Happy Hour!

Happy Hour!

Veronica Mars..the movie! Comes out tomorrow! Yes I realize I’m obsessing over a show that I watched when I was 15 years old. But umm…heres the thing. It may have aired when I was 15, but I definitely didn’t watch it until last Summer. When I plowed through all three seasons in about one week. Yah. So! The movie, can’t wait. I think I’m dying to see it so badly that Im going by myself. Though, my husband is so desperate to go on a date that he offered to go with me!

Which brings me to my little (huge) dilemma. I’ve never left my kids with anyone except my parents. I don’t really trust anyone else. SO going out with my husband, means leaving our kids with someone else. Granted its a friend of my husbands, but it really doesn’t put me at ease very much. He keeps telling me that we’re never going to be living near family again so if I want nights out with him, I better get over my fear and nerves quick, fast, and in a hurry. But they’re MY KIDS!

I posted this picture on Instagram yesterday, because it’s been this gorgeous all week. And it’s supposed to continue. To let my kids just walk out the back door without putting layers of clothes on them..well it’s amazing. And I can’t even begin to tell you how good that Vitamin D feels on my face. Spring is almost here! (One week from today to be exact!)

Want to know how you know you’re officially an adult? ie; old? You get really excited and happy about getting a new washer and dryer! Like, I don’t mind doing laundry now, at all. I’ve been staying so on top of it that this morning I was looking for extra pieces to completely fill the wash. Yah. I also washed all three bathrooms for the first time in ohhhh four years? My husband usually does it because I hate it so much. He really loves me this week though, 😉

We watched Anchorman 2 last night. I thought it was ridiculous. My husband was in stitiches laughing. I spent the entire time organizing my Pinterest boards. I just want to say, they need to create a way to delete more than one pin at once. #timeconsuming

Speaking of Pinterest, did you see that they’re now offering a ‘Shopping Feed’? I feel that could be incredibly dangerous. They’ll show the price and where you can buy it from. As if my online shopping addiction wasn’t already bad enough. It’s just so easy! We’ve been in this house for a month now, and our UPS man already knows me.

I’m going to try to start including in these Happy Hours, meals we’ve been trying (and loving!) lately. I know that when I menu plan, which I do every two weeks, it can be really time consuming. I’m always looking for new ideas for weeknight dinners. I’ve been great since we’ve moved about making dinner every night. We haven’t gone out to eat in three weeks, which is a record for us. So here are some tried and true dinners! A few are from my blog, oldies but goodies, and the rest are from other fabulous blogs!

Poblano, Cilantro, and Lime Roast Chicken
Pineapple Coconut Tacos with Mango Salsa and Toasted Coconut
Spicy Beer Braised Lime Chicken Enchiladas
Butternut Squash Skillet Lasagna
Tuscan Chicken Pasta
Pear, Prosciutto, and Blue Cheese Pizza
Chili Garlic Beef Stir Fry with Coconut Jasmine Rice
Turkey Burger with Caesar Pesto
Coconut Chicken Tacos with Mango Salsa and Avocado Green Sauce (We eliminated the tortilla shells and used lettuce wraps this time!)

Sooooo according to the list above, I stalked How Sweets blog for dinner ideas! I promise to diversify more next time! 😉 Either way, all of the above were winners! A few are repeats, and the others probably will be repeats! What are you trying and loving lately?

Oh! What are your favorite websites for home decor? And I don’t mean million dollar home decor, I mean affordable, but pretty! I have so much more space to decorate now and I could seriously use the help.

Cheers friends! Til’ next time!
