WIAW – A Day at the Market

It’s Wednesday, yet again, and that means it’s WIAW!


I had a piece of toast with half pb&banana half avocado.

I had the exact same thing when I got home from cross country. One piece of toast isn’t enough for breakfast!


Since it was like 90 degrees out I wanted something cold and refreshing. Which means green smoothie. It was NOT as good as normal though, since I only had kale, no spinach 😦 I really don’t like kale in smoothies. It never mixes well.

I knew I needed something more so I had, you guessed it, an avocado turkey sandwich. It will never get old.

Then I headed to the Farmer’s Market to set up my stand! I sold my green beans and tomatoes. My cousin sold her wine racks and homemade purses, and my mom sold Tastefully Simple! It’s only $5 to set up a stand, so I figured why not? I made $12 😀

I don’t even know what dinner was. A whole bunch of randoms thrown together. I wish I was creative with meals, but I’m not. I eat the same things everyday.

Green beans, broccoli & hummus, tomatoes, guac, chips & salsa. I really wasn’t even hungry that much. The weather was all groggy and humid which makes me not hungry!


I had big plans. I actually felt like baking something! I had so many recipes. But that’s the problem. I get overwhelmed and can’t pick something! So, dessert ended up being ice cream. Moose Tracks and Vanilla. With horrrrible quality.

So… not my best day of eats, but not my worst. But check out these amazing (and simple) treats!

Have a happy Hump Day! 😀



Hey everyone, long time no see! I’ve been tagged by Miranda to do this little survey floating around, and I thought now would be the perfect time! But first I’m gonna talk a little about what I’ve been up to. I’ve been at “the cabins” with my dad’s family for the past couple of days. I’m supposed to stay for the week, but I had to come home early since cross country officially started!

I had a lot of fun there. I didn’t have any plans so I just took each day as it came. Every morning I ran the 5 (hilly) miles around the lake. Breakfasts were usually toast and cereal, lunches were sandwiches, and dinner was whatever was made. I actually ate all of the dinners, not worrying about time or what they were! I hardly took any pictures, which is why this post is looking a little wordy 😉 Anyway, I had a really nice time catching up with my family and just relaxing. I mean, look at this view we had everyday!


So now the survey! Let’s go 😀

Current book:

The Michigan Murders. I’m about halfway through, and it is really good. Crime lover right here!

Current music:

Whatever is on the radio. I like everything but country!

Current guilty pleasure:

Mom made scones and let’s just say I’ve eaten my fair share 😉


Current nail color:


Current drink:

Water. All day every day. With an occasional glass of milk thrown in.

Current food:

The past two days have been toast. One with peanut butter and banana, one with avocado.

Current TV show:

MLB Baseball. Go Tigers!

Current wish list:

An iPod shuffle! I want to get one so I can listen to music while I run without having to wear an arm band. Anyone want to get rid of one?! 😉

Current needs:

There’s nothing that I really need right now. Oh wait – a haircut would be nice! It’s split end central over here!

Currents indulgence:

Elephant ears and funnel cakes and caramel apples and french fries. Okay, fair food! It’s fair week!

Current blessing:

Just enjoying the rest of my summer and being happy! 😀


Current excitement:

My first cross country meet next Friday!

Now I want to hear these answers from Brittany, Liz, Sunnie, Molly, Allie, and Katherine! If you want to do it please feel free!

Have a great weekend everyone 😀

WIAW – Simple and Yummy

First of all, a very big Happy Birthday to Sunnie at Modern Girl Nutrition! Hope you’re having a wonderful day, girlie. The big 16! Another wonderful thing- yesterday was the last day of school! No more middle school!! 8th grade recognition recap coming soon 😉

My relationship with food is getting tremendously better. I’m not stressing about when I’m eating or what I’m eating. I’m deciding if I’m hungry or not and then eating if I am. And I feel much happier! Also this summer I’m going to try to space my eating out every couple hours instead of eating 3 big meals a day. It was just so hard to do being on a school schedule.

I haven’t been taking as many pictures of my food either. I’ve even been forgetting! It is so much less stressful. I love it.

Breakfast yesterday- I didn’t even take a picture (and I don’t even remember what I had!) so I’ll show you today’s!

Waffles with Greek yogurt, peanut butter, and bananas. I love waffles.

Lunch yesterday. Ohhh myy goodness.

A turkey, swiss, pesto, spinach, and tomato panini. This hit.the.spot. Plus some leftover strawberry salad on the side. Definitely the best lunch I’ve had in awhile!

Dinner last night was nothing special, at all. I was going on a bike ride with some friends so I wanted something quick and easy.

Oatmeal with almond milk and brown sugar added post pic. I’m wondering, have I ever told you how I make my oatmeal? I fill the pot with a little less than a cup of water, once it boils I turn it down to low and add 1/2 cup oats, a mashed banana, and an egg. Cover it, mix a few times (or don’t) and let it cook for 20 minutes, lid optional. Done!

That’s the only way I like oatmeal- so far. It kind of bakes, and you get banana in every bite! Anyone have any oatmeal tips for me?! I’d love to hear them!

Thanks to Jenn for hosting the party, and I’m off to an end of the year bonfire! 😀
