Thursday Thoughts

Things I did this week //

* Tried a new recipe! I tested out making cauliflower mashed potatoes and they turned out pretty good! I'll type the recipe up in the next week or so and share it with you! The nice thing about these 'potatoes' is that they absorb any seasoning you put on them and don't at all taste like cauliflower! A great alternative to the carb filled mashed potatoes we all love. 

* Made it 15 days working out! Which I know isn't that long but I'm pretty sure it takes two weeks to make something a habit so I think I've made it through the tough part! 

* Started rewatching The Secret Life Of An American Teenager. I saw it on Netflix and remember how much I loved watching it back in 2008 so I decided to watch it again- 10 years later & it's quite comical to think how invested I was in this show! 

Things I'm doing this weekend // 

* Kyle & I are hopefully going on a fun adventure that was supposed to happen last weekend but we got a winter storm- shocker! The weather here in Vermont has been crazy! I'll share more about this over on my Instagram- it involves a castle! 

* I mentioned before that I started working on report cards little by little, I'm going to wrap all of that up this weekend now that my assessment window is coming to a close (thank goodness!!).

* Saturday Mani! I'm not sure if I've said or not but I always get my Manicures with my Mom & Grandma, it's our little bi-weekly tradition. We love our nail salon & I think they love us because they gave us the cutest little gift bags for Christmas! I enjoy getting to spend this time with them & always look forward to it. I really need to get my nails cut down though- they're way too long! It's hard to type! 

What are your weekend plans? Let me know!
