Reese’s Triumphs All

First of all, I want to say thank you to all of you who commented on my last post about all-inclusive vacations. You definitely gave me some things to think about and I appreciate all the recommendations as well! I’ve already visited a handful of websites from the places you mentioned and I wanna go on a tropical vacation NOW. 😉 Waiting more than six months is no fun!


Dinner tonight was super simple. When I eat a big salad, I usually eat one for lunch. I prefer hot, more indulgent-tasting dinners for the most part. Buuuut, tonight I changed it up a bit and had a big salad for dinner.

Beef Tenderloin Salad

My salad included:

  • Beef tenderloin
  • Spinach
  • Arugula
  • Carrots
  • Sugar snap peas
  • Cucumber
  • Olive oil + balsamic vinegar


The salad was good, but I’m not gonna lie… Dessert was much better. ;)For Easter Ryan gave me the biggest Reese’s egg I’ve ever seen.

 Since dinner was on the lighter side, I had my fair share of this bad boy…

Ohhhh Yum

Chocolate + Peanut Butter = Heaven

Anyone else pumped that tomorrow is Friiiiday!?

All-Inclusive Honeymoons

Today’s lunch was suuuper simple.

I’m a huge fan of fruit, bread and cheese platters at parties, and recreated a little platter for myself for lunch today.

I made an apple and cheese quesadilla on a whole wheat tortilla.

On the side, I had a mini-fruit salad with chopped apple and strawberries.

Dessert included two pieces of Easter candy.

All-Inclusive Honeymoons

Ryan and I are in the process of selecting our honeymoon destination. We’re really intrigued by the all-inclusive resorts since it makes vacation planning easier and can help save money on food and drinks. We don’t want to go on a cruise since we live in Florida and can do that anytime for pretty cheap, so we’re looking into Caribbean all-inclusive resorts.

Have you ever stayed at an all-inclusive resort? Thoughts? Recommendations?

At my Invisalign appointment this morning, my orthodontist recommended Excellence Resorts with locations in the Dominican Republic and Mexico. The website sure makes these resorts look breath-taking!

Excellence Playa Mujeres Resort and Spa

My main concern with all-inclusive vacations is the added fees associated with activities or spa services. Both Ryan and I like to explore on vacations, and I know we’ll want to do fun activities like scuba diving. We don’t want to pay an arm and a leg for the added adventures.

Decisions, decisions…

Good Workout, Unexpected

Sometimes I wake up knowing I’m going to have a great workout.

Today was not one of those days… but I surprised myself and had a great one! Don’t ya love it when that happens?

I was nice and sweaty by the end of my cardio session which looked like this:

…Followed by 20 minutes of light cardio on the elliptical with two bridal magazines.

I met up with Ryan as he was finishing his workout. As we were walking out we couldn’t help but laugh because Ryan was the one carrying my bridal magazines. Here he is, this beefy muscle guy, walking around with girly magazines. Gotta love it! 🙂


Breakfast came together quickly!

Last night I prepped some oats to use in a breakfast bowl with Greek yogurt and sliced strawberries.

Oatmeal + Yogurt + Strawberries

I didn’t reheat the oats because I really like cold oatmeal (weird, I know). I loved this combination!

Now I’m off to an Invisalign appointment before heading to work!

Breeze Comfort Giveaway Winner

I love that you guys are as obsessed with sports bras as I am! 😀

The lucky winner of the Breeze Comfort sports bra is Blair!

Blair said, “I love sports bras in bright colors! I always like to sport a peppy outfit when working out. While I’m not the type to put on makeup and do my hair for a trip to the gym, I think wearing something that looks put together vs an old ripped tshirt actually pushes me to go harder!”

Congrats, Blair. Please email me at with your contact information to receive your brand new bra!
