Sunday Spotlight 4/13
I’m just back from a most wonderful vacation in Cancun, Mexico and the Riviera Maya. It was fun and relaxing, and I can’t wait to tell you all about it this week after I’ve unpacked and caught my breath. Until then, you can check out my photos on instagram.
For now, let’s move on to my Sunday Spotlight of current happenings. Not surprisingly, Mexico is still on my mind.
>> We had 2 flights each way with our toddler in our lap, so we were more than a little prepared:
I wasn’t taking any chances. The markers and candy were a big hit, but the games and movies on my phone definitely kept him occupied the longest.
>> While I thought I was pretty good about applying sunscreen frequently, we still got a little bit sunburned every day. I wonder if I’m buying the wrong stuff. So I want to know, do you have a favorite sunscreen?
>>Easter is right around the corner, can you believe it? Check out these No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies I created for Peanut Butter & Co. So easy and delicious!
>> Later this week I want to share a recipe inspired from my tropical sipping. So which do you like better— Margarita or Piña Colada?
>> Did you enjoy Pizza Week? Now that we’re back I’m excited to check out all the pizzas I missed this past week— like this Spring Berry Pizza with Arugula and Prosciutto from Foodie Crush, or this Lemon and Goat Cheese Pizza with Quinoa Crust from Cafe Johnsonia, or this Deep Dish Apple Pie Pizza from Canella Vita.
Also, check out my Raspberry Brie Dessert Pizza with Rosemary and Candied Pecans.
>> And finally, who else is excited for the return of Mad Men tonight??
That’s it for today! What’s on your mind this week?

I’m a big fan of Target brand sprayable sunscreen for the kids. For me, I tend to go with the oil free spray that smells like old school pina colada coppertone. I’m bad that way. Excited to hear how you liked Riviera Maya!
Also, pina colada flavors please.
Thanks Heidi! I was starting to think I hated sprayable sunscreen but maybe I just need to try a new brand.
We used to call those mud cookies! My best friend knew the recipe from memory and we would make them constantly at her house. Yours are way cuter, though, with the eggs.
I’m not sure about good sunscreen. I just lay it on an inch thick, wear a big hat and keep covered up as much as possible. Which I know is incredibly unhelpful when we’re talking about a beach vacation. Jealous.
Mud cookies, love the name!
Your trip looked so warm and relaxing! Welcome back. 🙂
I’m not sure I have a favorite brand, but I am a huge believer in reapplying often. I’ve been told it really doesn’t matter what SPF you have if it’s above 50 (I think?), and that reapplication is what is going to keep you from getting burned. Can’t wait to see more pictures!
I absolutely love Neutrogena. I hate how some sunscreens feel greasy and smells bad, but this one isn’t like that at all (for me)! I buy whichever spf I’d like, but usually stick with the higher spf ones. http://www.neutrogena.com/product/ultra+sheer-+dry-touch+sunscreen+broad+spectrum+spf+100-.do?sortby=ourPicks
