I've been a little MIA this week...again. It's funny, once I get one thing in life in order, I forget about another. For instance, Jared and I kinda' rocked this week getting to the gym, cooking healthy meals and getting stuff done around the house. However, that means I didn't have enough time for blogging or sleeping. There's no way any human can get everything done that they need to in one day. I refuse to believe it! Wake up, work, hit the gym, shower, come home, make dinner, clean up from dinner, take care of other odds and ends around the house... and BAM! It's 8:30 or 9 already. By that point I just want to spend some quality time with Jared and most nights, I do!
So another blabbering about nothing. I finally showed up today so here are five awesome things on this Friday:

This delicious turkey chili with sweet potatoes I made this week. It cooked so deliciously in the crockpot and it's got a kick to it which we loved! Perfect for these ridiculously cold days we're having. I just checked-- it's only going to get up to 18° tomorrow, brrr!
|This wasn't cooked yet- I, of course, forgot to take a picture of the final product.|

Speaking of cold temperatures, Jared and I have been obsessing over vacation ideas for this year. Usually we have our travels planned out pretty far in advance, but this year has been a little bit different. We're doing a couple long weekends away, but still keep longing for that week-long beach trip together. We're getting closer and closer to hitting "BOOK IT" and I can't wait!

My friend Lacey and I were able to grab dinner this week and catch up. I know I've probably said this before, but I don't have a ton of close friends. Lacey is that person who I can tell anything in the world to and never feel judged or feel stupid. In fact, she'll probably feel the same way I'm feeling ;) It's so nice to have a friend I can say that I've known for over 15 years!! She's truly my lifelong friend.

A small part of me got excited about baseball this week. I know, I know- it's February. But once football is over I need SOMETHING to look forward to in the sports world. I'm crossing my fingers to get to opening day one of these days, but regardless, I'm ready for some hot dates at the ballpark.

It's Valentine's Day weekend, of course! Jared won at life last year and I have no doubt he'll be adorable and creative again this year. We're all about staying in as opposed to hitting up an overcrowded restaurant these days and I'm looking forward to a fun night in with my man :)
