Friday Countdown

by tinareale on January 18, 2013

Good morning again! Oh, I had so much fun yesterday and learned so much. I don’t have time to share it all just yet, though. So you and I will have to wait until next week. Until then, I have some Friday fun! Then, go have a great weekend. I know I plan to do so. Finishing up this wonderful trip then loving on my family.

4 Scenes from the Week

How cool is this water bottle filler that was part of the water fountains in the Atlanta Airport?!

Genius idea for a more milkshake-y consistency for smoothies? Freeze your milk base (I used Silk Chocolate PureAlmond) in ice cube trays. Use 4 cups plus another 1/2 cup of liquid almond milk and the rest of your smoothie ingredients for a super creamy blend. #sogood #postworkoutdessert

And because I’m apparently on a food kick…here’s a dinner concoction I fell in love with this week. Spaghetti squash mixed with Sundried Tomato Laughing Cow, turkey sausage, broccoli, onion, and red bell peppers. Very filling and very nutritious.

To mix things up, I will share this funny story brought to you by Braedon. I told him he could bring one thing into the car to play with, per usual since it helps the kids get out the door easier. What does Mr. Smartypants do? Grabs a bucket FULL of other toys as his “one thing” to bring. I don’t want to think of the creative conniving he will have as a teenager.

Love them! Cannot wait to see them tomorrow!

You’ll have to let me know if you make the hummus! So good!

Look forward in hearing about the trip! It is always nice to get away, but missing loved ones does start to kick in after awhile ;)
