waffley good

i feel like a lame-o loser. recently, i've only been blogging my sunday outfits and making almost zero attempt to take pictures of my everyday outfits. barf. which means i haven't been trying very hard at making my everyday outfits very creative. so. i vow to try a little harder. but not much.
sunday i wore one of my favorite dresses of all time. i've had it for 10 years. i wore this dress in my engagement photos with my husband, and we've been married for 8 years so this dress has seen a lot of daylight. love my husband, love my dress. a great combo. and, i am so stoked about wearing cardis so i threw one on sunday. it's better than the things i usually throw.
plus, i forgot to put the roast in the oven before church so i was stuck making a mammoth amounts of waffles and pancakes for dinner. good thing for my fam, those both happen to be my speciality. and lucky for you i'll share my recipes with you. they are worth it.
best waffles ever amen-
1 3/4 cups flour
1 T baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 egg yolks
1 3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup oil
2 egg whites
in stand mixer beat egg white until stiff. in separate bowl mix flour, baking powder and salt. beat in milk and oil. stir wet and dry ingredients until just mixed but still lumpy. add egg whites but leave a few fluffs of egg white. do not overmix. pour onto buttered waffle iron. when done lift off with fork.
pancakes hallelujah-
1 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 salt
1 egg
1 cup milk
2 T melted butter
combine dry ingredients in bowl and mix well. in another bowl beat egg with milk. whisk egg mixture with dry ingredients and then mix in butter. if too thin add additional flour until desired texture is achieved. pour onto well greased pan. enjoy.
***not a staged picture***

ps- i dyed my hair black. super black. not just really dark brown. blackety black. it's a dream come true, except that i can't paint my nails black for a really long time. i don't want to be confused with a goth kid who drowns puppies.

Love the cardi over the dress...what a perfectly layer look! Good for you being loud and proud about a dress you have had FOREVER and still love! Hey, somethings just don't ever go out of fashion (my favorite pair of black dress pants dates back at least 7 years :))

black hair plus your green eyes = you ARE scarlett o'hara! hahaha. i love the color. i always want to go dark, but then the one time i did, i had some stupid person from my childhood tell me that i didn't look good as a brunette because the hansen girls are just supposed to be blonde. hahahaha. i love all your heidiluxe posts.

do you want to be my personal stylist? what would look good on ME? where should i go to find clothes? i'm having a super rough time finding things because i STILL can't lose this baby weight even though it's a YEAR later. it's very frustrating.
