Forever Frugal Friday

i fell in love with this striped cutout dress after seeing it on stephanie sterjovski's instagram feed the other weekend.  i think it is so cute and fun and summery and i am crossing my fingers that i find it at my local forever 21 this weekend to wear to a going away party saturday night. 


Song of the Week - Harlem

anybody else wish they knew how to break dance? 

i am loving the new politics "harlem" song oh so much this summer.  it's a little bit punk and a lot of fun!  plus it makes me want to dance or take a road trip with my head out the window hair blowing in the wind.  pure fun and excellence!


Word Up Wednesday



yay for early release days, yay for america's b*day, yay for thursday off and yay for warm summer days! 


Yoga Newbie

am i the only one who finds yoga intimidating? 
my friend b has really inspired me to finally give this yoga thing a try (also every time i get a massage they remind me how tight i am and that i need to incorporate some yoga into my routine).  living social also inspired me with this incredible deal for a month unlimited for only $30 at yogaworks (actually only $20 using the promo code FREEDOM at checkout)! 
and so, i have my month unlimited, my inspiration and my fingers and toes crossed that this yoga thing works for me.  i am nervous as a beginner and also nervous that i will look like a fool in front of everyone, but i am going to give it my all. 
any tips for this novice? 

Make This - Skinny Lettuce Wraps

(from my @lyndsylee instagram)
now that it is officially summer, i decided it was a good idea to lighten up our usual "casserole monday" with some absolutely delicious skinny lettuce wraps!
last night i took a chance and tried out this recipe from makeshift margaritas and let me just say the results were outstanding and a great success!  best part, they were so incredible easy to make! 
*1 lb. ground turkey or ground chicken
*2 tablespoons low-fat peanut butter (i used regular)
*3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
*2 tablespoons low sodium teriyaki sauce (i used trader joe's soyaki)
*1 can water chestnuts, drained
*1/2 chopped onion (i used the entire container of trader joe's onions, garlic & shallots pre-cut)
*1 head of lettuce washed & divided into large pieces for wrapping
*i added some freshly chopped mushrooms
1. Brown ground meat until fully cooked. Drain any fat.
2. Add peanut butter, soy sauce, teriyaki, onions,*mushrooms* and water chestnuts. Mix until combined. Allow to simmer for about 5 minutes (i let it simmer for about 10-12 minutes).
3. Spoon meat into lettuce and wrap.
