Most kiddos are already back to school but where I live, we don’t go back to school until the day after Labor Day. I honestly have always thought that was normal just because of where I grew up but I guess we’re really different from the rest of the country! I can’t believe it’s already another start to a new school year and I can’t believe it’s already time for apples :) my favorite fruit!
When I was young, I could eat apples for all three meals. My parents would ask me what I’d want after dinner since my dad always made us eat a serving of fruit every evening, and I’d happily exclaim, “apple!” I really need to get Jason and I out to an apple orchard this year. I think my favorite variety of apples are honeycrisp and gala apples. I’m not a huge fan of red delicious (so waxy!) or any other ones. Do you have any favorites? I haven’t tried pink lady apples yet so maybe I’ll pick them up next time I head to Safeway. When I was there this second time around to pick up ingredients for this recipe, they had mounds of mounds of various types of apples in their fruit section! Talk about love! Anyway, I picked up granny smiths this time around. They’re my favorite to bake with because they hold up so well and the tart and sweet flavors are perfect.
You won’t believe what I ended up doing yesterday. After my gripes about how I don’t want Fall/Winter yet and how I want summer to last longer…I went shopping with my girlfriends and I ended up buying a winter coat. Not just a light Fall coat but a full-on, puffy winter coat that looks like the Michelin man and it is the warmest thing ever. I’m such a hypocrite. It’s so hard to not buy Fall/Winter stuff when they’re everywhere in…Read More
I’ve ordered a bunch of loungewear lately and I think I’m just subconsciously preparing myself for the cooler weather. I live in leggings and flowy tops in the Fall/Winter (probably partly to hide all the hibernation eating I do, haha). The cold weather just makes me not want to do anything but curl up on the couch with a good book! I have a feeling that this Fall/Winter I will be devouring a ton of books. Just within the past…Read More
Ok, so if you love buying workout clothes or just wearing yoga clothes in general, you need to get on Fabletics. I have seen the ads all over Facebook with Kate Hudson’s face plastered on it (she’s a co-founder) and never clicked through to try it. Jenny mentioned it a couple weeks ago on her blog and that’s what made me pull the trigger! If you sign up as a VIP, you get an outfit monthly, that you can preview before they…Read More
The other night, I had a dream that a spider was crawling on my face and under my sleeping mask. Like, I literally felt its legs and body just crawling on top of my eyelids. If you know me at all, you’ll know I’m pretty terrified of any bug. I will literally scream at a bee zooming by me or an insect crawling near me. Seriously, not meant for the outdoors. I’ve never been camping before and I’m pretty sure…Read More
How are we already in mid-August? It’s crazy that summer is almost over and Fall is just around the corner. The weather this week in the DC-area has been very Fall-like. I’m talking about waking up to 58 degree weather and having it only be in the mid-70′s with a light breeze. We were very lucky to not have gotten the heat and humidity that this area is used to. Haha, now I’m really scared for what winter has in…Read More
Being a recipe developer you can only imagine how often I’m at grocery stores. I practically live in them. I’m pretty sure all the employees recognize me and wonder why I’m always there. I navigate the aisles like the back of my hand and I can pretty much usually get out of the store within 30 minutes or less, depending on how much I have on my grocery list. On mornings when I go at like 6 or 7 (apparently I don’t…Read More
