Chocolate Chip Walnut Bars

This summer, I learned to balance my time between housework, blog, social media, and fitness. There were times when I recognized that my son needed to get out, we both did, so I would go for a walk. I made it an adventure for him. We walk by 3 playgrounds on our walk, depending on the distance. Many times, we only went by 2 playgrounds. Regardless, he’d play on each of them for about 5-10 minutes!  We usually went for a walk in the morning before it would get too hot and the playgrounds were empty!

Pumpkin Spiced Banana Nut Muffins

When Fall rolls around, I am reminded of Pumpkin Spice everything. I’ve never had the fancy cup of Pumpkin Spiced latte from a coffee shop, although it sounds delicious! I’ve tried Pumpkin Spiced Coffee from Trader Joe’s and that was good! I used to buy it as often as I could. I love banana nut bread and muffins, so I thought to add a little twist with the Pumpkin Spiced Banana Nut Muffins!

My son and I love muffins. There are times when I buy them from the grocery store bakery!  While they are so delicious, they are costly! I used to buy so many that I’d save the plastic containers they come in to reuse to water my plants in. I have houseplants that need to be watered from the bottom, and the plastic containers are perfect for that.

Cherry Almond Muffins

We recently made a batch of Cherry Almond Muffins and they barely lasted a week!

When I was growing up, I used to love summer. We had a pool in our backyard, so we would swim almost every day! It was such a great way to have fun and cool off!  Now that I am an adult, I dislike the heat. I stay indoors as much as possible because the heat is so bothersome to me.
