sunday salad...


Well, not exactly... 

Nick did a ton of yard work yesterday so he was craving some serious pizza instead of just salad, so we rescheduled Sunday Salad for today! But the pizza was soooooooo yummy....

During our walk yesterday, Scarlett wanted to check out the aqueduct. The barbed wire barrier barely held her back! This girl is an explorer, for sure!


This week has been a bit all over the place. Nick took a day off in the middle of the week to celebrate his mom's birthday so we've been off our regular routine for a while. But I'm excited that it's Friday again! Here's what I'm currently up to...


Reading - I've been checking out the sample of the Divergent series and so far I'm really enjoying it. I may just use my birthday gift card to buy it so I can read it all! I saw the movie last weekend for a girl's night out and really enjoyed it... The eye candy in it wasn't terrible at all. ;)

Watching - Nick has gotten me hooked on Sherlock on Netflix. We've been staying up far too late watching it... So good! 

Anticipating - Yard Sale Weekend is nearly upon us! We've been purging and clearing stuff out of our house for a while now and our HUGE yard sale is set for next weekend! Our poor garage is nearly bursting! 

Listening To - Scarlett has been on a ParaNorman kick lately and this is one of her new favorite songs... 

Eating - Nicole made some amazing risotto the other day and it was fantastic! I could probably eat it everyday... 

Working On - Clearing stuff out and thinking about what kind of furniture we'll need for our new place - Shopping for furniture is fun! 

Wishing - As usual, I'm wishing for cooler weather - Spring is springing hard around here and bringing the heat with it! 

What are you up to?

sunday salad


My dad has accused our Sunday Salads of being a bit redundant lately, so I added barbecue sauce to mine to jazz it up a bit. It was super yummy but I think next week we'll have to try something totally different...

Scarlett says that she's wearing an outer space dress and an outer space helmet. All she needs now is a rocket ship!

It's Friday! I'm so looking forward to this weekend - I need some downtime! This week has been looooooong and tough... Here's what I'm up to!

Reading - My niece let me borrow her copy of In a Blink [Never Girls #1] to read and it's pretty cute. It's totally a book for young kids but she thought I would like to read it, too. So sweet!

Watching - I watched the 21 Jump Street movie and I thought it was pretty entertaining. I also watched Easy A and I forgot how much I love that movie! The parents are so awesome! 

Anticipating - Girls night tomorrow evening. I need an evening for myself.  It's been a freaking week... =/

Listening To - Tons of randomness on Spotify. Tons.

Eating - Nicole has been making some super yummy dinners and Nick and I have been lucky enough to get to grub on them! 

Working On - Still clearing out a ton of our stuff. Our house is looking much bigger now! 

Wishing - That potty training was much easier. Scarlett has been such a little monster lately and I'm exhausted. Fingers crossed that next week goes better!

Have an awesome weekend!

I need to just give her her own weekly post, right? She's totally a style/fashion blogger in the making!

sunday salad...


A salad always tastes better when someone else makes it for you, right? Nick chopped up all the veggies and grated the cheese for this all by himself and I got to just sit and relax while I watched. My favorite kind of meal!
