Happy Happenings and a 4th of July Recap

5 Jul

How was your holiday yesterday? Ours was nice. We hung out with family and went to the pool for a bit. I tried out a new recipe for a Paleo coconut cream pie. I added berries to make it festive. It was pretty good even though I totally forgot to make the whipped cream topping. Whoopsies! Haha. Oh well,maybe next time I will add that layer instead of the berries. 😉 Here’s the recipe if you want to try it. It was pretty easy to make and tasted great! The only thing I regret is only getting one piece.

Paleo Coconut Cream Pie from Eat Nap Play

Passed out after a long day

This is what happened after our long day away from home. Little Mr. didn’t want to nap at his Auntie’s house, so he passed out on the way home. He’s so cute when he’s sleeping!

Paleo BLT Breakfast

Here’s another yummy recipe that I recently tried. It’s called the BLT breakfast. It was a nice rendition to the traditional bacon and eggs breakfast.

SLDesigns necklace

I’m excited to have won another Instagram giveaway for a beautiful necklace. This necklace is from SLDesigns. Their jewelry is unique and one of a kind. I’ve already added a few pieces to my Christmas list. It’s not too early, right? I think they may be having another giveaway soon, so be sure to follow them on Instagram if you’d like to win!

Make Your Own Coconut Water

I’m thrilled that Kellie from Nest of Posies featured my coconut water recipe on her blog recently. She added berries and took awesome pictures. Check out her post here. And here is my original post with the recipe.

Cheers! Wine and a wine barrel plant stand

Ahh, it’s time to relax and enjoy the weekend. It was great having yesterday off, but I was thinking it was Monday all day today. My days are all mixed up! So glad to have a couple more days off to unwind.  Cheers to the weekend!

How was your week and your 4th of July?


No Work Friday!

22 Feb

Today was a busy day for us. I took the day off, and I’m so glad I did because I’ve been under a lot of stress at work lately. This morning I went to yoga. It was a hot yoga class, and it felt so good. My whole body got a great stretch, and I sweated out the two gluten-free beers I had last night. I have cut way back on my alcohol consumption and feel so good. I went from drinking every weekend to once or twice per month. Last night was one of those times that I decided to indulge a bit. I felt like rewarding myself for a long, stressful week at work (even though I only worked 4 days!). This was my first time trying gluten-free beer, and I must say, I was surprisingly impressed. This is the kind I tried…

It was kind of pricey, about 8 bucks for a 4-pack, but it’s worth it since it doesn’t take me much to get a little buzz these days. 😉

After yoga, I came home, showered, and went grocery shopping with my boys. Woo hoo! Not! Still better than work though; that’s for sure! After shopping, we had a contractor come out to give us an estimate on remodeling our kitchen. I am looking forward to this and freaking out about it all at the same time. We have wanted to re-do our kitchen since we moved in over two years ago. We are now in a position where we can afford to do it. It’s exciting and scary at the same time; exciting because I cannot wait to get rid of our 1980’s style cabinets and counter-tops, and scary because it involves having strangers in our home every day for two weeks, and it costs a lot of money. I will write a post with some before and after pictures included once the process starts within the next couple of months. 🙂 After we had our consultation with the contractor, we met my hubby’s dad and his wife for dinner at our favorite Thai/sushi restaurant, and I enjoyed my favorite soup (Tom Kha Gai) and a Philadelphia roll.

We took Little Mr. with us again, and he was the best boy ever! I hope his good behavior continues, but I won’t get my hopes up. He’s only 9 months old. 😉 We will see how he acts when he’s 2! Tomorrow will probably be a busy day as well, but maybe I’ll be able to squeeze in a nap. Wouldn’t that be nice?!
