I've got a lot going on right now, though. I don't want to overwhelm myself. But I do hope you'll be sticking around, because I'll get through this blogger slump. Better days are coming, and I will be having lots to share with you!
Today I'll share some little moments with you - the weekend happenings, captured in photos.
These past few years I've really been trying to eat healthier and just be healthier overall. Then in September of last year, I took on a six-week fitness challenge, thanks to a good friend. Participating in that challenge really made me want to better my eating habits. Almonds are a healthy snack option. I roasted the ones shown above, but only slightly, because I like the taste of raw almonds. How do you like to eat almonds?
Banana Bread Muffins
I've always loved banana bread, and I use my mom's recipe. It comes out perfectly moist and delicious every time. If I don't want to make loaves, these muffins are great for a quick grab 'n go breakfast. And the kids love them!
Lately, Baby Girl has been a BIG fan of the frozen yogurt shop that's near our home. She always gets the same thing - chocolate yogurt with whip cream, cherries, and some chocolate sprinkles. She doesn't switch it up very often, and if she does, it's only to add a little bit of mochi.
On our most recent visit, I got a Honeydew Slush to share and try out (we've never had any of the drinks or teas offered there before). It was really good. My oldest son actually ended up drinking most of it, even though he was supposed to share with everyone else. But yeah, it was that good!
My oldest son saved up his money to buy himself some new running shoes. Sunday was the day. We took a trip to the mall, and while walking through Sears to get to The Footlocker, Big Sis spotted these Disney Cinderella princess slippers. They're cute little jelly sandals for summer, with a little heel that lights up. Well, Baby Girl was immediately enchanted with these. She needed some summer shoes anyway, and Big Sis agreed to split the cost with me. Baby Girl now has some new princess slippers. She wore them right away and proudly carried the bag around for the rest of the shopping mall trip.
I never knew there was a flower called Spider! They're really pretty and come in different colors. I like this yellow and orange variety. It's bright and cheerful. I love how flowers can just make a person happier. Don't you?
So, what were your recent weekend happenings?
