Menu Plan Monday #61

I am a little bummed is my birthday and my hubbins is out of town. But, that is ok because we celebrated yesterday and today when the kiddo gets home we are going to spend the evening watching Drop Dead Fred and eating a Gilmore Girls style feast!

So, this past week was a BLAST! We went to Video Games live at the Heineken Music Hall, this was the gift I gave hubby for his birthday and he loved it. We went and wore our Mass Effect gear. The leggings were a birthday present to me, they are from Black Milk clothing.

Friday night I had a girls night with some lovely ladies I met through the parent group at the teenager's school. We all come from different backgrounds and have kids of all ages..this gave us so much to talk about which is why we were out until midnight! ;) I met a woman that lives in my building who also loves to craft, I am so excited I have someone close by to hang out with when it gets cold! I wore this super cute Win or Die Game of Thrones Dress from Black Milk Clothing which was one of my other presents from the hubby ;)

How cute is this dress?! I seriously can't wait to wear it again.
Saturday hubby had to work and the kiddo was out with friends so it was just me at home. I did a lot of writing and scheduling of posts and lots of housework and my nails. On instagram Sally Hansen is doing a #nailartnov photo prompt so I did my nails chrome with a zebra print on the ring finger. Hubby loved them!

I settled in Saturday night and finally watched The Book Thief, it was fab! I didn't think I would cry quite so much after reading the book but I was terribly mistaken. Watch for a full review coming soon.

Sunday was of course cheer and my birthday celebration. We had grand plans, but the hubby sadly wasn't up to it. He was so sick, so we decided to stay in. We grabbed some yummy food (which you will see on Wednesday), rented Maleficent and enjoyed the night together. I received two tickets to the ballet so the teenager can dress up and enjoy an evening seeing Cinderella at the National Ballet and Opera.

It was a great weekend spent with great people. We missed the Sinterklaas parade, but the weather was crummy so I'm not too year :)

Now for what you really came here for...

Linking up over at Mommy Run Fast and I'm an Organizing Junkie

Breakfast: Banana pancakes with peanut butter and honey. 
Lunch: Chicken salad with balsamic/chicken wrap for the kiddo
Dinner: Gilmore Girls style feast for my birthday: start off with poptarts and donuts, main course will be a pizza stack, edemame (not sure the Lorelai and Rory would eat that but we love it), and fries, dessert will be a selection of candy. We will probably be sick after this, but we'll do our best to consume.

After Monday we will be very good lol

  1. Love that your bday celebration was a Gilmore Girls theme!! That is one of my all time favorite shows! I can't wait until my little lady is old enough to watch it so that I can watch them all again :) Your meal plan looks great, we would love all of it in my house!

  2. Drop Dead Fred was one of my favorite movies as a kid. I need to get it so I can watch it with Kayla!
