This Weekend

This weekend I... Watched too much basketball. Just kidding, there's no such thing as too much during March Madness! Who's bracket is still alive? Round one went well for me, but I think I'm going downhill from here. My final 4 teams are still hanging in there though!

... Made some delicious meals. We don't normally cook as much on the weekends- we eat out as a date night or finish off leftovers the rest of the weekend. But I was in the mood to cook and one of those meals included roasted cauliflower- my favorite version yet! Just toss the florets in a bag with olive oil and garlic then put them in a (greased) baking dish; sprinkle with a little salt and pepper and roast for 20-25 minutes on 450. After the 20-25 minutes, pull them out, sprinkle parmesan cheese on them and put back in on broil for about 3-5 minutes until they start to brown. OH, YUM!

... Got new running shoes! Jared and I had been saying that after our D.C. half we needed/deserved new shoes. I wasn't sure I needed them but after looking at the soles of mine and then trying on new ones? I could tell mine were worn down and needed to be retired. Plus, the guy at the store was really wanting to make a sale so he threw in 20% off just because. Enter, new Nikes that feel like my feet are on vacation. 

... Attended a bridal shower for one of my cousins. Every time I'm at a bridal shower I want to have mine all over again- is that selfish? ;) I'm excited for their wedding in May- it's just around the corner! Plus my other cousin's brand new baby twins made an appearance and their cuteness was just too much.
... Celebrated our friend's Matt & Cassie and their new baby girl! Funny story, we were all supposed to get together Saturday, but due to a little miscommunication we decided Friday that it wasn't going to be possible. Well it all worked out because Cassie went into labor and had little Ava Rose Saturday! I love you guys, but I might have freaked out if you went into labor while we were there ;) Can't wait to meet that little peanut!

... Realized that Jared and I are horrible at selfies. I mean, how do you guys do it, seriously?! Ours always turn out a mess even after 5-6 attempts. This is as good as it gets, I suppose ;)

... Blinked and our weekend was gone. The weekend flew, but I think that's because it was filled with so many happy moments and reasons to celebrate. I'm excited to conquer another week at work and another week of goals- don't forget about the #4weeksfit challenge! We're linking up the results next Tuesday 3/31! :)

  3. Fun weekend indeed, lady. I am a bigger fan of cauliflower when it's roasted, yummy!

    I think we have similar shoes, girl! My husband found them for me and so far I'm digging them.

    Don't sweat it, I also think of reliving my shower, too. It's just too awesome of a memory right?

  4. I adore roasted cauliflower. So simple and delicious.

    Hurrah for new shoes and a new tiny baby - news heard from afar and not when you were right there. LOL

  5. Your new shoes are adorable and 20% off makes them even better!! :) It takes me and Matthew a couple of tries most of the time to get a good selfie LOL...I have seriously considered getting a selfie stick just for our honeymoon. I hate asking people to take pictures of us, but obviously want some good pictures of us with all the pretty backgrounds so I might just have to get one lol. Glad y'all had a good weekend!!

  7. There is definitely no such thing as too much basketball. And at our house we love roasted cauliflower with broccoli and then take it to the next level with some roasted pine nuts over the top. Roasted veggies are so fantastic! Have a great week.

  8. I love broccoli but have never been able to get on board the cauliflower wagon! That does look pretty tasty though.

  9. Haha I am the same, wedding things always make me want to do mine all over again, such sweet memories! :) Aww, those babies are too cute, so snuggly!

  10. I was trying to do new recipes with cauliflower and have been 50/50 on it being good. Ill have to try roasting it! Oh and those shoes...SUPER cute! Glad you had such a great weekend.

  11. That cauliflower has my mouth watering - putting it on the menu for this week for sure! I LOVE my new Nike Free's - I'm going to buy another pair on Thursday so I don't have to use the same ones indoors and outdoors. I don't even have any guilt about buying them since I hadn't bought new runners in over 4 years - it was a looong time coming

    Sooo many babies to snuggle!

  12. My bracket is busted! I had Iowa State in the final game & Virginia in the final 4. So I'm still 50% hanging in there. The boyfriend and I have a bet going to see who beats who. I'd love that extra $5 in my pocket, but I doubt I get it. Oh well. Looks like you had a fun, busy weekend! And don't worry, I'm not good at selfies either!

  13. I made a similar cauliflower dish and it was so good! Who know veggies could be tasty? ;) And selfies... don't get me started.. we can't even.

  14. Roasted Cauliflower is one of my favorites too!!! :)

  15. Haha, I watched hardly any basketball this weekend, I'm so much less invested this year after not filling out a bracket! You lie, you guys are great at selfies!

  16. Yay for new shoes! I think that's a great post-race reward (and usually necessary after the training miles). Also yay roasted veggies and new babies :)

  17. I love your new kicks!! I have to say I'm in 2 pools at work and not watching any of the games...yet Im in first with one of them LOL! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  18. That cauliflower looks on point. I'm going to try that soon because it looks too good. I'm glad you rewarded yourself with some new shoes. You totally deserve it after you half! Also, Wheat and I can't seem to pull off a respectable selfie, either. I think I'm in the market for a selfie stick, but I also can't get myself to use one of those.

  19. the cauliflower sounds delish. i need to try that. i totally got new shoes after DC as well - mine were well old and needed to be retired, but i blamed it on how soaked they got, sitting in a bag while i flew back - they smelled awful. like, need to be thrown out awful lol.

  23. That sounds like a great weekend! The cauliflower looks so good. I'm going to have to try it.

  24. Totally not selfish for wanting another bridal shower/wedding. I feel that way all the time, esp since Pinterest wasn't that popular when I got married and nowadays I see ideas galore that would have been adorable for ours. Maybe Ill do a big vow renewal one day, hahaha!

  29. I didn't have a chance to comment yesterday, but that cauliflower looks so good! I actually picked up some at Kroger last night to make this week :)
    Extra 20% for the shoes? Lucky duck!

  30. They aren't terrible!!!! I try to get Mark to take selfies but then he purposely puts this angry face on and ruins them. Why can't they get on the selfie train? ;-)
