Oh hey Friday! I haven’t been this happy to see you since, well, last Friday. We made it through another week and it was fairly uneventful (but don’t tell my husband I said that – with the start of March Madness, this is one of his most favorite times of the year).Here are a few of my favorite things from this week:
My Veggetti Spiralizer
This week I’m all about the zoodles, about the zoodles, about the zoodles, no past. Ok sorry I couldn’t resist. I purchased my Veggetti spiralizer from Target (shocker) last week.
I decided to try out this Pesto Chicken with Zuchinni Noodles recipe I found on Pinterest. I used some of my Arugula Pesto that I already had on hand and roasted the tomatoes while the chicken and zoodles were cooking. It turned out great! Now don’t get me wrong, there was no mistaking these zoodles for real pasta, but as a clean, gluten-free option, they totally worked. To be honest, I didn’t even really taste the zuchinni. I highly recommend giving this recipe a try. Can’t wait to see what other tasty meals I come up with using my spiralizer.
Barre3 at home
I started doing Barre3 after I had my second daughter in order to help get my abs back in shape and tummy into a somewhat flatter state. Because of my schedule and where I live, I’ve never been able to make it to a class so I did a lot of their online videos. I strayed away from Barre3 (mainly because I get bored easily) but have recently been trying to reincorporate some of the workouts back into my schedule. I love this Kitchen Cardio Barre3 video on YouTube. It’s quick (just 10 minutes), requires no equipment and gets your heart rate up a bit, which is always a plus. I do it while making dinner or while the kiddos eat breakfast. It’s also a great way to try Barre3 before committing to their online workout subscription (which is super reasonably priced).
Easter Egg Basket head start
My oldest daughter, Lucy, informed me that we need to plant some flowers to make our house look pretty and start a garden. On a lunch hour trip to Target this week, I found these Frozen kids gardening supplies (sorry for the blurry pic) that I snagged for both girls to put in their garden themed Easter baskets. Getting a head start instead of waiting for the day before. High five for me!
10 thank you’s to my husband
This week I wrote one of my favorite posts about some of the most important thank you’s for my husband. With 2 kids and working full time, it’s easy for me to get wrapped up in life and not show appreciation for my man. While there are about a thousand more thank you’s I probably owe him, this is a good start.
Working on a post for next week about Stitch Fix and whether or not it’s really worth it. I’ve had 6 fixes and think I have lots of good feedback and tips based on my experience. Haven’t heard of Stitch Fix? Basically it’s like Birchbox for clothes. You pay $2o, they send you a box of 5 clothes based on styles and preferences you express in their style survey. Keep what you like, send the rest back in their postage paid envelope. Stay tuned for my full review and tips for getting your best fix. Want to get started right now? Use my referral link and I get a bit of cash to fund my habit.
Looking forward to doing some cleaning over the weekend and having friends over for dinner (and wine) on Saturday.
How was your week?
