{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. ...

{Pineapple Teriyaki Meatloaf} made with Greek Yogurt

There's some people who just like things the way they like them: Traditional. Simple. Predictable.  I'd venture to say Dear Hubby is like this...in most areas.  But me, not so much.  I like flair. I like creativity. I like trying new things. I like making grilled cheese with blackberries & basil. ... Read more » about {Pineapple Teriyaki Meatloaf} made with Greek Yogurt

Happy National Running Day!

Yesterday was National Running Day! (I actually didn't know until I saw the bajillion blog posts about it...heh).  But I shall celebrate none-the-less even if I'm a day late. I still don't/won't call myself a "runner"... but I am getting into the habit of running, slowly but surely.  It all started with the lovely Corrie Anne.  If you missed her guest post, be sure to go back and read it. 

Go-To Meal: Taco Salad

I got this idea from one of my new Blends (Blogger + Friend), Lindsay.  She blogs over at The Lean Green Bean.  She talks about in this post, how we all have "go-to" meals...you know, the ones that are quick and easy and delicious and that we can pretty much make in our sleep.  I loved her series idea so much that I want to do it on my blog as well.  These go-to meals are often simple and mayb ...

Determination + {Strawberries & Cream Pancakes}

Last night everything was screaming "NO RUN"...legs were sore, Babycakes wouldn't go to sleep, stomach hurt, and even dear hubby was whispering: "You could just skip it tonight." But my heart wanted it.  I had commited to YOU on Facebook that I would run 2 miles after work, and I just wanted to do something GOOD for my body.  So, I tied those purple laces and headed out the door while dear hu ...
