For some reason I was set on wearing this belt to "pop" my outfit, but it's too big to fit at the high waist. So I thought what the heck, and essentially twisty-tied it. I felt pretty alright about this look but did get some odd glances during lunch. Not sure if folks were thinking I needed a belt-buckling 101 class or I had a piece of lettuce on my cheek - either way, people were nice and talked to me reeeaaalllll slow-like.
Dress: H&M (thanks, sis)

On to other things - last night we made the effort to make a "real meal" and christened our new grill (it's a cheapie from Char-Broil, but it works and fits on our tiny back deck) and the BF grilled us some NY strips while I did the sides.
Yes those were fresh green beans but my BF grew up with a traditional southern mama and can't stand to eat green beans that have not been cooked to within an inch of its life. So we're taking small steps with the green veggies.
And BF got real creative and tried to make a pineapple cake with the help from a Mr. Duncan Hines - and one 9" springform pan and one pie dish - and two cans of crushed pineapple and about 30 minutes too many in the oven. He was trying to replicate the "best cake ever" - the coconut pineapple layer cake from Vito's in Orlando, and he ... well ... not sure much with the "close." I commend him at least for trying and baking.
(Though this does make us even for my peach "biscuit" incident of '08).
