sunday love by megan

Happy Sunday!

How are y’all? Today has been really great! I love my Sundays so much! I went to church and then to Wal-Mart with my mom and my sister and found these…


I love markers, crayons, glitter, coloring books…everything to that nature. I am going to teach pre-k, afterall! Well, that’s the plan, anyway. I am a Crayola girl, but these RoseArt glitter markers were just too tempting. I tried them…I approve!

Last night sushi was really fun and really delicious and I practically had to be rolled out of Sake. I like to eat sushi, what can I say? There were 4 of us at dinner and we ordered lots of rolls like Spider Web (my favorite), Rock n Roll, Crawfish Roll, Portobello Tempura Roll (my first time trying…so good!), Tuna roll, Rainbow roll…and some more. They were all very yummy…Sake never disappoints. The only picture I managed to take was this one…on our walk down Magazine Street to our car.

I am very excited for dinner tonight…we are doing a Giada recipe. This one to be exact. We are serving it with polenta and a mixed greens salad loaded with tomatoes, almonds, and raisins. Oh, and sangria with apples and oranges, of course πŸ™‚ But, I must say that I am most excited about cupcakes for dessert from The Kupcake Factory.

We ordered 1/2 a dozen cupcakes. A mix of wedding cake, birthday cake, and red velvet I believe. I am so excited! Pictures tomorrow, for sure.

Sundays have always been a family day for us…and I wouldn’t choose to have it any other way. Sundays are such a blessing. Do y’all have any Sunday traditions?

Okay, I am off to help cut the fruit for the Sangria. Enjoy the evening!


sushi saturday by megan

Hey y’all! I hope Saturday has been fun for everyone. Oh, I just love the weekend πŸ™‚ Don’t y’all?

I’ve been watching the Healthy Living Summit LIVE…here. It’s been sooo informative and I wish I was in Boston right now! But, I am not and that’s okay! Because, tonight is sushi and I could not be more content. My parents, me, and a family friend whom I have not seen in a while are going to sushi at Sake Cafe. I love Sake…the one Uptown to be exact. There are many Sake locations all over the New Orleans/Metro area, but the one Uptown on Magazine Street is definitely the one I prefer. The sushi rolls are always presented so beautifully and everything is always fresh and bursting with flavor. And, the rolls are always large and hold their shape well. A pet peeve of mine is when a sushi roll falls apart, in between chopsticks, on the way to your mouth! Not necessary or fun!

So, last night my Uncle’s birthday party was a lot of fun, the Saints won (woohoo!) their first pre-season game, and we all enjoyed a lot of this…

I hope your weekend is going beautifully so far…full of cake and sushi!
