Happy weekend y’all! We are supposed to have some cooler weather this weekend in south Florida and I have to be honest…
I CAN’T WAIT! I actually miss sweaters and boots, and hot chocolate and warm bowls of soup. Which brings me to today’s post…
I love soup. I also love lasagna. So this week, I decided to make lasagna soup!
Two birds. One stone.
I already have a bunch of favorite soups including split pea, broccoli cheddar and miso. But this Vegetarian Lasagna soup might be my new favorite (I feel like I say this a lot…).
I’ve been feeling a little blah lately, and this soup definitely serves up some much needed comfort-food vibes. Oh, and did I mention you avoid all the hassle of making traditional baked lasagna.

I don’t know how I’ve managed to let almost two weeks slip by without checking in with y’all. Ugh.
Can I be honest?
I haven’t really felt like writing lately. Not sure why – blame the pregnancy exhaustion or just a sense of blahs. Who knows, but I’m trying not to let myself feel guilty about it. We all are allowed our blah days (or weeks in my case), and if I don’t feel like writing, I shouldn’t have to…

Did I scare you? 🙂 Teehee. Happy Halloween y’all! What does everyone have in store for this spooky holiday? And more importantly, what is everyone dressing up as??? I love seeing how creative people can get on Halloween, so please share!
I have to work all day. WOMP. WOMP. But it should be fun. I’m hoping clients come in dressed up. I plan on going as a deviled egg – pictures to come.

It’s been another busy weekend for me – Bryan and I went to the Pittsburgh Penguins hockey game Friday night down in Ft. Lauderdale, and I’ve also been dog sitting again. Meaning, I haven’t slept much and I miss my pups! I love dog sitting but the overnight stays can be a bit brutal for me – I don’t always sleep well at other people’s houses, and the dogs I’m watching are usually missing their mom and dad so they don’t always sleep well either. Making for a very grumpy (and sleep deprived) Mandy.

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.

Greetings from my new KING size Yogabed. That’s right, Bryan finally budged (after months of me whining) and got us a king size bed. It was our wedding gift for each other. And I must say, after just one night of sleeping on it, I’m in heaven!
Speaking of heaven, I have another Homemade Granola recipe for y’all to try. Yes, it’s very similar to my original recipe, but I did some tweaking and I like this one even better! This homemade granola could run circles around any store-bought brand. It’s also healthier. Duh. Oh, and let’s not forget versatile. You can play around with the mix-ins and spices to get just the flavor you want! It’s hard to beat homemade granola. Don’t you agree?

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…
