Egg Muffins.

Breakfast foods are the best. Can I get an amen?!

 Yet it's so easy to skip when we're in a rush. I'm guilty of waking up 10 minutes before needing to leave for work and only having enough time to throw clothes on and dash out of the door. So here's a simple recipe to do on those Sunday nights and you're set with your breakfast for that crazy week! You're welcome in advance ;)

Egg Muffins.

1/4 cup Shredded Cheese
4 Tomatoes 
1/2 cup Spinach
1 cup sliced ham (or 4 slices of turkey bacon)
12 egg whites

1. Preheat oven to 350*

2. Dice tomatoes, ham, & spinach
Some like to also add onions

3. Cover pan with non stick spray and add diced ingredients with cheese

4. Add egg whites to 1/3 from the top

5. Put in oven for 20-25 minutes. Wait until the top of the eggs are golden.
Let sit for 10-15 minutes

On those rushed mornings, throw them in the microwave for 30 seconds and you're good.
Don't compromise breakfast. 
You're worth it ;)

You should know, my mother who cringes when I say "it's healthy" when cooking even liked this recipe. 
That should speak volumes friends!

Adventures with Maxwell

Lets just get this out there!
I am the the stereotypical single twenty-something girl that posts too many pictures of her dog. 
I know it. You know it. We all know it.
Just embrace it my precious friends.

Over the weekend the weather was gorgeous, so I took my dog Max to San Marco. Which led to OneSpark (post here). And goodness! Funniest things ever!

  • We took the SkyWay that's jammed pack of people and I told a mother and daughter next to me, "I figured a dog would be my form of pepper spray." Please note how terrified he looks in the picture. I told them I should put Max on my lap like he's a lap dog (Max is a good 60 pounds or so) to make more room kidding around and they just looked at me like I was crazy. Not many get my humor.
  • There were people dressed up as human-sized carrots walking around OneSpark and Max was mortified and hid behind me.
  • Max brushed against a guy and the guy goes, "WOAH! Oh, it's a dog. I thought someone had really hairy legs."
  • At the Landing two gigantic great danes tried to jump him and he just stood there in shock. Oh, and he was scared of the water fountains. 
  • While waiting for the SkyWay, Max was laying on the ground as an intoxicated man continued to pet and talk to him like they were best friends. 
Max is a horrible guard dog.

Exploring Historic St. Augustine.

Long time no see my people! I've been MIA for a while but I'm back. Between 2+ jobs, online classes, and trying to squeeze in a social life, there leaves a very small slot of time for blogging. But with the free time I can I can get in, I'm trying to look for different places to discover in my area. 

Location: Historic St. Augustine
I've been to St. Augustine countless times aimlessly wondering up and down St. George Street and never explored some of the historic landmarks.

First Venue: Castillo de San Marcos Fort


Second Venue: St. Augustine Lighthouse and Museum

219 steps is a slight cardio workout.

Small, scenic trails included
