This Week...

...I had a love affair with cherries.

...I spent too much money on cherries.

...I became obsessed with banana bread smoothies

...I realized that summer is upon us. I have frizzy hair and sweaty clothes to prove it

...oh and my freckles are slowly starting to creep on out even in minimal sun exposure. I'm ok with it because there's nothing wrong with a little sunshine.

...I realized that I leave for Las Vegas {for work} in just over a week. I’ve got the travel bug and am psyched that between work and personal vacations I get to squash the bug. Or feed the bug. I don’t really have a bug...maybe it’s a bad metaphor.

The point is, I’m excited to kick off the summer with another trip.

...I perfected my {semi-healthy} 2 minute chocolate chip peanut butter cookie cake for one. And I can’t wait to share it with you.

...we installed a custom closet system in our bedroom closet. I can’t believe it’s my closet (thanks Mom!). I kind of want to hang out in there. You know, before I fill the rest of it up. I'll show you pics when I do.

...I bought a jar of coconut oil. Now what the heck do I do with this stuff? Please send guidance.

...I also picked up Justin's Maple Almond Butter. And I'm a little obsessed already. Not so good for an $8 jar of nut butter. I was kind of hoping I'd hate it. But alas, I love the flavor and the texture. It's smooth but with a tiny crunch that feels almost like sugar crystals. Except that it's almonds. And it's good.

 ...I saw this gaggle of geese...and it made me happy :)

What did you do this week? What are you up to for the weekend? And what can I make with this gorgeous coconut oil?
