Menu Monday

This is a busy and a short week for me so I will not be doing much cooking, but I am going to try and stay as healthy as I can with some quick easy foods.

Monday - I will be cooking chicken sausages with pasta. This is one of my go to recipes, it's quick, easy, and healthy, especially if you add a vegetable. I lo
Ike to cut the chicken sausage into slices and cook it on the stove then toss with whole wheat pasta and quartered artichokes!

Tuesday - I have a late meeting so not going to cook, but I will be doing a quick baked potato in the microwave topped with black beans, shredded cheese (1 oz or less), and salsa.

Wednesday - Bond and I are looking forward to a book signing that evening, so we will be having a veggie pizza.

Thursday - I am leaving for Los Angeles Thursday morning for a bachelorette party so Bond is on his own, but I have stocked up on some staples like yellow rice, black beans, chicken, and salsa for him to easily enjoy.

Friday - more vacation!

Baby Vincent update week 16 & anniversary

It is our 2nd anniversary and time for a baby Vincent update!

This week pizza had been my craving food and I have been eating a lot of bananas as a healthy snack. We are starting to get excited about finding out if Baby V is a boy or girl (First week of May we think).

It is also our anniversary! Second anniversary is cotton or china, we went with cotton. I got Bond this decorative pillow. The quote on it is something we started saying when we were dating, his wedding is engraved with "100 years"

Bond Got me pillow too, but a bit more functional, the Bobby full body pillow. It helps with back, hip, neck pain and more by allowing a better nights sleep. I am loving it. He actually gave it to me last night and I felt great this morning!

I have a late meeting tonight, but Bond and I will pick up some take out to celebrate together at home.

Also, we have a doctor's appointment tomorrow so I will do a mini update sometime!

Menu Monday

I am enjoying planning my meals in advance on Sunday's and really did a good job sticking to it last week so I think I will keep it going and make it a link up!

I am late in getting this up, especially since I have already made dinner today, but here is my menu plan this week...

Monday - Spaghetti with ground turkey, garlic, and red sauce (this is one of my staple recipes, its easy and makes leftovers for lunches)

Tuesday - Take out for our Anniversary.  We are planning on picking up something delicious to enjoy at home together, especially since I have a meeting and won't get him until 7:30 or 8.

Wednesday - OYO (On Your Own) because Bond has a dinner meeting.  I will have a baked potato with black beans, salsa, and a bit of grated cheese.

Thursday - Frozen pizza.  I always keep a couple frozen pizza's by Archer Farms at Target in the house for easy quick and health dinners.  Check them out!

Friday - Eating Out.  Bond and I are attending a fundraiser at a downtown hotel to represent his law firm, and it includes dinner so I am off the hook!

Saturday - Hanging out at the house so probably make your own tacos.

Share your menus for the week!

Fill in the Blank Friday

Yay it's finally Friday! Let's fill in some blanks...

1. Today is a good day because it's Friday!

2. The best thing I did all week was get things in order and do a craft project for the bridal shower I am co-hosting at my house on Saturday.

3. The current weather is cloudy, windy, and warm-ish, and it makes me sleepy.

4. the best thing about spring is all the color!

5. A fashion trend that I am dying to try out for spring is bold color blocked maxi dresses, my problem is they are so long I have to hem them and that seems like way too much work for a casual dress.

6. A person who made me smile this week was my sweet husband, especially when he cooked dinner Wednesday night and ran the dishwasher this morning, how lucky am I!

7. The most delicious thing I ate all week was probably the Mexican food I had for dinner last night, nothing special, just make your own tacos. I am hoping that the cupcakes and cake balls I ordered for the bridal shower are the best things I get to have this weekend!

Have a great Friday!

Baby Vincent Update Week 15

Hello, I am in now in week 15. It will be about a month until we know the baby's sex! We had a wonderful Easter and I are feeling so blessed!

This week I am enjoying Apples! I am also eating a lot of bananas, mandarin oranges, and pineapple. My work clothes are still fitting, with the magic of the belly band, but just barely for most of them, so there is probably a small shopping trip in my future. It will just be for the essentials, some black pants mainly.

Have a great week!

Fill in the Blank Friday

It's finally Friday! This week has been a bit crazy so I am really ready for the weekend. I missed last weeks FIBF so I am catching up...

1. My greatest strength is my ability to organize and then multi-task. I am the queen of "to do" lists and get things done.

2. My greatest weakness is my ability to multi-task and get things done. I tend to get too "to do" list oriented and focused on the destination, and forget to enjoy the journey.

3. People always compliment me on my skin.

4. If you found me procrastinating you'd probably fin me sleeping or watching a movie I have seen a zillion times before.

5. The most cozy place in all the world is where ever my husband is! But in our house it is probably the sofa.

6. Something new I tried recently was a prenatal workout that combines yoga and Pilates principles. It was great and will be interesting to see how it progresses into the third trimester.

7. This weekend I would like to... Get the garage cleaned out and then relax and spend sometime with my wonderful husband who worked way too hard this week!

Happy Friday!
