February? Already?

February? Where did you come from you sneaky little guy, you? My February started off on a most excellent note: cheering my favourite Pond Hockey Team on on Lake Windermere surrounded by beautiful mountains with the sun on my face. Though it was incredibly cold all weekend, it was still such a fun time filled with so much laughter I almost see a six-pack (…of beer – ha!). Because I wasn’t actually playing, I can barely skate, I was able to skip a couple games and stay warm. Sorry I’m not sorry, team!

Don’t be fooled by the shining sun!

The day after everyone left we spent cleaning our messy house and I finally tackled my closet. I cannot tell you how fantastic it feels to get rid of 2, yes 2, HUGE garbage bags full of clothes. I wasn’t planning on tackling this resolution of mine just yet, but I was in the cleaning mood and motivated to get rid of items without the emotion. I had to be cutthroat and I might be looking for some pieces in the coming weeks, but it’s only been 2 days and I feel so. much. lighter.

Just the beginning of the closet clean out!

Speaking of lighter, I’m working toward building my knowledge of vegetarian recipes. Before you start judging, just stop. Cool it. Let me finish. I’m not quitting meat all at once because I’ve been eating it for 25 years, well 24 (thanks Mom for your boobs for the first year of my life) and I’d more than likely fall off the wagon if I quit cold turkey (ha!…). SO, I’ve started researching easy meals to make and I hope to start having completely meatless days in the upcoming weeks. If you have any resources you love and reference often, please let me know.

With all of that said, it’s been a successful start to 2014 so far! I’ve uploaded a few videos to my YouTube channel for your eyeballs to watch. :)

Have a wonderful day!

    And you know this short month is going to absolutely fly by! Anyways I have many many meatless meals on my blog that are cheap and easy to whip together. Good luck!


  3. we do meatless meals every other day, and I find most of the recipes on pinterest. One thing that we had recently was the Quinoa Stuffed Peppers from ABeautifulMess.com ( http://www.abeautifulmess.com/2014/01/quinoa-stuffed-bell-peppers.html ) they were SO good! I want to make them again :)
