My Favorite Lunch

I used to just eat a turkey sandwich for lunch everyday.
Then I decided I didn't want to eat bread everyday so I made a quesadilla with lunchmeat and cheese.
Then I remembered the recipe for Mexican Caviar that my friend Diane gave me.
So for awhile I was just having that with chips.
Then I remembered I liked avocado, so I started buying that more often.
So for awhile I was eating chips and guacamole (my simplified version of mashing an avocado and adding a couple spoonfuls of salsa).
Then I decided to add my guacamole to my turkey quesadilla and I had the Avacado Quesadilla.  My sisters made fun of me, but then one of them made it and really liked it.
AND THEN I got really smart and added my Mexican caviar to my turkey quesadilla.

Here is my recipe.  I am sure you have one you like, but this is the version I really love!
Mexican Caviar Recipe
1 can black beans
1 can fiesta corn
A bunch of tomatoes, cut up
Cut up avocado

1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
salt and pepper
Red pepper flakes

Mix dressing together.  Pour and stir.
Add the avocado before eating

I make this at the beginning of the week and it lasts me most of the week.
I add however much avocado I think I would like for that meal.  That way it won't get brown for the next time.
You can freeze avocados and they hold up great.  Just cut them in half and then thaw before you want to use them.  That way they won't go bad before you can eat them.

Pin-spired Outfit

I'm not great at putting outfits together, but I have learned a lot since I started pinterest.

This is what I have learned:

1.  You don't really need to match
2.  A scarf makes any outfit look good
3.  A cardi also makes any outfit look good

I have fully embraced #2 and #3.  I have tried #1 a few times when I wore my stripe shirt with my leopard scarf.

I have 148 pins on my Outfit Inspiration board.  I have tried less than 10 of them.

I recently pinned this outfit and felt that I could create this outfit pretty easily.
It turned out to be much easier than I thought.  I got the pants and shirt at Meijer's (I never ever look at clothes there, but why not?  They are pretty cheap.)  I got the shoes at Younkers, and my accessories at Charlotte Russe.

This is what I came up with

 The back of the shirt is all lace-like so I wear a tank the same color as the shirt. 

I have a pair of pink pants that I will post about soon.

Silly Girl

Ariel is our silly girl.
She filled her jammies and this is what we found inside.

One day she covered her legs in stickers

She played outside and carried a towel around to dry her hands after she touched the snow.
