Liebster Award (2nd time!)


I got nominated a second time by Shawna from The Modern Musings!

How it works!

Newer bloggers with less than 200 followers get nominated! You link back to the person who nominated you and answer 10 questions! Then you go ahead and nominate 11 new bloggers and ask them 10 new questions!

Here are the Questions Shawna sent!

  • Are you living the life you wanted? Yes or no, and why/how did you get there?

Almost! While I have a good job, I’m currently not crazy about my location. So I’m saving up my pennies to get myself to a much warmer climate for a fresh start and hopefully a job I’m a little bit more excited for. It took me about 10 years to get where I am but now I’m on a much better path and am excited for the future!

  • When you scroll through Twitter/Blog Lovin or any other type of social media for blogs, what types of blog posts jump out at you the most? What topics do you like to read over and over?

Usually I check recipe posts, great blogging tips and occassionally fashion posts if I see a cute dress I like!

  • Do you like more serious or humorous blogs? Or both??

I read a combo of both, but if its all serious I probably won’t come back as often.

  • You are given $5,000 bucks you HAVE to spend on yourself somehow. Where would you go/what would you do/buy?

I would move my butt to Texas in a heartbeat! $5000 would get me an apartment, some furniture and keep me afloat until I could find a good job!

  • What actor strikes your fancy currently? And why?

I’m always a fan of Johnny Depp. He’s a great character actor.

  • If you could live anywhere where would it be and why?

If I had all the money in the world I’d probably live in London or the South of France. But right now I’m heading to Austin!

  • You are in a karaoke bar. You MUST sing…what is your go to song?

None! I don’t sing karaoke.

  • What is the ONE thing your dream home MUST have?

Definitely a walk in closet.

  • First concert you ever went to?

I think LFO…

  • Biggest regret(ooo deep question).

Quitting dance. And not taking community college classes before I started college.

  • Why do you blog?

Its fun! And has given me an opportunity to hold myself accountable for things, which is great for my finances. It also has been helping me get out there and be more social.


So here are my 10 questions!

  1. What is your ideal Saturday?
  2. If you had to eat one food for the rest of your life what would it be?
  3. What’s the best piece of advice someone has ever given you?
  4. Top 5 places you want to visit?
  5. What goals do you have for your blog?
  6. What is your theme song?
  7. What’s your best tip for a blogger just starting out?
  8. Most romantic thing someone has done for you?
  9. Have you been able to keep up with any New Years Resolutions?
  10. If you could do any job what would it be?

Me, Myself and a bottle of Handsome Devil, The Single Lady V-day!

I was not going to do a valentine’s day post. In fact even thinking about being all romantic and gooey right now is absolutely irritating. Especially when you’ve just experienced heart break. But while everyone is out with their dates I will be stayin in with my three very special dates! Myself, and my two pups (and also maybe this Handsome Devil Malbec!)! I love a good soak in the tub, I only wish I had this tub below because maybe then I would fit in it. Not possible so I make due with the tiny tub I have feet sticking out over the edge and all. I usually move my laptop into the bathroom, throw on my favorite show, grab a glass of wine (and a bottle of water) and get my relaxin on! I’ve been itching to try some Bath Bombs and Bubble Bombs from Lush so this just may be the perfect time to give them a whirl!
Got any big plans for Valentines day? Stayin in ? or Headin out?
Single Ladies Valentines Day Date!

Creamy Zucchini Noodles and Chicken Sausage

I tried my hand at Zucchini Chips and I gotta say, every time I made them I burned them…no matter how much I adjusted the thickness. But I still wanted to figure out a way to cook with Zucchini as they’re super low in calories, filled with folate, potassium and vitamin A. I don’t eat bananas so I gotta get that potassium elsewhere! Plus they’re pretty tasty. Zucchini’s are another food that I had never tried before this year! Thanks to this blog I’ve had the opportunity to try so many foods I had not yet tried.

When my sister and her hubby landed in Chicago for Christmas we had to make a quick stop so they could get a white elephant gift for our family Christmas party. What did they pick up? A Veggetti! Oooooo yaaaaaa! We got it all ready to go and headed to the car. The next day when we were wrapping up gifts, my sister realized we didn’t have the Veggetti. It wasn’t in my car, wasn’t in my parents house (luckily my mom got extras for the white elephant exchange). When I got home, lo and behold! There was the Veggetti sitting on my coffee table! YAY! It was quite funny because at my office white elephant party we also had a Veggetti going around and it was THE item to get. We all wanted it! I was going to buy one but thanks to my sister and her hubby I didn’t need to! (she wasn’t too pleased, she wants one now too!)

So I put my Veggetti to good use! It’s pretty easy to use, not super terrible to clean (unlike a cheese grater) and works well to create some tasty Zucchini Noodles!!!

So I whipped up a SUPER tasty creamy zucchini “pasta” dish filled with veggies, chicken sausauge and so much cheese. I just love cheese.
