i cooked…once

That basically sums up my eating lately. Needless to say I have not been cooking much, not anything of interest anyways.

This is about as fancy as my meals have been lately.

♥ ♥ ♥

14

♥ ♥ ♥

That would be zoodles in a Japanese miso broth that I got in my latest Graze box.

I know. Fancy.

I must really be dropping the ball in the cooking department because Matt even stepped up his game and made us dinner one night. I guess he wasn’t impressed with my coffee cup dinners.

I’m glad he did though because he made the most amazing chicken tacos.

♥ ♥ ♥

6

♥ ♥ ♥

He even wanted to plate them all pretty for the picture. I soon ruined their beauty made them more amazing by adding about half more of an avocado to mine. I don’t know what’s been going on with me lately, but I have been obsessed with avocado lately. I can’t get enough.

But that’s about it in the home cooking department. There has been a lot of eating out, but I like to say with good reason.

We got invited out for a double date and at our company’s request, sushi was on the menu.

It has actually been awhile since Matt and I have had sushi, so we didn’t hesitate to accept the offer.

We started with the most amazing tuna sashimi.

♥ ♥ ♥

7

♥ ♥ ♥

This was before the whole tuna scare, I’m not sure it would have stopped me anyways.

We then both ordered a sushi roll. Matt ordered the eel tempura roll and I got the salmon roll.

♥ ♥ ♥

8

♥ ♥ ♥

We usually end up sharing each others rolls which works out because both were very delicious.

There has been another reason for the lack of creative meals as in Matt has been traveling a lot and hasn’t been home. His mom has been sick and in the hospital basically since our wedding. It’s been a frustrating month of the doctors not being able to tell us what exactly is wrong and it has been a headache with poor hospital care and a total lack of communication between hospitals and staffing. It’s a long story and I could vent for hours, but I’ll save you that drama.
So with Matt on the road I have had a lot of nights and dinners alone.

♥ ♥ ♥

15

♥ ♥ ♥

Some nights were simply Whole Foods sushi, eaten on the floor.

At least I have my kitties and pup to keep me company. Other than the begging, they are pretty good dinner company. Not so great in the dinner conversation department.

When Matt returned however we thought we would have a night out to spend together.

We decided to go to True Food Kitchen which is one of our favorite restaurants. Their food is always so fresh and delicious.

We of course got cocktails to start.

♥ ♥ ♥

10

♥ ♥ ♥

For an appetizer we decided to stick with a favorite of the herb hummus.

The pita had a perfect crisp to it and as per usual I stole all the feta.

♥ ♥ ♥

11

♥ ♥ ♥

For our dinner entrees Matt decided to go with the fish tacos.

♥ ♥ ♥

12

♥ ♥ ♥

I ordered the papaya salad and added salmon.

♥ ♥ ♥

13

♥ ♥ ♥

And of course one of my favorite parts of this salad was the half avocado it was served with.

This salad really is becoming one of my favorites.

After dinner we got some gelato from an amazing gelato shop that is conveniently located next door to True Foods and headed home to veg out on the couch.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_0534

♥ ♥ ♥

A perfect date night if you ask me.

Sadly I think my future holds more dinners on the floor or eaten out of coffee cups, but that’s just life right now. And I just have to rolls with the punches.

♥ ♥ ♥

Sometimes I think lazy dinners can be quite marvelous. What are some of your favorites?

some recent scenes

Hello loves, yes I am still alive.

I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off because my wedding is less than a month away! I seriously am in denial that in a few short weeks I will be married!!

Things seem to be falling into place, but we’ll find out on the big day if I actually have all my ducks in a row.

(a chicken and a duck metaphor. who am i?)

So needless to say I don’t have any huge news to share with you, but thought I would give you a glimpse into some recent scenes going on around here.

Some new fun finds recently..

♥ ♥ ♥

The new Detour Simple Bar in Salted Caramel Cookie Dough

IMG_4148

♥ ♥ ♥

Guys, just look at that cookie dough goodness. This bar is ah-mazing. It’s like eating dessert, but dessert with a lot more protein and fiber. I am a sucker for almost all things cookie dough and these really hit the mark.

Speaking of dessert.

I am a big fan of Artic Zero to begin with… and combined with a Vitalicious brownie?

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_4184

♥ ♥ ♥

Yup, I think it’s safe to say we all know this was one delicious dessert.

