Hope you all had a great weekend! We were blessed with absolutely gorgeous weather this weekend and four of my siblings came down to spend a few hours with us on Saturday. Our day was spent playing an assortment of games – basketball, soccer, tag. I have the bruises and sore muscles to prove it! One of the things I have missed the most since moving out of Andrew’s parent’s basement last year is our ability to see family everyday (in Andrew’s case) or to just have the ability to pop over and say hi to mine. The transition to college was so hard to me because I had 6 little brothers and sisters at home and all of a sudden I couldn’t spend nearly as much time with them as I wanted. When I was home, all I wanted was to be around them – my high school friends. who I rarely saw after we graduated would testify to it. Last year we were given the gift of being able to soak up a lot of family time and we haven’t gotten as many opportunities this year. It was so awesome to have them over and just hang out and have a lot of fun together!
Today’s spotlight features this awesome gal’s blog, Skinnytaste. Andrew’s love of pasta and my love of salads make it difficult for us to cook meals we will both enjoy. Fortunately, we meet in the middle at tacos, haha. The discovery of Skinnytaste has been a total game changer for us. These are absolutely delicious recipes and they are super clean. The ability to take a healthy spin on some of Andrew’s favorites makes me a happy wife, mostly because I don’t have to cook twice! We know we won’t be doing independent meals when we have kids so this has been a great source for us!
We have one week of food blog spotlight left! Any suggestions?
Thanks for stopping by!
