Five Things Friday!

Happy Friday!

It's been a great week, but I'm glad the weekend is here! I decided to do a little different "Five Things Friday" post this week, hope you like it!

5 things I ate:
I still look forward to my weekly Quest bar!I don't limit myself to just one a week for any reason other than I don't want to go through them too fast because I'm cheap! No flavor has yet to beat cookie dough, but  I am really wanting to try the S'mores one-just haven't been able to find it yet!

It had been a while since I've had my french toast egg, bacon, cheese sandwich. It really is one of my favorite meals, and so easy to make.
I had some bananas that were going bad, so I made these yummy banana bread protein muffins. They're always good, but this time they turned out reeeally good!  I love having these as a post workout treat, snack, or dessert. They're made with just protein, oats, bananas, cinnamon, egg whites, baking soda... and chocolate chips of course!

Y'all know I LOVE my post workout protein shakes, and I have a different one after every workout. Well, this one I had the other day was the bomb. Yes, I just said "the bomb". I just added some pb2 to my chocolate iso-whey, and it was seriously like drinking a Reese cup milkshake.

And this was my treat meal last weekend, which was delicious. I made some baked Panko breaded chicken fingers...with tater tots on the side. I. LOVE. tater tots. LOVE them.

5 scriptures I read:

1 Peter 2:11
 Dear friends, I warn you as “temporary residents and foreigners” to keep away from worldly desires that wage war against your very souls.
1 John 4:11
 Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other.
Ecclesiastes 5:10
Those who love money will never have enough. How meaningless to think that wealth brings true happiness!
Proverbs 11:35
A generous person will be made rich, and whoever satisfies others will himself be satisfied.
1 John 4:16-

5 things that made me happy:

The weather for the past few days has been soo nice. Warm enough to acually sit outside on the porch and read! I know it's just a tease, but I'm gonna enjoy it while I can!
This baby elephant! This is so where I want to be right now-face planting in the ocean! Ha! How cute is that?  

This adorable pic of Celeste my sister posted. I absolutely love her! It's been a month since I've seen her...and that is WAY too long!! I gotta make that happen soon.

Being able to practice my handstands outside! I have been practicing them a LOT lately, and I think I'm getting better.I mean, I should hope since I've been practicing these darn things for years now!

My two boys! They make me smile every day! :)

Have a great weekend!


  1. pleeease post recipe for banana protein muffins :)

    1. So simple-2 mashed bananas, about 1/2 cup egg whites, 1 scoop protein powder, cinnamon, 1 tbsp baking powder, Chocolate chips. Bake at 350 in lined muffin tin for 15-20 minutes.

  2. I have tried the S'mores bars, and they are actually kind of disappointing. They taste really fake and the texture is not like other Quest bars. Cookie dough is hands down my favorite and I can't wait to eat my (several times weekly!) bar.

    1. Oh no! Well, that's good to know! Looks likes I'll stick with my cookie dough.

  3. Quest bars are my favorite! I love the double fudge brownie too - haven't tried Smores yet. And I am so jealous of your handstands - I have been trying forever and I just can't get them!

    1. Oh, they took me forever to learn. Just practice a few minutes every day, and I'm sure you will get them eventually!