I don’t remember where I got the brownies, if I found them in a store, or if I bought them online, but regardless I need more of these in my life soon!

And then I saw that Arctic Zero came out with new chunky flavors.

I had to grab one to try and it was a hard decision to choose which flavor I wanted to try.

I finally decided on the cookie dough chip, because remember above when I said I was a sucker for all things cookie dough? Still holds true.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_4227

♥ ♥ ♥

This new ice creams are sooo much creamier than the originals. I had heard that the new flavors were totally chunk-tastic as well, and I will say I was a tad bit disappointed with the amount of chunks in this one, but it was still pretty tasty. It just makes me more excited to try some of the other flavors to see how they chunk up.

Other recent scenes?

Matt and I met for lunch one day on my day off. I had a late breakfast so I didn’t eat (don’t worry I had a beer to tide me over) but I defiantly had some burger envy when his lunch came.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_4153

♥ ♥ ♥

Actually not going to lie, I had more of a tot envy then anything. Annnnd I may or may not have stolen a few.

I mean seriously. Tater tots.

And I don’t know if you guys will believe this or not, but it had been a bit since Matt and I had gone out for sushi.

We soon had to fix that.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_4220 - Copy

♥ ♥ ♥

The only bad thing about me eating sushi… It just makes me want it all the time.  Another sushi date is already in the works.

When we don’t have sushi dates a close runner up is Whole Foods salmon summer roll.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_4190

♥ ♥ ♥

I seriously never get tired of this stuff.

Well loves, it’s back to the wedding black hole. I will probably be there for the next few weeks, but I can’t wait to share the wedding happenings with all of you!!

♥ ♥ ♥

Have you tried the new Arctic Zero flavors? What’s your favorite?

let’s play catch up

Hey loves! Yes I know it’s been awhile. But this girl has been busy.

So let’s play catch up should we?

I had my final wedding dress fitting, but since I want to keep the dress a bit of a surprise, no pictures. Matt and I however have seemed to start a tradition of getting a celebratory drink after we have a wedding accomplishment, so we met at a local bar to have a drink.

♥ ♥ ♥

3

♥ ♥ ♥

I know you were expecting to see a picture of a beer, and don’t worry, I had one of those too, but I saw the bartender make this drink and it just looked so good. It was gin, muddled strawberries and cucumber, and simple syrup. It was very refreshing, I’m not typically a huge gin fan, but it was great in this drink.

So about this wedding, needless to say I am getting excited!It will be here before I know it!

In the meantime I have been busy with work as per usual. Nothing new with that. But some things that are new?

I have been in contact with Truly Organic Foods for some time and was finally able to try some of their products. They are an online store based in Canada that offers raw and vegan foods. Their  wide selection of raw and vegan organic superfoods include raw chocolate, maca, lucuma, mesquite, raw organic nuts, seeds, goji berries, hemp seeds and protein powder, spirulina, coconut oil, organic teas, organic herbs and spices, Himalayan salt, vegan protein powder, vitamineral greens, gourmet organic raw nut snacks. It’s an amazing source for basically anything you could want.

Here are some items I decided to try.

♥ ♥ ♥

5

♥ ♥ ♥

Superfood Cereal, Coconut Flour, Pure Wraps – Coconut Wraps, rawmio hazlenut utter, and nud raw vegan cracker crisps

I of course immediately dug into the nud vegan crackers as they were one item I was very excited to try.  I personally love that green taste, so I thought these were delicious! I have yet to use the wraps yet, but those were another item I was very excited to try. And let’s be real…chocolate hazelnut butter is basically the best thing ever.

I am very eager to try more products from Truly Organic Foods!

I wish I had more home made goodies to show you, but as of late I have had no desire to cook!

I did make some delicious waffles however, but I kind of cheated with using my FlapJacked protein pancake mix.

This stuff is soooo good though and makes it so easy!

♥ ♥ ♥

1

♥ ♥ ♥

I had only made pancakes with it prior, but I am happy to report that it makes amazing waffles as well.

Other then that it has been a lot of meals out.

♥ ♥ ♥

4

♥ ♥ ♥

The most amazing beer cheese and pub pretzels while watching football at our new favorite Sunday football hangout.

And as if you’d be surprised, a sushi date at our favorite sushi joint happened as well.

