Hello, Sunshine

I almost can’t believe it…after what seems like weeks of incessant rain and dreary weather, the sun is actually making an appearance today.

Yes, I am excited about fall, but I’m also more than excited to finally see some rays of sunshine making their way through my windows. They do a pretty nice job of highlighting my festive fall decorations…and my delicious mid-day smoothie bowl.

Today’s smoothie bowl is actually my Blueberry-Banana smoothie, which I made with a couple extra ice cubes and an extra pinch of xanthan gum to up the thickness.

Then, I topped it off with two of my favorites: Quaker Oatmeal Squares + Love Grown Foods Cocoa Goodness Granola.

Pure deliciousness.

A couple quick things:

  • <—You may or may not have noticed that I recently changed my Featured Recipes over to the left here. With the fall season approaching, I figured I’d highlight some of my favorite fall baked goods. Feel free to give one (or all!) of ‘em a whirl!
  • I have a new recipe up on Celebrations.comEerie and Easy Deviled Egg Eyeballs. Be sure to check those puppies out!
  • Jay and I are heading out to Happy Hour tonight, followed by an evening with friends (including the Newlyweds!)…it’s sure to be a great evening!

Hope everyone else is having a great day and is ready to enjoy the weekend!

Question for the Afternoon:

Any good plans for the weekend?
