Those moments.

You know those moments when life is better than your dreams? When you've imagined something over and over again in your head and that something finally comes true? 
And it's even better in real life?  

I live for those moments. I love those moments.

Product Review: Evolution of Smooth

EOS Lip Balm

My friend recently gifted me one of these little bundles of pure lip joy and I instantly fell in love. This lip balm comes is the awesomest of packaging (I'm sure you noticed the spherical shape) and is 95 percent organic. Don't ask me about the other five...

This lip balm makes my lips feel yummy, it smells great and I look super cool putting it on. :) 

You can check out all the flavors at Evolution of Smooth and buy your EOS lip balm at Target, Walgreens or Riteaid.

Great Fall Recipe: Butternut Squash Blondies

Do you ever buy something that you don't need just because it's really pretty? Well, I'll admit, I do. I own a blue and green strainer that rarely gets any use for that very reason. Recently, I fell in love with a lovely little ruffle apron and I had to have it. Thing is, I'm not much of a cook. So there wasn't much of a reason to buy it. This recipe was my first attempt at baking anything successfully (with the help of some trusted friends and mother, of course). I think the apron did wonders for my baking ability. 
Looks kind of like this one minus the top
But this isn't about the apron, it's about the brownies. And, dang, were they good. Seriously, I was a little skeptical at first, butternut squash in a brownie? But they ended up being super yummy. The squash makes the brownie deliciously moist and not too sweet. 

Here is the recipe for these delicious Blondies from

Makes 2 dozen
Grated butternut squash and fresh nutmeg add earthy notes to these addictive sweets. To grate the squash, use a box grater or food processor. Make up to two days ahead, and cut them just before serving.
4 tablespoons melted butter, plus more for the pan
1 1/2 cups peeled and grated butternut squash 

1 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 cup 365 Everyday Value White Chocolate Chunks 

1 teaspoon baking powder 

1 1/2 teaspoons grated nutmeg 

1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt 
1 cup light brown sugar 

2 eggs

1 tablespoon 365 Everyday Value Organic Vanilla Extract
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan with butter; set aside. In a medium bowl, toss together squash, flour, chocolate, baking powder, nutmeg and salt. In a large bowl, whisk sugar and eggs together until pale and thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in butter and vanilla, then add flour mixture and stir together just until combined. Transfer to prepared pan and bake until just set in the middle and golden brown around the edges, about 30 minutes. Set aside to let cool, then cut into 24 squares and serve.
All of our delicious goodies!
Let me know if you make them and how it goes!