♥ ♥ ♥

6

♥ ♥ ♥

7

♥ ♥ ♥

Sashimi and a salmon roll are pretty much my go to’s. But hey, if it’s not broke don’t fix it.

Other random scenes.

I’ve been (slowly) reading this book. I have heard that it just has really good information in it, with all my inflammation and bloating issues going on I’ve dabbled with the idea of doing a Whole 30. Regardless of if I decide to do it or not, I love reading about nutrition in general.

♥ ♥ ♥

10

♥ ♥ ♥

 I just only wish I had more time to actually read it.

Oh. And in case you forgot. I do cute things sometimes.

♥ ♥ ♥

2

♥ ♥ ♥

I left Matt a cute message on his Starbucks cup one morning.

Other then that loves, it’s been pretty boring around here.

I hope you all are having a wonderful start to your new year and a great weekend!

♥ ♥ ♥

What are your weekend happenings?

a perfect birthday

Long time no talk my loves!

I feel like so much has happened in such a short amount of time. Let me catch you up a bit.

It seemed like Christmas came and went in the blink of an eye and very quickly it was my birthday!

Considering my birthday is only three days after Christmas it really is a blink of the eye.

We didn’t have any huge plans for my birthday, really it’s just another day, but I was lucky this year for it to fall on a Sunday so I actually had the day off and Matt and I planned to just kind of play things by ear.

We have a Sunday tradition of going to a local coffee shop that also happens to serve alcohol 24/7.  Don’t judge, but on Sunday’s yes I do start drinking at 9am.  But I get a Pomosa, which is a Mimosa, but with pomegranate juice instead of orange juice, so it’s kind of healthy right?

Whatever, it was my birthday.

♥ ♥ ♥

2

♥ ♥ ♥

The day only got better. Matt was nice enough to treat me to a manicure, so he took me to do that while he did some work at home. Matt has been amazing since my car accident, since the insurance deemed my car totaled you are only given a rental for 7 days after they make an offer on the vehicle. I found that kind of silly, but Matt had been great about taking me to work and carting me around town so I can run my errands.  It may seem small and something a significant other “is suppose to do” but Matt was so selfless and never made me feel like it was a burden to take me places. That kid seriously humbles me sometimes.

The one thing that we did plan for my birthday was dinner.

And I’m sure it’s no surprise what I wanted.

Sushi.

We went to our favorite sushi restaurant and decided since it was my birthday we would get a little crazy and order something new.

♥ ♥ ♥

5

♥ ♥ ♥

Well nothing too crazy for us, we both know we like eel, but have never gotten the eel nigiri so we decided to start with that.  It was amazing. I have a feeling we will be getting it every time now.

Matt and I then split some tuna sashimi and he got a soft shell crab roll.

♥ ♥ ♥

3

♥ ♥ ♥

I decided to go with the salmon roll – one of my favorites.

♥ ♥ ♥

4

♥ ♥ ♥

Dinner was of course delicious and was a wonderful birthday treat.

We had plans to go to our city zoo as they hold a special event called Zoo Lights, but it has been ridiculously cold here and all I really wanted to do was go home, put on some sweatpants and relax.

But not before picking up some dessert.

♥ ♥ ♥

11

♥ ♥ ♥

Staying classy with frozen yogurt and wine.

It was the perfect way to end my birthday.

Well loves that is at least a quick update to what’s been going on, however I have so much more to tell you.

Lot’s of new and exciting things have already happened for me this new year!

Until then I hope everyone has had a wonderful start to their new year!

wedding fun and dinners out

Hello loves! Long time no talk!

As always I have been busy busy busy, but this week I actually have two days off from work, so I am trying to take advantage and catch up on a few things. Of course wedding planning takes the forefront, but I also thought since it was What I Ate Wednesday time, I would give you guys a little sneak peak into what I’ve been eating lately.

♥ ♥ ♥

Fall into Good Habits: WIAW

♥ ♥ ♥

But while we’re on the wedding talk I will just mention that Matt and I did our engagement photo session over the weekend and had a blast! We did it at a local spot called the Brat Haus.  We chose this location because we wanted it to be a bar scene and not only did their inside bar have some great photo options, but they also had fun outdoor areas to take pictures.

♥ ♥ ♥

8

♥ ♥ ♥

One thing I will say is I love our photographer. She had gotten there before up and as we drove us she basically ran to our car with excitement telling us all the ideas she had. We had so much fun with her and she really wanted us to just be ourselves, hang out and to let her capture our real love. And she let me take an Instagram selfie at the end of the session. A sign of a true great photographer.

