Hi, friends!

It’s Friday and you know what that means: It’s time for another edition of What I’m Loving Lately! Ok, here we go… here’s what I’m loving lately!

2016 Summer Bucket List – It includes 100 things to do on the South Shore (and a bit beyond) this summer. It’s a really great round-up with tons of fun ideas!

Ramen Broccoli Slaw – Oh, yes! A healthier version of Ramen Noodles! Recipe coming to CNC soon! 🙂

17 Ways to Get Out of Your Coffee Rut – Awesome ideas, but I especially love 7, 8, and 17!

Lemon Avocado Hummus – Yummmm! This looks SO GOOD!


15 Ways to Avoid Blogger Burnout – Holy hell, this post spoke to me in so many ways.

Finally setting up appointments to get estimates to re-do our master closet – Finally! Our summer project most likely turned into a fall project, but it’s finally happening!

Honey Nut Cheerios – Truthfully, I never understood the obsession with Honey Nut Cheerios until recently, but now I can’t get enough of them in my life. I like them with milk and banana slices, mixed with dark chocolate as an evening treat, or covered in Vanilla Cake Batter Coconut Butter.


Spring Roll Chicken Salad – This looks so healthy and delicious!


The kindness of strangers – Ok, this is such a small thing, but it really made my day. Earlier this week, I was leaving The Coffee Shack with Quinn, got distracted, and left my iced coffee on the top on my car. As I started to drive away, two men jumped out of their truck and started waving their hands at me. At first, I was kind of freaked out, thinking I was about to hit something as I backed up, but then one of them pointed to the iced coffee on the top of my car. Ahh, yes, then I remembered. I got out of my car, grabbed my coffee, and thanked them for letting me know. One of the guys replied: “I didn’t want losing it (the iced coffee) to ruin your day.” It was so nice and definitely made me smile.

17 Pictures Of Bill Clinton Realizing That Balloons Exist – So funny!

The never-ending concealer – Guys, this is the SAME tube of concealer that I blogged about in December 2012. I know it’s gross, but this stuff just lasts forever and ever. And it’s seriously THE BEST concealer. I actually bought a new tube a few months ago, thinking I was about to run out, but this one is still kicking! FYI: I use the “light” shade.

Candied Pecan Chex Mix – I made this recipe a few times over the holidays, and it was always a big hit. I have a family reunion tomorrow, so I’m going to make a huge batch to bring with me. I mean, everyone loves Chex Mix, right!?!

CVS/pharmacy send offers to card – Any one else take advantage of CVS/pharmacy’s “send offers to card” coupons? I get them in my email inbox, but you can also download the CVS Pharmacy app to send coupons and deals right to your ExtraCare card. For instance, just the other day, I had a discount offer for 25% off a purchase that I sent right to my ExtraCare card. I ended up going to CVS a couple of days later and kind of forgetting about the coupon, but the employee ringing me up received a register prompt and asked me if I wanted to use my coupon. Sweet! I saved 25% off my entire order and it was so easy!


The Very Best Sardine Salad I keep saying that I am going to eat sardines and this salad might just be the catalyst. My plan: Make this salad for happy hour later today and eat it along side of a glass of wine! 🙂

Trader Joe’s Microwavable Mac & Cheese Qman loves this stuff and we love it because the ingredients aren’t scary and we don’t waste food since the small portions are perfect for a toddler. We used to make Quinn regular sized boxes of mac & cheese, but he’d only eat a small part of it and we’d usually end up wasting some of it, so these smaller packages are great.


Why I’m voting for Trump and you should too – This made me laugh!
