Last week was divine chaos. I'm working my normal FT work schedule; working on two personal business ventures; taking a social media certification program; and working on an extra project for a work event that's happening in March. It's fun and rewarding and I love every second of it. I just have to jot down times to come up for air.
On Saturday we attended a friend's business anniversary party. His shop celebrated one year and some change in existence and I can't say enough how empowering it is to know people who are actively living out dreams, who are getting up every day to get after it all over again.
Hunter and I took in the beautiful Florida winter weather for brunch outside as well. Below is a Kobe Beef burger with a'egg atop and Bang Bang Shrimp Benedict with asparagus. Glitter and gold and everything I dream of basically.
I saw this meme a few weeks ago and I have not stopped laughing. What can I say, I'm easy to humor.
This past weekend, a few of my very best and I ventured out to properly send off one of us who is to be married later this month.
Insert: My beautiful Lizetty who is gettin' hitched to her Joey oh so soon (really, how DOES time fly so fast?) and I cannot wait for their celebration! It is going to be fabulous!!
We had a wonderful night full of laughing, dancing, and lots of loving on our girl. Magic Mike's cousins were in town so it happened to be the perfect opportunity for me and muh ladies.
Lizetty, you are seriously the kindest, funniest, prettiest little lamb I know. You deserve everything that is good and then 10 million better than that. I'm grateful to stand with you on your day and I seriously cannot CANNOT wait!
Hopped in the kitchen to whip together some spinach and tomato stuffed shells with an Alfredo sauce this weekend. I followed a basic recipe of a ricotta and shredded Italian cheeses mixture for the filling and decided to throw in some toms and spin that needed to be used. If I'm being humble, it came out particularly delicious.
I also rolled some pepperoni and fresh mozzarella croissants for Super Bowl yumness, shown in the pic on the back part of the stove. I brushed the amazing olive oil that I talked about before in a post, along with Parmesan cheese over top, and wa-la! Hunter asked me to marry him all over again with this one.
Sometimes my most favorite place to be is in my kitchen, no real recipe, just going through the fridge and saying, "Yea, let's just try this..."
