Hey guys, Happy Monday! I hope you had a nice weekend.
So, first things first: I saw Fifty Shades of Grey and promised I’d report back! I actually liked the movie more than the book. But to be fair, I felt the book really lacked in a lot of areas so it wouldn’t have taken much for me to feel this way. I thought Dakota Johnson was really good at playing Anna but, as predicted, Jamie Dornan didn’t make a good Christian Grey in my opinion. It’s definitely a fun movie to go see with a group of girlfriends if you’re into that sort of thing, lol.
Not much to report here from this weekend because I had to work, which I didn’t really mind since I generally am not too crazy about Valentine’s Day. I mostly feel like it’s a commercialized holiday and that we should celebrate love all the time (although I kinda love the candy that’s involved with it!).
Here are a few snapshots from the weekend…
Nothing says love like sweet potato chips.
We had dinner at our favorite restaurant on Saturday. It was a 4-course meal and I decided to go with the wine pairings at each course.
Antipasti = Grilled Asparagus with crab meat and caper aioli.
Primo Piatto = Fettucini Carbonara with duck prosciutto topped with a poached egg
Secondo Piotta = Beef Tenderloin with potatoes, leeks and mushrooms.
I wish I had split each course in half to take home…. I was so full by the beef tenderloin that I got my dessert in a to-go box. Then I ate it for breakfast the next morning, which I considered to be completely acceptable
Today is my day off this week and I’m trying to make the most of it. On the agenda today:
- Clean bathrooms
- Straighten up living room
- Do laundry
- Meal plan
- Blog stuff
Fun stuff, right?
I have slacked on setting a weekly goal for the past few weeks but I have a new goal today! This week, my goal is to try a new recipe.
I get stuck in ruts where I make the same things over and over again, so it’s time to add a new recipe into the mix. I’m going to search online for something this morning… kinda feeling like a soup or stew since it is FREEZING in Charlotte!
Hope ya have a good week <3
Has anyone tried a new recipe that they love recently?
Or do you have a favorite recipe?
Do anything fun for Valentine’s Day??
