Pineapple Smoothie Bowl.

Hola!  We are back from Costa Rica and I hope y’all haven’t forgotten about me because I haven’t forgotten about you!  In fact, I thought about you a lot during my time in Central America – when I was eating incredible food and when I was hiking through the cloud forest, I thought about how much I couldn’t wait to share my experiences with y’all! So, on that note, it’s good to be back. 🙂  I can’t wait to share some of our pictures – which I promise to soon!

But first, I want to share with you some wonderful news…

Fruity Nutty Smoothie.

I had to go to the dentist this past Thursday. 😦 No, it wasn’t just a regular cleaning/check-up – that happened a few weeks ago.  This appointment was to “fix” a tooth.  My dentist wasn’t quite sure what was going on with it.  He said it was either partially fractured or I had a nasty cavity.  In this situation neither outcome is ideal, but if I had pick, I was hoping for the cavity.
