Southern Eats – Snooze

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope y’all enjoyed time with your family and hopefully your pants aren’t much tighter today.

This post is LONG overdue but I still wanted to share it with y’all!

A couple of weeks ago Brandon and I checked out a new to Houston restaurant, Snooze. Snooze originated in Denver, Colorado and has slowly made it’s way south in California, Arizona, Austin and now Houston. Snooze sticks to what it knows best and that is breakfast. They are only open until 2pm so get there early. . .extra early on the weekends because the wait can be really long. The first time we went we sat at the bar instead of waiting 45 minutes for a table. If you have to wait and need some caffeine to make the wait bearable, have no fear they have a little coffee bar set up so you can fuel up.

The first time I went I ordered the Benny’s Duo which is awesome because you can pick two different eggs Benedict without an extra cost or without fear of picking which one you love more. I picked the Bella! Bella! Benny and the Chilaquiles Benedict. Both were AMAZING! I was able to mix my love for Italian flavors and Mexican flavors.

The second time we went I ordered the Breakfast Pot Pie which is by far my new FAVORITE breakfast plate. Let me describe this to you, they serve a perfectly cooked sunny side up egg on top of puff pastry smothered in their rosemary sausage gravy. Be still my heart!

If you have a Snooze near you, I would run there and order the breakfast pot pie. You won’t be disappointed.

What is your favorite breakfast item?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

What’s Up Wednesday!?!?

wuwquestions-edit

Once again I’m linking up with Mix and Match Mama, Sheaffer Told Me To and The Larson Lingo to share what has been going on the past month.

What We’re Eating This Week

After the Thanksgiving feast, it’s time to get back on the diet train. I found a TON of really good and healthy recipes on Skinnytaste. I printed off a bunch and will prep some of them over the weekend. I love how quick and easy they look. I’m most excited about the chicken enchilada soup especially since I can make it in my crockpot.

Everything you love about chicken enchiladas... in one big bowl! I love turning classic meals into soups, it's an easy (maybe even lazy) way to make a dish that only dirties one pot!

What I’m Reminiscing About

I’m still on my podcast kick but after seeing Adele in concert a few weeks ago I can’t stop listening to her albums on repeat. My favorite is One and Only.

What I’m Wearing

Over the weekend the high was in the mid 60’s so I busted our my faux fur vest (on MAJOR sale!) and couldn’t be happier . . . until Monday when the temperature spiked back up to 85. Womp Womp! Welcome to Houston!

What I’m Doing This Weekend

Spending the next few days with Brandon’s family and on Saturday we are going to watch a Christmas movie and decorate the house.

Friday Five

ONE

Over the weekend I had the opportunity to meet Nicole Curtis, from Rehab Addict at my local World Market. She was super sweet and as tiny as can be.

TWO

img_54281

A week after seeing Adele perform, I’m still listening to her daily on Spotify. If you get the chance to see her perform, I would jump at the opportunity. She was amazing and so funny or cheeky as the Brits would say.

THREE

A few weekends ago we went to Wurstfest for the first time in New Braunfuls. It was so much fun, except for the extra long drink lines and almost 90 degree day in November.

FOUR

I finished The Crown on Sunday and I couldn’t recommend it more. After watching it, I went on a deep research binge to learn as much as I can about the Queen.

FIVE

Beauty Haul – Gift Guide

Since I started to make my Christmas list I thought I would share a few items for you in case you were stumped on what to get someone on your list.

Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics

urban-decay

I have the original Naked palette from a million years ago which I still love and use often but sometimes Santa needs to upgrade you.

Stila Stay All Day, Sparkle All Night Liquid Lipstick

I’ve shared with y’all before how much I love the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick. It seriously stays all day even after eating or drinking. I would love some new everyday colors. This set is $39 and would make the perfect gift for the lipstick lovin’ girl in your life.

Lush Ocean Salt Body Scrub

Ocean Salt

Y’all know how much I LOVE Lush (I talked about it here and here) and since I’m currently out of my favorite scrub it makes sense to add it to my list.

Lush Eau Roma Water Toner

Eau Roma Water

I’ve heard some really good things about Lush’s Roma Water and I REALLY want to try it because of the amazing benefits.

What are some beauty items that you would love to have?

Beauty Haul – Sally’s Beauty

Happy Beauty Haul Day!

I’m going to make this short and sweet since there are bigger things going on in the world besides what you should try from Sally’s Beauty Supply.

As you know, I love finding quality items at a discounted price. Sally’s is always a go to for me when it comes to hair care. A couple of weeks ago I picked up a few items; new shampoo & conditioner, leave-in conditioner (use as a detangler) and their version of Moroccan oil.

Out of all of that, the only item I’m not impressed with is the leave-in conditioner but that could be that I try to use it as a detangler. This morning I only used 2 sprays and it left my hair feeling filmy. Maybe it will be better in the summer to protect my hair in the heat but I’m not sure.

The other item I love is their version of Moroccan oil! A TINY bit goes a long way. It helps my hair dry a little faster, makes it shiny and protects from the heat.

In case you were wondering, their blonde shampoo and conditioner works really well. It doesn’t make my hair brassy by any means.

What are your favorite products from Sally’s Beauty Supply?

Thanks for stopping by!
