Happy Sunday! I hope you all are enjoying your weekend! I got a workout in today before church, and I’m just taking care of a bunch of weekend chores today. For dinner tonight, I’m making this chimichurri sauce which I’m excited about! As we’re inching closer to spring weather, I’m craving fresh and bright flavors.
WHAT WE ATE
my plan is to share the meals I made the previous week, with links if possible, as some inspiration for your own menu planning.
MONDAY: Creamy Mushroom Soup and chopped salad- I made this chopped salad but it was very tangy. I’m not sure I’d make it again, unless I tried this version with honey.
TUESDAY: dinner with friends (they made yummy tri-tip with roasted sweet potatoes and a kale salad with parmesan. so good and definitely some future dinner inspiration.)
WEDNESDAY: Taco Bowls
THURSDAY: Coconut Green Curry Snapper Bowls (from Simply Real Eating)- this is definitely a keeper of a recipe! It was so easy and delicious.
FRIDAY: birthday party dinner
SATURDAY: Roast Chicken with sauteed mushrooms and leftover chopped salad (this was such an easy dinner and it was fun to try a different method of making chicken. Matthew was a big fan of this with mushrooms instead of the lemon)
WHAT I WORE
We’ve had several days of beautiful blue skies which has me reaching for dresses. I have to pair them with cardigans to stay warm but it’s making me look to spring with lots of anticipation!
Don’t forget I have an exclusive promo for Walli Cases. Use code MARA10 for 10% off! Check out other exclusive deals I have for you here.
My favorite pearl earrings from Katie Dean are almost sold out. They would make such a sweet gift too!
If you’re looking for the best eyebrow pencil, I keep going back to this one from Lancome. It’s truly the best and lasts forever!

ON MY MIND
I made a cute heart sourdough loaf for Valentine’s Day! I keep meaning to do an updated sourdough post so I’ll have to add that to my list. I’m happy I’ve been able to keep up with these weekly posts but I’d love to sprinkle some other ones in too.
I bought this cute berry bowl at Target which I didn’t know how much I needed. It’s the perfect size for holding strawberries and washing them easily. I also love that it’s pretty enough to put on the table, where my kids will be ready to devour all the berries!
If you’re looking for a good gift for a girlfriend, I recently gifted this belt bag which my friend has LOVED! There’s something so convenient about having a hands-free bag option.
I forgot how good this concealer is! It literally covers everything!
Valentine’s Day with kids is always so fun! I’m going to give them little Valentine’s telling them some of the many things I love about them. I also love to include as many heart-shaped foods as possible. We’re going to start with heart-shaped waffles for breakfast, heart-shaped pb&js for lunch, and heart-shaped pizza for dinner! I’d love to know if you have any special Valentine’s Day traditions!
Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day week everyone!
