Sweet Potato Burgers

I'm trying my hardest to cook more for my family. Twice a week is my goal but that goal is sadly hardly reached. 

I was really proud of these sweet potato burgers.

2 cups mashed sweet potatoes (or yams)
2 bulbs of roasted garlic, minced
1/3 cup panko bread crumbs
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon cumin
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
2/3 cup plain greek yogurt or sour cream
extra salt and pepper for seasoning yogurt/cream

Seeing stars

Top: Old Navy
Pants: Target via swap
Shoes: Banana Republic

Looking back on this outfit, I would change out the shoes for a nude color. That's what my blog is for- making changes for the better!

Do you ever look back and think if you just changed one aspect of an outfit, it would have worked better?

Hubby's 30th

I took my husband out for his 30th Birthday a few weeks ago. It was SUCH A NICE DAY!!! We went to Laguna Beach and did a Clue Hoo Scavanger Hunt. It was so much fun. I bought it on Groupon for $20 for both of us. If you're ever in Laguna, try it!

Maxi to Midi Sewing Job

This skirt was an awkward length, not quite maxi, not quite midi so I decided to make it a midi.

It was an easy fix. There was a lining that I measured pinned and then did the same to the patterned overlay.

Cobalt Dress

 This dress was on sale at Kohl's for $6.80. All clearance was 25% off and I used an additional 15% off coupon. Some of my husband's family were here and wanted to treat me so this dress was a gift from them. It was only a few dollars but it was a great gift!!! I love the cobalt color and the cut of this dress. The sleeves are nice and the length is long enough too. All around:  A+
