Thursday Thoughts

* Some of the dinners I made this week!

Happy Thursday! 

We're almost through another work week! These past few weeks have been a little hectic- after the school vacation, we had a snow day which completely threw me off! Is there anything better than an adult snow day though!? Anyways I'm just starting to get back into my normal 'life' routine which feels really nice. 

Things I did this week //

* Created some new recipes! I've always loved cooking but lately, I'm experimenting with different ingredients a little bit more...and not to toot my own horn but the stuff I've made is delicious! The other night I made this baked haddock and it was soo good! I'm going to make it again next week! I share a lot of the recipes over on my Instagram so be sure to follow me over there. 

* Worked on report cards- If you're a teacher you know how time-consuming the grading period is. I've been trying to do a little each day so I won't get overwhelmed (which my Mom told me I would if I wait until the end of the month...and Mom's are always right)

* Brought a bunch of stuff to Goodwill. If you're in need of some cleaning inspo head over to my decluttering post to read about the 5 items you can get rid of today! The older I get the less junk I want laying around my home. 

Things I'm doing this weekend // 

* Last weekend Kyle & I bought Monopoly and had a great time playing it- I think Kyle loves it because he's a realtor and buying and mortgaging properties is the whole game! Anyways the weather forecast isn't looking great so I'm thinking another game night is in our future. 

* Going somewhere delicious for dinner- Kyle & I go out for dinner one night a week so I put a lot of thought into which restaurant I choose, I'm thinking I either want BBQ or Burgers on Friday! 

* Relaxing by the fire- There's not too much to do when the weather forecast is sleet and snow! Does anyone have any good movie recommendations? 

What are your weekend plans? Let me know!



  1. Sounds like you've got a fun weekend ahead of you! As for movies, I absolutely recommend going to see The Greatest Showman because it is amazing!

  6. Snow days are my favourite days. Unluckily, here we got a lot of snow but no days off and as I am working with schools now I was so looking forward to one :)

    I hope you'll have a great weekend relaxing by the fire!

  7. I love monopoly too! We have some kind of new-age edition where all the properties are modern, like Times Square and LAX, and all of the pieces are pop culture references, like McDonalds fries! If you haven't seen the movie Brooklyn, it's so cute and one of my faves!

  10. That baked haddock looks delicious! I love monopoly but not many people want to play with me; they all say it takes too long!

  11. It sounds like you had a great week! And your meals looks delicious!

  12. I'm trying to be better about cooking this year! I want to get better about cooking from scratch, and having some "go-to" recipes.
