An Impromptu Weekly Roundup | Welcome Home, Hauli-beau-days, & More

I just did my morning fasted cardio and I’m feeling good, so let’s go. Here’s an impromptu weekly roundup! Because I have lots of things I want to ramble on about right now.

Maybe I took too much pre-workout…

So, first, I realized that I totally forgot to show you all David’s “Welcome Home” dinner that I cooked on Sunday! I am not afraid to brag (because it’s totally true, he tells me all the time) that my husband loves my cooking. I think it’s equal parts him actually enjoying the way it tastes and the fact that he just really appreciates staying in for a home cooked meal made by me.

Anyways, I knew he’d want me to make him something nice for his return home after a month so I asked what he wanted. His only request: broccoli casserole. I took it from there.

Leftovers for days…

I’m still really excited about the blog posts I shared with you this week! I shared my Grandma’s Banana Bread recipe– made healthier with flax seed meal- and a few meal ideas that work great when cooking for two!


I also finally got swatches up of the Mac Nordstrom Naturals eyeshadow palette. Gorg! And speaking of makeup, if you enjoy beauty posts then next week is for you (if you don’t, stand by- holiday fitness posts are coming too!). I just received a wonderful package and next week I am reviewing & swatching one Holiday palette/gift set every day for what I am calling, “Hauli-beau-days”… unless you can think of something more clever?? 🙂 12118992_840260766089348_1350129886339457360_nOh and, did you guys see this from LEAF?

I like 🙂

Before I go, a story. Daddy got LD a new Avengers shirt that he chose to wear today. He got so excited he then picked out Spiderman underwear, a Spiderman hat, and ran to get his Avengers shoes he “needed” to wear. He then asked me “can you please take a picture of me, mommy” in the sweetest voice ever. Of course, I obliged and he continued to act out each and every Avenger.


If you can guess each superhero he is acting out, you win.

Happy Friday, guys! We’re having a relaxing, easy weekend. What are you doing this weekend? And share your favorite blog posts of the week with me too so I can check them out!
