Hey My Marvelous Rainbows!
Thank you so much for your comments. Each one of them really brightens up my day — I read them, and they really bring a smile to my face and makes my day that much more special. You truly are rainbows in my life, and I can’t thank all of you enough for all of support you have given me throughout all of this hecticness. My life has been occupied with my classes and assignments, but I will reply to you as soon as I can and catch up with all of the wonderful things you are doing.
Here’s some Marvelous Monday fun (and updates)!
I received this lovely package of Hemp Protein High-Fiber Powder in the mail from Amazon (love their free super saver shipping!) a few days ago. I was SUPER excited, as I had been looking forward to trying it out. It’s not my favorite in smoothies, but I love it mixed with vanilla soy/almond milk and cinnamon. (And it has some amazing stats, like 12 grams of fiber and 11 grams of protein! Nom nom.)
I added a link to my sidebar under my Follow-by-Email button right here: —>
And along with the hemp protein high-fiber powder I got Jillian Michael’s 6 Week 6 Pack workout video. I had tried this workout through Netflix (love that site SO much!) and I have been wanting to get it for a while. And now I have it. Jillian loves me so much she doesn’t mind killin’ me.
I love Kohl’s. Especially when they send me little “gift cards” like this. They are so nice. I’ll get myself over there as soon as I get my college assignments done that are due in a few days. I’m thinking of getting some sterling silver earrings — my ears are really sensitive to anything but silver or gold, and I don’t have many of that kind. I really like wearing earrings, so it’s a little thing I can do :)
I made some more of my Turkish-Inspired Hummus. It’s super simple to whip up in my BlendTec blender and is absolutely delicious with carrot sticks.
At the family camp my mom purchased a jar of raw honey from one of the families who attended. One of their sons has a beehive and actually harvested the honey himself. Nothing really beats the taste of fresh honey. (Now I feel like Pooh Bear! )
Some of the girls in my church requested I made some pumpkin chocolate chip cookies for an activity the next week. So I made some of Joy The Baker’s Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out beautifully! Their soft and delicate. Everyone loved them. <3
I also made me some more Homemade Sun Butter. (I went to the grocery store with my mom the other day and found out that a jar of SunButter costs $6.99!!! When a 12oz bag of raw sunflower seeds costs me a little under $2.50, I know making my own it worth it. I can get more the double (almost triple) the amount for the same price.) This batch I toasted the sunflower seeds a little longer, so it turned out with a nice toasty color. I had me some of this along with a sliced bosc pear (those are my FAVORITE kind of pear EVER!!). It was quite delicious.
I went to a dance this past weekend. The theme was Candy Land (the room looked like the Candy Land Game Board — I felt like a child again!)! I had SO much fun line dancing and hanging out with friends, but when I got home that evening I found out that I had lost my voice! Haha. I guess I deserve it when I decide to dance near the speakers.
I’m working on a recipe for Grain-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies. Tune in soon for some deliciousness!
Are your ears sensitive? Can you only wear certain kinds of earrings, like ones made from gold or silver?
I used to wear other kinds my right ear would always start hurting and getting red.
What are some of your favorite things to dip in hummus?
I need more choices so I don’t turn orange again!
Have you ever lost your voice?
The house gets unusually quiet when my sister loses her voice….
with lots of hugs,
