Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie Bowl

Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie Bowl

Over the last few weeks I’ve found myself in a breakfast rut. I have a tendency to find something I like and then stick with it until it is no longer appealing. My last breakfast love was cinnamon raisin oatmeal. We had a good run, but after a few weeks I woke up craving something new and was inspired to get creative in the kitchen.

After poking around in the cupboards, I pulled out a handful of ingredients and blended up this delicious peanut butter and jelly smoothie bowl. While it is an Instagram worthy breakfast, it ticks all the boxes in my book since it is packed with nutrients and full of flavor. Plus, you can keep things interesting by switching up what frozen berries you use to achieve new flavor combinations during the week. Yum!

Month in Review: January, 2018

Month in Review: January, 2018

January began under the palm trees in Florida and ended being surrounded by snowflakes in Wisconsin. After thawing poolside for a week, I needed an adjustment period to cope with the cold. Bundled under layers of thermals, I ventured back into the thick of winter and tried to build up my tolerance. By the end of the month Ian and I were enjoying long walks in the park and attended an outdoor festival. Needless to say, we got back into our winter routine without too much moaning about the cold.

Soon after we returned from Florida, Ian needed to travel to Eau Claire for work. Neither of us have spent much time exploring Eau Claire, so I jumped at the chance to tag along on this mini road trip. We stayed at a quirky boutique hotel, The Oxbow, and took an evening trip to Leinenkugels. Our drive home took longer than expected due to a snow storm, but I was grateful for the time we were able to spend together.

Month in Review: January, 2018

The rest of the month was spent with Mother nature playing games with us. One day all the snow would melt under a heat wave, then the next day we would be under a winter weather advisory. In years past, my heart would sink when I woke up to snow. This year I’ve made a conscious effort to embrace the cold and get outside. Having this mindset has led to magical walks in the woods, snowball fights, and enjoying the first outdoor festival of the year – Mittenfest!

January was definitely a busy month, but I’m glad we were able to kick off 2018 with so many wonderful memories!

Essential Oil Shower Steamers

DIY Essential Oil Shower Steamers

It’s no secret I’m a lover of bubble baths. I used to get giddy around the holidays just to see what new bath bombs Lush brought out and loved trying new products. Therefore, you can understand the convincing Ian had to do in order for me to move into an apartment – without a bathtub!  I went through a period of mourning, but have since adapted my “pamper night routine” to be shower-friendly.

While I no longer can soak beneath the multicolored foam of a Lush bath bomb, I can still enjoy uplifting scents while I shower. Sadly, these shower steamers don’t come covered in glitter or release flower petals, but they get the job done. When placed in your shower they gently fizz and dissolve as they release the scent of essential oils. They are the perfect addition to your daily routine, pamper night, or with the right oils – a natural remedy for a stuffy nose.
