Since the last time...

Hi lovelies,
 I finally have a some spare time to blog!!
It's incredible how fast time goes bye!!
We have a 3 day weekend this weekend so I actually had some free time ( I should be doing laundry or cleaning the house) and thought I'd catch you up on all things ...
 Simply Vega.

Traveling has been part of our life lately... 
OKC, Dallas, various cities for workshops for teachers.
One thing you should know about me when I travel, being comfortable is a MUST!!!

Usually my outfit consist of leggings, a comfortable shirt, oversized sweater and my Ugg boots (fall & winter) or my Yeezy's










K3 and I spend a lot of time together especially since I took a job at the preschool located on her school campus.

I love seeing her through out my day, it's the highlight of my work day when I get to see her sweet little face and love on her!






How could I NOT LOVE seeing this sweet girl during the day!!


Mr. V has taken on the responsibilities of taking the girl's to their medical dental, vision and all other appointments. I can't tell you how grateful I am for that man!!!
Nothing is sweeter than a Daddy & Daughter relationship.






Life has been extremely busy for us but some of our activities are coming to an end. I am looking forward to weekend's at home with my family. Fall is one of my favorite season's and I am thankful that the weather is finally starting to feel 
like Fall. Which mean's alot of time enjoying the beautiful fall weather!! We are preparing our firepit, tiki torches, cozy blankets and front porch for sitting and lot's of memories!


What awesome of the things you like to do during Fall? 

Here is another small glimpse inside my life...








Happy Fall lovelies!!!
I hope all is well in your life!!
Till next time!!

Friday Favorites - Sweet and Simple Edition...




Happy Friday, lovelies!!

Only 2 more Friday's left until SCHOOL STARTS!!!

Oh my goodness where did Summer go???

Like most Friday's I am linking with AndreaErika, and Narci to discuss our Friday Favorites!!
This week is short, sweet and simple. We are starting our back to school shopping and have been BUSY!! 
I will have some EXCITING news to share with you all next week so make sure you are checking back with me so you won't miss it!!!

Here are my Favorite's from this week:

POOL TIME

We found a little 15x48 pool for under $75 and set it up for the girl's and they are LOVING it!! We have been swimming early in the morning, night swimming and even swimming in the rain. Best money spent EVER on a small pool!! It is perfect for the three girl's! My girl's are mermaids, they would be in the water all day everyday if they could.






HYGIENE:

Here are my recent favorite item's in our bathroom right now..







BEAUTY:

I have been using Chanel bronzer for over 15 years and still LOVE it.
My nail shade is called Peach Cream & I love how it pops with my skin tone, it's a great summer shade that can easily transition into Fall ( Fall has been on my mind).



REAL LIFE:

Life has been extremely busy for me. We have been trying to get ready for back to school and with three girl's that tends to take a LONG time!! Football/Cheer season is about to start up and since I am the Cheer Ambassador and one of the coaches for one of the squads that has me tied up!! Not to mention my big news... that I'll share with you next week 😉
This is what my daily coffee has looked like....
I keep forgetting to add the COFFEE!!!



I hope you have fun plans for this weekend, lovelies!!

XO,
Malani

Thursday Treats... Easy Elote Mexican - Styled Street Corn





When I think of summer, a few different foods come to mind. There's juicy watermelon, bright red strawberries and cool refreshing Popsicles. But of course one of my all time favorite summer foods is also one of the most versatile and simplest: delicious corn on the cob. You have probably tried it with butter and salt but that can become a little boring. But thanks to this delicious recipe, you'll be able to add a little spice to an all time favorite!! Not only can Mexican corn on the cob made either on the grill or on the stove top but it's extremely simple!! Plus you can make this super simple and delicious side dish no matter the weather!!! Check out the recipe below, then try it out for yourself.

Homemade Easy Elote Mexican Styled Street Corn on the Cob



Ingredients:
  • 6 ears of corn
  • 1 cup of mayonnaise
  • Spray butter
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese or cotija cheese
  • chili powder or Cayenne pepper
  • 1 lime ( optional)
Instructions:
  1. Shuck your corn removing the husks and the silk strands, if using fresh corn. You can also use frozen corn as well.
  2. If barbecuing, place corn directly on grill and cook, rotating as dark spots appear. Cook until kernels have deepened in color and soften to touch ( about 10-12 minutes). NOTE: You can cook them on the stove ( I usually opt for this option) Put corn in pot with enough water to cover corn and bring to a boil, let boil for about 20 mins.
  3. Once corn is cooked remove from heat or water,
  4. Cover one corn on the cob at a time with spray butter, mayo, cheese and chili powder. Squeeze lime on top if you want to add a zest of citrus ( we usually skip this part and usually use lime wedges just for a garnish when we are hosting a meal).
  5. Then ENJOY!!!
What are some of your favorite ways to enjoy Corn on the Cob??

I can remember the first time I tried this Delicious recipe almost 20 years ago on a date, Mr. V and I were shopping and saw this street vendor and he ordered us three ( one for each of us and one more to share)  Elote Mexican Corn and I was instantly hooked!! Now we make them whenever we want and enjoy this simple and delish recipe as a family!!



Once you make this Delicious dish for yourself, let me know how you liked it in the comments!!

Happy Eating, lovelies

Lake Daze...





Hello lovelies!!


I have no idea how summer looks for you but for me it look like everything in these pictures below. Sunshine, water and family. 
It's all the best things rolled into one.  


Summer months having me dreaming a bit more.
 Truth be told, I really look forward to every moment spent with my family. Though I'm not one of those girls loving to spend every moment of their summer vacations planned nor am I the girl who likes to absolutely do nothing on their vacation. 
I'm the girl who likes to go with the flow day by day.
Swimming, having fun, laughing, family and being in the moment that's what defines the perfect Summer Vacation for me.



















What does Summer Vacation mean to you? Do you relax with no schedule or are you one who likes a planned scheduled?  Or are you the go with the flow kinda person, a little bit like myself? 
Whatever summer means to you I hope you are truly enjoying every moment of it!

Happy Monday, lovelies!!

Malani
