Today is a special Friday. I’m blogging from the airport. I’m about to get on a plane to spend the weekend with my BFF!! I’m way too excited! Anyway. In anticipation of the best weekend ever, I wanted to share some of my favorite things from this week!
First and foremost. I just finished Lauren Conrad’s 7 Days to Skinny Jeans Challenge and now have some amazing recipes to add to my arsenal. The quinoa pizza bites were AMAZING. But by far, my favorite (and Tim’s) was the low carb zucchini lasagna. So good!! The flavor was spot on and I didn’t even miss the noodles. The only downside was that it took forevs. I spent the entire evening in the kitchen (and had to make a quick trip to the store, I ran out of cheese!) but it was all worth it because the hubs loved it and nothing brings me more joy and satisfaction than when my husband likes something that I cooked. I had a couple more zucchini left so I whipped up some incredible zucchini bread with a recipe from my absolutely favorite cookbook. This wasn’t on the 7 day challenge, I made it so Tim would have something yummy while I’m away this weekend 🙂 I love being his wife.
Part of the 7 day challenge is to work out everyday. I found an awesome new elliptical workout that was super quick (20 minutes!) and really effective.
I’ve been listening to Kings of Leon all week in preparation for next week’s concert with my sister. Love the new album.
Okay, gotta go! My flight is getting ready to board!
