Oh the places I'd go...

Work has been great! But I could really use a vacation. For J and I to just go away together would be sublime! We may take a trip this coming spring, but trying to save for a house and possibly IVF we try to be careful with our money. So I've just been dreaming of the places that we'd love to go to. Hopefully we can cross them off our bucket list in the not too distant future.

Punta Cana, DR Excellence Resort

Costa Rica

Milan, Italy (Where my family is from)

Turks and Caicos


Somewhere in Spain; would like to see the Esquivias Castle

When I'm ready to go back to Mexico I'd love to actually see Tulum

I just want to stay in an over water bungalow so Bora Bora, Tahiti, or Fiji would be awesome!


Would Love to do this. All the monuments, museums, and FOOD! I would need at least a month ;)

Things I love right now...

What I'm loving right now

I always seem to find things I don't exactly need while browsing the aisles of Target. A few weeks ago I grabbed a pair of Mossimo Jeggings. I loved them so much I went back and got another pair in a different wash. They are comfortable, cute, and are easy to stuff into boots.

Pinterest is my new favorite obbssesion. It is a great website that let's you pin your favorite websites, pictures, quotes, recipes, ideas, the list could go on & on. Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes. If you want an invite leave a comment with your email and I'd be happy to invite you so you can get addicted too :)

Thankful Thursday

Today I'm especially thankful for my Mother. My Mom is an amazing woman, an unbelievably good friend, and one of the most selfless people that I know. I am proud to be her daughter. She has had a stressful time in her life, and may even need a hysterectomy to relieve her recent unbearable pain. I want her to know that she is always in my thoughts and prayers and I love her more than words could ever express. Thank you God for blessing me with the world's best Mom!! :)

Protein Packed "Frosty"

Want to indulge in a Wendy's Frosty, without all the guilt?

First you'll need to make your own sweetened condensed milk

1 (12 oz) can evaporated skim milk
1 1/2 c nonfat dry milk powder
1/2 c Splenda
In large bowl, combine all ingredients thoroughly. Refrigerate.

This recipe makes more than you'll need but it keeps well in the refrigerator.

Ok now to make the Frosty

You will need 6oz of the "sweetened" condensed milk
8oz of sugar free Cool Whip or a similar brand
1/2 gallon of low-fat milk
2 tbsp of sugar free chocolate syrup
1-2 scoop(s) of your favorite protein powder

Mix all ingredients in an ice cream maker for about 30 minutes.

Thankful Thursday

It is November, and of course I'm grateful all year long but I like to share what I'm thankful for especially this time of year.

I have so very much that I am blessed with but today I am especially grateful for my husband, and every little second we get to spend together. He is my rock, my best friend, and an all-around amazing husband. The last few months have been tough for us both, but he is always there to listen, and just let me vent or cry.  He is even going for his SA tomorrow and I know he is dreading it. He is the best man I could have ever asked for to be by my side.  I love you J, thank you for marrying me :) 

1Chronicles 16:34 Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.

What are you Thankful for?
