Mother's Day

I am going to be honest and brag....my mom...she is HOTT and even better she is the best mom in the entire universe! If I become half the mother she has been to me I am totally fine with it!  (NO I AM NOT PREGGERS)  My mom and I share such a special relationship. She is my mom, my sister and my very best friend! I'm so pumped that I have her genes too...I mean Dave is in luck if I look like her in the future :)

These Are A Few of My Favorite Things....

Just a little post about some of my favorite things lately!




This pretty box showed up on my desk yesterday!  I ordered the Black Matte ones from Nordstrom...could be the only time I wished it would rain!



I know I can't believe it either but I actually have peonies growing in my yard that I planted all by myself!  I already cut them and have them in a vase in the house just in case this NEVER happens again!

Yes it is another shopping website that Jordon (Love Always, Nancy J) found! It has FREE SHIPPING! Enjoy ladies! 



I made these amazing Skinny "Bang Bang" Shrimp Tacos for dinner the other night with mexi rice and mashed cauliflower. OMG so good and so not bad for you!  I saw the recipe on one of my favorite sites, Skinny Taste. Below is their recipe.  I added some garlic powder and onion powder to the corn starch as well.  I also served them on Corn Tortillas with broccoli slaw instead of cabbage and scallions.  


For the Shrimp:
  • 1 lb large shrimp, shelled and deveined (weight after peeled)
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 3 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 1 cup shredded purple cabbage
  • 4 tbsp scallions, chopped

Directions:

In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, Thai sweet chili sauce and Sriracha. Set aside.
Combine lettuce and cabbage and divide between four plates. Set aside. 

Coat shrimp with cornstarch, mixing well with your hands.


Heat a large skillet or wok on high heat, when hot add oil. When oil is hot add the shrimp to hot pan and cook tossing a few times until cooked through, about 3 minutes.Remove from pan and combine with the sauce coating well.


Happy Thursday!

Self-Promoted Post :)

Dave and I are movie stars! HAHA  Well video stars I guess!  Our wedding was used for Krystal Keith's first music video, "Daddy Dance With Me".  Let me say this is so awesome and if you are a girl that has shared or is going to share a "father-daughter dance" you are so going to cry when you see this video.  I mean I am a tad bit biased because it is my dad and I but this song is super touching.  Yes, Krystal is Toby's daughter (as in Toby Keith) and I have known her for a while now.  She was actually an intern here and let me up the elevator for my job interview back in 2007. She has become a very dear dear friend of mine and I am honored to be a part of this video!  Oh and did I mention she can sing???  She has a new EP on iTunes that you can listen to here.




By the way the video has been viewed over 660,000 times!! That is CRAZY! So check it out and check her out!
