You’re Basically Invited

A big thanks to Basic Invite for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own. 😀

It is officially spring season, and I could not be more excited! Warmer weather comes, flowers bloom, birds seem to chirp more, and for a lot of people, events and other happenings take place: Easter brunches/egg hunts, parties, showers, proms, and of course, graduations.

It is a wonderful time to enjoy great company, celebrate life events with loved ones, and be grateful for those people in your life.

With all of these events that take place in spring, you will need invitations to send out and thank you cards to give; and there is no better option for that than Basic Invite. 

At Basic Invite, you can find anything from invitations and thank you cards, to stationary, business cards, and even printables.

Easter is only a couple weeks away, and with that comes Easter egg hunts, family get-together, and Easter brunches. I think this Easter themed invite is super cute, and perfect for springtime.

I have always loved stationary. Growing up I have had my fair share of stationary with its colors and designs. I genuinely miss writing on stationary, and I’d like to write a letter or two to people again, like how everyone used to do. We should get back to that!

The stationary options that Basic Invite provides is to die for! You can choose from a myriad of colors, patterns/designs, and even choose a classier feel or professional look.

I love making “to-do” lists too. I have to write things like that down. I’d definitely write down my “to-do’s” on stationary that looks like this!

Graduation season is upon us soon, and that means a big life event! This will call for graduation invites and graduation thank you cards. 

I remember both my high school and college graduations and I can’t believe I will be out of high school 8 years this year, and 4 years out of college this year. I wish I had invitations and thank you cards like this for mine!

Basic Invite is very customizable: not only with what is on your invitations or thank you cards, but with the colors as well.

Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows their customers almost unlimited color options, and with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to any of their 180 different color options. So you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the smallest detail. This is what sets them apart from almost any other online stationery company!

This makes it nice to be able match up your exact school colors, but also to have the same colors for your thank you cards.

Even if you don’t need thank you cards for a graduation, Basic Invite still offers a variety of designs if you need them for anything else.

I came across this navy thank you card with some beautiful pink flowers on it and it immediately grabbed my attention. I love the color navy, but it’s the perfect background for a pop of color from the flowers. Who wouldn’t want to receive a thank you card that looks like this?

Along with your order, whether that is stationary, thank you cards, or invitations, Basic Invites provides you with envelopes, too.

You can also order your envelopes in any one of their color options.They are just as colorful with their envelopes as their invitations. You can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to their envelopes so that you make your invitation stand out even before it is opened. All of the envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed.How nice is that?

And if you want an extra sparkle or shimmer to your order, they also have an option for that. Foil holiday cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. You can choose flat or raised foil on all of the foil designs. It adds an extra touch of something special, and you have more than one color to choose from!

Quick Sunday (partial) Meal Prep

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope you had a great weekend despite the rain and dreary weather. It was more low key for me, but I was able to relax and get some things done as well.

Today I thought I would share with you a few things that I meal prepped yesterday. Normally, I am not a huge fan of meal prepping. I don’t like spending the whole afternoon cooking/baking and placing every meal in its own individual container. If you have an 8-5 job, then it may be handy for you, but it’s just too much for me.

Personally, I like to prep a few things for at least a few days of the week, just so it’s easier to grab. It’s quick, and it helps with your food choices when you have healthy options already made. I am in and out of the house during the week with the way my schedule is, so it’s nice to have certain veggies and other things ready.

I roasted cubed potatoes and brussel sprouts at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. I drizzled olive oil and put a little garlic salt and cracked pepper on both of them. I like roasted brussel sprouts better…and can eat them warm or add to a salad for a little crunch!

I also boiled some eggs for the week. Normally, I prefer just cooking them in the mornings, or making my egg muffins with veggies in them, but yesterday I just decided to boil some for a quick breakfast or snack. My dad likes to take these to work too, so they are ready for him too!

Easiest way to boil eggs? Once water boils, keep on med-high heat for 13-15 minutes. Drain them immediately and run COOL water on top of them. This will allow the shell to ease away from the egg some. Once cool, tap them all the way around, and peel! 🙂

Boiled eggs are also great to put on salads too!

Who loves guacamole?! I am in love with guacamole, and I was in the mood to whip up a quick version of it to have over the next day or so. (Next day really, because it turns QUICK!)

I took 2 large avocados, mashed them, and added part of this guacamole mix packet. I usually don’t feel the need to have the whole packet in there for the amount I normally make.

For dinner I decided to go ahead and dig into the guacamole! I made a spinach salad, topped with leftover sweet potato and a kale + mozerella chicken burger I found at Costco the other day. It hit the spot!

Even though I don’t do any kind of meal prep every Sunday, and definitely not as intense as a lot of people do, I like it because you can do as much, or as little, as you need and want to make things easy and convenient for you during your week. I don’t like having the same meals every single day for every single meal…I like variety!

Questions for you:

Do you prepare any food for part (or all) of your week?

If so, what do you usually prepare? Do you have a go-to?
