Unicorn Frappuccino 🦄


The unicorn frappuccino, the most basic drink of 2017. 🦄  Thousands of Instagram posts already. Is it worth the hype? 

Looks wise- Yes. It’s the cutest drink I’ve ever received. 

Taste wise- Let’s just say I couldn’t get 3 sips down. 😂

It has a blue swirl, so when you stir it with your straw it changes colors and flavors. A cool idea. And a great way to cheer up your work week! I’m curious to know what y’all think. Let me know if you try it. 

Hope y’all are having a great week. 

XOXO,

Heart Shaped Pizza

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner… and it’s National Pizza Day! Two wonderful things. Now I just really want a pazookie in the heart-shaped pan to top it off. We’ve actually been trying to eat less carbs. I know, I know. So this pizza was made with a cauliflower crust & I put the recipe down below.

Also, my grandma MADE this beautiful apron for me, and I absolutely LOVE it. Isn’t it perfect? I told her she should sell these puppies because people would buy them. It even has pockets. I know! Also, I especially love the red and pink around Valentine’s Day.  Thank you to my sweet grandma for making this for me. I love her!

Crust

  • 1 Large Cauliflower
  • 3 Eggs

Toppings

  • 3/4 C tomato sauce
  • 2 C shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 C shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Lobster in Maine


Not only was it my first time in Maine, but it was my first time eating lobster!! Okay, we had some lobster on our honeymoon, but it was already cracked. I seriously didn’t even know it was so much work to get to the meat, so you can see why I was surprised when they brought over a bib and plate of tools. ? It wasn’t my fav food in the world, but I feel like it is part of the Maine experience. Plus, these little suckers are so photogenic. ? 

We saw the most photographed light house in the world in Portland, ME! Then we headed over to the Lobster Shack in Cape Elizabeth. And I’m so glad we got a lobster Christmas ornament before we left, so we will always remember our little Maine trip. 

Today, we explored Vermont! I didn’t get quite as many cool photos, but Vermont is absolutely breathtaking. The leaves are starting to change, we saw a black bear, we ate raspberry chocolate pancakes with legit maple syrup, and we visited Joseph Smith’s birthplace. It has been a beautiful day with family. 

Anyways, hope you’ve loved our photos! We are falling in love with this place.

Xoxo,
