It’s ooey, gooey, and delicious.

First off, I would like to say THANK YOU to each and every one of your for my birthday wishes on Instagram and Facebook yesterday!  I was overwhelmed with happiness and gratitude for all of the amazing friends I have.  I received so many beautiful comments and compliments that left me with a perma-smile all day long.

You know what else game me a smile?  This:

I talked about how I wanted to make Tosca’s Ooey Gooey Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Pudding and man, am I ever glad I did.  This is heavenly.  And it’s clean.  And so so easy to make.  If there was any recipe to convince you that you need The Eat Clean Diet Vegetarian Cookbook, this is it.  I’m not even saying this because I’m an ECD Ambassador and in love with Tosca.  I am saying this because this is one of the greatest things I have ever made.  You need it in your life.  Now.

Other things that made me smile:

Yes, Princeton is wearing a bow tie!  I got it from The Hydrant.  Lyndsay is amazing and has a gazillion colours and patterns to choose from.  I called her on Friday and told her I needed it by the next day.  She had it done within a few hours.  The coolest part?  The bow slips off and the collar can be worn on its own.  He looked so fancy.  And no, we weren’t matching. My top was orange, his bow was red.  The lighting just made our colours look very similar!

The only regret I have about yesterday is that I didn’t take enough pictures!!  There were 10 of us and and 95% of the pictures on my camera were of my dog or bread pudding.  No variety.  I am ashamed but I have learned my lesson.

Oh yeah, and STRIKE SUGAR is in FULL FORCE today!  Read here and here for details and jump on board!

What are your plans for the rest of the long weekend?

Do you like to bake?

    Happy Birthday!!! Princeton just seems to get more adorable, especially with a bow tie on. I’m dying from an overload of cute here. And don’t even get me started on your skirt. It’s amazing! Plus, even if you weren’t trying to match Princeton’s new accessory, you guys look great in the pictures together!
