Hey friends!!

Happy Friday! and Happy Valentine's Day!!!
I made some "semi-homemade" cinnamon rolls (store bought cinnamon rolls in the can + my homemade cream cheese icing) for my kiddos and hubby this morning and everyone had a fun little treat on their seat at the table. 
What a FUN way to start the day!!

How was your week?
Our's was good! I feel like it went by very quickly. On Monday, I started not feeling super well- but just kind of pushed on. By Wednesday night, I was feeling MAJORLY yuck. Yesterday, I pretty much did as little as possible. I was supposed to run 10 miles today to stay on track with my half marathon training..but yeah. My head is pounding and I can't that's not happening. HA!
I am resting as much as I can so I can get back to feeling better ASAP!

Here's a few FAVORITES from this past week that I thought would be fun to share with ya'll today!

On Monday, after I dropped Marshall off at school, I made a pitstop at Starbucks to organize my life :) I had a busy weekend and didn't get a chance to plan out our menu for the week or update my planner. I took 30 minutes to get things planned out and WOW. That sure felt good! I am definitely capable of flying by the seat of my pants and sometimes that just how it has to be...but I am a MUCH better human being if I have our meals planned out and my planner updated for the week!
On Tuesday, I shared about some of my FAVORITE Trader Joe's items! You can check it out HERE
This shrimp stir fry is a personal favorite! It is super low in WW points and I just love how fresh and yummy it is!!
This riced cauliflower stir fry is also a BIG favorite of mine!
Also super low in WW points and extra yummy if you add some chicken or shrimp to it!!
Since we're talking about yummy food- I wanted to share this recipe for lightened up lettuce wraps with you!! You can find it HERE! It is from the blog, Lite Cravings.
I made this for dinner on Wednesday night and it was a hit with both Aaron and me!!
I will definitely be making this meal again!!
If you haven't already, I'd love for you to go read my blog post about getting comfortable with being uncomfortable. You can read it HERE. I shared my heart about how HARD it can be to get uncomfortable flash: if we never quiet ourselves down enough to let God guide us where we need to push our boundaries...we will never change. And I don't know about you- but I am not willing to spend the short time I have here on this earth doing "just enough." 
Since it's Valentine's Day...I had to give a little LOVE shout out to my best friend.
Most of you know this- but I met Aaron on and after a FAST and amazing 8 months of dating, we got engaged. Ten months later we were married and then one month later found out we were pregnant. To say our relationship has been a whirlwind would be an understatement ;) 
The fact of the matter is- God knew all along this was going to be our story and I am so glad he has been in charge of writing it...because it has been beautiful, hard, messy and SO MUCH FUN. I LOVE being married to Aaron and am so thankful he is my partner in this life!
So...what's on the agenda for this weekend?
Are you celebrating Valentine's Day? Keeping it simple and low key?

We're having our usual pizza picnic tonight....and I picked up a Valentine's cookie cake to make it extra special.
Aaron and I have a date night tomorrow night..not necessarily for Valentine's just happened that our babysitter was available tomorrow for our monthly date night! 

Whatever you are up to this weekend...I hope you feel LOVED!!

I hope you have a FABULOUS Friday and a WONDERFUL week!

  1. The shrimp stir fry looks delicious and something we would all enjoy. I loved hearing about your best friend and the fast track of getting married. When you know, you just know! We had almost the same timeline - met, engaged 9 months later, married 6 months after that, and expecting Grace 3 months later. Have a good weekend, friend.

  2. I have a pot roast going and my middle son made us a cake. I did buy little boxes of chocolates and a book for each of the boys with a handmade card. My husband and I have plans to go out together this weekend for a day of shopping.

  3. Glad to hear you're feeling better! When mom gets sick - that's the worst! I'm the same way with my planner. If I don't get things lined up on Sunday, I'm lost. Love your Valentine plans and hope you have a wonderful weekend with your crew. We're picking up Qdoba take out for dinner and having heart cookies for dessert.

  4. I hope y'all had a great Valentine's Day!

  5. That shrimp stir fry looks delicious! I really wish we had a Trader Joe's around here:( Wonderful love story!


I love hearing from you! Let's keep it nice though...ain't nobody got time for anything else!
