Weekend Wrap Up

Hey everyone. I decided not to go three weeks before my next post :) I promised to show what I did with some of those groceries and I got pictures of three of my meals that I made from my haul last week. Not a huge amount of photos but I'm working on getting back into the habit! I also made huge batches of some of these meals and they lasted most of the week. I actually have some great meals planned for the next few days so I'm going to challenge myself to photograph them all and show them to you. We'll see what happens. Of course I do this challenge after daylight savings so it is pitch black outside when I get home from work and there is zero natural light to photograph dinner. That's pretty much how my life works.

This weekend my mom and I were recruited to watch Delilah and the fur children from Saturday evening through Sunday evening. Stay tuned to the end of this post for a few pictures from that!


I made a big batch of a green tofu scramble with some tofu, spinach and roasted broccoli. It was delicious and lasted for days. Great for a quick savory breakfast!


I saw this recipe for Chickpea and Cabbage Soup on Pinterest and was really excited to make it! I love hearty, chunky soups in the fall and it has been pretty brisk here the past few days so this meal has been perfect. I'm sorry that the picture is horrible but trust me, the soup was delicious :) The only thing I did differently was I left out the oats and it was still great.


Finally, this week was the return of avocado toast! I used the delicious multi-grain bread that I got from Trader Joe's and it was really great. A simple meal that is perfect every time.

And now I know what you all really wanted to see. Or should I say who?


Can you believe how big she has gotten?! She will be 4 this month. I can't believe how quickly the time has gone by. She's such a beautiful kid and has so much personality. 


Here's TJ! He's been feeling a lot better since the last time I babysat for him and he is equally as adorable. I didn't get a picture of Tyler but he was as adorable and snuggly as always. At one point TJ decided to climb up on my back and go to sleep and Tyler snuggled up right next to me. 

So there you have it! With any luck I'll be back over the next few days to show you the yummy meals I've been eating (I know they will be yummy since I actually took the time to plan the next few days of meals)! 

Just out of curiosity would you guys be interested in seeing some of the makeup looks I've been coming up with since the purchase of my new products? I've been having a lot of fun with it but I don't know if it is something you are interested in? I was thinking about making it my Show and Tell Sunday posts and showing you the looks along with the products I used to achieve them. I would also review the products since I've had mixed results with the products I've purchased. Please let me know if it is something you would be interested in seeing in the comments! Keep in mind I'm not great at applying it all but I'm getting better!

Have a great night my friends!

  1. I would love to see your makeup looks (and everything else, too!)!! Learning about products is always helpful!

    Between TJ and Delilah - cuteness overload! She is just so cute! I'll believe you that Tyler is also keeping up his cuteness. ;)

    Mmmm...avocado toast! I 100% agree that hearty, chunky soups are the way to go during these colder months. I'll have to check out that recipe! At first I thought your lead picture was cauliflower and broccoli, but tofu is good, too - ha ha!

    I hope you've had a great weekend, here comes the week!

      I know!! So much cuteness, I love it! Tyler is definitely holding is own in the cute department :)

      The toast was so good and definitely check out the soup. I think you'd like it!

      Thanks! You too!

  2. Very green tofu scramble. Love roasted broccoli in pretty much anything. Green peppers would also probably be nice, but I know you don't like them. I need to eat more greens; I feel like I haven't bought spinach in forever.
    The soup sounds awesome! It looks very pretty too. But I totally hear you on the frustration of lack of natural light.
    And yes to avo toast. It's been forever since I've made that too.

    1. Roasted broccoli and cauliflower are the best. Haha yeah I'll always pass on the green peppers but I know they would be a great addition for those that like them! Avo toast is a must and so is natural light... which makes winter time sad time.
