Monday's Top 5 {#15}

Good afternoon!

This post is coming to you live from location ---- San Antonio!
In my opinion, there are not a lot of things that are cooler than walking outside of your hotel and seeing the Alamo.  It is such a huge part of Texas History and it is just beautiful.  I love it!

I usually hate to say on the world wide web when we are away...I like to post about it when we return...because I think someone will surely rob us now because I just told them that we are not home.  Whatever, I hope to goodness if you are reading this and decide to rob change your mind because that would just not be cool.  Thanks, Mr. Robber or Ms. Robber...

Back to my Top 5 ---- Today I am going to share with you 5 things that I am LOVING right now.

1) Food Inspiration

Back in June our Link Party was Summer Recipes ---- Mandy over @ Almond Place shared a recipe for Bang Bang Cauliflower/Shrimp - Oh My Good---ness.
I made this the other night and it was delicious.  
She said the recipe was super easy....and it was, I just made a HUGE mess.  I'm sure that's just me though, I'm a little messy, especially in the kitchen.
When you make a meal and your husband says over and over....This is so good, you have to make this for company! --- 

Well, then Honey, you have done something right in the kitchen and you need to make that dish again!

Find her recipe HERE

This is a picture of Mandy's meal --- mine was not as pretty, but still delicious.

2) Life Inspiration

I am so grateful for being able to forgive others quickly!
It does me absolutely no good to hold onto a grudge or some painful memory.  
Forgiveness is key.
& do you ever have one of those moments where you want to kick yourself or shove something in your mouth so the words will stop coming out...and then just start your day over? 
Uh,,,yeah, me either ;) 
For those moments, I am sooooo very thankful for forgiveness.

btw...on Wednesday, I'm going to hear this guy (Max Lucado) talk.
and I totally saved this pic for this post before I even knew that.
God is awesome like that.

3) Beauty Inspiration

I love my hair, but I do not enjoy fixing it.  I especially hate detangling it and blow drying's so thick and long it takes FOREVER. 
Enter this little bottle.
I have searched high and low for an awesome dry shampoo and I finally found it at Target for $2.89 or $2.98 not sure, regardless::: cheap!

Just remember to shake it before you apply or your hair will look mine did just this morning :)

Thank you Suave!

4) Home Inspiration

I don't think I can convince Jason that we need this....but maybe YOU need it??

5) Mommy Inspiration

  1. Haha you cracked me up talking about cooking. What counts is that it tasted good! I need to try some of those recipes- good reminder!

    1. :) Have you tried any of the recipes yet? I know you've had a busy, fun-filled summer by reading your amazing blog!

  2. I loved this post!!!!

    1) Crack me up about the robber and it's so true never tell people when your on vaca!!!!

    2) I am sooooo gonna make this recipe, sounds super yum!!!

    3) I'm pretty jealous you easily forgive!!! I know that sounds weird....but I am quick to anger and slow to forgive, it's something I'm working on and I absolutely HATE it about myself and other people that are the same way. I think it's true.... if we feel (feel being the keyword) like we have been wronged in some way and we just let it go, that person was able to hurt us or wrong us with no consequences. Life is tooooo short to live life worrying about how another person has wronged us, they are human and none of us are perfect. We should only expect perfection from GOD!
