July Already?

I feel like this year is just flying by, don't you?  It's already July, people!

Summer has me feeling kind of lazy when it comes to the blog.  Cooking in a hot, tiny kitchen and sitting at my computer editing pictures are basically the last things I want to be doing.  I'd much rather be lounging with a good book sipping lemonade.  Or under the umbrella at the beach listening to the waves.  Or off on vacation somewhere....

I also feel like my blog is having an identity crisis lately.  Is it a healthy living blog?  Or more of a food blog?  Should I stop using blogger and switch to Word Press?  Should I change the name to something in English so people can understand me when I tell them what it's called?  Oh decisions, decisions....

Later this week, I'm flying up to visit my mom and dad in Maryland.  I hope to catch up with old friends, spend plenty of time relaxing and just soaking in the comfort of being home.  My little trip couldn't come at a better time.  I feel like inspiration has been a little lacking lately and a change of scenery will be just what I need to get the creative juices flowing again.

And, because I feel the need to prove that I haven't fallen into a black hole, here are some pictures of what I've been up to lately....


I bought a new headboard for our guest bedroom.  It's beige linen fabric and it was love at first sight...which is why it was worth renting a HUGE pickup truck all by my little (5'3") self and hauling it home.


I attended a Chevy Fit 4 Life Tour event yesterday put on by GM In The Southeast with a group of girls from my blogging meet-up group.  It involved a bootcamp class at Lifestyle Family Fitness in Hyde Park Village, followed by lunch at Fit Life Foods, an art class at Painting With A Twist and finally, Yoga in the Park.  It was a long, busy day and I was sweaty and sore at the end of it - but in a VERY good way!

Here are some photos I "borrowed" from the Tampa Bay Lady Bloggers Facebook page, courtesy of Caroline:

Yoga in the Park.  (took this pic a few weeks ago at Yoga in the Park but it always looks about the same)

Swag bag from the event.  Love the headbands!
 Today, Hudson and I went for a nice long 3 mile walk.  Only, it had to be at least 90 degrees out and Hudson decided he needed a rest break.

Crazy eyes!

Reading magazines at the hair salon today and came across this tasty photo.  It's going on my must-make list!
Thinking I'm going to try this recipe soon.  It looks GOOD!
 Got a hair cut and high/low lights today.  Lookin' good!

  2. I just tried a roasted shrimp recipe for the first time. It went on the "to make again" list. I can't believe I had never thought of roasting shrimp before! I am coming to the conclusion that every thing tastes better roasted. Here is the recipe that I tried. I should note that I used frozen shrimp, dried herbs and limes because that is what I had on hand.
