Tahoe to Kansas, and BABIES oh my!

Wow this week has been a whirlwind! I moved out of my current place, filling up a storage unit in Nevada and preparing for my trip back to Kansas. Tuesday was my last day in Tahoe so I enjoyed it the best way I know how. I had a peaceful breakfast on the beach.

Checked out a new-to-me Farmers Market.

And said goodbye to friends.

Wednesday was a full day of traveling. My bestie picked me up at the airport around 10pm and we stayed up late catching up on life.

Thursday, my sister had a baby boy!! I made it to town just in time.

Yesterday, was full of baby holding, errands, and 3 home showings. (I'm in search of new renters. Fingers crossed I find the right fit.)

And lookie there, the week isn't even over yet. I better get out there and do something. haha

Media Monday - Social D

This weekend, I had the pleasure of meeting and hanging out with some local artists at the Outdoor Arts and Crafts Show. One lady in particular, took me under her wing and I am so grateful she did. She is such a hoot!
At one point, we were talking about music. Now keep in mind, she is 78 years old and quite ornery. She tells me her favorite kind of music is punk rock. haha. Yeah, right! "Yeah, Social Distortion is my all time favorite band." The fact that she even knew who Social Distortion was, was proof enough that she was serious.

In honor of my newest friend.

Although I did choose some of the more mellow songs, there might be some F bombs sprinkled in there.

the Sunday Special - Blueberry Bran Pancakes/Crepes

I took a little break from my usual breakfast of grapefruit and a green smoothie to try something new.

I changed up a pancake recipe and came up with this yummy healthier version.

Blueberry Bran Pancakes

1 cup Toasted Oat Bran
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 Egg
1 cup Coconut Milk 
1/2 cup Blueberry Greek Yogurt
Fresh Blueberries

Sift together dry ingredients in one bowl. Fork beat egg, milk, and yogurt in another bowl. Combine the 2 bowls' ingredients. Pour onto a coconut oil greased griddle, placing fresh blueberries in the uncooked side. Turn once. 

I also tried using half coconut milk and half water. I'm not sure what else could have caused the difference, but that time they came out super thin like crepes, and just as yummy.
