I was recently invited to Busch Garden’s 6th Annual Food and Wine Festival preview event on February 29th. Last year when we went to Busch Gardens I saw the “cabins” and advertising around the parks so I was excited to go check it out.

I did a thing today

May 14, 2018

Hi! It’s been awfully quiet around here lately. It looks like my last post was over a year ago. Oops. But alas, it feels like the time to write is here, so here I am. Ready to start over in the blogosphere. 🙂

So, today I did a thing. This is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while. I’ve put it off long enough and today felt like the right day for it. It has been in the back of my mind for so long. Do you ever have that? When you think of something you want, but it gets buried by the things you feel you have to do, that the things you want to do just fade away? Please tell me I’m not alone here!

Best Eats in 2016

January 13, 2017

Today I’m sharing with you some of our family’s Best Eats from 2016. 2016 took us to Puerto Rico, New York City and the Bahamas. Below you’ll find our best meals/snacks from 2016. Here’s our list of best eats for 2016.

January 2016

We started the year with an impromptu trip to Puerto Rico.  Going home means fruit flavored ice cream cones,fresh seafood and fresh coconut water. While visiting my dad, he offered me some coconut water. Sure, I responded. Little did I know, he was about to cut up a coconut with heavy machinery!

Prana Spring Style 2016

March 12, 2016

Through my partnership with SweatPink, I received a free pair of yoga capris in exchange for my opinions in this blog post. All opinions are my own.

With Easter just around the corner, it’s definitively starting to feel like spring cleaning time, or should I say spring shopping? 🙂 Let me introduce you to Prana. Prana is an American company out of California who takes pride in sustainable clothing for women and men. Whether you are out for a hike, doing yoga or more likely sporting nice yoga pants while you go “run” errands, they have you covered.  So, here’s my wish list of items from their 2016 Spring catalog. Let me know what you think!

Bathing Suits

Ok, seriously. It’s almost that time and living in Florida means that we’ll be swimming probably before Easter. I really liked their “create a suit” tool which allows you to choose the style of bathing suit first. Then, you are able to select your prints.

So many choices and beautiful print selections!

Cute Outfits

So, this outfit would work for casual Friday at the office, meeting with your friends or just being around town. I love the yellow print and white jeans are a must for spring/summer in my book.

With Strawberry Festival going on right now, this cute jumpsuit would be perfect! It also comes in black/white or purple, but I think the Sunwashed Red looks best.

Yoga

Whether you go to a studio for yoga classes or you practice at home, and even if you just love the comfort of yoga pants, these yoga capris are the softest cotton ever. Ever. While the ones I received for the review were the Maison Knicker ones, I’m confident that these would be just as amazing. Fit is something that I struggle with. Sometimes, I’m between sizes and sometimes one size fits too tight and the next size up fits too big. Argh. But with the Maison Knicker ones fit great. They were form fitting without compressing my lower half.
