Project 52: Week 3

I am so late with this. I know I am supposed to do it every Wednesday but life happens I guess! Here goes week three:

Beautiful weather, so we played outside all day!

Clean Banana Bread

We have several things going on around these parts here lately. We have both boys signed up for spring baseball (which will begin sooner than I am ready), I am in a redecorating mood, and I am on a kick to get more produce in this house and less "shelf food". That being said: I made some pretty awesome "CLEAN" banana bread a few days ago. I got the recipe here (gotta give credit where credit is due)!


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar free applesauce
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3 mashed overripe bananas


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together applesauce and honey. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.

iPhone Pics This Week

This week was pretty fun. I have spent a lot of time on pinterest planning to redecorate. Now I have to go and do something about it. But that's a whole different post! Here is a peek into our week:

Buddies! He loves play time with his sister!

Grocery shopping.

A stop at the library...

Zoo Day

We had the nicest weather this weekend. It stayed around 70 degrees and wasn't too hot or cold. It was overcast but really nice out. We decided to take a chance at the zoo yesterday and we lucked up big time. Lovely weather and small crowds. It was very nice! Paisley had the time of her life looking at all of the animals. Everything she saw was a "puppy".

BEWARE!!! Picture overload ahead. I had to try out my new lens and I am very pleased with it!

Try to hang in through all the picture madness!

Silly boys.

Amazed at the elephant puppy.

I LOVE how this turned out.

He has mastered being a girl daddy.

I may have been obsessed with the gorillas. We watched them forever.

Really buddy?

After a picnic in the park we headed home to watch the hubs have a heart attack over the Falcons game. They pulled it off but we were a little scared for him at one point!