♥ ♥ ♥

7

♥ ♥ ♥

We haven’t gotten the photo’s back yet, but she did post a teaser on her blog.

♥ ♥ ♥

I can not wait to see the rest!

But enough wedding ramble, on to the foods!

I will admit most of it has not been home cooked. We have been eating out like mad people, but honestly I’m not really complaining.

Dinner dates at Whole Foods have been happening a lot.

♥ ♥ ♥

3

♥ ♥ ♥

It just is honestly so convenient after work, and since we have basically become regulars, it just feels like we’re hanging out with friends at the bar and having dinner.

I also think I could eat sushi everyday. And their brussels sprouts on the hot bar.

Which is a good thing because a few days later we had a sushi date with a friend at our favorite sushi spot.

♥ ♥ ♥

6

♥ ♥ ♥

I usually get the Rainbow Roll, but decided to try something new and got their Alaskan Roll, which was spicy salmon, krab mix, and cucumber. Anything from this place is pretty much amazing, their fish is always so fresh.

The lack of cooking continued through out the week. When you have good food so conveniently close to you sometimes it’s just too easy to just eat out or grab something and bring it home.

Enter Chipotle.

♥ ♥ ♥

5

♥ ♥ ♥

Matt and I have a thing that every time we get Chipotle, we have to eat it picnic style and eat on the ground. It’s silly, but it’s because the first time I ever had Chipotle he actually laid out a blanket on the floor and we had a little picnic.

And to keep the Mexican theme going, it was just Taco Tuesday (is this a thing anywhere else? apparently it’s a huge thing here in arizona, but i hadn’t heard of it before moving here).  Soooo of course Matt and I had to go get some taco’s.  I met him for lunch after some errands and taco’s were had.

♥ ♥ ♥

4

♥ ♥ ♥

We were both surprisingly impressed with these taco’s. Carne Asada with a pickled jalapeno salsa, avocado cream, and pickled cabbage. Not only were these taco’s pretty to look at, they were absolutely delicious.  It was the perfect combination of flavors.

Some other tasty treats to mention.

I recently won a giveaway for Bare Snacks Coconut Chips.

Now let me say. I have been on a pretty big coconut kick as of late. And I knew I liked coconut chips to start with, but their chocolate bliss coconut chips. Holy Goodness. These things are ah-mazing.

♥ ♥ ♥

2

♥ ♥ ♥

I’ve been putting them on basically everything, even fro-yo brought home. I mean why pay for mediocre toppings, when I have more delicious ones at home?

And one last thing to mention.

HOLIDAY CUPS.

♥ ♥ ♥

1

♥ ♥ ♥

I may or may not have gotten a little too excited when I got my coffee the other morning and saw the holiday cups were back. I know everyone loves their holiday flavors, but white chocolate mocha’s with soy will always be my winter beverage of choice.

Well loves off to do more wedding fun stuff, I hope you all have a wonderful week.

♥ ♥ ♥

What is your favorite winter drink?

Do you celebrate Taco Tuesday?

snapshots and highlights

Hello loves!

I hope you all are having a relaxing weekend. I’m sure I sound like a broken record when I say how they seem too short, but it seems like my weekends are a broken weekend as well!

Time seems to be flying and I can’t believe July is almost over, however with the crazy heat we have been having here in Phoenix, I am welcoming August with the hopes that summer will soon be gone. Because seriously, record breaking 116 degree days are getting pretty old pretty quick.

Life other than work has been pretty mundane, but I figured I would give you guys a few snapshots into what has been going on lately.

Something not so new is I have been on a huge sushi kick lately. I swear I never get sick of the stuff!

It started with a dinner out with a friend.

♥ ♥ ♥

2

♥ ♥ ♥

I love a good classic rainbow roll and we found a sushi spot that just always hits the spot and their rolls are huge, so one roll (plus sashimi and a seaweed salad) fills me up. This girl can eat.

But having good sushi always does one thing to me.

Makes me want more.

So bad that I even settle for grocery store sushi.

♥ ♥ ♥

1

♥ ♥ ♥

Not once.

But twice.

♥ ♥ ♥

3

♥ ♥ ♥

Then Friday when you would think I had enough sushi.

No. I asked made Matt meet me at Whole Foods for dinner.

