Happy Sunday friends! I hope you all are enjoying your weekend! Today our big job is to do some planting in the backyard. We got a few vining plants that we want to get into the ground. We’ve had a lot of rain and wind this week and I think they’ll do much better when planted. I’m so happy that many of my little seedlings are taking off too! It’s so encouraging because last year I didn’t have the best luck with gardening.
Here’s a little recap of our week:
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- Broccoli Beef
TUESDAY- Salmon Larb Bowls with Coconut Rice- definitely want to make this again. The coconut rice was especially delicious!
WEDNESDAY- Zuni Roast Chicken Salad – so yummy! Also you could try it from Smitten Kitchen too. There are a lot of copycat versions out there.
THURSDAY- Baby Kale and Goat Cheese Salad with Lentils, Roasted Sweet Potato Salad, and Toasted Walnuts
FRIDAY- Fish Tacos with Pineapple Mango Salsa for Cinco de Mayo
SATURDAY- Not-so-fried Chicken Salad – a repeat that we’re all still obsessed with!
SUNDAY- Grilled Skirt Steak with Basil Vinaigrette
For our special Sunday breakfast, I made these Currant Cottage Cheese Pancakes which are always perfectly fluffy and delicious!
WHAT I WORE
I’ve been loving this nursing-friendly jumpsuit this week. It’s so pretty with the pointelle pattern. You can size down because it does have a little stretch. I love it paired with denim jackets or comfy cardigans.

ON MY MIND
Matthew and I celebrated 12 years married this weekend! Can you believe it?! It seems like just yesterday I was sharing our Wedding Wednesday posts, with all the wedding DIY prep we were doing. We celebrated with a sushi date lunch, a coffee shop outing, and then I made a chocolate cake for dessert. If you need a good go-t0 chocolate cake, I love Ina’s recipe!
If you’re looking for a last-minute Mother’s Day gift, how beautiful are these earrings? They’re so stunning and such a great price too!
I posted a bunch to my Poshmark last week FYI. Lots of nice jewelry too!
This week is super busy with baseball practices and games, ballet class, and recital practice. It was actually challenging to menu plan because a lot of our commitments are in the evenings. I’m going to default to some crock-pot recipes and prep what I can the night before.
I finished reading (and thoroughly enjoyed) Habits of the Household. It gave me so many great ideas of rhythms to include in our family routines. I requested it from the library but it might be one that I purchase because I want Matthew to read it too. It would be a great book to go through as a couple. My current book is The Mission of Motherhood which I’ve heard amazing things about!
Have a great week friends!
