Friday, and a reminder!

I have mentioned a few times this year that 2014 is the year that I am trying to embrace healthy, home cooked, hearty meals. At least three times a week (with enough left over to carry the rest of the days) I have managed to make it happen!

I am not really sure why I was so hesitant to try my hand, but think it is mainly that I was scared to screw up which obviously isn't really a reason not to try. I still am not great at meal planning, but with only three meals a week to aim for I really doesn't irritate me too much to make a couple grocery runs (not sure why, but I HATE grocery stores). 

The best thing for us is that we are eating better food, saving money (I didn't anticipate that, BONUS!) and we aren't trying to scrounge up something for lunch or dinner at the last minute the following day. So far 2014 resolution is a success!

And on a totally unrelated note, don't forget that this weekend is the last weekend you can sign up for my Be Crafty workshop at the discounted early bird price!!!


Seats are $70 for the rest of the weekend then go up to $85 next week so don't wait too much longer if you are hoping to attend. I know $70 seems like a bit, but I can promise that Amanda and I have cooked up some really fun crafts and there will be plenty of snacks and refreshments from local vendors and don't forget about the sweet swag bag everyone will be leaving with (which I can't disclose what is inside yet, but I can promise it is good!). You can grab your tickets here if you want to join in the fun!

Now go have a great weekend, you!
