Happy Saturday loves! Hope everyone’s weekend is going splendidly.
SCARY: There was a HUGE boom outside a few minutes ago. SO WEIRD?! Power didn’t go off though so yayy!
This morning I decided to flex my
weak baking muscles! I made Triple Chocolate Cookies from Ellie’ Krieger’s The Food You Crave (HIGHLY suggested btw). Please excuse the odd two pictures where my camera decided to leave the upper left corner white and blurry.
Yum yum! So easy to make and they turned out divine. For my chocoalte I used mostly dark, but also some milk, butterscotch, and white chocolate/milk chocolate swirled chips. Umm, hello, yum?! I chose almonds for healthy fat as well! u
You spin my… No, ladies, we’re not going there. 🙂
Trust me, they are delicious!
Lunch was some leftover gazpacho topped with avocado slices, and some sweet potato casserole topped with all natural almond butter. I know y’all are probably getting tired of seeing it. Guess you’re just gonna have to deal! Hehe!
After lunch I was off to the gym. While there I biked over 14 miles! 😀 13.25 in 41 minutes to be exact. Not too shabby! Felt incredible. Afterwards I did the usual stretching and foam-a-rolling.
Please excuse the cut on my lower leg in this next photo. 😳
Now for the exciting news: My parents are HIGHLY considering moving out to “the country.” Okay, so it’s totally not the country. It’s like 15 minutes away from where we live right now and we’d probably purchase like 5 acres I think. (They want ten, haha $$$) They want to custom build a house and have vegetable/fruit gardens, chicken (for our own eggs), and a “greener lifestyle.” (i.e. solar panels) I think I would really like this! My only concern is the gym. Hopefully I will be working there by then (want to work in there childcare area) so I won’t have to pay for services I don’t think. My dad said we’ll make our own gym in our house with a tredmill, elliptical, bike, and a bowflex type machines. I just want hardwoods so I can do yoga and pilates 🙂 Either way, I’ll be happy. I would make my gym look so cool lol. Anyways… just letting y’all know what’s going on lately in my home. I hope this plan does follow through. If not, I love where we live now though so… Who knows 🙂 (And just to let you know, we wouldn’t move until next summer at the earliest…)
In giveaway news,
Verse of the Day: Colossians 3:17
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
I’ve gotta run! Bye girlies!
