A Week in My Life: Week 20

Here's what the past week looked like:

A week or so ago Luis and I went to Scoops Ice Cream with my brother, Andrew, and his girlfriend, Bailey, when we saw this sign. It made me really happy.

Daffodils have the ability to completely brighten my mood. 

One of my spring cleaning objectives was to donate all of the clothes that I haven't worn within the past year. I got rid of three bags!

I made some corn tortillas earlier this week. I really dislike the ones that are sold in the grocery stores. They are pretty cardboard-y in their texture. I realized that you can make them without a tortilla press- you just need a really thick, heavy book and plastic wrap.

This is a really weird statement, but there's something about fresh fish that makes me happy...

Ever since the weather improved, Luis and I have been walking everywhere we can. I got really sunburned the other day!

This here is one of my favorite meals to date. It's Pecan Crusted Chicken over a salad with homemade honey dijon dressing. I found the recipe in a magazine but if it sounds good, someone copied it to this message board. Trust me, it's incredible.

Another amazing dish are these Thai Style Green Beans. I always struggle with cooking beans because they are naturally bland, but these changed my mind about green beans.

Walking in downtown Kenosha. Signs like these make me happy... and also hungry.

Sorry for the blurriness of this picture. I had to whip out my telephoto lens and that can be shaky if you aren't using a tripod. Male cardinals are gorgeous; this little guy was making my cats freak out. It was pretty amusing.

Where the sidewalk ends. 

The prairie swamps and wetlands of Northeastern Illinois. 

During one of our walks, I encountered two snakes on the path. I hate hate hate snakes. They terrify me and I just can't be near them. Lucky for me, he offered to remove them from the path. I didn't realize he was going to just pick them up. I was cringing the whole time...

Have a lovely weekend!


  1. Pecan crusted chicken, yum!!! Sounds delicious. I used to work at a restaurant and that reminds me of my favorite lunch special to order for my lunch break!

  2. That pecan crusted chicken looks, and sounds, amazing!! Can't wait to make it sometime!! Love the "Will you go to prom with me?" sign. Sounds like a classic 80's movie is being filmed, haha, love it.

  3. It quickly became a classic for us! Oh man... I would have ordered that dish non-stop!

  4. Haha it kind of does! I hope whoever was being asked said yes after all of that effort!
