Where did the weekend go? We had a nice day yesterday that included taking to Anna to church for the first time! She started crying right when it started so I took her out and walked around until she fell asleep and then she was out for the whole service.

Ready for church:


After church we did things around the house to get ready for our upcoming trip to Florida (we are leaving on Wednesday)! We packed, did laundry, Brady worked in the yard and cleaned. Then we headed to Duke and Jen’s for a cookout. I brought my camera but didn’t take any pictures – not sure what I was thinking?! We had a great grilled dinner and fun conversation!

When we got home we were exhausted-something about getting up a few times a night will do that to you!

This morning I was in the mood for something easy, healthy and fast. I have been on a huge English muffin kick lately but since we were out and I didn’t want to buy more before our trip, I had to think of something else.

Since I started nursing, my nut butter addiction has gotten out of control. (Weird because I couldn’t really eat much when I was pregnant because it sounded horrible!) Now I want nut butter all of the time – I mean all the time! Breakfast, snacks, lunch, dinner and dessert. In order to not consume a case a week I need to think of ways to include nut butter that don’t involve me going at the jar with my spoon.

So this morning I made some almond butter yogurt to dip my apple into for breakfast. I have made this a few times and I love it! It helps me enjoy lots more nut butter (it works with all kinds) without having to consume 500 calories worth.

Almond Butter Apple Dip (or any nut butter)

  • 3/4 cup plain yogurt (it is best with Greek but all I had was TJ’s European Plain so I used that today)
  • 1 Tbsp. nut butter
  • sprinkle of stevia or agave
  • 1 tsp. ground flaxseed
  1. Mix the ingredients together and eat! You could also add chocolate chips or coconut to make more flavors!

This whole bowl is only about 185 calories and has 14 grams of protein. It’s good by itself or with an apple to dip into it!


Off to attempt some P90X while Anna takes a little nap.
