Pink and Green

Is there a better color comb than pink and green?  (besides pink and navy, of course!)  I think not!  I got these pants from Factory and assume they will be back in stock in this color soon!  I was searching high and low for a dressier white top to wear with them so I could wear this outfit to a baby shower, but had no luck.  Casual had to do and non-shower ready.

Super Easy Egg Muffins

When I found this recipe on Facebook, I had to give them a try.  I am always looking for more protein-filled snacks (to keep me full!) and these are low calorie, low fat, low sugar, high protein.  Bonus:  they are ridiculously easy to make!

1 whole egg
2 egg whites
1/2 banana, mashed
A couple dashes of cinnamon
Two packets of Stevia

-Heat oven to 350 and spray a mini muffin pan with coconut oil spray
-Mash banana well
-Mix banana with remaining ingredients well
-Pour 1 to 2 tablespoons of mixture into each tin.  
*you could use a full size muffin tin and put 3-4 tablespoons in
-Bake for 20 minutes

These are only 15 calories a serving!!  Enjoy!

It's shopping time ladies!
This also comes in a lighter blue shade... I'm pretty sure I need both!

And I could wear the Old Navy shirt above with these.. which should be here any day now!  These are my staple shorts and they have them at Factory (not just regular JCrew!) for so cheap!  I like to add a few new colors each year and get more wear out of them than anything else in my Summer wardrobe.

Love.  Just love!

I love monograms and I love tortoise shell.  This is the perfect pair! 

I have been wanting some new, fun wine glasses to add to our collection.  I have also been on a big gold housewares kick.  This is subtle and vintage glamorous - love!

Speaking of Anthro... it appears I am on a patterned tee shirt kick right now?

Chunky/lightweight/summery sweaters?  YES!  I think sweaters and shorts may be my favorite items to wear together!

The perfect not-too-tight black maxi is hard to find and this fits the bill so well!

I have been eyeing these wedges for a couple of Summers... now that they come in navy I may need to make them mine!

Happy shopping!

Beige Fest

It's no secret that I love pink in a sort of annoying way, however, close to my love of all things pink is my love of beige.  Apparently, for me, the blander and more neutral, the better.  Seriously, I have yet to meet a neutral I don't like (my husband may disagree big time - especially when it comes to the the color of our walls.)

Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday lovelies!  I'm linking up with Amanda at Meet at the Barre for Friday Favorites this week!

Here's what I am loving this week...

My favorite sunglasses on sale at Nordy's this week! I have had my last pair for years and they are beat up so I used this as an excuse to invest in a new pair

How cute are these cooler bags I spotted at HomeGoods? I'm thinking I may need to go back and get one because they have wheels (perfect for the beach) and they have lobsters (duh!)

 I recently discovered the Artkive app and I LOVE it!  It lets you snap pictures of your little one's art work then save it and print it into a book.  I hate clutter and never know what to do with the zillions of pictures that come home and this solves my problem!

I took both of my babes for a hair cut this week and couldn't even handle how well behaved they were!  These two are pretty wild and crazy most of the time, but for some reason going to the hair salon brings on their best.  Maybe it is a sign it should be our new family hangout? (them at the hair salon is a favorite obvi!)

Finally, this recipe needs to happen stat! It is chocolate chip cookie dough bites made from garbanzo beans?  I will definitely be making this next week!

This was my favorite outfit from this week... mostly because I wore work out clothes all week.  I need more time in my day.  I wish I could be as put together as this all of the time!

This is the first link up for this so make sure you stop by Amanda's blog and link up or show some love!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Red, White and Blue

What does Spring weather make me think of?  Apparently the answer should have been snow since that was what was on the ground this morning when I woke up.  Not joking.  Not funny either Mother Nature.  I am longing for two days ago when it was 80 degrees and I could break in my new DSW wedges with a skirt and tee.  One day you will see the sun once more my friends... until then, rest up in my closet!

Crockpot Thai Peanut Chicken

I came across this recipe when I was looking for clean eating recipes I could make in the crockpot.  I made it last night and it was so tasty!  It was so easy and we gobbled it up!  I made a couple tiny tweaks to the recipe to fit our tastebuds a little...

One package boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 white onion, diced
1/2 cup creamy, natural peanut butter
3/4 cup organic chicken broth
1 lime, juiced
1/2 cup soy sauce (we used gluten free)
1 tsp cumin
Chopped scallions
Crushed peanuts

- Place chicken breasts in crockpot (mine were frozen) and onion
- In a bowl combine, peanut butter, chicken broth, lime juice, soy sauce, and cumin.  Pour over chicken.  
- Cover and cook on low 7-8 hours.
- Top with crushed peanuts and diced scallions.

I served ours on brown rice.  My kids actually ate a tiny bit which I will take as a win!

Happy eating!
