Photo Diary: April

1. My mom decided to come up and visit "just because" which was really nice. We took her to one of our new favorite restaurants and I showed her around some of the fun places to look around and shop. Overall, it was a relaxing weekend hanging out with my mom.

2. Nick and I decided to try a Pinterest recipe I found which was enchiladas using a rotisserie chicken. It was a total win and we had a lot of fun in the kitchen together while I assembled them and he made the sauce. If you're interested, here's the recipe: Link!

3. Something else we've been trying is the Trader Joe's Pizza Dough. It's pre-made, it comes unfrozen but we bought one of all 3 flavors and put them in the freezer until we wanted them. The best one so far is the original flavor, it's slightly sweet and sooooo yummy. It's also fun to make and even though I didn't make the dough, I still feel like a little kitchen rock star when I'm making it!

4. We rarely shop for groceries at Safeway, but sometimes you can find some great deals, like hellooooo $2.99 for Ben and Jerry's! My all time favorite flavor is half baked and oh my goodness I can eat the entire pint in a sitting. It's real brownies, real cookie dough, not that fake flavorless candy stuff other people use and the ice cream itself is really yummy- it's just hard to beat!

5. For Easter we made a meal way too big for the 2 of us (yay leftovers!) including a 3 layer homemade carrot cake. This was both of our first times attempting a homemade carrot cake and it turned out AMAZING. My main job in preparing the cake was shredding the carrots leaving my fingers a lovely shade of...you guessed it, orange!

6. I don't have too many bright lip colors, but this is my favorite. It's 457 Wild Orchid by Revlon and it doesn't appear too intimidating in the photo, but let me tell ya, it's bold and in your face- perfect for spring and summer for a pop of color! I've been loving it so far and can't wait to pull it out some more :)

I decided to do another shortened photo diary this month because let's face it, the things that appear to be worth documenting in my life are about food and I'm not ashamed, I love food, but it's gonna get pretty repetitive after a while! However, none of my photos came from Instagram this month so yay me for being able to share some original stories!

I hope you've all had a good month of April and let's hope those April showers really do bring May flowers cause I know we're all ready for some warm, sunny spring weather!
