Celebrating 101: Make Fruit Burritos

Hi Friends 🙂

Thank you everyone for your comments yesterday! Although I wish no one had to deal with lack of self-esteem or self-worth (or my Holly Monster as I referred to it yesterday) – it is somewhat comforting to know that I am not alone in those feelings.

What helps me is taking care of myself. When I am eating well, exercising consistently and getting plenty of rest each night I feel better about myself. My goal this week (and every week!) is to keep those three points in focus. When I take care of myself I feel better about myself. Sounds easy, and yet I have such a hard time doing all three at once. I know I am just too hard on myself and expect perfection.

Ok, enough of this sad blogging! Moving on…

I was reading Angela’s blog yesterday and saw her amazing creation: Easy Apple Pie Burritos. They looked delicious! I had to give them a try. Check ‘em out:

I followed the basic recipe, with the exception of using oat flour instead of spelt flour. I also made half of my pies with apples, and the rest with blueberries.

The crust was very crumbly, but it tasted great and it tasted just like sugary pie crust! Thanks Angela for yet another wonderful recipe!

The reason for making those little apple pie and blueberry pie burritos? This guy:

That is a picture of Jason on our wedding day! You can tell he was pretty excited about it! Yep, 3 years ago yesterday was the day that Jason proposed. I thought we deserved a little treat in order to celebrate. Here’s my favorite engagement pic:

Have a great weekend! What are you up to today?

    I really need to start doing those things to start feeling better myself…(says while sleeping in and watching Will & Grace and staring at empty pizza boxes – blah)

    Cheers 😉

    I’m so sorry it’s taken me so long to get over here and comment!

    First off, you are so lovely! I hope you are able to vanquish your inner Holly-Monster and emerge happier and victorious! I struggle, too, with low self-esteem. But seriously, you have a brilliant smile and you’re so pretty and the Holly Monster is a LIAR. ❤

    Happy proposal anniversary! 😀 That looks like a delicious celebration to me! Did you have fun at the fair? =)

    I’m doing some life planning today to help manage my stress! Yes, I will be making a to-do list – a super long one. 🙂 I’m also going for a bike ride.

    Have a great weekend! And remember that perfection is an illusion. 🙂
