Happy Monday. How was everyone's weekend? Friday night Matt took Sterling to the Monster Truck show with a few other dads and Sterling's friends. It went pretty well til Matt said a fire breathing mechanical dragon came out and Sterling freaked out and started crying. Maybe a touch too young for the Monster Truck show this year:)
Meanwhile Frances and I had a nice ladies night in. We watched a Lifetime movie that was actually really good and enjoyed a cheese plate for dinner. Not gonna lie it was nice to have the house to myself!
This weekend I tried out a new healthy breakfast. A quinoa yogurt bowl. Basically all I did was smash some blackberries in regular plain Greek Yogurt. Then I topped it with cooked quinoa, slivered almonds, sunflower seeds, fresh blackberries, mint and a drizzle of honey. It was really filling and delicious.
We made our Braised Beef Tacos (recipe here) for our company Saturday night and they amazing again. I used the leftover beef the next day to make a Braised Beef Quinoa bowl.
My sister gave us the most awesome gift basket from Burts Bees Baby. It came with bibs, onesies, pjs, a blanket, and a hat. I have to say I am obsessed with everything in it. The onesies and pjs are my favorite, they are so soft and I love the pattern. This would make such a great shower gift for someone.
This is Frances in the onesie and the pjs You can order a three pack of the onesies Here. I am definitely ordering more they are my favorite!
I love Monday nights now that the Bachelor has started back up, it is my guilty pleasure. I have to admit I was not thrilled when they picked Juan Pablo as the new bachelor but he grew on me a little last week. But lets be real I watch it more for the crazy ladies than him. I heard this season had the highest rating yet, so I guess Juan has some fans.
I ran out of eyeliner and was at Target the other day and decided to buy a cheap kind just to tide me over til I could buy my more expensive kind. I picked out this Sonia Kashuk twist up eyeliner and actually I really like it. Worth the money for $7. Not sold online so look for it for in your store. Has anyone else every used any Sonia Kashuk beauty products? I am tempted to try her eyeshadows.
This weekend Sterling said to me " I wish God would make Rufus real." I love his sweet soul. Rufus goes everywhere with us and gets an outfit change each morning from Frances's closet. Rufus is one well dressed monster.
Have a great start to your week!
