30 FOR 30: Football Favorites Countdown

Since football season is ONE month away I decided to do a countdown of one item a day that I LOVE about football!

I am a SOONER at heart so many of my items show my love for the University of Oklahoma but most items can convert to other teams!

First up you ask? LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!  When we tailgate we go to SooneRVillage! Mark’s parents have an Airstream which is PERFECT.  We can cook, have electricity and most importantly a CLEAN bathroom! This tailgate season will be our 7th year there and our tailgate continues to grow…. Mostly because of all the new babies but new friends attend too! Here are a few pictures of our tailgate!

Easy Edamame

I LOVE fast easy recipes and BONUS is if they are healthy.  Edamame is a favorite for us so if dinner maybe running late or we are just looking for a snack I can easily do the recipe below in under 5 minutes!

1 bag Frozen Edamame- I like Birds Eye.

Olive Oil

Crushed Red Pepper

Garlic & Pepper seasoning

Salt

Follow bags directions on bag. Once cooked empty into large bowl.  Drizzle a little olive oil and then sprinkle garlic and pepper seasoning, salt and crushed red pepper.  I like to add a little, mix and then add more until it reaches the flavor I like.  Usually I just have to do that twice… especially with the red pepper it can get a little too spicy for my taste if not!

What is your favorite fast, easy and healthy snack recipe?

Catching Up

Where has this summer gone?! I have been traveling the last 3 weeks so keeping up the blog has been a challenge!

I have an OOTD post coming soon, a fun recipe post and maybe a little something special!

I went to Indiana and Pennsylvania for work! Ate a HUGE Chicken Fried Steak… Not really my thing but when in Rome (or some hole in the wall bar in Indiana)! IMG_2478IMG_2483

Mark and I ventured to a craft brewer in Fort Worth called Martin House! We had SO much fun.  Loved the souviner glass and over favorite brew was the Imperial Texan!IMG_2488

I also ventured to Florida and successfully surprised my brother, aunt, uncle and grandparents! We had a great time enjoying family!

Then it was back to Indiana for Marks family reunion this weekend.  Let’s just say 17 hour road trips are not my thing.  I did get some awesome pictures! It was great to meet and see Mark’s family and just have a good ol’ time! Seriously cornfields in the summer are a sight to see! This place looked like a movie set!

becoming a statistic

I think this blog is so important for people in our society today. We are so imaged based and it can really destroy a person. It takes a brave soul to talk about it and I think this piece really stands out!

{Current} Favorite Things

I don’t really like change but lately I have gotten/tried/found some [new to me] things that I am loving. So I thought I would share!

Lip Gloss–  This gives a great sheen and it also gives a cool tingly feeling… Perfect on these hot summer days.

Workout Pants– These are comfy and reversible! Keep my legs cool and how fun is this color!

watermelon

Mini Watermelons– These are still pretty good size but it is great that you can cut one and keep one! I hate having to buy one huge water melon for me and Mark!

What are a few of your favorite things?!

Just Keep Swimming

I am back in action with a work out/ eating better routine.  I posted about trying Barre Class a while back and really loved that workout.  However, I wanted to be able to try more classes with more schedule options so I decided to join my local YMCA.

I tried Yoga Fusion the other day and loved it! Today I wanted to explore the pool.  So I ran a few miles on the treadmill and headed to the pool.

I have always been a water lover; I was on swim team and a lifeguard [Shout out to my Trails Pool Sharks].  However, I haven’t swam laps in probably close to 8 or 9 years.  It was back in college and I definitely didn’t do it on a regular basis.  So I busted out the speedo I wore on swim team [AKA vintage speedo because it is 15+ years old] and my goggles and I was ready to go.

Side note: why are speedo’s so funny looking on my body.

In my head I was going to swim a mile [32 laps at the YMCA]. And then I jump in and swam ONE lap and thought HOLY &%$@ this is WAY harder then I remember! Where are some floaties when I need them??!?!!

However, I took my time and did 16 laps and felt good about myself.  This has definitely shown me how I need to adjust expectations but also push myself. I am enjoying trying new classes and getting back into old fitness habits!
