A Marvelous Weekend #mimm

Hey friends! Hope the weekend was a marvelous one for you! Mine was pretty great (and hot) but pretty awesome!

I’m so thankful for my family, first off! The fact that we’re so close, makes everything better! One of the most enjoyable things is laughing with them. Laughing and making jokes helps me remember to be joyful in the situation I’m in right now.

Saw this on pinterest this morning…

Audrey Hepburn - LAUGH <3

Audrey Hepburn seriously has some of my favorite quotes, but this one, so true!

Alright, let’s get this started! And big thank you to Katie from Healthy Diva Eats, for hosting!

Post-long run dinner! Sauteed beets, beans, rotisserie chicken, and squash from our garden. Half way through cooking the squash, we decided we didn’t want just sauteed squash, but fried squash. It happens!

    So much MARVELOUS! My weekend was fantastic. Lots of friend time and “me time.” My favorite QuestBar is Chocolate Chip. Favorite quote: “If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.”- Confucius ❤ Cheers to a great week, love!

    I just think it’s so awesome you & your Dad run together. I mean forreal, he must be in rocking shape! Big props to him 🙂 haha! May I ask how you make your greek yogurt fluff?

    Favorite quest bar : white chocolate raspberry

      He’s like the bomb. He’s 50 and can run a half marathon in like 1:33. His fastest 5k was last summer and he was like 6 seconds from getting under 20 minutes. He’s my inspiration every day!

      Greek yogurt fluff: 1/4-1/3 cup if plain nonfat greek yogurt (don’t usually measure it), sweeten with stevia, add 1-2 tbsp of coconut flour (usually I start out with 1 tbsp because I don’t want it dry thick, but I want it fluffy thick.) Then I either add 1/2 tbsp of PB or almond butter! Sometimes ill add cinnamon!

    That is so awesome that you can go on runs with your dad! I wish my dad could still keep up.
    Your dinner looked soooo tasty! I’ve never had sautéed beets… I’m intrigued

      Cookies and creme is also one of my faves!

    I love Audrey Hepburn – she was such a class act. My favorite Quest bars are cookies n’ cream and raspberry white chocolate. They totally cute my sweet tooth!

    Mmm all that food looks good! 🙂 I’ve never tried the peanut butter supreme quest bar! How does it compare to the other flavors? I’ve only tried the brownie one and the cinnamon roll one!

    • Audrey says:

      Brownie one is my like fave!!!! But the PB supreme is perfection. Its got little pieces of peanuts in it but not too much. So its the right amount of crunch. Its got a superb PB flavor as well. Love it!
