Ok – nevermind what I said last night about the weather being the cause of my exercise slump (but keep your tips coming!), because my bike ride was sooooo perfect! It was the perfect temp, the perfect amount of sun peeking through the clouds, the perfect amount of bugs slamming into my face…ok not that last part – but seriously, it was SUCH a great bike ride and made for a perfect summer evening 🙂
Bennett School was one of the last one-room schoolhouses built in the West Des Moines area in 1926 or ‘27. It has been restored as closely as possible to its former appearance as remembered by Walter Fuller, Pete Johnson, and Lincoln Bennett (all students there) and by Dorothy Temple Mosher, a former teacher at the Bennett School .
Ugh, isn’t that cool?? I just absolutely love stuff like this. Little House on the Prairie used to be one of my favorite shows…yes, I’m a giant nerd.
Anyways this morning I needed something cool to combat the heat that was raging inside my house!! So, I made a repeater of Monday’s smoothie, with some slight modifications.
This morning’s smoothie had:
- 2 frozen bananas (two!!)
- 1 cup skim milk
- 1 T Simply JIF
- dash of cinnamon
This was incredible – bananas + PB = the perfect combo!!
And smoothies keep me really full anyways – I think due to the air + gulping – so with two bananas in this baby, I’m sure I’ll be full forevs!
For lunch I packed a fruit extravaganza!!! Including:
1 Braeburn apple:
2 fuzzy kiwis…minus the fuzz 🙂
Do you eat the fuzz? I saw recently that Meghann does…so does my husband. I just don’t think I can bring myself to do it!
Not fruit – but equally as good – some almonds 🙂
This is my perfect lunch combo – snacky items that I can graze on throughout the afternoon. Yes!
So, my brother and sister-in-law will be 7 months pregnant in one week! The weekly update I got yesterday said the baby is capable of hiccupping now…isn’t that crazy?!?! They aren’t finding out what the sex of the baby is until it’s born and they’re keeping their name ideas a mystery too (they don’t want anyone to judge them!!)
Do you have your future children’s names picked out (if you want children)? If you already have children, what are their names?
I love the name Gwendolyn and Alice (Ben’s Grandma and my Grandma’s name) for girls and the name Macalla (my Mom’s maiden name) – we’d call him Mac – for a boy…I love traditional names!!
