I mean... Does the day really matter?

Friday, July 8, 2016

So many people I know.:

This just reminded me of most of the men in my life.

So it's Friday again. To me, at this particular time, just another day. So goes week one of not getting up and going to a job. I say not going to a job because I did actually do some work, just housework. Not a ton of progress was made because my kids are at the beach and I took the opportunity to be a bit of a lazy slob. I slept in every day, no alarms, no worries. I worked out, I ate breakfast for lunch, I drank wine at 4 o'clock... it was a glorious week. Zero fucks. I even had a date! Remember that? On Tuesday I met a guy from Bumble for coffee and, well, zero chemistry was felt on my part and guessing on his too since I haven't heard from him since the obligatory thank you text. I liked it though, a coffee date is really quite perfect in that you waste the minimal amount of time and/or precious evening hours. This is going to be my new thing, the coffee date.

But since it is Friday and I am here, how about 5 things with the Oh Hey ladies Karli and Amy? Go...


Not only is my tattoo artist young beautiful and insanely talented she also has ridicuously long lashes. I hate her. I kid but she does use this so of course I bought it and I love it! Better Than Sex Mascara from Too Faced did not disappoint. So I am back on the expensive mascara train, mine need serious help. Try it!


So I am back on my mostly Paleo-ish Whole30 eating plan because why not do it while I have time to cook and experiment in the kitchen. I am a big fan of Portobello mushrooms in lieu of buns or just in general on the grill in the summertime. This pin for Enchilada Stuffed Grilled Portobello Mushrooms spoke to me! I can't wait to try it this week!

These Enchilada Stuffed Grilled Portobello Mushrooms are an easy vegetarian dinner recipe that is ready in under 25 minutes!


I am a huge Blake Shelton fan and I especially love it when artists write songs about their life experiences. It makes them so much more relatable. Given his recent divorce from Miranda I just have to love this song. Who knows what really happened but I am Team Blake, never really got a great vibe from her as a personality. Either way... great tune!


I made Pina Coladas last weekend and now I am kind of obsessed. It's been so hot here and they are just such a cool, frosty treat. Don't buy the mix, make your own. Get out your big fancy blenders out this weekend! The perfect Pina Colada:

1 part white Rum
3 parts Pineapple Juice
1 part Coco Lopez (or other coconut cream) 

I use the Coco Lopez can as the measure for the "part". Fill up your blender with about half ice and pour everything on top of that. Blend it then put your face in it. Cheers!


My kids will return from the beach this weekend. On my immediate agenda is figuring out where I can ship them off to next.... hmmmmm

Yup..not enough money in the world for me to be a teacher:

Happy Friday!


  1. I love stuffed mushrooms. Those look really good.

    Ha I'm team Miranda...well in reality I'm not actually team either but if it comes down to it I'm team her. Mostly because I've liked her more as an artist than him for forever. Also because she actually writes her own songs & he cheated on his first wife.

  2. coffee dates were a must when i realized that dinners or movies just wouldn't's easy, cheap and you can make an escape if things go south.

  3. I need to go back to my mostly paleo ways, it us hard when you stray!!! I love Blake Shelton too, he puts out hit after hit in my book. That mascara really is amazing. Hope you have a great weekend!

  4. That kids/migraine theme made me LOL. I've been looking for a good mascara. May have to give that one a try.

  5. OMG - that pina colada recipe is awesome - they are so good on a hot day . . . I'm going to do this instead of the mix! Saw your snaps on the mushrooms - looked amazing! And carry on with the coffee dates - brilliant! Plus they make for interesting stories!
