Weekend Review


Good morning there! I’m currently enjoying the sun and drinking a Diet Coke and I couldn’t be happier about it. Sometimes it’s the simple things in life.

I hope you all had a good weekend. Mine was more or less pretty relaxed. I can’t complain when my biggest decision to be made was what to order at Starbucks. Which I MUST add, that I had my first drink in 12 days!! Yep, totally relapsed but it was totally worth it.

One thing that had me over the moon, was that my best friend and her family are in Paris for the week and she knows me so well that she sent me this picture on Saturday. I mean, Louis Vuitton in Paris? Does it get any more perfect?? #dreams #goals


I also started reading a new Lianne Moriarty book. She is quickly becoming my favorite author. I read What Alice Forgot on our honeymoon and have had The Husband’s Secret on my reading list for quite some time and finally got around to buy it. It’s SO, SO, SOOOOO good so far. Make sure you have enough time to read it all because you won’t be able to put it down.


Ryan and I got a new grill a couple weeks ago and we have been using almost every night. Except I’m getting sick of the same old chicken breasts on it. Any one have any good, summer recipes for the grill? I’d love to try something new!

 Speaking of grilling out, I made the best tasting and easiest pasta salad Saturday. Seriously. 5 ingredients and you’re going to have the best tasting pasta salad for your next party.

Ingredients:

Newmann’s Own Lite Balasamic Salad Dressing

Box of Farfelle noodles

Mini Mozzarella Balls (usually found in the specialty cheese section)

Basil (a fresh basil plant is best!)

Cherry Tomatoes cut in halves

Directions: Cook noodles and drain. Set inside fridge to cool. Cut your cherry tomatoes in half and set aside. Chop up a 1/4 cup of basil leaves and add to your tomatoes. Once your noodles are cool, mix in your tomatoes and basil mixture and your mozzarella cheese balls. Then add your salad dressing to the top. I usually only use half a bottle. Cover your bowl and give it a good shake to mix and coat all your ingredients. Let it cool in the fridge for at least an hour and enjoy (it’s even better if you let it sit overnight)! **You really want to make sure your noodles are cool before you add your mozzarella, you don’t want the cheese to start melting!*

**One more thing before you go, tomorrow I will be hosting a giveaway from Stella & Dot! Come back tomorrow for more details and a chance to win!!**

    The Husband’s Secret is twisted 🙂 We’ll have to chat when you’re done! My suggestion for the grill: throw some pineapple on there! Definitely not a meal, but it’s my favorite!
