Welcome back, FRIDAY!! I think I can speak for everyone when I say we misssssed you! This week was pretty standard…..appointments + meetings + barn duty + etc…with all that aside, it was an interesting week. I cant help but smile and laugh thinking about the way life has a funny way of working itself out, ya know? I clearly don’t have it all figured out, that’s for fucking sure, but constantly reminding myself to trust the timing of my life and that I’m right where I’m supposed to be. Little deep for a Friday? Yessss…
Enough about that shit! The best part of this weekend? We have almost zero plans. Sleeping in. Coffee in my pj’s. Lot’s of baking for Miss Bailey, I’m sure. Dinner in the backyard. Did you see the weather forecast?!?! Bring on the weekend!!
First I’ve got 5 things on my mind……
ONE – #myoshproject // OSH is hosting another Kids class. Leprechaun Lantern Nightlight making. So cute, right? I showed Bay and she looked at me like, Mom – I’m wayyyy too old for that. But, little does she know, she will be going. Ha. I know she will secretly dig it too!
Saturday, March 11th (manana)
9 am – Noon

TWO – Please tell me you read Chrissy Teigen’s Open Letter that was released Monday morning? As if I needed one more reason to love the perfect bitch! She may be known for her modeling, but she’s also funny AF, a fellow chronic over-sharer, no-filter opinionated, full of hilarious jokes and cooks like a fucking boss. This article is so real and raw, I even teared up a little….read it!!!
Click on the link below for the full article…..
Chrissy Teigen, 31, is many things: a Sports Illustrated cover girl, a New York Times best-selling cookbook author, a host of the Emmy-nominated TV series Lip Sync Battle and the soon-to-be designer of a fashion line with Revolve. But she’s best known for what her husband, John Legend, calls her: “smart mouth.” She opines on everything from politics to stretch marks, 140 characters a time on Twitter. And her commentary is often so “you took the words out of my mouth!” that all you have to do is hit RT and add the word “PREACH.”
What women love about Teigen is that she is, as she admits, “an open book.” She will show off a perfect seared duck breast—and tell you she accidentally sliced off her fingertip on a mandoline. Ask her about the wildest place she’s had sex? She’ll answer. (An airplane.) She approaches any topic with that same raw, real candor.
But there’s one thing she hasn’t shared yet: After giving birth to her daughter, Luna, last April, Teigen developed postpartum depression, a condition affecting one in nine women, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In this exclusive essay forGlamour, she talks about her experience, why she kept it private, and how she’s doing now. And she is as raw and real as ever. Over to you, Chrissy.
THREE – Stir-Fry // I grabbed a Taylor Farms Stir-Fry Kit at the grocery store last week. I was looking at the bagged chopped salads (currently obsessed) and I spotted these kits. Shortcut alert!!! You know, sometimes the idea of trying to be creative with veggies is exhausting? I make the same ol stir-fry with asparagus + chicken. It’s good and all, but its the same thing every time. These are packed with shaved brussels sprouts + kale. I would never use that combo on my own. They each come with a sauce packet too. Just add your protein (like shrimp + chicken + steak) and bam…dinner in 5 minutes. seriously! I served our Teriyaki Stir-Fry with leftover shredded rotisserie chicken over Trader Joes’s brown rice. BOMB! You can find them in the bagged salad section at your grocery store. They are $3 something each!!
Ginger Garlic // Madrain Orange // Sesame Chili // Teriyaki
FOUR – My girl is getting braces! BRACES!!! She’s been so excited. Me, not so much. Do you know what braces cost these days? Dammmmnnnn!! Ha. She stood in front of this gallery wall of kids with killer smiles. Their after pictures. Bay said she cannot wait to have her picture up there in March of 2019. TWO whole years from now! Thank you Dr. Tan’s office for making this girl so comfortable and excited. March 28th is the day.
She added all the NO’s to my grocery list this week…..jerkey + soda + popcorn + Doritos + pretzels + candy. Couple more weeks to indulge before the big day ♥
