We decided that instead of doing gifts for one another we would both get $20 to do what we want with and then we would go get dinner out…

Fig Salad Dressing: Healthy and Sweet

Ever since I was little I can remember helping my mom and grandma pick figs every summer. My mom has two huge fig trees in her back yard and we get tons of figs from them every year.

Healthy Peaches and Cream Smoothie

I have absolutely been obsessed with fruit smoothies lately. I’m not sure if it’s the insanely hot weather or just pregnancy cravings but I can’t seem to get enough.
