Good morning! Happy Monday and welcome to the start of a beautiful week!
I am in a fantastic mood. My Mom and I walked in the cool, humidity-free, 70 degree morning air and witnessed the most beautiful, pink and orange sunrise. Then, Ben text messaged me a picture of a million hot air balloons passing through the area (he left earlier then I did today.) See ‘em?
I HEART hot air balloons – they’re so mysterious. How does one get into hot air ballooning? How long does it take to learn how to fly one? Is it hard? Most importantly, how do I get in on that action?!
I had the chance to go on one with a friend when I was in 7th grade, and for some reason I didn’t. I’ve been kicking myself ever since. Hot air ballooning has officially made my bucket list!!
Breakfast made my lovely morning even lovelier. I had a cool & crisp Cantaloupe Bowl.
That’s 1/2 a cantaloupe, seeded and filled with this Daisy Brand Low Fat Cottage Cheese that the folks at Daisy sent me to try.
With only 4 ingredients, this cottage cheese seems like a sure bet.
It’s THICK and creamy – definitely thicker than my beloved AE Cottage Cheese, which you know I am obsessed with. Not a good thing, not a bad thing, just different! It’s a little bit tangier too, which was actually really nice when paired with the super sweet ‘loupe.
Topped with some fresh strawberries – it was good!
I’m packing more freshness with a big Kitchen Sink Salad and Peach Greek Yogurt for lunch.
In the mix:
- Mixed greens
- 1/2 cucumber
- Green onion
I was going to add dried cranberries to this baby, for some sweetness, but I plum forgot about ‘em! The Trader Joe’s Raspberry Vinaigrette from my in-laws’ care package will do the trick.
Chobani are STILL on sale – 4/$5 – at the grocery store. That might seem like an absorbent amount of money for yogurt, but trust me, it is SO worth it!
Oh, and a mini Tropical Fruit Tart Larabar for dessert.
This bar explodes with flavahhhh.
Time to get this party started – have a wonderful day, and start to your week!
What are some of the things on your bucket list? Have you been able to cross any of them off yet?
I really want to go hang gliding. Like, really, really bad. Someday!!
