So, it’s another chilly/flu season winter day when we won’t leave our house. I’m currently on coffee cup #3. Ryland is on Sesame Street episode #2. Bobby is hanging (because what else does an 11 week old do other than poop or eat?).
I did manage to get outside yesterday, sans children, because my mom babysat. I went to Target and planned to grab a few things, and you know how there’s that running joke about #basic women going into Target and basically losing their ever loving minds?
You can just walk and peruse and wander the aisles.
Which I did, and of course, bought more than I, ahem, planned to buy.
In all fairness, Bobby did really need some new sleepers. He is a chunky monkey and is rapidly growing out of his 0-3month sizes to the point where the zippers may just pop right off any moment. And since I am lazy and only dress him in one piece sleepers, these are pretty essential. And I mean, look how cute! I am obsessed with Target’s new Cloud Island line (it’s very Etsy chic, if that’s a thing?).
Other than blissful Target trips, I also have gotten into meal salads lately (I know, I know, my life is way too exciting, I need to calm it down).
I basically just prepare a few days worth of lettuce all at once with chopped romaine and kale (and yesterday I added in some Trader Joe’s chopped salad mixes that have brussel sprouts and cabbage and other cruciferous veggies). I also prepared a huge batch of this delicious greek yogurt caesar dressing from Gimme Some Oven. I just left out the parmesan (which pains me, because cheese is one of my nearest and dearest), to make it a little healthier and because I think it still tastes really good without it.
And then when I want a salad I just have to assemble. Usually I throw some protein on it, whatever we have leftover or canned salmon or tuna. And then I need a crunchy topper on my salad so I’ll crumble up some pita chips or tortilla chips. Yum.
We got one of the Crane tear drop shaped ones, and Ryland thinks we bought her a personal fog machine to turn her room into a the set of This is Spinal Tap. I can’t say I blame her because it is pretty fun. She figured out how to get the top off in about 5 minutes.
Well friends, that’s our excitement for today. Hope you all are having equally exciting Tuesdays full of Target trips, giant salads, and cool mist humidifiers!
