I reallyyyy wanted to wear my green flats with this, but it's raining today. Womp womp.

But good news! Only TWO outfits left, AND tomorrow is Friday! Hooray!

This weekend is going to be a little ridiculous. My brother and his best friend are probably visiting Friday, then Saturday is the St. Patrick's Day Parade downtown, and then Sunday my boo/favorite cuddle buddy is coming to visit!

I absolutely love when people come to visit me. There is something about playing hostess that I find really appealing: cleaning/organizing before they arrive, cooking dinner, introducing old friends to new ones... I love all of it. Housewife-in-training, anyone?

Speaking of domesticity, I made a really yummy (and so simple) dinner last night - spanish-style rice and beans!
Ingredients: olive oil, garlic, red onion, tomato paste, chicken (or vegetable) stock, cumin, rice, black beans, salt and pepper. avocado and shredded cheese to garnish!
Directions (yields about 4 servings): saute 1 Tbsp minced garlic and 1/4 cup chopped onion. set aside. saute 1 cup of rice in olive oil until lightly browned. add to rice the sauteed garlic/onion, 1 cup water, 1 cup stock, 6 oz of tomato paste, 1 tsp of cumin, 1 tsp salt and a dash of pepper. stir and simmer for 30 hour. stir in black beans and serve!

I used the leftovers today to make a BALLER burrito. I just added scrambled eggs, sour cream, and salsa, then wrapped it up!
