Link Love #68

It’s strange to me to think that last week was 2014. Even more strange that it’s 2015.. I’m still trying to figure out where the year went! Anywho, I went into yesterday being super pumped that I was going to get up for my 6:30 a.m. shift at the store, work 8 hours, and then hit the gym to get in my 30 minutes. I have to tell you, by the time the end of my shift rolled around and I still had more to do, I decided the gym wasn’t happening. That said, there was a lot of lifting boxes and fast-paced moving at work, so I’m going to count that!

I also made a one-pot paprika chicken for dinner that came out really well! It didn’t look as pretty as the pictures from the recipe and it wasn’t anything that was out-of-this-world crazy or fancy, but it was just darn tasty. I did change it up a little by roasting some potatoes on the side instead of adding them into the pot.. crispy is always better, am I right? Welp, onto Tuesday.. 🙂

Don’t forget to enter my Swanson Vitamins giveaway!

This week is crazy nuts! I feel like I’ve been saying that a lot these days but damn if it’s not true. Busy is good though and it definitely makes me appreciate my weekends even more. Because I had my Recipe Redux post on Tuesday, I wanted to make sure I got in a good link love post this week. So it might be a couple days late, but still packed with goodies!
