Spring Into Tuesday

We are having gorgeous weather here and I thought it was a good day for a spring outfit. Here's my look...

Pink top - Target
Floral skirt - H&M
Nude peeps - DSW
3 strand faux pearls - Target

Unfortunately we do not have an H&M in Houston. What is up with that??? So all my H&M stuff comes from my travels. This particular skirt came from a store in Sweden (where H&M is originally from). It's like Starbucks there...there's one on every corner. My friend, Liberty and I hit up as many H&M's as we could while visiting. Man that was a great shopping day. H&M if you happen to stumble across this, PLEASE OPEN A STORE IN HOUSTON!!!

So on to my food. No pic for lunch since I had leftovers of my cilantro-lime chicken. Tabitha, to answer your question, the original recipe came from Pam at For The Love of Cooking. I like a

For dinner tonight I tried a modified meatloaf recipe. My husband loved it and I highly recommend it.

1 pkg of Turkey Store lean ground turkey
1 envelope of Lipton Onion Soup Mix
3 mushrooms diced
2 brown rice unsalted rice cakes (grounded in a processor or coffee bean grinder)
1 egg
1/4 c Ragu light spaghetti sauce

Mix all together. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. I made 8 servings (to keep sodium levels decent). I served this meal with 1/2 cup garlic mashed sweet potatoes, and 1 cup green beans with chopped onions. This meal was 23 g of protein, 31 g of carbs, 9 g of fat and a total of 287 calories. Will topped his with ketchup, but I didn't think it needed it.

Tonight I did a 30 minute arm workout with my trainer. Tabitha, I feel you! I know you had an arm workout too. My arms will be hurting tomorrow. Then I did about 30 minutes on the treadmill. Burn baby burn!

So here is a look at my Austin pics. We went to Austin because my brother and his girlfriend did the MS150 bike ride from Houston to Austin. If you are interested in seeing more pics, click here.

You look a perfect example of Spring, I love the colors and flowers. I love H&M they have the cutest stuff for me and my kids, it wasnt until about a year ago that they came to Cali, so hang in there I bet they are coming soon.

That bat pic is a little freaky, it looks like it's from a scary movie or something!

And your hubby is too cute!

Sheila said...

Those are BATS in the sky? Holy moly.

There isn't an H&M in my city either. We don't even have an Ikea! What is up with that??

I had to show my hubby your bat picture, wow, that is so freaky!

cute outfit...boo to no h&m here!

Leslie- yeah I sometimes have issues with the ankle strap thing, but the flesh tone ones work well.

Yes the bats were a little freaky. It's only the begining of the season. By August there are a ton more blackeing the sky. Crazy huh?

Thanks for the idea! We just reviewed Ragu Light and really liked it. We used it in a turkey chili and it worked out great.
