Chocolate Cupcakes & Five Facts Friday!

Sometimes I don’t know what I like most about Fridays.. The fact that it’s Friday.. Or that I get to eye-oogle a delicious paleo cupcake.. Or that I get to randomly rant about five things that strike my fancy.. I know! Such a hard decision!!

Today I think I’m going to have to pick THESE delicious looking cupcakes!! I mean who doesn’t love chocolate?! Oh, you don’t? Well you’re just weird!! JUST KIDDING, please don’t leave!!! I’m just saying that chocolate is DELICIOUS and we should all head over to Health-Bent and let Brandon & Megan know that we think they’re awesome! Both them and the cupcakes!


Friday Facts!

1. Speaking of Health-Bent I just recently purchased their new cookbook and I couldn’t be happier!! It’s beautiful!! There are a few things that I love.. a) they don’t use any almond flour! I love that because that stuff is EXPENSIVE! Seriously, next time you’re in your local grocery store check it out!! Sometimes you can find a 16oz for $2 off, but then it’s still about $9!! b) there is a picture for EVERY recipe!! SO cool!! Oh, I also got Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry the other day! So happy to finally have paleo cookbooks!!

2.I finally made a real breakfast this week!! I’ve really been on the kick of just eating some almond butter with an apple.. I need to stop that because, as I’ve mentioned before, nuts make my face breakout! And breakouts are NOT fun!

3. I got my first tomato out of my garden the other day!! My boyfriend said it was delicious!! I don’t like raw tomatoes, so I tried it and thought it was gross.. BUT cooked into a dish and I could definitely see how it would be awesome!!

4. This FroYo place being close to me is getting deadly.. It’s SOOOOO delicious.. I may or may not have made my way twice this week.. and it may or may not have been in back to back nights… whoops.

Where Have I Been???

OH MY GOSH, I feel like it’s been FAR too long since I’ve talked to you wonderful people!! I must apologize for that.. I’m sorry! I’ve been here there and EVERYWHERE this past week! Moving is a HARD and LONG process! Lasted way longer than it was supposed to! So much so that I had to take an extra day off of work to do it.. BLAH!

Well, rather than bore you completely with words, I’ll show you some pictures from last week.. (Though if you following my Instagram you’ve probably already seen some of these!)

Day one moving day lunch!! Nice girl charged me for extra steak and guac instead of for the whole salad since I didn’t get any beans or rice on it!! =D

Had to go to my parents house to get the truck and trailer.. I LOVE this view.. sitting in a truck! I’m such a country girl!

Found a new FroYo place in Ferndale.. Easy Like Sundae.. Best part?? They have VEGAN FroYo which means that I can eat it and still be (half) paleo and it won’t upset my stomach.. Kind of which I wouldn’t have found this place.. I’m pretty sure I’ll be dropping a bit of money here this summer! 😉

Moving day number two.. My boyfriend is a Tetris Master! He essentially got all of the remaining stuff from my apartment into this trailer! He’s awesome!

And now the finished product.. My friend and my new place! =]
