Another week that's flown by! This week has actually been a bit of a short week for us as Jesse had the day off on Monday - and we've been busy, busy, busy ever since!
I'm definitely glad for a weekend though - it's been a productive week of work but I'm ready to relax! Well... somewhat relax ;P Our Saturday is free as can be whilst our Sunday is jam packed once again.
Recent Celebrations: Yesterday was Jesse and my sixth un-iversary. Un-iversary not anniversary as it's not really official (I wouldn't call Jesse my "boyfriend" until he was here in person :P), but we've spent the last six years together and I wouldn't change a second of that time!
Recent Yums: I made my first green smoothie in forever and it was SO delicious! The lovely Leanne from Healthful Pursuit just launched her latest eBook, The Vibrant Life Cleanse Program & Cookbook, and I made the "Crazy Monkey Green Smoothie" which was amazing. All of the recipes are incredible and the eBook is just $24 and includes meal plans and shopping lists as well as delicious recipes. You can get it here, but check out her other eBooks too!
Recent Wish: That the rain would stop! I so don't like this cold and soggy weather :(
Recent Garden Progress: Check it owwwwttt.. This rain has been doing something good - my baby herbs are flourishing! See how they started out.
Recent Cuteness: Clearly not Jesse's socks (apparently they're a million times comfier than any other sock - but I think they're hideous, especially when he pairs them with his fluro work shirt :P). Chanel is always a fan of outfits and yesterday I tied a piece of fabric around her neck like a little bandana and she pranced around the house for hours like a pretty little farm dog. That dog totally knows she's cute.
Recent Cravings: Recent thoughts - when will I have time to make banana cheesecakes?! I almost have the recipe perfected - just a few more tweaks and it'll be on the blog!
Recent Reads: These youth ministry books. Tonight Jesse and I are in charge of all of the games and cooking for our youth group so I've been brainstorming ideas. We're going to be making DIY Granola Bites with different mix ins, walking eachother through a blindfolded maze and doing some other fun activities. Also, check out our new logo designed by yours truly ;)
Recent Fun: Last Sunday we had a movie date night and went to see Mr Peabody and Sherman. It was totally cute and definitely a movie to see!
Recent Things in Our Fridge: These Obela Hommus to Go Cups and a double batch of Mint Chocolate Raw Bites. I haven't had hommus in forever as my stomach hasn't been able to handle beans/legumes, but I'm thinking I'm going to have to give it a try and see if my stomach can tolerate legumes again (fingers crossed!). Jesse already tried to claim them all, but he can't say no to his can't-eat-anything wife ;P
Oh and a batch of what we like to call "Reese's Rice Crispy Treats" are in the fridge setting up. It's the simplest recipe but Jesse absolutely loves them so we often make them together. He's told me I need to post it even though it's so simple so keep an eye out for a recipe soon!
But tell me your recents:
