Mung bean noodle stir fry & Spring wardrobe

Hello and happy Sunday to you! So spring is right around the corner and I don't know about you but I am tired of all the frumpy sweaters and boots! I am ready for all the cute dresses and accessories. How adorable are these dresses, and they are all in my favorite color TURQUOISE! they make me think of warm beachy days. I am dreaming of warm beachy days spent collecting sea glass and drift wood. I can't wait for the first warm spring day when the sky is vibrant blue, can't wait to take that photograph.

And how cute is this belt! I came across this while shopping online, I found it on etsyit's a snap belt and they cool thing is you chose the belt (which they come in various colors) and then you chose your buckle!They are interchangeable. I love them, so fun!found a super cute turquoise one with sweet little birds I have to have that one too! So what little accessories will you be incorporating into your spring wardrobe?

So now that spring is on the way I am thinking of all the light and tasty simple dishes I want to make.

Lovely post. Wonderful blog.

Blogwalking led me to your page. Those dresses are really very pretty. Turquoise is indeed an awesome color. In my tropical country however, turquoise is the color for summer (which is already here!). Sure would like to try out your mung noodle recipe (hoping I could find a substitute for the noodle atleast..wonder if its the same as vermicelli?) looks yummy.
