1. We finally went to the Willow Tree Cafe in Sanford and got some real German food and beer. Next time we need 4 people so we can get a boot of beer! Any takers :)

2. I love Meyer's soaps but their kind of expensive so when I saw this little one in the dollar section at Target it went in the cart. Radish smells good.

3. Brad Paisley was at Amway, best part Rascal Flatts came out and played a couple songs!! My dream come true!!!!

Ipsy review

I signed back up for Ipsy in November and finally got my bag in January. I don't love it but I don't hate it so the $10 this month was not a total waste. I would only buy 1 thing on my own the rest I wouldn't think twice about so once the sample sizes run out that's just fine with me. 

The entire bag

Leave in conditioner. I would buy this after testing it out. It makes my hair fell extra soft the next day

Lip stain, it's my color but I don't really wear lipstick

Not greasy which is great but I don't like experimenting with new lotions, I like the one I've been using for 12 years

Gold eye liner is pretty but it's not for my everyday use

This was the only thing that didn't give much info on the product. It's ok, but not sure the purpose of it

Three: apartment style

We got to sign our lease a little earlier than we would have liked, but now have 3 full weeks to transfer everything over into the new apartment which will be less stressful. We get the keys to our new place March 4th!! Since moving into an apartment about 100 sq feet less I've been pinning like crazy trying to organize everything out in my head on where we're going to put all of our crap.

1. Our new place doesn't have a fireplace :/ I am famous for my holiday mantels so I am now in search of a big mirror like this, this is perfect!!

2. Gold seems to be the new trend lately and everything I see on Pinterest is gold polka dots, they are so cute. I already have a blank canvas so when I get time I will make something like this.

3. We've found the shelving will solve a lot of our "where are we going to put this random thing" issue. I've already priced out different sized shelves like these at Ikea. I'm thinking over the couch like below and over the bed if I can't figure something else out for that space.

Frozen meals

I've been reading a lot about frozen meals on Pinterest and thought I'd give it a try since I usually work at night and don't feel like cooking when I get home. I got some ideas of what meals would be good, made a list and got all the ingredients. It was an expensive trip to the grocery store but I did get enough food for 10 dinners and a weeks worth of lunches.

After eating out so much and swinging by a drive thru on the way home frequently and seeing that most of our money was going to eating out I knew we needed to change our eating habits. We did get a new knives, an apron and a cutting bored for Christmas so that's a nice little bonus when preparing food.

All the dinners are to be thawed out before cooking (I just put them in the fridge the night before) , or just thrown in the crock pot. So far I've made 7 meals at night in a row. That's pretty impressive!

Our freezer if full of gallon zip lock bags

Dated and ingredients listed

Single serve mugs that go from the oven to the table

I love this thing


Other than finally putting away the Christmas decorations this week in 3 pictures...

1. My sister and her boyfriend now live 10 minutes from me, instead of 45!

2. I've been doing the frozen meal thing. I made enough for 10 dinners after separating meat and veggies out. Thaw and cook, easy as that.

3. Cooking with a UCF apron makes everything easy :) Oh and I lightened my hair a tad

BOUNS: H&M has an extra 50% off their clearance right now. I got 2 blazers, 2 cardigans, a dress, 3 swim suit pieces, and a hair accessory for $42. If it wasn't on sale it would have been $219!!

I've been slacking since the near year in posts so here is what we've been up to this past week:

1. Our lease is up at the end of March so we've been stressing about where to live (driving by day and night, tours, calling to find the right place) and finally settled on one! And it's much cheaper than where we are now!!!!

2. The weather has been breaking records this week with the cold. Many nights were spent by the fire with hot chocolate

3. We take a big trip with Ryan's family each year, in June we're going to the Keys!!! I've only been once on a cruise stop so it will be cool to explore more than Duval St.
