I hate that people hate Mondays. (Not saying I’m not included on occasion.)
Thing is, Monday is like a clean slate, every week! Or if you really wanna go far, like another New Year’s day. It’s the perfect time to plan the week, reasses your goals and make it your Best Week Ever.
This weekend was a bit mellow over here. We spent some time with the family on Saturday night and did not even pretend to watch the Super Bowl. We did, however, get to watch Madonna’s half time show, wasn’t it amazing??
I also finally got around to getting into a little Martha Stewart DIY project I stumbled upon online. You all know that I have about zero skills when it comes to anything DIY. But this looked easy enough to take at least baby steps.
We have been growing a bunch of herbs on our balcony and I wanted to spruce up our planters a bit. Here’s a few pics of what the finished project should look like:
Super cute, right? It’s literally just chalkboard spray paint, which you can pick up at just about any hardware store. If I can do this DIY project, that means anyone can. And by me, I of course mean washing the pots, taking them downstairs and handing the fiancé a can of spray paint.
Friday nights have also turned into new recipe nights around here. And when it comes to cooking, that’s not something we take baby steps about. This Friday, we dove right in by making a paella with no recipe. We literally just drank some wine, threw some ingredients together and watched the thing cook for what seemed like forever. Did I mention we drank some wine while we did this? (Paella’s take about a million years to cook.)
I’m not going to lie, especially for our first time and considering we didn’t use a recipe, the paella was pretty good. With some refinements and a little more practice, I’ll be sure to share some Paella highlights on a future Foodie Friday!