With one thing in mind.

♥ ♥ ♥

4

♥ ♥ ♥

More sushi.

Last time we went they were out of my favorite roll, which made me super sad, however it did give me the opportunity to discover that they had an amazing sesame glazed tofu that was a pretty tasty substitute.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_0496

♥ ♥ ♥

The sauce was so amazing that I asked for extra on the side.

Tofu never looks super appetizing, but goodness, this tasted amazing.

More repetitive eats from the week have been amazing salads I have been making lately for lunches.

I use to always have some sort of sandwich for lunch, but in trying to cut some wheat/gluten from my diet I started making salads.  So I didn’t want to admit this, but I really think I was having some sort of reaction to wheat because once I started having salads (making sure to always include a protein and healthy fats) I noticed such a change in my energy level. I use to get the typical 3pm crash, but I noticed I don’t anymore and that I still have plenty of energy. Dun dun dunnn. I loved my sandwiches so even though I welcomed the fact that I no longer had that crash, I was sad to give up my sandwiches. Well, I kind of take that back, I don’t miss them all that much.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_0434

♥ ♥ ♥

Huge salad with a base of Cruciferous Crunch mix from Trader Joes topped with tons of veggies, pecans and avocado for my healthy fats. For my protein I usually have chicken or turkey on the side. I’m not completely sure if it’s the increased amounts of protein and fat or lack of wheat/gluten that is helping with the energy, but regardless the combination seems to be working for me. And although not completely gone, my bloating has gone down dramatically.

So those have been some highlights on what’s been going on. Sushi, sushi, sushi and a salad. Seriously, that’s my life.

I also have some breakfast highlights to share with you as well, but we’ll save those for another day.

Enjoy your weekend loves.

♥ ♥ ♥

Do you get the 3pm crash?

Is there a type of food you crave and could eat endlessly?

 

weekend regulars

Weekends are just too short, are they not?

Since I work Saturday’s, I really feel like I can never get anything done on my weekends. Because I am not going to lie, I am selfish and really just want to be lazy because I have such little time to actually be lazy. If that even makes sense.

However, by mid-day I am always itching to do something, it’s just not cleaning the house or being productive like I should be.

So instead non-productive things are done.

Like dinner and drinks at Whole Foods.

♥ ♥ ♥

6

♥ ♥ ♥

I am obsessed with Whole Foods roasted brussel sprouts.

Like, it may be a problem…

A problem I’m ok with having.

♥ ♥ ♥

18

♥ ♥ ♥

I also really like beer. We have visited our Whole Foods bar so often, we are now “regulars”. So much that I added one of our favorite servers on Instagram. Because I was a creeper and made sure she was in my beer shot photos.

♥ ♥ ♥

19

♥ ♥ ♥

I will say I was a bit productive on Sunday.  While Matt was still sleeping away I took the opportunity to experiment a bit in the kitchen with a new product I had received.

Have you guy’s heard of banana flour? Yea, I didn’t even know it existed. And with my obsession with banana’s, in finding out about this glorious product, I just had to try it.

Guys, be sure to check back because I made an ah-mazing pancake recipe with it.

♥ ♥ ♥

15

♥ ♥ ♥

And even though I am the queen of adding protein powder to everything, these are protein powder free!

But speaking of that… I did however make a pretty good chocolate pumpkin pancake with protein powder.

♥ ♥ ♥

2

♥ ♥ ♥

I will be sharing both recipes very soon. So whatever your preference is, I have an option for both.

The textures of these are total opposites, but both tasted great in their own ways.

More random weekend happenings?

♥ ♥ ♥

7

♥ ♥ ♥

Surprise! More beer!

Matt’s dodgeball league had their team draft, so of course I had to go and support him.

My beer may or may not have been overflowing.

♥ ♥ ♥

A

♥ ♥ ♥

Surprise! More sushi!

We met a friend out for dinner and we almost always get sushi.

I’m not complaining.

Seriously, never get tired of this stuff.

Well loves, it’s late and I’m tired so I leave you with sushi porn and pancake teasers.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week.

♥ ♥ ♥

Do you take time to relax on the weekends?

Are you a regular anywhere?

 

sushi, beer and love

Do you ever look at the date or day of the week and think to yourself “where has time gone?” Because that’s how I feel right about now. Time is just flying.

