Happy Friday, y’all! All week long my newsfeed has been EXPLODING with pics of the new unicorn frappuccino at Starbucks. Haven’t seen it? Oh, Imma show you:

Looks magical, right? Not so magical? The nutrition facts:

Yeah. So, if you still want your unicorn fix but without the sugar coma, I’ve got what you need!

 

Instead of the sugar-splosion, have some low fat ice cream and sprinkle on chocolate shaving with this!

This adorable little sprinkle shaker is from Firebox and, BONUS, it’s less than $10! Woot!

 

Chillax this weekend in a nice, hot bubble bath filled with this amazing concoction from Etsy store Two Wild Hares:

This bath bomb dust, Unicorn Kisses, is a magical blend of citruses, a trio of berries, juicy mango and grape! Ahhh, smells like whimsy and relaxation!

Try It Tuesday

Even though its been chilly outside, I have been craving cold drinks: snowcones, Boba tea, and frappuccinos. But, Starbucks is super-crazy expensive (and fattening) so I searched the Pinterest-sphere and found a recipe for frappuccinos that won’t bust your wallet or your belt!

original

 

 

Here’s what you need:

~2 tbsp coffee instant granules

~2 tbsp coffee creamer

~1/2 cup milk

~8-10 ice cubes

~Splenda (or your favorite low-cal sweetener) to taste

 

All you need to do is blend everything together:

And serve:

It was pretty good! I don’t think I needed tablespoons of coffee granules, though. The coffee taste was like a roundhouse kick to the taste buds. Next time, I’ll probably use 1-1 1/2 tablespoons of coffee (and actually remember to add Splenda). I’d REALLY like to get some Peppermint Mocha creamer and add some crushed peppermint to the top! Mmm….

(Also, the entire recipe was only 75 calories! What a deal!)

 

Fall Bucket List

The weather is cooling down, football season has started, and my Pinterest news feed is jam-packed with pumpkin-flavored goodies. That can mean only one thing: fall is here. Now that autumn is upon us, I’ve been thinking about all the things I want to do now that the days are getting shorter and fashion calls for hoodies instead of flip flops.

I give you: my fall bucket list.

#5: FINALLY make this apple cider that I pinned almost two years ago and have yet to try: 

Allegedly this is supposed to rival Starbucks...

Allegedly this is supposed to rival Starbucks…

I’ve had this pinned for a looong time and I have yet to try it. I love apple cider, but I typically just buy the packets. And even though they smell great, the granules don’t always mix well and you’re left with cider that has the consistency of sand. So this is a must try this fall!

 

#4: Watch an entire OU game

When I worked at a local radio station, I produced the OU football games. So every Saturday that there was a home game, I was manning the booth while Bob Barry Sr. did the pay-by-play. I’d also watch each and every game. So far this season, only like one game has been broadcast on a channel that Huff the Hubs and I actually have. I watched a little bit of that game, but not the whole thing. I’m determined to actually watch one from start to finish this season! Its hard to call yourself a fan if you don’t watch the games!

 

#3: Make a nerdy costume for Hermione’s first Halloween.

Pinterest has made my excitement for Hermione’s first Halloween sky rocket. Everyday I see more and more awesomely geektastic costumes for my little nerdling. I’ve already got an idea for what I want her to be, but there are just so many cute ideas! I need to start working on it. I’m starting to learn that having a baby equals not a lot of time to do other things. 

 

#2: Take Hermione to a pumpkin patch.

Gobs of gourds!

There’s a nearby farm called the Orr Family Farm. It is ADORABLE. I’ve been wanting to go for a long time, but I’ve just never had the chance. In May of this year, the F5 tornado that ravaged Moore also tore up most of the Orr Family Farm. I was so sad; I didn’t think they’d ever be back in business by the fall and their annual Pumpkin Patch. But thankfully, they’ve reopened just in time for Halloween! I cannot wait to take Hermione and get some pumpkins for my little pumpkin!

 

#1: Run more. 

Basically.

Basically.

I hate running in the summer. Its hot, its humid, and if you don’t go at the butt crack of dawn, you’ll die from heat exhaustion. My favorite time of year to run is the fall. You can basically lace up your shoes and go at any time of day and its PERFECT. And seeing as how I still have 10lbs left to lose before I’m at pre-baby weight AND I’m going to need to start training for the full marathon in April. I’m ready to hit the pavement!
