This is my first bright color of the year! So in my world it is officially spring. Have you traded in your dark polish for a bright springy polish yet?

In my post yesterday I told you how nervous I was about highlighting my hair and as it turns out I have nothing to be nervous about because it didn't do anything! Yes, that's right my hair looks exactly the same, the dye didn't take to my hair at all! It was supposed to be for medium to dark brown hair too. Oh well, I'll probably make an appointment at my salon for highights in a few weeks but I want to wait a little bit since I just used color on my hair.

As you all know it's Monday so that means it is time for another edition of Meal Planning Monday. Here's what I'm making this week:
Monday: Carmelized Honey Dijon Chicken (carried over from last week because we went out to eat on Saturday)
Tuesday: Skinny Pasta Al Burro with Broiled Chicken (from Skinny Italian Cookbook)
Wednesday: Pan Seared Chicken with Shallots
Thursday: -eating out-
Friday: Pizza Night!
Saturday: Fried Panko Chicken with Lemon
Sunday: Let's Make a Baby Pasta

As some of you may notice a lot of these meals have been featured already in pervious MPM's because I have quite a collection of recipes in rotation at the moment. I have certainly diversified my recipe collection since I started MPM which was my main goal. If I find myself with a lot of repeats recipes, I may just start featuring the new recipe or dessert that I make that week instead of boring you with repeats. How does that sound? Do you have any other suggestions?


  1. I love the coral nails!

    Maybe a solon strength high light would work for you - that's all that works on my dark hair! :)

  2. I broke out the bright nail polish over the weekend too! :) Loving the color you picked!

  3. Very pretty nail polish! :) That's a bummer about your hair though, definitely go to a salon then!

  4. That color is really pretty! I've been wearing brights for about a month now, and I love the way it has brightened my mood.

    I love your MPM idea, I should start doing the same.

  5. That nail color is awesome. I have some, but haven't started wearing it yet. Sorry the color didn't work. It will all work out. Have a great day!

  6. That is the perfect shade on your skin tone-love! I broke out my pastels last week, they're definitely a welcome change :)

  7. LOVE that color polish!!! <3

  8. love the color - brights all the way! (Your ring is beautiful by the way!)

  9. Love the color!

    Since you love chicken what about chicken quesadillas with avocado? Yummy!
