Preparing for the Week

The new year (I know, I know, it's not all that "new" any more) kind of snuck up on me with all that was going on with Hubby.  We're still getting settled and back into the swing of things.  With all the new beginnings, I figured it was the perfect time to put a new planning system in place.  It's been working like a charm, too!

I picked up a simple sugar paper planner at Target.  (You're in luck...they're on sale now!!  Find them here.)  It's a slight departure from what I usually choose.  Each month has it's own section with both monthly and weekly sheets.  What drew me to this particular calendar is that the entire week is on one sheet, with a facing sheet for notes.  Until now I was forever scribbling little reminders in the margins, along the side, etc., etc.  No rhyme or reason to anything, whatever popped into my head went wherever there may be space...Enter my new system....

Friday Five [2.26.16]

Happy Friday!!  Let's just get straight to's this week's five:

Hubby and I joined a new gym and are loving it!!  I rounded up some cute gym bag options in this post. I'm really loving this Vera Bradley number.  One will be mine, if I make my goal for the month.  #motivation

What's for Dinner [Chicken Gyros with Tzatziki]

When Hubby and I first started dating he'd frequently request gyros when we'd have dinner together.  Looking back I think he was showing off that he knew that it wasn't pronounced guh-EYE-ros!  Ha!  I've shared my trick for picking it up locally at Kincaids, but last night I decided to make a chicken version, and although he doesn't really like chicken, he loved it!!

Making the Gym Cute

Today's post might seem a bit out of character, but in honor of National Sports and Fitness Day today and in light of the fact that Hubby and I joined a new gym over the weekend, I thought I'd share a few ideas for making the gym a little bit cuter....not that I look cute by any stretch of the face gets red (we're talking red red, as in people ask if I'm ok....), my hair gets frizzy....It's lovely.  But, I digress.

Friday Five [2.19.16]

WOOHOO!!  It's Friday!  This was the fastest, longest week ever.  It's supposed to be 60 degrees today and tomorrow and we're so excited we can hardly stand it.  But for now, here's this week's five:

 After Aqua Boxing (a new obsession!!) with Bestie KP tomorrow morning, I'll be whipping up this yummy Cherry Greek Yogurt Coffee Cake.  So. Good.

Rocksbox Jewelry

I've been coveting the Kendra Scott tassel necklace for a while now, but just never could pull the trigger on purchasing one.  So, when I had the opportunity to try Rocksbox Jewelry Subscription Box for a month, I jumped on it hoping I would receive one of her necklaces in my box.   The premise is's how it works:

Friday Five [2.12.16]

Happy Valentine's Friday!  I love any excuse to wear pink and remind those dear to me that I love them!  Hubby and I will stay in, per usual, and make a special meal.  I'm not sure exactly what yet, but think it will include a mason jar dessert of some kind....any suggestions??  Now, here's this week's five:

This white bean, kale, and sausage soup is and so very easy, too!  We've been eating bowls and bowls of it and honestly, just can't seem to get enough soup....which brings us to.....

What's for Dinner [Lasagna Soup]

We had been so very lucky to have such a mild winter, until lately (not complaining though...we'll take what we can get!!).  This week normal Indiana winter set in, meaning cold and snowy.  So although my cooking hadn't changed to reflect the weather all that much, it certainly did the last couple weeks.  We've been on a soup kick, and this lasagna soup is the perfect, filling comfort food.  Honestly, I think I like it even better than plain 'ole lasagna.

What's for Dinner [White Bean, Kale, and Sausage Stew]

This Cooking Light recipe has been bookmarked for quite a while, as in years, and I'm just kicking myself for not making it sooner.  It. is. delicious.  And truly couldn't be easier to make.  It comes together very quickly and we've been enjoying the leftovers for lunches.

Omelette Muffins

I have a's taken me twice as long to write this post because I've had an ongoing internal debate about just how one correctly spells omelette.  Finally I googled and came up with the cause of my confusion: it can be spelled either way.  The French speaker in me has always spelled it omelette and I'm sticking with it.  All that to say I whipped up some yummy omelette muffins over the weekend.  Hubby is supposed to eat more eggs and this seemed like the perfect way to add them to our menu.

Friday Five [Superbowl Edition]

TGIF!!!  So very happy it's Friday!  I have about 42 different projects about halfway finished, that I'm anxious to tackle and complete, if for nothing else than to just get the house back in order.  I's also part of the reason I've been MIA this week.  More on that later, though.  For now, here's this week's Superbowl five (or in this case, six):

We're Peyton fans in this hive and will be rooting for him on Sunday.  Would absolutely love to see him go out on top.  He has done incredible things for the city of Indianapolis and we will always be grateful.
