Friday favorites: 5/17/13

Oh man I have the best weekend coming up. .. tonight I am having dinner with my sisters at The Melting Pot – gooey cheese and chocolate fondue –>YES! Then, on Saturday hanging out with the family. Luke is at such a fun age to play with, so I really look forward to spending time just hanging out with him. Saturday night, Laura, is going to come down. We are going to grill – Bacon cheeseburgers!! and I am planning some baking too. Winking smile Sunday morning –> BODYPUMP!! And then my parent’s are coming down to hang out and go out to dinner. So, busy weekend coming up and I am super excited!!! And I don’t even care that it is supposed to rain ALL weekend. ..

Here are some of my favorites from the past week. . .

This way of cooking the perfect chicken breast that I learned from Iowa Girl Eats. . .

1. Pound out chicken to uniform thickness between two sheets of plastic wrap
2. Season really well with salt and pepper
3. Cook in a medium-high pan
4. About 4 minutes per side – until browned and cooked through

I love this planner. . .it is just from Target. (Blue Sky).

But I love that it is pink. Has monthly tabs. And extra pages in the back for notes and blog stuff! I have tried to use my phone to keep track of everything, but I just like regular pen and paper –> especially colored pens!! Winking smile

These socks from Feetures!

I wear them all. the. time. I am literally wearing them right now. It is ridiculous! BTW did you enter my giveaway to win a pair of Feetures! socks?

My husband.. .  I really don’t talk about how awesome he is nearly enough. Smile

He is definitely one of my favorites! And especially because he could laugh this morning about the fact that last night I woke him up, to ask him if he was awake, to go take care of the baby. .. which he did! I don’t think I was his favorite person after that last night, but we both laughed about it when this morning I said “BTW, sorry about last night!”

The “My Panera Card” from Panera. . . it gets you free rewards. If you don’t have one, just ask for one the next time you go. This week –> a free caramel skim latte.

  1. I love the Strawberry Poppy Seed salad too! Yum! The Thai Chopped salad is pretty good too, especially if you like a little kick. Love the sweet shout-out to your husband! Have a great weekend!

  2. oh hey. i just realized that the plantar fasciitis heel sleeve (yes they think of everyone thing out there) is made by feetures. it wasn’t cheap. but sooo worth it. it helps a ton when i wear it. if they weren’t 24 bucks i’d buy another so i could wear one all the time.
