    Love your glam tootsies! I normally opt for a metallic dark blue (DIY version) but your orange ones look fab with your cute flip flops. Flip flops haven’t made it out of the closet though… Like this weeks menu & have already clicked on a couple of links. Have a healthy happy week,EA.

      Mine is totally a do it yourself version too Kellie :-) Dark metallic blue sounds like a fab choice, but, my toes were screaming for orange last week. Hope you have a happy healthy week too!!

    Love the orange toes!! ORange is definitely the in-color this season, and it’s great too because it just so happens to be the main color in my wedding :)

    I’m excited to check out these cucumber avocado summer rolls!

    I may have to try that kale Caesar salad – I’ve tried it a number of ways to get my husband to eat it and haven’t found a good way yet.

    I wish I could wear orange – looks terrible on me!

      Ann, if my non-veggie eating mom eats it, I bet your husband would eat it too :-) P.S. I can’t wear orange clothes either, but on the toes it looks divine!

    Your menu plan sounds absolutely delicious! I’m going to check out that Grilled Potato & Zucchini Caprese Salad–I love grilled potatoes. :)

    Ice cream sandwiches are one of the greatest desserts there is! Lately I have been using a Turquoise-ish color for my toes!

      Agree-SO good! And, turquoise might have to be my next color to try :-)

    So many great ideas! Thanks for the inspiration. My husband is going to be pretty excited when I make that pad see-ew; it’s his favorite. Love the orange toes, too (mine are a shade of blue called “Sky’s the Limit” right now). Summer is the perfect time to rock fun colors.

      Thank you!! Your husband definitely has good taste :-) {It’s one of my hubby’s favorite dishes too.} Your {sky} blue toes sound pretty too!

    My fav summer toe color is Cajun Shrimp by OPI…every year I kick off the season with a pedi and that color! Happy feet make a happy mom! :) Those ice cream sandwiches look DIVINE!!! I would be all over a whole tube! 😉 I’m glad you liked the salsa verde burger, was a hit here too. I love your weekly posts, so cool you do that! Happy rest of your week!

      Cajun shrimp toes? Sounds like a gorgeous shade of reddish, orangish, pink-must check that out! Your turkey burgers were delcious Teri. I find most Versions too dry, but the addition of salsa and egg really moistened these up. I hope you’re having a wonderful week too!

    Thank you for the dinner inspiration – just made the Pad See-Ew with zucchini (tis the season!) and shrimp – delish!! Love the orange tootsies and let me know how you like that Caprese Salad. Just got MORE zucchini, tomatoes & potatoes in this week’s CSA share – need to fire up the grill again :)

    Love those Julies too, as you know. Great menu. Without the kids I’m not menu planning, feels so weird.

    Orange toenails are my favorite! Great job on the kale salad, too. My kids would never go for it :(

    Love the orange toes….it has been my go-to toenail color this summer too! Love the focus on ‘happy things’! I am presently reading The How of Happiness–a great read. I actually LOVE the tower of terror even though it scares the heck out of me! Hope you are enjoying your summer–it sure sounds like it!

    Did I ever tell you I got to do quality assurance special project in Disneyland and California Adventures? It is still a project I can’t stop talking about, one of the best times of my life! I agree, it is a happy place for sure:-) I love those ice cream sandwiches, they sound delicious:-) Hugs, Terra

    People are still linking to our site from your mention of our Caprese salad! Thanks! BTW, I have orange toes now too. So sunny. And even at 8 months pregnant…I painted them myself. (Cuz the babysitter for the pedicure cancelled!)

    Thanks for sharing your favorite things – the orange pedicure is something that tickled my fantasy. Anyway, keep on posting. Your stuff is definitely something to read and wait for.

    Hey would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re working with?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different browsers and I must
    say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a reasonable price?
    Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!
