Veggie Ranch Pizza

I am about to introduce you to your new favorite pizza. Crescent Rolls, Cream Cheese Ranch Mixture, Veggies, and tons of cheese = the best pizza ever. My mom made this while I was home last week and I remembered just how darn good it was. This pizza is always a hit with kids and adults. For those of you attending Sterling's Birthday party next week it will be served:) You can use any veggies you have on hand but the ones listed below are what my family normally uses. The original recipe doesn't call for olives or onions but I think they give the pizza great flavor so we always add them. If you are feeling extra lazy and don't want to cut up veggies you can buy a bag of the broccoli slaw and use that instead. But it really is better if you chop the veggies. Enjoy, I think you will love this tasty spin on pizza.

2 (8 ounce) packages refrigerated crescent rolls
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup mayonnaise
1 (1 ounce) package dry Ranch-style dressing mix
1 cup fresh broccoli, chopped
1/2 cup sliced red onion
1 cup chopped cauliflower
1 cup shredded carrots
handful sliced green olives
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (I usually add more)

1.Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
2.Roll out the crescent roll dough onto a 9x13 inch baking sheet, and pinch together edges to form the pizza crust.
3.Bake crust for 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Once finished cooking, remove crust from oven and let cool 15 minutes without removing it from the baking sheet.
4.In a small mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, mayonnaise, and dry Ranch dressing. Spread the mixture over the cooled crust. Arrange broccoli, cauliflower, shredded carrots, onions, green olives and Cheddar cheese over the cream cheese layer.
5.Bake at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.

Thoughts For Friday

TGIF.  This weekend we have lots of fun stuff going on.  My parents are in town, Matt is in a fishing tournament and we have a party Saturday afternoon.  

On Tuesday night we had our girl's supper club.  We usually rotate houses but decided during the Summer just to meet out somewhere.  We tried out Barsa and loved it.  All the tapas were delicious and this was the best paella I have ever had.  A great spot for wine and nibbles.  I loved their outdoor patio area where we ate.
They also had a very tasty cheese and meat platter where you choose what cheeses and meats you prefer.
What I wore:

Who else is hooked to the Bachelorette?  I love JoJo and think she is so cute.  Her hair always looks so perfect. 
Who are y'all pulling for Robbie or Jordan.  I feel pretty sure she will chose Jordan he has seemed like her favorite from the beginning.  I feel like if she chooses him though it won't last.

I found the cutest red dress at Madewell now on sale.  Size down as it runs on the large side, I am in a size XS.  It is a great dress for now and into Fall.  
Available  HERE and HERE

The kids and I hit up Citadel Mall this week.  Every time I go there I am amazed it is still open, it is the saddest mall ever.  I still don't understand why Charleston doesn't have a good mall.  The only redeeming aspect is the photo booth.  We had a blast taking pictures.

Last night we had dinner over at my parent's place since they were in town.  We love the deck at their condo.  The marsh view is so pretty.

Outfit Details: 
My off shoulder blouse is currently 40% off, no code needed.  I am wearing a size small.
I have been very diligent about my diet all week.  I have been working on post where I will share a sample menu of what I have been eating.  The main things I have tried to avoid are processed foods and carbs.  Last night we made our favorite cauliflower tacos and used lettuce instead of flour shells.  They were actually so good wrapped in lettuce I didn't even miss the shells.
Next I want to try out cauliflower nachos.  These look amazing.

I have been on a major reading kick lately.  Below are a few books I have read over the past few months.  For the most part they are all pretty light and easy Summer reads. The Nightingale was heavy but such a good story.  Any recommendations of what to read next?


I have been kind of obsessed with taking videos of the kids lately.  I feel like they are growing up so fast and I want to remember these sweet ages.  Lately Frances Moon keeps telling me she is not a baby and I had to record it.
Don't miss out on the Serena and Lily Tent Sale!  Everything is 40-75% off.  Scroll through to see my favorites.  There are some really awesome deals on bedding especially.

Have a great weekend!

Asparagus Caprese Salad + My 4 Dress Options for Dinner En Blanc

Summer salads make me giddy.  This one is super easy and full of crazy good flavors.  I love fresh mozzarella on anything.  If you follow me on instastories you saw that I served this salad with a roast chicken and cauliflower rice for dinner last night.  I am basically obsessed with cauliflower rice these days- the kids not so much.   If you wanted a vegetarian meal you could skip the chicken or even serve this over quinoa and/or lettuce for a heartier salad. 
This is best served room temperature.

|| A S P A R A G U S   C A P R E S E   S A L A D ||

- 1 bunch asparagus
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
- small mozzarella balls, halved
- 1/2 cup pesto
- fresh basil
- olive oil

Wash asparagus and trim ends off.  Spread on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Roast at 350 degrees 15 minutes.

In a bowl toss, tomatoes, mozzarella and pesto together.  I added a little olive to loosen up the pesto.  

Remove asparagus to platter and scoop the tomato mozzarella salad over the top.  Sprinkle with fresh basil. 

