Boy Skills

After putting my mental list of "Girl Skills" into writing, I knew I also had to do one for the boys. I ardently love boys with all their muddy boots and sweaty palms and pyrotechnics. And there are some things*, a guy must simply know how to do.

Girl Skills

I'm not sure how I mentally composed this list--and I'm sure society had something to do with it... but every once in a while, I'll come across some task that I've casually mentioned to Paige, or another lovely female in my life only to find they have no idea how to accomplish it. To which I reply with a sigh "It's a girl skill."

Chicken Fingers with Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

Who isn't always in the mood for some delish chicken fingers? This was definitely my go-to on every menu between the ages of 4 and 14. And now it's back--but in a super easy (and much healthier) version you can make at home in about a 30 minutes!

And even Jk likes this honey mustard sauce (and he doesn't like anything mustard!).

Skinny Jean Love

I have attested to this many times before--but I have a heart for skinny jeans. Winter, spring, summer fall, flats, boots, heels, chunky sweaters, frilly tanks, plain t-shirts and warm cardigans--my skinny jeans are pretty much always with me.

And so, when I spotted a tiny hole on the well-worn knee of them (I know, what's with all these holes in my clothes, right?), I just couldn't sit back and do nothing.
