Club Med

  Med diet, that is.  
I had a fun talk with the mom of G's swim friend yesterday and this is what transpired.  
We left with recipes in hand
...or in phone...
and had a great dinner.  

6 whole wheat pita breads 
6 oz tomato pesto 
2 roma tomatoes 
1 bunch spinach, chopped 
4 mushrooms, sliced 
1/2 cup crumbled feta 
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese 
3 tbsp olive oil 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees 

Spread pesto over one side of pita.  
Top with tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, feta cheese, and parmesan. 
Drizzle with Olive oil. 

Bake for 12 minutes.
Quarter and serve.

Oscar Party

Next year I'm totally having my own party for the Academy Awards. least for the Red Carpet portion because does anyone actually care who wins?
Not me!  

I was so jealous when we walked downtown tonight and saw one of our neighbors had their own Red Carpet laid out down their walkway.  
Can you say, "Adorable?" 
We live in such a fun neighborhood!

Party's on for 2014.
It'll be like the slumber party I had for William and Kate's wedding, 
minus the waking at 5am part!

Crock Of Love

It's no secret that most of my weeknight meals involve a crockpot, 
and this is one of our new family favorites.  
I tried this recipe last week and everyone loved it.
...even the finicky one in the guest house.  ;-)

Here's how it looked in the crockpot:

Chicken Lasagna recipe here.

The Devil Wears Prada

Do you remember the line,
"I'm just one stomach flu from my goal weight?"
That has been the story of my life and, once again, I'm fitting into my skinny jeans thanks to a little tummy virus.
I'm feeling much better now and happy that the bug didn't last long.  

On the downside, it's hard to post something when you haven't been doing anything.  
So, here's a cute pic for the day. 
Happy boy!

Thought For A Monday

We had such a nice weekend at home. 
I didn't get as much done as I'd hoped, 
but it was still great to be home for 7 days straight.

Work With What You've Got

...and I've got Camellia's! 
...tons of them!  
 I really hate to break into Spring so early, 
but I hate to see these beauties go to waste.  

I'm crazy excited to be home this weekend.
Lots of projects planned!

Have A Heart

Heart's day is on the way and we're already preparing.  
These are a few things that kicked the inspiration into high gear.  

....ok, so maybe not The Hustle, 
but def SHAG!!

Fun Food

I'm officially sad that there's no more football on Sundays.  
...but that isn't going to get in the way of having fun food on Sundays.  
Here's a look back at two of my faves.

Julie Neill Designs

I've had my eye on these fantastic lights for quite a while. 
Lucky for me, the husband surprised me with two of them for our anniversary.  

My front porch will be so much happier!

The Greatest Show On Earth

In addition to our already-busy weekend, 
we squeezed in a quick trip to the circus.
....and it was fantastic!

The Best!

What could be a better way to celebrate your birthday than with an evening formal?
Ok maybe, a formal followed by a brunch, followed by a shag team performance, followed by a night in a swanky hotel.  
Fun, but busy, weekend ahead!
