….I’m thankful for:

cute ballet flats that were 50% off at the Jcrew Outlet

perfect blue skies

date night at a mystery restaurant (!)

heartfelt emails from friends

coffee dates

running errands on foot

picking all the frosting off of the last tiramisu cupcake

the fact that winter is officially over

book club starting tomorrow

Hop on over to Tasty Kitchen for the recipe—it’s so simple and delicious that it’ll blow your mind!!

I will be making those chicken sandwiches on Monday night for dinner. I have made something similiar with Newman’s pineapple salsa and fresh pineapple but the sweetness of the bbq sauce sounds much better!

Really cute flats :D

And coffee dates are the best!

Tonya April 29, 2011 at 8:15 pm

I covet your shoes. Sorry, it’s true. Forgive me!
I just printed this recipe off TK’s site today, despite my husbands rolled eyes. He hates warm fruit. What? Crazy man. Needless to say, I try not to make things he doesn’t care for, but I just might have to make an exception since my kiddos would love it too. :)
Have a great weekend Jenna! I am jealous of your date night too. Does that make me a bad person?

I love many of those same things: finding a good deal, coffee dates with my husband, and the fact winter is over–although it is still pretty cold/cool in Alaska. :(

Megan@Dirty Dishes Daily April 29, 2011 at 8:38 pm

You’re totally speaking to my heart right now. I love, love, love J.Crew! Beautiful flats that you just scored!

The boyfriend just booked us tix for Napa (so excited!!), and I may just have to trick him into stopping at the J.Crew outlet while we’re there. :)

I was drooling over the BBQ chicken recipe as soon as I saw it on PW. Then when I clicked over and saw it was your recipe I was like “who else would come up with this perfect start to spring recipe?!”
