Thursday Thoughts ~ March 19, 2015

It’s a car owner’s worst winter nightmare- snowfall so heavy that you can't dig your vehicle out of it! I'm so glad I don't have to deal with that much snow anymore!

A recent survey shows that only one in five Americans take a midday lunch break from the office. Instead, most people choose to eat at their desks while they work. Does the death of the lunch break make us more productive or undermine our efforts?

I feel very fortunate that I can have lunch while enjoying the views from our apartment balcony. It's a nice way to relax and get refreshed for the rest of the day.

Polish border guards arrested a man after he was caught smuggling his new Russian wife in a suitcase. Say what?!

Kraft Foods is recalling more than 6 million boxes of original flavor Macaroni & Cheese because some boxes might contain small pieces of metal. Just another reason to make Macaroni & Cheese from scratch!

Outfit Of The Day: March 18, 2015

I just love Gwynnie Bee! For a monthly rate, they send me clothes to try, send back or when I fall in love, I purchase for a discount price!

I was able to pair the Eloquii Ruffle Peplum Top and NYDJ Jade Leggings with my Old Navy fitted black blazer, Target tall black boots and Guess handbag for a fun Spring look.

While Sorting Out the Bedroom Closet, I Found...

My wedding veil! It still looks great. Sadly, my wedding dress no longer fit. My chest has out grown the dresS.

Menu Plan Monday ~ March 16, 2015

Hubby and I decided to start our Spring Cleaning last weekend. We organized, sorted and cleaned the utility closet and storage room. We even found some 'lost items'! (that's always a plus)

It also gave us a chance to start planning this year's balcony garden. We're thinking of purchasing flowers and herbs and repotting 'Dave', the African Jasmine plant.

I recently discovered "Heartland" on Netflix and am really enjoying it. The Canadian series is based on a series of books by Lauren Brooke. Heartland follows sisters Amy and Lou Fleming and their grandfather Jack Bartlett through their adventures on a horse ranch. It's a wholesome series, for the whole family!
