Peppermint Protein Hot Chocolate 

Happy Friday friends!
Been a little quiet this week over here. It was a pretty busy week and I have focusing on some other areas of life. Had a girls night, went to my Bible study group, worked on finding curtains for our master bath (and was successful!) as well as spending quality time with the hubs, some evening kick butt workouts and cooking a LOT!


Yay for new curtains!

Plus getting ready for another weekend away so yep, it’s been a busy week!

Fall weather decided to grace us with its presence a few mornings this week and even yesterday afternoon! The humidity has dropped to around 50% and it has been feeling glorious! Makes me miss the cool northern fall weather and I even put on our little firepace (minus the heat element for now…hehe)
SO of course this weeks recipe theme was perfect with the change of weather!


I am linking up with Farrah from Fairyburger, Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama, and Jess from Hello to Fit for our hot & festive drink themed week!
