Double trouble!

Hello, happy Saturday to all:) I am currently at a swim meet, so I’m pretty bored. I decided to update you all on my past two days. Last night I was craving chocolate BIG time! Whenever the cocoa monster comes to visit me, I try to find healthy microwaveable brownies on Pinterest. I’ve tried a couple of them, but none ever hit the spot without a bunch of guilt to follow. So I just made my own recipe, throwing in whatever sounded reasonable. In it, I had:
3 tbsp wheat flour
1/2 banana
About 1/2 cup of water
1 tsp brown sugar
2 tsp cocoa powder
1 packet of truvia
I also added some dark chocolate chips and walnuts for a crunch. Toss it in the microwave for a couple of minutes and enjoy:)

My life the past 2 days has been swim meets. From 7:00 yesterday morning until right now, I have been out in the sun. I absolutely regret not using enough sunscreen yesterday, I was red as a beet. I learned my lesson and have been applying every 5 minutes (kidding). Anyway I bought a salad and an apple from the snack bar for an early lunch and at this point I’m just ready to go home. I’m going grocery shopping later today with my mom, so I’m very eager to finish my last race

Enjoy your Saturday, use your sunscreen!

Good morning!

I’ve been hearing about jamba juice’s oatmeal for months now, so I decided to give it a try this morning. As a crazed oatmeal critic, I have to say its just ok. Pretty creamy but I have had better :(
Don’t get me wrong, I’ll eat oatmeal above just about anything so I’m enjoying it!!

I also got a light aloha pineapple which is very good. I’m pretty picky about my smoothies and this one lives up to my high standards ;)

Also, I feel like today is going to be a great day! It’s very warm and clear skies are all I can see. I pray that you have a stupendous day as well!

Decorative Dishes!

¬†Good afternoon! I hope you are having a splendid day. I have the next couple of days off, so I figured I would spend them blogging… it’s quickly becoming an addiction.
All that to say, beware. I have lots to say and I hope you are prepared :)

I am a sucker for cute looking food. By that I mean I cannot pass up the purchase of cute plates/bowls/mugs etc …you get the point. So I decided to share with you all some of my purchases over time, and brag a little about my addiction.

A section of our pantry is dedicated to “my” food choices. I try to keep it stocked all the time, because the food I keep there has a lot of my daily meals and food substitutes. Here are a couple of my dishes (check out the captions for more info) ALso forgive me for the disorganization, I’m still learning to blog!!
