Hi friends. Shit is just so weird right now. Still going through all the emotions. Stressed. Sad. Pissed off – that I can’t easily get the basics. Not trying to hoard, just need some necessities. Scared of the un-fucking-known. Happy to have more slow time.

Lets all remember to spread kindness. The world needs that shit right now!

Intentions for the Week:

  • Create a new habit – they say it take 2 weeks, and I’ve got that!
  • Stay healthy
  • Find fun ways to move my body without going to the gym
  • Take Charlie for lots of walks
  • Keep a positive mind
  • KonMari my closet
  • Master at-home mani + pedi’s
  • Come up with a tequila + emergen-C cocktail
  • Only purchase what we actually need
  • Work on my skincare

And since I think we all have extra slow time, I rounded up THE best board games. I read the reviews. Did some homework. Gathered a great selection of games all available on Amazon, so you don’t need to leave the house.

{valentine’s day snack board}

In case you haven’t heard – snack boards are all the rage right now. And for good reason! They are so fun for kids and grown ups, VERY easy to throw together and allow you to offer something for everyone to snack on.

I really try to focus on healthy-ish recipes, but the Holiday Whore in me just can’t help it this time of year.

In VERY important news…..

Groundhog Day 2020: Punxsutawney Phil Predicts Early Spring. … The groundhog allegedly did not see his shadow, according to members of his “inner circle,” meaning there will be an early spring. According to legend, if he had seen his shadow it would have signified six more weeks of winter.

Now if that isn’t a highlight to the week, then I don’t know what is! #coldaf #bringonspring

{shrimp + pineapple fried rice}

Hi friends! It’s been a while since I’ve shared a recipe on here. So, I wanted to change that STAT!

This coming Saturday is Chinese New Year. And you know that I’m all about celebrating ALL THE THINGS. Holidays are kinda my thing! We like to go all out. Big or small. Holiday or not. Typically we celebrate with one main thing…….

FOOD!

Bay and I wanted to put a fun + healthy spin on one of your very favorite Chinese dishes. Fried rice. If Bay could eat fried rice every day, she 100% would. Ha! Since it’s the new year and everyone, inducing myself, seem to be on the clean eating train. I am currently on week #2 of the Kaia Fit 30-day Jump-start program. Which is very clean eating.

My wheels started turning and I decided to whip up on of my favorite healthy rice dishes. Shrimp + Pineapple Fried Rice using Hinode Calrose Brown Rice. Grown in U.S.A. Non GMO. Gluten Free. Heart healthy.

You can find a variety of Hinode rice at Walmart + Nugget Market.

Before we get started on the recipe, I wanted to chat a little more about Chinese New Year.
