Let's talk about tattoos.
How do you feel about tattoos?  Do you have one?  Do you want one?

I kind-of love them.  No, I do not love all of them, but most of them... yes.  They're definitely a conversation opener (the visible ones).  
Here's my thing.  I would really like one and I know what it would be and I haven't changed what it is for years, but would I want it forever?  That is exactly what holds me back.  Sometimes I just draw it out for fun.

What is it, you ask?
I would definitely get the yoga tree pose in stick figure form.  This all comes from a yoga class I took in a park in 08 when the instructor described the pose as this:
*your toes are the trees roots.  These are the people in your life who root you and aren't going anywhere, like your family, they are your foundation.
*your fingers are the leaves on your tree.  They represent people that come into your life for awhile and then they may drift off, but they were still part of the tree while they were there.
*The wind comes and tries to push you over.  You adjust and allow yourself to move a bit and then get back to your center.  Life isn't always smooth.

yep, that's what I would get.

In the meantime, I'm in love with tattly!  The temporary tattoos are a little expensive, but how fun for a special occasion!  I actually started looking for a friend's bachelorette party coming up and ended up checking out the entire site.

how cute for a kid's bday party! (via)

Veggie Tinga

I made Vegetarian Tinga for a mexican pot luck I went to on Tuesday.

Many people have never heard of Tinga, let alone knowing you can make it vegetarian style.  You absolutely can!  And it's so easy.

Traditional tinga is made of shredded chicken with chipotle flavoring.  I used cabbage instead of the chicken.

I looked at a lot of different recipes online, but couldn't find a recipe for the veggie tinga I had in mind, so I ended up combining the guidelines of those recipes and making my own.

Here's what I did:

1 onion
1 head of cabbage
1 7oz. can chipotle (the peppers in adobo sauce)
5 ish roma tomatoes
olive oil

-Saute onion in olive oil.
-Chop cabbage (I used youtube to help me figure out the best way to do that) add to onion and saute.
-Blend the chipotle and tomatoes in blender.
Note:  Some people only like to add the sauce from the chipotle peppers.  I added the entire can (including the peppers themselves).  It's up to you depending on how spicy you want it.  (I like my food s…


*Karen tells me that is not what I'm supposed to say, but it makes sense in my head...

Saturday I was in San Antonio for work, I did get to hang out with a friend while I was in town so that definitely made the trip better, combined with the fact that the volunteers there are just wonderful.

I knew Sunday was going to be overwhelming before I left on Friday.  I always write lists when I'm overwhelmed, I wrote a list.  (Even though I hardly referenced it on Sunday.)  Just writing it down helps me feel better.

Sunday we registered for at two places, starting at 9am.  When we finished the second one (which we were both dragging ourselves through) it felt like it was time for was 2pm.  Guys, this experience brought so much clarity to people's registerys.  I would not necessarily say it was a fun experience.  And I am very happy Mike seems to have a vision because we would limit the insane number of options down to a couple options together and then I would say I don'…


I said when I turned 30 in January I was going to start using moisturizer.  Now, 6 months later, I can say I've kind of achieved the goal, but not really...

I have a moisturizer from several years ago, which I received as a Christmas gift.  I used it off and on over the years, mostly off.  I've probably used it more this year than ever before, granted the bar was very low.

I don't like it though.  I don't like the smell or really how it feels either.

Then I heard True Botanicals released a lower-priced Basics collection designed for younger skin, technically for people in their 20s, but whatever.  I decided to try their hydrating oil (the smallest one) to see if I am able to be consistent with use.

First impression: I'm still figuring out how much to use, but I love the smell.
