Costco Find-Mateo's Gourmet Salsa

I have another Costco find to share with you, this time it's Mateo's Gourmet Salsa.
It caught my eye on a recent trip so I took a chance and got it.  The list of all natural ingredients made me happy: Tomatoes, Water, JalapeƱo Peppers, Dehydrated Garlic, Salt, Cilantro, Red Wine Vinegar, Spices and Lemon Juice Concentrate.  I love that there's no oil and is only 10 calories for 2 tablespoons!  It is like really good restaurant salsa with just the right amount of spice.  We're already on our second jar of the stuff.

Mom's Garden Tour 2017

It was just a small tour this year of my mom's glorious gardens.
 For the last few years we've gone out to lunch with some friends and then come back to tour my mom's garden.  This year it was just Miss High School and me so we got a private tour.
 I don't remember the names of all the plants and flowers but I love taking pictures of them.
 This time I didn't have my big girl camera-just the Iphone.
 I still think I got some pretty images.



















That was a lot of photos! I hope you enjoyed the tour as much as we did!
Let's Keep In Touch!

Primark Finds For Your Dorm

Primark has been a great place to find fun home goods -- especially for dorm rooms.
Miss High School is going to a pre college program this summer and we lucked out shopping at Primark.  We found this adorable tassel storage cube, a set of microfiber cloths and trendy palm leaf shower curtain for her dorm this summer (and she can reuse them for college).
 Give me all the tassels!  You can't go wrong with stylish storage options.  She'll have a little kitchen so she'll be responsible for keeping it clean and microfiber cloths will come in handy.  I also found a flower crown for photo shoots.
I like how this shower curtain is packaged in its own little bag and comes with 12 hooks. She snagged these beaded sandals and has been wearing them a lot this summer already. Super cute!

Drugstore Makeup Testing Update

If you remember this post, back in March, I was still on the lookout for NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen.
 I finally got my hands on a tube thanks to my city dwelling daughter who has a NYX store. An entire NYX store, can you imagine?!
 These aren't the best photos but they're the best I've got.
I really like the color and the soft matte feel of the lipstick but it does tend to come off easily and leave me looking like I only have lip liner on(I don't own lip liner!) so I need to keep an eye on it and reapply.  Have you discovered any fun make up finds lately?

{Random} Wrapping Up May

Before I take you through some of the random things I did in May, I wanted to let you know that I'm guest posting today over at Not a Trophy Wife  my American Flag Jar Luminaries project.


 Go say hi to Laura for me, she recently had her site hacked and lost pretty much everything but she's come back even better than ever--and is still looking for guest bloggers if you can help her out!

 My second round of lilacs, they have slightly smaller blossoms but are extra fragrant.  You can smell them from the sidewalk!
 Spotting some pretty irises on our walk.
 Picking my niece up from the bus and heading to "our Starbucks" for a treat.
 Mother's Day flowers from the hubs.
 Going pattern crazy with the gift wrap.
 Off to a surprise party.
 Mother's day breakfast. I'm drinking coffee..or trying to..the mug was so heavy!
 After Miss H/S went to work on Mother's Day we spent the day together.
 Picking out flowers for my containers and garden is a Mother's Day tradition.
 Then we went for a walk.
 Ending the night with Mexican food with the family and a large margarita.
 When your photo shoot gets cancelled but you're near the mall and it's just opening....
 Trying on shoes at Primark.  I got them in black too!
 Discovering the best vegan ice cream I've tried so far....Nada Moo has some really fun flavors too.
Making an conscious effort to spend more time in our outdoor spaces.  
 Jazzzing up the front porch a bit too.
 Lots of rain forced me inside a Starbucks while Miss H/S was doing a school project at a local museum.  It was cold enough to have the fireplace on in May this day!
Getting some test prints done at a real photo lab. I was so happy with how they looked!
 Sending her off by herself to the big city to go visit her sister!
 Trying to show off my new clutch and this fancy coffee (but wish my nails looked better!).
 The cup was so pretty, I made it into a vase (used a glass inside) for some roses.
