Back from St. George with Some Banana Mini Muffins

St. George was glorious. We were only there for like 36 hours, but it felt so great to see the sun and do well...nothing basically...

We managed to hit up my favorite location for some lunch. We got there before the girls we were meeting, so we sat in the sun with our windows down. It felt awesome. 
Side note: I could live in my Toms. I have three pairs, and they are like pillows on my feet.  
Apparently the people of St. George aren't used to salad stackers like myself. We got quite a few comments on our impressive construction. It ain't no thang. 

We went walking around a local park and all sat down for a sec just to enjoy the weather, and we happened to sit down in perfect formation. A picture was clearly due.
 There are two things going on here. Lots of happiness and lots of wind tangled hair. 
Mmmmm Vitamin D does a body good.
 We accidentally were all caught on our phones. It happens, right?
 We had so much fun. The only downside was I didn't get an outside run in while we were down there. I love to go run in new places, and I was totally looking forward to it. It's so fun and interesting to me, and it makes my run exciting. I brought my running gear, but no dice. I think I might have a stress fracture in my foot...I don't want to think about it. It hurts to walk. :(

 On a happier note. I came home itching to bake something. Remember these Healthy Banana Crumb Muffins that I made a few months back? Well, I decided to make them again using the same recipe, but in mini muffin form.
This time I used greek yogurt instead of the regular vanilla yogurt and it worked out amazingly. 
Why are mini muffins so cute and fun to eat? You need to try them. Healthy, and delicious.
They turned out perfect...minus this guy.
 I could have made some sweet mini muffin tops with a whole batch turning out like this one.

I hope your weekend has been great! Do you like to run in new places? I always have my same trails I love and can count on, but when I have no time schedule and I can run/explore I love it! Do you always have bananas going bad? Because I swear I do. Don't worry I don't waste them, I just find new uses for them...hence banana flavored everything :)

i told myself i wouldn't read blogs tonight but i had to read yours :) haha--my friends and i always talk about how when we are waiting at a restaurant or something, EVERYONE in the waiting area is on their phone. so last night, we put our phones away and talked while we waited. it was weird, but good. and what do you know, words with friends was still there this morning! ha. those muffins look great. if you like toms and think they are comfy, you should get a pair of sanuks. omg.. sooo squishy and comfy! i love them. although they don't donate a pair to a needy child.. toms rocks for that :) have a great week! xo

Hehe mini muffins are too cute. I love your unfortunate shaped one. Those always taste the best.

I am so sorry to hear about your foot!!! I hope it isn't what you think it is.

i heart st. george. we were there over easter weekend and i took a cool photo of my hub running with me on the red dirt trail. so pretty there! this past weekend i bought my first pair of toms and a pair for my 6 year old daughter. hers are a lot cuter than mine. i love banana muffins. i hope your foot is not fractured. for me, the pain is usually the sign for new shoes or at least new insoles.

gotta love the phone pic! We've started to leave our phones in the car now when we go out to eat. I feel naked, but its a good thing. Forced to talk, haha.

i LOVE using old bananas. I always feel like it's Christmas when I see a big bunch of browning bananas on the produce clearance rack at my grocery store.

Love all of the pictures and especially the one of the 4 of you. So cute! I love St. George and also love mini vacations.

I really hope you don't have a stress fracture I am crossing my fingers for you. Have a great week! :)

Mel said...

looks like a great time!

I run everywhere I go, I love running new places (that is after I research and scope them out for safety).

Vanessa @ Gourmet Runner said...

Those muffins look so cute and delicious! Hope your foot is ok!
Phone pic of all of you girls is too funny!

Boo... stress fracture sucks... I really hope it's not a stress fracture. :(

but I am glad you had fun in St. George. So jealous of your sunshine-y weather. :)
