Yogurt and yoga

I love yogurt. Especially Chobani. The cups just aren’t big enough! I used to go through phases with yogurt.. I’d be in the mood, buy a bunch, and then they would go bad in the fridge. I especially never liked chunky yogurt. Ever.

But then something happened when I moved into my own house. I started shopping totally for myself and decided one day that I was in one of those rare yogurty moods. I grabbed a Chobani Flip and couldn’t stop obsessing.

Now every time I go to the grocery store I buy handfuls of Chobani. Handful was an understatement.. I can’t usually carry the amount that I buy. Breakfast, snack, dessert… I really cant stop.

My go-to is coconut (I buy those in 4-packs), the flips are usually eaten before bed (I especially like the chocolate, almond, coconut one) and the banana, dark chocolate Indulgent, yeah those are gone in seconds.

I even cook with it! The other day I made kale and artichoke dip with Chobani’s plain greek yogurt. Oh so good.

Today I had one of the Limited Batch Apple Cinnamon. So yummy and festive. Pumpkin is delicious too. I hope that they come out with another Limited Batch for Christmas. Maybe something else to do with cinnamon.. or cranberry?

For the record this wasn’t a sponsored ad. I just love the stuff.

I also just realized that my yoga book made a cameo in that photo. Didn’t notice it at first. Ive been trying to slowly work myself into yoga. I love the idea of it and envy yogis for their strength and grace. I’ve never taken an actual class and Im wondering if thats why I don’t really feel like I can say, “I do yoga”.

But I have a pretty mat!

It fascinates me though. I follow yoga instructors on Instagram and my cousin is also an instructor and sent me the book in the photo a while back when I first told her I was interested. Too bad she lives in Wisconsin or I would have my own personal instructor.

There wasn’t much point to this post.. other than expressing my love for two somewhat random things. I think Im going to go do some sun salutations now… At least Im motivated today!

 

A summery mess

Hey guys. Hopefully some of you are still out there…. waiting for me to post. It’s been quite a while. Over two months. I haven’t forgotten, its been haunting me that I haven’t been writing, just been too busy or tired to even start thinking of writing something.

Work has finally died down, but now the next project starts. Christmas. Yes, I know its 6 months away, but 6 months is barely enough time for us to price, organize, set-up and display the thousands of decorations and such that we handle. To me, Christmas doesn’t mean a holiday anymore, it means a huge project to tackle.

Anyway. I am writing just to write. I have no topic.. just trying to get myself back into the groove of blogging. I really love it, I just need to get my brain back into that mode I guess. I haven’t even been reading blogs!

So since I’ve been gone what have I been doing?

Taking lots of pictures and maintaining our social media for our garden center, working outside all day… even on my days off I’ve been helping one of my friends who designs gardens. I’ve been galavanting back and forth between college friends houses and home, driving straight to them after work and spending weekends. And trying to find a little bit of time for myself in between it all. Summer seems to get away from you, doesn’t it?

Here’s a random photo mash-up of life lately.

If you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably already seen a bunch of these pictures… Instagram is one of my favorite places to be.. so if you haven’t found me yet, you should… my screen name is krtaylor88. I hope you find me so I can follow you back!

I’ll be back soon.. I have all kinds of ideas spinning through my mind and I’ll have to write them all down soon enough.

See you all soon!
