Typing The Shackleton Project’s answers up


I’m not the typical girl who dreamed of their wedding since they were 5 or what have you. I actually NEVER really thought about it at all, and now, I have no idea where to really start. I am enjoying the excitement and we are talking plans etc. but I’m excited to share our (my) journey of being a bride with all of you!

Went to Jeff’s hockey game last night to hang out with our other friends’ girlfriend Kerri! My fiance scored a goal! However, we spent most of the time looking through a bride magazine!! haha, I also got to show our/ his hockey friends like Tuddy, Hanz, Nick, and Kevin the ring! They totally read the blog so Hi Guys! 

( In case you may be confused- these are my meals from yesterday, and yesterdays’ meals were from the day before yesterday… )

Basically, I just flattened out three breasts after trimming all the little fat parts. I took off my ring to do this because engagement ring + chicken fat= Gross.

Then I sprinkled the pan with a little oil, whole grain flour, pepper, capers- I laid each piece of chicken on top and sprinkled the top side with the same things. Let them cook on medium for about 7 minutes on each side ( internal temp. 165* F )

Dinner looks good and I love how low-cal it is. I’m trying to make my dinners lighter and get more during the day.

I am so excited about this new Trader Joe’s yogurt it’s ridiculous. I hope they have it at mine! The other one was not very good for a greek yogurt.

Thanks for the tip on the Greek Yogurt! That looks yummy! So do all the treats 🙂

My husband and I were engaged for 3 years before we got married! I hadn’t really always dreamed of the “perfect wedding” either, but I really got into planning ours. It was a blast! Can’t wait to hear about all the things you decide to do!
