Good morning! Happy Valentine’s Day! 🙂

It’s time for another edition of Monday In Meals where I share what I ate throughout the day. Yesterday was kind of an interesting day of eating because we had quite a few leftovers/foods on their last legs that needed to be used up (roasted sweet potatoes, kale, Bang Bang Buffalo Cauliflower, guacamole, grape tomatoes). I absolutely hate seeing food go to waste, so I did my best to incorporate what we had on-hand into yesterday’s meals, so it was kind of like how we eat at the end of the week versus the beginning of the week. Anyway, here’s my Monday In Meals with a “before” and “after” from Qman’s bedroom revamp!


Quinn’s Bedroom Revamp

Ok, so Quinn’s bedroom was a work in progress since we moved into our new house 1.5 years ago. We set it up with all of the essentials… his bed, dresser, a shelf, but then… we never did anything else. In August, I actually snapped the photos below with the intention of them being “before” photos because we were finally going to decorate. Sadly, nothing happen for the next, oooh, 5 months. Whomp whomp.

Question of the Day

Do you have anything special planned for Valentine’s Day?

P.S. Local readers: If you’re looking for something to do with your kids next week, check out the School Break Play Week over at the Derby Street Shoppes. There’s even some activities for kids as young as 3 years old!



  1. mm that coffee and cookie look so good! Did Q make those cookie? haha. You did his room all in one weekend!? amazing ! it looks great.
    No plans here for V-day, but my dog’s nickname is V (for Vaquita) so I will probably pretend it is V-day for Vaquita-day and give her lots of pup-lovin, lol!!

  2. I was thinking the makeover would be a toddler room. I am still trying to figure out how that will look for my daughter once she moves into a toddler bed. I understand you have to anchor dressers, really aggressively toddler proof, etc.

  3. The room looks so awesome! I love the couch but when I clicked your link it just brought me to the home page of Jordan Furniture–not a specific model. Do you know the name of the couch? Thanks!

  4. We have the same goat hamper in our nursery! 🙂 so nice that Quinn has such a big room- ours barely holds a changing table, chair and the crib!

    We got a sitter for a Saturday night for the first time everrrrrr! Trying to decide where to go eat in Boston! Suggestions for fairly clean eating out but romantic??

  5. Hey Tina! I love your meal posts, they always give me ideas! Also I was wondering when do u plan on switching Quinn to a toddler bed. Im having a hard time deciding whe. Is the right time. I’m nervous about it!!

  6. my 2-year old is in a “big girl” bed since she could catapult out of the crib. You’re lucky for continued containment. She sleeps in the pull out trundle, which helps.

  7. You really have done an excellent revamp of the room! I really love those prints too, I might try to get crafty and do something similar with my die cut machine! I love the clean feel of the room design 🙂

  8. My son would love this dinosaur theme! This makes me want to get out my craft cutter machine and get busy revamping my kids rooms too! The before and after picture difference is amazing!

  9. What a difference! It looks so warm and cozy. I can’t believe you’ve bee in the house that long already. I feel like it was just the other day you were telling us you were moving in.
