Sun Hat Roundup

It's definitely pool time in our part of the world, and I could not be more grateful!  I live for days lounging by the pool with a cocktail and good book.  It's my happy place.  This past weekend I had some girlfriends join me at my house for a day of brunch, CAbi shopping in my living room, and an afternoon by the pool.  It was one of the best days!  I, however, had some requests to borrow a hat, and I offered up the two sun hats I had, which got me thinking that I want a big floppy hat.  I have two straw fedora hats, one with a short brim and one with a wider brim, but I think I need a big floppy hat next.  We are planning a vacation to Hawaii in June, and I NEED one, right?!  :)  I mean doesn't every girl need a big floppy hat?  I actually think I have my eye on a black one at Target.  Here is a roundup of some good options in all different styles and price points if you are currently shopping for a hat too!

Rustic Mexican Breakfast Pizza

Happy Belated Cinco de Mayo!!
We did not go out to celebrate the day as we both worked a bit later, and well by the time we got home, we were ready to eat and get ready for bed.  So in honor of the day, and due to the fact that I need to go to the grocery store in a major way, I created a Rustic Mexican Breakfast Pizza from items we already had on hand.  It actually turned out to be yummy although it may not look the best.

Rustic Mexican Breakfast Pizza
 Pizza Dough (I used a Betty Crocker Pouch that you just add water to)
1 can Black Beans
1 can Rotel
Mozzarella Cheese
4 Eggs
4 pieces of Turkey Bacon, diced (optional)
Salt & Pepper
Garlic Salt
Spread pizza dough in pan.  Mix black beans and rotel in bowl.  Use slotted spoon to spoon bean mixture over dough to not add extra juices. Sprinkle cheese over beans.  Break eggs over cheese layer.  Season to taste.  Bake at 450 degrees for about 15 minutes or until dough browns.
We decided there are plenty of variations that we would try whenever we make this again.  Avocado would have been delicious if we had any!  I would have liked to have this with a small arugula salad to make it a complete meal.  There's always next time!  How did you guys celebrate Cinco de Mayo?
