{Thrifted} Tees..Yes Please!

I found all of these t-shirts on my last thrifting adventure at Goodwill.  They are either from LOFT, Gap or Old Navy. I really love LOFT t-shirts so I'm always on the lookout for them.
The best part was that my bill came to $5.35 for all five of them!
I think that's pretty tee-riffic!

I'm Over at a Glimpse Inside

Today I'm hanging out with the uber creative Allison of A Glimpse Inside.  
We're getting up close and personal and I'm revealing what's in my handbag.
Secrets, I tell ya!!
Stop over and see me, won't you?
You know you're a little curious!

{Travel}College Visit...Family, Food & Fashion

Happy Monday! 
We just had a 3 day weekend which was nice but too short for spring break.
Last weekend we visited College Girl for her runway show.
My mother in law and niece came along so it was fun to give them a tour of the campus since it was their first visit. Before the tour we met up with College Girl for a quick lunch at one of our favorite places. I didn't take any food photos this trip (shocker!) but we did enjoy a lot of great meals.
We had to take them to this particular library on campus (I never noticed the pretty gold mosaic on the sign before).

It's really old and reminds us of Hogwarts.  There are so many nooks and crannies tucked away for studying and it smells like old's pretty special.
One of my favorite things to do is hang out at the campus hotel bar for a nightcap.  It was so nice out that we stopped in after our touring and sat outside on the balcony for a drink before dinner.   The sun was shining and we got to do a lot of people watching from our perch.
(Ok, one photo of food..the Chex mix is pretty delicious here!).
We all got ready for dinner (and I took an elevator selfie of the hubs and me) and met at the restaurant. We had a great meal and then took the short walk over to the runway show.
My daughter was on the design team for this menswear line.  She designed and constructed all of the accessories as well as worked on the construction of the entire line with the team. 
 The team is walking down the center of the runway. It was exciting to see this come together because they'd been planning/working on this since last summer.

She also designed two entire looks of her own.   Here's the first one.
Here is the second look (this model is actually is her sorority big sister too).
All of the second level designers and models.
A close up after the show.
This is one of my favorite shots--a daddy/daughter hug!
One of all of the girls.  What a fun night! We were blown away by all of the talented designers.
The next morning my hubby and I were up early so we decided to take a walk around campus.
It was eerily quiet but it was Sunday morning on a college campus.
I love walking around the campus and discovering new things.
We ended up at another favorite spot for coffee before heading back to the hotel to get ready for breakfast with the gang.  
After breakfast and some shopping it was time to head home. I was sad to leave but it was a great trip and she'll be done in less than a month!

{Recipe} Zucchini Bites

I had a couple of zucchinis in the fridge and was looking for a different way to prepare them (I usually roast or saute them).  
This recipe sounded good and looked easy.
 Start by shredding 1 cup of zucchini (I used most of a medium sized zuke).  Squeeze out the excess moisture from the shredded zucchini with paper towels.
 Mix the zucchini with 1/4 of a chopped onion, 1/4 cup of bread crumbs, 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese & 1 egg. Stir well to combine. Add salt & pepper to taste.
 (If you're not using a silicon pan like mine, spray a mini muffin pan with cooking spray first).
 Scoop the mixture into the mini muffin pan and press down each one with the back of a spoon. 
 Bake at 400F for 15-18 minutes until golden brown on top.
Serve immediately.
 Makes 12 bites.
Each one = 1 WW P+ (but so are two). :)  Three = 2P+
