Instead of making 9 like Kelsey did, we made 12! 🙂

 Holey Canoli, this girl can bake! Everyone loved them, and they made the perfect breakfast.

 Make them, if you have not yet. We highly recommend this recipe. And if you want an even bigger muffin, there is always the option to make 9 like her.

 And for Jessica’s Luna Movement we did a little Luna lovin’ for snack time at school. teehehe! Blueberry bliss is like a struesel topped blueberry muffin.

Court wanted the same flava… 

 And the happy girls were off to school!

We were busy bees in every class, and wouldn’t ya know, TIME FLEW BY! Before we knew it, we were at home watching America’s Next Top Model while making Lunch.

And to round off this evening all of us girls went and got registered for Race for the Cure. Dinner involved a little savory and sweet. An egg sammie, and sweet tatar did the trick! 

 Have a great night ladies and gents. I don’t know about you, but I gotta go hurry up and finish my math HW, before 90210 comes on. And then Court and I are having a Dawson’s Creek marathon. Here’s to a less stress week! Who’s with me? lol
