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?


February Favorites

Hello Everyone! This is my first ever link-up post. I am really excited to share this post with others and find new blogs to follow through the link-up. I am joining Ashley from Dancing With Ashley and others in The Favorite Things Link-Up. Visit her site to see her favorite things, link-up with us, or find other blogs to check out. I know I recently did a favorite things post (Click here to see that one too!), but I still have more favorites to share, so here it goes…


I just used this and my face feels amazing! I will write a review for this product soon. Love it!

Nemo1st Swim Lesson

Little Mr. had his first swim lesson this week. Seeing him growing up is definitely one of my favorite things. I can’t believe he will be 9 months old tomorrow! It’s gone by so quickly!


I made some yummy guacamole last weekend. Avocados are one of my very favorite foods. I eat them almost every day. So good!


I just diluted some of this in water for a great smelling room spray. I like to spray it in my room before I go to bed. It helps me to relax. I just love the smell of eucalyptus!

What are some of your favorite things from this month?

Oh, what a day…

1 Feb

It’s been a long day, not in a bad way. It’s actually been a pretty good one overall, just long. My brain is pooped from a busy day at work. I’m not excited that I have two more days of it ahead of me either (boo Saturday rotation!). But, on a high note, I had a new outfit to wear today. That helps a lot! I scored a sweater and some skinnies from the clearance rack at Macy’s for a whopping total of 28 bucks! The cashier was surprised at all my great finds. I think she was just as excited as me when my purchase of three pairs of jeans and a sweater came to a total of $77. Woo hoo! Anyway, here is a picture of the outfit I wore today..


My favorite part is the zipper pockets on the pants, very punk rock! Heehee

When I got home from work, I got to play with my little man and hang out with the hubs. The hubby made me a yummy taco salad for dinner. MMM MMM!


After dinner, we watched a documentary called “Catfish”. It’s about a 24 year old guy who meets someone on the internet who turns out to be someone unexpected. I really recommend it. It was quite entertaining, and I heard they now have a series on MTV. I’ll have to check that out soon! But, for now I’m going to get some ZZZ’s. Another long day awaits me tomorrow. Night night!
