A VLOG. And discussion of large balls.

It's happened again.  A vlog.
I'm linking up with Erin and Ashley for the girl behind the blog link up, talking about what I need to get through the day!

I once again notice how incredibly huge my teeth look in vlogs, and I just really don't understand.  I mean, I had braces 3 times, so I'm glad they are huge and straight.  But still, it's a little unnerving.

Another weird thing that's extra large? My tonsils.
Seriously, every time I go to the doctor (and I've been to my fair share) the first thing they say is
"Wow. You have huge tonsils."
How do you respond to that? Thank you? I'm sorry?
Last time it happened I look at the doctor and just asked, "Are you flirting with me?"
It was definitely a first ;)

Since we're talking about large balls,
I'm off to carve a pumpkin.
I know I'm a little late, but since we have no friends down here we were kind of skipping over the holiday...but Dom's parents are visiting and bought us a pumpkin, so I'm determined to be festive.
In the meantime, here's my video.
Sorry I'm so awkward.
And sorry I got off topic and started talking about large balls.

How I Met Your Father

I know I'm a day late for this link-up, but I just couldn't get it together in time!
But, talking about my honey is my favorite topic so better late than never.

1. Tell us about how and when you met your love and what attracted you most to him.
Dom and I met while we were studying abroad in Sydney, Australia.  The funniest part is that at first, I wasn't interested at all!  We barely knew each other, and I took his quietness for being cocky, and didn't give him a second thought.  Then, at the end of our semester I happened to go to Fiji with him and we've been together ever since!  The things that attracted me most to him were his kindness, sincerity, and the fact that he always kept his word.  I know those seem random, but they really stuck out to me, especially compared with past relationships.  Oh, and he's a cutie too. :)
 2. Show us the very first {or one of the first} pictures you guys ever took together. {Feel free to show us more than one}
This is the first picture taken of us...but we weren't dating yet! 
 {St. Patrick's Day 2010}
And this is our first (ish) after we got together
  
3. Tell us some of your favorite memories that you two had together.

SO MANY. Especially since we were long distance for 2 years, we spent all the time we had together making great memories! Obviously, our time in Fiji is a favorite, since it's where it all began!  Also, little things like traveling to NY for his fraternity formals was always so fun, and same when he'd come to DC for me!  We spent a week out in Montauk right after I graduated college, and that will always be marked as one of (if not the) best week of my life.  We were together, just us, for a whole week.  It was a first, and it was heaven!  Since college, I love spending holidays with him and our families, and most recently our last week spent traveling all around Europe! Now that we're living together, my favorite moments are on the couch with wine and X-factor.  Anytime we're together is a wonderful memory!

4. Tell us your favorite qualities about this man, what makes him "the one."

Dom is so loving, kind, always knows what to do, honest, smart, driven, cuddly (don't tell), goofy, selfless and sincere. One time he drove 7 hours both ways to visit me in DC for one night. I could go on and on about all the reasons I love him! Oh, and he cooks and cleans too :) 
 
5. Tell us what your "date nights" typically look like.

When we were in school we had a place in each city.  We had a favorite sushi spot in Georgetown we always went to when he visited me, and our favorite date spot is Chocolate and Vines, a chocolate and wine bar in Rochester.  We would always go there to escape the fraternity house!  Now our date nights consist of cooking dinner and wine while watching our shows.  If we're feeling wild we will go downtown for a drink our two somewhere outside, but we're saving money now so we keep it simple!

Euro Trip 2012 Sneak Peek!

Hello strangers!
We are back in the States and it feels so good. Except the jet-lag.  That one's making me a little loopy.
We had an absolutely amazing time abroad, but it feels incredible to be back in the sunshine and sleep in my own bed.  We came home to Dom's parents who will be visiting for the week, and I can't tell you how good it felt to come home to dinner cooking and his parents waiting in the driveway-drinks in hand!
Because of that, I might be a little flaky on my blog posts this week since we'll be out enjoying our lack of Sandy down here.
So for now, you get a sneak peek of our trip!  Full recaps to come (whether you like it or not! ;))



And yes, there will be a "My boyfriend tried to kill me on vacation" post...

The ABCs of Me!

Yep, totally jacked this from Erin. But it looks too fun to pass up! The weirdest thing is how many answers I didn't have to change. Twins, I tell ya.
A- Accent you wish you had
Australian, duh!

