Jacqueline’s 2021 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

Happy Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  Shopping this sale is open to everyone who has a Nordstrom card- credit or debit. If you do not have a Nordstrom card you will be able to shop this sale Startomg July 28, 2021.  If you don’t know about this sale it is when Nordstrom puts new items on Sale- like new Fall items- and they are discounted.  It is a chance to get new pieces for the upcoming season, stock up on some basics and to treat yourself to some wardrobe staples and some fun items too.  I usually shop this sale every year and so many of you love when I share my top picks, so that is exactly what this blog is all about.  But this year, it feels a little different to me.  I have treated myself to a few new items lately – but part of me doesn’t want to buy anything new because I am not 💯 comfortable in my body.  I know I am not where I want to be weight wise yet, so I haven’t wanted to buy a lot of items in the size I am in now. But reality is, I do not have

Pesto Pasta

Pesto is one of my favorite foods…sauces…side dishes? 

I just love pesto.  When I started WW I knew I had to try and make my own pesto. A pesto that not only tasted really good, but that was a little lower in points and calories. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with enjoying regular pesto, but I wanted to create something that I can literally put on everything but not use all my points for pesto!  So I searched the WW app and found this pesto recipe! I tried it out and it was amazing BUT after making this a few times I made some tweaks which I think makes it extra perfect!  This pesto is great with pasta, on sandwiches, with zucchini noodles, chicken salads….I literally put this on everything and it’s so so good!  You can first toast the pine nuts on the stove until they are golden brown and it makes this pesto SO good, but I found that I just like to throw everything into the blender without toasting the pine nuts too and in my opinion, it’s a little quicker and tastes just as good!  This pesto is a great low-fat pesto that is low WW points and a lower-calorie pesto

Reopening of Disneyland April 30, 2021, after being closed for more than a year for COVID 19. 

The gates are finally open! After being closed for over a year, Disneyland is open again!!!!Disneyland closed on March 13, 2020, due to Covid 19, and the gates opened up again on April 30, 2021. Now, the happiness and magic we all needed are back in the world…even though the world still looks a little different. Kevin and I were able to be back in Disneyland for opening day which was truly a dream come true. A lot is different and changed in the parks. I have to say, with all the changes, new rules and yes, even with wearing masks, none of the magic was lost, gone, or missing.  Ticket and Reservation Information- (as of May 30, 2021) To enter the parks you need a few things: 1- a theme park ticket (discounted tickets available from GetAway Today) 2- you need to make a reservation for the park you wish to visit or start your day with a park hopping ticket 3- a valid CA ID/ proof of CA residency *as of now, only CA residents are allowed in the parks.  Disneyland will be open to everyone starting June 15, 2021 Theme park reservations will be

Chicken Stir Fry Recipe

Chicken Stir Fry with “Fried” Rice Recipe

I think this has to be one of my new favorite recipes and it is so so simple and easy to make!  What I love is not only is this recipe simple , but it’s delicious , full of flavor and super filling!  You can switch up the veggies, protein and sauces and have several “different” recipes.  Another way to mix things up is too add different fruits or nuts. Cashews are really good in this recipe too! Slightly toasting the rice in the pan is a game changer!  If you didn’t know I am in recovery from a Binge Eating disorder AND on WW trying to lose some weight. These two things are hard to do together, but I am making it work for me.  Part of my weight loss journey this time around, is really changing my relationship with food.  I am really focusing on eating foods I love, and not labeling foods “good or bad”.  Restricting certain foods is something I used to struggle with on my weight loss journey in the past.  When I was doing this alot it would eventually cause me to binge more.  Allowing myself to enjoy all foods and actually
