Who doesn’t like hiking around the desert first thing in the morning?
Watch out… I just downloaded a self-timer app for my iPhone. This blog is about to explode with self-timer pics.
I grew up in St. George, Utah and so I was really excited to show Brooke a few little trails and explore the red rocks before driving home. I think this is my favorite part of being a mom, showing Brooke new things and different places is kind of the best.
To fuel above walking around and taking pictures of ourselves we started with brown rice, zucchini, egg and feta. Nothing like a little stir-fry type thing for breakfast.
We drove home (took us about 4 hours), took naps and then went to my aunt’s house for dinner and Brooke had some quality dog time.
This salad. Such a good summer salad. Blueberries, feta cheese, nectarines, red onion, red peppers and we used the TJ’s Goddess Dressing. We also had bbq chicken sandwiches and the sweetest watermelon.
I like a girl that chooses brownies and ice cream for her birthday cake.
Brooke and I are super classy when we don’t have a high chair handy and all of the dining chairs are nice and I don’t want her (or me) to spill on them.
So I am trying something crazy. I am going to go 21 days without desserts/candy in attempt to eat real food/quality calories again. Whenever I travel I eat more sugar than a normal human should in a year and so I want to get myself back in the habit of snacking on healthier foods. I also need to start being a better example for Brooke… 21 days… here we go!!!!! Wish me luck or place bets on whether or not I can do it;) I don’t know why sugar is so hard for me to not eat 10 times a day but I think I should be able to get it under control by now.
And a few people asked for my road trip playlist… I am warning you, I like random music.
