..Pumpkin Love..

There is a new shake in season folks.. 

Its SOOO good you guys, I don't think I'll ever get sick of it! I love pumpkin.. and after my pumpkin oats today and the beautiful rain we got today I had to go for a pumpkin shake! It totally sets you in the fall mood ;)
the iphone does not do it justice.. its really a beautiful thing :)

I even sprinkled a little of granola on top just for kicks! 
almond milk
1/2 cup of Libby's pumpkin (or as much or less as you want)

1 scoop of Elite Vanilla protein 
Cinnamon ( I love cinnamon so I use lots)
like 1/2 tsp of nutmeg (its powerful so don't over do it k loves)
1/2 banana
1 tsp of xanthan gum

Try this for sure sometime this season. If you love pumpkin this will just top the list. Its like dessert, I wanted to make another one right after.. so I guess you know what I'm having post workout tomorrow.. :)

Tonight was my best friends wedding dinner. It was beautiful and I'am SO excited for to get married tomorrow to the man she loves!! Something about weddings just makes you smile and it is a good reminder of  your own wedding day and how perfect that moment was when you said "yes". or "I do". We had some delicious grub. The meal started with a spinach salad with cranberries, bacon and some feta love.
I picked out the bacon and most of the cranberries. 

Then dinner was served.. again the iphone takes crappy pics but it was chicken with some veggies! I scraped of as much of the sauce as possible to avoid extra calories.
It was a great dinner and now I'm just home, babes in bed and I have to get to packin' cause as much as I love the fall. We are headed to Lake Mead.. Back to Summer!! I think the high will be 103. on friday. Woot Woot (wave your hands in the air)..
Tomorrow, I may not blog, or I just might. Its an absolute CRAZY day.. with the wedding, packing, cleaning and such. so hopefully I get a chance.. If not I'll be fully enjoying my vaca for the next 4 days.
loves ♥
