Cowboy Boots & Paleo Coconut Shrimp

So I’m still recovering from the weekend. The Mr. & I went to the Stagecoach Festival in Indio/Coachella Valley over the weekend. For those who don’t know what Stagecoach is, it’s a 3-day country music festival in the dessert. Yes, I’m pretty sure I was one of the 10 Asian girls there, but I love country music. Some of the lineup included Toby Keith, Lady Antebellum, Zac Brown Band, Darius Rucker, Florida Georgia Line, Dierks Bentley, Jana Kramer… just to name a few! Despite the 106 degree temperatures, we had a blast! A few snapshots…

Paleo Coconut Shrimp

…and now on to more delicious things… after a weekend of indulgence (lots of PBR & BBQ) it’s back to being on diet. With only 4 more months until the wedding, it’s fitness & diet bootcamp time! I’m usually not a big fan of shrimp; however, I have a soft spot for coconut shrimp. I even chose it for one of our wedding appetizers!
