Happy Household


We’re very happy in this household. Not just because of The Win, but because Matt got another job offer! Now he just has to decide – which will affect the location: DC, Dallas, or Atlanta??

I’m also pleased, because Kat introduced me to a fabulous recipe that I made tonight and loved! Loaded with flavor and veggies and very satisfying. We haven’t been cooking with much meat lately, so it was nice to get a big hunk of chicken:)


My sweet tooth was still craving a snack after dinner though. I’ve been on a popcorn kick since I finished off a bag of chocolate drizzled popcorn left over from Christmas. I stopped by Trader Joe’s today, and luckily, found a bag of caramel popcorn to satisfy my urge. I was seriously having withdrawal without an after-dinner bowl. I think its the texture that I love so much.

I can’t believe another week as gone by. I like my new schedule because the work weeks are much quicker, but that means time is moving faster, which is a bad thing. I’m really loving it though, and couldn’t be happier with my decision to switch jobs. I can’t believe the difference in my energy levels.

I’ve got a low-key weekend on the agenda that I’m going to kick off with a trip to Target with my Mom.

How will you kick off the weekend?

    Love that you actioned the curry! Absolutely delish.

    And congratulations to Matt – that’s a fantastic position for him (and you!) to be in. Those three locations would be such fun to explore. Hopefully the right place makes itself very obvious!

      It’s just for the summer, so just Matt, but I might decide to tag along if I can swing it!
