My son and his girl went to Seattle and Portland on their first vacation together and for my son to meet her father. These are 4 of his 400 pictures!!!
This is the souvenir they brought home to me………
Since it is Monday, and my day off ~ I vowed to take the time to enjoy the morning sun and post in my blog. You know how I love the morning and evening sun coming in my house. My new mug is from the “first” Starbucks located in Pike Place Market, Seattle, WA. The perfect gift for me :) Thank you Brandon & Megan.
Actually, this is my breakfast today….but normally it is my sweet-tooth snack.
Frozen banana slices and 2 tablespoons of peanut butter! YUM!
Now, this can’t be an everyday thing, because of the peanut butter.
270 calories, and 16 grams of fat.
If you cut the peanut butter to 1 tblsp, then you only have 8 grams of fat, which is about a third of the fat you should have for the day. And believe me,1 tblsp is PLENTY! But for photography purposes, I had to go with the 2 tablespoons :)
While deciding to photograph this treat, I was looking in my kitchen for a plate and I found these cute little plates that I bought on sale months ago for $5 ~ I forgot I had them.
I could save the rest of what I have to say for another post, but I have been meaning to share these (below). I picked them up a couple of weeks ago with a Barnes and Noble gift card I had from the girls at work. Barnes and Noble is always my request if anyone insists on gift giving!
I know you all have seen Tara’s book on many of our fellow bloggers blogs, but I want to share as well. Tara is one of the first blogs I found that just blew me away. Her humor, her photography, her love of her family …. And to top it off, she wrote this book … I think she deserves all the recognition we can give her!
Lastly, for today, I want to share with you what I am doing for my heart. Oatmeal. I have been meaning for sometime now to eat oatmeal each day to counter-act all the bad things I do to my heart, caffeine, lack of cardio, stress etc. My mom swears that she lowered her cholesterol by these three things daily. Oatmeal, an orange and fish oil tablets. I have incorporated the oatmeal into a smoothie with orange juice, soy milk and a frozen banana. I semi-freeze it and drink it throughout the day at work. It is my mid-morning snack, my lunch and my afternoon pick me up.
Banana Oatmeal Smoothie
1 frozen banana
3/4 cup oatmeal (uncooked)
1 cup orange juice
1 cup soy milk
Put in a blender until smooth. Freeze for one hour.
