    Love your lunch plate! I'm the same way. I can't eat a plain meal without variety! I need something to dip into and I need my soft and crunchy foods!

    I LOVE parenthood too and I'm sad that the next episode is the season finale! I also have to have variety in my meals–I rarely eat from just one food group during a meal! Have a great weeekend!

    Love that shirt, I always see polka dots done in neutrals but I like the bright colors of this one. Oh and I am addicted to Parenthood now! Even though I have to wait an extra week for it to come out where I am, I never miss it!
