Orange-Pineapple Bread

This is one of my favorite quick breads. It is unique because you use the ENTIRE orange in it and you don't have to use a zester! It have a wonderful citrus flavor and is moist and very delicious. I changed the original recipe to include whole wheat flour, cut the oil in half and substituted applesauce, and skipped the nuts. You can see the original recipe here. I did add 4 scoops of unflavored protein powder, since I will be having it for breakfast. I have added dried cranberries before, and that is very yummy too!

A little ADD in knitting department...

I started a new project. Before I finished my scarf. Mainly because I started a new ball of yarn on my scarf and it is way less fluffy than the previous one, even though it is the exact same yarn, and it is going to look really stupid. So why bother working on it?

Lunch Today

Insanely Easy Chicken Salad (one 5 oz. can chicken plus 1 tbsp lite southwest ranch dressing) on sandwich thins, 6 oz. baby carrots, and 1 oz. honey roasted peanuts.

Shellac Manicure

I got a shellac manicure yesterday (with a LivingSocial deal, of course!). I was very excited to try it because I never paint my nails and this stuff is supposed to look great for 2 weeks without chipping or anything! I was going to get something more neutral but the lady talked me into a classic is pretty cool!

I will post another picture in 2 weeks and see how it looks then...these pictures are from this morning.

Raspberry Greek Yogurt Popsicles

These little pops have 2 ingredients - raspberries and Greek yogurt. They are on the tart side, so you can add a little sweetener if you want. Makes 4 popsicles, only 67 calories each! I got the idea on Pinterest here; I just changed the ingredients a little bit.

3 Years Ago Today...

We were gettin' ourselves married!

I was enjoying looking at our wedding photos, so here are a few. See more here if you want.

I am excited to go out to our favorite Italian restaurant and celebrate tonight! I can't believe it has been 3 [awesome] years already, yet it also feels like a good way. I'm so glad I get to spend the rest of my life with my amazing husband! We have the best adventures together and I'm looking forward to many more :)
