So super funny, I started this list of things I secretly 'sometimes' want to do, and numero uno might be a little telling. How tricky our subconscious can be.

...I wanna pin pregnancy/baby stuff on Pinterest, but then everyone will think I'm pregnant.
...I want to eat pizza and french fries all day.
...I want to hide my computer and live technology free.
...I wish I could read for a living.
...I wish I could drink to excess without getting a hangover.
...I think about breaking up with my iPhone.
...I turn on Frozen when there's nothing else I want to watch.
...I half ass my workout just so that I keep myself on a schedule.
...I wish I never had to leave my house and could just paint and DIY all day er'day.
...I feel guilty parking in the 'Expectant Mothers' parking because I can still run four miles, but then I realize I only get to enjoy this for another few months. I just make sure there are several, so that if someone super pregnant needs a spot I'm not wasting it.

And all the time, I love dinners that can be repurposed for lack of a better term. Lately, Will has been on a vegetarian kick, and I'm not mad about it. It is much easier to maintain a healthy diet for CQB with him begging for more veggies, and it's making me branch out and find new recipes. Our newest favorite is a veggie bean bowl that I also used as filling for Poblano peppers the next night. Killing two birds with one stone is the best!

Can Black Beans || Can Kidney Beans || Can Pinto Beans
2 Fresh Tomato diced or a can of Fire Roasted
4 Servings Quinoa or Brown Rice, cooked
Frozen Spinach
2 Bell Peppers (mix up the colors)
1 Red Onion
Minced Garlic || EVOO
Taco Seasoning and/or Salt, Pepper, Cumin, Garlic to taste
Shredded cheese and Cilantro for topping
Optional: Lime, sour cream, refried beans, hot sauce, more veggies, lettuce to make it a salad.
Throw the veggies in with some EVOO and minced garlic to cook down for 3 minutes, then throw in the rest of ingredients and simmer for about 20 minutes. Serve topped with Cilantro, shredded cheese and any of your favorite toppings.

Day two, preheat oven to 375, slice lengthwise,and de-seed two Poblano Peppers. Then fill with leftover bean filling, and bake for 25 minutes. Add cheese, bake for another 10 minutes, add your favorite toppings and voila...easy peasy dinner.

Anyone have favorite vegetarian recipes? I need all the help I can get!

What a fun list. I loved the first one, hahaha. I just created a board for ONE DAY baby stuff so no one asks. Thank goodness for secret boards now, huh?

I'll put on a disney movie when there is nothing on, too. There is something comforting in Disney, right?

THose meals look amazing, friend!

You should try the Mexican quinoa dish I have on my blog--it's so yummy and not bad for you at all (and no meat!) :)

I turn on Pitch Perfect when nothing else is on! I felt guilty too about using the parking spots. Especially when my hubby was with me. But take advantage while you can!

I love Frozen and so does Lizzie. I wish I could read for a living as well and wish there was Pinterest when I was pregnant with my kids. I would love to eat pizza and French fries every day, as long as I didn't gain any weight. Plus I do love staying home, but wish someone would clean my house while we were all sleeping :)

HA! That first one! Hilarious! I remember when I first made my "For Someday Later" board on Pinterest thinking that people were going to judge me for pinning all the baby stuff when we were so vocal about not wanting to get pregnant at the time. I've had a couple of friends tease me about it, but that's about it. I'm glad I have the board full of pins though for whenever we do get to that point! :)
