first used this it made me super nervous because the mousse was really dark. I found that it is super easy to apply and blends really well. I recommend using a tanning mitt to apply the mousse but it isn't totally necessary if you don't have one. Overall I am beyond pleased with this product and will definitely be replacing my old sunless tanners with this.

Because the it was such a good deal I also picked this up as well. It's perfect to use on the in between days for extra shimmer.


Pros:

-Very easy to apply. You don't have to rub it in as much as you do a lotion because it dries very quickly.
-Reasonably priced plus if you have a local Sally's you don't have to pay for shipping
-Gives a natural bronzed look
-Doesn't streak

Cons:
- It doesn't seem to last quite as long as other self tanners but this doesn't bother me as much because of how easy it is to apply again.

Wishlist Wednesday-Jewelry Must Haves

I love jewelry. I love to find cute, interesting pieces that I can wear with anything. 



After pinning initial after initial necklaces for months, I finally bought one here. I wear it everyday and I get so many compliments on it!

I got an Alex and Ani bracelet for Christmas and I completely fell in love with them. They are so much fun to mix and match. I love how each bracelet means something to me. I love wearing them with my gold watch too! You can find them here.



I also love rings. I think these midi rings are super fun and inexpensive. You can find them here

The "Lauren Conrad" Smoothie

I recently purchased a new Ninja blender so I've been pinning a ton of healthy smoothie recipes to try. Of course the "Lauren Conrad" smoothie was the first one I had to try because I'm obsessed with her. The thing that caught my eye with this particular recipe is the fact that it has oatmeal in it. I'll admit I've never thought twice about putting oatmeal in my smoothie.

The "Lauren Conrad" Smoothie

Ingredients:
  • 1 c. ice
  • 1 banana 
  • 1/2 c. frozen raspberries or strawberries (I used 1 c. strawberries)
  • 1/2 c. plain low-fat yogurt 
  • 1/2 c. old fashioned rolled oats (I changed this to 1/4 c. oats)
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1 c. coconut water or juice (I used 1% milk)



I was actually pleasantly surprised with this smoothie. I love that it is really healthy and you don't have to add a bunch of sugar to it or a fruit juice like a lot of other smoothies.  It looks like this will be one of my go to breakfast meals!

Spring Loves!

The weather has been uncharacteristically warm in Utah for the past two weeks, making me long for spring! I don't know how long the weather will last, but I'll enjoy it while it's here. This Wish List was inspired by spring!

I saw this look here.


I have been looking for a new watch, and I fell in love with this one. You can find it here. How perfect would this watch be with that outfit! 



Salt water Sandals are something that I wore as a kid. I discovered they have them in women's sizes here.





But most of all spring makes me wish for these...

Pinterest Project.


I love pinterest! When I saw this deer, I knew I must have one for myself. The person who pinned it thought it would be great for the holidays, however I think it's great for any time of the year. 

To start I bought a 9X12 canvas, modge podge, and of course gold glitter. 

I searched online for a deer stencil that I liked, and I found one here



I lightly traced that stencil on the canvas with a pencil. 

Then I took a foam brush and painted a section at a time and poured glitter on it. After letting it sit for a minute I gently tapped the excess glitter off and fixed any holes


The in-progress deer.

Once I finished the glitter, I sprayed the canvas with a clear varnish to keep the glitter from falling off the canvas. 


Finished Product.
