June Shopping Haul

Hi everyone! How have you been? Excited for summer? I sure am & last month I made a few shopping trips to get myself new outfits.  Shopping is my therapy but I can’t go crazy because I do have bills to pay so I just go & get new things little by little.  Some things were purchased by hubby, so thanks to his contribution I have some new outfits to workout in.

I didn’t buy anything fancy since I really don’t need anything like that.  I just need new, comfy pieces that I can use in my everyday life. 
My first shopping trip was to Target.  I love Target & right now they have so many cute pieces!   On this trip I found this short set and this strapless one piece. 



Please ignore the mess behind me.....I loved how these outfits fit.  I was surprised because I thought the shorts would be too tight & the romper wasn’t going to look right.  I was so happy to be wrong.

A few days later I went back to target but this time I went looking for bathing suits.  I was looking for 2 piece & high waisted bottoms.  Here is what I found.


I really liked both bottoms but the tops didn’t do much for me.  Now I realize that I still have a lot of weight to lose & I'm working on that but the tops were just too tight & I refuse to buy a bigger size.  Fortunately for me, I already own tons of two piece suits that I can take a top I already own & use it with these bottoms.  Plus, what I really needed was a high waisted bottom & I found 2 that I liked.  The next day I returned the two tops, but I kept the bottoms.  

My next shopping trip wasn’t to a store.  It was online since fabletics was having a great sale, I couldn’t pass it up!  
I ordered new tights, new sports bra & this cute long sleeve yoga top. 


The sports bra or crop top is a bit tight but as I lose weight this will fit better.  I fell in love with the flow top though, it is soooo cute! 

Another sale I came across online was at the Buffbunny website.  Her clothes are so cute but can be pricey so when I saw things on sale, I jumped at the chance to get something new.


I got this black crop top & these berry colored tights.  The top wasn’t bad but the tights were tight! Now, I did order a medium because large was sold out & I can fit into a medium in some other brands so why not?  Well, they were very difficult to put on & I had terrible camel toe (TMI, but gotta be honest here). I kinda wish I would’ve looked for a large but I’ll hold onto these until I can fit in them better. 

Next shopping trip was at Forever 21! This shopping was in the store.  I found so many cute workout clothes at great prices.










The snoopy set is just for lounging around the house but the rest is workout gear.  Everything fit nicely, although once I lose more weight I’ll be happier with how it’ll look.  For now it will do & I’m even more excited about working out since I have new clothes!

Do you get excited to workout when you have new outfits?

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.


Cooking Corner: Cookbook Challenge Day 1

Hi everyone!  I'm starting April with a little challenge for myself.  You are all welcome to join if you choose.  I have a rather large collection of recipes that I've never tried and since I started to declutter my life of things I don't need, this is one area that needs help. What do I need so many cookbooks and binders of recipes for? I don't know - it just takes up space and it's another thing for me to clean.  So, I decided that if I can't find good recipes that we love, there is no point in keeping the book or recipe.  I attempted this challenge a few years ago but never followed through.  This time, I intend to stick with it.
Here's my challenge:
Pick a book a month and try some recipes.
Decide what we like and what we don't.
If I have at least 15 recipes that we like, the book stays.  If not, I'll just copy the few recipes we liked and get rid of the book.
Not sure what I'll do with the book yet.  I'll figure it out at the end of th…
