We are always looking for a new way to make pizza at home. I have previously posted a few recipes for phyllo dough pizza and grilled pizza. This new pizza is as quick and simple as it gets. Have you ever tried Flatout Flatbread Wraps? Well, the brand now makes thin crust flatbread artisan pizza. And they are delish.
We tried the Spicy Italian version and it def had a kick to it. But we love spicy, so it worked for us.
I would recommend keeping these in the fridge for when you have to make lunch or dinner on the fly. We used the grilling instructions, but if you do not have access to a grill, they can be made in the oven too!
This is how I describe how not tan I am, it is not describing my shorts. I am still trying to buy and wear mostly regular (not maternity) clothes. Minus bottoms, because that would be super uncomfortable. So, I thought I would post a long overdue outfit post.
Lightweight sweater (target), white linen shorts (old navy maternity), sandals (steve madden), necklace (forever21), and clutch (from Groopdealz).
This sweater is from the juniors department, and I love the dramatic high-low hemline. I just purchased a bigger size so it did not become a crop top in the front with my belly.
If you are looking for comfortable maternity shorts, these ones are definite winners.
And who could pass up a sparkly gold clutch? Not me. Groopdealz wins again.
Here is one more photo just to show the hemline of the sweater. I love this outfit, and I was really comfortable. It is a winner!
I saw these wedges the other day and I love them. They are not too expensive either. Just $79.00. Not too bad. These are the Mia Frida.
But wait...it gets better. I found pretty much an exact match to them...
Mossimo Tebbe Tribal Wedge are available at Target for just $34.99. Since they are such a statement shoe it is better to go for inexpensive-this way you have more room in your budget for a few other inexpensive statement shoes! Makes sense.
A little pop of something metallic is one of my favorite trends right now. I saw this belt on one of the blogs I regularly read, Cupcakes and Cashmere, and instantly loved it.
Only problem...it is $120. Soooo I went hunting for an alternative and I lucked out. Big time. Or I guess you guys lucked out, since I do not have a waist right now and a belt is not even an option!
Option #1: The $120 version from Shopbop
Option #2: Drumroll please....the $5.80 version from Forever21
That is all for today, I was just so happy to find this inexpensive alternative I had to share!
With the days flying by and the weather finally getting nice, it is extra important to me to plan out meals to avoid eating at restaurants all the time. I usually plan 2 to 3 meals (because both the hubby and I love leftovers) and we stretch them out over the week. And of course, we try to make time for date night once a week too! Here is what is on the menu this week:
I only chose 2 meals this week because we still have a few leftovers from last week to finish. Hopefully I picked some winners-these are both new to us recipes!
Oh, and I almost forgot. Happy 6 months!
We have a few big projects to finish before our baby arrives this summer. I thought I would give you a sneak peak. Besides starting to turn the "walk-in-closet spare bedroom" into the nursery, here is what else we have coming up:
We live in a beautiful older home (built in 1890). So, instead of putting up the standard metal baby gates at the top and bottom of the stairs, I found this idea on Pinterest and we are going to try and create this look with an old interior wood door that matches the age of our home.
We are giving one of our bathrooms a little facelift and adding a bathtub (we do not have a bathtub anywhere in the house). The bathroom itself is not that big and it is very narrow. This makes storage space a little tricky. I found this idea on Pinterest as well and I think it would be a great way to add space to a small wall we have between the toilet and the shower. We will see if the contractor agrees...
That is all for now (we are doing a complete overhaul of our front and back yards and extending our driveway too, but I do not have any clever ideas for these projects-yet). I will try to pretend to be a good blogger and post before and after pics!
I like the idea of this current trend: printed pajama-style pants. Here is Rosie Huntington-Whitley wearing a designer version that probs costs more then all the clothes in my closet combined.
I think this is a great springtime look. It is comfortable for running errands in but still looks put together.
I found these pants on Forever21. Paired with a white tank or tee and some great neutral colored sandals, these pants could really work. I could definitely see myself trying this trend out if I can find a pair of pants that sit below the baby bump.
Any Bravo fans out there? Sadly, I am def a Bravo addict and Vanderpump Rules was no exception. Even though that show is completely ridiculous. I know it.
Anyways...I really love this necklace that one of the characters on the show wore.
I cannot find an inexpensive version of it anywhere! The cheapest one I found was $150. That is a little too pricey for me. I have found some alternatives with similar shapes for much less money.
These necklaces are from BaubleBar. They have a similar shape and the beautiful colors of the faceted jewels will definitely make a big statement. Bonus: at only $42 a piece they are much more attainable.
I hope everyone had a great weekend and a good Easter if you are in to that sort of thing. We broke out the grill this weekend to make it feel extra Spring-y. This post will be short and sweet. I just want to share with you the easiest fruit dip recipe ever. Pretty much everyone and their mom loves this stuff. Seriously. It is a crowd pleaser.
This was my Easter brunch contribution. Here is the dip recipe:
1-8oz tub cool whip, thawed (you can use light if you want)
1-6 oz container low fat vanilla yogurt (I used Dannon light n fit)
1-4 serving packet fat free vanilla pudding mix
1/2-14oz can of crushed pineapple in juice, drained
Mix all the ingredients together and refrigerate for a few hours. Serve with your favorite fruit and enjoy.
Side note: if you add the whole can of drained pineapple or some sliced strawberries and freeze in individual servings it makes a light ice cream-like treat that is pretty amazing (and low cal).
