Easy Date Night

Even though it's been a whopping 11 weeks since we had Madison, I still can't shake off the constant fatigue{especially at night}! I feel like I do pretty well during the day but at night I just turn into an old lady and have to be tucked in by ten:D! I'm crossing my fingers that in a months time Madison will be able to sleep six hours with ease. In the meantime Kyle & I have been making the best of our current situation by having date nights at home. On New Years Eve, we decided to celebrate the close of 2015 with a romantic table for two, some cute props and an effortless protein packed meal.

I typically like to reserve my Lean Cuisine® MARKETPLACE meals for days when life gets too busy or chaotic & I don't have enough time to whip something up for myself{aka lunch time} but after running errands all day I was craving a filling, quick & balanced meal. Thankfully my cute date indulged me:)!
So, Kyle opted for the Lean Cuisine® MARKETPLACE Cheese & Bean Enchilada Verde meal while I had the Lean Cuisine® MARKETPLACE Vermont White Cheddar Mac & Cheese{so yummy}. What I like about these meals (and Lean Cuisine in general) is that they don't compromise on flavor or ingredients{offering organic & gluten-free options}. So, I always feel like I'm eating a better for you meal that is both comforting and delicious.
We paired our meals with a simple mixed berry salad, grapes and sparkling apple cider.
I also ordered fifty of our favorite pictures from 2015 & made a table runner with them. I forgot how much I enjoyed having photos printed! It was so fun to look back on the year and remember all the great moments we had together.
 And since it was New Year's Eve we also had an assortment of silly props throughout the table. It was such a fun night! Definitely one to remember! 
How did you spend your New Years?
 I just wanted to share that the Lean Cuisine® Marketplace meals are currently only $2 & starting on 1/3 Target will be featuring a coupon for $1 off of five! So now is the time to stock up:)! Which Lean Cuisine® meal are you excited to try?
