On Saturday AB came over for a little quality friend time and I made a healthy dinner--of salmon cakes (made with whole wheat, gluten free breadcrumbs), grilled squash, steamed broccoli and quinoa (cooked in vegetable stock)—for us to enjoy. It was a yummy and filling meal; and for dessert: Chobani non-fat vanilla Greek yogurt, topped with honey and fresh strawberries.

I nested quite a bit this weekend; cleaning, straightening, and buying small items to start freshening my place up for spring. I found these adorable chair cushions at Marshall’s—one in black paisley and one in pink paisley. They are SO soft and comfortable—perfect for warm spring days and cool summer nights to be spent on the balcony.
I also finally framed this adorable picture of my two best friends and I (my sisters!) that was taken at my birthday outing (which you can read about here) and added it to the sofa table where all the other pictures of us together reside. This little table makes my heart smile.
A super soft shag area rug, and curtains for my living room rounded out the weekend’s purchases, but I have yet to organize them.

For Saturday errands I kept it casual in jeans, a sweatshirt and leopard flats. I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect pair of leopard print flats and I was thrilled to find them on Friday afternoon, and to have cause to wear them right away. They have padding at the arch of the foot that work as tiny miracles since I have ‘falling’ arches that cause quite a bit of pain when I’ve been wearing flats for several hours. Their comfort makes them the number one footwear candidate for my day trip to NYC next weekend (I’m taking the young man for his birthday, but he doesn’t know. Shhhh!)
How was your weekend? Did you enjoy the Easter holiday? Do share!
