Random Thoughts and Recommendations!

Sooo now that I am back to working full-time, it's back to make up my weekly meal plans and get my ass back on track (I think its growing again. So not cool). I do actually enjoy sitting down and planning out dinners for the week. BUT with the commute, I'm like way tired after I get home from training so if I don't plan ahead, it's not pretty people.

But so far this week, I have been pretty good ::pats self on back::, and I am hoping to keep this UP!

Pork Tenderloin w/ mashed cauliflower (not quite mashed taters but still tasty!)

I finally (finally!) bought a new phone! Remember when I was so sad about my blackberry dying? Jason bought me a temp phone from Ebay and it was terrible! The thing froze all the time and sent texts and/or called people r.a.n.d.o.m.l.y. ALL the time. BUT last week, T-Mobile was running a great special! All their smartphones were free. Cha-Ching! I had to pay up front but will get a full rebate back. I know, most of you have an iPhone, (though my provider doesn't offer it) but I am quite pleased with my new phone!

Since I have a nice new phone, I have normal apps again! Come find me on Instagram: NikkiC1284
I need a new brand of mascara, ya'll. I use Maybelline Full & Soft, currently. It has been my go-to mascara for-ever. I used to love it but lately I'm not impressed. It was always great and cheap but I think it's time to move on. What do YOU use?! I need suggestions!

And just because I love this photo: Jason & Gigi were watching the rain last night and I caught a great photo (or two) of my loves




  1. I love mashed cauli so much. I tried to get Jeff to eat it but he's a baby!

  2. I have yet to try mashed cauliflower. I love cauliflower so I guess I should give it a try. And broccoli slaw is my obsession.

    I use Maybelline Great Lash. I have tried others both high end and cheap and I always come back to it. I haven't tried Dior Show though which is what everyone talks about, but I'm happy just paying $5 a tube instead of like $25!

  3. The dishes look so good, thanks for sharing :-) Yay for a new (free)phone, so jealous you have instagram now haha!

  4. I use E.L.F. mascara. It's like $2, infused with minerals, and more importantly - DOESN'T CLUMP!

  5. Mascara is the one thing I refuse to leave the house without. My go-to is Avon SuperShock. It's amazing for volume. And the best part, sometimes you can get 2 for around $8.

  6. I used to use Full and Soft too. My go-to these days is the Covergirl kind in the red tube. That's right, I don't even know what it's called. But I like it and it's cheap!

  7. Your meals look delicious :)
    I am thinking of doing a weekly meal plan post for this week..hmm :)
