This weekend was a great weekend! I got to spend the evenings with AJ, got some shopping done and was able to cook 3 separate meals that AJ and I could enjoy together.
AJ somehow managed to be off Friday and work days Saturday and Sunday. This was so awesome to have someone to spend time with at night!
Friday night, we got groceries....yes, this is my excitement starting off the weekend! We grilled pizza's Friday night when we got home. They weren't perfect, but they sure were good! I can't wait to experiment with all kinds of combinations of pizza's this summer on the grill!
Saturday, I was able to take care of some errands and when AJ got home, we went shopping. I have decided, if I have to live in an apartment for one more year, some changes need to happen! We got better lighting for the living room area.....it has made a HUGE difference! We got 3 new lamps and new bulbs, and oh my gosh, I love my living room now! It doesn't feel so dark and gloomy! I made chili-lime rubbed chicken on the grill Saturday and it was so good! It was my first time trying this combination and we both loved it! We enjoyed it with some asparagus and, well, because it's the weekend, a drink.
Sunday, while AJ was at work, I rearranged our spare room by adding the old lamps in and just trying to clean some things out. We don't have a lot of space where we live, so this past year, the spare room closet has become a 'pantry'. We were able to clear this out thanks to some new shelves that we got for the kitchen. I still have a TON of things to go through in this closet, but this sure makes it a bit easier!
I spend the afternoon Sunday making guacamole and pico de gallo for some tasty fajitas that were on the dinner menu that night. I can't believe how much I enjoyed the quiet time to myself Sunday afternoon listening to music and preparing food. It was so nice and relaxing!
Chicken Fajitas were on the menu and they were so good! I was so happy with the turn out on them! I'll try and post the recipes later this week.
I got some good news this weekend, AJ will be working days starting May 10. I'm so excited for this! I miss having him around at night and I need someone around to help me not 'fall' on my habits. Plus, I love the idea of being able to cook more, I've decided that we have to try at least one new recipe a week that we've never done before......I can't wait!
It was a fantastic weekend and I really hope more are to come! Only two more weeks before AJ is working days and we can come back to a little 'normal' in our lives. We are talking of starting a family in the very near future.....I'm super duper excited, but nervous too! I don't know how we'll afford it all, but I know things will work out. (More on this later)
I hope you're having a great week so far, it's almost Wednesday!! Tonight, I'm going to the gym.....are you?
