Five on Friday

Yay for Friday! 

Linking up with NatashaDarciChristina and April for a little Friday fun! Let's get to it!
We have been sticking to our goal and cooking lots! Two of our favorite meals this week...

Salmon is so delicious. We just put it in foil with some lemon, salt and pepper at 400 degrees for 20 min and voila! Then I serve with corn on the cob (cause we love it, you could do brown rice!) and broccoli. And then we also really liked Lettuce Burgers this week. Just normal burgers (lean meat) with  veggies, avocado and sauces. And if your Rob, a fried egg for a little kick. He loves it!

The planning has started! At the end of the season (before we head back to the states for a few months) we are headed on an Italian adventure! This is probably the trip I am most excited for. Gelato, pasta, beaches, beautiful history...what more could you ask for?! We are very excited and grateful for the opportunity. It is about 8 hours away from us...8 hours. That is basically nothing for a roadtrip in Texas:)

It has been a little bit of a tough week here. It's just been one of those weeks. I won't bore you with the details but you know just a crazy week. Robert and I are clinging to this beautiful verse...


I got this journal for Robert for his birthday back in August and we have had the best time with it! Every day you have a little space to share a snippet of your day and you do it for 5 years. So each year you can see what you did on that day the years before. We have really enjoyed this and know we will even more in the years to come. It would be a wonderful Valentines gift!

Robert planned our date night last week and it was so fun! We had breakfast for dinner and he made a mini golf game for the apartment! It was a blast. So need an at home date idea? There ya go! He used cardboard to make the hole, ropes for the course and a broom for the putter! It really was one of the best dates ever (and very inexpensive!).

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Our weekend will consist of basketball, relaxing and some superbowl fun! Have a great day friends, so glad you stopped by!
