We celebrated a family birthday.
For my Mom’s birthday last Thursday, I made a cherry cordial cake and it turned out pretty fantastic. I used this recipe.
And yes, it calls for an entire stick of butter. That just means that it was super moist.
Rather than using the frosting called for, I simply blended cool whip + cherry pie filling for a light fluffy cake topping.
Oh, did I mention that we also had Thin Mint ice cream?
Thin mint doesn’t really jive well with cherry cordial cake – but on their own? They’re both delicious.
As you can imagine, I was feeling a bit sluggish the following morning. Luckily, all it took was a sweaty workout to get my energy back. Balance.
I enjoyed a big bowl of oatmeal for breakfast.
Okay, it’s been more than a while. Oatmeal just isn’t something that I regularly crave. But when I do, you better believe I do it big. Go big or go home.
I cooked 1/2 C. oats and 1 T. chia seeds in 1 C. water.
Once it was cooked, I mixed in a scoop of Vega Vanilla protein and NuNaturals liquid vanilla stevia. Then, I topped it all off with strawberries, bananas, cinnamon, and a big dollop of SunButter. Hit the spot, for sure.
I had Starbucks.
I can only justify so much extra spending and right now, all of my extra funds are going towards Yo Amazing. It’s kind of ridiculous actually.
Hopefully my obsession will die down sometime soon (although that’s doubtful) because even though the prices are very fair, my wallet can only withstand so much.
But seriously. Pistachio, Dulce de Leche, and white cake batter are so irresistible. My car just naturally finds its way over to the frozen yogurt shop – I have no control. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
I found a cute shirt for 6 bucks.
The shirt itself is pretty plain, so of course I jazzed it up with a leopard scarf (with a pop of hot pink) and some fun earrings.
I love buying inexpensive solid colored shirts and then using accessories to dress them up. Scarfs, earrings, long necklaces, bracelets—that’s the fun part.
Black Target boots completed the look.
I had frozen grapes for a snack.
They were just as delicious as I remember.
Someone helped me with the laundry.
Okay, so maybe they hindered my folding a bit – but they’re just so darn cute. So it’s okay.
Your turn! It’s been a while since…
