woo hoo – it’s friday!
I had such a great week, I’m kind of sad to see it go. […& kind of not]. october is a jam-packed month for [J] & I ..and this weekend is our last “do what you want” for the month. [next week: iowa vs penn state football game + visit to my hometown. the week after: a wedding in des moines, IA, that [J] is a groomsmen in].
before the recap of my week …I need to warn you – there are mucho food photos. [toooo many, actually]. since monday, [J] & I have been very conscience of our health (especially the food we’re consuming & our workout habits) …I’ll explain why next week. [it’s pretty good]. so since I’ve been focusing on food, I’ve been photographing the food. here we go …
before we kicked off our healthy eating, we had a farewell breakfast sandwich from caribou. [they’re spectacular].
and then we went on our fall bucket list nature walk …with pumpkin spice lattes in hand.
it was chillllly, but the sky was amazingly blue.
the scenery was so gorgeous, we set up the self-timer …
we had one last “poor choice” meal. & beer. whilst belly-up at the bar. [buffalo chicken wrap, extra buffalo. & fries – you were great, butcha gotta go!]
we tossed away all the bad. and went grocery shopping for a whole lot of good.
our first dinner wasn’t the HEALTHIEST option we could’ve gone with, but Iowa Girl Eats had very convincing photos & a healthier version of this classic comfort food. and we needed to ease into this new lifestyle.
meet broccoli-chicken mac & cheese [it’s officially on the “repeat” list].
we also made a Pinch of Yum’s white chicken chili. [what can I say it was cold this week?]. it smelled so good, I sat next to the pot the entire time it cooked.
the finished product.
on top of this healthy eating going grrrreat …my blog was revamped. thanks to my love, [J]. he did it without me even asking. [clearly saw there was room for improvement] ..he surprised me with a new logo and header. but we were on a ROLL, so we upgraded the background [love chevron] & changed the fonts. and I FINALLY got my own domain! goodbye iowameetnyc; I’m 100% little [lessons] in a BIG [city].com.
just in case that wasn’t enough …
he made me blogger business cards.
how do you like the new look?
I CANNOT GET ENOUGH. tears came to my eyes! thank you [J]. you’re amazing!
well we’re off to work on our fall bucket list :)
enjoy the weekend.
