It's taken a few days, but I'm finally feeling like I'm on the mend. That cold I caught toward the end of last week took its toll, and I had to use every ounce of strength within me to operate, maybe, at 40%.

As it's Easter, and we'll be spending part of the day with my family, I'm grateful to be feeling better. If you're celebrating today, I hope you enjoy the day and are able to make some beautiful memories with your loved ones!

Before I get swept away by the day, here's what I've planned for dinner at our house this week.

Hey guys! Happy Friday!

I'm a bit under the weather and battling my first spring cold... Right before the holiday weekend. Lucky me.

Even luckier? I'm going to try and work from home while taking time to rest while the kids are home from school. Send healing vibes and lots of encouragement today!

Hopefully, you're faring better where you are. To help you kick off your weekend, here's the next batch of Tidbits for you to read at your leisure.

Ode to the Cardigan

Lightweight cardigans are a great addition to any wardobe to add style without adding bulk.

In the spirit of "less is more," I've been chipping away at my weed-out-the-wardrobe project. Rather than try and tackle the whole project at once, I've been focusing on small sections each night. Pants... then dresses... then skirts... and so on. This way, I don't wind up feeling overwhelmed. While the project doesn't get done all at once, it does feel like I'm accomplishing something.

It's taken a few weeks, but I'm finally finished sorting through all the clothes in my closet. I now have a better sense of which items need replacing and which areas need supplementing. After buying new pants that actually fit the current version of my body, I'm ready to shift gears... I'm ready to concentrate on another crucial element of my wardrobe.

What's for Dinner: April 14 - April 20

Looking for dinner inspiration? Here's what I've planned for dinner at our house this week!

After a trying week, I feel so grateful for the beautiful weather we have here this weekend. Granted, Saturday started off wet and rainy... But the weather cleared up, the sun came out, and now it finally feels like spring.

Stephen has been away for work for the past several days and comes home tonight. His return is another thing to be grateful for... Because, honestly, my entire being is exhausted. Juggling a demanding week at work with a demanding duo of kiddos at home definitely took its toll.

(Though, this moment melted some of my stress away.)

I've already joked that I'm ready to relinquish all parenting duties as soon as Stephen walks through the door so I can go... away. Likely to that cute little coffee place in town we discovered a few weeks ago... Because I'd love to order a coffee that I could sip without having to reheat it twelve thousand times...

Before I disappear, here's what I've planned for dinner at our house this week.
