Special Guests

Greg's parents are coming to town! Today!  We can get uber silly sometimes. :P

This was taken last year when they visited us during the early summer.

Sharon and Russell are the sweetest future in-laws! I don't think I can ask or pray for better ones to be honest hehe!  Praise the Lord! He truly has blessed me in this area! (you know, many people dislike their in-laws)

I really have no idea what we're planning to do today, but no matter what we do, we always have fun together.  We can pretty much just sit down and have fun chit-chatting about God, life, and embarrassing moments.  Sharon is as sweet as can be, and Russell is...well....he tortures me and looks for every opportunity he gets to TRIP ME OR MAKE FUN OF ME! Yes, he's sweet.  But how terrible is that?  He always tells me to "stand up".

FYI:  I AM only 5'1-5'2".  But I'm starting to finally embrace it! :D

I've missed all of you terribly (although we've kept in touch); isn't that silly?  However, I have to keep this short and quick.  So before I forget, I'll share with you what I had this morning.

Perhaps it will send you straight to the kitchen, or the thought of it may just scare you off this blog.  :( I hope it's the former!

This is a ZUCCHINI  BANANA OATMEAL. Yes, let your eyes feast~~~! 0_o

In the mix went in:

  • 1/4 C old fashioned oats
  • 1 C almond milk
  • 1/4 C water
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon! (never can get enough)
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 mashed banana
  • 1/4 C grated zucchini (patted so it's not too liquid-y)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • couple walnut pieces
  • chia seeds
  • topped off with ONCE AGAIN CRUNCHY PB!! <--- this stuff is seriously so delicious.
  • and lastly, topped with homemade coconut butter

I really enjoyed this breakfast!  It was filling and felt like I saw eating zucchini bread in oat form. Haha.

Let me just mention one thing about Once Again Nut Butter.  You know how much I rave about this stuff.  And now, I really do it with even better reason aside from the fact that it has awesome texture and flavor!  I just found out that they support very kind causes to help people out there in need.

I mean, not only do they have organic farms growing the products, but they also aid Nicaraguan education, medical programs, as well as employment for the Nicaraguan people.  It's no wonder that I love it so much.  :D

Okay, I just wanted to share that bit with you all.

I'm off to finish some duties and to grandmother's house Sharon+Russell's hotel we go~~

Have a blessed day and stay in touch y'all! May we live like there's no tomorrow :P

My Question:  Are any guests or loved ones comin' to town?  What do you enjoy doing the most with them?

Grace & Peace,

Ellie <33
