    I need to get better at meal planning now that school is back in session. Thanks for putting this together (and for including one of our family favorites).

      It’s a fun book Teri-no need to have young kids to enjoy it! I can just picture you now, dancing around the house, rocking out to Feeling Great With Jasper State :-) Hope you have a wonderful week too!

    Big Tex is such a sweetheart! So many good things in this post that I will just say that it is fab & I’m glad SiSi enjoyed her road trip. Love all the meal suggestions too, especially the delicious-sounding Artichoke squares. Your menus always inspire me. I wish I could be so disciplined!

      Thanks so much Kellie! That note made me smile for sure. And, BTW, I’m not disciplined by nature, but somethings I need just need to plan, otherwise my household would be a complete and udder disaster!

    What fun you’re having! Nothing particular this week…but still extra happy! Every month I buy myself a new book, so the first week of the month has always got me excited to sit back with a cup of tea and my reading’ on. Road trip in sight for November if all goes well…looks like it might be New York, woot!

      I love that you buy yourself a new book at the beginning of each month Vanessa. What a great and comforting ritual! Road trip to NYC sounds like a lot of fun, although it would be a little too long from here :-) Enjoy!

    You hit all of my favorite Vegas spots. The conservatory at Bellagio is one of my favorites! It is so pretty! :)
    I hope you enjoy the Mexican stuffed potatoes! They were delicious! :)

    Mexican potatoes on the menu tonight. I’m sure we will all love them! The Bellagio conservatory is one of my favorite spots too-much calmer and more zen like than the rest of Vegas :-)

    Aww, I love the notes! And you know I always love your Weekly Meal Plans. I love planning our meals – it makes me feel like we’re saving time, money, + energy, + also making better decisions. Can’t wait to hear how those Mexican-stuffed potatoes turned out!

      Thx Amy! You should see my office…love notes taped to the wall everywhere :-) We had the Mexican Stuffed Potatoes 2 nights ago. Very yummy and super easy too! I have loved all of Kristen’s {The Swanky Dietitian} recipes that I have tried!

    just read another blogger (you know Ameena?) going to vegas, lazy river and all. I have one spring break birthday too, my little one hasn’t been jealous of celebrations in belize or toronto but it’s only a matter of time. Your menus always sound good. My mug of coffee in my favorite mug from Task NYC is making me very happy.

      I’ve seen Ameena comment on your blog…so many people in Vegas, it’s crazy! But then, you live in NYC, so it’s like that all the time, right? :-) Coffee in a favorite mug is the best!

    It sounds like a delicious week! I’m a little bit jealous of your road trip–I’ve never been to Vegas. I’m glad you had a good trip!

    My roommate had those Coconut Bliss bars in our freezer last week. I was tempted to snag one, but instead made a mental note to perhaps pick some up of my own one of these days!

    Right now, the love and affection my puppy is showing me is making me happy. He runs around all day with my roommates dog, and then when he is tuckered out he seeks me out to snooze next to me while I work and study. :-)
