Spring has arrived here in Alabama! It was 79 degrees and sunny when Laura and I walked to lunch yesterday. Absolutely gorgeous outside!! This is the weather I enjoy, before it gets too hot and humid and I start dreaming of winter again. You know, in May.
Favorite Moments: I had lunch with Laura twice this week! On Tuesday we went to Saigon in Avondale. We both had our minds on bahn mi, and it was delicious as usual! We can’t go there without ordering the spring rolls of course!!! And then, we ordered Thai boba tea to go. Man, that was the best ever! I cant quit thinking about it.
Laura texted me an Instagram picture of sake cocktails in a can Wednesday night and was all…..eat at iCantina for lunch tomorrow, then walk over to Hop City and pick these up? Twist my arm. twist. my. arm. We shared chips and salsa, ordered delicious tacos and enjoyed another beautiful day in Birmingham…and then picked up one of each flavor they had of this gluten free 88 calorie goodness in a can afterwards.
Zoe brings joy to my life every single day. Right now she is in a phase where she likes to say hi to people as they enter a room. I will leave the living room and then walk back into the room and she will say “hi” like she is greeting me for the first time. Her afternoon teachers say that she greets them every afternoon when they come in without fail. They hear it over all the other kids the moment she notices they walked in. So sweet!
When I dropped her off at daycare on Wednesday, she walked up to each of the three kids in her class individually to say hi to them before sitting down at her own desk. It was just the cutest thing ever. My little social butterfly.
Right now she likes to go behind the kitchen table and “hide” and then she starts laughing manically when I come “find” her.
Favorite Recipe: We keep this korean beef recipe in rotation pretty regularly at our house. This was from Monday night. It is so easy to swap things out to make it healthier or less carbs or whatever. Most times I serve it with stir fry veggies instead of rice. During whole 30 I subbed coconut aminos and dropped the brown sugar and added a few more spices.
Favorite Lust: With the warm weather comes the need to update my spring wardrobe. Last year I was still going through PP issues and didn’t have a lot to work with. I wore the crap out of the same 5-6 dresses for most of the spring/summer. Loft is one of my favorite go-tos for dresses. And sometimes Old Navy, though their quality can leave a bit to be desired. I have my eye on this short sleeve swing dress right now. Come on sale! Swing and shift dresses are my jam.
Linking up with Amanda, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
