Tieks Ballet Flats at Disney World


Tieks Ballet Flats at Disney World


Disney World is our favorite place ever and we go to the parks every chance we get.
Luckily, my in-laws are members of the Disney Vacation Club and they take us along!

Fun at the parks involves a lot of walking and my daughter and I like to do it in style
wearing our Tieks.  We are huge fans of Tieks ballet flats and we wear them all of the
time. They are the most comfortable shoes that I own! You can read more about why
I am such a fan in the blog post - Are Tieks worth the price?.

Part of the fun of any Disney trip is planning what to wear.  I love wearing Disney
inspired clothing at the parks and matching my outfits with Tieks ballet flats makes it
even more fun!

A crafty friend added a Minnie Mouse pocket to this gray t-shirt, which looks great with
cardinal red Tieks.  I also got crafty and made couple of pairs of mouse ear headbands to
wear on our trip. Madison is wearing ballerina pink Tieks in this photo.

We can walk around Disney in our Tieks all day and our feet feel fine. We love how
the shoes fold in half for easy packing too!  On this trip we stayed at Disney's Saratoga
Spring Resorts.  Saratoga Springs is one of our favorites, but you can't go wrong when
you stay on Disney property.  We also love the Polynesian, Grand Floridian and the
Boardwalk!

Tieks ballet flats are so versatile! They look great with jeans, leggings, shorts, dresses
and skirts! I bet Cinderella wishes she had a pair too :)

We love eating our way around Disney almost as much as the rides and entertainment!
It's always fun to discover new treats. We found the strawberry macaron ice cream
sandwiches in France at Epcot and they were delicious!

As you can see from all of the photos, Madison and I love our Tieks ballet flats.
Tieks are the perfect shoes to wear anywhere, but Disney World is the place we love to
wear them most of all! It's our happy place!

If you're on the fence about ordering your first pair of Tieks read this post.

Pesto Croutons


Pesto Croutons
 Last week while traveling to New Orleans, I had a delicious salad from Stanley on Saint
Ann Street (Jackson Square). It was a mixed green salad with pesto croutons and roasted
pine nuts and the croutons were so good I knew I had to try to make them at home.

That time I Tried To Be A Fashion Blogger




If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen me post these photos last week and
you might have thought to yourself what in the world is she doing - ha ha.

Although my Instagram and blog are primarily food focused, I also write about travel
DIY, beauty and shoes when the mood strikes. So when I was recently asked if I would 
like to receive a few pieces of Crown and Ivy clothing from Belk to model and post to 
my  Instagram I said yes! I already own a few pieces of clothing from Crown and Ivy 
and love them, so I thought why not?

Chicken Pot Pie Pasta























I'm so happy that spring is officially here, but our weather has been crazy. Sixty degrees
one day and twenty degrees the next. Is it winter, is it spring? Who knows!

One thing I do know is that when it's cold and dreary outside, there's nothing like a warm
and comforting meal for dinner. Chicken Pot Pie Pasta is comfort food at it's best, and
the fact that it is a one-pot meal makes it even better!

free snack any time of day!

Why I Use a Food Scale























I'm not technically on a "diet", but I have been paying close attention to what I eat
and how much I eat since the beginning of the year.  I gained a few extra pounds over
the past 24 months, and while I'm not over weight, I have not felt comfortable with the
way my clothes have been fitting. This past January I was finally in the right mind set
to get serious and lose the extra weight.

I am all about moderation, so I have not been depriving myself of anything, I'm a
food blogger for goodness sake, but I have been focused on eating less processed food
and making healthy, clean choices when it comes to food.

Sprouted Wheat Blueberry Pancakes


Sprouted Grain Blueberry Pancakes with yogurt and granola





















Last summer I had the best pancakes of my life in a cozy farm kitchen located in Vermont.
Julie, from Green Wind Farm made them for us while we were on the Stonyfield Farm Tour
and I haven't stopped thinking about them since!
