What's cooking this week?

Oh YAY, my first meal plan for 2014! I suppose I better make it a good one and start the new year off right! I just noticed that I'm planning an awful lot of meat-free dishes, so I'm throwing a steak in there for Hubby...
Tonight: Mediterranean Chicken Pizza
Monday: Sweet Butternut Squash Soup, Pecan Pear Salad
Tuesday: Cucumber Avocado Subs
Wednesday: Cannellini Bean Soup and steak for Hubs
Thursday: Veggie Fajitas

This past week has been amazing, we had a great visit with my parents. My Mom's wish was for a picture with Ella by the Christmas tree...wish granted! We had a cozy little Christmas celebration with them on New Years Day. Ella's first Christmas is officially and it was a memorable one for sure. I'm not sure who is happier in this photo!
Grandma and Grandpa spoiled the peanut like it was their job (which I'm pretty sure it is). There was lots of smiles and giggles all week long. We ate a ton of good food, which is all the more reason to kickstart some healthy eating starting NOW! 
We also fit in some serious shopping with gift cards and Christmas cash! I really took advantage of the whole "treat yo self" mentality for both Ella and I! Oh how I LOVE shopping with my girl! Daddy better watch out, we are a dangerous pair! These are some of the goodies we came home with this week!

I'm very pleased with our finds! Ella is going to love her Sophie the Giraffe teether I just know it! Hopefully my new running shoes give me the incentive to get back into the swing of things. Since I've gotten an early start today maybe I should get on that? Honestly, it is WAY more tempting to lay around all day (as much as you possibly can with a 4 month old) to rest up for reality tomorrow! Ella is taking her morning snooze and maybe I will too. Run or nap, hmmmmm...decisions, decisions! We'll see! I hope you are all enjoying your first weekend of 2014!!!
