Recipe of the Week!

My apologies for being gone for so long! We had an awesome trip to Yosemite! I'll post some pictures for tomorrow's post.

Last week I gained .2 lbs, but this week, I am down another 2.4 lbs! Currently I am at 256.2.

Hard work, but giving up sweets and alcohol has definitely helped!

Now for the recipe of the week (I know everyone is dying to read this every week...)

Have you found yet? It is, quite possibly, my favorite website (yes, even better than Pinterest). Check it out!

We enjoyed this recipe. The homemade pesto is oh so yummy! I used fresh shredded parmesan, instead of the powder stuff. This is also my first time making brussel sprouts. They were yummy, too!

Catch y'all tomorrow!

The last 2 weeks have been SO busy, I can't even find time to sad! So, I'm going to do my 3 normal posts, all in one. We'll call it weighinrecipeoftheweekinstafriday!

Week 3:
Week 3 of the weigh in comes in at 258.4. That makes me down another 1.2 pounds and 11.2 total! (Although after this weekend of Buffalo Wild Wings and yummy Mexican food, who knows what this week holds! :) During the week, dieting is easy for me. The weekends (especially when we are out of town) not so easy! Still getting the hang of it, but it will come eventually!

Recipe of the week: Biggest Loser BBQ Bacon Meatloaf.

The best meatloaf I have even eaten. Mmmmm. I used ground turkey instead of ground chicken, and it was yummy! If you don't own the Biggest Loser Family Cookbook, you should!!

And last but not least....
InstaFriday(Sunday, whatever day):

Who is watching the Bachelor this season? Isn't Tierra Tierrable? This picture was posted on my facebook wall, this week, only hours before she was called a Tierraist. They can't make this stuff up!

Some of our favorite kiddos, all in one place!

The Kertsons, who have been living with my parents for 7 months, moved back to the Bay Area this week. It's so awesome to have them back!

This weekend Steve and I went to Sacramento for a wedding. We were lucky and got to hang out with these two awesome girls, for most of the time we were there!

Hope you all have a great week! It's a short week for us, and we head to Yosemite on Friday. Woooo! (I REALLY hope to blog before then. :)

Recipe of the Week

Week 2!

This week was crazy, so we ate a lot of leftovers...but, last weekend I made this super yummy soup! My crockpot is my new friend. If you haven't checked out before, you should. The author takes normal recipes, and makes them healthier!

This soup was filling and yummy. We both loved it!


Last Saturday, some friends took us paintballing. I was scared, but I ended up having a BLAST! We can't wait to go again!

A sunrise from the week. Perhaps, the only great thing about getting up so early. :)

My sweet husband surprised me by spending some Amazon money on Downton Abbey, Season 3. This is awesome because the season isn't over yet. So, we sat down and finished the whole season, this weekend. So good. So heartbreaking. Never have I been so attached to a show and its characters!

I am obsessed with owls! I <3 market.="" p="" world="">

Have a great week!
