weekly highlights {2}

Hey there, how's your week going? We started our music jar that I mentioned last week, and because Aaron and I both contributed bands and musicians (and we have pretty different taste in music), we have more than 52 in our jar... so it will be the jar that keeps on giving!

Anyway, here are last week's highlights.

I loved this pic of my girl


  • Healthier Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Muffins - I'm always skeptical of a recipe with "healthy" in the title, but these muffins--made in the blender--were so good! They're still sweet thanks to the maple syrup and banana, and the peanut butter and oats made them hearty. The true test was Jona, and he loved them! 
  • Smoothie bowls - these are a breakfast favorite for me. This week mine had frozen strawberries, spinach, yogurt, milk, a little bit of maple syrup, and vanilla. I topped them with granola and sliced almonds. Yum! 


  • Food-themed children's books - wouldn't you know my little food lover (Violet) ate these books up this week? We have been reading Bee Bim Bop! by Linda Sue Park and How to Feed Your Parents by Ryan Miller every night. 
  • Circe - I finished this and loved it! (Book post to come...) 


  • What Should I Read Next? podcast - Making up for lost time in your reading life. I love it when Anne's guest and I have similar tastes in books. I often add to my TBR on all the episodes, but on this particular one I wanted to read everything they talked about. 


  • Funny Violet quote - We were reading Bee Bim Bop! and there's a picture of a baby in a high chair. She points out that the baby is using a spoon and fork, and then goes "Good job buddy!" 
  • Easy lip color - Nivea Blackberry Lip Care. It goes on like a lip balm and moisturizes my lips, but it's a subtle dark berry color that is so pretty! I have been wearing it nonstop.
