coastalgirlatheart 25 years ago...on March 5th 1989...in a tiny single engine airplane on what I thought was our way to Carmel Beach for lunch... We took a detour to see my husbands parents home from the air.. Little did I know on the side of their hilltop... Would be written the words.."Marry Me Marce" I was in complete shock. So much so, I didn't answer him until we landed, had lunch and walked around the beautiful rocks on the 17-Mile drive. He thought I was going to say no.. And I thought.."does he mean it!?!" One would gather yes if he took the time to write it on the side of a hilltop. But I was 19..! Haha! What did I know!?!Lol! Well March 5 this year marked our 25th engagement anniversary! We celebrated in Cabo! My first time there and I had an amazing time! Incredible food! Great music! Warmth!! And kind people! JUNE 17 marks our 25th Wedding Anni! Which we will be celebrating in the city of Love later this year! What a journey it's been! Ups n downs and everything in between! Thank You Fred Lemos for never giving up on us! I know I haven't! May the next 25 be filled with a culmination of seeing many dreams come true from years of work, trust in The Lord and lots of perseverance! Truly- many dreams have already come true by the things that matter THE MOST - out love, HIS love, family (our children!!) and a community of beautiful people who fill our lives to overflowing!! Here's to you hubs! Xoxoxox your wifey - Marcie #piccollage @toneitup @tonedupbeachbabe @karenakatrina #bikiniseries @emily_lemos18 #loveeatingclean #lifeisgoodinHim #faithfamilycareer #holdontohispromises #neverevergiveup 7d

coastalgirlatheart Super clean Duo-Delish cabbage salad! With mandarines, pistachios, peanuts, dates & figs! Seasoned with a little sesame oil-n-pure clean rice vinegar drizzle. one of my fav yummy parts of what I do to the "dressing" soak your chopped dates and figs in the juice of a couple freshly squeezed mandarines. Let it soak while you prep salad.. Then stir and mash to create a yummy juicy messy mix :) then toss with your salad. Add LOTS of chunky freshly grated pepper and sea salt. Sometimes I love to add a few dashes of cayenne for a nice kick!! Served tonight with grilled turkey patties.. But LOVE it best with my Thai peanut smokin chicken dish!! Haha!! Loved this Amazzzzzzing salad tonight! Must say! We are all addicted to this salad! #piccollage @karenakatrina @tonedupbeachbabe @toneitup #leancleanandgreen #tiucommunity #TIUMeals #bikiniseries #fitchicks #loveeatingclean 3w

coastalgirlatheart Thank you K&K for the top 5 fixes for today!! Great reminders to be mindful of ourselves.. To live on purpose and live out our intentions! I am posting those on my desk as a daily reminder to make conscious efforts to self care and not feel stuck if the day isn't going as I had hoped! It made ALL the difference for me today to get out with the doggies and enjoy some fabulous green hills and sunshine!! And jammed to Mandisa's it's a good morning song! Love it!! #TIUmembersemail @karenakatrina @toneitup 1mon

coastalgirlatheart Clean. Pure. Decadent. Organic. Whole food. Raw. Grain, Soy, Dairy, Gluten Free! That's whats happenin' with my latest creations!! I had the best time making these very special valentines treats for my sons beautiful girlfriend. She must eat by the S.C.D eating way. Grain free and No sugar or dairy. And none of the many ingredients most baked treats use. Pretty much she can eat fruit, veggies, meat and nuts, honey and pure almond or coconut milk. Today's confections were made of using only raw honey, coconut oil, pure vanilla, nuts and nut butters and sea salt! I thought of her with every step of every creation and truly added love-n-hugs to every drop. I even created a peanut butter Carmel! Sublime! I had tons of fun... And to hear how this made her feel was the greatest reward. I did not know this was her favorite holiday.. And that she missed being able to have a pretty box of chocolates! But I had a hunch that this gorgeous sweet lovely girl would love (and truly deserved) a beautiful box of decadent treats! It was sooo much fun to make for her!! And when she and my son returned from their dinner date- she had already finished every piece! LUV it! Looks like I'm in the alternative-candy making business now.. Haha!! @tonedupbeachbabe @toneitup @karenakatrina #tiuteam #tiumeals 2mon

coastalgirlatheart This is how we do "fast food" - didn't have anymore crock pot meals prepped and had been out all day.. Got home and wanted a solid meal.. But didn't want to spend too much time at the stove.. We do this "fast-food" often: take frozen skinless chicken breast straight from freezer. Place directly into baking dish. Cut up into eights: a lemon, large onion and sprinkle all over chicken in baking dish. Add mushrooms, red bell pepper, carrots, lots of garlic. Top with fresh rosemary, thyme and sage. Drizzle with olive oil. Add sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Sprinkle with garlic powder. Cover and bake at 425 for 45 mins. (While chicken is baking there's time to unload dishwasher, start a fire and prep a salad made of mixed greens tossed with a dressing made of olive oil, pure unfiltered apple-cider vinegar, Dijon, fresh garlic and salt-n-pepper. ) after chicken baked for 45 mins - remove lid, turn chicken and roast uncovered for another 20-25 mins. This will reduce liquid and brown everything nicely. Remove baking dish from oven. Chop up chicken while in baking dish and toss with all the roasted veggies and reduced sauce in dish. Spoon onto plates and serve with tossed salad. You can add some quinoa but this dish alone with salad is great! It's fast, super nutritious and a family pleasing meal!! #piccollage 3mon

coastalgirlatheart My FAV winter meal!! Make veggie broth with water, red bell peppers, onions, lots of garlic, carrots, celery, thyme, rosemary, sage, sea salt, pepper, a few dashes of curry. Simmer and hour. Add chicken simmer 2 hours. Add kale and simmer until al dente. Or when super busy- throw all in crock pot and cook all day. Top with freshly sliced green onions and cilantro if u LUV cilantro like I do ;) enjoy a healing, nutritious amazingly comforting soup! Happy 2014!! #piccollage 3mon

coastalgirlatheart My goodness.. What a week we've had so far...It all started Monday.. Pick my daughter up from school around 1 pm that day...she was supposed to have her first driving lesson..she gets in car and tells me she started having pain around 9am while at school but didn't want to miss her classes so she waited.. She sits in car and is immediately doubled over in pain, nauseated and had a fever.. We go home thinking maybe she had some sort of bug.. She doses off and about an hour or so later she wakes up in terrible pain and was burnin up. We go straight to urgent care.. We are there quite a while.. They send us to radiology.. Then home to wait... It felt so wrong driving home with her so sick.. But we had to wait for results...Next day we are to be at drs early.. He sends us for labs and to be home to wait.. Again. Meanwhile my Emily is in so much pain. And I'm beside myself! That night dr calls and says to be at surgeons office for consult first thing Wednesday morning.. He sees her and after brief exam immediately sends us to hospital for surgery.. Turns out she had a ruptured follicle on her right ovary which caused infectious fluids in her Lower abdomen causing all kinds if crazy yucky reactions.. Lymph glands swelled up around appendix.. Appendix is out now... She also had cyst over left ovary that was removed. This girl had a very unhappy lower half! What a week it's been... Surgery was successful and ended late afternoon yesterday..She's been recovering and we should go home by tonight.. To recoup at home for another week and then Christmas break..which will be much needed! And no sports for atleast 3-4 weeks..
Of course she ain't happy bout that... But At least season is over and high school soccer doesn't start til feb. She waited til season ended to let down! And boy did she! This mamas nerves are ready for a break too! So thankful to be on this side of it now! And so thankful it was all fixable!! Thank you everyone who had been praying for emily she will@be back to her ol self real soon!!
