Avocado Brownies

Happy Friday! So, I had a different post written up for today, but I made a split second decision to change it up because these AVOCADO BROWNIES are too good to keep to myself!

I found this recipe over at FrugalMomeh.com and have been meaning to give it a try for a while now. I mean, I already love chocolate avocado cookies, and chocolate avocado pudding, so avocado brownies naturally seemed like the next dessert to make (btw, can you tell I LOVE chocolate?!).

Blissful Bedtime Yoga Sequence

While this time of year is fun and exciting, I think us mamas also find there is a certain level of stress that comes along with it. We are so busy making sure everyone is going to find what they asked for under the tree, baking for the classroom and holiday parties, attending school plays and recitals, it can be really easy to forget to take care of ourselves. Who else finds that the stresses from the day hit hardest right at bedtime? As soon as I close my eyes and lay my head down, my mind goes into overdrive – making lists and remembering all of the things I should have gotten done during the day, but didn’t get to.

When I feel the stresses from the day are going to affect my sleep, I have a bedtime yoga sequence that I turn to. This yoga sequence can take anywhere from 5-10 minutes, or more if you choose to spend more time in the poses, but even after 5 minutes I’ve found the tension is released from my mind and body, and I can go on to enjoy a peaceful slumber.
