Colorful Vegetable Crescent Pizza {guest post from Learning Patience}

I feel especially lucky to have my good friend, Corey, guest posting for me today! She is the sweetest, nicest, most positive girl I know. Enjoy this yummy (and easy!) recipe, and definitely check out her blog to drool over her amazing life in Trinidad!

Hello Hungry Healthy Happy Readers!

I’m silly, a tad bit ridiculous but a ton of FUN!

I’m super excited to be guest posting for ­­­­­­­Melissa today.  
Melissa & I met thru blogging months ago and soon realized we were both originally from Michigan.  

i stole this from her…
 I started Learning Patience last June, when my life changed drastically.
My husband and I moved from Houston, TX to the beautiful island of Trinidad! 
Becoming an expat has been fun and exciting BUT it is definitely filled with plenty of “learning patience” moments. My blog is filled with a ton of recipes, tips on staying in shape and running, and lots of fun day-to-day stuff.
We became blog friends fast, so when she asked me, while on vacation in Steamboat, to guest post…all I could say was YES!  I jumped on the chance to help this lady out!  I mean, I would never have run my half marathon, if not for her.  
Melissa inspired me to train and complete my 1st half. It was scary, intimidating & seemed out of my reach, but somehow, she knew I could do it.  This story is a bitter sweet because I was supposed to come to Michigan next week (for the birth of my future niece/nephew) and while I was there…I was going to run my 1st 1/2 with herthen she got injured.  I prayed and hoped & pouted that she would be OK to run.  
As time went on, we both knew it wasn’t happening.  
So, 2 weeks ago, at 4:45 am in Trinidad, I woke up and ran.  
I ran because I could…and frankly…she couldn’t.  
I finished under 2 hoursmy goal.
My 1st Half Marathon – Done!
I would love to say that I would have become this amazing runner person by myself.  The truth is, I wouldn’t have.  I never would have thought that by starting my lil’ blog and meeting people from all over the world, they could and would inspire me to do things I never thought possible.  Next week, we finally get to meet in person – so fun! 

Let’s eat now, shall we?!?!
Here is one of my go-to party recipes – it’s easy and delicious and oh so colorful!
