A Few Favorites-Fall Edition

Hello and happy weekend! I am up before the family, enjoying a cup of coffee and some almond flour banana bread. I love mornings to myself. I get to enjoy the quiet and “me-time” before the day starts.

This afternoon, we are going to “Boo at the Zoo.” I am SO excited. K is going to be a teddy bear, and I have a mamma bear shirt and ears. My mom and mother-in-law are coming, too! I love that we can have an outdoor, safe Halloween activity for K.

Moving on….

Today, I wanted to share some of my favorite Fall things…

COOL MORNING RUNS: There really is something about the crisp, Fall air that makes my runs SO much better.

PODCASTS: I think my true crime podcasts are extremely fitting this time of year. A few favorites are My Favorite Murder, Crime Junkie, Morbid, Full Body Chills, and Dateline.

SNACKS AND BAKING:

I found these at Aldi, and oh my gosh…YUM.

FOOTBALL JERSEYS:

We are Cincinnati Bengals fans! Well, I am…my husband is not. Also, this picture was from when K was sick, so she has a pedialyte popsicle.

READING: I am currently reading the Harry Potter series.

TV SHOWS: I have been watching Ratched on Netflix and oh my goodness it is creepy and so addicting! Not for the faint of heart, that’s for sure. I am also watching the Bachelorette….it has always been a guilty pleasure haha.

DECORATIONS: I haven’t taken pictures of ours, but I love decorating! Our porch looks so cute and festive!

That’s all I have for today! K will be up soon, and I will be on mom-mode all day. I am looking forward to her morning hug! I love this mom life!

Have a wonderful weekend!

With love,

Carly

Breakfast Banana Split, A Sushi Night, And Fall Decorations

Good morning and happy Thursday, everyone! I hope the week is treating you well so far. I’m excited for the weekend. I took  tomorrow off work and my best friend is coming to visit! I’m also running a 5k this weekend. I love fun, busy weekends! Here’s an update of my week up until now. 

TUESDAY:

My mom and I went shopping for all of the fall things! Decorating in our first home has been so much fun!!

Fake flowers and a door wreath. 

Decorative pumpkins!

After shopping, we met one of my friends for sushi!

Edamame and won ton soup.

My mom and I split the sushi sampler! SO GOOD!!

WEDNESDAY:

Pretty uneventful. I went to work and the chiropractor. Dinner was a healthier walking taco which was awesome  (recipe later)! After dinner, we watched the Master Chef finale!

THURSDAY:

This morning I decided to make a fun breakfast. I love bananas so I decided to make a Breakfast Banana Split!

This can be made so many ways, but here is my version.

INGREDIENTS:

  • One banana
  • 1 TBSP of almond butter 
  • Vanilla greek yogurt 
  • Trail mix (mine had granola, nuts, cranberries, chocolate chips, and seeds)

DIRECTIONS:

  • Slice banana down the middle and spread almond butter inside
  • Microwave banana and almond butter for about 30 seconds 
  • Top with trail mix and greek yogurt as desired
  • Enjoy!!

YUM!!!!

I enjoyed breakfast with a Starbucks coffee!!

Now it is time for work! Have a wonderful rest of your day!

With love,

Carly
