Lemon Pound Cake

This is the perfect summer time treat! I had the taste for something sweet. I did not want to go to the store and spend a bunch of money on ingredients. I looked up this recipe and realized I had pretty much had everything on hand. The texture was similar to a loaf cake more than a pound cake. However, this recipe was delicious. I love how super easy this recipe was, and I look forward to making it again (maybe even with a different topping.)

Meal Plan Monday #recipe

So last week went really well. I made everything on my list except for two meals. I love how this list keeps me accountable for my meals. The weekend was really busy for us, so I decided to eat leftovers or make something quick. I started working on my meal plan last week for this week’s meal plan. I did not want to feel rushed with selecting what recipes I wanted to try. I will most likely have a salad, pita pizza or something quick for lunch, and I’m thinking about making blue berry muffins for breakfast. 

Monday: Shrimp, tomato and Spinach pasta 

Tuesday: Spaghetti and (vegan) meatballs 

Wednesday: Vegetarian Chimichangas 

Thursday: Veggie Gyro

Friday: Open Sandwich 

Saturday: TBD

Sunday: Baked Cheese Ravioli's

Date Night...At the Rose Garden

Hey everyone one, 
So I'm simply in love with the Rose garden in my state. For some reason I really never get the see the garden in full bloom (which is usually June). This weekend the mister took me on a date to the Rose garden. The pictures below do not give this garden any justice. The screnry is really breath taking if you love flowers. 

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

Thanks Pinterest

So after hearing two people post about pallet projects on Instagram. I decided to do a quick search on Pinterest... I remember seeing some pretty cool pallet projects over the past couple of years, and like the mason jars, I'm super late. I pretty much felt as if I would not find pallets in my area. Until doing a quick google search and found that Craigslist is a great source to search. I'm also going to see if my neighbor would be so kind to give me 9. ( I put the mister on the job to ask him. ) 

I really love the idea of creating deck since my container garden is pretty much taking up all of the space on my deck. I also like the idea of creating some type of seating area. I really just want a pretty oasis. Really girly, but super sexy (insert wink). Since we really on have Until now and august I really need to get a move on it.
