    I found this recipe on Pinterest, it is not my recipe. I just copied and pasted from mamamiss.com, the only thing i changed was using a rotisserie chicken for the meat instead of cooking the chicken breasts. This recipe is my new favorite it so delicious i didn't need to change a thing! I had to share it with my readers, i hope you all enjoy this soup as much as i do !

Some photos from a fun day spent in seaport village with some dear friends.  On another note I have been wanting to buy some VSCO film presets for so long and finally got around to getting some this past weekend and I am in LOVE ! I edit all my iPhone photos with vsco and when I found out they also have them for Lightroom 4 I was more than excited! I've been having some fun playing around with the different presets in the photos above, it saves me so so much time editing and gives such a clean and sharp look to all photos. I highly recommend these presets to anyone who uses Lightroom ! I purchased packages 1 and 5 and am looking forward to getting some more in the future!

Last weekend I was finally able to knock two things off my bucket list that have been on there forever : The Kobey's Swap Meet and Little Italy's farmers market.  If you live locally i highly recommend going to this farmers market ! They have it every saturday in Little Italy, San Diego. While you are there i recommend heading over to Napizza for lunch, they have delicious lunch specials which are very affordable ! Napizza is our new favorite eating spot for sure.
