Can we talk about a few things?

I bought new sneakers. Yay! Not that it was easy to find a reasonable pair because 9/10 sneakers are glow in the dark neon. Totally not okay. But, I’ve yet to try them out for real because I wanted to make sure my feet had healed totally first. Fingers crossed these do the trick! I’m kind of having a Goldilocks moment in my head – not too roomy, not too tight, just right…

Why do we have to wait till October 3 for the start of Scandal?! Torture. Maybe I’ll get some reading in between now and then. It was clearly a time sucker so far, and for good reason. I couldn’t stop myself. It was too good not to fly through. If you’ve seen it, you know what I mean. But now we have to wait.

Have you read any good books lately? I started Dan Brown’s latest book in May and haven’t finished it because… life! Traveling = the perfect time to read. Only on one leg of my trip, the only thing reading made me too was fall asleep. I swear it wasn’t the books fault at all. It’s good. Maybe I should cut this short and go read so I can move on to a new book. So send your recommendations my way! I’m sure I’ll get to one in the next few months ha ;)

I made these muffins for the Mr a few weeks back. It was a last minute request on his part that I make muffins for a ride he was going on. I really shouldn’t have stressed and tried whipping up something new but I just had that need. It was the perfect opportunity to create another new recipe. I’m always finding excuses for that.

I had bananas and chocolate, so recreating this amazing banana chocolate marble loaf seemed absolutely perfect. These aren’t your typical muffins, a little on the dense side but totally full of flavor and super moist. Plus, they puff up beautifully! Who could resist a perfectly domed muffin?

Whip up a batch of these to grab a tasty breakfast or snack on the go!
