Coffee and a little Florida love!
Good morning beautiful people! It is time for a little Florida love and a big ol’ cup of coffee! You know I love it! Just one big mug, a little coffee creamer and spoon of coconut oil. Yup, if will keep you pretty! Spring is in the air! Grab a mug and visit a minute. I want to share some of my favorite Florida spring things with you.
Let’s set the mood, over coffee:
My lilies are blooming everywhere! I love the pop of color in the yard! Guess what else is blooming? Pineapples! I sent Coach M a picture yesterday, yes this one has her name on it! When it is ready a little Florida love will arrive in Chicago!
It is time for Spring training! I will admit I am not the biggest baseball fan but there is something fun about spring training. The weather is nice, the stands are packed and everyone is excited about a new season. The Detroit Tigers play in Polk County where I live and I had a chance to go to a game yesterday. Remember my Major League Scramble last week? Well I got to see my new golf friend pitch! Fun times! You should check out a spring training game in your area.
Spring fashion is in the air! Time to get a pedicure and let those toes air out ladies! Check out this blog post from Stitch Fix- 10 staples for your spring wardrobe. Me? I think I will try to add some colored pants to my collection. Why not? If you are ready to give Stitch Fix a try for yourself be sure to use my referral link! Thank you and happy styling!
Florida springs heat up quickly and the humidity can get stifling. What does this all equal? Chafing! Remember my 3 running wishes? Well, chafing problem is solved! Thanks to my running friend Holly, I found a new product that did the trick! I had the chance to use it last weekend for my back to back runs, not one problem. Not one stingy moment in 2 days! I am in love and I owe Holly a big hug and a margarita next time I see her! You can find Trail Toes on Amazon, easy peasy!
This Florida girl loves her state but it is heating up and running anything more than a 5K gets pretty tough. It is time to plan a destination run! I have 2 for you!
