Awesome Saturday!

Here are the highlights from an awesome Saturday with my mom!!

First we shopped, shopped and shopped! I.O. Metro store and their outlet, T.J.Max, Target, Warren's shoes, Francesca's, Bath and Body Works, Victoria Secret, and Sephora... Whew! I think I named them all! Speaking of Sephora...

I got some Tan Towels!! I can't wait to try these. I will let ya know how they work!


We ended our afternoon with a trip to BLISS Cupcakes Cafe!

I got one of these... Marshmellow Brownie.

And I one of these... Confetti Funfetti!

This place is DELICIOUS! And the scary part is, it is about a block from my Salon! I am already looking forward to returning back for more cupcakes!



For dinner, my Dad grilled hamburgers! While in NYC, mom and I ate this amazing spicy corn. I searched online for the recipe and found one that I think it pretty similar. So I made it to go with the burgers and it was really good!

Wanted to share the recipe with you just in case you might love corn and spice as much as I do! :)

  • Mexican style (Spicy) Corn on the cob
  • 4 ears corn on the cob, husked
  • mayonnaise
  • shredded parmesan cheese
  • cayenne pepper, depends on how hot you like it (to taste)
  • 1 piece bread (this is for ease of putting mayo on corn)

Directions

  1. 1
    Roast the corn on a charcoal grill just until tender and you have nice grill marks.
  2. 2
    Liberally spread mayo on piece of bread.
  3. 3
    Roll hot ears on the bread.
  4. 4
    Sprinkle parmesan cheese on.
  5. 5
    Sprinkle cayenne pepper on (to taste).
I hate that I didn't get to see my mom on Mother's Day. But we had such a great time today so we are just making this her Mother's Day! :)

I can't wait to see how those tan towels work! I have missed going to the tanning bed this year & am looking for something I can use to get my "base" tan! Let us know how they work for you! :)
P.S. Found your blog several months ago, but this is the first time I'm commenting! Love your blog! :)

Oh yes, let me know how those tan towels work. I am looking for something that doesn't turn your skin orange. Although the florida sun treats me well.

I am so happy that you are having a great time with your mom!!!

I missed my Mom on Mother's Day. But after 10 years living far away, I am used to it.

Happy Sunday!!!

My mom and me have used tan towels off and on for years now (ordered through QVC!!). The last time I bought them though, I turned orange. And even though I had put it on hours before bed, where my arms laid during the nite, I no longer had color! Like I said, I used to LOVE the tan towels, so I hope you have good luck with them! I just don't know if they changed the formula or what, but I hope they work for you like they used to for me! Good Luck, can't wait to hear!
