Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
It's a lovely sunny day here in New Mexico. After I shared my veggie haul people were asking me how I prepare the produce I bought, so I thought I would share some simple and tasty recipes over the course of the next few days. One SUPER easy and delicious recipe is:
Petite Herbed Potatoes
(Vegan, Simple, classic side dish)
Petite Herbed Potatoes are soooooo easy to make. They also make your kitchen smell wonderful!
These petite potatoes are amazing as is or you can serve with vegan sour cream. #OMG Let me know if you make these or are going to try the recipe. I'd love to hear how you liked them.
Catch you later~

Hello Travel Fam,
This Monday is a bit slower than others — not feeling the best today. (Anyone else?)
But that’s okay! Some days you need to take a little time for yourself to recoup & recover so you can take charge the rest of the week! So that's my plan, a bit of R & R and then come back hopefully feeling ready to go.
So if your Monday has been like mine, give yourself a break. Pour another cup of tea and do what you can, but don't try to do everything.
Have a great rest of your day friends 💕
Hi Travel Fam,
Hope you are warm and well.
There is a winter storm watch here and we are scheduled for snow tonight. (It's only 2 months early, lol.) Today most of America is busy jamming into airports, clogging the roads, and shopping. Thankfully, this year we are staying home. I have deadlines to meet and trips to plan, lol.
Hope that where ever your travels take you in the world, you are safe, warm and happy.
Phew. I cannot believe how fast this year is flying by.
As I'm packing for a quick (I will only be gone a week this time) trip I was thinking about Arline Apps. Someone ask me, the other day if I used them and the answer is:
Because even if you uninstall them on your way home from the airport, I totally recommend tracking your plane and downloading that boarding pass onto an airline app.
Let’s be real: you’ll be looking at your phone anyway... Why not have it let you know if your gate changes or if your flight is delayed.
There are about a million travel hacks out there, but I download airline and train apps and actually USE them. And as I said, you can always delete afterwards. I have deleted most of my European apps, but (wink) I maybe reinstalling them again soon.
See you at the airport~
Greetings 'Net Family,
This is very important now.
Mega serious stuff.
Are you ready?
I need to know … what’s your Secret Must Watch TV? Go ahead, let it out. You’ll feel better, and there’s no TV shaming here. I’ll even go first. I’ve been watching — remember, no judging — GOT because I have company and they apparently are Amish cave dwellers (not really) and have never seen any of it. #WTF?!
So as most of you know, I usually have the TV viewing habits of a teenage girl. This means I watch all the CW shows. Don’t judge me. But I also watch most all science fiction/fantasy and odd foreign films (okay, anime) lol, that I can get my hands on. But lately I just haven't been finding anything new to obsess over.
And did I mention it's snowing and the city is shut down?
The weather is cold, windy and unpleasant, so I'm looking for new, addictive shows, dear family. So please share your obsessions below or via email.
Speak soon, I have another season of GOT to plow through ~
Hi Travel Family!
This week I'm planning a three day weekend/get together for late January at my place. I have about a million and one things to do, but I'm so excited!
I was looking for a gold, glitzy type theme for our get-together, but wasn't finding much except some NYE type stuff. And this party will be weeks after....The stores are putting out Valentine's Day decoration already and thats not the theme I was going for. #Fail
It is almost impossible to find party ware that isn't aimed at small children or birthdays. I need something elegant, not too pricey and simple. Is that asking too much?
When I didn't find anything in town I turned to trusty Amazon and they didn't disappoint. I will show you the plates/cutlery when they arrive, (they were Prime so it will be soon, lol) and I also found some cute, fun little extras I can add to the goodie bags too!
Beginning Jan 1, 2019, You can Save 15.0% on select products from Smart Tart Design with promo code 15QUITTER, through 1/30 while supplies last. (Cute, right?) AND I found a coupon code I can share with you! Hit the link to see other cool stuff they have on offer.
I'm also thinking of decorating with something like this:
It will look cute, but not too Christmas-y. I also found a code for it! Save 55.0% on select products from WED with promo code 55BKKMPD, through 1/3 while supplies last. Click here to take a closer look. Thank you Amazon, for saving the day for this event!
I'm also looking at making the guest room a bit more "homey" and less "spare room - throw unwanted junk in here" lol, which is the current theme. So I've bought some plants and a few pictures and was looking for a nice duvet to dress it up some. I found a good deal on a
3 piece Duvet Cover:
This code will save up to 50% off on this cute set!
So all in all it's been a very productive day!
I'm still not finished, but I feel like I am at least making progress. Expect another post when everything arrives - and if you want to use the codes, get on it! They are all limited time deals - some of them don't start until Jan- click each to read the start/end date.
Catch you later~
How are you?
It's a chilly 42' this afternoon in overcast New Mexico. (I love it!) And because I have a MEGA amount of traveling coming up I am out walking around trying to do anything but work, lol.
So behold the beauty of a chilly afternoon walk...
More videos soon, I may even finally post the Iceland videos. Better late, than never.
Catch you later~
How's your weekend going?
The weather is changing fast, winter is almost here. The winds have kicked up and the temps are dropping just in time for the yearly Balloon Fest. This year it will run from October 6-14, 2018. *Hit the link to read more about it.
Turns out Balloon Fest here is a lot like Mardi Gras in NOLA, all the locals leave and let the tourist run wild! One of my native friends told me it's not safe to drive, as all the tourist are looking up watching the balloons and not paying attention to the traffic. She has gone to Vegas for the weekend to escape. #VegasIsAlwaysAGoodIdea
I did manage to get out of bed today and go for a walk. Spotted this lovely morning glory, blooming like no ones business while I was out. The color was so intense and vibrant my silly iPhone did not catch it, but you get the idea. I always marvel at what thrives in the desert.
Although I'm more excited about buying new clothes since I dropped more weight!
Either way it is time to do some closet cleaning and make room for new leggings and fuzzy sweaters. I was looking around yesterday, in two years we have filled this house! It doesn't feel empty anymore. Funny how that happens, isn't it? You grab a few things and then a few more and before you know it, a 5 bedroom house is full!
If you have been following me awhile you know I dislike clutter and too much stuff. I'm not a minimalist, but I also don't like the general disarray that too much stuff can cause. So I may spend this month editing both my summer and winter wardrobe and boxing up stuff to donate.
Meanwhile I went outside to pick the last of the tomatoes and this happened....
Hope you have an amazing week~
Summers end in New Mexico is one of my favorite times of the year.
There are so many flowers blooming I’m keeping myself busy taking photos of every single one I see, lol! This means I get into hilarious positions next to the side of the road or awkward situations taking pics. #GoodTimes lol
(Have you seen me on the side of the road, upside down with camera in hand? Lol) But it is so worth it! I love all the amazing colors and textures. This years flower crop is really kicking it because of the monsoons.
So with all of the wildflowers blooming & the weather being just perfect, I do not want to stay inside at all! I'm so glad I took the week off. #HappyBirthday2Me
Normally we would have gone on a cruise or made a trip to Europe, but with my friends recent passing, I wasn't in the mood for a grand adventure. Being in nature was just what I needed.
Camping pictures and other adventures posted up soon.
See you at the airport~
