Oh friends, I’m so happy to see you & that it’s Friday!!!! 🙂
Let’s just say that the commute home after this 4 day rain/wind spree was not a pretty one…
That’s why I decided that tonight was gonna have to be a TJ’s kinda night! Partially bc I secretly wanted to go snoop around in there post-work (is it sad that I enjoy that activity wayyyy too much?) and partially bc I really wanted something easy yet deelish for din 🙂
Of course, I never to go TJ’s without pretendin‘ I’m a baller $$ gahhh their stuff just entices me too much & I like to “have it on hand” just in case I need a fun, easy meal!
So check out some of tonight’s fab finds
Ummm can I get a whoop whoop to bleu cheese crumbles w/ cranberries (?!) & apple cranberry chutney?!
These are gonna be incorporated into next week’s menu & I think I know how! 😉
I also picked up a bottle of this guy
A blend of 79% Chardonnay, 11% Chenin Blanc, 5% Muscat & 5% Semillon… love blends!
It’s delicious I must say, I go back & forth with TJ’s wines but this one was a winner!
For dinner I decided on a fun pizza + these fun lil’ apps that I tried there a few weeks back
First I got the apps in the oven so they were ready when my handsome hunk got home late from work… it’s the least I can do, he’s so darn good to me!
These.are.so.good. Holy TJ! 😛
Then just heated up the easy peasy pizza teasies 😉
Of course this girl had to get her veggie on as well 😛
I got the most superfab idea from my homegirl over @CarolineDines to top veggies with none other than pumpkin butter?!??! So I did. And it was genius. Thanks girl, you rock 🙂
Dinner = simple & deelish. No complaints here! 🙂
And now we have some of this to tackle for dessert (feast what what!?)
I thought they stopped making bon bons in the ’90s – but what do I know?
Well friends, we are having a chill night here tonight bc tomorrow is going to be a packed day! Why you ask? Well, The Man proceeded to bribe me with holiday decoration shopping…. ahhh he is good, he knows my weak spots what can I say 😉
The Man: “Hey babe, why don’t we go see that movie 2012 in the afternoon and then go do some holiday decoration shopping for the house?”
Me: “Yes, I would love to go shopping for holiday decorations, I can’t wait!”
My brain: “Hmmm wonder how long this movie is, in fact, what is it even about?”
Upon reading: Movie is 2 hours and 38 minutes longgggggg about the end of the world coming in 2012 supposedly (I better get moving here!)… yes, my bf is science obsessedddddd… and yes, I have little to no attention span for movies that are of normal length unless they (1) are How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days or (2) some other cute lovey chick flick. Should make for an interesting event hahaha.
I also offered to treat him to dinner out as an early birthday present & since I just love to wine and dine my hunk 😉
Needless to say it’s gonna be a fun day! And before all that I gotta get a workout in + grocery shop for the week, whew!
So tomorrow’s gonna be a busy day… However, I think Mr. Sun may make a freaking appearance for the first time since Monday so that would be totally awesome in my book…. hear that weather man?
Have a lovely night friends & see you soon!! 🙂