B- Baking or Cooking?
Cooking, definitely. I like baking, but I'm gluten free so it gets depressing.

C- Can't Get Enough.....
Dresses or Pizza

D- Drink you can't go without
Mt Dew! It's my crack.


E-Emotion you get when those Hallmark commercials come on
Awwwww! Yep, I'm one of those.

F-Fictional Character you relate to
Lily from How I Met Your Mother.   I just started watching the show but I feel like she reacts the exact way to things as I would! I also wish I was half as gorgeous as Alyson Hannigan!

G-Guilty Pleasure
Any type of fruity candy, bad T.V., going the whole day without getting out of my pjs.



H- Hometown
Syracuse


I- Ice Cream Flavor
Mint Chocolate Chip

J- Jumpstart Go To (aka how you get your day started)
Breakfast and reading blogs :) Even when I had to be at work at 6:30 I'd make time!

K- Keepsake Item
I'm very sentimental, I have so many things! But I'm nowhere near hoarder level so don't worry.  I'd say my favorite keepsake is a post-it Dom left on my computer 2+ years ago after the first time he visited me in D.C. It's still taped to the computer!

L- Life Verse(s)

M-Memory that makes you smile
Everything about Fiji and Australia. The first time Dom said "I love you." The feeling of seeing my parents after being away at college

N- Non-fiction writer you want to have dinner with
KELLE HAMPTON.

O- Opulent Item You Want (something that is way out of your price range)
A yacht. I was born to be on the water. :)



P-Pattern You Love
Polka dots and chevron! I've always loved dots but I'd make my entire life chevron if I could.

Q- Quirk You Have
I can't digest if I'm tilted to the left.  I NEED to be slightly tilted to the right and I definitely have to sleep on my right.  My doctors have no idea why! 

Also, I always sneeze 8-17 times.
R- Relaxing Spot
Pool or porch swing.

S- Snow or Sun?
Sun, definitely! Not a snow person...

T- TV show you miss
Friends! I'm partial to The O.C. too.

U- Unique Fact About You
I've never broken a bone!



V- Valentine's Day ...big deal or not?
Yes and no! When we were long distance we always made it a point to be together for it, even if it required a lot of travel.  It wasn't the day so much as an excuse to see each other! Now that we live together I can see us celebrating it as a fun sweet day, but I'd never expect anything extravagant!

W- What's Your Love Language?
I think it's a tie between Words of Affirmation and Physical Touch.

X- X-Factor Song You Would Sing 
"Come on over"- Xtina.

Y- Yoga or Not?
Sure! It makes me feel all stretchy. But I mostly like it because I'm wearing cute workout clothes and the lights are dim.

Z- Zealous Dream You Have
For Dom and me to write the healthy gluten free cookbook we always joke about! we even have the name picked out. And it rhymes. BAM.

Gluten-Free Fish Tacos with Avocado Lime Sauce


We made these for dinner the other night, and delicious does not even begin to describe them!
Just the fact that they were fried was good enough for me, since being gluten free forbids me from devouring fried crunchy goodness.
While it's great for the waistline, a little juicy fried crunch is good for the soul!
At least, I like to think so.
Plus, the sauce? Absolutely heavenly.  It has the most delicious blend of avocado and lime, with a slight tang of the sour cream.
We ate the left over sauce on everything and it was just as yummy!
Let's get started...


Ingredients:
Serves 2 people

For Fish-

  • 1 fillet tilapia
  • Vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs (may need more depending on how think you want the breading)
  • 3 cups Gluten free bread crumbs (may need more, see above)
  • Oregano
  • Paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
 For Sauce-
  • 2 avocados
  • 2 "whopping" tbs sour cream
  • 1 tsp plain yogurt (we used Greek)
  • 1 jalapeno
  • A few pinches cilantro, roughly a tablespoon
  • Juice from 2 limes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
2-4 Corn tortillas

 Directions
Fish:
  1. In a bowl, mix gluten free bread crumbs, oregano, paprika and salt and pepper until the breading has the flavor you like
  2.  In a separate bowl, beat the 2 eggs
  3. Cut fish into small strips (about 2-3 inches long, 1/2 inch wide)
  4. Place fish strips in breading bowl first. It will help the egg cling to it.  Make sure the strip is coated.
  5. Transfer fish from breading bowl into egg bowl, coating completely.  Return to breading bowl and coat completely. Repeat Steps 4 and 5 until the coating is your desired thickness.  We did 2 or 3. Repeat for all fish strips.
  6. Deep fry fish strips in saucepan filled with about 2-3 inches of vegetable oil
  7. Set on paper towel to cool
Sauce:
  1.  Mix all ingredients in a small food processor. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  2. If you do not have a food processor- mash avocados, chop cilantro and jalapeno, mix thoroughly until the sauce has a smooth consistency.
 Place fish strips in the corn tortilla, top with sauce and salsa (optional) and enjoy!

