So what if this is my third post today??!?

So I'm going a little overboard on the posting today, but it's Wishlist Wednesday, Weight Watchers Wednesday, and Big Birthday Reveal so I'm totally allowed the extra postings!

First things first - enter my blog makeover giveaway by clicking here and leaving a comment by March 31 at 8 pm PST.


This is what's on my wishlist this week:

I CAN NOT find a picture of my third want, but I'm going to tell you about it anyway. Private Selection (Kroger / Ralph's Brand) FRIED ICE CREAM ICE CREAM. Delicious. And that's all I have to say about that.



This is another one of my favorite go-to WW recipes. It's very easy to make and yummy.

Chicken Teriyaki with Broccoli
Servings: 4
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 13 minutes
POINTS Value: 5

1 spray cooking spray
2 medium garlic cloves, minced
1 pound uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
4 medium scallions, chopped
1/2 cup fat free chicken broth
2 T. teriyaki sauce
2 cups cooked brown rice
4 cups broccoli

Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add garlic; cook, stirring, about 1 minute. Add chicken; cook until golden brown on all sides, stirring often, about 5 minutes.

Add scallions; cook until soft, stirring, about 2 minutes. Add broth and teriyaki sauce; simmer until chicken is cooked through and sauce reduces slightly, about 5 minutes.

Spoon 1/2 cup of cooked rice into each of 4 shallow bowls; spoon about 1 cup of chicken mixture and 1/2 cup of broccoli over each serving.

* I use frozen broccoli florets and a pack of 10 minute boil in a bag brown rice. I usually don't even add scallions because I never have them fresh on's still an excellent meal!


And just some random tidbits:

~ I am so excited about going home for Easter! Less than 2 weeks until I leave :)

~ I am working on more french memo boards. I'm thinking about selling them on Etsy...I've got two going on right now with LILLY fabric! They're turning out cute - more on that later.

~ Payday is Friday - phew!

~ I'm having a bon voyage party at my apartment on Saturday to say goodbye to my friends that are moving to Seattle. I still haven't decided on a menu! But I know we'll me making mojitos as the cocktail!

~ I have a cupcake tasting on Sunday afternoon. I will be busy making coconut, strawberry, banana, and mint chocolate chip this weekend. Hopefully I'll remember to take some pictures to show you all!

~ Class tonight = LAME


That's it for today (I think)!

I love the L.L. Bean tote! The polka dots make that bag. The ice cream sounds delicious, going home for Easter will be so fun, cupcake tasting sounds like a blast and if you open an Etsy store I want to buy a french memo board. Whew...I think I covered most of it ;)
