Apple Pie & Stacks for Breakfast


I’m kind of a blogging mess right now. I have so many things going on, so little time and all my thoughts are discombobulated. I drove around looking for a coffee shop today and I had to drive fifteen miles. I started checking emails and then decided to get started on blogging about my chicken noodle soup. I opened my backpack to grab my camera and realized I left all memory cards in my camera bag. Now I’m left here with a computer, a coffee, a notebook, and no pictures of chicken noodle soup to blog about. I’m going to have to try it again Wednesday when the internet man gets out to the house.

Now I can’t just leave my blog without posting something, so I’m taking advantage of this time and blogging some recaps and then working on my next blogging how to post. I hope that’s ok! Luckily our mountain trip was canceled over the weekend because of the weather and so I got some things done.

I have two apple pie recipes on my blog, a healthy one and a delicious unhealthy one. The one above is the delicious unhealthy one. There is something so therapeutic making pies. The crust is art, it takes thought, and it’s a craft you want to keep getting better at. I can’t wait until the farmer’s markets open so I can get some fresh peaches and blueberries to make different pies!




After church, I went to breakfast with my boyfriend and his family. I ordered the egg white garden omelet at a new little breakfast place. I also had a side of wheat toast.


After breakfast, we headed over to the outlets to shop! I had to buy new clothes for my trip, new shoes, and a couple new swimsuits. I can’t wait to show you guys what I bought. I went into a couple of boutiques and found adorable resort dresses. We spent about 4 hours shopping and then we went to get coffee at Starbucks on our way out. I got a skinny latte with extra shots of espresso and a little snack because I was starvin’. I had the fruit and nut blend. I love the little dried blueberries in the mix! I have to make some of these little trail mix blends for my Fit Trip to the Dominican.


I got back around seven and I just whipped up a quick piece of chicken and salad. I did some laundry and then made a plate of strawberries and red wine to watch the Oscars! Did you guys watch the Oscars last night? I thought it was a great show, the dresses were beautiful and Lady Gaga killed the stage. I’ve always liked her, but last night I fell in love! When she was being interviewed on the red carpet, she told the girl interviewing her how beautiful she was. I thought that was really nice of her. She’s just an amazing person with a beautiful soul.


And I know this seems silly, but I just had to blog about this! I have a new favorite breakfast, cashew milk and chocolate fiber one cereal! The cereal tastes like cocoa puffs and the cashew milk taste like real milk! I had this for breakfast this morning and I literally can’t wait to have it again when I get back.

I have some more things to go buy today, and then I’m going to start packing tomorrow! The Bachelor is on tonight and I can’t wait to watch it!

I promise to have that soup posted sometime soon!

    Sorry to hear about some of the experiences you’ve had in the past, Taralynn, that’s really awful 🙁
    Congrats on the beautiful new home, though–love the pool!!
    I have to try the cashew milk! I usually use almond milk in my morning smoothie, so this sounds like a great alternative.
    I’m guessing y’all are getting this wintry weather we have in ATL, be safe out there!

    Congrats on the new home! I know moving can be a lot of stress and work, so well done on keeping up with everything! You are a big inspiration to me and a great example for independent women! I am really sorry that some people take advantage of that and stalk you. That’s just so wrong!

    Hope you enjoy your new home!

    PS: What a cute photo of Grumples! Makes me really want to cuddle him!! 😉

    LOL The banana man is from the Banana Bar Crawl! I saw a bunch of them at Fitzgeralds and all over the Epicentre on Saturday, for 15 bucks they give you admission to like 8 bars or so as well as that banana suit. It was quite a sight to see!
