Floral Vest

I am totally into vests right now. I don't know if it's summer or what that's making me pick these gems to wear often but whatever the reason, I'm not complaining. I love this floral one because I can add some pops of color without going over top. Plus, I personally think stud accents should be a part of every outfit! What kind of vest is your favorite?

Perfect Pattern

I love when the hubby and I get to go out on a date night just the two of us. Every couple needs that alone time to reconnect no matter how many kids you have. My favorite part is getting all dressed up for my main squeeze and pretending like it's back in the day when we were first dating! I'm dying over this dress and will be wearing it ALL. SUMMER. LONG!!!

Clean Crockpot Chicken Taco Salad

Here's another healthy recipe that EVERYONE has to try! Every single person in my family {my parents included} thought it was awesome and the best part of all? It tasted just as amazing as left overs!!!! This is super easy and all you need is a few ingredients and a crockpot. Enjoy Loves!

Chicken Taco Salad:

1 pound of boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 C salsa {I used Herdez salsa verde}
1/2 C Rotel diced tomatoes with green chilies
1/2 can of black beans {drained}
1/2 can of corn {drained}
1 Tbs taco seasoning
2 avocados

Add chicken, salsa, Rotel, and taco seasoning in a crockpot and cook on high for 4 hours {or on low for 6-8 hours}. I personally cooked this batch for 3 1/2 hours because the men were starving and it turned out great! Once done cooking, shred chicken with two forks and add the black beans and corn. Stir together and let cook for a few more minutes to heat it all up. Serve over chopped lettuce and add diced avocado on top.

This is so easy, super yummy, and very filling! Make if for your fam ASAP and eat up.

More Bdays!

Last Wednesday was my friend Jasmine's bday.....she's as old and wrinkly as me now! We were lucky enough to get to celebrate the big day with her early this past Sunday with a super fun BBQ/Pool Party. Her dad grilled the most amazing food I have ever tasted and her hubby stepped in as the ultimate bartender whipping up dangerously good margaritas! We laughed and played with kiddos and had a fabulous day. Here are some snaps shots we got of the ladies!

Orange Animal Print

My go to item in my closet for summer is always a maxi. All you have to do is throw it on and you instantly look dressy and polished. It takes less time then jeans and t-shirt but looks insanely fab! I am also totally crushing on all different shades of orange right now. It's fresh, warm, and makes that summer sun-kissed tan look even better. What's your favorite shade?

Girl's Night Out

Every once in awhile I am lucky enough to get to hang out with my girlies and celebrate one of us aging more and more gracefully {yeah right} and this time it was Sharlee's birthday! My amazing hubby had boy time with my angel and sent me pictures throughout the night so I didn't miss him too much. What do you get when you combine cute girls + wine + gossip + fashion? An absolutely fabulous evening out.

If you want insanely delicious bruschetta and hand picked wines from all over, check out Postino's. This is where were celebrated and we also frequent a lot for relaxing nights and Sunday Funday. It has an artsy vibe and the people watching is always top notch! Haha oh the things that make my day. If you haven't checked this gem out, get one it!

Healthier Spaghetti

Most people have tried the popular spaghetti squash as a healthier form of spaghetti but I found this fab little recipe on Pinterest and thought I would give it a try. I thought it was really good and since it's so healthy and fast I will definitely be making it again. My husband is a huge carb freak so he wasn't too thrilled with it but if your hubby's like veggies then give this recipe a shot for sure!

Spaghetti Slaw:

1/4 C Water
1 bag of Broccoli Slaw
Pesto Sauce {In the original recipe it called for tomato sauce but I'm not a fan so I used this and I just eye ball it and taste to see what I like}

Bring a pot/skillet to medium-high heat on the stove. Add the slaw and 1/4 cup water. Stirring occasionally, cook until water has evaporated and slaw has softened slightly {about 5-8 minutes}. Then add the sauce of your choice and any other veggies you would possibly want to use.

Is that not the easiest recipe you have ever seen? 3 ingredients, 10 minutes, and a healthy dinner for your family! Seriously can't go wrong with this gem.

I also ended my healthy night with insanely gorgeous and delish bowl of cherries! Eating healthy doesn't have to be boring or tasteless.

I am so excited for my first edition of Asher's wardrobe! I love how much style my little guy has and the fact that he wants to wear whatever momma thinks is fab. We all know I am obsessed with stripes and also love mixing patterns. This is one stylin' babe and I'm so happy to call him mine!!!
