Broccoli Quinoa Slaw

Broccoli Quinoa Slaw

All genius ideas are born in the spur of the moment. For us they usually start out small and become bigger than originally planned. Last week while Briana was on vacation with her grandma I came up with a genius idea to surprise her with a brand new grown up bedroom set. Sounds simple enough, no biggie, all we have to do is get the old furniture out, replace it with new and we’ll be done. Somehow we found ourselves picking out new wall paint, installing recess lights , changing all the décor and getting rid of old toys that our 7 year old has been hoarding for years. The slight upgrade turned into a week long project that we worked on after long days at work. Anxiously awaiting her return we imagined what her reaction would be like. I worried whether she would love it, like it or completely freak out.
