My Thursday involved lots of B’s:


Pink silicone spatula with broken handle

I’ve had this spatula since my pregnancy.  I remember standing in my kitchen making homemade vegan gluten-free granola and scraping down the pot with it.  I had a rough pregnancy and I was very morning sick all-day sick for much of my pregnancy, but I loved granola and will always remember standing in my kitchen with that pink spatula knowing that I had a pink bun in my own oven while I was making granola.  That was 5+ years ago now.

Time flies.  And breaks happen.

The handle got caught in my utensils drawer the wrong way and when I opened the drawer, snap, crackle, pop.  I’m sad to see it go but it’s a full moon and things have a tendency to break on full moons.

Busy parking lot and busy stores.  I wanted to get some grocery shopping done before the (holiday) weekend.  Apparently so did the rest of San Diego.  What a zoo!

Happy Veteran’s Day to everyone.  I admit, this holiday snuck up on me until I was informed Skylar didn’t have school Friday.

Bike.  I went bike shopping for the little princess.

Her grandma and grandpa are considering getting her a bike for Christmas and they requested that I check out bike stores in the area in the hopes of finding something suitable.

I think she’d love it.

Baking happened

Then these bad boys happened

Donuts baking in baking pan

If you’re really craving a donut, try these buns on for size.  You can make them as muffins rather than donuts if you don’t have a donut pan.

1. Do you have Veterean’s Day off?  Weekend plans?

2. Broken anything recently that you wish you hadn’t or that has some memories attached?

Something as silly as a spatula has some nostalgic memories for me.

Same with a favorite curling iron that bit the dust as well as a pair of sunglasses.  They reminded me of all the events I got ready for, all the times I did my hair obsessing over whether it looked okay or not and what my life was like when I bought that curling iron 10+ years ago!

And certain sunglasses that have broken over the years remind me of times spent on certain and favorite vacations, or what car I was driving when I had a certain pair of shades.

Have a great weekend and thanks for the Natural Protein & Energy Drink Giveaway entries!
