With the Holidays at a close and school starting back this week,  it's time to get back on track with eating healthier and prepping healthier snacks for my boys.  Cuties citrus always helps bring the sunshine to our home, especially on weeks that call for adjusting and getting back to our normal routine. 

These California grown goodies allow me to be creative with snacks on the go for my boys, and they love them!

One of our favorites is a simple fruit cup in a jar.  We enjoy pairing bananas, apples, grapes and strawberries; with cuties. Which makes for a delicious fruit mix;  topped with chopped pecans and a sprinkle of coconut, and you have yourself a yummy snack for any time of the day.  They are perfect for the adults in the house too!

She Inspires Fall Brunch-Pt. 2

Well here we go already digging into the second week of 2018 and I am finally putting up more photos from our Fall Brunch at one of our favorite venue. The Grove in Round Rock, TX. 

 HAPPY New YEAR LOVELIES!! 

This brunch was definitely full of color and lots of floral details and we can't get enough!!  Thanks to the fabulous Rooted Trumpet photography for the amazing photo.

 We had the most amazing time coming together with so many lovelies and just escaping from the everyday chaos for the morning and enjoying brunch,  encouragement, prayer and a little shopping!   God truly reveals so much to us when we stop and give ourselves the time needed to reflect and let go of all the things that way us down..

FARMRICH: PERFECT GAME DAY SNACKS

This post is sponsored by FarmRich.  All content and details are my opinion. 

In my house we are all about gathering over the perfect go to spread of snacks on game day; as we cheer on our favorite teams.  

Living in a house with boys,  it's a big deal to have the perfect snacks available at all times.  Between my husband and two boys I am constantly in the mood for an easier alternative on Game days, and FarmRich gives me plenty of options.  These easy go to frozen snacks are ready to serve only in minutes.

Some of our go to favorites are the original meatballs,  cheese sticks and the jalapeno peppers.  Our friends also love them! 

A little bit more about our favorites!!  We love that the meatballs are gluten free and make for a healthier option.  I cook them in BBQ sauce in a sauce pan mixing the meatballs in to add a nice sweet and savory taste.  Once done I toss them on a bed of lettuce on a platter...  MY BOYS love them!

The Cheese sticks are always the first to leave the spread and we enjoy pairing them with marinara for dipping along with the Jalapeno Peppers which are my husbands favorite, paired with ranch.

My husband also like pairing this game day spread with a nice cold Dr. Pepper, which makes for the perfect combination.

She Inspires 2017 Fall Brunch (Details)

I am so excited to finally share a bit of the She Inspires fall brunch at The Grove in Round Rock TX.  While planning this brunch, I learned that God is always in the details,  as long as we let him orchestrate every step of the way.

The fall brunch was full of inspiration and was such a sweet time in God's presence with so many lovelies.

The ladies were greeted by the large letters "SHE"  as they walked on the grounds.  Then as they entered the venue they could shop, enjoy coffee, shop and mingle and make new friends.

These lovelies helped make this brunch so special, from the team pulling all the details together, to the speakers on our panels.  They were all such a blessing and helped make each woman that attended feel inspired.

She Prays Book Launch at Raven & Lily

These last couple of months have seriously blown me away, finishing up my first book has brought me a overwhelming joy and most days I still can't put it into words.   My heart is so full!  I have reminded myself over and over againthat this faith journey is not about me, it's about God.  When I can seriously take myself out of the equation, I can type into letting God do the supernatural in my life.   At the beginning of the month I had the She Prays book launch party at the fabulous Raven & Lily  at The Domain.  Thanks to everyone that came out to support me and that purchased a book!  It was such an amazing experience and I am feeling so blessed!  Thanks Raven and Lily for hosting and for the lovely Rachel of Pink Lace Designs for bringing this book  to life.  Also  thanks to my sweet friends for helping me pull everything together so quickly.  The fabulous LadyCakes Sweets & Treats made some yummy cupcakes and my lovely friend Crestal of Be Fierce Photography for captured the event.  It was such a sweet event!
