Coffee Date Dress

I just discovered Burda Style, an online sewing community of sorts. I found this dress and would LOVE to sew it. I am all about ruffles, so this is perfect. It's called the "Coffee Date Dress" - how sweet is that?

I have no business in the kitchen

I think I got a little ahead of myself yesterday. I thought that I had some baking skills, even though I was never allowed in the kitchen.
Today, I was baking up the last of the cookies and burned my forearm. It looks worse in person, but I'll spare you the close-up. Maybe it doesn't mean I can't bake, maybe it means I am just clumsy.

JJ Cool J's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Jon (also known as Jontini, or JJ Cool J) sent me a recipe for his special cookies. They include three different types of chocolate PLUS toffee! Toffee!
I can't count the number of times I was kicked out of the kitchen by my mother, by such phrases such as "Go soak your head," "Go fly a kite" or "Go lay down," but these cookies turned out perfectly nevertheless!
Thanks, JJ!

Graduation & The Big Visit

I have been having an amazing August and there are still a few more days left in the month! I have so many things to celebrate: graduation, my wonderful family's visit, my birthday, two years of living in this amazing city, a queen-sized bed, and a brand new job title! I feel so blessed in every way.
Here are a few highlights! I took some Polaroids and I'm in the process of getting them scanned, so stay tuned.
