Good afternoon bloggies!  Are you having a Happy Humpy day?  I’ve been super productive: After a DMV visit I am now sportin’ an AZ driver’s license!  With my new legal name, Averie Harmony!   I have to go back there to deal with vehicle registration baloney but hey, I’ve got the license.  That’s major. 

Thanks for everyone who wrote in to tell me they were digging the Raw Vegan Apple Crumble Recipe

And of course, thanks for all your comments on hair salons and pampering yourself and what your strategy is on that.  My gameplan with my hair, cuz I am not really loving it, is to give it 2 weeks, and I have an appointment lined up with a new girl that I found, and in 2 weeks if I still wanna be blonder, she’s gonna hook me up.  So I feel better just knowing I have an appointment on the books and if I need to use it, I can.  For all those who asked for a pic, sorry, haven’t had a chance to get one of the new ‘do but it’s not like I am super impressed by it or anything so you’re not missing that much.

Just wanted to mention the TropicOats I made this morning.  It was like a little Tropical Blast on a cloudy and cool for Phoenix kinda morning:
1/3 c dry oats
2/3 c lowfat vanilla almond milk
1 Tbsp Chia Seeds
1 piece of dried mango broken apart
Then I nuked.
And then added 2 Tbsp Shredded Coconut
Cinnamon & Brown Sugar
Garnished with Fresh Pineapple Chunks

Yeah…it worked.  All while spritzed up in this really tropical smelling raspberry body spray I picked up.  I love body spray!  I usually have a few “flavors” going at once and spritz depending on my mood…sensual amber to raspberry sorbet to sunflower fields.   Ya know, a girl needs options.  Do you like body spray?  Any favorites that you’re really partial to?

And for anyone who’s asked me about my non-dessert meals, my dinner last night was brock, B.S., cauli, tomatoes, zukes & cukes, on a bed of greens, dressed with the juice of 1/2 orange, agave and cracky blacky.

Before I go, I wanted to thank Naomi because I won her Give Away!  This is the first time in the blogosphere that I’ve won anything and I am stoked!!!!  Thanks, Naomi!!!  Muah!!!!!

So tomorrow I am going to grace you with a little dessert that is mind-altering….

Oh and tell me about the tropical trips you’ve been on and have fond memories of or tell me about where you cannot wait to travel to….
I love to travel and my idea of a stellar trip is a pina colada in one hand, a mindless magazine in the other, with white sand between my toes and looking at crystal blue water.  What’s your idea of a great vacation?

Here’s a couple pics from our holiday trip last year.  My little girl was still a baby.  Now she’s almost 3, but going on 16!
