Just popping in to say that this is the most amazing snack, ever.
It’s a banana topped with sunflower butter, chocolate chips, and crumpled potato chips.
Dude. Duuuuuude. So good. It’s a little bit of everything – kind of like this post!
What did you do this weekend? My goal for 2014 is to seriously declutter and organize our home, so I worked on that. I’ve been loosely following Apartment Therapy’s The January Cure and Money Saving Mom’s Four Weeks to a More Organized Home, but vacation really through a wrench in my grand plans. I’m still getting stuff done where and when I can. But I knew that I had to get some major tasks done over the weekend or the first month of 2014 would end without much progress towards the bigger goal.
I cleaned out the junk drawers, organized the attic, put away the Christmas decorations (they weren’t out-out, they were piled up on a guest bed… but still), boxed Henry’s old baby clothes, cleaned out my car (I discovered almost an entire box of cereal scattered under the seats), and tidied up the garage.
Up next: my desk. It’s a scary place, people.
If you’re trying to declutter, too, check out this post by Jess Lively: “2014 Throw Out 100 Things Challenge. It’s packed with tons of great tips on the process. I’m glad to share that link because, after this weekend, my only tip is “drink wine beforehand.”
Speaking of handy tips and tricks, MomHTP sent me this video link. If you make a lot of egg whites or yolks at a time, it would definitely be handy!
And last, but certainly not least…
