My Favorite Things

A Date to the Vineyards

Wondering where Shane took me on our mystery date yesterday? To the vineyards! Well, a vineyard. One of two near where we live. It’s slim pickin’s here in Central Illinois. (You can read about the last winery we went to – the other of the two here.) Regardless, it was such a nice day and […]

Bring Us Some (white chocolate bread) Pudding

Trivia for Dishes

Yesterday turned out to be a really fun day! After training a client and running a couple errands (Target and Sam’s Club, which were each equally scary on Black Friday even at 11:00 a.m.) I finally got in that workout. I find it really hard to workout once it’s past 10:00, so I had to […]

Bad Influences

For the last five nights, I’ve eaten dinners that have been healthy, veggie-filled, quick, and cheap. Last night I had Monicals: The past five nights I’ve been going it solo while Shane’s been away at a business conference. The first night he’s back and we’re going at cheesy, delicious pizza! I’d probably be 10 pounds […]

And Tonight’s Gonna Be a Good Night
