Hawaiian Chicken Kebabs.

Most people refer to this time of year as summer but I like to think of it more along the lines of Kebab season! Sure, you can make them year round but they just taste better in the summer time!

Last summer I shared my favorite go to recipe for chicken & veggie kebabs marinade which is still one of my top favs! Today though I want to share my newest kebab obsession – Hawaiian chicken kebabs!

These are so simple to make and honestly taste ah-maz-ing!!!!

The power of learning to accept a compliment.

Like most women reading this post, I haven’t always been comfortable at taking a compliment. I don’t know if it’s part of being female, or if it’s a personality thing, but I suck at accepting nice words face-to-face.

Just the other day when leaving an industry event, the sweetest woman came up to me to shed some compliments and was incredibly kind. She mentioned how she loves how easy to work with I am and how I always put my customers first and that it shines through and sets me apart in a predominantly male industry. Which hello, is crazy nice! But like usual, I did something I like to call “dis-compliment” myself. I think I said something along the lines of “OMG no, you’re too nice, I’m not that good and I’m just doing my job!” Which is what I ALWAYS do.

After we ended our chat (which I probably made very awkward) and I was driving home, I entered the cycle that also always occurs after those situations. I beat myself up for not handling it correctly. I thought about what I should have said. I should have just said “thank you” It’s like I turn something that should make my day into something that stresses me out! It’s kinda crazy and totally ridiculous if you think about it and I hope I’m not the only person who does this?
