Yum of the Day/Tasty Tuesday

 I found this recipe on Lauren Conrad's website. I tried it tonight & it's really good. I think I might add a little more honey & cinnamon though. I used Vanilla Rice Milk instead. Here is the recipe.

1 cup almond milk
1 tsp honey
2 drops vanilla extract
A pinch of cinnamon

Pour the milk into a microwave safe mug and cook it in the microwave until the milk begins to foam. Stir in the honey and vanilla, then sprinkle with cinnamon. Enjoy warm. This is also a great solution to try if you often have trouble sleeping.

Ice skating

Today was Tara's last ice skating lesson. Her 2nd session. She had her test today & got her 2nd patch. My Dad was a hockey referee when I was a kid. So I was always at the rink & also took lessons when I was a kid. I hadn't skated in 14 years. I went & my Dad too since it was Tara's last lesson. I didn't do too bad, my ankles were really hurting though. It was so cold too. My nose was totally pink & it took me 2 hrs to warm up after. It was a fun day.

Nail Files week # 119 & Spring Polish swap reveal

My Partner was Sarah from Small Town Iowan. I had mentioned that I loved purple. It was a Spring polish swap. Stop by her blog. She has 2 adorable girls.
When I opened my package, it was all wrapped up pretty.
She sent me Wet n' Wild Megalast~On a Trip. I love the color, but I already had it. So Tara added it to her stash.

Spring cleaning

I've been doing some Spring cleaning lately. Posting stuff on Craigslist. I threw out a bunch of magazines & catalogs (lots more to go). I brought some old tap shoes to Tara's dance school today & donated them. Cleaned out my closet. Destashing my scrapbooking stuff too. It feels good to get rid of stuff. I'm sick of clutter. I think it does kind of weigh you down. 1 of my pen pals sent me a big package of clothes & jewelry last week. She does this a few times a year when she cleans out her closet. So I want to do that & pass my stuff on to other people.

"Twenties Girl" by Sophie Kinsella

I finished reading the book "Twenties Girl" by Sophie Kinsella today. I totally loved it. It's about an English girl named Lara, who goes to her Great Aunt's funeral. She's never met her & none of her family really wants to be there. During the funeral the Aunt's ghost starts talking to Lara & tells her that she wants her necklace & to stop the funeral & say that she's been murdered. So they stop the funeral & they have some funny adventures together, trying to find the missing necklace. It's a heartwarming story. Her Aunt died at 105, but the ghost is 23. Young at heart.
