As an Arizona girl I love traveling within my own state when I get the chance. Recently we headed north to Sedona for a weekend away. This time I decided that although we can't help going to some touristy places, that the goal was to try to visit some more local places if we could as well along with going on a new hike. It was a fantastic trip and I'm excited to share where we stayed and what we did.
We stayed at The Ridge on Sedona Golf course in Oak Creek and the views were so beautiful. This resort was great especially if you have a family and plan on staying longer because they have kitchenettes and you can also get adjoining suites. There are two pools and two hot tubs and of course the golf course. The rooms are a little outdated - you may want to bring an iPad or something because they don't have smart TVs, but we didn't go to Sedona to just hang out in our room. We spent the whole time out and about, and because this is a short drive to Sedona (Oak creek is right outside) it was nice being away from the big crowds full of tourists. Plus, the views over the golf course were amazing!
I can't believe how fast the summer is flying by! June is almost over and then it will be soon be back to school season where I get super busy again. Sharing my recent empties with you and if I would repurchase or not. Some of these are the usual suspects that I will continue buying because they are my faves and in my daily routine!
Hey friends, it’s been a minute since I’ve been on here. This school year has gotten busy and the end of the year is always crazy with state testing. I finally have some time and decided to share my empties for the week and if I recommend repurchasing them or not.
First up is the protect + plump hydrating moisturizer from Tula. I love the pump and how good this feels on my face. I definitely took off the top to scrape as much product out as possible! I have not repurchased this yet because I’m trying their vitamin c moisturizer now but this one is definitely on my list to buy again!

Hey friends, welcome back to my weekly empties! I love sharing products with you that I have used and recommend and even those that I'm not sure I would purchase again. Most of the time they are beauty products but I may throw in a few others that I feel strongly about!

I am SO excited to say I am finally a TULA Brand Ambassador! I love TULA and have been ordering from them for a while now. My last empties post also included some of these same products because I seriously use them daily! The filter blurring primer is an every day item for me. I have this on auto order along with the sunscreen and facewash because they're just so good! I love the formula and how it really does blend in with your skin. I have been using Luna which is meant for fair to light skin tones, but I purchased First Light this next time - meant for all skin tones to see if there is a difference.
Hey friends, it's been a while since I've talked about teeth on here so I wanted to tell you about a new Smile Brilliant product I've been trying. I am one of those people that has consistently gone to the dentist twice a year since I was a kid. I really try to take care of my teeth especially because it's where my eyes are first drawn when talking to people. I've used their custom whitening tray system (blog post here) and their electric toothbrush (blog post here) as well so it's safe to say I'm a fan of Smile Brilliant products.

One of my friends at work asked me what is the thing you get excited to finish. Me being me, I said a really good meal. And when I asked her what hers was she said when she finishes a product, she just feels so accomplished that she finally finished an entire bottle. That got me thinking, that is something that I love doing and that’s something that I think that I want to start sharing. I’ve seen a few bloggers do it, and I want to talk to you guys about my empties and my review of the product. So I’m gonna share my empties and whether or not I would repurchase or go in a different direction.

This little toddler loves trying to help so I made sure to include her in my baking adventures today. Today we made chocolate chip - peanut butter - banana cookies [recipe here] and had so much fun.
Toddlers can be very messy in the kitchen so here are some of my tips and tricks:
I know tons of bloggers are putting out their prime day favorites but I wanted to join the party! I'm not actually looking for a lot for Prime Day but I wanted to share some of my favorites I already have and just some killer deals that you might be looking for!
There are so many tech deals right now but here are a few of my faves!
I love kitchen gadgets and here are some of my faves some I have and others are on my wish list!
Here are some of my other random favorites - these hangers are the best and 100% ordering more!

Apparently I'm on a cooking kick over here and wanted to share my zucchini enchilada recipe with you all! I saw someone make a version of these so decided to try it myself! The first time I made it with chicken, and then Nick requested beef so I made them again and tweaked the recipe a little. I like these better than the traditional style because although I love tortillas, I'm not a fan of the amount of them in enchiladas.
Hey everyone hope all is well! Being at home for the past month I've been testing out and modifying recipes to get more creative at home. We have a bag of frozen tilapia in the freezer so I figured why not make something with it! We like it hot and spicy over here so I decided on blackened tilapia with roasted veggies. Here is the simple recipe below!
