Hey guys!  I haven’t written a What’s up in a few weeks!  We’ve been super busy lately!

I am so super in love with our new dog, Gizmo.  I could just snuggle him ALL THE TIME!  I miss him when we’re apart, just like I do my other two boys. 🙂

Aaron and I hosted a chili cookoff this past weekend at our home.  I made two different chili’s and placed the two lowest.  What’s up with that??  My mom took first place with her Hunka Burnin’ Love chili.  LOL!

Sunday was a lazy day with my mom, Josh and my bestie and lil bestie.  We ate and laid around watching tv.  We never get days like this and it was FABULOUS!!!

Lazy Sunday

Today is my brothers birthday.  Last year he turned 40 and had his second knee replacement the day after.  This year he’s having his thyroid removed tomorrow.  Hopefully next year will be surgery free!  Here’s a real throwback picture of us.  A cracked up Polaroid.

This weekend we have the Run for the Stripes to benefit Neuroendocrine Tumors.  We walked it last year too, but this year we have a whole team!  I’m so excited to raise money for a great cause and spend time with family at the zoo.

So, What’s up with you?

Can you believe it’s Monday already!?  The weekend just flies by!  Here’s what we’re eating this week:

M:  Meatless Monday – Falafel and Tzatziki with spring mix salad with tomato and cucumber and a light greek viniagrette.

T:  Taco Tuesday – Lean ground beef taco salads with guacamole

W: Chicken Glop.  It’s a recipe that Aaron loves from childhood.  Chicken breasts baked with cream of mushroom soup, topped with bread crumbs and slices of Mozzarella.  It’s supposed to be swiss, but I do NOT like swiss cheese!

Th: Crockpot Beef Roast with carrots, potato and onion.  We have to run out for my niece’s concert, so we need a quick dinner.  What’s quicker than  dinner that’s been slow cooking in the crockpot all day!?

F:  Leftover or a soup from the soup swap.  We’ll be running to Josh’s concert that night!

S:  Rotisserie chicken and vegetables.

S:  Out for my Mother in Law’s birthday

Hey, hey!  I know, I know, it’s Thursday, but I was too busy to break yesterday.

My little cousin gets married this weekend and I’m so excited!  It’s a barn style wedding with bbq for dinner.  Exactly what I was planning for Aaron and my wedding, but had to forgo when we moved our ceremony up a year.  I’m excited to see everything!  I made all of her signs and her bridesmaids jewelry.  It’s so fun to see everything come to fruition!

I’m getting to spend some time with my mama tonight.  We’re getting pedicures and I’m getting my nails painted.

We had Aaron’s 6 month appointment on Tuesday.  Everything looks great, his scans are clear and we were cleared to get a DOG!!!  We decided that we want a dog who is already house trained, not a puppy, one that we can take for walks at parks, etc.  So I walk in to work yesterday and the girls up front asked how everything went.  I told them he was excellent and that we are now allowed to get a dog.  One of the secretaries was like, TAKE MY DOG!!  Her and her son are just not dog people.  They don’t enjoy taking him for walks, and he’s alone alot.  He’s a pure bred Bichon Frise, so he hypoallergenic and doesnt shed!  He’s house trained and wee wee pad trained since he’s alone all day.  So we are taking him Saturday night after the wedding and seeing how he does overnight in our home and then all day Sunday.  We’ll take him for walks and love on him all day!  Then see where it goes from there.

Ok, back to work.  that’s what’s up with me, What’s up with you?

Happy Monday!  I had a great weekend and am looking forward to a good week!  Started off with a country music workout with intervals and arms.  Last week was rough.  I skipped workouts on Wednesday and Friday, then the weekend.  I was feeling very rundown and my body and brain needed the break.  Work has been brutally busy, so this week I’m using my workouts to beat the brain and body stress.  Here’s what’s on our menu this week:

Monday: Falafel and Tzaziki with side salads.

Tuesday: Turkey Tacos and rice

Wednesday: Salisbury Steaks with Onion Gravy over mashed potatoes.

Thursday: Chicken tenders in the air fryer.

Friday:  Grilled chicken salads, most likely on the go.  I have a show to get ready for on Saturday!

What are you eating this week?

We are back from an amazing weekend away and I have to say, I was not ready to come back to work!  We spent the weekend in Cape May, NJ with family, walking around town and bike riding all over the place.  We ate really yummy food (Lobster TWICE!) and I was lucky to not have gained any weight.  We went on a boat ride and saw dolphins swimming right next to us and got to hang out with some awesome new friends and cute kids.  On the home front, Josh made an acapella group and I am SO EXCITED!!!!!  I love seeing my boy on stage and we will totally get to see him in shows and competitions.  This mama is happy, happy, happy!!!

So here’s what Aaron and I are eating this week.  We meal planned on the ride home yesterday and got our groceries before we even went home.

M: Pierogies and sauteed squash, zucchini and mushrooms for meatless Monday.

T:  Turkey Tacos! I love taco tuesdays.

W: Shepherds Pie.  I haven’t made it in a while and it’s always such a yummy dinner.

T: New York Strip steaks.  We haven’t had steak in a while and my low iron is begging for it!

F: Leftovers.  We’ll have plenty after this week’s cooking.  I’m hoping there will be Shepherds pie left!  I may bring it for lunches though!

S:  Wedding!  My friend is getting married and I’m so excited to celebrate her and her new hubby!

S: Family dinner

Breakfasts are eggs and turkey sausage and lunches are chicken salad sandwiches.  I’m obsessed with the sandwiches lately.  I’ve never been a big bread or sandwich eater.

What’s on your menu?

It’s hump day! I have one day left of crazy work and then a long weekend to recoup. We’ll be in Cape May, NJ Friday through Sunday with Aaron’s family. Tomorrow night my girlfriends and I are getting together to celebrate 3 of our birthdays from August. I’m excited for some girl time. I’ve already planned my meal, since it’s once of my favorite restaurants. Blt salad with filet. Yum! Not much else is going on in Lori Land. Lol! Enjoy your weekend!
