I can’t believe it’s already Friday. This week has just flown by. Having Katie home has been so fun and I’m not ready for her to go back Monday. Thankfully in less than 3 weeks we’ll be heading to Nashville and get to see her again and Benny.
I’m sure you’ll be so shocked to find out most of my favorites involved my girlie this week, but first Happy St. Patirick’s Day!
This is pretty much the extent of our celebrating around here, although a little Leprechaun did turn Katie’s toilet water green…LOL
I had asked her for a list of things she wanted to eat this week and we’ve been eating all her favorites for dinner. She also wanted frozen yogurt so Monday night we marked that off her list.
Watching t.v. at night with Katie has definitely been a favorite this week.
We went to one of our favorite hiking spots Tuesday and hiked for a couple of hours. It was a gorgeous day and everything is so green from all the rain we’ve had. We had a great time talking and laughing.
We went to our first Warriors game Tuesday night.
The game was really close all night but thankfully the Warriors were able to pull it out in the end.
I was scrolling through Pinterest one day this week while I was on my elliptical…something I frequently do and looked at a bunch of recipes for smoothie bowls.
I thought I’d give it a try and came up with this delicious concoction. I’m not a big fan of bananas except in breads and such so I don’t usually eat them in smoothies of any kind but most of the recipes I looked at used them so I decided to give it a try. What do you know? I liked it.
Here’s what I put in mine:
1 frozen banana
A hand full of frozen cherries
A hand full of frozen blueberries
A single serving of Greek blueberry yogurt
A splash of almond milk
Put all of the frozen fruit in a food processor and pulse until it’s a coarse mixture. Add the yogurt and process until a thick frozen texture and then add a splash of almond milk to get to the consistency you desire. I topped it with toasted coconut and almonds.
It was so good I made a double batch after dinner for dessert. Kent and Katie agreed it was delicious. This is a great healthy option when you are craving something cold and creamy.
Grocery shopping is much more fun with a buddy. And on a side note, we hit the mother load with Halo Top.
I posted this on Facebook and Instagram this week. Sometimes you just need a reminder to pursue the things you want in life and don’t give up.
We’d like to take a trip after Benny graduates in May. I’m afraid I “may” have already waited to long to get the ball rolling. Shout out your favorite recommendations in the comments. No cruises…Benny hates the idea of that.
As with every Friday I’m linking up with these bloggers below, so be sure you pop over to their little piece of the blogosphere and see what tickled their fancies this week.
Have a great weekend and see you back here on Monday!
