Hip Hip Hooray!

It's Friday! My plans this weekend=SLEEP and knock this cold. I lead such an exciting life. You can be jealous. Actually there is some majahhh baking going down in this house this weekend. It's for a special baby brother who went off to college this week. Hopefully he doesn't check out the blog before he gets his special "baby goes to college" box of fun!

In other news, last night I was supposed to go to dinner with some work friends. I canceled due to the feeling that I was going to pass out at any minute. I came home and fell on the couch. I also was supposed to run 1.5 miles yesterday. I might have to pull a double header on Saturday and Sunday to get my miles in. (Don't I sound like a real runner now? When really, every mile is a struggle. I am such a faker!)

At some point we were digging in the fridge for food and discovered a good number of zucchini on their last leg. I've ran into this problem before and had a failed attempt at zucchini bread. So we tried zucchini muffins instead!

They look very gross when you're mixing them up.

And then 30 minutes later (we made jumbo sized muffins so it took a little longer)

It was Jenna's recipe and Jenna never seems to let me down with her recipes. Going to culinary school must make the difference :)

Much softer and better. I'm taking one for a later morning snack!

This morning I made superfood overnight oats in an attempt to knock out the bad in my body and bring in some good...but then I was running late and slopped it all together into this...

In the mix was overnight oats, I promise. Hidden under a lay of banana soft serve then topped with peanut butter, cacao nibs and dark chocolate chips. In the oats was
  • 1/2 cup rolls oats
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • Goji berries
  • maca powder
  • chia seeds
  • strawberry jam
This morning I whipped up 2/3 banana with about 3 strawberries for some banana soft serve. And inhaled everything, almost the bowl itself, as I flew out the door. 1 more day of work then I can relax and rest up. For another week. Does anyone else feel like it's never ending?

Happy Friday Everyone!
