|February 15th, 2013||Friday Favorites|
Well friends, Friday is here again. WOO! Bry and I have some wedding venue tours this weekend and my bridesmaids and I are going to a bridal show. Lots of wedding stuff this weekend.
This week I had a bunch of favorites, actually. Usually by the time Friday rolls around, I have no idea what I’m going to post. This week was different.
Coconut tomato shrimp and rice. For Valentine’s Day, Bry and I made this dish together. It was SO easy and really one used 1 pot (2 pots if you count the rice). I’ll post a full recipe on the blog next week. This is definitely going to be made many more times in the future. It’s not too heavy and actually has pretty healthy ingredients.
My favorite chocolate, Fannie May’s Milk Chocolate Vanilla Buttercreams. I only get these once a year for Valentine’s Day, but that’s what makes them special. They definitely aren’t the healthiest dessert option, but I like keeping them in the refrigerator to grab when I need just a little something sweet. Bryan laughs at me when I eat them, because I nibble off all the chocolate THEN eat the buttercream. Best way to do it.
Valentine’s Day flowers, wine and watching American Idol by the candlelight. Nothing says romance than watching Mariah and Nicki practically rip each others hair out on TV. We enjoyed Valentine’s Day night because we kept it super low-key. You don’t need a lot of money to make a nice dinner together and sit in front of the TV.
Hunter Hayes. He’s an up and coming young country star. I’m by no means a country music guru, but I really enjoy his music. Did you know he co-wrote “Play” by Rascal Flatts at age 16? Kid has got some talent. Specifically, I’m loving his song “Wanted”. You can listen to it here.
No I don’t think that tax time is awesome. HOWEVER, the best feeling in the world is submitting your taxes for the year! I’ve been saying I need to do my taxes for a few weeks now, and this week I finally got them done. Thank you Turbo Tax for making it super easy for the least-financial expert in the world. Now all I have to do is make sure my loan repayment plan has my updated tax information.
