dinner ideas

I am horrible at coming up with dinner ideas. Seriously bad. I have recipes pinned on pinterest, cook books full of possible meals and an instagram feed full of pictures of other people's dinners and nothing helps. Even with all of this inspiration, I can never decide on what to cook and by the time I get home from work I'm too tired to think and resort to eating cereal (or the really delicious option of eating out). I'm hopeless.

I'm starting to think that I put too much pressure on myself to come up with amazing dinners every night, and as a result I end up panicking and giving up on the whole idea of cooking all together. I like that theory more than the "I'm lazy" one.

I am really going to challenge myself to just suck it up and make dinner more, even if they are boring. If you have any go-to dinner ideas that are relatively healthy please leave them in the comments. I need some quick, easy and healthy dinner ideas so dinner time because less stressful!

on the go

Today is my first day back to work after my week long staycation. It was the laziest of all the possible staycations I could have taken and I adored every second of it. My alarm clock was never set and I learned my body likes a solid 10 hours of sleep every night. I kept my plans minimal but I did get to catch up with an old friend, perform a MOH duty for my sister, and celebrate a few birthdays. I also used the time to ramp up my fitness routine. 

I've been trying to take some outfit photos on the go so I apologize for these poor quality iphone photos. I needed my blog to work a little better for my life and currently the best way for me to capture what I'm wearing is to just get Kevin to take a few pics while we are rushing out of the house.

I hope you all had a great weekend!

The last couple weeks have been busy ones. Birthdays, McHappy Day, Mother's Day, catching up with friends and tying up loose ends at work so I could enjoy my week off. This week is a staycation and I've tried not to make a lot of plans. Normally when I take time off work I try to make plans with all of my friends and get caught up on life in a single week which leaves me exhausted. This week is to relax and that's it. I want to sleep in, go to the gym a bit, do a little cooking and just enjoy very few responsibilities. 

This morning I took my sister for her wedding hair consultation and to look for wedding shoes. Both were successful but after leaving the mall we discovered I had a nail in one of my tires and it was completely flat. Luckily it was a sunny day and it was a quick fix.

I hope you're all doing well! I'll make sure to check in again soon. xo

101 ways to wear a romper



Wearing: Joe Fresh Trench, Club Monaco Romper, Aldo Pumps & Barefoot Contessa Necklace

I'm just kidding, I'm not going to show you 101 ways to wear this romper. I really should though, I wear it all the time.

So what's new with all of you? Our kitchen renovations are done and I looooove how they look. We* updated the cabinets to white, put a white tile back splash and painted the walls a really nice grey/green. It's so bright now! (*I am using the word 'we' very loosely. Kevin did all of the work. I just watched)

We booked our camping site for July. We go to one of those camp sites that is so popular that you have to book the site 3 months in advance by competing with everyone else who wants the site. It's like trying to get concert tickets to a concert with only 30 seats and I am not laid back enough for the stress that comes along with maybe getting the camp site when you want it. Luckily we got the site we wanted on the date we wanted to I am counting down the days until we go.

What's new with all of you?
