The Bachelor! We’re doing a Bachelor Bracket at work which is fun, but for most of the season I’ve just been googling who went home and what happened on Tuesday morning and then maybe getting around to watching the episode on my DVR throughout the week with a lot of fast forwarding. Now that we’re nearing the end I’m paying a bit more attention though and actually watching the episodes on Monday nights. Rachel was hands down my favorite but now that we know she doesn’t win, I can’t decide who I’m rooting for! My favorite show right now though is the Gilmore Girls. I’m so late to the game, but I finally started watching it right after Christmas while I was off work for our winter break and I’m hooked. I’m on Season 3 now, so still some work to do!
I commented one day that a co-workers lunch looked good and he shared this recipe for Mississippi chicken. I’ve made it a couple of times and my husband and I have both liked it enough that it’s bound to become a weekend staple because it’s always nice to have an easy meal that just gets thrown in the crockpot. I realized I even made it simpler than what the recipe says – I forgot the butter and couldn’t find the peppers at the grocery store, so it literally was chicken in a crockpot with the au jus gravy mix and the dry ranch packet. Serving it over rice has been our go to option, but it sure does look good as a sandwich too!
Ok! To pretty much every toddler request, especially because the most common ones as of late are “carewie you” (meaning I want you to carry me), “snuggle me” (and then he’ll order us around and tell daddy to snuggle mommy, or mommy to snuggle daddy, or one of us to snuggle his car haha), and “stop it” as told to me the other night when I was doing dishes and he wanted me to stop and come over to play with him.
With waaaay more regularity again and it feels so good. My first blog was only about personal style and after having Jacob I just didn’t have the same level of interest to keep that going regularly. I feel like I’ve hit a sweet spot again and using it as a space to talk about whatever I’m thinking about at the moment rather than just clothes and I’m really enjoying it!
And I’m excited to say that next month I’ll be co-hosting next month’s Currently link up on April, talking about what we’re accomplishing, feeling, needing, practicing, and pinning. If the Currently link up isn’t yet part of your monthly routine, please join in on the fun on April 5th!
