Memorial Day Weekend

{a preview of what’s coming}

I’ve been looking forward to this weekend for a while now. 2012 has been a busy year for us and it has completely flown by.  So today we’re taking off for the weekend in hopes to return on Monday with recharged batteries.  I can’t believe that tomorrow is already our six month wedding anniversary!

Wishing everyone a fun and relaxing weekend. I look forward to sharing photos of our trip next week. x

PS.  This time in 2011, 2010 and 2009.

Musical Mondays

The xx‘s 2009 debut album “xx” is awesome from start to finish.  It’s definitely become an all time favorite of mine. I can listen to it on repeat and never have to skip a song.

Keep an eye out for the release of their new album, which should be coming out anytime now.

These songs are a great way to kick off the week.  I find them to be equal parts soothing and upbeat.  Thanks Allie for introducing me to Pupkulies & Rebecca.

Chocolate Banana Muffins

{chocolate + chocolate chips + banana + walnuts}

My mom has been visiting and she bought about 20 bananas last week. I knew for sure that some would become overly ripe before we got around to eating them.  In preparation for this, I searched on pinterest for a chocolate banana muffin recipe (or else I would make this again).

This recipe was a total hit. I had all the ingredients at home, which is always a plus, and the whole wheat flour & applesauce substitutions definitely minimize the guilt (without sacrificing the taste).

I only made 2 variations to the original recipe: I added chopped walnuts to the mix along with the chocolate chips and used kosher salt instead of regular, which really brought out the flavors.
