This weekend went by way too quickly. Yesterday I had a homeschool retreat with the moms in our co-op and it was such an encouraging day. This time of year can feel slow when it comes to homeschooling so I felt like we all left feeling excited to finish the year strong. Homeschooling is such a blessing and I’m so grateful for the opportunity to teach my kids at home. This book was one that really squashed any doubts I had, and this is another that has been very encouraging. This one too!
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- Kale and Quinoa Winter Salad – this was so yummy and delicious! I can’t wait to make it again. The toasted spices added such a unique element and I love that the leftovers hold for midweek lunches.
TUESDAY- Easy Italian Bean Soup– this soup was so delicious that I wrote it down for my Recipe Box. Highly recommend this soup. It’s simple but the flavor is amazing!
WEDNESDAY- Salmon Fish Taco Bowls– This recipe was so good, like a fish taco but in bowl form. It’s from this cookbook (along with the rest of the recipes for the week. We’ve loved cooking through this cookbook)
THURSDAY- Miso Broiled Halibut- from this cookbook
FRIDAY- Texas Tamale Pie- from this cookbook
SATURDAY- Spaghetti Squash Singapore Noodles- from this cookbook
SUNDAY- dinner with friends- They made the most delicious Korean Bowl with coconut rice and yum yum sauce from Half Baked Harvest Super Simple!
I’ve been loving grapefruit these days! It’s so bright and refreshing and reminds me of breakfasts growing up.
WHAT I WORE
I definitely have warm weather on my mind so I picked up this straw hat from Gigi Pip. I have one of her wool hats and love it, but I’ve had my eye on this Jolie boater hat for awhile.
For a date downtown, I wore my favorite Maylis loafers. So comfortable and they go with everything!
SALES TO NOTE
The Mystery Sale is happening again at LOFT!
There’s also a secret sale happening on Shopbop! Here are some favorites:
ON MY MIND
I got these personalized sunglasses for Corinna from Strand Up, and couldn’t resist a pair for Beatrice too. You can get matching hair clips too. These would be such a sweet addition to an Easter basket!
I’m four months postpartum and the hair shedding has unfortunately started. I’m loading up on my liquid biocell collagen though which has been so helpful in the past.
Matthew and I went on our monthly date on Friday and we checked out a newish coffee shop. It’s hard to find the time to get out just the two of us (and baby) but it’s always so worth it. Baby Beatrice slept the whole time too!
Since I have spring on my mind, I’m going to be putting together a spring style edit! I’ve already found some really cute pieces that I can’t wait to share with you, like these nude flats and this pretty swimsuit.
Wishing you all a wonderful week, with (hopefully) weather that’s starting to warm up a bit!
