Good morning, friends!
This week has been a weird one–and I haven’t been full of motivation like I usually am. So here I am in the 8:00am hour ready to start blogging and then take my little Annabelle on a walk! So to perk things up this morning for both you and me, here’s my favorite quote: “the best is yet to come”.
Does anyone else ever get the extreme itch to travel? Wanderlust as they call it? Well, that’s me right now. My husband and I were contemplating a weekend getaway, but the logistics kind of get in the way, so instead we booked our anniversary trip in June! That certainly made me excited and I can’t wait for that! (details on that later)
So, I’ve actually stuck to my “one new recipe per week” so far this year! Although some weeks I have done more elaborate recipes, I can’t be too hard on myself when all I can muster are some flourless chocolate chip protein muffins…but ohhh man. You’ve got to try these. I subbed chocolate protein powder for my second batch this week (that good) to give these some extra staying power. The best part is they have no flour, sugar, nothing bad. All the good stuff, and they’re not some crazy health nut recipe that your man won’t touch. These babies have been approved by everyone. Do yourself a favor and make a batch.
Because this post is already all over the place, we’ll keep going with that theme. Our new puppy Annabelle turns 3 months today and she has been so much fun! My friend Stevie and I took our puppies (both same age) to SMU to run around and they have such a blast chasing each other and running around.
Last random thought this morning– has anyone ever been to Ziziki’s for brunch on Sunday? It’s amazing. I think it was about $20/person for their buffet which included their Ziziki’s cheese bread, coffee and bottomless mimosas. The actual buffet itself was awesome–high quality and plenty of options with actual fruit and vegetables involved! Too often brunch in Dallas is mostly yellowish orange colored: mimosas + eggs. My husband, a non-egg eater was happy there were lots of other options for him. Yeah, I know. No eggs for him while I could eat them for every meal! Maybe one day he’ll convert :)
Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday! The weekend is just around the corner!
