Outfit for the beginning of a short week!

Hello well I am so glad that this week is short and it's already Wednesday! Yippee!

Remember last week I posted this about a strawberry lemon trifle-ish dish---well I decided to make it on Sunday and it came out pretty good. I definitely have some tweaks that could make it better next time but this was a lemon mousse, strawberry, white chocolate mousse, strawberry layered yummy-ness.
lemon curd (I think it's called that)
melted white chocolate
started beating the whipping cream to add to the mousse
added the fluffy whipped cream to the white chocolate and lemon curd to make the two mousses
strawberries--they were perfectly sweet
all chopped up
start layering
all layered! Ta-da!

I would definitely recommend this recipe. The lemon mousse layer was pretty tart so I may cut the lemon juice down some. Let me know if you try this and how you like it.


I didn't have time for pictures before I left work and then I had zumba afterwards so I had to improvise and take some pictures in the elevator so they aren't the best quality but they will do. The hubs and I went to the Banana Factory store on Monday and the whole store was 50% off and then I got an email with a "mystery code" for additional percentage off. My mystery code was 35% off. I got a three-piece suit, two skirts, hubs two pairs of shorts, and a shirt and we had savings of $293!! Awesome!!

Here is one of the skirts I got.

 Skirt: Banana Republic
Top: Old Navy
Necklace: Small costume jewelry boutique in town
Shoes: Jessica Simpson
