{life} taking a little break!

Don't be alarmed! I promise I will be back. I am going to write a post to publish on Sunday with the winner of my giveaway and a post to publish on Tuesday for Tuesday Ten! My boyfriend lives in NYC and is coming to visit me for a week sooo needless to say I will not be blogging! I know that y'all understand. :)

BF & I in the Keys during my spring break. :)

Oh... by the way, after that is SPIRIT WEEK. The week after that is Recruitment.
Good luck to all Panhellenic women during recruitment this year!


I will try my hardest to post and read your blogs during the next three weeks...
But I'm not promising anything!

It is about to get a little crazy around here.

Part of my lovely pledge class during last year's recruitment.
This is our last recruitment. We're the old ones now. Ah!

Don't fret though, I have some fun recipes to share with y'all today!

I'm a planner. AKA I already have a few things planned out that I am going to feed Seth while he is here. I never, ever get to cook for him since he lives so far away. I hate it! I have to suffer through hearing about his dinners every night. The kid eats tuna fish. Straight out of a can. And Chipotle. LOTS of Chipotle. The other night he was excited because he bought chicken from the grocery store. When I asked him how he was going to cook it he said "On the stove?" No sides. Just chicken.

He clearly needs me around. :-P

Soooo without further adieu, here are a few more ideas for recipes!
I probably will not be making individual blog posts and taking photos of these dishes.
BF thinks my blog is adorable buuuut I can already feel the judgmental stare when I hike on over to the window with our plates to take some pictures. No thank you. I'll just let the pros handle this one.

Steak with a Creamy Whiskey Mushroom Sauce - Recipe by Steamy Kitchen.
I'm going to serve these steaks with my Caramelized Onion Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Penne a la Betsy - Recipe by The Pioneer Woman
Serving this alone. Butter counts as a side right?
Sweet Potato Fries with a burger on the side. ;) - Recipe by Cookie and Kate.

To make up for the butter and the cream and the carbs and the meat, I am also going to make some low-fat, low-carb turkey and veggie stuffed peppers. Found the recipe on No picture for this one. Just imagine it. It is going to be FABULOUS.

That is all that I have come up with so far but I'm super excited that Publix has a lot of the ingredients I need on sale this week. It's like they knew of my planning schemes. :) 

I will miss y'all and will try my best to catch up with your blogs as soon as I have time again!

Keep up with me on Twitter and don't forget to enter my giveaway!
It closes tomorrow at 11:59 PM.


  1. I'm so excited for recruitment!
    Have a wonderful week with your bf! He's a cutie =]

  2. My husband and I totally have a pic in front of that same Keys monument! Enjoy your time with him!

  3. Ah, no way! Penne la Betsy is the best. I featured that on my blog the other day too and am planning on cooking it on Tuesday (haha there's that planner!) I feel for you with your bf not living close. I've done long distance for a year, and about to do it again. I HATE to hear about him eating pb&j for dinner :( have so much fun!

  4. You will be missed! But so enjoy the time with your boyfriend! WOO HOO


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I love hearing from y'all! <3 Jen
