Gray outside? COLOR INSIDE!

HEY Ya’LL it’s been nothing but rain rain rain and cloudy skies since I’ve been home. HOWEVER, I’ve managed to make the most out of my time by cooking and shopping…..awwwwwww yeah.

Last night my friends Ariane and Adrienne came over and we made an awesome dinner including: salad, whole grain noodles, and shrimp marinara    

( recipe below)

Shrimp marinara: combine in a pan on medium heat:

  • 2 gloves of garlic (chopped)
  • 1/2 a medium onion
  • 1 green pepper

Then add:

  • 1 pound of mini shrimp
  • 1 can of stewed tomatoes
  • marinara sauce to taste



I woke up and went to a spin class with my mom, A VERY INTENSE ONE… I loved it of course 😉

Then we went out to lunch at Panera and I had a mango smoothie with a classic salad…HIT THE SPOT!

NEXT, we went to Bonton to use our 20% off coupon. I got some cute INTERNSHIP ATTIRE 😉 two pairs of sandals, A VERY colorful quilt for my bed, and (drum roll please)…………


Ahhhh my first step in my efforts to improve photo quality this summer and do some experimenting in photography 🙂 After some food shopping,  I cooked dinner for my ever-so-grateful parents 😉 haha

I made MAPLE-ORANGE SCALLOPS! ( I got the recipe from self magazine) I basically marinated the scallops in soy sauce, garlic, orange juice, and maple syrup! THEY TURNED OUT GREAT 🙂

I served it with asparagus, and couscous with cucumber


I will now leave you with some highlights of my grocery shopping today.


Do you like to go food shopping like me?

What’s one food you’ve been obsessed with lately?? 

Have a relaxing sunday!

Peace, Love, and Calm
