I recently stumbled upon this "weekly wrap-up" post idea on one of the blogs that I follow and immediately fell in love with it! I did, however, make a few slight adjustments and included my weekly menu planning. I love the idea of a single post to recap a few of my favorite instagram photos, blog posts, blogs, what's been going on in my life, and of course, what we've been eating for dinners. So, without further ado, here is my FIRST weekly wrap-up.
+ Love, love, love my dog! He loves to shake a paw for a treat.
+ Went for a walk around the neighborhood -- we are so lucky to live near the ocean and to have such a beautiful view!
+ Doing some exercise with our new exercise band.
+ Snow in March? Really?!

+ Homemade Laundry Detergent & Wash Jar by The Paper Mama.
+ DIYs to try this Weekend by Paper & Stitch.
+ Free Printable Labels by A Thrifty Mrs.
Favorite Blog of the Week:
+ Fiery and Opinionated - not only am I lucky to have her on my sidebar, I absolutely love to read Heather's blog because she always has something funny to say. She also takes some pretty sweet photos! You should stop by her blog and get to know her!
+ Started our spring cleaning over the weekend and have now have a huge pile of clothes to donate. I still have so many more clothes that I could donate, but aren't ready to let them go yet.
+ Participated in earth hour on Saturday. Lights out for one hour! I enjoyed lighting a bunch of candles and hanging out..! It was kind of romantical, LOL.
+ Trying to reduce our carbon footstep around the house. It's amazing what a little white vinegar can do! I am hoping to make our own laundry soap soon.

+ Tuesday: Teriyaki Chicken, Potatoes & Salad.
+ Wednesday: Beef Stroganoff.
+ Thursday: Leftovers - Beef Stroganoff & Salad.
