Egypt in the Summer: What to Wear

Whenever I plan a trip, of course I start to think about what sorts of clothes I'll want to pack and wear on my upcoming vacation.  When we booked Egypt, I knew that my outfits would take a little bit of extra consideration.  


Foodie Fun: Salsa with Avocado!

Like Lauren said in her guacamole post, we've GOT to have a few avocado recipes added in here! And it just so happens that Lauren's guac pairs wonderfully with this salsa recipe. Now I wouldn't exactly say that two girls raised in South Louisiana are the experts on salsa recipes, but since moving to Texas a year and a half ago, I've been on the hunt for great salsa!

Luckily, I didn't have to look further than my own home. Turns out, my boyfriend's grandmother has an AMAZING salsa recipe that he's perfected over the last few years. His grandfather was from Mexico, so it's got to be legit, right??

We've vetted this recipe with all kinds of people. It's our go-to "what to bring" for pool parties, house hang outs, or just when we want snack at the house. Everyone loves it. I honestly can't even say how long it'll keep because we've only had leftovers like once... It's THAT good.


Renee's Stitch Fix Order #1 Review

Since entering the working world about a year and a half ago, I’ve noticed that I’m shopping less. Or clothes shopping at least. My trips to Lowe’s and Home Depot have risen significantly, but trips to the outlets and mother-daughter/sister-sister/best friend shopping trips have dropped off. There’s just always so many things to do over the weekend! So that’s why I’ve taken the plunge and signed up for Stitch Fix.


"Guac This Way" Guacamole Recipe

We can't go naming our blog with a guac-related pun and not share my guacamole recipe as one of the first posts, now can we?  I created this guacamole recipe as the perfect mix of everything I love in my guac (while leaving out some of the things I don't), and it's gotten the thumbs up from everyone who has tried it.  I never get tired of hearing someone say "You know, I normally don't like guacamole, but this stuff is delicious!"  It's definitely a crowd-pleaser, so be sure to make a big batch - and be prepared to get asked to make it again and again!
