Trout Food + {Honey Almond Sweet Potato "Fettucini"}

This weekend we went up to the mountains...again ...searching for our future home.  Though a bit impatient and frustrated we're not finding what we want, it isn't a bad place to be spending every weekend :)  We stopped by the river to check out the trout and Babycakes wanted to feed them some Cheerios.  Surprisingly they actually rose to the top of the water to eat them!! Evidently these fish are desperate.  Besides having a blast, we captured this wonderful moment with a pair of amazing smiles. ...

New House! + {Strawberry Kale Smoothie} - HLTT10

So, in case you didn't see on Facebook, we got the new house!!  They accepted our offer and if all goes according to contract, we'll get the keys mid-November.  I am still amazed at the whole thing.  And by "whole thing" I mean: my life!  I am amazed at how everything is playing out. I finally understand some of the circumstances, though I didn't at the time.  You probably don't know, but ... Read more » about New House! + {Strawberry Kale Smoothie} - HLTT10

{Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie} - HLTT7

I ate a LOT of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as a kid.  And peanut butter and honey. And peanut butter and banana. To this day, I still love peanut butter. Like reallllllllllly love it!  There was a study released right after I got pregnant with Babycakes that said eating peanut butter while pregnant was bad and that it could contribute to allergies in children after they were born. I'm serious, giving up peanut butter for nine months was one of the hardest things I'd ever done! ... Read more » about {Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie} - HLTT7

{Healthy Pumpkin Muffins} + Bob's Red Mill Giveaway!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend!  I spent most of it up in the mountains, unplugged, with no cell service or Facebook (or blogging!).  It was refreshing for sure! I feel more alive there: surrounded by pine trees and wildlife, breathing in the fresh mountain air, exploring with Dear Hubby and Babycakes. But I'm back, and this is the day you've all been waiting for: THE recipe for healthy Pumpkin Muffins (or bread) is in this post! ...

{Greek Yogurt Pineapple Nut Smoothie} - HLTT4

I have been on an almond kick lately. Why? Besides their obvious nutritional awesomeness (healthy fat, high protein), the main reason is because I bought the most gargantuan bag of Blue Diamond Natural almonds at Walmart last week! It is literally 2 pounds of oven-roasted sea salt almonds. ... Read more » about {Greek Yogurt Pineapple Nut Smoothie} - HLTT4

Olympics + {CHOcolate Chip Banana Bread}

I don't know about you, but I just LOVE watching the Olympics.  Every night I find myself promising I'm going to go to bed early earlier, to no avail. I just have to keep watching! It's intriguing. It's inspiring. And I love seeing the smiles on the faces of the champions.  They have trained so hard for that moment, sacrificed so much, and just want to be the best...in the world.  You've probably seen the commercials, but Chobani is sponsoring this year's Olympics!  Talk about big time :)  The forward momentum they have is amazing ...

Date Night + {Reese's Spinach Smoothie}

I'm not sure what was the biggest highlight of Sunday night: a) actually going on a date night and using our Bonefish giftcard that we'd gotten a YEAR earlier, b) fitting into a dress I haven't worn in literally years, c) eating an entire meal at a restaurant without having to "manage" a toddler or dig into my purse 35 times to find something to occupy/distract said toddler, or d) actually talking to Dear Hubby for 2 hours straight with zero distractions. ...
