Fairy Fight Club

Where to start, where to start??? How bout yesterdays brekkie? The day before I picked up this cool find at the grocery store...
A banana Mango. Mmm, after my 5 am Y workout I knew it would be perfect addition to my fresh fruit cereal...

  • banana
  • apple
  • banana mango
  • almond milk
  • NuStevia (after pic)
  • cinnamon (after pic)
I just quickly want to say that the NuStevia White Stevia Powder is the best Stevia Powder I have had. When I first started using stevia it was in powdered form but it always kinda gave a funk taste afterward. Then liquid stevia came around and I never turned back, until now and this stuff is great!! I love sprinkling it on my fresh fruit cereals.

After brekkie, cleaning up, making the mans lunch, and showering the little one and myself, we got ready for the little ones "Princess/Fairy Party" at the local Barnes and Noble. She looked so sweet...
Queen and Princess...
With her Fairy friend and her Fairy friends Knight brother...
Man that party was outta control!! A word to the organizer, 30 children + 5 balloons = 25 mad kids, one of them being mine. Yes, her and another fairy engaged in a 5 min. tug of war with a balloon that refused to pop. Is it wrong that all I could do was laugh while the 2 fairies almost ripped each others wings off? The other mom wasn't to happy. Sorry lady, I found it rather entertaining :)

After lots of screaming kids, free vanilla wafers covered in frosting and M&M's, free Starbucks "fruit" smoothies, a scavenger hunt and 2 craft projects, I was ready to get the hell outta there. The bookstore was left in shambles. I feel for those employees on the real!!! Lunch was just what I needed..
Salad containing....
  • romaine
  • mushrooms
  • red pepper
  • broccoli
  • carrots
  • summer squash
  • avo
and the last on my 15lb butternut squash in fry form :(

Later in the day I snacked on a few carrots with ab. Wasn't very hungry for dinner but made some anyway...
Its really not worth talking about except for the fact this was my first time using Nori...
The combo must have been off. I emptied out the insides on to my salad and tossed the Nori. Blehhhh!! To fishy tasting for what I put inside. What do you all put in your Nori?

Later I had some frozen chocolate milk. Hit the spot :)

I have worked out everyday except Sunday for the last 2 weeks and also done this whole raw/food combining detox to prepare for my husbands high school reunion tonight. I skipped the gym this morning (along with the next 2 day) and I think it was much deserved :). Woke up and had the usual...

  • extra juicy plum
  • peach
  • banana
  • grilled pineapple (leftovers)
  • almond milk
  • cinnamon (after pic)
  • NuStevia (after pic)
Since then I have also eaten part of an apple :). I have a busy day ahead of me. Got my pedi last night, hair appointment today at 2:00, headed for dinner around 4, happy hour from 6 to 7, reunion from 7 to 11 and then the real party starts :)!!!!

Hope everyone has an awesome and safe Friday night!!! Check back soon for reunion pics!

CONFESSION OF THE DAY: I am kinda excited to meet some of the mans exes tonight at his reunion :0. Cant wait to get a look at them!!


  1. Ha! I would totally eat up the opportunity to meet Matt's exes. I hope you have fun ;)
    Your little one is so adorable as alwalys!

  2. Aww, what a beautiful little fairy princess!!

  3. That party sounds like so much fun (well, minus the 25 angry kids) - I love the costumes!

    Have a blast at the reunion!! Enjoy getting pampered too :D

  4. why can't my kids look in the camera already? meh... and gotta love the off the shoulder look my little fairy is sporting...
    so have fun tonight showing those X b*ches what hot looks like!hehe..

  5. LOL okay, I can only imagine the tug of war... stinking hilarious!

    Your angel looked adorable!! Are those Kim's kiddos with her?

    Banana mango?? I have NEVER heard of that before! What does it taste like? More like a banana?

    Have fun tonight girl! You've worked hard as heck... enjoy it!

  6. have so much fun at the reunion...i can't wait to see how fab you look!

    p.s. love the princess party - i want to go!

  7. Ummm girl you're gorgeous. I'm sure they will be completely jealous!

  8. WOO HOO seeing ex's and pretending like you don't care is the BEST. They are gonna drop their jaws when they get a load of you. ;)

  9. Banana mango? THAT SOUNDS AWESOMEE!

    Ooo this reunion sounds juicy! I hope you have a wonderful time. Now all his exes get to see his stunning wife, and all his high school buddies will be jealous bhahaha ;)

    Let's see.. I like to stuff my nori with rice but since you've been doing the lo-carb thing, I saw on another blog that they used cauliflower instead. I bet if you made a sort of delicious cauliflower mash it would be delicious! If you do that, let me know how it turns out because now I'm curious to try it hehehe.

    You and your daughter look so much alike.. uncanny really.

    p.s. definitely try the roasted chickpeas. There's also this recipe that I've tried before and it's amazing:


  10. Have you lost the weight that you wanted too???? did the detox work????

  11. i swear sometimes kids evets are so terribly put together. you can tell the organizers do NOT have children. lol. so how has this last 2 weeks treated you? do you see a difference/ om-goodness, it'll be too fun at that reunion. did he have a lot of exes? lol

  12. banana mango? that sounds like my idea of heaven!

    i would've been all over that princess fairy party as a kid. :)

  13. I’ve been hearing great stuff about Nustevia everywhere—I will definitely purchase that after I’m done with my funky stevia :P

    Awww, the princess is adorable and the queen is gorgeous!

    I grew up with nori so I honestly love everything with it. For those who aren’t used to it, maybe try seasoned sushi rice and cucumbers?

    Have fun at the reunion

  14. Well, those exe's are gonna eat their hearts out at how fit and healthy you are!

    Your little princess is a cutie patootie!!

  15. I know you'll blow away any ex'es you meet!

    I've never seen a banana-mango. Very cool!

    And I am really intriged that this stevia you're using does not have a funky aftertaste. I use Jay Robb's protein powder and I have actually gotten used to the taste, but I never used to be a stevia fan, at all. The dark stevia sounds awesome, too.

  16. I went to my own 5 year HS reunion a few weeks back. But, Mallard's HS begins with a 10 year. So, we have a another year until then. I have seen both (yes only 2 serious relationships!) of his exes. One was just okay. Though he had the sam girlfriend from his freshman year of HS through his freshman year of college and she was very easy on the eyes. I suppose that means he has decent taste ;)

  17. Ok, I don't know what to think about that banana mango! How does it taste? And, what is the texture like? Smooshie?

  18. how did the reunion go???? i hope it went well im sure there were a lot of jealous exe's around!! ahah
