Keep Smiling!

Hi Dolls,

They say "the prettiest girls are the happiest"...well I'm getting there.  This thing called life has so many ups and downs, twists and turns but through it all, I've been determined to never let anything dull my sparkle!  So with that being said, I continue to smile through everything, the good, the bad, and the homely (LOL) and  you dolls should always do the same!  
This off the shoulder blouse is definitely something to smile about!  I stalked it on Shein for months before I finally decided to purchase it!  It took for what seemed like forever to get to me but now that I have my hands on it, I know it will be a longtime favorite!
Today is November 1st and I am so eager to pull out the boots and coats but oh Florida, Florida, Florida!  It just won't let my fall/winter wardrobe be great with temps still reaching the high 80's.
I can see dressing this top up and down.  This particular day I met up with a friend for lunch so I kept it casual by adding a pair of skinny jeans and bright pumps.  I received tons of compliments on the top!
This post may be all over the place but I'm sure it speaks to someone.  It's speaking to me as I type it.  A quote comes to mind as I'm going through a few things right now and I want to encourage others who may come across this post...
Your past is gone.  Your mistakes are behind you.  Focus on your gorgeous unmarked, love-filled future.  The only thing you are responsible for now is taking each step with intention.  Rebuild your life.  Make it gold."  - Cara Alwill Leyba

Firstwatch Breakfast with My Besties!

Hi Dolls, 

What is better than breakfast or brunch with your besties after a sleepover?  Nothing!  I know!  That is exactly what happened when my college roomies and myself met up for the weekend recently!  Sidenote:  I am so glad these chicas were my roomies in college!  We became the best of friends then and our friendships are still going strong!  Love these girls!
I had been wanting to try FirstWatch for breakfast since one opened in Jax a few years back and I never got the opportunity.  While visiting my friend Maribel in Ocala,  she suggested we go to the one there for breakfast and I was all in!  I believe there are two kinds of people in this world...those who only eat breakfast in the morning and those who can eat a pancake and a side of bacon and eggs for dinner!  I'm the latter!  I love breakfast and the funny part about it is that I don't have it often.  It's probably because the kind of breakfast I typically want is not the kind of breakfast I have time to make in the mornings before work but trust me, if I had time to make a french toast, eggs benedict, and salmon croquette kind of breakfast daily, I certainly would!  Anywho, I digress.  Here is what we had.
  I had the Belgian waffle with a side of bacon and eggs.  It was exactly what I was hoping for.  Nothing more and nothing less. It was nice and fluffy on the inside and very filling.  I was hoping for fuller strips of bacon because....come on, bacon!  It was satisfying nevertheless.
My friend Renee had the Bacato omelet that is made with bacon, of course, Monterrey cheese, and avocado.  She got potatoes and an English muffin on the side.  She loved it!
Bel got the pecan pancake with eggs and a side of turkey sausage.  The pancake was huge!  It was just about the size of the plate.  Needless to say, she didn't finish it.  I tried to help but was already full from my own meal.  I had to taste the pancake though and it was fluffy and perfectly made with just the right amount of pecans.

It's always good times when I'm around my friends!  It's an even better time when food is involved.  FirstWatch definitely met my expectations!  They are only open through lunch so you have to plan accordingly but the food is certainly worth a visit.  Oh and they sell healthy smoothies too!  As always thanks so much for stopping by!
