After work today I hopped in my car and swung by JoAnn’s to pick up some crafting gear for a few projects I plan to work on this weekend.
According to JoAnn’s, the 4th of July is nearly here! Get ready to bust out your BBQs and American flags!
Fortunately I was alone, so I had all the time in the world to browse around and took my sweet time. I feel like Ryan is usually with me when I go to JoAnn’s since we’ll often run all of our errands together on the weekend. Even if he tells me to take my time, his presence always makes me feel a little rushed at the craft store because it isn’t exactly his favorite place in the world. I can’t for the life of me imagine why. JoAnn’s has stickers, cardstock, paint, fake flowers, wall décor… What more could you want!?
It’s gonna be hard to hold off on my crafting projects until the weekend now that I have everything in my hands. I love crafting and am feelin’ the itch!
Once my craft shopping concluded, I headed home and got to work on dinner since Ryan had to work late.
I cooked up a batch of whole wheat rotini pasta before tossing it in a mixture of marinara sauce and Italian breadcrumbs. I then added some turkey meatballs that I defrosted in the microwave to the mix before pouring the pasta into a baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. After topping it with shredded cheese, I broiled it in the oven until the cheese melted.
Then it was time to dig in!
It was so good that I went back for thirds! I am now left with a bulging pasta belly and that lethargic feeling, but I feel full and happy.
Ryan and I are now off to take Sadie on her evening walk. The heat of the day has burned off a bit, so nice walk in the warm evening air sounds perfect right about now.
Enjoy your night!
