Okay so I know I’m being totally obnoxious announcing my birthday in my post title like that but I am just a huge fan of birthdays. LOVE them and yes even at 42 I still love and get excited about my birthday :) Except you know you’re getting old when you ask for a chair for your birthday. Yep a chair. A nice comfy, sink right in and have a little nap chair lol. I asked my hubby for a chair thinking we’d go out and look for one together only he surprised me and came home with one for me on Saturday. I had to stay hidden in the bedroom until he got it all set up in the living room. I was so nervous to come out and see what my surprise was. I was shocked to see a chair sitting there and I was even more surprised that I loved it! :) It’s perfect for my small space because it’s a really small recliner for the corner by the window. I didn’t even know they made them this small.
Definitely the highlight of last week goes to the Catalina Taco Salad recipe from Taste of Home. Such a simple recipe but it was very filling. The only changes I made was I used black beans instead of pinto and left out the onion because I was too lazy to chop one up :)
