You know how you have a favorite Chinese takeout place close by? And you know how you probably tried about 36 different ones before you finally found *the one*..you know what I’m talking about. Finding the best chinese food can be hard work! ;) Well that’s what we went through in Maine before we found our favorite.

I’ve mentioned before that my husband isn’t the biggest chinese food fan, but when we found a place that he actually liked, I was able to convince him to get it a few times.

Then we had to move completely across the country, and into a place that is three times as populated as Maine was, so the amount of chinese takeout has basically tripled. And now our search has started all over again…tough, huh?

Well, for now, I try to make it at home sometimes. It’s tasty, probably better for us, (definitely), but I’m usually not looking to eat healthy when I order chinese takeout anyways..bring on the fried rice and all that thick, perfect sauce! This General Tso’s Chicken is easy and super good! If you’re not a fan of thighs, toss some cooked chicken breasts up in the sauce, because for real..the sauce MAKES it!

Grapefruit-Champagne Fruit Dip

A pop of Champagne and a little tangy Grapefruit Juice give this White Chocolate Fruit Dip a little extra tang!

Have you heard of JustFab? I’ve mentioned it once before, but feel the need to talk about it again because I am just so in love with it. They’ve recently launched a Fabletics line, which I believe was designed by Kate Hudson, and I love it. I ordered a pair of pants last night, they look so comfy, I can’t wait to get them!

They also have a fabkids line that I just adore! I ordered some things for my kids last night as well. The items are so unique and adorable, and when you sign up and place your first order, the entire outfit is only $15! I’m not being paid to say any of this guys, I just truly love all their options on all their lines, and the prices are beyond amazing. I can see my shoe collection growing mighty large this Summer. I want ALL THE WEDGES! And the bags…oh the colors.

I’ve been trying not to do to much shopping lately, but it’s not really working out. My husband gets one Friday off every month, and today happens to be the day, so I’ve got a full morning of shopping planned, all alooooone. *que confetti!* Sometimes it’s just so nice to run errands by myself..I don’t feel rushed or have to worry about my kids. It’s relaxing and enjoyable.

I can’t believe Easter is already this weekend. I feel like it kind of snuck up on me this year. At the beginning of April, I was all, Well it’s at the end of the month this year, and since it was the first week of April last year, I have more than enough time to do everything! Umm about that.

I still haven’t decorated eggs with my kids. I feel like crap about that. I mean, once you have kids, isn’t half the fun of all these holidays about crafts, and making memories, yaata yaata? I just kept thinking I’d have more time. As it is, part of the errands I’m running today are to find things to fill their baskets with, that isn’t completely candy. On top of that, I don’t even have any kind of Easter dinner planned yet, the most we’ve talked about it was when I asked my husband what kind of CAKE he wanted that day. Priorities I tell yah.

Well there’s always next year. I’ll decorate and do all the things with them next year. I kind of think my one year old is still to little for egg decorating anyway, though I’m sure there’s about a million and one finger paint crafts I could have done with him. I hate Pinterest…all you supermoms rock. Go you.

Moving on to this delectable Grapefruit-Champagne Fruit Dip..I don’t even know what to call it. It is sweet perfection. Melted white chocolate, with freshly squeezed grapefruit juice, and a pop of bubbly! It’s such a fantastic dip for fresh fruit, and it’s so easy to throw together. You can make it the day or two before you need it, and just let it sit in the fridge. The white chocolate gets slightly firm, but due to the champagne, it becomes easy to dip again within 20-30 minutes at room temp.
