what's working for me

this is what's working for me lately. 

1.
i've lived in this pencil skirt and another jcrew no. 2 pencil skirt this summer. they fit my birthing hips. i love them both. i'll tell you what though, i am tempting fate by wearing this skirt and holding the baby. she seems to sense when i am wearing it and likes to drop a bomb on it. i had to dry clean it twice last week. 
now i'm off to conquer the world to find jeans that fit my birthing hips. denim is intimidating. 

2.
delectably moist(sorry jamey) cupcakes. prepare a regular cake mix following box instructions. add 1 cup sour cream and one instant pudding mix. bake as directed. even your friends that don't like cake(i'm looking at you paula "i just want fruit salad" roberts) will think they are a taste of heaven.  they don't really even need frosting. but let's not get crazy. 

3.
the best tortillas ever. a friend of mine tipped me off to these. i'll never go back to boring ol' tortillas. i find mine at costco in the same case as the fresh pastas. the kicker about these are that you cook them yourself. plop them on a hot skillet for about 30 seconds and flip. they taste like the tortillas you get at cafe rio.  ole!


4.
montreal seasoned hamburgers on a slider size bun
the bomb dot com. montreal seasoning is the 2nd best thing to come out of canada. first place being a 3 way tie between caillou, my SIL sarah and instant potato flakes. my local publix sells montreal patties pre-seasoned and i just throw them on the george foreman. they are perfection. but, if i am forced to make them myself, i take the patty, lightly brush it with olive oil and then generously rub it with montreal seasoning. i like the slider size bun because it's just enough bun, not too much. it makes it looks like a hamburger on a commercial, meat just spilling out of the bun.  

5. 
lash accelerator and maybelline falsies flare mascara. it's my winning combination. my kids and husband all have amazing lashes and then i am the odd woman out with lashes that stick straight out and are thin as kate moss's forearms. if i layer these two mascaras then i almost look like i belong in my family.

I now eat corn tortilas a lot. I used to think they were gross, but now I love them. Excited to try these though. And thanks for the mascara tip. I might need to do that for all four of my eyelashes.
