Peanut Butter Balls

Life has not slowed down one bit since I finished finals. But I am enjoying not being in school.

Today I bring you a recipe for peanut butter balls of goodness. I found this on Pinterest and wanted to recreate it immediately! Luckily I had all the ingredients on hand. The original recipe can be found here.

I did substitute and leave some things out, also I didn't really measure anything, just guesstimated. I think they turned out great and are nice to have for when you want something sweet or even for a quick breakfast on the go.

            My Version:
  • Chocolate chips
  • White Chocolate Peanut Butter
  • Oatmeal
  • Honey
  • Hemp Fiber Protein 

Just pour it all in a bowl and mix it up like so

Then roll into balls and throw in the fridge for an hour or so. 
And Ta-da!! Fast, easy AND delicious peanut butter balls!

You can add pretty much anything you like!! Coconut, nuts, dried bananas, craisins. What would you add in? The options are endless :)

MN Blogger Meet Up: Pictures with Santa

A week later I have finally gotten around to posting about our latest MN blogger Meet up, this time we met at the Mall of America for a picture with Santa and then we got dinner and drinks at Dick's Last Resort. This crazy restaurant where the waiters are rude and sarcastic and you are supposed to like it!! It was pretty funny. We each got to wear a paper hat throughout the meal with some less than appropriate sayings. Thank you Kelly for providing most of these pictures :)

Becky brought little baby Bailey with, we were all in love, including Santa.

We also did a fun Secret Santa, Jess was my 'santa' and got me some awesome stuff. Thank you lady!!

(don't mind Jamal's ashy elbow...)

It was a blast and I cannot wait for our next one!

It's Not Christmas Without Snow

This Weekend I...
Okay, not really but we did get 7 inches of snow in a day. The roads were horrible and the plows could not keep up. It was pretty crazy but soooo pretty. Expect for the fact that I am as sore as can be after working out at the gym only to come home and shovel the drive way (were not cool enough to have a snow blower)  then have to do it again today!! That massage I am going to get to much is much needed!

This Weekend I...
Attended my family's annual Christmas Party, AKA Pasqualli's. It is always a good time with family, drinking and snacking on appetizers.

This year Santa couldn't make it due to the snow so one of his elves came in his place.

Linking up with Sar

PS to my MN bloggers, sorry I have been a major slacker!! Post coming tomorrow about the meet up :)

Weekend Fun

Life is super hectic right now, week before finals!!! So sorry if I am neglecting this little blog of mine as well as all of yours :( but soon I will have so much free time I won't know what to do with myself! K, not really but I won't have to study for anything for the next month so that is always a plus.

This Weekend I...

Hung out with Nickle and baby Elijah. I haven't seen them in a while so it was fun to spend time with them and catch up.

This Weekend I...

Made cookies with Karissa. But we didn't make very many, only delicious peanut cookies but instead of putting a kiss in the middle we put in mini reeses!!! Brilliant and so good. And also for my first time ever Oreo truffles. So easy and quite yummy.

ps Do you put those chocolate stars in the middle or kisses??? I always love putting the hugs in the middle too.

This Weekend I...

Had a girls night with my mom and sister. We had Panera for dinner then went to "The Story" tour. It was this concert which had about 5 different singers, including Jeremy Camp and Matthew West :) And they told the story of Jesus by singing songs about different people in the Bible. It was pretty cool. But it was getting late so we had to leave at the intermission so I could somewhat function today.

Linking up with Sar again

And Today I am looking forward to the MN Blogger meet up tomorrow!!!! YAY! Can't wait to see all you ladies :)
