Mini Morning Banana Muffins

It felt like a muffin kind of morning and so I decided to whip up some banana muffins.  I found a yummy sounding recipe over at How Sweet It Is and then instead of a brown butter glaze, I opted for plain-old-muffins.

Last night, I had a super nice dinner with my co-site director, Anna, and director, Lucy.  We went to Kona Grill where from 5:30-7:30 in the "seat yourself" section, you can participate in Happy Hour.  They have tons of half-priced appetizers, small meals, sushi, and of course, drinks.  It was exciting because I am finally 21 and I got to order a drink and get "carded" for real for the first time! I love the friends that I make through camp.  We had a great time and it was a nice way to make a Wednesday summer evening feel a little more special.
Afterwards, I got to be super early and of course, woke up too early once again.  Thus, the muffins.
