Seattle Photos...Eventually!

I uploaded my photos to this blog post when we returned from our Alaskan cruise, then saved it as a draft, planning to come back later that week to add captions.

If you love boxed macaroni and cheese, but agree that it takes too much effort to make (yes, I am unbelievably lazy) and that it costs too much money, (cheap frugal too!) this is the Ramen noodle recipe of your dreams.

I'll post the new pictures in 2016.

Ew, Pica. Eeeewwwwwww! Looking guilty. (Rightfully so!)

The Thrift Store Is Ruining My Life

This dress was only $4! I love its fun, vintage vibe.

Isn't the pattern cute?

It also turns out, despite having two layers of fabric, that this cute dress is quite see-through. Surprise! I just had to wear the polka dot underwear to work, didn't I?
