What I've been up to in insta...

Is it already September? I swear it was just the 4th of July and then I woke up and it was September.  It's that time of year, fall has fallen upon us.  But, it doesn't quite feel like it here in Nashville...yet.  I've been on a few work trips, a few fun trips {Helloooo, PUNTA CANA!}, and had a few visitors.  Oh yeah, and one of my best friends got married!  Here is my life in insta- over the last several weeks.  I'm promising to blog at least once a week the next few months.  Oh and the photos aren't in order...but um...these people are amaze!!!! :) LOVE.



I was perusing the lovely Style Me Swanky blog and saw this gorgeous number and decided it would be my birthday dress!  The birthday is approaching, and although it is a number that far to close to thirty, I am grateful for the many experiences I've had thus far in my life, and people I've come to meet.  I've thoroughly enjoyed my twenties and want to soak up every last minute.  Nashville has been so kind to me and I cannot wait to spend a Friday evening with the people I love.

How should I accessorize?  I was thinking some bold earrings would be perfect and wearing the hair up.  I going to see my favorite stylist, beauty consultant, and health and vitamin extraordinare, Jana Hilton at Shine Salon.  She, and the salon are the absolute best.  She just knows how to create a beautiful, natural look - and layers my hair perfectly.   They also always have a soda pop, or glass vino ready and waiting for you.  


Under le Sea....*I just booked a trip to Punta Cana

Just a little Timeflies on this Tuesday.  I grew up a total water baby, loving the ocean and sand.  Brown Eyed girl reminds me of the Bahamas and time spent learning to love music with my dad.   I also LOVE the little mermaid and wittle sebastian.  Insert "Kiss the Girl."  Okey, so I really love this song below.  Annnnnnnnd I just booked a trip to Punta Cana with one of my best friends!!  So Tuesday will officially be designated as tropical music day.  August will be here before we know it, in the mean time...I am looking forward to knocking out tons of marketing programs so I can rest and relax....I can't wait to turn my email OFF for an entire week.

Quote of the day..

I admit, sometimes, justifying budget, metrics, quantifying everything I do is HARD WORK. But when you're able to show you're results, and prove yourself.  It's worth it.  Just a little Monday motivation.


baking brunch edition: eggs in ham cup

Sometimes I like to cook.  And this recipe is a total brunch crowd pleaser.  My instagram and FB posts gets lots of love and my guests are always pleased.  Its simpler than an omelette or poached egg (2 other favorites of mine).  You can really throw in whatever you like.  I like plain with some parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and arugula or marche rosettes for a little flavor and presentation.

I added some fresh Farmers Market strawberry's and local strawberry jam.

1. Preheat oven to: 390 (uhhh don't ask how I found this out, but works perfectly)
2. Oil/Butter your ramekim reallllly good.  its a gonna be a nightmare cleaning these suckers if you forget this step. (side note - you need ramekins if you don't have them)
2. Cover your ramekin in thinly sliced ham (do not use shaved ham).  I usually use 2 - 3 pieces of ham per ramekin.
3. Drop an egg or two into the ham cup, whatever tickets your fancy
4.  Throw in whatever you want. This is where I insert some cherry tomatoes, onions, bacon, salt, pepps, etc.

Voila - set the timer to 15 minutes, you might need more or less time depending on your oven, just watch the ham closely - I tend to often burn the top


LBB {Little. Black. Bikini}

After a small, and important instagram vote-off.  I invested in this little number for the summer.  A few of my very good friends have a roof-top pool.  And I am planning a tropical getaway with the girls to Dominican, St. Lucia, or somewhere with coconuts you can drink out of and funny little umbrellas that fit in  your drink ;) 

If you ladies have any recommendations of a destination, let me know.  We're looking for a good 5 to 6-day getaway.
