Weekend Review

This weekend review is going to have some photos from Friday morning when I was hoping for a snow day. 

I seem to be getting a little better at taking pictures throughout my day (since I think blogging works best when posts include pictures that are semi-related to the content .... sometimes).
But I'm still not good at taking said pictures and actually writing a post. 
So then I'm faced with slightly dated pictures for a post that I had planned to write a couple days ago. 
Bleh. There's no excuse either. 
I'm not that busy with student teaching, so I should have all the time in the world. 

Resolution to work on my time management perhaps? 
I think so.

For now though, here's some snapshots from my weekend:
 My car on Friday morning. No snow day for me, but plenty of snow to shovel off my car before I left for student teaching. Not a bad drive either.
 A successful Friday afternoon = a clean driveway!
 Model material here - coveralls rock
 Inspired by cooking with the Pioneer Woman - let's see if this week's menu sticks
I spent part of my Saturday exploring the library, and since I'd created a menu for the week, my brain was still stuck on ideas for cooking. Thus, the abundance of cooking books that came with me from the library. 

So far, the 3 Ingredient Slow Cooker Recipes looks AMAZING. So many great ideas, with only 3 ingredients!
I'm excited to start trying soem of them out in the next few weeks. 
And probably blogging about them too. 

I also wish I had a picture to show you of the amazing pizza I had on my date Friday night. 
Great Plains pizza in Ames is DELICIOUS and FILLING and a FUN place for date night. 
I was so amazed I didn't even think of my camera. 
But  imagine being stuffed after only two slices of pizza. 
And a super thick crust you eat with honey that's on each table. 
Hope everyone has enjoyed their weekend!

  1. Great pictures! I'd love to hear about your cooking...if the menu sticks and how those crockpot recipes go! I've yet to do any crockpot cooking, even though I've had a crockpot since Thanksgiving. Hopefully that will change soon!
