Skinny Blackberry Cobbler + 2 Challenges

Isn’t Sunday just extra sweet when you know you don’t have to go back to work on Monday? :)

We had a fairly leisurely — minus the excitement that always comes with teaching first graders in Sunday School. We made Joseph’s coat of many colors paper bag puppets!!!!

Skinny Blackberry Cobbler (adapted from Southern Living)

  • Large package of fresh blackberries
  • 1 TBSP lemon juice
  • 2 TSP vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 TBSP agave nectar (or sweetener of your choice)
  • 3/4 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (could probably use only almond meal)
  • 6 TBSP Melt buttery spread (melted)

Divide blackberries among four ramekins. Mix all other ingredients together. Spoon cobbler mixture over blackberries. Bake at 350 for approximately 15 minutes.


We went to see What to Expect When You’re Expecting this afternoon. At the Landmark Theater because you get complimentary popcorn and Diet Cokes!  I know we’re going a little bit crazy. This is our second movie of the year but I kind of can’t resist the J-Lo. She was my favorite character too! Maybe because she’s the one who adopted a baby from Ethiopia! Cameron Diaz’s character was pretty funny too because she basically played a pregnant Jillian Michaels  type. Ha! A little too much delivery room footage for my delicate sensibilities, but nothing gross-out.

2 challenges:

Challenge #1:

Note: 1 mile is the minimum. ;)  (via Runner’s World)

Challenge #2:

#She Reads Truth

To get started, download the Soul Detox plan via YouVersion. Every morning we are sharing our thoughts and journal clippings on Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #SheReadsTruth. I can’t even begin to tell you how encouraged this community has made me….and how it is changing my heart. We are currently on Day 10 but it’s not too late to catch up! Plus, YouVersion makes a handy dandy little app for your iPhone so you can really do this plan whenever/whenever. (via Eat Live Run)

I loved this first post I read on it from Tiny Twig on accountability and spurring each other on. I joined a bit late, but I’m all in! I’m not on Twitter, but this is tempting me to join so I can read more! :)

Are you in? For one or both challenges? The Soul Detox reading plan passages are super short. I’ve been reading them in bed while Kevin is shaving. The running is just a MILE. More than likely 10 minutes or less. Even if it takes 15! I actually thought the RW challenge went through Labor Day! Ha! It’s just 4th of July!! That’s not bad — even Kevin said so!

P.S. I mentioned in my last post that we put in an offer for a house. Well, they had another bidder as well (first day on the market – those lucky ducks!) so they asked us to both put in our highest number. We did, but the seller still rejected both offers saying that they were too low for such a short time on the market. Boo! We’ve refused to budge so we’re seeing if they come back to us. Otherwise, we know that it’s not the place for us! :) Although it does have literally the most beautiful refrigerator I have ever seen and a treadmill room AND a piano room. Haha.

  1. The skinny blackberry cobbler sounds/looks delicious! I love fruit cobbler- any fruit will do!
    I want to see that movie- but Snow White and the Huntsman is on the top of my list!

  2. I’m going running at 830 am. Kelly bought me a running outfit so I HAVE to go now! Nothing quite like those “cheerleader” shorts of yours I borrowed back when.
