In the process of faking my love for the Seahawks, I accidentally DID fall in love with them. Or at least Marshawn Lynch. My sweet beast mode.

I don’t know how the NFL sleeps at night. Like, what are we teaching our youth?! That cheaters win?! I’m bitter & unfriendly.

I’m done trying with sports. They’re so exhausting. I even made chicken to celebrate the event. Chicken is a football/manly food, right?

Friday is my new favorite day of the week. I used to like Sundays & Mondays – don’t tease. Now Friday means the end of another work week. Well, it has always meant that, but I mean the REAL end. The end of this chapter is drawing near. Our wedding day will be here before we know it – THANK GOD!

Then, it’s time for something new. A fresh start in a fresh place with lots of fresh fish, coincidentally!

I really have to hone in my salmon skills down by then. I love Asian inspired anything, but particularly salmon. Soy sauce just helps to calm this flavorful fish down a bit.

It was baked to perfection, if I do say so myself & just melted in my mouth. Though, this is a tough recipe to mess up! I sent a picture to G & he was so impressed. Am I catch or AM I A CATCH?!
