What's cooking this week & a trip to Vero Beach

I'm back from an AMAZING Anniversary weekend getaway!  I honestly didn't think I'd be posting tonight, but I came up with a grocery list on the car ride home.  We were exhausted, and SO did not want to make any stops on the way back...but I'm glad we did because now we are set for the week and don't have to think about it!  Here is what I was able to come up with off of the top of my head...
Tonight:  Cheddarwurst and pierogies (hey, I said I was exhausted...taking the easy route)
Tuesday:  Taco Tuesday :)
Wednesday:  Pizza with turkey pepperoni 
Thursday:  Grilled Pineapple Chicken Sandwiches and sweet potato fries

Also, on the way home, I decided that I wanted to participate in the 7-Day Green Smoothie Challenge!!!  This should help make up for all of the not-so-healthy, quick meals I've been making lately!  I'm excited about this...expect to hear about how it goes soon!

Sooooo....back to our fabulous weekend!  We went to Vero Beach, and stayed at the Caribbean Court Boutique Hotel....gorgeous!  It was so quaint, beautiful, and right on the beach.  It reminded us a little bit of our honeymoon in Antigua (obviously on a much smaller scale)!  The weather was a little iffy on Saturday, but thankfully the rain held out and we were able to fit in plenty of beach and pool time!  We even managed to go back to the beach this morning for a few hours before checking out and heading to the McKee Botanical Gardens.  This weekend was the perfect combination of relaxation, in a beautiful setting, with lots of delicious food....what more can you ask for.  It was such a wonderful way to celebrate our first wedding Anniversary!  Here are some pics from our lovely getaway...
I hope you all have a great week!
