Weekly Round Up

Friday, May 18, 2018

Happy Friday!

How was everyone's week? I had a super productive week at work which was really nice. It's always nice to have a list of things you want to get done, and then see positive results from it. I wasn't too happy with the weather this week though. It's been pouring all week long! I've felt so bad for Diesel because we haven't been able to take him to the park and get all of his energy out. We've had to play his favorite inside game: puppy in the middle. Chandler and I sit on the couch and chair and throw a toy back and forth, making Diesel chase it constantly. It wears him out so well which is great!

I'm hoping the weather is nice on Sunday so that I can do my riding lesson, but we'll see! Sometimes I wish I could control the weather. 😂 Today's weekly round up features a ton of great articles, outfits, recipes, and more that I hope you all love. Start scrolling!



Food:

I've been looking for new recipes to try since I've started my new workout/food program and I tried this recipe from Ahead Of Thyme this morning. Ya'll. It. Was. So. GOOD! I love every ingredient in it and it was a great and easy way to use up some tomatoes in my fridge + it was within my macros! Win/win!

Out of all the carb options in the world, potatoes are at the top of my list next to rice and pasta (I mean duh! 😂). Let's be honest here too, french fries are the best way to cook potatoes. #amiright ?! What I love about this recipe is that it's oil free (hello less fat!), and the seasonings and dipping sides sound amazing!

My favorite fruit has always been strawberries! I once ate so many strawberry popsicles that my face turned red! I laugh about it now, but when it happened I was in middle school and it was of course the worst day of my life. Luckily my dad let me stay home. 😂 As you all know, I'm not really a sweets person, but when I saw these strawberry pie bars from Joy The Baker, my mouth may have watered a little. 😂

One of my favorite lunches to prep for the week are taco bowls. It's so easy to season ground turkey, make rice, and wash lettuce on Sunday before the busy week starts. They're also so good and filling too! This recipe from Skinny Taste incorporates cauliflower rice which I still have yet to try. Check out the recipe below!

Another strawberry recipe that sounded amazing, was this sparkling strawberry sangria from Simply Recipes. It only takes 50 minutes and looks incredible. Chandler loves sangria, so I'm pretty sure I see this drink in our future! 😊

Since summer is just around the corner (or here if you live in Florida haha), it's time to start finding the perfect cool-you-off recipes. Now, we all know that there's nothing better on a warm summer day than some cool, refreshing ice cream or fro-yo. Leite's Culinaria shared this recipe for Mango Frozen Yogurt and it looks divine. I'm definitely going to try this!

I tend to stop making soup recipes once it gets warmer because it's just too hot for that. You know what I'm sayin'?! However, this slow cooker tomato basil tortellini soup from Cooking Classy may have changed my mind. I think it was the tortellini that got me. 😂😉 Get the recipe below!

Entertainment:

Besides my mom, who else is going to be watching the royal wedding tomorrow morning?! She's pretty excited! I know the world is super excited about it, and I know that Meghan will look absolutely stunning on her big day! Also, if you think Prince Harry is incredibly hot like I do, then here's 30 handsome photos of him. Thank you Cosmopolitan!

P.S. My favorites are 4, 6, 17, 19, all of them. 😂

Raise your hand if you're team Yanny? Now for team Laurel? Luckily, there's no right or wrong answer because both words are actually being said, it's just that each person hears something different. To make it amusing, Questlove from The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon decided to make a remix on the show. It's pretty great if you ask me! 😂

Now for the best news EVER! The Backstreet Boys are back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I heard their new song called Don't Go Breaking My Heart this week and I love it. I'm so ready to relive the 90's and go see them when (and yes I said when because I said so lol) they tour again. Click the link below to listen and watch the official music video.

Fashion: 

I love a cute pair of overalls. I actually don't own a pair but have always wanted some. Kelly from Diamonds for Dimes shared the cutest pair on her Insta this week, paired with a really cute eyelet top!

I have found so many different swimsuits in the past two weeks, that my wallet is going to hurt when I finally choose one...or two, or three! Now that I've seen this super cute red suit from Danielle of Shop Dandy, I might as well add this one to my list too!

I love prints. Anything with fruit, plaid, gingham, etc. on it is a fave of mine! Holly Boyd shared this adorable bow back gingham dress on her Insta and it's a steal for only $15!!!

If you're still looking for the perfect maxi dress for spring, then this one from Adelina of The Charming Olive is the one for you! I just love the shade of blue and polka dot pattern!
