St. Patrick's Day Throwback + Weekly Meal Plan

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I'm celebrating at work with un-Irish coffee. I am planning to meet some friends for drinks after I escape the office, though! It's cold, windy, still winter days like today that I really miss those warm pre-spring State Patty's Day all day parties.


I took a much-needed hiatus from almost all things blogging over the past two weeks or so. While I needed time away from my laptop, it really feels nice to be behind the keyboard again. As exciting as it is to start spring cleaning and decorating our home, it's definitely gotten overwhelming! We're planning on hosting a party in our home (our first one!) soon, so that has created a somewhat {self-induced} stressful deadline for things like touching up paint, hanging pictures and spreading grass seed.

In other random updates, I started following the Weight Watchers program again. I've been pretty good with planning meals in the past, but sticking with WW has really inspired me to get a bit more specific with the plans and try some new recipes. With that being said, here's the dinner menu for the week!

Monday: breaded chicken, mashed potatoes and green beans
Tuesday: bacon and onion omlette and fruit
Wednesday: out!
Thursday: salsa chicken tacos {made with lettuce wraps}
Friday: ravioli bake with salad

I also picked up lots of fresh veggies for salads, yogurt for quick breakfasts and some lean meat for lunch. Let me just say that getting older really sucks sometimes, I miss the days of eating bacon cheeseburgers, drinking too much beer and still being able to rock a bikini at the pool! But hey, if chainging my lifestyle now makes me healthier in ten years, I'll stick with it. The bikini this summer is just my current motivation to stick with it! Anyone else following a program? Let me know! The more support I can find, the better!
