It’s a zoo in here!

It’s been a crazy weekend folks.

Happy Birthday America!

Red, white, and blue runs through my veins.

I’ve got a lot of pictures for you from the zoo, so please, enjoy them (:

Celebratory oats!


Well, Adam is here and he’s taking me to sushi as a farewell dinner before I go camping for a week. I will talk to y’all tomorrow about more fun things. I hope you enjoy the gallery of pictures!

Namaste ❤

P.S. If anyone wants to guest post, I’ll be gone for 7 days. So just shoot me an email with your post and I’ll get it up while I’m gone! (;

an exciting #wiaw (pb banana bread)

I have so much for today’s post. I hope you enjoy all of it. (A special thanks to those who responded to last night’s post including N and Allie!) I am going to try to be more open and real on here.

I realized I’ve been trying to fit this specific “food blog” type and, honestly, I’m not a food blog. I don’t really make recipes that often, and I don’t go through the motions. I am pretty much a “my life” blog. So if I have recipes (like today’s) that’s awesome. But unfortunately I won’t be providing them regularly. So just throwing all that out there. This blog is pretty much going to be my journal, my home, my thoughts, all the parts of my crazy brain. (;

NOW! Onto WIAW!

yum right?! [chocolate banana!]

I do not have dinner for y’all yet because it’s only 1:14pm here in Michigan! I always am so late to the WIAW party that I decided to post a wee bit early (;

So in honor of my wiaw being incomplete… I have a recipe for y’all!

peanut butter banana bread

  • 3 mashed ripe bananas
  • 2 C peanut flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powser
  • 1/3 C greek yogurt (I like vanilla chobani)
  • 3 tbsp butter, softened
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2/3 C white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Mix wet ingredients & dry in separate bowls.
Cassie was my baking partner!
Add dry ingredients to wet and stir. Be careful not to over-mix.
Grease a loaf pan and pour batter in. Cook on 350 degrees for 55-65 minutes.
Allow 15 minutes to cool before removing from pan.

Enjoy.

And by enjoy…. I mean eat it all.

This lasted two days at my house. We are a banana bread family.

“There should have been chocolate chips.” – my dad.

Today I am making a music video with my best friend, Cassie. (See above for her baking photo op.) It’s going to be ahhhhwwwsummm. (:

I hope you enjoyed this lovely post, bloggies! ❤ hopefully now that I have the wordpress app, I will have more quick posts updating you on yours truly (;

I would also like to thank Jenn for this amazing recipe that I had yesterday for lunch… YUM!

Although I did not have walnuts or cucumbers, it was still super good. I used strawberry cream cheese (;

Have a wonderful day! PARTY ROCK!

Oh & in the topic of yesterday, this helped me change my view a bit as well…

Day One: Gloom

I’m pretty upset.

Today is my first day of making my life better.

And the stupid weather has decided to rain on my parade. Literally.

Stupid.

I did kick off today with some delicious oats though. I love my oats.

[recycled photo because my oats always look the same.]

I don’t know if you’ve checked out my wishlist & goals page lately, but I want three tattoos. Yes three. I already have an eyebrow piercing. Hardcore? Basically. I mean how much more hard core can you get than a blonde girl who loves to wear summer dresses and never leaves the house without makeup on. I’m pretty scary.

I mean really. It doesn’t get more frightening than that.

So why am I talking about this? Because I don’t know exactly when I want those tattoos.

Namaste is going to go on the top of my foot after I graduate yoga school next year. BAM.

The other two? I don’t know.

So today I consulted my “wise mind” about this. I did an exercise where I found my wise mind underneath my sternum, and after calming my body and finding my breath, I started to think about these tattoos. I realized I am not ready for a tattoo yet. I felt my wise mind bunch up and it sent anxiety through me. There was some excitement, but I just felt tense and hesitant. I realized I am not ready for a tattoo. Maybe tomorrow, maybe next month, maybe next year. But right now, I am not ready.

[JSYK: the other two tattoos are my favorite bible verse on my upper thigh & a small quarter-sized ohm symbol on my ankle]

Tomorrow I hope that I can remember to make more oats in a jar. My chocolate almond butter is running low. It would be super sad if I hadn’t already bought another jar. #proactive

Lunch is going to be a smoothie – almond milk because I forgot my almond & coconut milk at Samms house. #iforgeteverything

Today Cassie is coming over so that we can freak out & be weird together. It’s lovely. Guitar hero and super smash Bros are staples. Probably more smoothie too.

I walked 3 peaceful miles listening to the Nutrition Diva podcasts. I also did 20min Zumba express.

Now throughout my days I need to try to consult my wise mind before making decisions.

Have a great day bloggies<3
