You guys! I’m so obsessed with these homemade bagels!

Bagels and cream cheese are one of my favorite on the go breakfasts. I mean, what can be easier than slicing a bagel in half and spreading a generous amount of cream cheese on both halves? Yes, both halves. Cuz I like my cream cheese on a lot of things, especially bagels.

Happy Saturday!

I hope you’re going to have a better weekend than I will. I think I caught a cold on Thursday. Because suddenly it’s hard to breathe and my throat is sore. I blame it on the unusually cold weather, the hail, the heavy rains, and the strong winds.

It’s March! It’s March!

And I’m super excited and more than a little overwhelmed. There are so many things planned for March. Weddings, memorials, birthdays. Just to name a few. It’s going to be a whirlwind of events the next few weeks.

Plus…. Now that it’s March, is it still too early to pack for my first week of April vacation? Or am I still too overly excited? I can’t help it though! I feel that it’s been awhile since I’ve taken an entire week off to go on vacation. Lately, getaways are just a few days here and there.

I’m ready for spring to arrive and for it to be at least several degrees warmer. In the mean time, because I know we all need it to chase away the cold, let’s talk about this Thai Shrimp Tom Yum Ramen.

Happy Sunday!

I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend so far and that wherever you are, you’re staying warm and cozy. It’s been days of cold weather here, and even though we’re just a few weeks away from spring, it definitely does not feel like it. I’ve been bundled up in layers of blankets, knee high boots socks, and blanket scarves. And I’m soooo glad that I didn’t have work this weekend, that way I didn’t have to leave the house.