Kaitlyn's Guilt Free and Gluten Free Pizza

If you really knew me you would know I am hopelessly and completely addicted to pizza. It's the one food I could eat all day every day and never get sick of.  It was seriously depressing when I became gluten-free and had to limit my pizza intake to the cardboard pizzas that are available gluten free.  Enter Kaitlyn! This recipe is makes my pizza binges gluten free, and guilt free
Just try not to eat your computer, okay?
***
Hey Everyone! I'm Kaitlyn and I usually blog over at Wifessionals. Robin was kind enough to invite me over here to share with you one of my most favorite and surprising recipes.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust.

I know, I know, you may think this sounds kind of weird, but I am telling you, it's amazing. It only has about 140 calories per 2 pieces of pizza. Packaged crust at the store usually has around 300. The other notable thing is that I swear you will not be able to tell that it isn't bread!!! My hubby was super skeptical, but after I made this, he would rather have cauliflower crust than thin crust from the grocery store.

So just trust me and try this and you won't have to feel guilty when you're craving pizza anymore - because this will basically make your pizza pig-outs, carb-free.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Cut your florets off your head of cauliflower and place in a food processor. I have a small one, so I usually can only do 5-6 florets at a time. Pulse until the cauliflower looks like grains of rice. Don't over pulse.

It will look like this when you are done. Put a large pot on the stove and fill it with about an inch of water. Once you bring the water to a boil, add your "rice" and cover the pot with a lid. Immediately turn the heat down to medium low or else your pot will over flow!!! 

Cook it for 4 minutes and then drain the "rice" in a fine mesh strainer. Transfer your cauliflower to a dry, clean, thin cotton dishtowel. Wring out any excess water. Be careful, I usually wait a few minutes so I don't burn my hands. This step is so important. If you don't wring out the majority of the water then your crust won't hold together and you'll end up eating it with a fork. Once you do this it will look something like the picture above.

Transfer the cauliflower to a large bowl and mix in 1/4 cup of "1/3 less fat" cream cheese, a generous handful of mozzarella cheese, 3 tablespoons of parmesan cheese, 1 beaten egg, 1 teaspoon of thyme, 1 teaspoon of fennel and 2 cloves of garlic. Mix extremely well. Take a pan and line it with parchment paper. Do not skip this step! You can use a round pizza pan like I did or even a cookie sheet. Press out your dough to it's desired size and thickness. Don't worry, it doesn't feel like normal dough...It will bake up though!!!! Bake in your oven for 35 minutes until golden brown and crispy (above).

Now it's time for your toppings...you can just drizzle olive oil and use basil, tomatoes and cheese....We've done a Greek inspired pie one time...Or you can just go crazy like we did on this one and add everything you find in your fridge - the choice is yours!!! Once you've loaded up your crust, return it to the oven for 10 more minutes and enjoy!

Drool....

I am telling you - this crust will blow your mind! Thanks again Robin for having me. The card for this recipe is below!

My Sister From Another Mister

Is it weird to discover you have a twin who lives a million states away and you've never met?
Maybe.
But that's exactly how I feel about the super amazing person about to take over my blog today! It's meeting people like Erin that makes the blog world so great! :) I'm obsessed with her, and you're about to be too! Especially after you read reason 1. DUH. ;)

***
Hey everyone! I'm Erin and I blog over at Love, Fun and Football. I started blogging in September 2011, chronicling our newlywed lives. I'm a Midwest girl working a dream job that sometimes isn't all that dreamy; a girl who's completely addicted to eating Mexican food; and a girl who tries to stay positive even in the most craptastic situations (easier said than done, amiright?!)

That's me and my cute hubby!

Robin is pretty awesome, and I hope you won't be mad at her that she let little ole' ME steal her blog today. And before you click out of here because it's "just another guest post" .... please at least let me give you a few reasons to check out my blog.

