Good morning!!

I can’t believe I haven’t mentioned this until now, but I’m leaving for Cabo San Lucas tomorrow morning to visit the Esperanza Resort.


I was invited along with some other media people for a three-day, two-night, all-expenses paid trip. Incredible.


The Esperanza Resort was awarded #1 resort, #1 spa, and #1 service by Travel & Leisure in 2010, so I am definitely looking forward to my time there and seeing what it is all about.


And, of course, I’ll be sure to give you guys a full recap once I return home.


Oh my gosh, I can’t wait to be there!


Here are some pics from yesterday (clockwise from top left):


  • Our snowy walkway. It snowed overnight! Gah! I’m not ready for winter.
  • Iced almond milk latte with a splash of eggnog. Mmm! So creamy, so delicious! I made it with my new Maestria from Nespresso. That little machine is awesome!
  • Low-calorie, gluten-free brownie with a smear of almond butter on top. The recipe will be on CNC sometime in January. I recently signed on as a spokesperson for the Almond Board of California, and one of my responsibilities is creating almond recipes. I’m so excited about this new gig, and I can’t wait to share my almond creations with you!
  • Leftover Irish nachos. Oh my goodness, they were just as amazing reheated. I definitely want to recreate this recipe at home!

Powerful Beautiful Tees

A few weeks ago, a group of us bloggers (Caitlin, Kath, Emily, Meghann, Theodora, Monica, Gina, Julie, Anne, Janae and I) came together to do something good this holiday season. We created an inspirational t-shirt that carries a wonderful message to all women:

powerful beautiful t-shirt

One-hundred percent of the earned profits from our sales will be donated to the Ladies Empowerment and Action Program {LEAP}, which works to help incarcerated women make positive life changes through entrepreneurship training, education, and mentorship.

The cost of each t-shirt is $18, and it comes in two styles. We hope you’ll purchase a shirt for yourself, girlfriends, sisters, mothers, and anyone else who would appreciate this message and would like to support an amazing women’s cause!

Question of the Day

Would you rather take a warm, tropical vacation or a more mild-temperature/cold/snowy vacation?
