My husband has now been gone at the #thomasfire for 9 days🚒so I’ve been doing all I can to keep occupied and not be like 😭
Baking to the rescue!♥️I think of baking as wonderfully distracting edible craft projects😆
If you need an edible craft project too, get yourself some deals on ingredients at 25MerryDays.com where @krogerco has 100+ digital coupons just waiting for you to snag🙌🏼 I used one to get the craisins for these vegan cranberry almond muffins!
Now I just need my firefighter back home and help me eat them♥️
Happy #nationalcocoaday !...which actually might be tomorrow. The internet seems confused about if it’s today or tomorrow😶But whatever, I’m choosing to celebrate it today😛
Recipe link is in my Stories today!🙌🏼
P.S. Currently on day 8 of my husband🚒being gone at the #thomasfire ♥️
Life is starting to feel a little more normal the longer I’ve been back home after last week’s wildfire evacuation. The one piece missing is that my husband still hasn’t come home yet🚒
I’d love to do something extra special for him once he’s back (other than kiss the heck out of him!💋) to show how proud and grateful I am of his incredible service and dedication♥️
With so many great deals @cruisecritic right now, I kind of think escaping back to the Caribbean together might be the perfect thing!🌴♥️
Relaxation for him, firefighter eye candy for me😉😘
Happy #nationalbrownieday !
New recipe is on the blog for these insanely addicting Fudgy Vegan Chocolate Chip Brownies🖤
Direct link is in my Stories today👍🏼
It feels weird to be posting something like this at the end of the horrifying week myself + others have had (and the start of a horrifying weekend for some) #thomasfire
I’d actually prepped the blog post right before all the fires started on Monday so, in the hopes of finding the comfort of normalcy, I’m sharing it as I’d scheduled♥️
To everyone who has been or could still be affected by the fires, and to the firefighters like my husband who are still out there fighting...♥️♥️♥️
Well. The past few days have contained some of the most horrifying moments of my life.
Waking up to my husband’s phone call and evacuating myself + kitties in the middle of the night while hell rolls down the hill outside our bedroom is something I never want to experience again.
So grateful for a kind host family giving us a safe place to stay, our house remaining intact, my husband continuing to stay safe while still fighting the wildfires, and for all of you who’ve been following along with my Stories and messaging me♥️
Today I came back home, my husband’s crew finally got to rest back at their station, and I finally got to see him (after being separated since 7pm Monday).
Photo 1 was today.
Photo 2 was while I was driving away from hell Monday night.
Photos 4, 5 & 8 are of my husband (RAWR). Photo 4 is particularly horrific😰
Photo 6 was Tuesday AM while driving towards Ventura from my initial evac place in Carpinteria to my host family in Simi Valley.
Prayers for everyone affected by the fires♥️
Happy #nationalcookieday !
Just for this special occasion, I retested my Chewy Vegan Lemon Cookies and updated the recipe on the blog!🍋YAY!
Direct link to the recipe is in my stories today!🙌🏼
Happy #caturday !🐱
I wouldn’t let Wampus chew on the vegan brownies during this week’s photoshoot, so he settled for chewing on my backdrop while watching birdies out the window.
Happy 5 month birthday to our fur babies!🎉🐱🐱
Basically I just wanted an excuse to take another family photo (obviously the cats are thrilled)😄I love comparing each one and seeing how much our kitties keep growing🤗
You better believe I’m going to throw them a 1st birthday party next June!😍🎉
I thought today was national chocolate day, so last night I baked these vegan chocolate chip brownies + a batch of vegan chocolate thumbprint cookies. I wanted to be extra prepared👊🏼
Turns out it’s national chocolateS day.
I’ll just have to drown my humiliation in delicious brownies and cookies, darn😉And double darn, there’s even more for me than usual because my husband is sick and doesn’t want any sweets😏
Happy #nationalfrenchtoastday (and #toasttuesday )!
We just happened to have a crusty baguette lying around in need of a life purpose🥖so I made my hubs some french toast this morning to celebrate😄
Recipe for this Vegan French Toast is on the blog if you want to celebrate too!🎉
Mondays aren’t so bad when they’re full of fluffy kitties + comfy exercise clothes + cyber Monday shopping!
