Throwbacks Shows You Need To Watch on Netflix #StreamTeam

I have never grown out of my love affair of the 90s.  I live for the cheesy movies, TFIG shows, the dirty pop, and the crazy fashion.  It is by far one of my favorite decades.  There are so many of my favorite oldies but goodies on Netflix I thought I would share. 

Bill Nye The Science Guy on Netflix

Bill Nye The Science Guy has been one of Damian’s favorite “new”shows and it has made this mommy so proud.  He loves telling me everything he has learned from each episode.  Although, he doesn’t believe me when I till him Pluto is no longer a planet!  I wish there were still shows like this on television, but at least Netflix came to our rescue.

#BestSummerEver + Giveaway

best summer ever with family

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Banana Boat®. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

Summer is finally here!  In a football family, summer consists of one month – July.  That’s it.  So, we gotta make the most of the short amount of time we have as a family.  In order for us to have the #BestSummerEver, we need to protect ourselves from the sun.  What is a summer without fun in the sun?!  We plan on camping with family, hiking, laying by the pool with friends, and heading to So Cal or some beach time.  Spending time with our loved ones is what really matters to us.  We are having a mini-family reunion with Pat’s family at Pinecrest, and I can not wait.  It’s so important to get everyone together and spend quality time as a family.  We are going to be out in the sun a lot, but luckily Banana Boat has the perfect sun protection for all of our adventures.

7 Recipes You Need To Try

7 recipes you need to try

Some of you may not know this blog used to post a lot of recipes.  It’s something that I would really like to get into again.  I’m thinking maybe once a week or so.  Before becoming pregnant with Paxton, I was much more health conscious and lived by the 80/20 rule.  While pregnant with Paxton, my cravings took over and cake every night became my vice.  I’m really trying to get back into my 80/20 lifestyle now that I’ve made the commitment to make fitness a part of my daily routine.  I need to start feeling like “me” again.  I’m sure many of you can relate.  Here are some of my favorite recipes to serve myself and my family.

Affordable Hawaiian Style

tropical print and stripesTop // Skirt

Hi lovelies!  And welcome to all my new subscribers from my mention in The New York Times.  Today I’m sharing a super affordable, tropical summer look.  

I love the mixing of the tropical print with a striped ballet top.  I know I’m not wearing shoes, but when I did I just wore a pair of simple sandals.  Vacation is all about keeping it simple, right?

Personally, I like packing skirts and top on trips because I can mix and match them to create multiple outfits.  If I only I could work up the guts to wear the crop tops with pencil skirts that are in style.  By the time I finally get my butt in gear and get the weight off, they will be out of style.  Guaranteed.

What styles do you like rocking for summer?  Obviously, my little Polynesian heart is loving tropical prints.

Hawaii Recap – The Big Island

Aloha!  I can’t believe it’s been two weeks since Hawaii.  It’s kind of depressing.  Luckily, my hub’s football team is playing at Hawaii this season which means I will be back in a few months.  Only to support the team…on the beach…with a mai tai.  

Get ready for my photo vomit and please forgive the noise on my pictures.  The iso was too high.  Okay, I have no idea what that means.  It sounded like I did, right?
