If we’re friends on social media, you may have seen that I recently turned 30! While it wasn’t a grand celebration, it was perfect!
The celebration started early with a road-trip from Houston to Biloxi, MS. There we spent a day and had a great time. But were mostly excited to continue our trip from Biloxi to Columbus Georgia and see my family.
It’s June! Can you believe it? Though this is one of our favorite months, it is also the busiest. We celebrate two birthdays and Father’s Day. Which can get a little hectic, especially when you are a true last minute shopper.
Luckily this year, I found a great Father’s Day gift for my husband. I am still working on his birthday gift, but I am glad to at least have taken care of one of two gifts. 😉 I always try to get him something unique, whether it’s something from his wish list or something I stumbled across. And giving him a JORD Watch a perfect and unique gift.
I was happy to be able to surprise him with this men’s watch by JORD Watches. Even though, my husband is a simple man with a relaxed style, a t-shirt and jeans kind of guy. When it comes to accessories watches are a must for him, which made this gift a little more special.

Luxury Wooden Watch
While this post was created in collaboration with JORD watches, opinions are my own.
I think we’re back to our normal schedule… So here’s another easy recipe! Taco Bowls with Old El Paso’s Taco Boats Flour Tortillas. I’ll be honest the first time I saw these, I thought’ “why not just use regular tortillas.” I bought them anyway because I had a crowd at home, and it seemed like the perfect quick meal to feed everyone. We liked them so much, that I have made a few variations since.
The one that I am sharing today is with ground beef. If you have visited my blog before, you know that I am all about delicious but quick meals. If this is your first time visiting, make sure to check out previous recipes. 😉 Now, on to the instructions…
Making the Taco Bowls
First, I set the rice to make. Then sautéed onions and jalapeños, mixed in beef and taco seasoning; cooking until browned. I lowered the heat and added the salsa, making sure to mix it well. Then, heated the taco boats according to the package instructions.

Chicken wings are a must have here at home. They’re super easy to make, so I make them about once a month. And they don’t need to be thawed out which is great. If I haven’t decided what to make for dinner on any given day, I can take these out of the freezer and have them ready in under an hour.
While browsing around Pinterest I found this Cajun Chicken Wings recipe and decided to give it a try. It was delicious by the way.
Is anyone else obsessed with the Peplum Trend?
I clearly am! It’s what I wore for Mother’s Day. While my husband had to work, he was up early to take our oldest out shopping with him. And they surprised me with breakfast in bed, flowers, chocolates and cards.
Since he had a night shift, this meant sleeping all day in order to be awake all night. Not a lot of fun, I know. But that didn’t stop us – the girls and I – from getting dressed and finding something to do. While we didn’t do anything grand, it was nice to take them out and hang out together.
