Katie at Healthy Diva Life has been doing Marvelous In My Mondays for quite some time now, and this week I decided to participate. Naturally I wanted to partake in a fun way to make Mondays more fun and this is such a positive way to do it. I’m also linking up with Amanda’s Thinking Out Loud over on her blog, Running with Spoons and Heather’s Friday Favorites over on her blog, Housewife Glamour. Thanks for providing the great link-up parties, ladies!
Plus, I have an awesome easy recipe to share with you guys tomorrow with a sneak peak at the end of this post. Get excited!
Free art classes at Crystal Bridges Museum
A couple weeks ago, I randomly stumbled upon the calender on the Crystal Bridges Museum website that lists all the classes they offer through the month. Crystal Bridges is a pretty famous, up-and-coming local art museum in Northwest Arkansas.
While searching through the classes on the calender, one in particular stood out to me: Wooden-puzzle board painting. I LOVE jigsaw puzzles. So when I saw this free class, I didn’t know many details but my mother and I happened to have some spare time on the Sunday they were offering the class so we thought, “Hey, why not check it out?”. So glad we did!
Check out our wooden puzzle board art creations we each painted. Mine is on the top, my mother’s is the flower. Yes, it might have been a class actually designed for elementary school-aged children, but it was FREE FUN and we both enjoyed it.
I have been dying to try these wonderful creations for quite some time. They lived up to my expectations. The sea salt flavor hits your tongue first and then you’re introduced to the savory sweetness of the sweet potato flavor. Magic in a Triscuit. Check ’em out.
No more Bae!!!
This word is often used as a term of endearment from one loving partner to another. I have NEVER liked this word ever since I first heard it and have known of it’s existence. I find it to be annoying and not at all endearing or sweet. Now I have another reason to back up my dislike.
Guardians of the Galaxy
I HIGHLY recommend you go check this movie out at your nearest theater if you haven’t already. Usually I’m not a huge fan of the “superhero” genre of movies, but this one blew me away. My favorite part?…It had many hilairous moments that had me laughing out loud. Then I recently found this picture that references Guardians of the Galaxy and the classic children’s book, The Giving Tree. If you get this joke, you’re awesome.
Peppermint Chocolate Chip Protein Pie
I’ve been needing to experiment with my new Skoop protein powder and finally found the perfect way to do it: add it to a pie! Okay, maybe I was just looking for an excuse to make a pie–my favorite dessert. Either way, THIS pie is a great experiment and I can’t wait to share the recipe with you guys tomorrow. It’s easy to make, refreshing, tasty, AND you better believe it’s healthy too.
I need some more good cracker and chip recommendations!
I love trying new foods, so tell me what you like!
