Capturing Memories on the Verde Canyon Railroad

I have written about collecting memories previously.  I have been saving money in my budget so we can really get out and live life.  Going on adventures is definitely much more fun than sitting on the couch or buying shoes (okay... that may be going in a biiiiittt far).  However, it's definitely much more fun to get out of the house and really enjoying what life has to offer.

I have lived in Arizona for 18 years and have never REALLY explored the state.  Nope, I haven't even been to the Grand Canyon.  Crazy, right? 

The state has so many amazing things to offer.  From Tombstone, to the Grand Canyon, to amazing natural wonders, to Ghost Towns (that are rather lively for being dead...), Pre-Columbian era Indian Ruins and many, many more.

Recipe: Chicken Avocado Ranch Wraps

I love having a winning weekend.  Went out of town for a day, spent time in a really awesome ghost town (Oh yes, I shall be sharing more about it later this week), rode a train, made some AWESOME chicken, and then made some these fabulous chicken avocado ranch wraps.

Because my child loves to torment me...

Recipe: Honey Lime Chili Chicken

Recipe: Honey Lime Chili Chicken

Have you ever made something that came out so amazing and you wanted to share it with the world?

This recipe is one of those recipes.

For Memorial Day weekend, my sister, Em and I took a bit of a local adventure in which we went to the mountains. We rode a train into the Verde Canyon, then went to an awesome ghost town and ate. It was a killer day but it was long. I also really felt my age.  I feel like I have been nursing a hangover for two days! Ha. I had to recuperate after such a long day and I just didn't feel like cooking but I wanted grilled chicken.  I wanted grilled chicken but I don't have a grill at my apartment (whenever we grill, I go to my sister's). Also, I didn't want to have to babysit anything on a grill pan.


I made a hybrid recipe.  A hybrid slow cooker/grilled chicken.

I absolutely love simple recipes.

I really, REALLY love simple COMFORT recipes.

One of my favorites is rice pudding.  It's so simple, creamy and delicious.  It's one that everybody has essentially the same recipe but yet each is so different.

Maybe you bake it. Maybe you make it on the stove.  Maybe you use cinnamon, raisins or like me, top with bananas.

This is my #BeautyStory. What is yours?

We all have a beauty story.  

Some of us have women in our lives who inspired us.  Maybe mom's morning makeup routine, big sister's hairstyles or an aunt's nightly beauty masks.  

For me, I was surrounded by women who I wanted to be like.  

They weren't supermodels.  They didn't have much money.  They worked hard and worked with their hands. 

My mother was low maintenance.  She wore moisturizer, a light foundation, blush and she always picked the perfect lipstick that really brought out her beauty.

My grandmother who volunteered at the senior center and she was always so polished.  She wore her skin cream, a little rouge, lipstick and pretty earrings.

Weekend In Photos: Just a little bit of pretties

This past weekend, we had quite a bit of running around to do.

Since chores are boring, why not do something fun, right?

Ulta was having a master makeup class with Tarte cosmetics and I was there to get an eyebrow waxing.
