Loved It: Bundled Up

Last weekend husband and I joined my parents in Sisters Oregon to visit family.  It's such an adorable little town.  It's so adorable it inspired a visitor's guide post.  (coming up!)  In the meantime I hope you like the outfit I threw together to walk around.  
 Sorry for the poor quality on this pic.  See my camera sitting next to me?  This one was taken with a phone.

Loved It: Sweet and Tangy Bourbon Meatballs

This recipe is by no means original.  It is not healthy.  It is not quick.  But man, on man, is it delicious!  A friend made these for a clothes-swap party she threw and I swear I hovered over them like a... well a... hungry girl wanting more meatballs.  I ate and ate and then I got home and thought about them some more.  Until finally I searched Pinterest (that's where she got the recipe) and made them for myself.  It's super easy- just takes a while to heat up.  You could serve these alone as an appetizer (like she did) or as the main course (like I did).  I made goat-cheese mashed potatoes and a green salad as an accompaniment.  These are good.   Really, really, really good!
1 bag of Frozen Meatballs. (I used the Trader Joes Turkey Meatballs)
1/2 heaping cup ketchup
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup whiskey
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

Whisk all the ingredients together until well blended. (if you like your meatballs a little more tangy and a little less sweet I would cut the sugar to 1/3 c. and double the lemon juice and Worcestershire.  Put the frozen meatballs in a crockpot, pour sauce over meatballs and turn on high.  Stir occationally.  After 1 hour turn down to low and let sit another hour.  Enjoy!

Loved It: Polka dots and Shoulder Pads

A few days ago a friend threw a clothes swap party.  It was a lot of fun and I scored some pretty great pieces.  My favorite was this polka dot number.  I couldn't quite tell if it was a throwback to  Dorothy Zvornak from Golden Girls or if it was actually modernly-vintage (is that a thing?) like I was inclined to believe.  Well, I took it home and I wore it out and I even took a few pictures in it.  I guess it's not exactly in vogue but at the very least I'm channeling Blanch Devereaux, and that's chic enough for me. 


Loved It: Glam Plaid

I may or may not have bought my tartan jacket a few years ago when I was really into Gwen Stefani's LAMB line.  Of course, I can't afford a LAMB jacket so I went to my fave knock-off store of all time- Forever 21.
