Lots of Kara and Some Food, too

Well hello there friends! Took last week off for two reasons, the main one being because my work decided to block Google Photos… boooo… and I normally blog at work, haha. The other being that I was busy and just didn’t feel like it. I COULD have done it at home, but just wanted to spend time with Todd and Kara <3 (Warning: lots of Kara pics below. Scroll halfway down for the food, haha)

Yay Kara

Kara says, YAY mommy! She is just the best these days. So curious and happy.

I mean, this is how she wakes up from a nap… that crossed leg though…

She loves sitting in regular chairs and I think it’s too cute…

We introduced a variety of foods to her from the get go and it seems to be paying off! She eats the rainbow! Her faves: bananas, avocado, peanut butter (or any nut butter), prunes, pancakes. But she’ll eat spinach, zucchini/squash, beats, green beans, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, bell peppers, mushrooms, etc…

Kara Food

Not from the same night, but the dinner below was delicious and I always forget how yummy roasted cabbage is until my mom makes it ๐Ÿ™‚

I made some zucchini banana muffins the other day. They were a hit with everyone. I froze half of them to pull out one whenever Kara needed a healthy treat- which is often, haha. She has her mama’s appetite! I just threw things together so I can’t really share the recipe, but the Kodiak Powerย Cakes mix was the base…

Guess. What. I . Found. ENLIGHTENED! Now don’t get me wrong, I still LOVE me some Halo, but I’ve been dying to try this “new-ish” healthier ice cream and compare them. Eeee I’m so excited ๐Ÿ™‚ For those in Tampa, I found it at the new Sprouts in Carrollwood.

And last but not least… Happy (belated) St. Patty’s Day from me and my luck charm <3

St Patty Day

Now that Kara is over a year (15.5 months to be exact) I love looking back a year and seeing what we were up to and what she was like back then… HERE’s what we did last St. Patty’s Day. Have a great week everyone and HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SPRING!

Linking up with The Weekly Wrap, Mommy Moments, and Inspire Me Monday!

  1. I can’t believe how big she is getting!! She is totally adorable.
    And now I’m curious about this ENLIGHTENED – I wonder if we have it in Ohio!?

  2. I’ve been buying halo top at whole foods for months. Love them! I’ve never seen Enlightened but been wanting to try it..l thanks to this post I looked at jewel today (illinois / Midwest grocery store), found 4 favors!!! They didn’t have them just days ago so these are brand new. Of course I HAD to get all 4… And had to try them all too ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Coffee, fudge brownie, mint chip, PB chip. They’re good… But halo top IMHO is better! I wish jewel has that cheesecake one, I wanna try that one!

    Do you like halo top or enlightened more? Also, which enlightened flavor is the best?

    • I haven’t tried them yet! I need to get on that today, haha. I think Halo is going to be hard to beat! I’ve been told the Birthday Cake and Mint Chip are the bomb, so I’ll prob try one of those first ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad you were able to find them. I haven’t seen them at Whole Foods at all.

  3. She is precious! She looks like such a big girl in the playground mulch!!! Stupid Ft. Myers this weekend…the JCA’s need some Kara time.
