I confess...I made these Philly Cheese Steak stuffed shells Monday night for dinner and I ended up using too much Alfredo sauce. I know, it's hard to believe there could ever be too much Alfredo sauce, but there actually is. The good thing about that though, you can just scrape some of the sauce off with a spoon. It was really good, and probably one of the messiest meals I've made so far. I'll post the recipe, soon!

I confess...seeing this ad this morning made me so excited/relieved! I spent a good chunk of Sunday afternoon (in between my two naps lol) creating a photo book through Shutterfly, and completely forgot about completing it. Their 8x8 books are free (you just have to pay shipping, $10.) It is normally $19.99 + $10 shipping so I'll be happy take a $20 off coupon code. I am making a photo book of our honeymoon! I had a bigger photo book made of our engagement pictures, and we used that as our guest book at our wedding. I love it, and love having it out for us and company to look through whenever they are over.

I confess...yesterday this showed up on my timehop. Which means six years ago yesterday Matthew text me for the first time and that's when we started "talking" and getting to know each other. I remember I was sitting in my Spanish class when he text me and I got really excited, and it just went from there! It's funny how I remember these things. I posted a simple ":)" as my Facebook status that night, because we had been texting nonstop all day. I'll always be thankful he text me asking about his birthday card that I completely forgot to give him on his actual birthday :) 

I 92 days I'll be on our girls trip with these girls (and my sister's best friend!) We are SO excited and have been looking forward to this trip since we went on our last one together when we were 16! More on that tomorrow :)

I confess...I grilled burgers last night and they actually turned out good! Last time I tried to do that they fell apart and were not too good lol. Matthew's back was really hurting last night so I insisted he lay on the couch and let me grill them. He usually does alllll the grilling and loves doing it, so it was a treat getting to grill last night! I definitely made a bigger mess and was running around trying to make sure everything was prepped....he always makes grilling look like a breeze. Also, SO PUMPED we're getting into grilling season!! 

I confess...I tried painting my nails on my lunch break yesterday and I didn't give them enough time to dry and they were messed up by time I walked back into the office. So I touched them up last night! Spring nail polish is finally making it's debut, and I am just too happy about it.

I confess...we were in bed last night by 9:15. Matthew turned on How I Met Your Mother and I could hardly keep my eyes open for the whole episode. I always feel SO much better the next morning when we go to bed early. 

Linking up with Caitlin today!

  2. Ah I want to go on a girl's trip!!! And that pasta looks incredible. Thanks for linking up!

  3. That's an awesome deal on Shutterfly!!! We love the 8x8 books and we try to make "year books" with them :) What a sweet wife grilling some amazing burgers! I definitely leave all the grilling (and meat cooking for that matter) to Stephen lol I went to bed at midnight last night to watch Stephen's launch and I'm fading so quick right now... was hoping for a 8:30 or 9 bedtime tonight but he'll be getting home from work around that time. Guess I'll catch up on Saturday but going to bed early is so nice.

  4. Hey there Shelby, I just found your blog and love it! I too need to cash in on my 8x8 book, but I'm pretty sure it won't happen, haha...

  5. How I met your mother is such a good show! I just started watching it on Netflix and have seen about 5 episodes. Barney is my favorite character. He's legend *wait for it* dairy ;)
