Solomon’s Castle in Ona, FL was cool to walk the grounds and we got to eat inside of a boat, but the ATM ran out of money before we could pull cash out for a tour🤣 Dammit, you cash only place!!!
I get to see this cute face at work almost every day. ❤️ Free dog therapy! And there are two! The other is not as clingy. 🤣
Yulee Sugar Mill Ruins and Monkey Island are pretty close to each other in #homosassaflorida and they’re easy to get to and free...convenient since we had our dog.
Blue Mountain Vapor Cafe in Winter Haven, FL is a cool little shop where you can buy vape shit, game and drink beer/frapps/coffee❤️
Just a little stroll around Lake Howard in Winter Haven, FL😍
Such a funny little tourist trap that takes 5 minutes in Lake Wales, FL. Thought it would be more fun after drinks, but meh. At least we can check off another thing! Still an interesting illusion.
ABSOLUTELY LOVE MY NEW JOB!!! Got to tour the groves today, and here’s an orange tree that was struck by lightening. All the leaves fall off first, then the oranges just rot away. The office is small and incredibly fun, filled with laughter, but A LOT of work. We are a small but HUGE company. Every month we get catered Mexican food and the day before Thanksgiving, we have a Thanksgiving. December I’ll have 3 paid days for Xmas without using vacation days. Love the owner and my boss and everyone there. I can’t believe I got this lucky for my first big girl job!! To anyone afraid to relocate to fulfill a dream, just do it!!! It may take a bit, but if you put in the effort, you may be surprised! ❤️❤️ Theres even an adorable 74 year old woman who works the greenhouses and has been there for 40 years! At one point, she broke her leg and insisted on working, so she would hobble into the at the time fields and then crawl to each bush/tree.
What a beautiful place! Bok Tower in Lake Wales is a beautiful place to walk, I even got a little banana plant there. Notice how Dave hates taking pictures with me.
Keto pizza pocket! Dough and I fought. Boyfriend came into the kitchen and asked what kind of shit was in my hair. Dough covered everything...Including handles to drawers in my kitchen. It was an intense argument. It originally called for 4 balls of dough. The dough laughed in my face when I tried 4, so I slammed it all together and made one huge pocket that I will cut into 4 for us. Yes, I carved “WIN” into the dough, it’s barely visible after baking. Eff this thing!! Wanna challenge yourself? https://www.heyketomama.com/keto-fathead-pizza-pockets/
Cheesecake cups!! * 8 oz. cream cheese * 1 large egg * 1/2 tsp vanilla extract * 1/2 tsp lemon juice * 1 pinch salt * 1/4 cup erythritol sweetener Let cream cheese and egg come to room temp for at least 30 mins so your cupcakes don’t come out lumpy. Preheat oven to 350. Line cupcake tin with muffin cups. Also, don’t judge my holly berry muffin cups, it’s all I had!! Take room temperature cream cheese and beat it with an electric hand mixer or standing mixer until creamy. Add vanilla extract, lemon juice, egg and erythritol. Beat until all combined and fluffy. Spoon batter into muffin cups. I did a spoon in each cup first then went back and filled them almost to the top. Bake at 350°F for about 15-20 minutes. I took them out when they were sort of golden and puffed up. Sprinkled with a little more erythritol (I really hate spelling that word) . Let them cool in the refrigerator for about 24 hours. But if you’re too freakin eager, try freezing them. I’m a savage and let it cool in the fridge for 20 mins before I had to eat one and it was SO good. So mine caved in a little, I read it’s because of the quick temp change. Supposedly I should have left them out to cool first. 🤷🏽♀️ now they’re like little bowls. That’s okay though, me being the optimist will probably fill them a little with homemade whipped cream and maybe even a small slice of strawberry.
#fortpiercefl (2 hours away) when there’s supposed to be a tropical storm? 🤷🏽♀️ Just go with it and hope for the best. Refuse to let it rain on your parade! Take the adventures where you can get em. #learningfloridalife #blindcreekbeach
Bought this adding machine from 1912 for super cheap and it still works! It’s by our wine and alcohol so you guys can total up your tab when you come over! 🤣 jk But Lloyd’s Of Lakeland was so cool and they even had a macaw as old as I am upstairs!
Made these damn #chaffles that people kept talking about with my new Dash waffle maker. I’m so dramatic and extra with food...added a burger patty, 2 of my egg cups I previously made and cheese and avocado. Chaffle is 1/2 cup shredded cheddar and 2 eggs and seasoning. Divided it up to make two chaffs. Ate alone in bed like a person who has been foodless in a dark hole for months. Finished mountain, no regrets. All #keto , baby.
Well, here’s the before pic in Dec, which was the first day I made a realization that I was becoming an amoeba. Next pic is from 4 days ago, when I decided it’s time to knock that carb dust off my ass and get back into my workout routine and keto/low carb (not 100 I can commit to hardcore keto since I just moved to FL and now have all these new fricken restaurants everywhere, but here’s to trying). Day 4 of over an hour of working out and competing on my Apple Watch thanks to Jody, Amy and Lize. Keep on tryin to catch me, Im in beast mode right now! 🤣 The next comparison will be at least another ten pounds down. It WILL happen. 35 lost, 30 to go. Let’s forget I had Chinese and two egg rolls tonight. 🤷🏽♀️ sometimes I fail.
Was in the mood to do a fusion experiment. Two chicken breasts with lemon pepper, paprika and Maggie seasoning with 2 cups balsamic honey ginger rice. Little bit sweet, little bit spicy. Dipping sauce: Chick-Fil-A Polynesian. I really need to get a life here, you guys.
4 months without Beachbody and 4 months of subbing Beachbody with restaurants and dating carbs(it wasn’t a 1 night stand, it was a 4 month mini relationship that was unprotected and epicurally active nonstop!) and saying goodbye to friends. Day #1 back to the grind with BeachBody yoga and a brindle bastard obstacle named Frankie. Why do yoga with goats when I can do yoga with a dog for free?! 🙄 Never too late to start where you left off, ya’ll.
#ketoeggcups Got bored, went crazy. Made a lot. First time making them, I’m slow to the game! My friend, Amy made some and I wanted them. Sprayed 12 cup muffin pan with Pam. Mixed 13 eggs in a bowl with seasoning and a handful of shredded cheese. Put frozen broccoli and cut up lunchmeat in muffin pan. Threw in egg mix. Baked for 25 mins. Removed with fork carefully and let cool. Ate remnants of egg out of muffin pan because I’m a fat kid at heart.
First mini FL roadtrip! 🥰 Clearwater Beach, FL! Had a huge wave knock my bottoms half off but 🤷🏽♀️. Luckily there were just two guys drinking behind me, hopefully they were drunk enough that my ass was a blur. Ended the day with more Publix subs.
