Tuesday Talent Show #98

Phew, anyone else waiting for the day they can catch their breath!?! lol

Sorry last week’s Tuesday Talent Show didn’t go up. I just needed a week to unplug a bit focus on my cute kiddos and my hunk of a husband! :) It has been such a nice week. Don’t worry though! I’m back in full swing this week!

For those that follow me on INSTAGRAM (nikki_chefintraining), you may have seen these pics already, but if not- here is a look at what I have been up to the last week and a half :)

My husband and I went on our first date without kids in MONTHS… I forget how easy dinner is without two kids screaming, fighting, or throwing food lol!


I hung out with my cute sisters-in-law (including cute Sarah over at High Heels and Grills (are husbands are brothers) and finally met her darling baby…


I hung out with my Blog BBF Alyssa from The Recipe Critic and made some fun backgrounds for blog pictures and also got some manicures and pedicures (my first time ever! What on earth took me so long?!)…



Took my kiddos fall clothes shopping (my absolute favorite season of clothing)


Organized ALL my food props…. What a task that was! lol!


and just enjoyed my cute family :)


I feel so much more recharged and ready to take on this week now and tackling some new and exciting recipes for all of you :)

    Manicures and pedicure days are the best with girlfriends!! I just got a manicure with my sister over the weekend. I feel spoiled every time I get one (which isn't often!). Date nights are treasured and I'm so happy you got to enjoy a special night with your husband. You two are so cute together Nikki!

    Thank you for hosting. And don't ever apologize for taking a break, girl! xo
