Weekend Recap

Hellllo there! You know what made waking up today bearable - knowing that THIS weekend is a magical 3 day weekend.

This weekend was a depressing one, mostly because we finally got around to taking down Christmas AND we ripped up all our carpets. We're getting beautiful laminate floors next week and decided to start getting the carpet up this weekend, somehow we lucked out and had a friend come over. It only took us 3 hours to get both rooms ready for floors. Had we known it would go so fast, we would have waited till this weekend. For the mean time, we're living on Concrete. Oh JOY!

On Sunday, I joined a few friends at the Bridal crawl downtown, which is my absolute favorite event! Every downtown venue is set up for a wedding and you get free champagne, food and sweets at each place. 
Plus you get to try out some awesome photo booths!

Recent Recipe faves

A few weeks ago my mom was coming into town to stay with me for the night. On her way in, she sent me the hands-down best text ever...and it goes a little something like this:

"Going to Costco...Would you like anything?"

Once I stopped jumping for joy, I put in an order for any meat that we can freeze.  We've been home-cooking it up, so I'm figured I'd share some Pinterest recipes that are now personal residents in our house!

Stuffed Peppers:
We had this last night and holy amazzzzing! It's so easy, delicious and most importantly fills up Jason.

Garlic Lime Marinated Pork Chops:
Another easy meal, It's done in about 30 minutes and it's so flavorful. I'm mildly obsessed with Skinnytaste

Chicken with Lemon, Green Beans (and Potatoes):
Honestly, we usually do this dish sans potatoes - weird, right? We made this a few months back and it's a steady favorite of ours!

Do you have any go-to recipes in your house?

Pesky Resolutions

I'm never ever good at keeping these. In fact, my resolutions for several years would be to not make that I didn't feel bad for breaking it.  However, Jason drilled it in my head that it was a cop-out, so instead I've been trying to make small resolutions. 

Side note: Last year, my resolution lasted 3 months

In all seriousness, my resolution is pretty much an on going thing that I've been trying to work on for months now, In looking back through my blog it's actually been a year since I wrote about it. Yup, I'm still on my life plan to find balance

This quote sums up my main resolution this year:

On top of that, I have small resolutions like:
Budgeting....aka the bane of my existence
Making the bed every morning
Update two big items on my Home list. So far we're thinking Laminate floors and perhaps our closet doors. It's sad how excited I am for those! 

What are your resolutions this year?
