Friday, Friday

This week FLEW by. Why is that?! 

Of course I didn't take one picture when my family was here. I'm awful! But we had so much fun! 

They got here Wednesday afternoon. My mom and I went grocery shopping for stuff to make fajitas, then came home and she got all of it ready. My dad grilled everything, we sipped sangria and just visited. Then, my Aunt Tina (my mom's sister) and my Uncle Timm and Aunt Katherine and their four kids (my mom's brother and his wife) came over and we all ate. My aunt brought her chocolate cream pie and y' is amazing. It's on my "must bake" list sometime soon. 

Thursday morning, we went to Breadwinner's for brunch {yum!} and everyone was on the road by noon. It was great seeing them, but I miss them so much already. 


This morning, I just took it easy. I gave myself a manicure, pedicure and facial. A little pampering never hurt anyone! :)

I've been working on a project for the past two days that I can't wait to show y'all on Sunday. It required me heading into uncharted territory {aka: Home Depot}, but I brought my trusty sidekick, Starbucks' Passion Tea, along with me and everything was fine. 


This time of the year always has me craving lighter, fresher foods. Honestly, casseroles and any other heavy foods make my stomach turn right now. I'm all about salads, grilled anything and less meat. 

In fact, I was making my grocery list today and noticed that everything on it is lighter...and almost every recipe on it is from my friend Stacy at Live Simply | Live Purely

This is her picture {thanks for letting me borrow, Stacy!} of her Power Salad. The second I saw it, I knew I had to make it. Also on our menu this week? Her Mexican Shrimp Quinoa Bowls. It's a favorite in our house, and so light, fresh, yummy and healthy. 



I'm wrapping up my spring break clean-a-thon now by washing every single linen we have in this house: blankets, sheets, pillow covers...

See y'all Sunday with the big project reveal! Have a great weekend!
