I know it’s been a little silent here for a while… I’m working on some topics and things, so I’m hoping to be posting again in the very near future!!! Stay tuned!!!
So I’m finally back in the gym after a 6 month hiatus (eeek really has it been THAT long!?) so obviously that means the eating healthy thing is happening too, I’m going to admit this is my downfall 100% of the time. I have a terrible awful time with eating the same thing over and over (unless it’s pizza or tacos of course) so I fail because I just get tired of eating the same things…so I’m always searching for something different…
So I found this recipe on Pinterest http://pin.it/e5SCcsL
So I decided to try it.
So if you are in the mood for something different definitely give this a try.
Enjoy, and happy eating!
Does anyone else feel this way??? It means summer is almost over!!! (Sorry, I live in South Florida and this summer has been so hot! Fingers crossed for a nice Fall)
It. Is. Pumpkin. Spice. Day!!!
Yes!!! It’s the day I wait for all year! The day Pumpkin Spice returns to Starbucks ( now before you get the wrong idea…this is the only time of year I drink Starbucks/coffee)
Nothing can bother me on this day, as Pumpkin Spice makes everything better!
Yes, yes, yes I know it’s all in the Spice…blah blah blah all the things Pumpkin Spice haters say… But I LOVE pumpkin.
Fall is my favorite, and I can’t wait for the pumpkins and Halloween and all the Fall things (that I wish I was doing but I’m not because I live in the tropics and we don’t have “Fall”)
I will not apologize for being basic in the fall! lol 🍁🍂🎃🕸
So this past Sunday I had the pleasure of marrying a beautiful couple. It was a sunrise wedding ( so super early!)
When I woke up I was kind of cranky, for no other reason than my alarm went off at 4:30 am… Ugh 4:30 AM!!! But no matter the time I was excited to marry this lovely couple.
When I got to the beach it was still dark, but there is something about the sea air that is good for the soul. It was a windy morning, but the breeze made it very delightful.
Once I got to the sand the waves were crashing, the breeze was blowing, and I could feel my mood and soul lifting. It was a beautiful morning for a wedding!
So I married the couple under this beautiful sunrise. It was a beautiful and intimate ceremony, and the groom surprised the bride by writing his own vows. It was beautiful. I wish them a forever of happiness, and thank them for letting me be apart of their special day and being able to witness this beautiful sunrise.
Soooo have you ever had a meal no matter what it is that instantly brings you back to a certain time, and it feels like you are there in that moment from the past?
I have a few meals like that, but most recently I had one that took my right back to high school on any given Saturday morning during football season.
I was in Marching Band, and football season always meant competition season! This is what we worked all summer for out in the unrelenting sun day after day, all day for months.
We would show up at the school around 6:30/7 am to get in one more full practice of our show before it was time to load up the busses and go.
Now anyone in sports or competition can tell you… There are some rituals that you always do before the big game, big competition what have you, and I was no different.
Every Saturday I would stop at this little corner store that had a little restaurant grill thing in it, and I would get a breakfast bagel and a Yoo-hoo I would sit on the floor in the hallway of our quiet high school (except for the band people running around) with my friends and we would talk and laugh.
The other day at work a coworker brought be a bagel sandwich and with that I walked to the corner store and grabbed a Yoo-hoo, came back and sat down to eat my delicious sandwich, and I was instantly in that hallway in my high school on any given Saturday during football season with my friends laughing without a care in the world.
I love the power that food has to take you back to a time filled with memories. These memories are what I thought about that day as I ate my sandwich and drank my Yoo-hoo. Then I immediately texted my best friend who was also in band with me, and let her know I was thinking of her and some of our memories from band.
I know the title of this blog makes it seem like a food blog, but it’s not a food blog 100% It’s more of a lifestyle blog from a girl who is always hungry. With that said…
My best friend and I went to lunch the other day at Cheddars (if you have one in your area and haven’t gone I would highly recommend that you do)… The prices are good and the portions are huge!!!
I was actually in the mood for a salad…it’s shocking for people who know me. Lol so I ordered the grilled chicken and blacked shrimp Asian salad. It was most delicious!
