Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! We finally made it to the weekend! Today I thought I’d do something a little different and share with you some of my favorite things that I’ve found while searching the internet. How cute is this scene for throwing a birthday party for a little girl?!  Heck, I’d like it even for myself! I’ve been wanting to try this lemon blueberry layer cake for so long.  Maybe I’ll make it for 4th of July. I’m obsessed with this summer outfit. In fact, I love almost every outfit that Rach wears. I get a lot of home decor inspiration …

Hummus and Quinoa Salad

What motivates you to workout? The other day someone asked me how I stay motivated to workout six days a week.  The answer is I like food.  All joking aside, I’ve always been pretty good about sticking with a workout routine.  I feel that it’s good for the body and the mind.  I even work out when I’m on vacation.  Yup, I’m serious and my husband can vouch for me.  I still manage to gain weight on vacation, mind you, but it does help to counteract all of the extra calories that I consume. Food, on the other hand, is my downfall because… …

Homemade Iced Tea

Did you know that it’s easy to make iced tea?  Okay fine, you probably do. I didn’t even know that one could make iced tea at home until my husband showed me a few years ago.  I’m not sure why I was that naive because you can pretty much make anything at home.  Nevertheless, I learned something new and I haven’t bought a tub iced tea powder since then.  I really thought iced tea just came from big tubs with little plastic scoops in them. It’s a staple in our home all summer long and I made the first batch …

June Favorites

Happy Wednesday!  Today, I thought that I’d share some of my recent (and random) favorite things with you. Shirts that are dresses.  I love this Express’ shirt dress so much that I bought it in black and in a print.  It’s super flattering, comfortable, and versatile.  You can wear the dress with heels for a summer wedding or with flats or espadrilles for a more casual occasion.  My husband says that this dress looks like a long shirt.  He described himself as “the opposite of someone with any fashion sense,” but he’s not wrong.  That’s why “they” (the fashion industry?) call this style a shirt …

Breakfast Pizza

Have you ever made a breakfast pizza?  It’s life changing. I took all of the usual egg breakfast suspects, added some mozzarella cheese, put it all on a piece of Naan bread, and I’m calling it a breakfast pizza.  Guys, this is my favorite breakfast right now.  No joke. As with any personal pizza, you can dress it up however you like.  If you want to skip the bacon, then go for it.  If you want to add waffles on top instead of eggs and potatoes, then…  well, a carb on top of a carb might be weird but I say do …
