Denim Jumper | Bodysuit | Vans | Sunnies | Puka Shell Bracelet | Rope Bracelet

Never say Never!

Like when I say, I’ll never, ever, eva wear……

White sunglasses – that’s pretty accurate. I don’t see that changing.

Teva Sandals – it’s a hard pass. I’m sure they are incredibly comfy and all, but it aint happening over here.

Overalls – technically this dress is considered overalls….so?

Puka shells – I’m back on the puka shell train. After years of being horrified of the puka shell chokers that were once in style. You know what I’m talking about? Yeah, those.

Here are some of the others that I posted on Instagram stories today.

Suffering from a case of the Spring Show hangover. I’m exhausted. I cannot even imagine how all the kids are feeling today. So proud of not only my girl, but all the Spring Show kids. It was a busy weekend and these kids gave it their all in the show ring.

{spring break recap}

dress: bella moda boutique | bag | earrings | sandals

Reentry is no joke. After a week off from work + school for Spring Break, we are back at it today. Not going to lie, I’m strugglin hard. I’m on my 2nd cup of coffee. And I’ve got an iced coffee in my near future. I walked into my office at 7:45 am this morning and instantly felt at home. There is something to be said about routine. Really, really missed mine. Although we had a fucking blast last week.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Get Timothy + Archie Spring Show ready
  • Eat healthy AF using my WW app
  • Drink a shit-ton of water (I don’t think I’ve had any since April 19th)
  • Start making my bed again (also haven’t made it since April 19th)
  • Clear out email inboxes (one had over 900 emails…FML)
  • Make my favorite {thai coconut curry shrimp}
  • Try a DIY cropped sweatshirt
  • Target Tuesday…share all the things Target
  • Come up with a yummy, yet healthy dessert for my sweet tooth

This week on the blog: What I ate (my zero point food diary). Target Tuesday. Things I’m diggin in April.

Highlights from the Week…..

Kicked off Good Friday with Martini Mama Liz’s famous martinis. Needless to say, we got tips!

Sweater Tank ($12)| Denim

Saturday we celebrated Timothy Easter. GG and almost all of her great-grand kids.

My Easter salad with the edible flowers. Although, I don’t recommend eating them. GG said they didn’t taste all the great…lol. This is actually my {asparagus salad}

Someone was hoping BIG time they’d find the Golden Egg….and she did!!

Bay’s off the shoulder top: J.Crew Factory

The Easter Bunny left Bay some treats

{egg roll bowls}

Happy Spring Break! We’re off to the beach for some vitamin Sea. Much needed sand between our toes + sunshine on our shoulders. The thought of not setting a 4:30 am alarm all damn week has be straight up giddy! Ha!

I did get some time last week to pre-blog some content. And this one was highly requested, so here ya go!

I have something to admit….

I didn’t make a real dinner in over 2 weeks. We’ve been so busy, that I just haven’t made the time. Nugget’s salad bar chicken has become a staple in my diet…lol. Bay’s been living on taquitos + corn dogs. And let me tell you, she hasn’t complained once. But, I feel so much better when I make a healthy dinner. And we sit around the table. Say our daily peeks + pits.

I missed it. So last week, I finally made time to cook. We had our first al fresco dinner.

The best part?

I made a zero weight watchers point meal. And we both LOVED it. Added rice to Bay’s because clearly she can use all the carbs.

It’s uber healthy. Uber easy. I’m talking like 10 minutes max. One pan.

Wham bam thank you ma’am!
