Monthly Memories | May 2017

May was another super busy month, but jam packed with so much fun. 

With full time school finally being done, I started working full time again at the beginning of May, as well as starting my online classes.

Not only that, camping season has come back in full swing and with the addition of a new trailer for us this year, we’re out almost every single weekend. 

Saying this summer is a little busy is a bit of an understatement, and May definitely started out strong. But busy is fun and it makes me so excited to still have so much summer ahead of us.

Quick & Easy Dinner Ideas

I’m all about dinners that are simple and quick, because when you’re as busy as we are with schedules all over the map, that’s what ya need. 

Hunting for actual easy dinner ideas has come to be a bit of a task. Some people think easy means 18 super obscure ingredients that I definitely don’t have, let alone even find at the grocery store. 

All of these recipes I have actually tried myself and have made over and over because they’re simple yet oh so yummy. Shout out to the bloggers who came up with these recipes because you’ve been my saving grace.

I’m Feelin’ 22 | Twenty Second Birthday Bucket List

On Monday May 15th, I turned 22!

My day ended up being so relaxing, with a spontaneous day off (thanks to the rain!) and overall it was a very good birthday. 

Last year on my 21st, I put together a list of 21 things I wanted to accomplish in my 22nd year. You can find that post here.

Overall, I feel like I did a pretty decent job at accomplishing majority of the items on that list. Every so often I went back and checked things off and added in how I accomplished it, and it’s been pretty fun.

Mini Banana Cream Pie In A Jar

I’ve always had a pretty big sweet tooth, especially after I eat a meal. I’m always craving something sweet after dinner, yet my boyfriend is the total opposite. He would definitely rather have seconds of dinner than some dessert.

So it puts me in a predicament of wanting to make something for dessert, but not wanting a whole dish to go to waste with me being the only one to eat it!

Lately I’ve been craving bananas so I wanted to make a little individual dessert that incorporated bananas. I hopped onto Pinterest to try and find a recipe and couldn’t really find one that worked with the ingredients I had at home. 

Thus, I threw one together myself.
