Rachel Who?! Guida Who?! There's a new kid in town!

So, without further ado, I present my brisket....
I found this recipe online at the food and wine site. I like food and wine. Literally food and wine, so naming a magazine/website after two of my favorite things was a very smart move.

C said it's yummy, I'll take his word for it. Considering my 30 pound cat didn't like it makes me worry though....Anyone feeling brave enough for a dinner party?! My treat!

Supersize me...

So I have excessively been googling the heck out of "lose weight fast" diets and gimmicks. I realize healthy eating and working out are the best solutions, and I am willing to do that, but I do notice too that there are amazing products out there. For instance, the dumb bell phone. Really!? You are telling me this gadget truly exisits?! I am INTRIGUED and slightly upset that I don't have this already! My phone rings all the time at work. Imagine me picking up the 12 pound weight each time. Welcome to the gun show ladies and gents! HA!

My next favorite invention is the fitness vending machine. Yes, you heard me right. F*ing brillant! How many times have you been running on the treadmill and thought "geez, I could really go for a Kit Kat right about now?" BAM! There ya go! Kinda defeats the purpose of working out I think but my interest has been captured.

The one good thing that did come out of my investigative sluething was that the infamous Shake Weight is a bust. Damn. I worked my magic (batting eyes, pouty lip, whiny voice) to convince C that this MUST MUST MUST go on the registry and that whoever bought it for me was FABULOUS. After much chagrin (I did a demonstration in the store where I whacked myself in the lip with the box, dagger!) he gave in. Now I have to remove it. I hate when he is right :/

A small piece of my died when I found out that the chocolate diet is a myth. I hate you google, I really really do. Way to ruin a girls dreams! SHEESH!

I'm not on the wagon....

This is one bandwagon trend I am not too sure of. My problem is though I am such a sucker for celebrities. Seriously, if one put leeches in their eyes and said, "hey this works, do it" I probably would. However, this is something that I can't really justify.

Wow. I wonder what they will think of next...and will I be on board!?

Because I can, that's why!

So, C may call me cheap, but I call myself thrifty. Whichever you look at it, I like to save mula. So with that being said, I decide to save $75 and make my own veil. To me it was a success, it just needs a few alterations. To C, it was a disaster. All in all, the final product is yet to be revealed. Who would have thought that I would just need four key items to make this masterpiece?!
I have also decided that I can kick Martha Stewart's booty any day now. It's my new challenge and I am so curious to see what else I can make. Bring it on Martha!

Get your dancin' shoes ready!

I am not a fan of heels normally. I am more of jeans and tennis shoes type of girl. I also I am in search of something blue. So why not combine both?! I found light blue Chuck Taylor's on Amazon for $39.99. I'm thinking this might be a great investment! I am also slightly in love with these Louboutin's as well. I will not even mention the outrageous (but totally worth it!) price tag. The laid back comfy chick in me is saying Chuck Chuck Chuck! The this is my wedding damn it sex kitten is saying Loui! Loui! Loui! What to do?! In my utter disbelief while shopping around for shoes I found, gasp, HIGH HEEL TENNIS SHOES are back in style! I am both appalled and intrigued at the same time. Could this be the answer to my prayers or the worst invention ever?! Either way, I'm slightly curious and will continue to google the heck out of this until I have made a decision. Perhaps I can find blue ones? Perhaps I can incorporate both of my personalities into this one delight?! According to VS, "this new trend takes laid back and sexy to new heights." Where have these shoes been all my life?! I know, I know they have been stuck in the 1990's, but so I am! So, do I throw caution and tradition to the wind and go with the "normal" blue heel look? Or do I say screw it and go with the Chucks? Or, do I really throw a monkey wrench in the situation and go for 90's trend? Looks like I have some deciding to do!

Wish Upon a Wedding

I am a sucker for wishes and helping people, so this cause totally hit my heart strings. I encourage all to check it out and do their part (if possible) in promoting such an amazing organization.

Wish Upon a Wedding was founded in January 2010 by a group of wedding entreprenuers. It is America's FIRST non-profit wedding wish granting organization, producing weddings and civil union ceremonies at destinations across the United States for individuals facing terminal illnesses, regarding of sexual orientation.

I encourage everyone to take a look! Remember, everyone deserves to have their wishes granted!