1. I'm friends with Robin. No, really. Just because I'm from Ohio, she's from Florida and we've never been within 1,000 miles of each other-- we're friends. She's one of the sweetest gals I've met through blogging, and is always cracking me up. I'd like to think she thinks SOMEWHAT similarly about me, since she let me on her blog and all. ;) So, if you like Robin, you'll like me. (Fingers crossed... please, please, please!)


2. I like to keep it real. My blog is all about ME, my silly life, the ups the downs, the good and the bad. Too often I find blogs that I just can't relate to, their lives seem too "perfect" and I can promise you that you won't find that on my blog. From walking out of hair appointments, to holding a lion on our honeymoon, from trying to make a dream a reality, to just every day life as a newlywed--- it's ALL here. :)

Just keepin' it real ;)

3. I ♥ Football, like...a lot. Now this could be good OR bad, but I'm hoping Robin has some football lovin' gals that follow along because I LOVE meeting other football fans. Keeps the competition fun and the smack-talk going strong ;) Plus, who doesn't like tailgate food recipes?!


4. I want to meet you! I've only been blogging about a year, and it's amazing the friendships I have formed, the girls I've shared stories with, the things I've learned..... So many things that blogging has made possible in just one year, it truly amazes me! I absolutely love getting comments from readers who have been with me since I started, and readers that just found my blog yesterday. The blogging community continually amazes me, and I hope you'll be a part of it too!

Definitely thought I'd have more reasons for you to visit, but sadly, I'm out of 'em. That sometimes dreamy job? It's calling my name.... gotta' go make that cash! Thanks for taking a few minutes out of your day to read what my blog is all about. And thank you Robin for sharing your blog! Love ya!

 ***
Obsessed yet? I knew you would be. Go fall in love with her as much as I have!!

I'm not even a chili person, but this one was lighter, so flavorful and spicy. I love it!

So, since today is Dom's 23rd birthday (I'm not a cougar anymore!) I figured it would be the perfect time to share it with you all. :)

The Dos and Don'ts of Backpacking through Europe! Oh, and stunning pictures!

 I seriously almost drooled looking at this post.  Warning: You might feel an extreme need to buy a ticket to Europe after reading this! Lucky for you, you'll be prepared :)

