Our Week in Review

We ate quiche...


BBQ Chicken Quesadillas...

Went on a lovely walk...


Ate chicken salad sandwiches...


Chocolate coconut cookies...


Went on a date to On the Border - and had amazing grilled enchiladas (highly recommend!)...



Ate too many Cadbury eggs. Have you had these? Omgosh, they are addicting and amazing.

Made fresh gazpacho (recipe coming soon)


Bought new lip tint and gloss (I already had the lip butter and loved it!). Target actually carries this line! Other drug stores may too...
Paraben FREE! And very reasonably priced. I had only seen colorless paraben free lip butters so I had to try these. The lip butters are USDA organic. So far so good! The lip tint is just that - a tint rather than a rich lipstick look, and the color I got is a pretty natural looking color, but I like it! May have to try out other colors in the future... A nice minty taste, no harsh chemicals, and the gloss has a pretty shine.  

If you're into product reviews like I am, check out this blog for a review of the lip tint. This woman bought all of them and posted pictures of each color.


Made two batches of these cupcakes for Nick's upcoming birthday...



...And I apparently did something wrong. They were NOT good :( No worries though, another batch is on the way...


We purchased a new outdoor dining set! I love it and LOVED the price!! $69. That is not a typo. Sixty-nine dollars! For the table, two chairs and the seat covers (plus $4 if you give in to the older man excited to sell you the cool coconut candle. What? You would've given in too). Click here to check it out on Home Depot's website, it's a great deal. It says online only, but our local HD had many in stock.

So all in all, our week was good. Apparently we did a lot of eating. At least we went on a walk though, right? It's definitely feeling like summer now, high 70's to 90's most days! I need to enjoy these before we only have the 100's :) Hope your week was great!

I'm totally with you on the Cadbury Mini Eggs... They're WAY TOO GOOD and extremely addicting!
