Lately + Marvel Giveaway WINNER!

Hey there! We had a whirlwind of a weekend with three different groups of friends coming to visit, but it was so much fun. Now it's Monday and Owen is busy with soccer camp and Luke and I are running all the errands. Here's a bit of what we've been up to lately...

Keith went back to work last week after having nine days off for our move. It was so nice to have him around all week and for us to get some things done around the house. Last week the boys and I got a taste of what our new routine in our new neighborhood is like. I love that pretty much anywhere we need to go is now just a quick drive from our house and that we can walk so many fun places, like the park, a splash pad, school and even a beer garden.

My rug from Wayfair arrived early last week and we love it! I think it really fits perfectly in the space and the pattern will hopefully hide any inevitable stains and wear.

Owen had Summer XP camp last week! He had a great time all week and loved all the outdoor games they did each day as well as the great music! I always think it's so sweet when he comes home singing the songs and doing the hand motions. 

Do you ever give the recipes on boxes or spices a try? I've had success in the past so I gave another one a try last week and we all liked it! I picked up the Bruschetta seasoning at Costco. You basically mix 1/3 a cup of the spice with 1/3 cup of olive oil and toss it together with cherry tomatoes and chicken and bake it in the oven for 30 minutes. We had ours with zucchini zoodles, but it would be great with pasta too. Owen even liked it!

Another new recipe we tried last week, that instantly became a favorite, were these Cajun Baked Salmon Cakes. I've never used canned salmon before, but they sounded really good, so we gave them a try --- I'm so happy we did, because they were fantastic with a little bit of lemon, and they were super easy and quick to put together.

And while we're on the topic of recipes and cooking...

I bought an Instant Pot, but I've yet to use it, so if you have ANY tips or favorite healthy recipes to share please send them my way. I'll be sure to share any that we end up liking too!
