MIMM #82 Holiday Party + P.F. Changs Yum!




Had a wonderful weekend, wishing all of you did too! I have to say one thing, I am exhausted as ever. Send lots of coffee my way pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Mondays do always seem to be the hardest days for me in the “energy” department, cheers to obsessive amounts of coffee to fix that today!

Enjoy the day, and enjoy my MIMM highlights….

 Friday night, Mike and I had a dinner date night in. We made a yummy shrimp stir fry, was good and simple to make!

I used this stir fry sauce, I was trying to find a lower sodium one, but our store did not have any!




Saturday I went and got my nails done, which was way over due, and needed. I went with a neutral, sparkles too of course.

We had  Mike’s work party Saturday night,  was a little hard getting ready with a very cranky little man…

But eventually I pulled myself together real quick, and just in time because the sitter came two minutes after that!

I went with a classic black dress, can never go wrong with that  😉

We had a very good time at the party, lots of great food, and everyone is just so nice at the firm.

I enjoyed some wine, and we chatted all night long with great people. Mike really is blessed to work at such a great place, I am happy he got the job there 2 years ago.

Rocco was in bed already when we got home, we didn’t stay up too late ourselves. I am so glad we have a sitter now when we want to do a date night, or have something going on that we have to attend.

Sunday I went out with my girlfriends for lunch at P.F.Changs, missed it there!

I didn’t know what to wear, but obviously no sweats, haha. I love to dress up, and will take any chance to get all dressed up when I have the opportunity!  Ever since having Rocco, I like to be comfy most days, which means sweats!

I love colorful blazers, they just can make a simple outfit really rock, and jewelry can too.

And I am loving these boots I got  a while ago, they are perfect for a classic black boot!

Lunch was delicious, as always at P.F. Changs!

I ordered a cup of hot and sour soup to start, and tried their seasonal salad….

Fresh chopped kale, endive, radicchio, crisp apples, grapes, celery, grape tomatoes and candied walnuts tossed in a light miso-lime vinaigrette. The salad was amazing, I need to go back there asap , Mike and I are thinking of going this weekend. The seasonal menu has some great stuff on it!

    I haven’t been to PF Changs in months, but I usually have a really great experience there every time I go. I appreciate when restaurants have a seasonal menu. Love the nails! I’ve never thought to put sparkles on neutral.

    Love the pics of little man at the end, especially the one where he’s sleeping on Mike :) Too sweet! I had no idea PF Changs had a seasonal menu…it’s been awhile since I’ve been there apparently ha. That salad looks awesome, though…definitely suggesting that for a future date night! You looked gorgeous getting all dressed up this weekend hun :) Have a great Monday!

    Ahhhh, I just can’t get over the pics of your little mini Mike! 😉 Love those little footies! Your nails look gorgeous…I’m long overdue for a manicure and now I’m thinking a nude color would be perfect…with glitter OF COURSE!

    Hope you have a fantastic week! Love you!

    Sexy momma, you look great in that black dress!

    I love, love, love that cross necklace you are wearing w/the pink blazer, where did you get them both?

    My husband went to the Patriots game Sat night so I went out with some girlfriends before we headed to our friends house to watch the game… I love seeing my friends, but home at 12:30am…..Cannot.Hang.Anymore!!!!

      Love ya Tara, thank you!

      I actually got it at forever 21 a year and a half ago, but I am sure they have something similar again now!

      Oh, that is a late night! Girl, I am in bed so early these days because of little man!

      Happy week to you!

    I love your black dress beautiful!! Sounds like such a nice weekend with going out and good food!
    The nails are so pretty too. Gotta love the sparkles!

  6. says

    I love your nails and your dress!!! Sounds like a great weekend! I just painted my nails a pale pink because i was filming yoga videos. So weird to have nails that look so simple but I actually like how clean it looks :) Happy Monday!

  7. says

    FACT: I am jealous of your nails.
    FACT: I may or may not copy you once I decide to stop being stingy with money and go get a mani.
    FACT: I wish we could grab dinner at PF Changs so I could meet the fabulous Katie in person!
    FACT: It’s really creepy I just put that in third person?
    FACT: Cutest kid, ever.

    Happy Monday girl! :)

    Goodness, Rocco looks like a big boy already in some of the pictures. Especially the one below the salad picture [now how’s that for a description of which one I mean ;)?!]. He’s growing so fast! Oh, and in case you ever need a new babysitter I’d happily take the job – can you tell I wish I’d had younger siblings?
    Awesome pictures of you, too! Mike’s a lucky husband to have a wife beautiful inside and out :). Happy Monday!

    Glad you had a fun weekend. Glad you enjoyed Mike’s work party, Rocco is precious, great you have a babysitter so you can get out. Counting the hours til Conor will be home. Wish you guys were here and we could all hang out.
