Once in a Blue Moon

Blue MoonBlue Moon11

______Just the other week, I was lucky enough to win these precious Jojo Loves You Bling Earrings from a giveaway on Lyddie's blog.  These little guys are the perfect size, and I kind of can't stop staring at them and their reflective-y goodness.  Whenever you move even the slightest bit, the light catches these earrings in a different way and produces a spectrum of all sorts of new, exciting colors.  I'm pretty sure that these lovelies have some sort of magical powers--like the magical powers of summoning ancient dragons or cooking pasta al dente in under a minute.

I wish I had something deep and introspective to rant to you guys about, but I don't.  Not this week.  That being said, I guess I can ask you all a super important life question instead:

______What's your favorite pasta shape?

______Mine would have to be bowties, but those little squiggly dude noodles are pretty rad, too.

How cute are those earrings?! Amazingly cute! And that dress of yours is a serious eye-catcher! :)

Never thought about my favorite pasta shape...can't think of anything right now. :))

Sam said...

Congrats on your win, these jewels are beautiful! You look so pretty as always. Interesting, pasta shape, I'd say fusilli or penne!

Those earrings are crazy stunning! And I love your little blue dress with those rockin' cowboy boots. Such an awesome outfit Ali!

And my fave pasta shape is orzo.

LyddieGal said...

yay, i'm so happy you won Ali! the earrings you chose are gorgeous and I'm glad you are loving them.

My favorite pasta is capellini, or if I'm choosing a shape, the little star pastina.

Fabulous dress, necklace and cowboy boots. Congratulations on you win! My favorite type of pasta is bow tie.

Katie Aman said...

Wowie, what a pretty dress! I love the cutouts. The boots were such a fun choice too-a bit unexpected, but they look amazing! That shot of the earrings is definitely magical- I can see why you'd think they have magical powers! Love 'em. And to answer your question-my favorite noodle is rotini :) I really like whole wheat noodles too-they have better flavor. Haha, that's probably the best question I'll answer all day!

I like all kinds of pasta and in my not so humble opinion I'm good at preparing it...

Rebecca said...

What beautiful earring and your dress is amazing! Love the back detail! I would have to say my favorite pasta are the shells!


Well... said...

You know, I never gave much thought to what is the best pasta shape...haha, you always give me something to think about Ali ;)
I love this pretty blue dress you're wearing (oooh, cut out back, oh la la!) hehe. Also, those shimmery earrings would be catnip for people with ADD *_*

huge fan of dresses with boots! My favorite are the fusili cause the sauce always gets caught in the swirls

Angelica said...

In love with the dress! And I love your blog, and I'm definitely following you :D

Joyce said...

Your dress is so awesome, love how it has the cut out back! And sooo cute with the cowboy boots :) You style cowboy boots effortlessly, you make it not look too western/costume-y! And oooo those earrings really are cool. That would be so convenient to be able to cook pasta for the exact right amount of time. Hahahahah hmmm i think my favorite pasta would be macaroni or tortellini.
