I heart...

It has been awhile since I shared the things I've been lovin' on lately.  Today it's going to be a mish-mash of random stuff, but I feel like it might be useful for me to categorize these posts at some point.  I feel like that's what a real blogger would do.

Although the caramel macchiato was my first exposure to the land of coffee as dessert, I quickly passed it over for the white chocolate mocha.  Then Starbucks came out with the cinnamon dolce latte, and that was my signature drink for a couple of years.  But they introduced the skinny peppermint mocha a few years ago, and I've been unyielding in my loyalty from the first sip.  Until now.

I'm cheating on you, skinny peppermint mocha.  And I'm not even a tiny bit sorry.

{gold office decor}

I've been really wanting to get my office at work looking spiffier.  It's currently very uninspired and generic-looking, and given that it's the place I spend most of my time, I want it to feel like me.  I've decided to shy away from my typical palette of neutrals/greens/aquas and go for something a little... sassier.  I think I'm aiming for golds and corals (and some black, as I've already got quite a bit of lack in here already).

For starters, I'm definitely ordering this print:

And, in case you want to take a peek, I'm compiling some inspiration on my "workspaces" Pinterest board.

{crockpot cooking}

On busy weeknights, the best thing ever is to be able to come home from work and have dinner already (or at least mostly) done.  What I did this week was throw three frozen chicken breasts in the crockpot on Monday morning, cover with an entire bottle of BBQ sauce, pour a cup of water on top, and let it cook on low the entire day.

Micah shredded the chicken when he got home, and then we sandwiched the chicken between two tortillas with shredded cheddar and pineapple (from a can... we're fancy like that) to make some hawaiian chicken quesadillas.  It wasn't the healthiest thing, but holy cow... they were delicious.  And now we have plenty of leftover chicken to make tacos/nachos or to throw on top of a salad.  Win.

{gracie's thoughts regarding lemons}



I don't blame you, kid.

What are you guys loving this week?

Grace's face is funny eating that lemon! I love to see kids do that! I'm one of those Moms that torment just for pleasure! lol

I need to get back on the crockpot wagon. That sucker just makes life so much easier. I even bought those crock pot liners so life is EXTRA easy haha! I mean, how lazy can I be?

Also--I'm almost ashamed to admit how many times I watched that video of Gracie when you posted it on instagram. It's the cutest freaking thing ever.

I work from home, and still am all about the crock pot! I hope you use the crock pot liners - clean up is AMAZING!
I love babies and lemons! :)
