Friday Favorites and Five on Friday

Happy Friday! Although this is probably the first Friday in a long time in which I wish it wasn't Friday!!! I have been a little MIA from my beloved blogging world as life has gotten a little crazy and my hen Gavin's parents flew over from England and we have been vacationing with them. 

I'm happy to be linking up with Amanda 
And Christina, Darci, April and Natasha 

Congratulations to my favorite guy and love of my life on graduating from college! I am so proud of Gavin and loved celebrating his accomplishments! 

My parents and Gavin's parents met for the first time this past week in Florida. Following Gavin's graduation we drove down to my parents vacation condo to introduce all the parents and vacation together! It has been better and far more fun then I ever could have imagined! They have all hit it off amazingly and I couldn't be happier! 
The girls
The guys

We were able to take some romantic lovie sunset pictures the other night and I must say a few of them turned out pretty cute! :) 

We wanted Gavin's parents to experience American sports so we all went to a Tampa Bay Rays baseball game! I was so shocked that the field was indoors! It was a little hard to get good pics with the intense lights

Gavin and I have quite the collection of funny photos together so I decided to post a few funnies from our trip so far!

Favorite quote of the week~

We still have three days left of our trip and I hope they go by nice and slow. I love all the time I'm getting with Gavin and both sets of parents. Hope you are all having a wonderful days!!

Workin on my fitness

New workout clothes and shoes totally inspire me to get my butt in gear! Well that and the fact that it's technically always bathing suit season in the south! 

I always find myself screen shoting or saving workouts and motivational quotes. The quotes really do help sometimes. This post today has a couple quick workouts and motivation to get you going along with a healthy snack chart. If you're anything like me, snacking is the biggest problem!

A little motivation to put a pep in your step 

Now that we're motivated let's get our butts moving!

Snacking right

Happy Tuesday! Hope you tried it with me!!

What's in your makeup bag?

So my makeup bag is pretty stuffed and sometimes I can't get it to zip all the way shut. Which made me wonder, what in the world do I have in this thing?!! 

My ever so handy Vera makeup bag!

Let's start with my eyes:
Why do I have soooo many mascaras lol My answer, I need one for every situation whether it be booster, curl, volume, lengthen and extend! See there is a great reason for having so many!!
Then there's my issue with why do I have a million eye liners? My answer, they are the hardest thing to find in my bag so I need multiples. 
No need to defend my brushes they speak for themselves: two eye shadow brushes, eye liner brush, a foundation brush and two bronzed brushes
 I think I'm doing relatively well here! That wand comes in handy to cover up my stupid pimples. Two foundations depending on the season and color of my skin and of course a bronzer!
Eye shadows! Clearly I stick to all natural browns
The randoms! Primer, clear lip gloss, nail clippers and face lotion/sunscreen

Now onto my favs! The products I use all the time!

I recently got these two eyeliners in my Ipsy glam bag and I love them! The Urban Decay velvet pencil has to be the easiest eyeliner to apply! 

What's in your makeup bag?!

Deviled Avocado Eggs

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a fabulous Easter full of yummy food and making memories! This year Gavin and I spent Easter at our friends/my employers home. My contribution to our brunch was deviled avocado eggs. I came across the recipe on fb and honestly had no idea if they would be good or not. 

They were delish!! I'm an avocado lover so I had a feeling they would turn out great. The recipe was super easy too minus the peeling the eggs part. (Gavin's contribution in which he complained the whole time haha) 

What you need:
-Carton of 18 eggs
-2 avocados
-4 tsps of Lime juice
-2 tsps of Cilantro(I used a paste and it worked so well)
-3 egg yokes 
-1 tbls of minched red onion
-Dash of salt and pepper

How to:
- Boil you eggs on the stove and then peel them

-Once you have peeled your eggs cut them vertically, make sure to keep three yokes. Then place them around a tray. 

-In a small bowl mash up your avocado and egg yokes then in add your lime, cilantro, red onion and salt & pepper. 

- Fill egg egg half with a little scoop of your avocado filling. Cover with tin foil and refrigerate until you are ready to serve. 

*The lime juice keeps the avocado from going bad and turning a dark shade.
