I saw the perfect fabric for my skirt--green sequins! It reminded me of some running skirts I've seen on other blogs. And I picked out some white lettering for my shirt. I let the boys pick out some craft stuff to do this week, because they are off of school for an entire week for winter break.
I worked all afternoon on the skirts (yes, plural--I got enough fabric to make one for Jessica, too) and my shirt. I'm not thrilled with the shirt, but I love the skirt!

I had to hurry up and come up with something to cook for dinner, and what I threw together ended up tasting sooo good. When I'm stuck for dinner sometimes, I have a go-to dinner method that never fails:
Heat some oil in a skillet, and add about 6 cloves of garlic, sliced paper thin.
Cook on medium-low for a few minutes until garlic is transparent or light golden, being careful not to burn it.
Add a vegetable (in this case, shredded Brussels sprouts).
Add a protein (optional--today was chicken).
Add a (cooked) grain (whole wheat spaghetti).
Add a cheese (feta).
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Stir it all up and serve.
Another favorite is spinach, quinoa, and feta; and yet another is asparagus, pasta, and parmesan. The garlic and oil is what makes this so good!
