Does anyone have issues with Target? And by issues I mean crazily in love. I have a Target 2.1 miles away from my house which means it’s a quick walk. It’s also a dangerous walk because by the time I get there I have already typed into my phone anything I could possibly remember to buy. Here’s how the situation goes:
*Goes to Target to pick up Prescription*
*Block 2 walked – adds “vitamins” to the list even though you bought vitamins 3 hours prior*
*Block 5 walked – adds nutella to the list*
*Block 7 walked – adds chocolate chips to the list*
*Block 11 walked – adds iron waffle to the list*
Gets to Target. Buys:
Diet Orange SodaStream (x2 because why not!)
4 pairs of underwear
Things I almost bought:
Waffle Iron (cheaper on amazon, I checked)
Vitamins (I talked to myself out of them because I bought vitamins 3 hours prior)
Carrot Cake Luna Bars (they were all out, I crawled through the bottom shelf ripping it apart but there was no left)
Speaking of snacks, does anyone else remember McDonald’s cookies? Back in the day these were my favorite. I randomly thought about them a few days ago and found out that some McDonald’s stills sells them, you just have to ask for them. I haven’t been to a McDonald’s in a very long time, but now this is a good reason to visit.
This week we made Chinese Takeout Chicken and Broccoli. You probably won’t ever order takeout again when you learn how easy (and yummy) it is to make yourself!
I shared one of my favorite lunches, Quinoa Stuffed Peppers! Does lunch get better than this?
Here are some recipes I pinned this week:
Summer Corn Chowder: How fresh for summer does this look?
Grilled Beef Meatball Subs: Meatball subs, always a hit. If Matthew sees this, he’s going to cry from happiness.
Birthday Cake Ice Cream Cups: Birthday cake – nothing else to say!
Nutella Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies: Nutella + Peanut Butter, yes please!
Pull Apart Pizza Bread: I would eat this for lunch if I didn’t have self guilt.
I made a few batches (help me) of homemade peanut butter cups this week inspired by Baking Joy. I will be posting a chocolate and white chocolate version next week! Your life will be changed.
Does anyone else use NatureBox? Basically it’s a subscription service that sends you snacks every single month. You can be surprised or tell them what you want (they have alot to choose from). We’re kinda obsessed with it as they have the best roasted kettle corns and cheddar pub pretzels. It’s a great deal as if you went to a store to buy these kind of products, you know the price. They have a great selection of dried fruits, granola, baked goods.
I’ve been having a pretty hard time eating breakfast the last few days, I’m not sure why. I wake up and I’m just not hungry, but I force myself to eat a oats bars and a banana (and my 2 vitamins). This makes me sad as you know how much I love breakfast.
I revisited spinach cupcakes this week and used up our last spinach leaves of the season. All I have to say is don’t knock these guys until you try them. You will be shocked by how good and sweet these are and will ask yourself “Where is those 5 cups of spinach I put in?”. This is a great recipe to get kids excited about their greens! One of my favorite garden recipe discoveries….
We planted seeds for our fall Broccoli and Cauliflower! Always have to be planning ahead…
I found this picture online a few days ago and swooned at it’s beauty! Don’t get those old tree trunks hauled away, grab a chainsaw and use it as a planter! Now I just need to find a tree on the roof…
I completely agree!
We shot a new project this week, very excited to share.. but it will be a bit of time as post production is super intense. Here I am onset in between shots looking like serious business, in reality I was playing Animal Crossing and trying to sell turnips.
Here’s some of the clothes that were used for the shoot!
2 troublemakers who play innocent. Brother Bear the boy who does nothing wrong is seen here to the left pretending to be a angel but in reality seconds before this picture I saw him put FiFi Bofinkles in a head lock. To the right the woman in charge of us all, queen of the household, 19 year old Essy Francis waiting behind the refrigerator door to give you a yell if you don’t hurry up with her food.
Speaking of Essy, I believe she made this graphic.
I walked by this store and almost went in, but I had self control. The self control will not last.
I am 100% trying to do this with my nails this weekend!
I love everything about this house. I also wish it existed with balloons like this.
I am totally stealing this idea, it’s a great idea to keep track of things you need and medicine schedules. I’m going to do a “home” post soon where I show some things we’ve fixed up over the past months…. you will know I love chalkboard paint!
I hope everyone had a great 4th of July! This picture was taken when the fireworks were on the East River, not the Hudson River like they have been for the past few years. City officials have been trying to talk Macy’s into letting the Fireworks off on the East River every other year so all boroughs (like Brooklyn – look at the view we get of them!) and Eastern Manhattan can actually see something instead of little specks in the sky. Maybe next year.
Have a great weekend friends, I hope you get a little time to relax!
Next week I will have some fun recipes and garden posts! Look forward to talking to you then!
