Shopping at Good To Be!




Hi All!! Hope you've had a great week!  Today I want to talk a bit about Instagram.  I love instagram, love that its mainly about sharing life via pictures.  I love taking pictures, and I actually feel that I missed my calling.  I should have studied to become a photographer, but anyway, this is why I enjoy using Instagram so much!

A new reason I love Instagram is discovering small shops from all over the country.  I really do enjoy shopping-it is my therapy :)  Recently, I've enjoyed shopping from smaller shops that I've discovered in Instagram.  YouTube also helps, as it did with this particular shop.  I've been following AlexandMichael on youtube and instagram for over a year now, and when they announced that they were opening up an online shop, I was very curious.  Curious to see if there would actually be items that I'd like and could afford - LOL.

My first purchase was right before my Cancun vacation and it was this beautiful, embroided cover up, The Seaside CoverUp.  I'm also very, very happy it arrived right before I left so I was able to use it on our trip.

The packaging was very cute!!



The cover up was absolutely beautiful!




I'm 5'2" and got it in the S/M size. It fit perfectly! 



The colors matched all of my bathing suits too - I really loved this cover up!

Since this purchase, I have bought from them on 2 other occasions.  Right after we returned from Cancun, I ordered the Eva Cream Sweater and the Paris Gray Cami.  My most recent order was the Emma White Top and the Nova Peach Jacket.  I can't wait for this new order to come in!

So far, everything I have purchased has been shipped fast, arrived with no problems, reasonably priced, good quality and has fit perfectly.  

I highly recommend for you to check out Good To Be.  The choices of clothing are very cute, I really do think there is something for everyone.

What are some of your favorite small business online shops?

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.














After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.


New Week~New Program

Here we go!!  I took a week off to regroup and decide what to do next.  I really have to say that having Beach Body on Demand is the BEST!!!

There are so many programs and nutrition plans to follow.  So since I recently completed Transform 20, I was thinking of doing it again, but I've been curious about 80 Day Obsession for quite some time.  I haven't attempted this program because at first, I felt it wasn't for me.  The workouts are longer than I'm used to and the timed nutrition is challenging for me, but I finally let curiosity get the best of me.  I'm going to give it a shot!

I started Sunday with my meal prep!  I was a bit overwhelmed at first, but I followed the sample nutrition plan and was able to get my shopping list and meals put together.



So for my first week, I have every meal planned out.  Not prepared, since I'd rather make my eggs for breakfast fresh each morning.  Most of my meals have been prepped!

My days are set to begin at 4:30AM with my sh…
