Have a fit and stylish week.

May 19, 2019 Comments Off on Have a fit and stylish week.

It’s beginning to look a lot like summer! Well, maybe not everywhere. I saw a friend posting pictures from Aspen, Colorado that looked a lot more like winter. Out my window, the leaves on trees are growing, and the grass is green. I can hear birds chirping by my office window as I write this — a beautiful song on a blustery and rainy day. It’s the type of day made for spending indoors drinking hot coffee, or tea.

Yet, next weekend is Memorial Day weekend. For many, it marks summertime’s start. The outdoor pool and tennis courts at the gym I go to will open. We can all wear white again without wondering whether, or not it’s really okay to. Is that rule passe? What do you think?

Hungry Girl Inspired Cucumber Snack

Sliced cucumbers + Everything Bagel Seasoning is all you need to stave off a snack attack. I found this snack idea on @HungryGirl.

A few helpful and interesting links for your week from around the web:

We were too hungry to stop and take pictures of dinner for Instagram on Saturday night. The Instant Pot Hawaiian Chicken Tacos by Pinch of Yum I made for dinner that night were devoured and much praised. I made them with 1.5 pounds of chicken breast and had to add five minutes to the time they were in the Instant Pot. It’s easy enough to make as a weeknight meal.

I’m looking forward to making Greek Salad Pizza later this week! I’ll let you know how delish, or not we think it is.

May is for moms and exploring the many different routes to Motherhood. In honor of that, here’s an interesting read: How I (Finally) Decided to Freeze My Eggs

Looking for a little Memorial Day outfit inspiration? Here’s a couple of suggestions from Vogue. Or you might give a relaxed look like this a try:
