Going Out

Do you go out a lot during the week?

 Last night, John and I went to watch the BlackHawks game with one of our good friends. We went to a local bar and had a blast, but both of us woke up this morning feeling disheveled! Life was put on hold for a night, and already its just piling up... I was supposed to do the laundry, work out, make dinner etc.,  and John was going to wash the floors, vacuum etc... Easy things to put on hold, but now we just have to find the time to add them in somewhere soon. How do you go out during the week, and still have time to exercise, make dinner, clean, walk the dog, get your hair cut, read - the list goes on!

It is something John and I are both a little troubled in - that is, slowing down and enjoying the moment. Yes, it is nice to have a routine and stick with it, but it is also nice to bump it up a little and go where your path takes you. Balance - I guess that is what this is all about in the end!

Weekend Love

It's Wednesday already and I haven't gotten around to posting about last weekend - sorry! In case you didn't know, I went to Cleveland for a Bachelorette party and Wedding shower for my best friend from high school - It was great to fill up on her wonderful energy, and as an added bonus, I had time to spend with my mother and grandfather as well... Sometimes all you need in life is a healthy dose of love from those that know and accept you - flaws and all.

Asparagus Salad

What will you be having for dinner tonight? This Asparagus Salad would be a grand addition to any meal in my life... It probably would be the same in yours as well!

S'More Time

This weekend, John and I went to his aunts for a family Mothers Day get-together. The food and company was amazing and we made yummy s'more's, which are my absolute favorite treat!

John's little cousins spent most of their time dropping marshmallows on the ground, and repeating the S'more quote from one of my favorite movies Sandlot - here it is if you want to check it out:)

Brown Rice Dressed Up

Yesterday, I made a version of this rice with dinner, and John thought I was a genius... Right then, I (conveniently) forgot to mention that I got the idea for the dish off  Easy Peasy Organic... OPPS! When I made it, I used slivered almonds and dried cranberries - it was so easy to put together, and will be making an appearance on our table regularly - seriously, you should try it!
