Recent Dinners...

So as requested here are two dinners I've made so far this week. Both were a hit! The first is homemade chicken noodle soup. The other is steak rollups. I'm not joking when I say this is my favorite way to eat steak. It's AMAZING!

I hope you like them too. Let me know what you think if you try any!!




HOMEMADE CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 4 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can vegetable broth
  • 1/2 pound chopped cooked chicken breast
  • 1 1/2 cups egg noodles
  • 1 cup sliced carrots
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste 
  •      
         In a large pot over medium heat, melt butter. Cook onion and celery in butter until just tender, 5 minutes. Pour in chicken and vegetable broths and stir in chicken, noodles, carrots, basil, oregano, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes before serving. 





    STEAK ROLL UPS

    • 2 Tablespoons Honey
    • 2 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
    • 3/4 Cup Veg Oil
    • 1/2 Cup Soy Sauce
    • Dash Dry Mustard
    • 1 teaspoon Ginger
    • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
    • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder

    Take your flank steak and cut it into 1/2 inch strips. Roll them up and put a toothpick through to hold them together. Once they are all rolled up place them in a dish, take marinade and dump it over steak rolls. I typically will do it the morning of or overnight to really let them soak. I flip them over after half way through the day so both sides soak nice and good. Lastly throw them on the grill and cook to how you like your steak prepared! Enjoy!
    ( I did a 2lb flank steak with this )



    Hope you enjoy these recipes!! I'll be sure to share more soon.

    The BEST maternity/postpartum jeans...

    I shared on my  Instagram stories the other day about The best maternity and postpartum jeans. You guys loved them and have had so many share how great they were and would have never tried them! I wanted to add them here for all those who keep asking to relink them. So now they are all in one spot!! I had a pair and still love to wear them now at 7 weeks postpartum. They have a side panel instead of that huge belly band. I personally didn't love the belly band. It always bunched up and you could see it under my shirts so I ended up always rolling them over. These jeans are perfect for after baby then too since you don't have to roll over any band and they look just like regular jeans! Below I'm linking some that I found and loved. Seriously if you are pregnant or postpartum you NEED these jeans. Seriously so so comfy and the perfect to transition slowly back into regular jeans!


    THESE dark ripped skinnies


    HERE Dark Skinnie


    THESE ripped faded skinnies



    THESE skinnie grey ON SALE FOR $19.00


    THESE  Jessica Simpson Dark Skinnies are what I wear and LOVE.

    THESE Jessica Simpons Ripped medium color skinnies



    THESE Jessica Simpson light color skinnies



    THESE ripped skinnies


    THESE ARE THE BEST regular jeggings for after baby. So comfy, hi-rise which hides all the mom fluff and so soft and stretchy!!



    Hope you love these jeans. This is the one area I spent money for maternity wear.  I promise the side panel is life!!!! Plus you will get so much use during and after your baby arrives!

    Hugs,
    Allie

    Finishing your dining space....


    I realized something as I finished my dining space that totally "completed" the look. The one thing most people overlook is a RUG.

      Check out the before and after of just adding a simple rug to the space. It feels way more cozy and inviting doesn't it 💗

    This Rug came from Rugs USA. I love the incredible deals and savings I can get when shopping their online rugs.
    The rug I got to complete this space is the Jute Braided Rug. It has a rustic farmhouse feel to it and just added the final touches to this nook.

    So excited to show you guys our kitchen reno next. The dining space will be pretty similar with a couple updates so Ill make sure to pop back here to share some before and afters once it is complete!!!

    Our Farmhouse Bathroom details...



    I get questions multiple times a day about our bathroom. Our bathroom is easily my favorite room in our house.  Probably because it was the only one we totally renoed. The space before was so cramped, awkward and was a one sink vanity.

    I knew when redoing this space I wanted a double sink and that was super important to me because we only have one bathroom in our farmhouse. Our new layout created so much more space and made the space appear and feel so much roomier. 

    Details of our space:

    I always get questions about it. What color did I paint it, where did you get it etc. When I saw this vanity I knew it was it and the price was amazing. Our room was very neutral which was my goal and originally wanted a white or grey vanity. After finding this I knew it was the one. Such a soft vintage blue that was so neutral but just enough color to make the room pop. The vanity came with silver knobs And cut out holes for the sink. I knew I wanted more of a farmhouse feel so my handy hubby added the ones that sit on top by cutting a little of the marble so they fit right in the other hole. I'm obsessed with how it turned out. We spray painted oil rubbed bronze on the knobs and it looked perfect.

    Farmhouse Drop in Sinks:
    These totally helped make our vanity feel more farmhouse and it was one of my must haves in our bathroom.

    The Floors:
    I wanted the plain little hexagons but no store around us had any. I'm SO glad we decided to go with this pattern instead. I ADORE it and plan to use it again someday!!!

    The shower curtain:
    I get asked like 272618 times a day (not exaggerating 😝) where is it from... It's one of my favorite stores world market. It actually wasn't what I had in mind at all. I looked for something white with lace or ruffle and just couldn't find the perfect one. Then I walked past this and knew. It had that blue from the vanity in it and I love everything floral. I feel this piece really took our room and completely finished it off!!! Im sad to say but they don't sell it anymore. I'll be hoarding mine forever now 😭

    The Mirrors
    The mirrors are from World Market (along with basically everything in this bathroom lol). I was actually looking for circle mirrors when I walked passed these and knew these were it. I prayed they would fit our space and when I brought them home they seriously fit like a glove. I knew they were meant to be ours!!

    The Rugs:
    Loved how simple these were and the fact that they were round and fit perfect in front of each mirror.

    The Vanity Lights:
    These were one of the first things I bought. I loved how they had a farmhouse feel and knew I needed them. When I got them home I realized the bulbs in them were VERY orange. I think it was for the antique feel. But if your a girl you know you never want to have orange lighting when getting ready LOL. I went and got some longer bulbs that were White and it was way better!

    Towel Hooks:
    Another one of my first purchases. I knew I wanted some wood and rustic feel to bring in some texture and farmhouse feel. These turned out to be perfect in the space!

    Laundry Basket:
    I love having this rolling basket in this space. Its perfect to toss dirty towels and our clothes at the end of the day. Each day Rosie rolls it over to the laundry room and we empty it and bring it back!

    Chalk Board:
    I still haven't even wrote on it yet because I haven't figured out what to put LOL.

    Flower Jar Vases:
    When I saw these I knew it would be perfect right on the back of the toilet!

    Blue Clock:
    I grabbed this knowing it matched the vanity and hoping I could find a place for it. I tend to do that a lot. Just find things and wing it. I think that is just my style.. winging it LOL.

    I hope you all love our bathroom. This truly was such a fun project for josh and I and its something Im proud of!!!
