Loving / Eating / Reading / Doing
MARCH 14, 2021
This little lady and I are L O V I N G that Spring is a few days away. I get asked multiple times a day if we can go to the pool and while it’s not quite that warm yet, I know it’s just around the corner, thank goodness!
I am starting something new – Sunday Series – where I share what I’m loving, eating, reading and doing this week. I love to write and share things I’m into and hope you find some enjoyment in reading!
I found a new candle at Target I’m a bit obsessed with – At the Peak by Opalhouse. Itcomes in a couple different jars but I love this simple frosty blue and gold one. The scent is frosted spruce and eucalyptus, and trust me… it’s good. Definitely up there with my other favorites – Driftwood and Sea Salt also by Opal House and my local favorite, Balsam Fir from The Nest.
I mainly cook low carb meals but I’m constantly looking for something new to make since it’s easy to get tired of the same old things week after week. My favorite meal on this week’s menu are sheet pan fajitas, a recipe I got from Nancy Anderson’s 30 Day Slim Down, which I highly recommend!
- Cut chicken (or your favorite protein), bell peppers, onion into strips
- Toss in olive oil and lim juice and season with chili powder, salt, garlic
- Bake at 450F for 20 minutes
- My favorite part! Serve with an avocado crema made by combining avocado, coconut cream, lime juice, salt + pepper (Add cilantro if that’s your thing).
- You can serve over quinoa, rice or in a tortilla, depending on your preference. These uncooked tortillas are my family’s fave – they taste just like what you get at the restaurants.
By reading, I mean listening since I devour most books via audio. In the last year, i’ve really gotten into audio books and podcasts. Currently, I’m listening to The Attractor Factor by Joe Vitale. It’s interesting although I’m still trying to figure out how I actually feel about what he says. I shared more on my favorite books of 2020 here.
Speaking of listening, I have been using these affordable wireless bluetooth headphones that are basically AirPod knock offs and so far I have loved them. 100% worth the $28.99 price tag!
It’s Spring Break so the week ahead involves a little more time with the kids and hopefully finding plenty of chances to be outside. I’m beyond thankful for the slightly warmer temps after a cold and snowy winter (I’m a summer girl through and through!)
On the work front, I’ve been dicing into a dining room refresh and a furnishing project for a beautiful lake house. Can’t wait to share more on both projects soon!
