Florida day 2!

Good morning!  I hope your weekend was great and your Monday is off to a good start! Fortunately, we are still enjoying the Florida sunshine.  We are off to go on a run then go rent bikes for the day! 


The rest of Sunday consisted of long walks.


Golf cart rides.


and board games.


Did I tell you our golf cart for the week is named Barbie? 🙂


Oh, and there was a lot of drone flying going on at the beach too!  Pictures to come later!


I love all the pretty trees here.

Isn’t this street so beautiful with the trees that create an arch?


Apparently, people actually get married here underneath these beautiful trees.


I love jackets with the thumb holes in them! 


Lunch was a salad and my leftover sweet potato!


More walking!

Spotted this cute cat.


And the beautiful ocean again.


So many beautiful views on the island.

Hummus and crackers and cucumbers for a snack.

How cute is this sign for wet clothing after being at the beach?


More snaps from my sister of the pups!! Love the updates! 

We went to dinner at the Pink Elephant and my husband ordered a jalapeno margarita and when it arrived we both died laughing because it was pink!!  I had to get a picture…. but it took quite a few takes. 

Okay, that will do.  🙂

For dinner I got the grilled swordfish with roasted brussels sprouts and asparagus.  It was heavenly!! 


Off to go for a run then bike around the island!  Have a great Monday!


  1. What was your favorite part of the weekend?  
  2. Do you like spicy drinks?
  3. Do you do any biking?


It’s Friday!! a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

Happy Friday party people!!!! Woo the weekend is finally here and we are getting ready for a dinner party at our house tonight (my sister has called me everyday this week to add an extra guest to the party).  The more, the merrier.  Time to get to work!


Here’s a little look at my busy Thursday!

5AM alarm goes off for my early morning workout class (body pump, ofcourse)… This one was not amused.  Riley is not a morning person (dog) at all.  If I get up before 7am, I usually have to pick him up and carry him to the door or he will not get up.  Hey, I don’t blame him…sleep is good 🙂

Morning yawns and stretches. 5 more minutes mom, please.


Really mom?  It is SO early.


Fine, if you insist, I’ll pose for you.  But you must carry me downstairs.


Gym followed by a healthy breakfast omelette.  Cook a few handfuls of spinach, whisk 1 egg and 2 egg whites together (add salt, pepper, chili powder, and garlic powder) and pour mixture over spinach.  Cook for a couple minutes (left picture) then flip (right picture) and continue cooking for 1-2 more minutes until golden brown and both sides.

I think every omelette should be served with avocado (salt and pepper) slices on top and a side of sliced bananas.  

I could eat this meal multiple times a day and be happy.


Riley was so excited to go on a car ride yesterday morning…


Until he found out he had to go get a shot at the vet… Mom, please don’t make me!


Looking through my new smoothie book for some new recipes to try.  I thought these both looked good!

So off to the grocery store I went to stock up… party food on the top, fresh foods are covered (so many strawberries, bananas, and 4 pineapples…I sure do love my fruit).  


Quick lunch of mixed greens, candied pecans (sauteed in coconut oil and tossed with stevia off the heat), strawberries, and balsamic vinaigrette. 

Enjoyed my salad with a side of my favorite Trilogy Kombucha.  


My best friend, Lissa, sent me this poster and my husband framed it and hung it for me!  Love it.


Riley so happy to go on a long walk.

Callie was excited too!  She is such a good girl.

How could you not be happy with this weather in January?? 64 degrees on our walk… I just can’t believe it, but I love it!


The pups sure love this weather too 🙂

I have a super busy day today so I will talk to you all later!! I hope you have a great Friday and have an amazing weekend too!!


  1. Do you have dogs? Do they like to sleep in?
  2. How is the weather where you are?
  3. Tell me your weekend plans!
