Healthy Eats: Burrito Bowl

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

I am a huge fan of Chipotle, Moes, and Willies. Really, if it is mexican food, you can bet your bottom dollar I will eat LOADS of it. However, the only one who is semi weight watchers friendly for my lifestyle would be Chipotle, and those $8.00 burrito bowls add up quick! So, I decided to figure out a way to make my own burrito bowl with very low points. So here's the burrito bowl that I think makes a great lunch or even great dinner.

* I know it's not the prettiest picture in all the land but it's absolutely delicious 
What you'll need: 
  • Brown rice - 1/4 of a cup dry [4 points]
  • Chicken cutlets - 4 ounces (or one cutlet) [2 points]
  • Cajun seasoning - however much you want  [0 points]
  • Garlic salt - however much you want [0 points]
  • Black beans - 1/4 of a cup [1 point]
  • Zucchini - however much you want [0 points]
  • Squash - however much you want [0 points]
  • Yellow tomato - however much you want [0 points]
  • Any form of hot sauce [0 points]
  • Pam olive oil spray [0 points]
  •  Reduced fat Kraft cheddar cheese - 1/4 of a cup [2 points]
What you'll do: 
  • Cook the serving size of rice in a pot (you can't mess this part up) 
  • Cube the zucchini, squash, and tomato and place into the lightly coated pam pan. 
  • After browning the vegetables for put the hot sauce on them and finish cooking 
  •  Cube up chicken and put cajun seasoning and garlic salt on the chicken and place in pan and cook on each side for 3 mins 
  • Measure out your black beans and warm them in the microwave. 
  • Assemble the goodness and eat it all with joy and happiness!
Do you have any other fun healthy quick recipes for me to try?

Surprise! I am engaged!

Monday, March 30, 2015

So you can chalk it up to the fact that I am a horrible blogger that I am just now writing this post! Let's just say, getting engaged takes you through a whirl wind of events. Second off, the day after you get engaged people automatically assume that you have a date set they think I am super woman or something? Anyways, it was quite possibly the best day of my life. Bear had to try to keep it all a secret because I can be a bit of a snoop and I am also really good at figuring out anything if you give me just one clue (seriously if connecting the dots was an Olympic event, I'd win.)
So, now you're probably wondering how he did it? Well it's time for a story, so take an afternoon break with a cup of coffee and enjoy!

So Bear was very clever he made it so that we went through our daily Saturday motions. We went to Weight Watchers, we weighed in, we went to tin lizzies and then we went to Piedmont Park to play magic. (if you don't know it's a card game bear and I play). So we ate our food and did normal bear things. And then we were getting ready to play and David told me he made me a new deck...but little did I know that he was actually preparing to propose!

While these are digital cards, David actually hand made me my very own proxy (fake) Magic Cards. I had no idea what was going on until he had pulled out the proposal card. Then It was all giggles, tears and "right nows". I was so surprised that all I kept saying is "right now" "really!? right now?!?!". (In case you were wondering this is the order that he presented the cards to me!)

He got down on one knee and presented the ring to me in a gorgeous teal card box with a homemade ring holder! It was absolutely priceless and amazing. I felt like I was on top of the world! 

It was such a surprise because David got a surprise photographer and I had no idea who he was or what he was doing. I honestly thought he was one of those park creepers that took pictures of the grass for fun! (they exist!) 

And of course directly after some photos and hugs, we took to our phones and posted to facebook, because, did your engagement ever happen if you didn't Instagram/Facebook it?!

But seriously, I am the luckiest girl in the world to have found my soul-bear to conquer the world with. I can't put into words how amazing it feels to know that I have someone to tackle life with! 

Keep Calm and Carry On! 

Now Loving: The Spring Edition

Friday, March 20, 2015

With spring right around the corner I am obsessing over tank tops and flip flops. Oh and anything that looks like spring I put on my wish list for later!
March was a pretty relaxed month for me (april is finals and all larger projects due month, so lord save me). Anyways, I want to share with ya'll some of my latest obsessions.

I don't know about you but I adore a cute spring nail color and Essie came out with a rocking spring color (that also goes with my wedding day color pallet). This bastise dry shampoo is also a great addition to my hair regimen, I don't know about you but my hair behaves ten times better when I don't was it every day! Also I joined the Ray Bans club, at first I thought they looked weird on my face however I am now digging them and love the way they look on my face!

Also, because I adore you all so much I made a Spotify playlist (but Spotify is being mean and took away the embedded HTML option so I am sorry but you have to click this link to listen to my latest obsessions.

I am also excited (and nervous) about the Lilly Pulitzer/Target collaboration. I am excited because the bathing suits look absolutely awesome and so do the plazzo pants. I am grabbing both on April 19th when the collection comes out!

What are you currently loving?

Currently Listening To

Monday, March 2, 2015

So Spotify does this thing that I adore on Tuesdays called New Music Tuesday, so today I thought I would do New Music Monday!!
So I want you guys to enjoy my currently listening to playlist. It's a mixture of everything so there are tunes to dance to, tunes to mellow out to, and tunes to be productive to. So put in some ear buds, or blast it in your house! I hope you enjoy!

Do you have any favorites?? Also that Taylor Swift remix is pretty much the bomb.
