Coastal Weekend!

Tomorrow we are going to Cambria and Capiotla for the Holiday weekend. Celebrating my mom's birthday and having a family portrait done at the beach since my brother is leaving in 11 days (tear).

Yesterday I was featured at My favorite Finds, please go and check out her blog and follow!

Favorites from around the web:

DIY Vintage button necklace.
I love this look
Funny shirt!

( I sucked at surfing the web this week, studying for my Life & Health exam)

(Last Saturday rooting on the 49ers, hoping they win again Sunday!)
Any fun plans for the weekend? Have a great one!

Black Bean Burger

Black Bean Burgers are delicious especially with all the right toppings. I have been juicing 2 meals and eating 1 healthy meal daily, this was my healthy meal last night. Very quick and easy. I used MorningStar Farms Chipotle Black Bean Burger, a whole wheat bun, Tomato, Romaine Smoked Gouda and delicious Bruno's Peppers.

Bruno's is local to me but you can definitely have them shipped to you, possibly the best pepper ever.
Costco carries the Black Bean Burgers
Has anyone made their own Black Bean Burgers? Send me your recipes!

Juice Bandwagon

Today is my first official day of jumping on the juicing bandwagon, I don't have my own juicer yet since I am a "bandwagoner" I want to make sure this isn't a 3 day fad for me (many things are). My cousin lives around the corner and I am using her juicer for now, she loves juicing and has been doing it for awhile now.

Ingredients:  2 Beets (stems and all), Ginger (about 1 knucle, peeled), Romaine Lettuce (1 bunch), Celery (1 bunch), Kale (1 bunch), Oranges (4), Cucumbers (3), Carrots (6 to 8)
Wheat Grass shot from Jamba
Anyone else on the juicing bandwagon? Send me your recipes, please?!

Counting minutes until the Weekend!

Hello almost weekend...1 hour and 56 minutes until I'm off for the weekend. I count minutes even though I love my job can't imagine if it sucked, boo.

This weekend will consist of nursing a cold, double boo. Doggie sitting Martini Anne for the bestie. Getting a pedicure with the hubs tomorrow, I havent had one since September. Watching the 49ers in my new 49ers sweatshirt (picture coming soon). Possibly cleaning out my closets (I wouldn't hold your breathe for that one). Celebrating a birthday of a family member Sunday, sans Hubs since he has to work, boo again. Studying for my Life and Health exam. Working on some new mugs for my etsy shop, they will be listed on Sunday, I'm really excited about them.

Also my brother will be leaving for boot camp (U.S. Navy) at the end of this month it makes my heart heavy, I know that it will be a great expierence and I am more than proud  but I will miss him to pieces, I'm conflicted and basically an emotional wreck.

Favorites from the web:

Tangerine Champagne

Great tip for cheap jewelry!

Fav lotion. Perfect for dry skin.

Lasagna roll ups!
Have a fantastic weekend!

Crudités Basket

I first heard the word crudités in culinary school, I absolutely love the sound of that word.

Crudités are traditional French appetizers comprising sliced or whole raw vegetables which are sometimes dipped in a vinaigrette or other dipping sauce. (Source:Wikipedia)

I attended a 1st birthday party where I saw a amazing crudités basket. I will be making one for the next event I need to bring something to. The one pictured had three different dips, you could do one or two and whichever vegetables you like I put a dent in the celery and cucumbers.

How do you normally serve your veggies? Would try this?

Welcome 2013

I've been on a bit of a hiatus. Unfortunately I had some health stuff going on, I'm starting to feel like myself again and will hopefully start posting regularly. Need to catch up on putting away laundry, dusting and finish taking down Christmas decorations.  I hope everyone had a wonderful New Years, Cheers to the endless possibilities that 2013 may bring.

I don't do resolutions mainly because I don't keep them. Here are some goals...

1. Be the most loving, caring and awesomest wife I can be.
2. Be kinder, more forgiving and less negative.
3. Spend less.
4. Eat healthier.
5. Do more laundry.

Short list: Read more books, watch less tv, don't leave dishes in the sink, stopping stressing over small things.

Do you make resolutions? Do you keep your resolutions? Happy, Happy New Year!!!
