Taco Pasta Recipe & My First Birchbox

Hey y'all.
first of all, I have a recipe to share that I make once a week now.. it's that good!
it's called taco pasta & of course I found it on pinterest, but I altered the recipe a bit since I'm so picky.
here you go:
Taco Pasta
1 package medium shells
1 pound ground beef
3 ozs cream cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1 package taco seasoning
1/3 cup reserved pasta water
1 clove garlic
salt & pepper
Brown the meat.
Boil water for the pasta.
Add in salt & the pasta according to directions on package.
While the pasta is boiling, turn the temperature down to low and add the taco seasoning and garlic to the browned meat.
Drain the pasta.
Add the pasta, cream cheese, sour cream, salt & pepper & reserved pasta water to the ground beef.
Stir and let sit over medium-low for 3-5 minutes.
It should end up looking something like this:

Now, on to my first birchbox :)
I was so so so excited when Darren texted me & said that my birchbox arrived in the mail AND that I had a surprise waiting for me.
Well.. my surprise was small but really sweet & thoughtful.
Darren made me a card & had it delivered in a cute envelope:

He said I was supposed to hang it on the back of the door so I never forget to kiss either of them goodbye! It was such a cute idea.
Then, I opened my birchbox!

I was excited for EVERYTHING in there. Once I have a chance to use all of it, I'll review it all!
If you haven't signed up for birchbox yet, you definitely should!
And I'll leave you with a picture of my favorite (not so little anymore) little man...
Until Next Time,
