Happy Monday, everyone!
I’m extra happy today, because my sweet mom is in town visiting! She arrived last week and it’s been go go go since she landed. We’ve gotten in some shopping, some beach time and just general hanging out, which is honestly my favorite part of having her here. It’s crazy what some good quality time with your parents can do for your soul.
We enjoyed some blackened shrimp tacos at home on Friday and homemade margaritas using the jalapeño tequila I made (recipe coming soon!) – both were SO GOOD!
In all of her trips to Hawaii, my mom said she had never seen Waimea Bay – Dane and I were like…what?! So we parked ourselves on the sand all afternoon and when lunch came, we grabbed some shrimp plates from one of our favorite spots!
We have lots of fun activities on tap for the next few weeks, so if I’m not around the blog as much as usual – you’ll know why! Be sure you’re following along on Instagram for all the fun 🙂
And now some can’t miss pieces from the interwebs…
Kelsey’s breakdown of clean eating, how she got started and better yet – how she gets the whole family to participate! – is a must read for anyone curious about healthy eating.
Anne’s post on podcasts had me jotting down a new list of “things to download”!
Chelsea’s post on celebrating life really stood out to me and was probably one of the best things I read last week!
I love a good IKEA hack, and Living With Landyn did a pretty incredible one with bookshelves that I LOVE! Her budget is admittedly much higher than mine ever would be for such a project, but I love how it turned out!
IS anyone else addicted to those mini eggs Cadbury makes for Easter every year? I AM! Andrea over at Salty Canary took that love affair with eggs and made 5 drool-inducing desserts with them.
And on that note – I’m headed out (to probably make a dessert!)
How was your weekend?
