The return of the breakfast cookie. We had them for breakfast the other day, and needless to say, Liv was stoked that she had A COOKIE FOR BREAKFAST. She ate almost the entire thing! I’m so excited to bring these back in the rotation because they’re so convenient to make the night before.

The reason why Vine exists.

.Productivity tips from a CEO.

Trader Joe’s sweet, savory trail mix. It has every type of chocolate chip, along with multiple nut options (<– a weird phrase if I ever heard one haha) and dried cranberries. I’d show you a pic, but it’s gone 😉

Livi’s singing. I finally caught the finale of “Let It Go” with the camera yesterday. I wish I could take more videos with my phone, but alas, it’s totally out of space again. #iphoneproblems

The hazards of permissive parenting. 

These thoughts about Fitspo. (Basically I love everything Miz does and says and is.)

A new safety app.

Last night’s grilled feast:

Grilled  1 of 1

(chicken thigh, corn on the cob, bacon-wrapped and goat cheese stuffed jalapeños and asparagus)

This made me cry.

The Vitamix’s small yet powerful sibling:

My kind friends at Vitamix sent me one of the new S30s to check out. It’s the perfect size for smaller counter space, and I love that you can blend the smoothie in your to-go container. LOVE <3

    Livi is the cutest. So cool that she likes breakfast cookies….though I’m not surprised since her mama has good taste. 🙂

    I’m surrounded by boxes this weekend. Wah. 🙁 BUT I do have a spa date with my SIL tomorrow, so there’s that!

    Have you tried deleting text messages? My phone was full of “other” storage and the guy at the verizon store asked me if I send a lot of media via text. Um, I have a 2 year old and family all over the country….why yes I do! Delete delete delete. Empty phone!

    I really want a vitamix, but I people have tried to convince me to go for the ninja. It just doesn’t seem to be as good though.

    I also thought I was on the list, but I have not received an email in many weeks.

    Thank you!
