Cabo Tease

I promise I have 3 or 4 posts planned regarding my trip to Cabo last week.  So worth the wait if only to drool at the photos of the resort we stayed at, Capella Pedregal.  

Fedora, Sunnies - old (similar to Fendi), Hoops - old (similar to TopShop), Linen shirt,  Nails: Essie Sand Tropez
 So hold tight.  Eye candy 'a comin'!
**So, I decided to post my pics on facebook.  It's just easier and I am lazy.  It is what it is. Feel free to friend me at facebook.com/frenchrum**

Rompin' Around

I am headed on a vacay to Cabo soon and I am looking for a white romper to literally romp around in on the beach and at my resort.  You know I love to compare so here are three versions at three different price points.  I like the Helmut Lang one best for style.  It's so relaxed and casual.  But obviously, I like the Bloomie's price.  The styles are so similar that it really makes it easy to be a bargain hunter.  

Which one do you like?

All Waffle Erthang

I have been itching to make these Cinnamon Roll Waffles for a while.  So in honor of my 10 pound weight loss (since April 7th), I thought I would take time out this Memorial Day Holiday to have a cheat meal.  And it was a good one - so worth it!


The Pillsbury dough w/ Cream Cheese Icing


Add to well sprayed Belgian Waffle maker.  Note my 21 Day Fix containers in the background.  I said this was a Cheat Meal!!!


Mine browned for 4 minutes


Make your drizzle according the recipe in the link above (you know, in the first paragraph)


Pour Drizzle over your Cinny Waffles and be amazed.  So good.  The hubs was highly impressed.  Of course, the little dude was all about them (only gave him half of one - he was sad)!

Grey Matters

I need a new Handbag.  It's been almost two years since I purchased a nice, lofty everyday bag.  I'm thinking grey.  The forerunners from below are the Tory Burch Amanda and the Liebeskind Satchel Vintage Helene.

21 Day Fix: Challenge Time

Last year, I started to finally focus on getting my weight in order.  It's been out of control especially after having a baby.  After about a sixth-month hiatus (in know, tsk, tsk) I'm back at it and starting up with Beachbody's 21day Fix.  I had great results with Slim in 6 so I'm pumped.  In 3 weeks you'll find some before and after photos on the blog showing my results.  Yesterday, I did the Total Body Cardio Fix workout. It was almost 30 minutes long and it was great.  I feel a tad sore today but not so much that I'm miserable or need Advil.  But that's also probably b/c I had to do the modifier on some of the moves, ha!  I'm also learning about eating clean and portion control.


I like that you get a (quick) break between the exercises so you can mentally prepare yourself to push through.  I burned over 300 calories!  Keep in mind, that out of shape people like me tend to burn more calories at first.  Which is good for me as I know I'll see some quick results.



I'm also starting a Facebook Challenge group on April 21st for anyone who wants to get it in gear for the #SummerSlimdown!  Follow me at CoachCamilleC for info.  

So again, stay tuned b/c in three short weeks I will share my results from drinking Shakeology (which I love, btw) once a day and using the 21day Fix program.  Am I going to be in a bikini, no, but I will be holding my head higher and wearing some of my pre-baby clothes (finally...after almost two years...)!

Another Weekend

I attended a super fun wedding this past Saturday with my husband.  My dear friend was married to her long time-friend and now love (they have known each other since Kindergarten)!  After some torrential rain and lots of prayers for our lives while driving to the venue, we were able to relax and enjoy Michelle & Justin's wedding.  I was even able to capture a double rainbow outside right after the ceremony.  Talk about special!  It was such a fun, joyous and loved-filled evening that I had to share pics. 

Rainbows in McKinney, TX
Loved their photo booth (winksmilepics.com).

So I thought everyone was going to make a funny face... brats!
The besties with the bride.  Lovely!
My man was a party pooper - he didn't want to use any of the props.  Dress: J.Crew bought last year - been waiting for the occasion to wear it (and fit it!) (similar here and here)
Follow me on Instagram for more pics.

In Translation

When you have a little one who starts repeating everything you say, you have a lot of fun.  First, it's a hoot when they start talking and they have these little high-pitched voices (Dax's is actually pretty deep for a baby but still...).  What is even more fun is trying to decipher what they say on their own, when they are not repeating you.  Just for kicks and giggles I have made a list of a few words from my 19 month old's current vocabulary and corresponding English language translation (capitals and repeat letters/vowels are for emphasis).


Dax
Actual Word
Notes
Sawee             
Sorry
His favorite word.  His inflection is on point.   Very cute.
Orrwish  
Orange
His favorite color.
Amiyo
Amarillo
The Spanish word for Yellow.  He won't say Yellow.
NYE NYE
Night Night
He tells me this before bed, loudly and very gruntily.
Rayad
Red
Gotta love that extra syllable he uses.
Effunt
Elephant
His favorite animal.
Eeyore
Ear
Not to be confused with the Winnie-the-Pooh character.
Amen
Amen
Perfect pronunciation.  Loves his prayers.
TishWishishasha
Miss Patricia
His favorite teacher.  Again, very cute.
DaDaDaddyDaddy
Daddy
He really loves his dad.
(Silence)
Mommy
He loves me too but he just won't say it.

Two-way

Beauty shot aka obligatory car selfie

Makeup highlights {BB cream (Pond's in Light), mascara (Lancome), gloss (Smashbox)}; dress (Felicity & Coco), jacket (similar), bag (Reed Krakoff - same style but fuchsia is sold out), heels (similar), hair elastic, earrings (similar)
First, apologies for the crappy photos.  My plus one was complaining about having to find the DSLR so I told him my phone was fine.  Now I can move on.  This past Saturday, my aforementioned significant other and I celebrated our 6th Wedding Anniversary with dinner at Nola Grille in Frisco.  The food was yummy, the company was great :-) and my dress was awesome.  I don't buy a ton of new clothes these days (you know, waiting to lose weight, blah blah) but I was determined to find a great new dress for our Anniversary.  The hubs deserves to see me in a dress at least once a year, right?  So I ordered this dress from Nordie's, crossed my fingers and prayed it would work.  It did, with the help of some (also new and surprisingly comfy) Spanx and a super cool two-way zipper.  I had a really nice and special dinner with my man and managed to feel pretty so it was a good night.
