Monday Love

Another Monday Love already?!  At least it’s a Monday I don’t have to go to work!

As happy as I am about that, the reason we are able to enjoy a day off from work, hanging out with friends and family, eating BBQ, and shopping great sales is because of those who gave their lives.  A heartfelt thank you to them, and their families, for their ultimate sacrifice.

To thank them for that sacrifice, let’s make sure we’re living our lives to the fullest, okay?

I am definitely making a Summer Bucket List and want to hike all the hikes!

Hopefully these DIY Ice Pops will suddenly appear in my freezer.

I’ll be cooking my way through Jessica’s cookbook when it arrives on my doorstep in 99 days – you know, stuff like this sweet+spicy masterpiece! #drool #drool #drool

I’ll surprise my kimchi loving husband with these burgers sometime soon.

And make him these potatoes which would go perfectly with some grilled steak.

And change up the breakfast routine with this smoothie, and this smoothie, and this no-bake granola bar, and this pie (!!!) bar.

Most importantly, tickets for Feast went on sale!!  You can view the schedule and buy tickets here.

And in Instagram life last week… got a pedicure, Koko has started hanging out in the bathtub, I got some sandals from Target I wasn’t too sure about, and date night at Serratto.





That was my last week, how was yours?  Anything fun planned for this week?


Hi, I'm Sarah, a 30-something wife, doggy-mama, beginner runner (still), wannabe cook, and 9-5 cubicle farm worker, just trying to enjoy life in beautiful Portland, OR!

    I made the bacon pineapple jalapeno burgers that you linked to. OMG they were fantastic! I was worried it was *too* much to put on a burger but the balance of sweet, salty and heat was perfect. So yummy!!!! I’ve been putting the leftover candied jalapenos on everything.
