Guacamole Recipe

I like Guacamole a certain way. I don’t like mayo or anything like that in it because I really like the avocado flavor. If you are like me, you may like this Guac recipe I made. It’s so easy and its so yummy!

Here’s What You Need:

3 Ripe Avocados
Salt
Onion Powder
Garlic Powder
Fresh Cilantro
Ground Cumin

Cut the Avocados in half and de-pit them. Use a spoon to scrape out the inside.

Use a fork to mash your avocados up. I like mine a little chunky so I don’t mash it TOO much.

Chop your cilantro into little pieces. I LOVE cilantro and I can eat it plain, but I know a lot of people don’t like it. I use about 1/2 – 3/4 cup of chopped cilantro.

Add
1/4 TSP Ground Cumin
1/4 TSP Garlic Powder
1/4 TSP Onion Powder
1/2 Cup Chopped Cilantro
1/2 TSP Salt

Birthday Gifts!


Many of you know that I have a LOVE for handbags. This year I really REALLY wanted a nice bag that would be a good size for dinners and receptions. I decided I wanted a Jumbo Chanel Flap in lambskin, but I never really thought that Tom would want to buy one. He doesn’t really understand the allure of designer handbags. So I searched and searched for another birthday gift that would make ‘sense’ to ask for, but I still really wanted this handbag.

Well Tom likes to give me more reasons to LOVE  HIM! We decided to buy a used one on ebay. I had it authenticated and I think we got a pretty good deal. I CANNOT justify buying any Chanel classic handbags new anymore. Chanel has gotten a little ‘trigger happy’ with these price increases and it really puts a sour taste in my mouth. I had such a great experience buying this bag on ebay; I will probably purchase most of my future handbags from trustworthy ebay sellers from now on (except my future Hermes Birkin).

It has a few scratch marks and indents from the chain, but it’s lovely.

And on top of this already huge gift, he bought me a pair of earrings that I have been wanting for a while. They go beautifully with my purse too! They can be dressed up or dressed down and they sparkle 🙂

Wellllllllll I have finally reached the age that I am going to be for the next 10 years lol. I was born 25 years ago today. WOW! I can’t believe how old I have gotten. I feel a sense of panic as I think about how quickly life has been going since turning 21. It took FOREVER to get to 21, but now I blink and another year goes by. As a kid you get way more gifts on your birthday, but I am pretty happy with the turnout this year. One of the first few things that I let Tom know about me was that my birthday was a huge deal. Not the whole getting older thing, but the celebration that I graced the earth on this day lol. I love it.

He does a good job on my birthdays though. This year I got spoiled again :). I will post pictures of all my birthday gifts for you all to see. Last year I wasn’t supposed to get a birthday gift because I wanted to lump my Christmas, Birthday, and Push Present together in order to get a BIG present. But Tom still got me a nice pair of earrings and a TV for our bedroom.

EEEEKK! This year I got two FANTASTIC gifts from Tom. I can’t wait to show you guys. My parents are flying in tonight so I should probably be cleaning the house but I thought I had to post something for you all today. Ugh 25 is so hard to think about. I’m sure on the 30th birthday 25 will seem like forever ago and I will probably look back and feel silly for feeling ‘old’ at 25.

I cooked us a yummy meal of breaded pork chops, green beans, and stuffing. It wasn’t planned but that was all I had to work with and it was fantastic.

No Cemera

Ugh guys my Canon camera is getting replaced. I LOVE this camera guys, but I have been having a little issue with it and the company has been so responsive. They are just going to send me a new one. I can’t wait to get it so I can vlog and take pictures for everyone. Right now I am back to using my Sony video camera; also a great camera.

We also picked a WINNER for our Moby Wrap Give Away! So that was super fun. Now I need to ship it. Today I ALSO GOT MY BIRTHDAY GIFT from my hubby. Tom is so great. He knows I don’t like getting older each year 🙁 so he always gets me wonderful presents. I love him so much. I can’t wait to show it to him when he gets home. I will show you guys everything I got for my birthday! I turn 25 on 8-22. WOW 25.
