Favorite Splurge Meal + Weekend Recap

Today I have a weekend recap for you but, before I get into that, I must say that last Thursday night, while Piper was at Nina's house, I had my all-time favorite splurge meal with my husband: sesame chicken with fried rice. My awesome husband even got us chocolate for dessert, too! Talk about an indulgence.

This meal is what reminded me once again that my weight-loss journey can't be an "all or nothing" journey; I don't have to deprive myself of the food I love to lose weight. I just have to moderate how often I splurge on these kind of meals.

Now, let's get to the rest of the weekend, shall we!


Our Friday was pretty chill. During the day, Piper made her great-grandma (Busha) a picture frame for her birthday.

In the evening, we went over to our Busha's house to celebrate her birthday with some cake. It was just a small group of us and it was really nice to spend some time there with Nick's side of the family.


Saturday morning started out wonderfully with a pedicure next to one of my best friends! My friend, Mindy, is having her first baby in a couple weeks and it was so nice that we got in a little girl time before the big day! I am so beyond excited for her!

In the afternoon, Piper ran around the house playing with her toys while Nick worked on the bathroom renovation upstairs. While Piper played with her toys, I worked next to her on some blog posts before starting dinner. I made turkey meatloaf (sharing the recipe for this meatloaf tomorrow!) and it turned out great!

Saturday evening, I dropped Piper and Nick off at the YMCA to go swimming while I got some grocery shopping done. I managed to grab a strawberry milkshake from Chick-Fil-A and got back to the Y just in time for the pool to close for the evening.

The swimming really tuckered Piper out! It was a great way to end the day.


On Sunday morning, Nick left the house early for sound check at church. He played guitar at church while Piper and I stayed home. I forgot to secure us a ride so, we missed out on service. Sometimes it's a pain to only have one vehicle.

On Sunday evening, we had Nick's mom and step-dad over for dinner. I made Turkey Lasagna for dinner (which I filmed the process and will be sharing on YouTube, soon!) and, I'll be working my way through the remainder of the leftovers during lunch today!

Readers, what's your favorite splurge meal?
