Miscellany Monday

Whew...what a weekend! It definitely flew by and this morning is flying by as well. I'm not going to lie, I'm a bit all over the place today. I have lots of updates and little time, so today I'm linking up with Carissa at lowercase letters for Miscellany Monday!

One of my best friends since I was 9 years old, Kristin, came to visit me this weekend! It was an absolutely fun filled girls weekend while the hubs was in Galveston having his winter Fantasy Football guys weekend :) {He's really cool by the way ;)} Read more about Kristin here and here!

While the hubs was gone, Kristin and I ate good food {Chuy's - Mexican; Pronto - Italian; Crave - Sushi; Daddy Timmer's house - BBQ), took Miss Maggie on several walks, spent time out in the sunshine, enjoyed a few adult beverages and went out to celebrate Luke's birthday, and spent time with my parents on Sunday. All in all we had a great time and I can't wait for her to come back to see Luke Bryan at the rodeo on March 3rd!!! I'll post more pictures from Luke's birthday celebration once I get all of them. I was bad and barely brought my camera out this weekend!

Kristin H. - me - Kathy - Kristin C. out celebrating Luke's birthday!
The house is starting to come along nicely! Our living room is painted and the guest bedroom is completely decorated! The guest bedroom is our next painting project. We'll probably try to get started on it this weekend...I haven't told the hubs this yet, but he'll find out when he's bored at work and reading my blog this afternoon :)

After thoroughly enjoying buddy week at Camp Gladiator last week, I signed up for the next session! This means I get to finish out this session (this week) and then I have 4 weeks of camp from February 13th - March 10th! This morning's work out was killer on the arms and was a great start to a fresh, new week! I'm aiming to share an awesome arm workout with you this week. Get excited.

I love Monday's after work because I get to spend them with my momma. Last Monday, we went to Garden Ridge and found some decor for my guest bedroom and then hung out and watched The Bachelor. Tonight we're going to attempt to make my tutu for the Disney Princess half marathon that is in 4 short weeks! Once we've determined that my tutu is a success, we'll get to work on Julie and Andrea's! Oh and you know that we'll be watching The Bachelor, gossiping and eating the yummy lasagna that my momma is making me for dinner!
Mine and my momma's fave this season!
I'm looking forward to seeing my wonderful in-laws next weekend and showing them our new home for the first time! Hopefully we can get a few more things on the walls before they come!

I promised a recipe for my yummy Balsamic Portabello Mushroom Caps, so here you go!
Balsamic Portabello Mushroom Caps
  • 2 large portabello mushroom caps
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp garlic
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  1. Mix together above ingredients in a small bowl {excluding mushroom caps}
  2. Place mushroom caps in a shallow dish and pour mixture from step 1 over top
  3. Place shallow dish in the fridge and allow mushrooms to soak up the mixture for about 30 minutes. {You may want to flip the mushrooms about halfway through to ensure mushroom is fully coated}
  4. After 30 minutes, remove from fridge and place on the grill. You can used a regular grill, but even a George Foreman works great!
  5. Cook for 10 minutes or until tender.
  6. Remove and enjoy!

You can eat these as is or enjoy it as a burger {I would add some guacamole to it!}

I hope everyone has a wonderful {and quick} Monday!

Until next time...
With love and God bless,
