Another insane week y’all. Sorry for scraping up some photos from my phone but this is all I’ve got…
one. I snapped this picture on our way out the door for church last Sunday. Thomas is wearing 9 month pants because he’s outgrown all of his non-jeans church clothes. I can’t keep up with clothes and shoes for these kiddos. They’ve almost outgrown their entire winter wardrobe but I can’t bring myself to buy more cold weather clothes with spring right around the corner! They are growing like weeds!
two. One of the kiddo’s teachers is going through a difficult time, so in lieu of a card we brought her a jar of Chocolate Hugs and attached a note. With Valentines Day around the corner I wanted to share this idea because it could also serve as a cute but low effort (and inexpensive) teacher v-day gift.
three. Last weekend Matt and I snuck away for our first date night of the year. We decided to try a new place for Restaurant Week and decided to go with Fran’s Filling Station. This was probably the best Restaurant Week experience we’ve ever had — the food was delicious, the service was excellent and it was a great deal too! All 6 courses were amazing but I still can’t stop thinking about the bacon wrapped tater tots.
four. Matt is very opinionated about the candles we burn in the house so I had to share the Endless Weekend 3-wick from B&BW which is his (and my) new favorite. It makes our home smell so fresh and clean despite the piles of dirty clothes, full diaper pails and crackers smushed throughout the house. The soap is pretty darn awesome too.
five. Thank goodness for HelloFresh otherwise we would have lived off of cereal this week. Our favorite meal of the week was the Rapid Beef Stir-Fry (because, um, RAPID!!), but I’m sharing my second favorite because it’s a simple and inexpensive meal you can easily create at home — Sweet Potato & Black Bean Tacos. This is such a delicious twist on taco night! The avocado crema is insanely good and I loved how the sweet potatoes are glazed with honey!!! Make these tacos next week and thank me later!
