Tasty-Buzzfeed Recipes

Have you guys seen these on Facebook?! They are all over my newsfeed through out the week and I spotted a shrimp stir fry on Tuesday, so I came home and made it after work. I was so happy to have all the ingredients and it was so easy to make! It was also delicious ๐Ÿ™‚ I will be pinning more of my favorites to try on my Recipes Pinterest Board you can follow here. Leave a comment below if you have any favorites!


 

Paddle Board Yoga

When my best friend asked me to join her for paddle board yoga this week I will admit that I was not looking forward to it. I’m not the biggest fan of yoga classes. I like to go my own pace with videos at home and usually only last 20 mins. However I am a big believer in trying new things because the feeling you get afterwards is usually worth it. That was the case here! I loved it ๐Ÿ™‚ I think being on a paddle board made yoga more fun for me and it was my first time on a paddle board. I might be gaining a new hobby ๐Ÿ™‚ The yoga itself wasn’t too hard and I loved my instructor. Plusย we had gorgeous weather and it was so peaceful to be on top of the lily pads. I highly recommend looking for a SUP class if you live near any body of water ๐Ÿ™‚

Fourth of July Party Planning

I think every year I get more invested into the details for Fourth of July parties my family throws. I went a little crazy at Target, Amazon and everywhere in between but I’m so excited to make this sangria, Mix & Match Mama’sย triffle and decorate everything in red, white and blue. I also love fireworks, they are one of my favorite things in life ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll have pictures next week!

 

Jojo’s Dresses

I had serious dress envy this week while watching The Bachelorette, I mean come on! Jojo looked great in both her red and blue (was that on purpose bachelorette stylist?? ;-)) dresses from the 2 on 1 date and the rose ceremony. At this point, like I’ve said earlier, I think I’m watching the season just for her overall looks each date.

Costa Rica/What’s Up Wednesday

I had two fun posts this week that I had a good time writing and reminiscing about ๐Ÿ™‚ You can find the one on Tamarindo, Costa Ricaย hereย , if you ever plan on visiting there it’s 3 reasons I would definitely consider it! My What’s up Wednesday post isย hereย where I talk about everything going on in my life right now!

 

I hope you all enjoy this fabulous weekend friends! I can’t wait to see how people celebrate on Instagram or on their blogs next week! Be safe and have fun ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy 4th of July!!!

    I am totally intrigued by paddle board yoga. But also pretty sure I would fall off. Balance just isn’t my thing! Have a great weekend!

      I was so surprised by how wide the boards were, it felt like I had enough room to relax my nerves of falling off ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for stopping by Erika!

      Thankfully our instructor was really cool and not into making us do the hard stuff. Thanks for stopping by Jess! I hope you had a great weekend too.
