My PR strategies professor brought us “mandatory” Valentine’s Day cupcakes! Is that cute or what?

Galentine’s date with my boo, Terra!

Wise words from my business law professor: “Happy Valentine’s Day! If you don’t have a Valentine… I’m sorry. Go get one.”

Chicken Salad Prep – Feb 11

No heat chicken salad lunches for the week! I don’t have a microwave in my office so these are awesome.

Bottom – chicken and avocado salad with lime and cilantro from Kalyn’s Kitchen

I added/left out some ingredients from these recipes so my meals aren’t exactly similar, but thanks Damn Delicious and Kalyn’s Kitchen for getting me started!
