Hi y’all! I hope you had a nice weekend and your Tuesday is off to a good start.
What has everyone been up to? I’ve been doing a lot of pet sitting – this time of year tends to get busy for that! I also wrapped up my last week doing sea turtle surveys for the season. It was a bittersweet ending for me because the last month of surveys consisted of zero new nests and zero hatchlings – they were all washed out by Irma. Fortunately, the beaches are finally starting to look normal again, and we had a very successful season, regardless of how it ended.

One of my favorite things to do is to find delicious recipes and tweak them. I tweak them because: 1- I don’t have all of the ingredients on hand or 2- I don’t like all of the ingredients in the original recipe.
I found today’s recipe on Lexi’s Clean Kitchen and knew I had to try it, unfortunately I didn’t have all of the ingredients so…

Yesterday I made Homemade Pumpkin and Oatmeal Dog Treats for the pups…
Don’t they look excited? They loved them!
The recipe I used made a huge batch of treats and I didn’t want to make that many because I have little pups, so I only made half, leaving me with a lot of leftover pumpkin.

Hello! And happy Thursday y’all. This is my third and final Costa Rica post then it’s back to recipes…I promise! I have to be honest, I haven’t been cooking as much with Bryan gone. I’ve been making salads and a few frozen Amy’s meals (my fav).
Don’t judge me.
As I mentioned in the last post, our next and final stop was San Gerardo de Dota – a small town huddled up against the Talamanca Mountain Range that is a haven for birdwatchers and hikers – precisely why Bryan chose for it to be our final destination. There was one specific bird we were on the lookout for: the Quetzal, considered to be one of the most beautiful birds in the world…

After bidding farewell to Drake Bay, we took a boat, then a bus to Uvita. It was hot and I was miserable. But I was still on cloud 9 thinking about how excited I was to be engaged to such an incredible man.
The hotel we planned on staying at was closed, but we ended up finding a very eco-friendly and quant hippie hostel which was inundated with young, hippie (American) travelers. I fit right in. 🙂

I finally got most of the pictures from our trip to Costa Rica downloaded on my computer – after about an hour on the phone with Apple support (insert deep sigh here).
I’ve never been a very “technological person,” but I know how to upload photos from my camera or my iPhone, but something on my phone got switched so everything was going to iCloud. Yes, I know it’s 2017 and iCloud has been a thing for awhile now, but I’m old school and I love the idea of plugging my phone into my computer and BAM, there are all the photos.
When I came home from Costa Rica and plugged my phone in to my computer…
NO BAM. And NO photos.

Let me start today by saying Happy Father’s Day to all the hard-working dads out there-especially this guy.
My dad taught me to waterski, use a hammer, be independent and strong, work hard, be reliable, love the outdoors, never settle, and most importantly, to not take any shit from nobody. 🙂 I’m so lucky to call this man my dad.
