GOMO sounded like a plan to my little FOMO soul. Currently I am in Nantahala, NC doing some fun things. In honor of a new year of life, here is what else I have planned this year as part of getting in the GOMO habit!
What will you do to help combat FOMO and get in the habit of GOMO? Do you ever use Eventbrite to find or plan events?
Hope y'all have a great weekend!
Eventbrite did not compensate me monetarily for this post, but may repost to their social media. All opinions are my own, I promise! Remember the Blue Apron post?

Holy Cow! Sweet Potato Beignets with foie gras fondue, duck debris & chicory coffee ganache yum!

|They don't face the gulf, but who cares, prefect view!|
|The kids played this game. What do you call this?|
|I was sporting my Feathered Nest Boutique custom Lilly Pulitzer patch visor. Thanks, Christina for the info on it!|
|We had a fun fun dinner at the Gulf with the kiddos! This place is awesome and must bathe in money! Good food, great drinks, awesome view and open for kiddos to run!|

Hello, Hi, How are you? Happy Friday! It has been a long week and I hope everyone's weekend is just as long! Linking up with Amanda for Friday Favorites and Tif for High five for Friday!
My boss is leaving and we had a lovely happy hour for her last night at Cellar Door. Her replacement is my work bestie, how lucky am I? We sure are going to miss the boss as she moves on to bigger and better things!

|Anne's beautiful waterfront backyard!|
|My plate. I tried to keep it low carb, but I had to try my own pasta salad (it needed more dressing) and I cannot pass up my grandma's squash casserole and any time there is jambalaya!|
|My cute grandma supervising cornhole. Do y'all all call it that?|
|Cute second cousin Pam brought sugar cookies and supplies for the kiddos to decorate cookies!|
|PaCalvin, my great grandpa. He would have loved to see his legacy today!|
|One of the last times we had a reunion, I am guessing this was about 32 years ago judging by how old I look in the center.|
|You know it was well attended, this is just my grandma's family! We were just missing 4 grandchildren, got all her kids and great grandchildren!|
Hope everyone is having a painless Monday! How was your weekend?
P.S. This is my 200th post! Good Lord time flies!

Have you heard of the Chili Tecnology Mattress topper? I was complaining about how hot I am when I sleep (Window units + 90% humidity equals misery) and my friend Laura said she and her fiance tried this. It sounds like a miracle, but a bit pricey. Have you heard of it or tried it?
these saltine crack ice cream sandwiches look? I am totally making these for my family vacation at the beach for Fourth of July, the kids and adults alike will love them! Pin it here! Smitten Kitchen is the best!

A year ago I was in Puerto Rico. I was visiting my best friend Aimee in San Juan because she is a lucky lady and gets to go there for work on their dime. It was such a cathartic trip and so life changing. I want to go back so bad! And you, dear reader, get to reap the benefits, this blog and my so so much fun guide to San Juan, Puerto Rico!

Rachael Ray to the rescue (caramelized onion and roasted garlic sauce with chicken sausage and shirataki noodles)
I hit a week when I was broke and needed to use the things in my fridge. I had the chicken sausage and some shiritaki noodles leftover from forgetting to put them in the paleo pho I made. I was going to just make some sort of buffalo sauce concoction with carrots and celery, and then lo and behold I forgot that all the ingredients for it were not at the house. I had to resort to Pinterest in a pinch.
I am a fool for caramelized onions. I am also a fool for garlic, especially when it is roasted. Enter this Rachael Ray recipe for caramelized onion and roasted garlic sauce with chicken or turkey sausage. It yelled at me to make it! I had every ingredient and it sounded amazing. It was very delicious, but my sausage was not a match for it. The sauce by itself was great but Italian flavored sausage is a must to meld the amazing flavors. Rachael makes her own sausage in the original recipe. If you are feeling ambitious do that and let me know how it was! If not,just get Italian flavored chicken or turkey sausage and you will not be disappointed. Full recipe after the montage.
|This is looking too good to be true! Although with heavy cream and butter I guess it is!|

|Lillie loves her new yard!|
Saturday I did platform again and kicked my ass. I had to make room for a full day. We had plans to go to Kenton's for the Derby and then continue the fun after for the Magazine Street Champagne stroll. Serious fun ensued.
|They had a special menu for the Derby. |
