Protein Buckeyes

 

Happy Friday the 13th!! To celebrate football season (my Ohio State Buckeyes!!!) and the holiday season I wanted to share this Protein Buckeye recipe I found. I love chocolate and peanut butter and these make me feel a little less guilty!! The original Buckeye Candies have a few more ingredients that make it a little harder to watch your waist line, but these are amazing and you can easily put them back like no big deal!!

Headed West – The 2015 Goodbye Austin Tour

I recently made a HUGE decision, one that has been on my mind for awhile. So after my last vacation I came back to work with a new goal – getting my personal life up and running! El Paso here I come!! I have moved from Austin many times and before the final day I always try to eat at my favorite Austin-only restaurants and see my favorite Austin-only people (all while procrastinating that whole packing thing….which is for the birds, btw.) Here are a few images from the “2015 Goodbye Austin Tour!!”

In October we wear PINK!

Did you know 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime? October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month and everything turns PINK to bring awareness to this disease. Many companies will donate a portion of proceeds from pink items to organizations like Susan G. Komen, Bright Pink and Young Survival Coalition. I have put together a list of where you can find products to purchase and a few events to participate in to give back and get involved!

#tbt to the 2010 Austin Race for the Cure

Get Shopping!!

  • New Balance has an entire line, Lace Up For the Cure, where they will donate 5% of the MSRP of each product sold with a guaranteed minimum donation of $500,000 in 2015, 2016 and 2017!!
  • Dick’s Sporting Goods has an incredible collection of pink-wear not only for women but men and youth as well!
  • Carbon38 also has an amazing pink shop featuring two new exclusive styles. For every pair sold they will donate $10 to Susan G Komen for cancer research!
  • 100% of the proceeds from this cute Fabletics outfit will be donated to Bright Pink, an organization “on a mission to save women’s lives from breast and ovarian cancer.”

Get Active!!

  • Susan G Komen is the most recognizable organization for breast cancer awareness and research. I have participated in a few of their Race for the Cure events and would love to tackle a 3day event in the future! Check out their website for local events near you!
  • If dancing is more your thing, check out Party in Pink, they have teamed up with Susan G. Komen to raise money through Zumbathons hosted by licensed Zumba instructors. This looks like the ultimate party all while raising money for an important cause! #movetogive

Here are a few more pink items that I found around the web:

Weekly Round Up – Pumpkin Flavored

Fall officially began this past week and the pumpkins are out!! Pumpkin flavored EVERYTHING is EVERYWHERE and I am beyond excited! While we were in South Carolina a week back, I had two wishes: 1. Ride the incredibly large ferris wheel right on the ocean and 2. Go to my favorite restaurant at the beach and try their pumpkin offerings. While I didn’t make it to the ferris wheel, I did manage to eat the Swordfish + Pumpkin Ravioli and Pumpkin Creme Brûlée! They were both amazing! I didn’t take pictures at dinner so head over to their website to check out pictures of this season’s specials.
