1 year Anniversary

7 Sep

 It’s Official!

Whit and I have been blogging for exactly one year. Our blogs birthday was actually yesterday but we did not even realize it until after we had already posted. Here’s our very first post, if you have never read it. It is pretty crappy if you want my opinion. Also most of the pictures from our first few posts got deleted when we added more space on to our blog. We started our by making our posts look like this. Whit and I always Cristin’s blog Eat Like Me from SELF.com so we kind of did the same layout as her for a while. Any ways looking back at the past year, our blog and our lives have come a long way.

Some important events that are documented on this blog is:

  • starting our junior year
  • getting a job at Chick-fil-a and then quitting and going to Einstein Bro’s with Whit
  • getting our licences
  • 17th birthday
  • finding out that we are going to be aunts
  • becoming an early morning work out person
  • creating so many delicious recipes
  • getting interviewed for The Weekly Reader
  • having the opportunity to be in high school and college at the same time
  • reviewing some amazing products

This first year has been quite an adventure. Thank you to all of our readers and all of your wonderful comments. Everytime I get a comment, it puts a smile on my face. You all are amazing. 🙂

 With that said we celebrated this morning with some birthday oats!

 It felt like Fall air when we woke up, so instantly I whipped out a can of pumpkin for our oats 😛

  •  1/3 cup oats
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 3 tbs. pumpkin puree
  • 2 tbs. fresh brewed coffee
  • 1/2 tbs. SF instant Butterscotch pudding mix
  • 1 tsp. flax, chia
  • pumpkin pie spice/ cinnamon

While cooking stir in 1/2 a sweetener packet and some maple extract. Then top off with yogurt, pb, and a sliver of zucchini bread!

Here’s to a great year!

 Oh and here’s a preview of C+W’s steamers which you will be seeing a lot more of in the next few chilly months!

 Since today is an “A” day we did not have school, and it has been an extra long weekend. After breakfast we laced up our shoes, and headed outside for a nice cool run on the trails around the neighborhood. It was in the 60’s, and felt awesome. We ended up doing a 25 min run that included sprints, stairs, jogging, etc. It was Fun! Then, when we got home we did some ab work and weight lifting.

 The kitchen was a mess, so we cleaned it up, and lit this yummy smelling candle. How cozy! 🙂

 Lunch today was a Jumbo Veggie packed salad, with half a Volcanic Chocolate Banana Bora Bora bar, and a Pluot. We have been so addicted to Plouts lately. They are amazing! If you have not tried them yet, you must.

 Here is the last out of our stash of Bora Bora bars.

 It was good of course, but did not really taste like chocolate banana. Court thought it tasted more like German Chocolate Cake. lol. We both agree they should change the flavor name.

Here’s a close up of all those veggies. The egg-whites and humus really make the salad! 

It’s time to go Chillax. I am thinking a warm bath and maybe watching some Gilmore Girls. Today it is a good day, because it is pay day $$$.

QOD: We are in the Fall mood today, so we want to know what you are looking forward to most in this upcoming holiday season?


P.S. Be sure to head on over to Chocolate Covered’s Katie’s blog because she is having an awesome lara bar giveaway!

    Happy Blog Birthday! 🙂

    Wow, those oats look super deelish. I’m definitely going to have to get some pumpkin.

    What is a plout? Fruit? Vegetable? What does it taste like? Looks good!


    I’m looking forward to football games the most! I’m in marching band, and the Friday night football games are always the best part of fall for me. And homecoming! And leaves! Fall is definitely my favorite season.

    Happy blog birthday! My gosh, does time fly. I feel like going back in time and reading all you guys’ posts again… You’re awesome bloggers 🙂 I’m looking forward to fall food and of course, fall temperatures. It’s just TOO hot in the summer, and fall is a lot cosier. Mmm, that candle sounds so lovely.

    I’m looking forwards to finally wearing boots again (maybe even rocking the denim mini w/ boots?). Pumpkin flavor and scented EVERYTHING. Drinking hot cocoa while watching our football team play. And fall homecoming 🙂

    This is kind of late but Happy Belated Blogversary! My blogversary is coming up in a few months (December) and I can’t wait. 😀

    I’ve never tried those Bora Bora bars but anything that tastes like German Chocolate Cake sounds right up my alley.

    Eek, congratulations, girls!! That is so beyond exciting. I can’t wait to get to my one-year mark. 🙂 Haha too funny, that chocolate volcano banana bar is about the last of my Bora Bora stash, too. 😛

    […] It was SO good…but in a way different than what I thought…I was thinking a chocolate covered banana flavor was going to be a result of the title, but the flavor had a bit of a cake or pie taste?  I’m not sure how to describe it.  Maybe like a German Chocolate Banana cake?  Court & Whit thought so too!
