Me Before You | Movie Release

Everything else, Lifestyle, NEWS

Me_Before_You_(film)

COMING OUT ON JUNE 3, 2016, and I couldn’t be more excited! The movie “Me Before You” is based on the Jojo Moyes Novel that was written in 2012. I read the book last year and I talked a little about it in my “March Currently” post. I remember reading it at night while I was nursing my baby, I was tired of course but more than that I was so intrigued by what would happen next and I kept reading. I was reading the book in one breath and while I was reading I kept telling myself: “There’s gotta be a movie. Someone definitely thought about making the movie based on this book. I couldn’t be the only one to think that this book is just so great!”. And of course, I googled it and was so happy to find out that the movie was made and was coming out in summer!!

The story is about a young successful man William Traynor (actor: Sam Claflin) who enjoyed life to its fullest until one day a terrible accident happened to him and he got paralyzed. Being bound to a wheelchair is worse for him than death itself. 2 years later a young woman named Louisa Clark (actress: Emilia Clarke) is hired to be his caregiver and she is determined to prove to Will that life is worth living.  Continue reading “Me Before You | Movie Release”

Black swimsuit whether it’s a one-piece,a  tankini or a bikini is such a classic piece for me. It looks good on anyone and it’s always in trend. Here I chose some black swimsuits that are perfect for summer, great for any body types and some of them cost only $15 🙂

Monday Vlog: Signed The Papers

Dallas, Texas, Family, Lifestyle

On February 25, 2016, we finally signed all the papers on the house. AND THE HOUSE IS OFFICIALLY OURS!!!We couldn’t be more excited! We were looking for our perfect house for a while now, and this house has everything we wanted and is in the location we really wanted to live in! It does need to be updated and remodeled (we are doing it now, and we are moving in 1 week or so), which means we will love it even more 🙂

We also shopped for new appliances, and the best deals we found were at Nebraska Furniture Mart, they offer 18-30 months financing and they do price match.

Follow

I’m definitely going to do a before and after video of the house, and trust me you will want to see it!! So stay tuned for that video and subscribe either to this blog or to our family channel not to miss it!

Taco Sweet Potato and Spinach Egg Bake

taco-sweetpotato-egg-bake-recipe

(source)

  • 3 small (12 oz) sweet potatoes, coarsely grated
  • 6 large eggs or 3 large eggs + 1 cup egg whites (my choice)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper, ground
  • 1/2 tsp taco seasoning
  • 1/2 cup any milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1/2 cup any cheese, shredded (I used full fat white cheddar)
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped (optional)
  • 1 small garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tbsp jalapeno, seeded & minced (for kid friendly I used 1/2 tbsp)
  • 2 handfuls of baby spinach
  • Cooking spray
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, line 8 x 8 square baking dish with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.*
  2. In a large mixing bowl add eggs, salt, pepper, taco seasoning and whisk for 30 seconds. Add milk, cheese, cilantro, garlic, jalapeno peppers and whisk to combine.
  3. Add sweet potatoes and spinach, mix, transfer to prepared baking dish and bake for 50 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes before cutting. Serve hot, warm or cold.
Storage Instructions: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to a week or freeze for up to 3 – 4 months.

Notes

*You could also use a non-stick muffin tin, just make sure to spray it REALLY well with cooking spray or use BPA-free silicone baking cups. I also like to double the recipe, bake in 9″ x 13″ baking dish and freeze for later. Please note, baking time will increase by about 20 – 25 minutes, depending on your oven.

Avocado Boat

Cut an avocado in half, the long way. Remove the pit. Get creative and stuff with your favorite salad, cuisine, or an egg.

Here are couple of options:

Pico De Gallo: Chopped tomato, red onion, garlic granules, jalapeño, cilantro, Himalyan sea salt, and lime juice.

Turkey BLT: Off the bone turkey breast, nitrate-free bacon, chopped tomato, fresh spinach.

March Currently

Dallas, Texas, Everything else, Family, Lifestyle, Thoughts

march-currently

Hi everyone, and welcome to my new series of monthly posts “Currently”. At the end of every month, I’m going to share with you what I’m up to, exciting news, obsessions etc.

So this month I have been:

Reminded of how important it is to live right here right now..at the moment, and not when the weather gets better, a house is bigger, next month, or when you have more money. I’ve been reminded of that happiness is a state of mind and doesn’t depend on the circumstances (you might think it does, but it doesn’t).

Reading articles and posts on Facebook and Google. Just news, tips on parenting, articles that catch my eyes.  I would be glad to read an actual book, but I don’t really have much time for it these days. The last book I read was “Me Before You” and it was several months ago. It’s a really great book, and I can’t wait to see the movie which is coming out in June.

Watching. Usually, Daniel and I have date (movie) nights on Saturday and Sunday after we put kids to bed. And this month we watched all 3 parts of IpMan, Joy, War Room and Deadpool. Great movies! Deadpool is my least favorite from the list! It doesn’t have a deep meaning to it, but nevertheless, it was fun to watch, it’s definitely very different movie, and if you haven’t seen it you should..as you should watch all the movies that I mentioned above 🙂

Enjoying double date night with our friends. We had a dinner at our favorite Thai restaurant, and then went to Karaoke place, came home at 2:30 am. No kids, just adults, and it felt GREAT!!! (and I don’t even feel guilty for saying this lol). We had a really great time singing Karaoke, and I would share the video with you, but it’s just too private LOL.. I posted a short 15 sec video on Instagram though. By the way, are you as excited as I am about a new Instagram update? 1 min video instead of 15 sec!!!  Continue reading “March Currently”

Monday Vlog: Family Fun At The Zoo

Dallas, Texas, Family, Lifestyle

Our second try to go to the Zoo was a success!! It wasn’t super warm, but we couldn’t wait to get there and see the animals, ride a horse, feed the birds… And Christian loves going to the zoo so much, we didn’t want to tell him no 🙂

Besides going to the zoo, we had dinner with friends, playdates, David’s 6 months checkup, and don’t miss Christian’s singing (one of his favorite songs is “Thinking out loud” by Ed Sheeran) in this vlog!
