Somewhat of a basic outfit today.
Inspired by Carrie Fabulous (no. 56 combo):
Notice my yellow & tangerine nail polish? I did this last night. Again not the cleanest lines on the tips but oh well. Of course my husband's first comments upon seeing this is 'looks like Halloween candy!'
I love this cocoa shrug. So soft and the color goes with everything...
These sandals are getting very old!

With my little girl. I am getting a bit better in front braiding her hair.
Cooked during naps then swim class in the afternoon.
My friend came over for some styling advice and accessory/shoe borrowing.
Chicken Lollipops & Couscous and Garbanzo bean tabbouleh
Recipe from the Parenting Magazine's July 2011 issue...
I doubled the tomatoes in the salad and also added 6 stalks of celery hearts too for more veggies...
I had cooked chick peas already last week so had a container of that ready. My kids love all kinds of beans which is great.
Bought the new pearled couscous which is much bigger for a change. I usually get couscous in bulk from Henry's but I was out so used a box of near east instead...
Cut up chicken breast into large squares (size of lollipops) and marinated for couple hours then baked in the oven as instructed...
This is the salad after everything is mixed. Me and the kids ate it cold but my husband warmed it up.
Put in the skewers after I heated up the chicken pieces. My skewers were long so I just cut them shorter.
The Kids' Plates:
And our plates. The white dollop is ranch dressing for the chicken.... The chicken came out very tasty and moist. I love the citrusy taste the lemon gave.
