Please excuse my lack of creativity for blog titles :p
I’ve mentioned before my Grandma’s distaste of dark/harsh colors so when her birthday rolled around, I racked my brain for outfit ideas. I decided on mustard, caramel and dark brown for the family get together and birthday celebration. I love this Forever21 skirt because it’s fun and functional with deep pockets to stash my camera and cell phone and also full and twirly to keep me comfortable while stuffing my face with all the yummy foods my relatives would be bringing. I also took full advantage of the 80 degree Southern California weather by skipping the tights and showing off some legs but the sweater coat would keep me cozy in case it got cold later on that evening.
I love comfort food and Banana Nut Bread is definitely one of them. When I saw this No Fuss Banana Nut Bread recipe on one of my favorite food blogs, dailyfoodgasm, I knew I had to try to make it. I’d been meaning to try this recipe since Vy first shared it on her blog but unfortunately for me, my husband loves having a banana for breakfast every morning and they’d disappear before I had a chance to make it. Feeling determined and planning to attend my Grandma’s birthday dinner last Saturday, I made a run to the grocery store for bananas. Two bundles to keep both my baking urge and my husband satisfied. The recipe was fuss free overall; except for sifting the flour – I can’t seem to ever do this without making a mess! In the end, it was well worth the mini flour mess I made because it was a huge hit! My Grandma loved it and everyone kept telling me I should make this again. This recipe is definitely a winner & a keeper in my book!
wow, you look simply gorgeous in this outfit! i love the mustard color paired with the pretty print of the F21 skirt. and those shoes are perfect!
