Happy Monday! Today I am linking up with Becky at Choose Happy for her Currently post.
Loving... I joined a new group of Local photographers. I am loving their encouragement and their talent. It is so fun to be a part of a group of moms that have the same interest.
Thankful... A few minutes to catch up on blogging. My little one keeps me so busy.
Counting down... To the summer. I am so ready for it to be summer. We are hopefully taking a vacation this year!
Organizing... Our house and garage. We have lived in our house for almost two years and I finally am ready to decorate. My dad told my husband he could have his pool table. My husband is so excited so he is making space for it in the garage.
Watching... I am letting Netflix run in the background while I blog. I have been watching Rules of engagement.
Celebrating.... We celebrated our first Valentines day with our little man. My husband is not a huge fan of valentines day but we did have fun with the little one this year.
Eating... Tacos. I love when my husband doesn't have to go into work too early because he makes or buys us breakfast.
I am always trying to find new ways to sneak vegetables in my foods without tasting them. I was so excited to try Popeye muffins from the green fork My son loves everything so I decided to give these spinach muffins a try.
They are amazing and you wouldn't even know they have a whole bag of spinach. I'm very much like a kid the color is more enticing to me.
My body is excited with the extra nutrients.

Serves: 16 muffins
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole-wheat flour
¾ cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
1½ tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp salt
¼ cup canola oil
¾ cup milk
1 (6 ounce) bag fresh baby spinach
½ cup mashed banana (from about 1 to 2 bananas)
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350°F and line two 12-cup muffin pans with paper liners.
Whisk together dry ingredients in a large bowl: flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
In a blender, place oil, milk, and spinach. Blend on high for about 30 seconds or until completely puréed. Add banana and vanilla; blend on low just to mix.
Pour puréed mixture into dry mixture and fold together with a rubber spatula until completely combined.
Fill muffin cups about ⅔ full and bake 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Interest has its way of making me feel like the worst mom, wife and cook all within 5 minutes of browsing. I am a Pinterest addict. That does not mean I ever try to recreate but I just pin and wish I had the time. I browse through the cooking section and tell myself "wouldn't that be amazing for dinner?" I then proceed to make spaghetti. (our go to meal)
I find myself looking in the kid section more than the women's fashion section because lets face it as a mom my kid comes before my lack of style.
I am not a huge valentines day enthusiast. I am not like my parents crazy neighbors that have inflatable hearts in their front yard. For one I did not even know the sold those?!
I am however all for looking Pinterest for valentines ideas for my little man. He was invited to a valentines party with his baby friends. I was so excited to find an easy healthier option for the little valentines.
Aren't these just the cutest? What is one thing you have recreated inspired by Pinterest? I may have to attempt it or at least repin it :)
