John and I have been quite busy lately... here's a quick recap of what we've been up to!
By the way, I totally have to work today - someone please tell me I'm not alone. Even John has the day off, and I'm quite jealous! (Although he woke up even earlier than normal to go hunting with Scout... I love to sleep in, so this isn't my idea of a day off!)
Skinny Taste, Bang Bang Chicken
I am officially obsessed with Skinny Taste... last week I made a spiralized zucchini (“zoodle”) salad, and this weekend I made the ever so yummy bang bang chicken salad – amazing! John even ate the leftovers (and he is a bit picky on leftovers... he will tell you he loves them, but it just isn’t true).
On Tuesday I started Pricilla Shirer’s new study on Jonah. I just completed the first week, and so far it is wonderful! I am very much looking forward to getting a few weeks in. I did her study on Gideon a couple years ago and it remains one of my favorites, so I am hoping this study will be equally fabulous.
John has been going down to Patagonia, AZ almost every free weekend with Scout for Mearns quail season. Mearns quail are a special kind of wild quail found only in certain parts of southern Arizona, and upland bird hunters fly in from all over for the chance to find them. The season ends at the beginning of February, so he is trying to get in as much hunting as possible. His favorite spot is only about 15 minutes from the Mexican border and there are signs posted everywhere warning about illegal immigration, not to mention border patrol security checkpoints... crazy!
John and I saw American Sniper this weekend and really enjoyed it. I thought Bradley Cooper did a great job, and he has come a long way from The Hangover... (thankfully!). Have you seen it? If you did, what did you think? Bradley Cooper was nominated for best actor in a leading role for the 2015 Academy Awards... I would love to see him win!
My sister-in-law, Kristine, started blogging! Go say hi and check out her way too perfect baby bump!
(Can you tell this was my Five on Friday post that I didn't get around to writing/posting? I tried!)
