carbonara night

 So, after being abandoned for the evening, Natalie, Caitlin and I decided to make carbonara! It's one of my absolute favorite pastas, but my mom refuses to make it for me since it's so unhealthy (sigh. the problems with living in a healthy household). But after some researching, Natalie found that traditionally carbonara isn't actually made with cream, just eggs! So we decided to experiment, and it turned out pretty well! A little too much pepper. And, to be honest, I think the artery-clogging cream version is better :)

 And Natalie's lovely spinach salad. Seriously this girl goes through so many fruits and vegetables in a day it's insane. We've had put her on a no-carrot diet for the time being, as she was starting to turn orange - not even kidding...

 I've been told that if I don't put Sophie into the blog, she'll cry... more like run around in circles and throw her mushy bone at the wall (she's not the brightest dog in the world ^^). But we love her :)

One down-side of this blazer I have discovered is that it has a tendency to seem very nautical - as in, I can't wear it with stripes (which I own and wear quite often) without looking like an off-duty sailor. Oh well, I still like it, especially now that I took the linebacker-esque shoulder pads out.

We went shopping today! Caitlin had an eye-doctor appointment, so while she was being examined Natalie and I did a little shopping in Old Navy. She was shopping for choir tour (in other words, everything below the knee) something I am going to miss so much! They're going to Australia in a few weeks, I'm beyond jealous. Back on subject. Ok. I got an adorable new swimsuit, as well as some black denim shorts and a little patterned skirt. Photos coming soon, assuming it ever warms up in this weird state. 

I'm posting twice today! This is kind of odd... But I've decided that if I can't have a job, the least I can do this summer is exercise and blog well - guess which one I'm not so good at? (please don't say blogging that will make me sad ^^)
