A Day in My Life: Keys Edition

Hey Y’all!
            If you follow me on Instagram, you probably have seen countless pictures from my adventures in the Florida Keys. For those of you that don’t know, my family owns a vacation/weekend house here. Every time we come here it’s always a good time and full of new adventures. I thought a sort of “day in my life” post would be a fun thing to share with y’all. So, let’s get started!
           
            Most days in the Keys, like today, I get to sleep in.

            Once I finally stumbled out of my bed, I grabbed something quick for breakfast and browsed Pinterest. 



            The weather here has been iffy with a lot of thunder storms during the afternoon. But, today we got lucky and were able to take a boat ride over to a little “beach” that we like to anchor at for picnics and swimming. It is one of my favorite opportunities for family time.




 

            After some fun in the sun, we headed back to our little piece of paradise to get cleaned up and relax.
            Some nights we go out to dinner at one of the local restaurants, but tonight our neighbors offered to cook us dinner. How could we resist home-made picadillo and rice and beans?


That’s it for my very first “a day in the life” post. Thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions, comments, or concerns feel free to leave them in the comments section below or send me an email. I have some great posts planned for next week, so look forward to that, and have a wonderful day J

June Favorites 2014

Hey Y’all!
            This month has been all about trying new products; several of which have made their way into my day to day routine. I have been waiting to do a monthly favorites post for a while now. It’s a good excuse to think about which products I have been favoring more than others and give my opinions on them. So, let’s get started!
           
            Beauty:
1.      Avene Thermal Spring Water. I have mentioned this in some of my previous posts before, it is really that great. It adds extra hydration to my skincare routine, especially during the summertime.


2.      Maybelline Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara in Glam Black. Another favorite that has made frequent appearances here on my blog, this mascara is a great product to have when you are in a rush and want to give your lashes extra volume and length.


3.      Pixi Flawless Face Primer. I’m going to be honest and say that I have never been one to prime my skin. But, recently I have fallen in love with this primer because it gives my skin a nice glow and I don’t feel the need to wear a foundation over it.



            Fashion:
1.      Michael Kors Watch. I’m not exactly sure what style mine is because it was a gift from my parents for graduation, but I know that it is rose gold with a mid-sized face. I absolutely love it and wear it any chance that I get.


2.      Black tank top. A basic black tank top is a staple in my wardrobe. It’s a versatile piece that can work alone with a pair of high-waisted shorts or under a cute blouse.


3.      Jack Rogers in Fire Coral and Platinum. Again, I’m not exactly sure of the style because these were also a gift. If you are unsure about splurging on a pair of these, I highly recommend that you do. I wear mine every chance that I get and they dress up any outfit.



            Random:
1.      Orange is the New Black. I started watching this show earlier this month on Netflix, and enjoyed the storyline and sarcastic humor. But, they rated it “Mature Adult” for a reason, a lot of cursing and sexual references (sometimes scenes), so if you are sensitive to that I do not recommend it.


2.      Beat of the Music by Brett Eldredge. You can bet that 90% of the time, a country song will be my favorite song. I have had this song on repeat all month.


3.      The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I love reading, especially during the summertime by the pool or on the boat. I am probably one of the last people on earth to be reading this book, but I don’t care because it was worth the wait to read.
                                                                                   
                                                                            
            That’s it for my June (and very first) favorites! Thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions, comments, or concerns feel free to leave them in the comments section below or send me an email. I have some great posts planned for July, so look forward to that, and have a wonderful day J

Cook with Me: Quick, Easy Lunch

Hey Y’all!

            I’m sure we have all had days where we don’t feel like making anything for lunch or when nothing sounds good to eat. When I have days like this (which come more often than not), I try to stick to eating something that is quick and easy to make but that isn’t too little or too much. The great thing about this recipe is that it can be customized to whoever is eating it with anything, not just the ingredients that I mention, or made to be healthier. So, let’s get started!


            Easy Pinwheels:

Ingredients:


·         Mission Flour Tortillas

·         Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing

·         Publix Whipped Cream Cheese Spread

·         Delifresh Cracked Black Pepper Turkey Breast Lunch Meat

·         Mexican Cheddar Jack Shredded Cheese

·         Publix Matchstick Carrots

Directions:

1.      Start out with two (today I used one because I wasn’t starving) tortillas on a cutting board.

2.      Spread Cream Cheese on one side of one tortilla, then ranch on one side of the other (today I just did half and half).

3.      Put Turkey Breast Slices on top of the condiment spreads.


4.      Sprinkle shredded cheese on top of the lunch meat slices.


5.      Layer spinach on top of the cheese and lunch meat.


6.      Top off the ingredients with carrot shreds.


7.      Roll the tortilla like you would a burrito.


8.      Using a serrated knife cut the rolled up pinwheel into sections about one inch wide.


9.      Arrange slices on a plate on their sides so that you can see the rolled up ingredients.


10.  Enjoy!


            That’s it for my quick, easy idea for lunch! Thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions, comments, or concerns feel free to leave them in the comments section below or send me an email. I have some fun posts coming up next week so look forward to that, and have a wonderful day J
