Getting Fit Friday

I've linked up today with Christina at Bunting, Books, and Bright Ideas for:

I was so excited when I saw this so I could share this wonderful black bean salad (or salsa) recipe! My mom emailed me this so I'm not sure where the original came from.. But it is an amazing summer time recipe. It's so fresh, clean and bright and would be a great addition to tacos or a taco salad. I usually eat it with just corn chips! It's something you can never just have one bite of, for sure.
I've never taken a picture of mine, but it should look similar to this! YUM!

What you need:
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 yellow pepper, diced
1/2 cup red or sweet onion, diced
1 can (15oz) corn, drained
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon cilantro
1/4 cup olive oil
4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon lime juice
1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained
S & P to taste
tortilla chips
1. In a bowl combine peppers, onion, corn, garlic and cilantro.
2. Add olive oil, vinegar, lime juice, salt and pepper to taste, and toss.
3. Add black beans, toss well and serve with tortilla chips.
 This is better when it can sit over night but if you don't have that option at least make it in the morning so it can settle together. The flavor is so amazing and addicting and best of all It's CLEAN!

So once again I'm blogging from the APP which doesn't let you hyperlink text.
Copy and paste? See you there!!

What I'm lovin' Wednesday

Woo hoo! It's finally summer but I still have zero time to accomplish anything.. How is that possible? 
I have found some time to squeeze in a fatty ice cream cake of course and believe me when I say it's way better than any store bought beauty you may buy. 

I can't take credit for this recipe but you can modify and make it anyway you want! I used cookie ice cream instead of vanilla and chocolate. I've also used mint before which is amazing. I drizzle with Carmel and more Oreos!! Find it at:

I'm also loving these lily pads from Last weekend in the ozarks we sat on this thing for literally 6 hours! Some day when I own a boat ;) I will own one!!

I'm obsessed with following sassyboutiquevb on IG they put together the sassiest (is that a word?) outfits. I. Want.them.ALL! Follow them now!

Molly at is hosting a mid-south meet up!! I'm not 100% in yet but I encourage everyone to email her if you are interested In joining the crew in Branson,MO. How fun!?

What I'm loving most about Wednesday is that Wednesdays are my bootcamp days! That means I pay someone to physically and mentally assault me. It's worth every dime. If you've never taken a challenge class before, you should! Mine are in 9 block sessions and they will make you sweat! Wish I had this to wear tonight! Funny huh?

And last but not least I'm working on opening my own online clothing boutique! I've got a name figured out but details are still being worked on. I've made my first wholesale purchase from and will be selling her lovely headbands first! I'm so excited. Check back in a few weeks for details how to purchase one and for a giveaway! Photo via CD

Enjoy the rest of your week!! We set up a new pool so you know where to find this gal. Now go link up:
