Serene Green

Happy Monday loves! Hope you had a great weekend. I have been extremely busy, but also having lots of fun. With spring and summer come lots of fun events and this time of year I tend to get very involved in planning spring teas and attending women's high tea events.  I had a great time last year with my Audrey Hepburn Breakfast at Tiffany's inspired High Tea. You can see photos from last year, by clicking here.   I have a few coming up that I am really  looking forward to and I will be sure to post lots of photos:-) In addition to being a sports mom and my work projects, I am very busy in women's ministry as well. There are not enough hours in the day, but doing things that bless other people is priceless.

I am loving the beautiful sunny days and looking forward to wearing my bright spring and summer colors. The outfit I am wearing is a very simple denim and classic white shirt with a bright kelly green colored bag and nude heels. Classic and chic with the shoes and bag as the punctuation marks in my outfit.

Don't you love pretty jewelry? I know I do

I love the way the green stands out against everything else

Feeling so good these days

Would you believe these shoes are actually comfy? I am big on shoes that don't hurt my feet. These are another shoe in my collection that are ok to wear for extended time without aching feet.

Beautiful flowers blooming everywhere. Another thing I love about spring

I can't wait to share with you all some of the projects I have been working on. Stay tuned!

Have a great day!

Tuna Croquettes

As much of a foodie as I am, I have to balance indulgent eating with healthy choices. Growing up I had my share of salmon croquettes with grits and biscuits. I still love all kinds of croquettes, but I have discovered a healthier way of cooking them.

I decided to try a paleo inspired recipe using tuna instead of salmon and the result is pretty delicious and very healthy and great if you are watching your carbs. These tuna croquettes can be pan fried or baked in a hot oven until crispy. There are no bread crumbs in this recipe, so they are completely low carb and gluten free, but full of great flavor. These also freeze well and make a quick meal if you add vegetable. I often pack them as snacks, but they make a great dinner with paired with a big green salad.

Start with canned tuna.You can also used canned salmon if you don't have tuna
a hint of lemon and a blend of spices adds perfect flavor


3 small cans of tuna (5 oz)
2 eggs
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup chopped green onion
1 teaspoon dried parsley
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste
Olive Oil or your favorite cooking oil 


Mix tuna, eggs and fresh lemon juice until well combined. Add the onion, parsley mustard and spices.When mixture is well mixed. Shape into patties. (this will make approximately 10)

Heat oil until hot and pan fry for 2-3 minutes on each side. If you prefer to bake the croquettes, oil a baking sheet and preheat oven to 425. Bake for approximately 10 minutes or until crispy and golden brown.

Bon Appetit!

Tangerine Splash

Hey Loves! Life is hectic. Projects, events and a bit of travel, but I'm not complaining. I have been promising new recipes and I have gotten some emails requesting more restaurant reviews and recipes, so I know its long overdue. I have been dining in some great places with friends and have some great reviews to share when I have a moment to post them. Thank you for your kind emails and for understanding why I haven't been posting as much. Life gets in the way sometimes.

I am wearing one of my favorite combinations. Orange and Neutrals with a hint of animal print from my scarf. The sweater I have on is thin enough to wear in spring and summer on cooler days. I love so many of the clothes at Zara.

One of my friends gave me a gift card the other day and it wasn't my birthday or a holiday, it is such a blessing when a person does something thoughtful just because. Guess what other great thing happened...I pulled out a purse last week that I hadn't worn since last year and it had some money in it. Don't you love when that happens? LOL

Did I mention that I really really really love coffee?

These pumps are so comfortable and I am all about a comfortable shoe. I try not to wear shoes that hurt my feet and a nude pump is so versatile.

Have a great week!
