Quarantine & Chill

Hello, and happy Monday, friends! I don’t know about you, but for us, the weekend weather was rather rainy and chilly, but of course today it’s sunny and mild. Go figures. 😉 Let’s jump into a little weekend recap, shall we?

Friday

I started the day on a very deeeelicious note. I had the last of my carrot cake baked oatmeal with cream cheese frosting and raisins with fluffy scrambled eggs over greens with avocado. This plate had so much flavor!

I’m slowly bringing my pixie pants back as I change out my clothes for spring/summer.

Matt and I took our engagement photos four years ago from Friday, and it was so fun looking back at some of them!

We basically laugh like crazy in all of our photos. 🙂

I made this and was admittedly really proud of it. We have it displayed in our upstairs hallway. ❤

I so love where we took our photos because it had the perfect vibe. I mean, this purple wall was so fun!

On a whim, we decided to photograph us eating the banana muffins I had made and brought just in case we wanted a snack. So perfect for us as we love to cook together, and he introduced me to my love of cooking!

Alright, so back to Friday. A drug representative catered Olive Garden for us, and it was very tasty! Chicken parmesan, cheesy pasta, spaghetti, salad, and a breadstick.

Plus a mini cheesecake cup.

I finally hung our skeleton, and we made him first demonstrate the importance of protecting ourselves from Covid-19. Our patients are being asked to submit name suggestions.

Matt came home earlier than I expected, and it was such a treat! We relaxed for a bit before I made dinner. I had the last of our Dr. Praeger’s burgers with a thin GF bagel spread with garlic hummus, roasted broccoli, and baby carrots. It hit the spot.

I snacked on a mug of shredded wheat with pb and milk plus an apple and my tea with honey while we watched Ozark season three. It’s getting so twisted and crazy! Anyone else a fan?

Saturday

I made a really enjoyable oatmeal muffin topped with thawed fruit, cottage cheese, pb, and local honey.

I think my favorite thing about this photo is the plunger and toilet bowl brush. 😉 The babies were rather naughty, so I was up earlier than I expected to be. I was rockin’ some stellar bedhead.

Jax is so bad but so damn cute!

Rachel always wants to talk about allthethings at very early hours of the morning. But they’re just so cute and precious.

We miss our baby boy so damn much!! Look at those paws. ❤

A cat cafe that is set to open later this spring/early summer shared this fun cat bingo that I had to play.

And Barre3 shared a word find.

Kaci came over as I was finishing an Unmeasured workout, and then I heated this frozen butternut squash ravioli entree for lunch, and I had it over wilted greens plus an apple for a sweet finish.

I got showered and put my “quarantine look” together. Kase and I watched The Office bloopers and had some really good laughs!

We snuggled with the babies, and then she left to go back home and help Drew with some tasks. I tried my hand at whipped Dolgona coffee. Nailed it! Next time I’ll boil the water on the stove because I think microwaving it may have had an effect. I used my electric frother wand, but it just didn’t want to cooperate. I had it over unsweetened vanilla protein almond-cashew milk, and it still tasted really good!

I went to Aldi and then to Kroger for a few things before getting back home.

I snacked on the last of our fan-say potato chips with carrots and hummus.

For dinner, I made Julie’s Everything Bagel Seared Tuna with sauteed green beans tossed in the dressing from this recipe. We also enjoyed Aldi’s 90-second rice-quinoa blend, and we both loved this meal! I bought the sushi-grade Ahi tuna from Aldi, and it is very high quality. Highly recommend this!

I enjoyed yogurt with some thawed cherries, shredded wheat, and roasted nuts. We watched one episode of Ozark then called it a night.

Sunday

I was on an oatmeal muffin kick, but this time I made it with savory spices, cheddar, greens, and a sunny side up farm fresh egg. If you have not tried an oat muffin or savory oatmeal, this is a must!

Matt and I relaxed while we sipped our coffee, then I got ready for the day. His birthday is this Wednesday, so we went to Cruze Farm for an early birthday treat. I found him GF waffle cones that we brought. He tried their Lemon Custard-Blackberry swirl and loved it! I had my first churn, their Coffee Toffee. We both saved what we didn’t finish, so now we have more to enjoy with those cones.

My handsome husband.

He joined two friends to fish while I hung out with Kase. Since we ate ice cream at lunchtime, I a late snacky-lunch of Red Hot Blues, hummus, carrots, and tomatoes.

img_0661-3

Kase gave me a wannabe topknot, and I’m really excited to get to a point when I can wear one!

img_0662-2

She also used her curling iron to add waves to my locks, and I need to get one and start practicing! I’ve never felt great about curling my own hair, but I’m determined to learn how.

img_0664-1

I loved the volume it added.

For dinner, we each enjoyed a simple salad and the last of our shrimp alfredo. Easy peasy.

img_0678-1

I ate a Kodiak Cake Strawberry Chocolate Chip muffin out of our vanilla yogurt tub with pb and an apple on the side. We’re over halfway through the third season, and I’m anxious to see what happens!

Monday

Kaci kindly let me borrow this top, and I love it! The collar and tie is so fun.

Have a great week!

  1. I think “Quarantine and Chill” could be on a t-shirt!! Speaking of t-shirt.. I love your outfits as usual- turquoise + mustard may be one of my favorite color combos. Ahhh I absolutely adore these engagement pics, they are so sweet and truly could be used in a magazine (or bridal website, what year am I livin’ in, haha). Ohhhh that cheesy pasta kinda looks like five cheese ziti- my favorite from olive garden (besides the breadsticks/salad combo, of course 🙂 ). The skeleton you made is such a simple and effective teaching tool- those tips need to be shared allll around. Oh my gosh, we watch office bloopers from time to time and it always has us in tears- soo funny. All that matters is that the Dalgona coffee tasted good! The first time to try anything is just a mulligan 😉 That oat muffin and egg- yummm. I’ve been craving eggs like crazy this week, it’s been over 3 weeks since I’ve had one and I usually have them at least once or twice a week. I cannot wait to get back and eat allll of ‘em. Eggs breakfast, lunch and dinner, here I come! You hair is so gosh dang cute. I love how full your days are of joy and finding the little-big blessings. Thanks for the incredible post as always- brightened my whole evening ❤

    1. I think it should too!! Thank you so very much. 💛 I love the color combo too. ☺️ Thank you!! We had an absolute blast taking these. I know it was their cheesy pasta, so maybe it was that very dish! It was so good, & yes to salad + breadsticks. Mmm mmm. Thank you! I hope our skeleton is given a good name. 😉 We just watched some bloopers last night! Absolutely, & I may make another Dolgona coffee today! I *love* eggs. It would be so hard to go without! I hope you get to satisfy your craving soon! Thank you so so much! It’s been so fun to have a change. That makes me so happy to know this brought you some joy!! I hope you have a fantastic weekend. ❤️❤️
