Thoughtful Thursday

It's Thursday!!! Most importantly it's almost Friday. I finished my last exam of the semester on Tuesday. This means that I am officially free (excluding work) until January when the Spring semester starts. Since this is that last Thursday in November (I can't believe that December starts on Friday), I decided to post some funny quotes from Pinterest:

Peace & Blessings all!!! Have a great Thursday!

Fitness Tuesday

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Since it is Cyber Monday was yesterday, I though I would share some of the exercise clothes that I bought. For those of you who have been reading for a while, you know that most of my exercise clothing is Victoria's Secret. They had some great sales on exercise pants and sport bras. Here are the ones that I bought:

I am loving all the cut-outs and mesh on  the pants and tops right now. Some of these I wear to the gym but I also wear them on the weekends running errands and just running around. Off to finish studying for my last final of the semester (YAASSS!!!)

Peace & Blessings all!!! Has anyone else found some new exercise clothes or styles that they are loving lately

Thanksgiving sale buys

Hello all!!! I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday.  I know that everyone has posted about the sales and their Christmas gift guides/wish list. Not going to lie, I usually wait until the last minute to do my shopping. This year though, I started doing it are you ready for it EARLY. 
I bought a few of  the Old Navy items on Black Friday when they were 50% off with an additional 10% off. Others items like the one from Old Try I waited a day or so to decide how many prints I wanted. Here some of the items I bought during the last three days of sales:

50% off everything with code CYBER, free shipping, and an additional 10% off with the code TREAT

I knew I wanted this top when I saw the sleeves. I bought this shirt in the black and white in the regular length. Now, here is what I did not like: if you are tall like I am, then the regular ends up being too short in the sleeves and the length over the stomach. I would order in the tall if you are wanting sleeves.

I bought this turtleneck in these two colors plus the black one (which is sold out now). The one thing I like about these is that the sleeves are long enough. They are a little bit see-through so I would suggest wearing a tank underneath or a vest on top of the turtleneck.


I have been wanting to buy an Old Try print for years. This year, I finally bit the bullet and decided to get one since they were on sale. I bought the two prints (the pineapple one is sold out now) and the two pennants above. The Alabama pennant is a Christmas gift. The Georgia one is mine (no suppose there). I was also going to buy one of the Auburn prints for my friend who went there:

I have been debating whether to buy this one as well: 
What do you think???

40% off at checkout


I bought the dress and the classic button down a week ago when they had a 40% off sale. I ended up returning those two items yesterday after I made the mistake of going on Black Friday. The line was about 150 long so I decided to wait. I have been wearing the cardigan everyday since I bought it. It goes great with lounge clothes and with work items. 

The dress above is actually not the dress that I own. The one that I bought got sold out between Friday and last night. I returned it to the store due to it being too big. It was a swing dress and a large literally looked like a sack. I ordered a medium online so hopefully it will not be so baggy. The shirt below is the print of the that dress:

Outside of these items, I bought an electric wine opener and my mom some of her Christmas presents. I am probably going to finish the rest of my shopping in the next few day. Many of the items are on sale so this is a better time than any to go ahead and get everything.

Peace & Blessing all!!! I would love to know if any of you found great deal or sales this week.

Mini Cauliflower Pizza

Hello, all. Hard to believe that it is almost Christmas. I know that I have been super M.I.A for the last almost 2 weeks #lifehappens. I had a HUGE project and three papers due. So, I took a little break from the blog to get all my school things done. These days, I feel like I am taking one step forward and three back. I am still trying to figure out blog scheduling with work and school.

 Luckily, the semester will be over on the 29th. Lately, I have gotten back into cooking at home again. I think that has more to do with me wanting to save some money. Plus, I am that weirdo that enjoys going to the grocery store and walking around (I do not enjoy standing in long line though). One thing the I have been cooking a bit is cauliflower pizza.

The first time that is made the cauliflower pizza dough, it turned out horrible. I did the first part right but once you get to the squeezing out the water part of it a lot of it did not come out so the dough was super moist and tasted weird. This time though, I used a recipe (that I made some changes to) from The Kitchen on the Food Network. Marcela used broccoli tots to make pizza dough. I used rice cauliflower

I recommend this or the cauliflower tots since they are easy to cook and there is less water in them.

First I cooked the bag according to the directions range, I cooked mine for about 6 minutes. After taking it out the microwave, I pour it into a bowl and squeeze out any extra water in the rice. I then mix in black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and Italian seasoning to the rice. 

After nixing the spices in, I rolled the cauliflower in to bags (I ended making 24 of these). Once rolled, I flatted each one with a spoon to make a mini pizza shape.

Even though I have been cooking for years, I finally discovered the pre-cut cookie baking sheets parchment paper When I say they are a lifesaver when baking anything, I literally mean it. I have used these for cookies, the pizza, and some other items. After I flatten them, I cooked them for 20 minutes on 350 degrees.
After they are cooked, I then added topping on them. I did half cheese and the other half pepperoni and cheese. I cooked them again with the topping on them for another 12 minutes. 

They tasted really great. The cheese did get a little crispy (as you an see from the picture) but I personally like my topping a little more done than others. I would say to cook the pizza with the topping for a shorter time if you do not want the top to be crispy.

Peace and Blessing, all. Have a great Monday and I would love to hear whether any of you have eaten cauliflower pizza before or tried making it yourself.