My life has been busy and on top of that emotionally stressful lately. A lot of feelings I am trying to deal with and honestly with all that going on, I haven’t had the time nor the desire for much else. But alas, I feel I need to check in with you lovelies because even with all the stress and the crazy I know I need to stay positive and keep trucking on!

So with that being said what a great time to focus of the marvelous things that have been happening.

♥ ♥ ♥

♥ ♥ ♥

It seems most things that make me happy these days are food, beers and my love.

 Nothing wrong with that though right?

Matt and I had sushi plans with a friend who ended up canceling on us, bummer. Even though we re-scheduled for later in the week, Matt told me that he was craving sushi so bad that he still wanted to get some.  So we thought we would save money and meet at Whole Foods and just get sushi from there.

Well friends, I’m not sure we ended up saving money.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_9031

♥ ♥ ♥

It’s not my fault, I was like a kid in a candy store with this selection. I think my eyes were bigger than my stomach and I got a bit carried away. And failed to look at the prices on top of that.

♥ ♥ ♥

1

♥ ♥ ♥

Yup friends, I spent $60 on sushi. Whoops. It was delicious though, so I guess it was worth it, but next time I think I’ll pay a little more attention to the price tags.  Matt and I were stuffed, but since we spent so much we forced ourselves to eat it. Tough life.

Two short days later we had our re-scheduled sushi date with our friend. You would think we would get sick of sushi, but we don’t.

We met at Sakana which we hadn’t been to in awhile and again forgot how huge their sushi rolls were and may have ordered a bit more than we should have.

We started with tuna tataki, which oh my goodness was amazing.

♥ ♥ ♥

4

♥ ♥ ♥

For our rolls Matt got the Soft Shell Crab roll which is one of his favorites.

♥ ♥ ♥

8

♥ ♥ ♥

And then we got three other rolls to share.

♥ ♥ ♥

3

♥ ♥ ♥

Ahi Ahi Roll, Boston Roll, Rainbow Roll

Yup. massive rolls. I think this is one of the few times we have not been able to finish everything we ordered.

I have never taken sushi to-go so when our waitress asked if we wanted a box I asked her if she personally had ever had left over sushi and if it keeps. She said she had, but only for the next day. I didn’t want to waste sushi so I decided to take it home and would just see if it was good the next day.

I had intentions of having it for lunch, but Matt’s parents come into town for an early Mother’s Day and we ended up having lunch with them at Olive Garden. Our service was less than stellar and I ended up taking some soup home with me from lunch.  It was still a great afternoon with Matt’s parents, as we took them to look at a possible wedding location. There was actally a wedding going on that day so it was great to see the spot set up for the occasion so we got a better idea of what it would look like. And it just made me super excited for my wedding!!

Since we were so busy through out the day, I was actually thankful for leftovers. I didn’t want to take the time to cook so it turned into a left over dinner kind of night.

♥ ♥ ♥

9

♥ ♥ ♥

I didn’t even have to dirty a plate!

Side Note: Sushi is just as good the next day!

Other random marvelous happenings?

1. Having a bar in your grocery store, having the best bartender who always remembers you, and also gives you free cookies and chocolate stouts to dip it in.

#strangebutgood?

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_9079

♥ ♥ ♥

2. Co-workers who buy you ice cream.

♥ ♥ ♥

6

♥ ♥ ♥

One of Matt’s co-workers raved about an ice cream and insisted on buying us a pint. I have no idea why he was so passionate about it, but I’m not about to question anyone who is giving me free ice cream.

It was Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip and it was ah-mazing.

Thank you co-worker.

3. Mother’s Day Breakfast

Ok. So I’m not techincally a mom, but it doesn’t mean I can’t have a special breakfast on Mother’s Day right?

I didn’t think so.

So with it being Sunday and Mother’s Day, breakfast called for waffles.

♥ ♥ ♥

7

♥ ♥ ♥

Pumpkin Spice waffles layered with bananas and maple syrup.
I don’t think I even need to tell you how amazing these were.

But I will. They were amazing.

And one more marvelous thing, but it will have to wait until later.

Not one, but two recipes I need to share with you guys!

♥ ♥ ♥

10

♥ ♥ ♥

I know right, who am I?

So make sure you check back soon, because these were two delicious kitchen successes.

Until then loves, have a great week.

♥ ♥ ♥

How was your weekend marvelous?
How did you celebrate Mother’s Day?
