Monday Mingling: Weekend Recap

I had a pretty relaxing weekend after traveling out of town the past few weekends so I don't have a whole lot of exciting stuff to share. I did get to catch up on my beauty rest which was fantastic ;-)

On Friday night K and I went out for our usual happy hour cocktail and dinner. We always cook dinner at home during the week so it's nice to eat out on the weekends.

We decided to stop at a bar before heading home and I ran into this good looking silver-haired guy.

On Saturday we went to a small party over at our Neighbor's house.  She made this awesome Reese's Peanut Butter Chocolate cake, which was to die for.

A group of us played Cards Against Humanity, which was really funny and can also quite disturbing at times so it's not for the faint of heart.

On Sunday, K and I cleaned the house and lounged around in our PJs all day. It was cold outside and we didn't feel like doing too much. Later in the evening we grilled some Ribs and I baked a Corn pie casserole for dinner. I posted my Corn Pie recipe a few months ago here.

And that's all for my weekend!
I'm super excited to be a sponsor on this month. I hope everyone has a great week!

What I'm Loving Wednesday

Hey hey! I'm Joining Jamie today for the WILW Linkup.

I'm loving the weather today in Florida ~ Sunny and 75 degrees is perfect!!

I'm loving my new necklace from KOJewelry. Wore it to work today.

 I've finally recovered from our Girls (Shenanigans) weekend in Tampa. What's not to love abou that? Yup, it proved that I'm no longer 21 and it now takes several days to recover.

Love this customized Tervis Ice Bucket. It was given as a gift at the bridal shower over the weekend. Such a cute idea!

I'm loving these outfits I found recently on Pinterest.

Finally, I'm always loving my hubby.

Enjoy the rest of your week!

Being a Tourist in NYC

Hi Everyone!

So I have started to research and plan our anniversary trip to New York this summer and I could use some advice from anyone familiar with the city. I have never been to NY and K has only been for business so we want to have the whole tourist experience in 3-4 days. 
I have two friends that live in Manhattan and both girls advised me against staying in Times Square area because "it's too crowded" and "crazy expensive".  Funny enough, I think we actually want to stay in the heart of all the action and experience the craziness of NY.  Less walking and shorter taxi rides to get to the main attractions sounds better to me... but maybe I'm wrong or missing something?

I've found a cute hotel in the heart of Times Square. Now I want to get some advice on the must-sees and dos for a tourist in NYC. I'm interested in anything from pubs/bars, food/restaurants, shopping, shows, monuments/museums and any other attractions that aren't crazy expensive.

I know I want to see the obvious - Times Square, Rockefeller Center, 9/11 Memorial, Statue of Liberty, Central Park...Any other tips or advice would be mucho appreciated :-)

I'm joining Lisette today for the Just Because Linkup.


H54F: Girls Weekend

Happy Friday! So excited the weekend is here :-)

1. Excited for our girls tripped planned to Tampa on Saturday. We're headed to a bridal shower downtown Tampa then booked a hotel room so we can go out bar hopping in the night. 

2. My festive nails for the weekend. Bought these colorful nail art stick ons from CVS.

3. Love my new Coral peep-toe wedges that I got on sale from Kohl's.

4. Thai food = delish. My team and I went out for Thai lunch today. Pad Thai with chicken and shrimp is awesome!

5. K and I are going with his company to a hockey game tonight. I'm not exactly a huge hockey fan but can't beat free tickets and drinks on his boss ;-)

I'm joining Lauren today for High Five For Friday. 


I hope everyone has a fun weekend!

WILW: Sassy Water

Love the new recipe I got from a friend for Sassy Water. It's supposed to help flatten your stomach and reduce bloating so I decided to try it this week and it's a keeper. 

To make one pitcher of Sassy Water:

8 cups of water
1 medium cucumber, peel and slice
1 medium lemon, slice thinly
12 mint leaves, torn into small pieces
1 teaspoon grated ginger  

Mix all ingredients in pitcher
Leave in fridge over night
Strain water
Drink all 8 cups throughout the day

I'm loving that I won a Free 1 Topping Pizza from Papa Johns' Super Bowl Coin Toss Giveaway. Did anyone else choose heads? They sent out this email to all winners on Monday night.

I'm loving these meatloaf muffins with mashed potato topping that my friend made for the Super bowl on Sunday. I found a recipe here. Really cute idea for parties.

I'm loving the colorful flowers K surprised me with on Monday.

Lastly I love this bracelet and beach coverup I found on Pinterest.

This is me in a nutshell.

I hope you all enjoy the rest of the week!

Super Bowl XLVII Weekend Recap

I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend and a not-so-terrible Monday!

On Friday night K and I went on a dinner date which is our favorite thing to do on a Friday. I had a pretty Berry Mojito to unwind after a long work week.

On Saturday we picked up our weekend guests from the airport and caught up at home for a few hours. Then we all headed out for a fun night out on the town.

 We went to Universal's City Walk and hopped around to all the bars which each have a different theme of music - Reggae, a Dance Club, a Karaoke bar, an Irish Dueling Piano bar and lots more. It was truly one of the funnest nights I've had in a while!

On Sunday morning, we drove out to the coast to drop our guests off at the Cruise ship port since they were leaving for the Bahamas. We had lunch with them at a local beach restaurant/bar and then said our goodbyes.

We headed back to town for a friend's Superbowl party on Sunday night. Everyone brought a different dish and some drinks and we even had some cake to celebrate a friend's birthday.
Another fabulous weekend with good friends!

It's February already...That's kinda crazy!
