It's New to Me

I had my first thrift buy yesterday afternoon. Here is my "it's new to me" outfit...
purple top - Target
black skirt -Target
polka dotted tights - TJ Maxx
Maripe peeps - Rack Room
necklace - gifted from Lynette (Happy Birthday Lynette!)
Karen Kane light blue peacoat - thrifted!
Yesterday I worked a 1/2 day for a dentist appt and to run errands. While Will stopped for a haircut, I perused the aisles of a local thrift shop and found this wonderful Karen Kane coat for the bargain price of $12! I looove the color and style. I also bought a Dana Buchman skirt for $6, but you'll have to see that another day.

Here was tonight's dinner....
Lemon Dill Tilapia
Steamed sugar snap peas*
Roasted rosemary potatoes

When I did this post, my friend Melissa found this blog full of fab recipes for me to try. V also tried a few and raved about the recipes she tried. One of her favs was this Lemon Dill Tilapia. I finally got around to trying it out. Now I have had sprinkled the dill and squeezed the lemon on my fish before, but this recipe definitely had more flavor and cooked beautifully. The only thing I would do differently is to use fresh dill. I didn't have any on hand so I just used the dried dill I had in my cabinet. Here is this wonderful recipe.
*oh and please excuse the sugar snap peas. I steamed them a tad too long. They were still good though.
I want to wish my dear friend Lynette a very happy birthday! I hope you had a great day! I think we should plan for a ladies lunch on Friday.
I also want to give a shout out to my friend, Patricia! It was been wonderful getting back in touch! I plan to make those cookies this weekend!
