Rally glasses since I didn’t have a hat.. and how I felt by the end of that game.
Had nothing to do with the beer…..

After a fun weekend like this, I’m always happy to get back to my normal routine and healthy eats. A bunch of my favorite ingredients that I use everyday, I actually get online, so when Swanson Vitamins reached out to me to help celebrate their 45th Anniversary, I was psyched!

  1. I’ve never tasted salami & jelly as a pair before.. but i’ll take your word that it’s delicious 🙂

    Fun things from the weekend: Well we ended up with a different bed set then the one we were originally going to purchase from IKEA. Along with a whole new bed set (bed, wardrome close, 2 end tables, mirror & dresser), we got a new tv & fridge for the new place. Can’t wait for it to all be delivered & installed in 8 days 🙂

  2. I’ve been here in St. Petersburg, FL on a trip for work getting to study wild dolphins. Florida is HOT, especially when out on a boat for 4-5 hours at time. Regardless it’s been an amazing experience and I’ve learned tons!

  3. Swanson is definitely the company of the day hehe 🙂 Happy birthday! I would love to try the plant protein, that would really help my body recover from my high mileage! I can’t believe you only just made banana bread! Looks yummy though. I saw your snack on instagram, and was intrigued……it does sound like it would be very good….may need to find some rice cakes 🙂 My weekend was wonderful….and now I have my 16 mile long run as I pushed it back from yesterday!

  4. I haven’t made banana bread in ages. Love going to baseball games. Looks like you had a fun weekend. I got to spend a lot of time with my sister and scored some awesome bargains at DSW. And Swansons is great for so many things. I usually end up ordering things like stevia, chia and/or flax seeds.

  5. On my life bucket list: pose with one of those huge mascots. Now I just need to find one…
    I’m the worst at making choices but I’d definitely order Annie’s Cheddar Bunnies because a blend has been teasing me with them forever.

  6. Never attempted banana bread….i have a habit of drastically changing a recipe so everything i bake turns to blah:) Have you ever tried a rice cake with turkey, jelly, and blue cheese??? HEEAAVVAANNN 🙂

  7. What a fun weekend! I’m recovering from a long. fun filled weekend as well. Always fun but exhausting at my old age 😉 So hard to choose what I’d order… Probably almond flour as I always need that!

  8. Your banana bread looks fantastic! We had a lazy weekend, with some time at the pool yesterday. Just waiting for this baby to show up!

  10. I love Swanson products! They have the best products for the best value. I’ve been a long time customer! Just sayin’!!!!
