Wifey Points and Charleys half birthday!!

[This was supposed to be posted yesterday, whoopsie!]

Yesterday was my sweet Charleys half birthday!

I can’t believe she is already 6 months old.

I seriously can’t believe I grew up without dogs.

I love her more than I ever thought I could, and I can’t imagine my life without her!

Thank God for pups.

We decided to take her to the dog park when Kyle got home from work

as a little birthday gift.

This is afterwards, which is why her face is so dirty.

There were SO many people/dogs there!

I’ve gotta start taking her more often,

She was the youngest by far and it was so funny to see how clumsy and slow

she was compared to the full grown dogs.

She had the time of her life and has been taking LOTS of naps today.

<3 <3 <3

So I mentioned “Wifey Points” in the title.

Well I found this “healthy” recipe on pinterest that I’ve been dying to make!

It’s from Skinnytaste.com and it’s called

Eggplant Rollatini

and it looks like this…YUM right?!

I decided to make zucchini fries for a side dish because we both

LOVE zucchini.

This recipe is from Pauledeen.com

I should’ve taken pictures while we were in the process of cooking,

but I didn’t.

But this is how MY eggplant rollatini turned out!

I may or may not have added A LOT of extra cheese…

And dinner is served…

I was nervous Kyle wasn’t going to like it because there’s no meat in it.

Just spinach and cheese!

Well he took his first bite and says “it’s pretty good!”

Which as we all know can mean a lot of things…like… 

“please never cook this again”, “am I going to have to eat all of this?”, “Lord help me”

or it may actually mean that it’s good!

Well lucky me, as he kept eating I kept hearing things like,

“Wow this is actually REALLY good!!”

So GO me!!

The one mistake we did make with the zucchini fries was cutting them too thick,

they were good but some weren’t quite as crispy!

So make sure you cut them nice and thin for more crispiness ;]

Let me know if you try out this recipe!

Who would’ve though that eggplant was so delicious?!


Have a great weekend ladies.

xoxo, Monica
