Just popping in to say that this is the most amazing snack, ever.
Itâ€™s a banana topped with sunflower butter, chocolate chips, and crumpled potato chips.
Dude. Duuuuuude. So good. Itâ€™s a little bit of everything â€“ 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. Iâ€™ve been loosely following Apartment Therapyâ€™s The January Cure and Money Saving Momâ€™s Four Weeks to a More Organized Home, but vacation really through a wrench in my grand plans. Iâ€™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 werenâ€™t out-out, they were piled up on a guest bedâ€¦ but still), boxed Henryâ€™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. Itâ€™s a scary place, people.
If youâ€™re trying to declutter, too, check out this post by Jess Lively: â€œ2014 Throw Out 100 Things Challenge. Itâ€™s packed with tons of great tips on the process. Iâ€™m glad to share that link because, after this weekend, my only tip is â€œdrink wine beforehand.â€
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 leastâ€¦