***

Hello Sunshine Diary Readers! I'm Leanne. And I blog over at Simply Beautiful.
I'm so excited to be guest posting for Robin today while she is off on her European adventure! I'm totes jealous, though. I'd much rather be trekking through Europe right now too :( But since I can't be with Robin in Europe, I thought I'd take care of my European blues and tell you all about some of my very own experiences in Europe! If you knew me in real life, then you would know that I am absolutely in love with Europe, even more specifically, London and the UK.
It's a history fascination + love of culture + love of travel, all compiled into one great love affair with Europe. I'm unashamedly obsessed and my obsession began way back in high school when I got to go on a 10 day whirlwind adventure through Europe with my history class. I knew right then and there, in my little 16 year old heart, that I had fallen in love with London and Europe and I made a solemn vow to go back again one day. So I did... It took 4 more years of patiently waiting for the right opportunity, but it happened! And this time, I didn't just go for a visit, I got to live in Europe. More specifically...Salzburg, Austria!
{Where my Sound of Music lovers at?!}
My university offered many study abroad programs, but the program with Salzburg College captured my heart...
I left American soil in January and came back to America in May of that year a completely different person. Like Robin has said she'll always have a part of her heart in Australia, I've definitely left a part of my heart in Europe. I've now visited 9 different countries and over 25 different cities and I've seen more of Europe than most people ever see in a lifetime. I got to re-visit many cities again since I had gone when I was in high school and nothing is better than going back to a foreign city and remembering your previous adventures there!
We began our semester out by spending a week in Germany visiting many historic cities. {Frankford. Cologne. Bonn. The Rhine Valley. Heidelberg. Rothenburg. Worms. Nuremberg.}
I literally traveled every single weekend to a new city/country. I learned to love trains, planes, and cabs. {Innsbruck, Austria. Venice, Italy. Lucerne, Switzerland. Munich, Germany.}
I fell in love with my precious host family, Gerhard & Margo.
The scenery in Salzburg captivated my heart. The hills really are alive over there...
I made amazing, lifelong friends and unforgettable memories with them.
I studied under Austrian professors who gave me a new world perspective. You begin to view the World Wars a bit differently when you learn from the "losing" side. I learned first-hand the horrors of Nazi Concentration Camps. There is no way I'll ever forget that day. The world is a whole lot bigger than we think...
I took an Austrian cuisine class and discovered that there is not an Austrian food I dislike.
I took German and tried to speak their beautiful, er interesting, language.
But, one of the best things Salzburg College did was give their students a 2 week "spring break" to just go and explore. And that I did, my friends.
I took a backpack, 1 pair of jeans, my camera, some money, and a few friends and we found ourselves all over that beautiful continent. So, I thought I would share with you all...
The Do's & Don't's of Backpacking Through Europe Grab some coffee, your travel planner, and an adventurous spirit... And let's explore together! Ready? Let's do this! PS - I hope you love pictures :) When in Rome...Do take pictures in front of the Colosseum! Don't take pictures with the gladiators. You'll be out 50 Euros.
Do take a tour inside of the Colosseum. It is worth every penny! Don't forget to take a tour of the Roman Ruins/Forum. Uh-Mazing!
  Do eat gelato every day while in Italy. Don't get the same flavor. Mix it up each time. They're all so good!
Do stay in hostels with breakfast. It makes it easy to pack lunches (for free) ;) Don't expect to find cheap food and don't spend a lot on food. You're backpacking! Spend your time (and money) on making memories :)
Do make wishes in the Trevi Fountain. Don't be offended by all the people making out around it.
Do get lost a few times. It's worth getting off the beaten path. Don't forget to take a journal to write about your adventures. I'll never give up this treasure of mine.
Do sit out at night, under the Colosseum. It's breathtaking. Don't sit on the Spanish Steps at night. They try to sell you "cheap" roses. All 150 of those creepy Italian men.
Do take a tour of the Vatican City. Don't be late for that tour, or you'll take pictures like this...
Do take pictures inside the Sistine Chapel. Don't get caught.
Do go to Florence and be amazed by Tuscany, Italy. Don't get lost in their huge street market. You'll wonder where all your money went.
Do stop in Pisa, if only to take this picture. It's worth it. 
Don't wait for the area to open. Hop the fence early in the morning ;)
DO go to Cinque Terra, Italy! Please, promise me you will! It is beauty like none other. Then, don't forget to breathe.
When the paths between the 5 villages are closed due to landslides, DO hike them anyway. Don't die. And then treat yourself to gelato afterwards.
Do make a stop in the South of France. Don't forget to treat yourself to some beautiful beach time. And crepes.
Do visit the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. Don't forget that the Picasso Museum is closed on Mondays :(
Do eat weird foods in Spain. Don't be afraid to try new things.
Do visit Dublin, Ireland! Don't forget to do it on St. Patrick's Day :)
Do go to London. Don't forget to see The Phantom of the Opera in the original theater with the original props (Her Majesty's Theater)
Do see Windsor Castle, the Queen's favorite home. It's amazing! Don't forget to take pictures like this while you're there...
Do go and contemplate the mystery of Stonehenge. Don't forget that it really is in the middle of nowhere, so don't step in cow poop.
Do go visit Oxford. Don't forget to find all the Harry Potter buildings :)
Do visit Buckingham Palace. It's fit for royalty. Don't get in the way when they're changing the guard.
Do visit the Towers of London. Don't touch the Crown Jewels. Seriously. You'll go to jail.
Do walk Tower Bridge at night. Don't mistake this bridge for the London Bridge. People will laugh at you.
When meeting up with your family & taking an overnight train to Paris, DO get a sleeper car. Don't mistake their 6 person sleeper car for actually being "large."
Do visit the Louvre. Don't try and see it all at once. You could seriously spend all day in there.
Do visit Versailles. It's magical. Don't get lost. Seriously. It's bigger than the Louvre -- Over 700 rooms to be exact.
Do show your friends & family all the sights you love in grand ol' Pair-ee. Don't forget to spend most of the time at the top of the Eiffel Tower. No matter how windy ;)
Do eat Nutella crepes under the Eiffel Tower at night. Don't forget to stay and watch it sparkle.
Well that's all I have, friends.
The point is to just go! And make memories!
Just travel the world for yourself. Find what's beautiful and never forget it.
Laugh at your mistakes and the language barriers. 
Fight through lines and break the rules sometimes.
I promise, it is all worth it.
Thanks for stopping by and reading today!
I'd love to meet you & hear about your own adventures.
So hop on over and visit sometime! :)
