Crockpot Sunday: Hot & Sour Cabbage Soup

Bringing back Crockpot Sunday since winter has settled in here at the beach (read: until tomorrow or Tuesday when it returns to 60's).  I wanted to try a new recipe this week.  Found THIS gem and so excited to eat it tonight!  Happy Sunday, y'all!

Being Vulnerable!

A few months back, I started watching Ted Talks on my new Apple TV (which by the way I LOVE)! I fell in love with Brene Brown's Ted Talks, specifically THIS ONE!  And as I look at 2016, one of my biggest goals (because I don't call them New Year's Resolutions) is to be more vulnerable!

As humans, being vulnerable isn't always easy.  We all deal with the roller coaster called life differently.  Being vulnerable is not how most of us live our daily lives.  Yet, for me, when I am the best and truest version of myself and 100% vulnerable...I get the best from those in my life, whether my family, friends or clients.  It's true - Every. Single. Time.

Vulnerability is birthplace of innovation, creativity and change!  What would you do if you weren't afraid to fail? Or could get out of your own way and perceived shame?  Let's make 2016 the year where we DO these things instead of being afraid?  Deal!?!

Dear surfers

Dear surfers, I wanna be you.  This isn't a new thing.  I've been enamored with y'all since I moved here two years ago.  As I walked the beach last night, I watched y'all in a new way.  I was watching the waves, how you catch them, the size of your boards, the wetsuits you wear and your technique once you caught a wave.  So what happened next?  I went to a surf shop to look at a used surf board.

2016 goal: Get a board and wetsuit so I too can be a surfer...oh and more blogging!  I LOVE writing! More to come on surfing!

Crockpot Sunday: Chicken Noodle Soup Edition

Why hello there!  Yes, crockpot Sunday is back (as am I from not writing in a while).  As you may remember, I LOVE to use my crockpot as the weather gets cooler.  This week I tried THIS recipe. OMG, I may never ever buy canned soup again!  This was so much more flavorful and hearty!

Stay tuned for next's edition of Crockpot Sunday.  Have a great week!

Fall Looks That Have Me Swooning

Fall is approaching.  It's still warm at the beach but I have a serious problem with fall and winter clothes.  I love spring, summer and sundresses so my summer wardrobe rocks (in my opinion).  But, I definitely need to spruce up my fall and winter wardrobe.  I am making a SERIOUS effort this year to work on my fall wardrobe with a few great pieces.  

Here's what I found that I am swooning over:

1) A Classic Blazer 

2) Fun Cargo Pants
 3) Camo jacket
 4) Comfy sweater
 5) Moto leather jacket (which I already have)

6) Denim shirt dress

What's on your fall wardrobe list?  Now the big trick will be to see if I can find things like this at some of my favorite discount stores.
