This deserves some high kicks, don't you think?!
(Photo taken during Monday's pep rally.)
Our family is continuing down the healthy eating path, fighting against all urges to throw in the towel and buy some Chick Fil A waffle fries. I was looking for something that would be hearty and portable to keep the husband full during his long days at the school. I saw some recipes on Pinterest for egg muffin thingamabobs, so I modified them and made my own with what I had on hand. And these are the healthy version! (They don't look that pretty, but we thought they were delicious! Two thumbs way up from my eggs-and-bacon-loving husband.)
It was super simple. I sprayed the muffin pan with nonstick spray and then lined each compartment with a piece of turkey bacon (which I had pre-cooked in the microwave for about 1 minute). I filled each compartment 2/3 full with Egg Beaters egg whites, and then I cut up some ham lunch meat to toss into each muffin. I also added chopped onions and some shredded cheese on top. You bake them for 30-35 minutes until the eggs are fluffy and fully cooked.
I love creative ideas, and Mandy at Vintage Revivals is full of them! I love her latest thrifty solution, featured in her $150 room makeover. She used a brown belt she found at the thrift store, painted the other side hot pink and cut it into pieces to make unique, super fun handles for the dresser. How brilliant is that? I pinned it, of course.
There should be some decent Labor Day sales this weekend, if you have a strong urge to go shopping! Since the summer is coming to a close, now is a great time to buy outdoor furniture, hammocks, outdoor rugs, lanterns, grills, etc.
• Pottery Barn Labor Day Sale
I visited my local Pottery Barn on Wednesday and noticed they had great deals on outdoor pillows. Actually, they had tons of indoor pillows on sale. If you need some new pillows, check it out!
• West Elm sale
West Elm is offering an extra 15% off this weekend. Combine that with existing clearance prices and you could get a really good deal!
Extra 20% off at one of my favorite stores this weekend!
• World Market
World Market is having a pretty good sale on dining furniture and has tons of clearance items online.
I hope you have an AWESOME holiday weekend. We don't have any big plans– my parents are coming up tomorrow night to watch Scott's game, so we'll probably hang out with them and get some rest during the rest of the weekend. Got any big plans?
