My very random post!

Hey guys,

Sorry for my disappearing act lately! I’ve been super busy, but have still been reading all your blogs, just no commenting!!


Ok, this is my super random post!  Lots of fun stuff… with some wedding details at the end!! :)

Ok… after my snack post a few people asked me how to oven pop popcorn!!


Take some oil of choice – about a table spoon and put it in a pot (with a tight fitting lid)

I prefer coconut oil


Drop in 3 kernels of popcorn


Cover until all 3 pop!!

Once all 3 have popped then put in about 1/4 cup of kernels per person.


Keep the heat around medium… and let the sizzle begin!

Give the pot a little shake every once in awhile!! (to keep the kernels from burning!)

Then… beautiful popcorn!!


Then top with whatever you like!!


Next topic!  What’s been on my plate the last few days!

Kale salad! YUMMY!! With Amie’s Goddess Dressing



Juice… lots of juice



Yesterday some cupcakes were made for work!  I may have tested them!


Some more salad with warm roasted cauliflower and broccoli!


Homemade chicken fingers, fries and MORE roasted broccoli and cauliflower! (and a shot glass of sweet chilli sauce)


Of course there was lots more eaten… but nothing worth documenting!! :)



So we are officially staying at the RIU Emerald Bay, Mazatlan


SO excited!! We’ve had some RSVPs coming in, which makes it super exciting!! I can’t wait for it!!

I’ve found some fun excursions too…  very close to a bloggers heart!   Salsa and Salsa – learn to make authentic Mexican margaritas, 6 different salsas, guacamole and then spend the afternoon doing salsa lessons!  YES!!  So fun.  It got rated as one of the best excursions in Mazatlan, and I have been emailing the “dancing chefs” and they sound like so much fun!

This is all the wedding gossip as of now! I still haven’t been dress shopping, but soon!!


Hope you are all doing wonderful!!

Keep your eyes open for a coconuty, peanut buttery giveaway, very soon!