** I used store bought pesto but homemade is always so much better

I mentioned before that on Thursday I am attending the Dinner en Blanc here in Charleston.  I wanted to share the 4 dresses that I considered for the event.  I am pretty sure I have made up my mind and will share Thursday what I am wearing so follow along on instagram (@snoopnattynat) as I will be posting from the party:) 

Also for the next 2 days Baublebar is having a big sale and many Spring styles are on major sale.
I have these in the blush color and love them!  
Drop Earrings- only $24 now

Favorite White Jeans + A Few Beauty and Food Products to Try

I posted this picture on instagarm last night but apparently after some software updates on Instagram and the actual links did not show up for some people, so I wanted to share on here.  

These jeans are by my new favorite jeans company McGuire Jeans.  I have two pairs of their blue jeans that I love, so I recently ordered these white ones and they rock!   As far as white jeans go these are awesome they have plenty of stretch, run TTS, are super comfy and not see thru.   The end of the jeans is slightly frayed which I like.  I have washed them and they still fit perfectly.   

The jeans also come in a short version that I am tempted to try out.

The blouse I am wearing is from a line called Hatch.   I recently went to a trunk show here featuring their line and fell in love with it.  It is created for women to wear before, during and after pregnancy.  Don't get any ideas I am certainly not pregnant but I do like loose fitting tops.  The fit is amazing and the blouse comes in blush and black as well.  Anyone of you pregnant mamas you should check out the line.  I hated spending money on ugly maternity clothes.  This line is awesome because it is not maternity so it still looks super cute post baby as well.  Pure genius if you ask me.  It honestly kind of made me want to be pregnant again the clothes are so cute.  You can shop the whole collection here
 I am wearing the white, but you can see the other two colors below:)

I have been hitting up Trader Joe's quite frequently lately.  I love that place, each time I go I find new things I love.  Currently I am obsessed with the pickled cauliflower.  It is crazy good.  I could eat that entire jar in one sitting.  I just went yesterday and bought 4 jars!
Matt and I also love the truffled mushroom ravioli.  If you like a truffle flavor this is amazing.  We serve it with Rao's marinera and fresh parmesan and it makes a wonderful meal.
Also excellent is the Hatch Green Chili Mac and Cheese.  When we get tired of our beloved Stoffers we eat this:)
I love a sweet nibble after a meal and these are perfect for that.  They are super thin and super tasty.  just beware it is easy to eat the whole container they are so thin!   

When I went to Dallas last month for our blog conference I met with a beauty company called Colleen Rothschild.   I like to try products out for a bit before I mention them on my blog.   I have been using the clarifying detox mask now for a little over a month and really love it.    It is made with activated charcoal and French Clay.  It really helps even out skin tone and your pores.  When you put it on it tingles a bit and then feels really tight.  After I rinse it off my skin feels so amazing.  I use this 1-2 times a week.  It is currently on sale for $36, which compared to many other masks I have used is a great price point and it lasts forever.  I have hardly put a dent in mine.  
I like to use this cream after my mask.  I have super dry skin and this feels so good.  It is super moisturizing and when you wake up in the morning your skin feels so smooth and refreshed.

I recently went to a Trish McEvoy make-up event and purchased a few products.  
I am loving the lipstick and eyeliner I bought.  I bought the lipstick in the color Flirt.  It is a great color for everyday or night.  It is such a flattering shade of pink not too light or dark.  Right now at Nordstrom they are offering a gift with purchase too if you spend $75.
I bought the gel eyeliner in the navy color.  The rep showed me how to do a smokey eye with it for a nighttime look and a thiner line for the day.  It is super easy to apply and goes on smoothly.  I really like the navy for something different, it makes your eyes pop.

Thoughts For Thursday

A few random thoughts today.  

Stopped in one of my favorite Charleston boutiques this week, Beckett Boutique.  So many gorgeous pieces.  I always love browsing at their new arrivals.

Still dreaming about this gorgeous maxi.

I had lunch with girlfriends at the Pickled Palette this week.  Such a cute spot.  Everything was super fresh and yummy. 

The pimento cheese was so good.  I also had the vegan sandwich and loved it.

What I wore:
I love this tee shirt dress- I also own it in the tee version as well.

New song obsession.  One Republic- Let's Hurt Tonight.  Download it, you will love it.

Also totally obsessed with James Arthur.  Say you Wont Let go is always on repeat in my car.

Outfit Planning.

This cutie had his last tennis match of the season.
So very proud of him and his school team.

Favorite workout gear.
This tank top is the best, not too fitted and the perfect length.  

I have tried out both Beautycounter new face masks and I really like them.  I prefer the plumping one though to the brightening one.  My skin felt so amazing after I used it.  Totally refreshed and smooth.  I highly recommend it. 

Loft is offering 40% off everything.  I recently bought this off shoulder blouse.  I loved the floral print and tie sleeve detail.

Thanks to my friend Megan, I am totally obsessed with Cauliflower rice now.  I have been buying the bags at Trader Joes.  We had it for dinner this week with roast chicken and veggies and I have been having it in the morning with a little Parmesan cheese, an egg and veggie sausage.  

Thursday vibes.
