All things pink - New Spring Arrivals

 Once we hit January and the dead of winter, I start to dream of spring - never fails! It's crazy to think a month ago, I was full-on winter cozy Christmas mode. Now I'm like bring on the sunshine and warm weather! Last year, we took a warm weather trip to Florida last February, and goodness was it good for the soul! We were talking about how good it was for us and wanted to do it again this year. So with that being said, I've been doing LOTS of searching for all the best new spring arrivals. From swimsuits to all the bright happy colors, sandals to sundresses. And it's without a doubt that the color I hunt down the most is my favorite of all...PINK! The good news is that if pink isn't your favorite, most of these pieces come in other color choices.

Did y'all notice that CUTE pink midi length t-shirt dress above? Well I'm so excited to see that they've just brought back this one for another year. Last year, I got the same one in both a camo and stripe print. They quickly became two of my go-to dresses for spring and summer. Super cute on, great fit, and the perfect throw-on-and-go, doesn't require much styling kinda dress :) I styled both colors below:

Valentine Outfits for Women & Girls

 In all honesty, I used to not be a huge fan of Valentine's Day. It wasn't until my friend Jaclyn and sister Hannah gave me a Valentine's Day themed baby shower when i was pregnant with Madeline that it took on a whole new meaning for me. Hearts and all the sweet pink things make me think of my Madeline. And every since becoming her mama, she's always been my little Valentine :)

I LOVE a sweet heart print and wearing hearts + decorating for the holiday makes me happy. I've also found that getting into all the fun Valentine things has helped me shake off the Christmas blues. Today I've rounded up some adorable heart sweaters for women, Valentine pieces for girls and and twinning options for mommy and me:

Workout Chic Finds

 Hi friends and happy Tuesday! I'm slowly working on getting back into a good routine. I feel like last week was a 2022 trial run haha and this week is officially a fresh start. Anyone else? One of those is getting back into a good workout routine. I'm notorious for setting this goal first part of the year but have difficulty keeping it up. Last year was my longest stretch with this goal yet! I worked out consistently up until about October and only because I was having some back issues. Oh and then, hello, holidays (bring on the candy, baking and all the sweets). I really do want to get back into a consistent routine. Last week I did workout fine out of the last seven days, hit my water drinking goals each day and have been getting back into healthy food choices. It honestly feels great and I believe only takes that first step of deciding you're going to jump into it. 

All of that being said, I decided to roundup some chic workout finds. I mean, if you're going to do it, why not look cute, right? Last year I discovered Old Navy's athletic leggings, and they quickly became my favorite ever! I used to love the Zella line at Nordstrom, but honestly Old Navy is even better and less expensive. Their leggings come in several length options (I always wear the petite lengths being 5'2). They have sports to mix and match with the colors and prints. I also have found some great workout tops to pair with them. Oh and huge bonus, they have some girls sizes to match! Madeline LOVES her workout sets and will wear them to jumprope (she's constantly trying to set new records for herself haha), play, etc. So, I've rounded up some workout inspo today to share with y'all today! See it all below:

Easy Crockpot Cubed Steak

 Hi friends and happy Thursday! I'm back with an easy dinner idea to share with y'all. Last year (it feels so weird saying that haha), I attempted to start a series (in my efforts to simplify life) of sharing easy crockpot dinners. It's such a relief to be able to throw something together in a crockpot and let it cook all day. And speaking of, this one will make your home smell AMAZING as it cooks all day. Anyways, I'm going to try sharing more of these in 2022. As I build up some recipe content to share, my plan is to share them every other Thursday. If you missed my first one, you can check out our sweet & sour meatballs here. Today I'm excited to share another go-to recipe in our rotation: easy crockpot cubed steak. It's so easy, and the simple ingredients will make your mouth water. It's definitely one of those you can throw together, let cook for the day and not worry about. I'll also be sharing the steps over on my IG in a reel, if y'all want to check that out :)

Easy Crockpot Cubed Steak - Something Delightful Blog #easymeals #crockpotmeals #familydinners

Here's what you'll need:
- 6 cubed steaks 
- half a teaspoon of pepper
- generous amount of garlic salt (or desired amount)
- 1 peeled onion sliced into rings
- could also add bell peppers and/or mushrooms would be great as well
- 1 can of cream of chicken soup
- 1 can of cream of celery soup
- half a can of water
- 1 packet of Lipton onion soup mix
- 1/4 a teaspoon of pepper for the soup mixture

Easy Crockpot Cubed Steak - Something Delightful Blog #easymeals #crockpotmeals #familydinners

Step One: Place three of the cubed steaks in the crockpot (you add it in layers)
Step two: Coat the steaks in garlic salt
Step Three: Sprinkle with pepper (I do half a tsp. each layer)
Step Four: Layer on sliced onions (and/or bell peppers, mushrooms, etc.)

*Then add your next layer of steaks and repeat above steps*

Step Five: In a small mixing bowl, combine both cream of chicken and cream of celery soups
Step Six: Add half a can of water
Step Seven: Sprinkle in 1/4 a teaspoon of pepper
Step Eight: Mix together and pour over steaks in crockpot

Step Nine: My favorite step, top with the Lipton Onion Soup Mix 

Once steps are completed, set your crockpot to low and cook for six hours. 

It really is so yummy and as I mentioned above, smells WONDERFUL! I like to serve it with mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli.
