I know what you’re thinking. Why the heck does she have a picture of food on her style blog?! Well, I have earned bragging rights my friend. This is what my hubby had waiting on me when I got home this evening. Chicken Cacciatore–YUM! At the bottom of this (long) post, I will give you the recipe and you MUST try it. If you know Ty and I very well then you know we both like to cook and are pretty good at it when we just put forth the effort! :)
On a more serious note, as you know if you read yesterday’s post, my dad had his back surgery today and it was a success!! Thank you to those of you who kept him in your prayers.
Now on to style…Belts are still a great way to add the perfect touch to your outfits. If you want to accentuate your waist line, add some texture to a simple dress, or just add some fun to an outfit, belts are the way to go!
Now on to some creations out of my closet… Oh, if only I could record Ty and I while doing our little photo shoot. He’s quite the photographer.
Wasn’t this fun!!?? Remember, I’d be happy to come over and help you create new looks out of what you already own in your closet.
