Today is our Parent Teacher Conference Day. We get an hour for lunch today, so Erica and I are going to try to walk for 30 minutes of it and then eat our normal meal prepped lunch for the other 30 minutes. “Hi, parents – sorry I’m a bit sweaty.” Parents had the option for in-person or virtual, by the way.
Friday after school, Erica, Elizabeth, and I had plans to go to Ulta and Martini’s for their $6 martini special.
You know the cult favorite Essence mascara on Amazon? They have more than just mascara. Some of these little palettes were so cool! I only bought a mascara primer for now.
Then, we walked over to Martini’s. Ulta and Martini’s are both in a little outdoor shopping area called The Paddock. I’m kinda embarrassed. My blog name has both Coffee and Cocktails in it and I had never had an espresso martini!!!! It was sooooo good! It was slightly frosty and I can’t wait to have another one!
We also had some crostini and goat cheese.
We said good-bye and I headed home. I heated up Tom’s lunch pot pie from a restaurant Wednesday and I made myself a Spanish tortilla (omelette) with an aioli dipping sauce.
Then, I made the funfetti dip that Kellyann mentioned in her blog from Living with Landyn. OMG! I used Greek non-fat yogurt and it worked just fine. I had to run to Kroger to get something to dip in it and … J and M surprised us by saying they were coming home around 7:00 so I also had to get some chips and snack foods that I had forgotten to order.
Kroger is an explosion of Easter! If Valentine’s is any indication, start your Easter basket shopping now.
J and M hadn’t had dinner so we had taco leftovers and Kraft mac and cheese leftovers in the fridge for them. Tacos and mac and cheese? Sounds pretty good for a college student. We watched a show – all four of us – that Tom had found and thought they would like called Murderville on Netflix. I went to bed and they headed to the basement to play a game.
Saturday morning was hair day!
I was hungry for lunch when I got home so I made myself (and Mason wanted it, too) a teriyaki chicken bowl. I tried to re-create the one I had at a restaurant recently.
It was really good and I had it again for dinner!
The funfetti dip for dessert:
J and M had to return to campus for play rehearsal. They are both in the same play in March!
I went to Hobby Lobby, Homegoods, and Home Depot on a mission to look for plant stands and plants.
Then, Tom and I walked Ernie and ate dinner.
My new trailing elephant beads plant:
My new bambino ficus:
Sunday morning was meal prep, blog work, taking down Valentine’s decor and adding a few St. Patrick’s Day touches, and then Tom and I went to see Uncharted. I really liked it. I made my own popcorn:
After the movie we went to a Mexican restaurant…
I ordered a really good salad:
And, that was basically my weekend!
What was the highlight of yours?
