My Current Obsessions: July Edition


... Martha Stewart's Homekeeping Handbook...This book is filled from beginning to end with awesome tips on how to keep up your house. This is especially important for me because often times I feel like even if I take one day off things begin to pile up. Every page has very helpful ideas and suggestions for basic to in depth cleaning and upkeep. I try to do a little bit each night.

...yummy Coconut Macaroons....what a sweet summertime treat!!! I used this recipe, also seen here. Notice there are some missing... (I couldn't help myself)

... a beautiful summer bouquet from my hubby... They remind me of fuzzy sweet peaches...

...exploring Cincinnati's Fabulous Findlay Market with my boys (all 3) ...I love buying fresh fruit and vegetables from all the local farmers. I take them home and make yummy things like...


...sweet mango banana smoothies..(with added flax seed oil, for me)... I use two ripe bananas, 3/4 cup of frozen pineapple, tablespoon of honey, 1. 5 cups of almond milk, and a handful of ice... the boys love it and it is so healthy and cool during these dog days of summer...

Last but not least momma's babies...

... the boys wrestling, Roman is quite the "muscle" He likes to let his BIG brother know who is boss...
