Girls night out

I recently became a thirty one consultant and tonight a friend of mine hosted a party for me. After the party we all played bunko.
I kept my outfit casual with a green and navy blue shirt and some flare jeans. I broke out some heels for the occasion. I always feel dressed up when I wear heels and since I rarely get to wear them I love it.

Yummy healthy muffins

I bought some dried prunes but they weren't very tasty so, I thought I could turn them into something yummy by putting them into a muffin.  
I played around with this basic recipe and they turned out great.  Evelyn is eating one as I write this.  

2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup whole milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1 cup flour (half white, half wheat)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Dash of salt
Dash of nutmeg
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup chopped dried plums
1 individual container pears with the liquid (mine were packed in water)
The batter was thick but easy to put in the muffin tin

And here they are.  They turned out great!

Bake for 25 minutes at 350

Busy days

Another busy day. Soccer this morning, then out to lunch. Home for Evelyn to nap, cleaning time for mama. Then playing outside which included a walk around the neighborhood. Dinner then a much needed bath. Milk and then finally after lots of convincing, bed time.
