It’s Okay to Order Take Out

Good day my friends and happy St. Patty’s day!

I’m not at all Irish and don’t usually celebrate this day whole lot, but someday I’d like to get more into it and make green foods and eat corned beef and cabbage! I really want to make this recipe for corned beef and cabbage soup…

It looks SO good!

If you plan to celebrate today, be safe and have fun!


This weekend was sure a lazy one for me and I loved it.

A few scenes from the weekend…

A humongo salad loaded with lots of goodies!



Cheering on Kevin and Dana as they ran the Get Lucky half-marathon. I decided to sit out the 7k this year. I signed up and everything but just wasn’t feeling ready for it or up to it so I decided just to spectate this year. I had a blast!

The boys did great!

And pizza…


As you can see I wasn’t really in the mood for much meal prep this weekend. We ordered more take out this weekend then we usually do in about 2-3 months! It’s definitely okay to have this kind of weekend every once in a while if you ask me.

We watched a couple of movies, and had a quiet, relaxing, and fantastic weekend. How was yours?!

How often do you order take out? What is your favorite take out food?

Our go-to is usually Chipotle, but every now and then we will go for Chinese or pizza.

  1. Awww – you are the cutest cheerleader EVER!! And I hear you on the takeout weekends. Thankfully, we have a grocery store right behind us so we can typically go grab something quick to make and avoid take out but pizza is usually the winner in our house 🙂

      Yes, we usually try to avoid it also, but this weekend there was no such thing happening!

  2. I know EXACTLY where you are standing for spectating – sorry if that sounds stalker-ish. I just LOVE that course. I used to run downtown with my Dad during the lunch hour while I was in college and we would run by the river a lot. 🙂

  3. Looks like a great weekend!! I had a great weekend also! I worked but work is fun so it doesn’t feel stressful. Then on Sunday I relaxed and worked out 🙂 Love the take out!!! Egg Rolls are my favorite!
