I've decided winter is over! Well maybe not, but I'm so over soups and the crock pot. I decided this week just because it feels like winter doesn't mean I have to eat like it's winter. This salad is inspired by one of my favorite salads I get in Scottsdale. I can even get my husband to eat this salad, he claims "it's the best salad" I make. Even though we have a few more weeks of winter, we might as well eat like it's spring! So pour yourself a Arnold Palmer and enjoy this refreshing salad.
Shout out to all the romancers like me who love everything about Valentine’s Day! From heart shaped bacon to lipstick on the mirror... I have so much fun finding the cheesiest ways to remind those that I love, that I love them on Valentine’s Day!
Today’s DIY tutorial (designs included) beats the typical drugstore card. Forget I mentioned cheesy earlier because these three card designs include lucky scratch tickets for date night ideas, love coupons, and reasons why I love you! Who wouldn’t love receiving one of these.... hello to an evening at the lake followed with a nice long back massage!
Happy Friday! I have lots to look forward to this weekend, it's my 30th birthday and hopefully baby Leo will also decide to make his appearance. I'm happy to be making my last pregnant fashion post for awhile. As much as it has been fun dressing this bump, I'm so excited to be back into my normal clothes. Warning....I'm 39 weeks here in these photos and feeling like I look 39 weeks pregnant! We also have some exciting news about a new guest blogger joining us... make sure you read to the end to meet who that person is!
This blog post needs no introduction this is the last part of the create healthy habits for 2016 series. I hope just because the end of January is nearing you haven't given up on living a healthy and happy lifestyle in 2016. Once I get this baby out I plan on sharing with you lots of workouts and healthy recipes and build upon all these tips I've shared with you.
I'm all about drug store finds! From makeup to hair products it is nice to be able to find some inexpensive items from the drug store or grocery store. Each year I'm all about trying new products, we posted our favorite drug store finds for you guys back back in 2014. click here to check that post out. I am back with a few more of my favorites from the past year!
I find it hard to dress myself being 38 weeks pregnant. Mind you I took these photos at 36 weeks. I won't lie as of the past few weeks 90% of the time I'm in sweats, but as the days drag on and I'm awaiting the baby's arrival I decided I needed to get dressed up and go out. I wanted to play around with my look and came up with this one. The only maternity item I'm wearing are the pants. I love the way it turned out and I'm sure it would look even cuter on a non pregnant person.
Back at you with more quick healthy habits. Just this week and next week left so I hope you are finding a few to incorporate into your routine. I'm personally struggling with #1 this week. With the non stop pouring rain and the last month of pregnancy that is seeming to last forever I needed this weeks post as a reminder.
I am sure happy about how our baby boy's nursery came together. So proud that I had to share it with you. I have been dreaming about this nursery since I can remember. My Grandpa was a WWII fighter pilot, I grew up listening to all of his stories of the war. He was a hero to many especially all of his grandchildren. I had a very special bond with my Grandpa thankfully he lived into his 90s and we were all able to spend alot of time with him. It had been my dream to have a nursery themed after him. My Mom had saved and framed his fighter jacket and I have always loved looking at it. When we found out we were having a boy I asked my mom if I could have the jacket for the baby's room. So the jacket as seen in the far left of the photo was the simple inspiration for this ALL BOY airplane nursery.
Is everyone keeping with those new year resolutions and getting to the gym? I have found that if I am already in my workout clothes I am more likely to get a work out in. Just simply throwing on your lulu's and runners when you get home after work instead of going right to the sweats can be enough to burn a few more calories than usual. I am more likely to jog out to get the mailbox, take a walk after dinner or go play fetch the with dogs if I am already dressed for the occasion. Because lets face it, once I am in my sweats there is no getting me out of them.
I'm back with more healthy habits for 2016! I hope you were able to incorporate the ones I shared with you last week. If you missed the first post you click here to read it. I'm back this week with part two, five more tips and tricks to get your life in perfect shape for 2016.
