I’ll talk more about it tomorrow for Toddler Tuesday but can I just say, yay!

Marvelous was a fun at home date night the hubby and I had Friday night playing this game I found on Dating Diva’s

Just something new to do other than watch a movie or play board games 🙂

Marvelous was our afternoon at the park yesterday with friends 🙂

I’m very fearful for what the future has in store for us with our little daredevil…


Although I’m not surprised….

It was a nice Sunday outing that we’ll definitely be doing more of as the weather warms up!

That’s it for today.  Short and sweet since we are busy, busy as usual!

Hope you have a Marvelous Monday!

  1. We are totally on the same page today, with the kale salad! I’ll have to try your recipe!

  2. That mango avocado salsa sounds amazing! I am thinking that it would be fabulous on top of a veggie burger!! 🙂

  3. Oh my gosh, those recipes sound amazing! I love fish, but I’m so bad at cooking it without a grill (we don’t use ours in the winter)–it always ends up so freaking smelly!! Gotta work on that…

    And WOW, congrats on the potty training!! Can’t wait to hear more about it tomorrow. Please share your tips. 🙂

    So cute that you played that game with your hubby! I wonder if I could convince mine to do something like that, haha.

    Happy Monday!

      We don’t use our outdoor grill during the winter either so this grill pan was a score!
      My hubby and I are kind of game nerds. I think it’s because we’re both pretty competitive but this one was fun since there was no real winner or loser! Although I did get a nice foot and back massage out of it so that’s a win in my book!

  4. both of those meals look so amazing! my favorite fish to eat is probably ahi tuna….but salmon is a close second 🙂
    happy monday!

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      Yum, love Ahi Tuna! We haven’t had it in awhile so I might have to get some soon!

  5. I just made a massaged kale salad last night with dinner . . . it was delicious! I’ll post about it this week. I love the ingredients you included, especially the apple! The mahi mahi sounds delicious–I’m a big fan!!

  6. The recipes look delish! I’ve never tried kale salad before but it looks yummy! The mango avocado salsa sounds great too.
    As for fish, I like mahi mahi, salmon and tilapia.

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      I wasn’t a very big fan of kale salads before because it’s so bitter and tough but after it was massaged I loved it!

  7. Ooh, your kale salad looks wonderful! I love the Mahi Mahi, too!! One thing that is marvelous is that Keenan said, “I love you, Mommy” while giving me a kiss last night before he went to bed!

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      Awe, my heart just melted at that comment. So sweet that he said that to you 🙂

  8. Glad you had a marvelous weekend! <3

    My favorite fish is salmon, just had some! The mahi mahi looks amazing!!

    Happy week to you girl!

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      Thanks Katie! I’m a big salmon fan too! Actually had some last Friday and it was delicious!

  9. That Kale salad sounds great! I have seen recipes that tell you to massage the kale…have never done it. Is it supposed to release more flavor, or ? I guess I’ve always cooked it vs. eating it raw so maybe it isn’t necessary if cooking. Thanks!

  10. It’s great to hear how wonderful potty training has been going for you!!!! Good job Love Nugget 🙂
