Happy Friday Everyone!!

Today I am sharing a few "snapshots" of my week. Between, working with 3 and 4 year olds, to enjoying warm walks and bbqs, I have had a busy week.
Here's a Glimpse Into My Week!


This week I subbed in a Pre-K Classroom and it's one I have been in before and I just love this age. This week we were learning all about Dinosaurs. Here is one of our centers that included fun puzzles and books.

Now these were fun! We used play dough and toy dinosaurs to make eggs. They stuffed some toy dinosaurs in the play dough, made a ball and placed it on some grass. We are letting it harden over the weekend and then they can crack it open. They enjoyed it a lot! 

This week was really nice, perfect for walking. This was a shot of a little side road that I take on my walks in my neighborhood. 

This cute little thing is the house that my in-laws placed on their land. We spent our Memorial Day here and we had a huge BBQ! It was so nice and peaceful up there away fr…
Share-A-Chef and Momfessionals Recipe Club

Hello Everyone!!! Happy Hump Day!  Today is usually my Share-A-Chef day which I will be doing, but I will also be joining Andrea and sharing a recipie I  have been cookin' in my kitchen. The chef I am talking about this week is Giada De Laurentiis. She is Italian-born American chef, writer, and television personality. She is also the host of "Giada At Home", a program on the Food Network Channel. Her recipe style is unique, elegant, and easy to create. I have been trying to cook more and more of her recipes because I need to try new things in the kitchen. One of my favorites is what I will be showing you this week, it her Parmesan-Crusted Pork Chops. This one I have made numerous times and it is DELICIOUS!! So, I hope you guys check out Giada and join Andrea and I in sharing what your cookin' up in your kitchen.
Talk to you soon,

My Go-To Hair Products
Hello Everyone! I am linking up with Andrea and my sister Lisa to discuss our favorite hair products. I have somewhat long hair so I tend to go straight for the top knot or the pony tails. Then their are times that I love to have some bounce to my hair so I add some curls and then I need add a straightener to the mix. I guess it just depends on the day! So here is a peak into what all goes into my hair routine!
1. Dove Advanced Hair Shampoo and Conditioner
This has been my go to for awhile now. I have had so many issues with my hair looking greasy, being too tangly and just not looking healthy. Then I discovered this lovely duo! It is AMAZING! My hair looks and feels wonderful, it has a great shine too it and it is pretty manageable. This girl isn't go back!

2. TRESemme Heating Spray
This product is a MUST HAVE when using a curling iron, hair dryer and a straightener. It protects my hair from all the heat damage that I would be getting if I didn't use s…
Hello Everyone!
I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day Weekend! It was nice to spend time with family, away from my phone, and just be grateful to all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms!

1. HATS! There is definitely a need for hats in the summer, for cuteness with many outfits, but most importantly for your protection! Keep a hat with you always, and now there are so many kinds to choose one! Have fun and be creative with it!

2. Crossbody Bags! I love these types of bags for the summer because they are so easy to just put on and go on your way. I have found that I use these a lot in the summer because we do a lot of garage sales which requires free hands. It is also great for outlet shopping! They are …

Incredible Military Homecoming

Hello Everyone!

I am here again with my Friday Favorites! Actually, yesterday was my Friday because schools are closed for a 4 Day weekend because of Memorial Day, which I couldn't love more! So this week's favorites will be a little bit of everything, sort of random things, if you will! Let me know what you are loving this week!

Here We Go!!



1. With it being Memorial Day Weekend I had to share one of my favorite homecoming stories in honor of all the troops that are serving, have served and those who lost their lives serving!



2. My Favorite Photo of the Week had to be Ms. Jennifer Love Hewitt in her gorgeous pregnancy glow! This picture truly makes me envious of being pregnant and I just hope and pray it happens for us one day! She looks stunning!


3. I have been loving the Doll 10 Highlighter in Champagne. I actually received this in an Ipsy bag and I just love it. I have been using it a lot this week and it just gives you such a natural highlight without being glittery, o…

Share-A-Chef
Happy Hump Day Everyone! I am coming at you with another great chef! I actually found out about this one from my sister, Lisa. She has an amazing lifestyle blog that offers great recipes, hauls, and just fun family stuff that everyone could relate to! Please go check her it out, you can find her blog here. This weeks chef is "The Pioneer Woman",  aka Ree Drummond, if you don't know about her, google her, she is amazing. I love her because she is down to earth and she creates recipes that the common person can create. They are easy, fun, inexpensive, and most importantly DELICIOUS! When I went to decided what  recipe to share I had a difficult time, they are all so good, but in the end  I went with the "Chicken Bacon Ranch Panini"! This is easy to create and the taste is phenomenal!
I hope you all enjoy this recipe and let me know what your favorite things to make are!

As soon as the warmer weather arrives the first thing I grab in the makeup department is my CoverGirl BB Cream. It's a great foundation to use to transition into summer.  The SPF is higher  and I feel you have more overall coverage with a BB cream in the summertime. You can use  any BB cream that fits you, but I have been using the CoverGirl one in shade 805, fair-light.

Another thing that I LOVE to do in the summer time is use nail polishes that are fun, colorful, flirty, and girly!! Essie has me covered with their summer collections. They are all PERFECT!
