Healthy Energy Bites

I'm trying to get healthier skinny (let's be honest)!!! I found this recipe on Pinterest and changed it up a bit to this little lovie here! Hope y'all try it & like these little balls of energy!!!


Energy Bites

5 tbsp quick cooking oats
2 tbsp PB2 (if ya don't have this on hand just add peanut butter)
1 tbsp Hershey's sugar free chocolate chips (or more if you're feelin' a lil crazy)
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp water

Mix all ingredients together. When well mixed, form dough into a few balls ( I made 5, but you could just make one giant one. No judging here.) Place in freezer for about 30 mins for them to set up or you can just eat em right then and there if you can't stand to wait!!!



As you can see these are kid approved too. I had to fight the lil punk for the last one!!!

Spring Cleaning & Recipe

I've got the spring cleaning bug and boy do I need it!!! Having all these boys tearing up my house is driving this momma crazy. Okay I'll admit it too...I'm lazy!!! (There really should be a support group for lazy people like AA, seriously I'm in need of some 12 steps! Or a big swift kick in the ass!) This house is ridiculously dirty. The other day I said I wanted to find my happy and I figured out that a clean & organized house makes me happy. So there you go, a light bulb moment!!!


First was my entry way closet. This is where I keep my vacuum, gift bags, wrapping paper, and birthday decor!



Way better!!! Next up were two small drawers in my kitchen.


This is the drawer where I keep all the birthday, Christmas and Thank you cards!!!! 




Check out that Twilight card I meant to send my niece like 2 years ago and just now found. I wonder if she would think it was funny if I sent it to her now. Hey it has a really cool poster in it!!! Bonus!!!


This drawer is where we keep cords, chargers, old iphones & ipods.


See that ugly velvet pouch thingy? Well it's some weird cell phone carrier that hangs around your neck. My aunt gave it to my mom for Christmas and of course my mom thought it was the dumbest gift ever! Ha! So it's a running joke that my mom hides it somewhere in my house when she visits and when I find it I return the favor & hide it some where in her stuff. Yep, she hid it in the drawer & I finally found it! I guess I can hide it somewhere in her Mother's Day gift!!!

Last but not least I'll leave y'all with the best Chicken n Dumplin recipe!!! Y'all will want to thank me after trying these. They're so good that they'll make ya want to slap ya momma!!!



Ingredients

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (or leftover chicken)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 2 (10 ounce) packages refrigerated biscuit dough, torn into pieces
  • chicken broth

Directions

  1. Place the chicken, butter, soup, and onion in a slow cooker, and fill with enough chicken broth to cover.
  2. Cover, and cook for 5 to 6 hours on High. About 60 minutes before serving, place the torn biscuit dough in the slow cooker. Cook until the dough is no longer raw in the center.

My fairy Godmother, Paula Deen might have been speakin' to me cause I put way more butter than that in & I throw in some whole milk!!! Hey, I'm just keepin it honest with y'all folks!!! Hope y'all try'em & love'em!!! Happy Thursday y'all!!!

Goodwill Wardrobe

This is the shirt I found last week at Goodwill and I'm loving it!!! The back is soooo adorable!



I got my carpi/jeans at goodwill too a while back. The white tank I have on under the shirt I swear I wear it everyday. It's like spandex material and sucks everything in!! It's the reason I look thin, holla!!!


This shirt I found at Goodwill too! I just loved the saying on it, "Let us love in action and truth." Of course I had to google it and come to fine out it's a bible verse!!! 1 John 3:18!!! Lovin it even more now.

 Well I'm off to buy some containers for some cleaning and organizing I'm doin' (I might swing by Goodwill for some junkin' too, shhhhhhh don't tell my hubby, ha)!!!! Happy Wednesday Y'all!!!!

Trying to Find My Happy

I've decided to start trying to find my happy. What are things that make me happy? Isn't that what makes "it" all worth it? Right?! A big "ah-ha" moment I had yesterday was that if I was just happy with me/my body then maybe I wouldn't have my weight problem. If I was just happy with what I have I wouldn't have such a spending/money problem. Okay I'll stop with those two biggies cause my list could go on and on!!! But y'all get what I'm gettin' at!

I've decided to STOP doing anything that doesn't make me happy and to start finding the stuff that does!!! I'm gonna embrace my "Happy Journey"!!!

Something that really makes me happy is...country music! So I'll leave y'all with two of my favorite Miranda Lambert songs. Hope y'all have a happy Tuesday!!!

Weekend Recap

Friday night Jaxon had a baseball game and so did Jonathan. Justin stayed with Jaxon at his while I headed to Jonathan's. His ended up being cancelled because they didn't have any umps show up, so on the way home Justin & I decided to go to Galveston and meet up with some friends & family! We did the bar, dancin' & karaoke thing!!! I was proud of myself for not getting sloshed & only having a few drink (this momma was NOT getting a hangover, holla)!!!





 Saturday we woke up and headed to our friends, Llyod & Adriel's house for a crawfish boil (seems like everyone was having one that day. There were 52 million pics on instagram of crawfish)!!!


I was really proud of myself that night too for my drinking!!! Adriel juiced me a fresh pineapple and I mixed it with some vodka. It was amaze-balls!!! Sunday we woke up and were strickin' with complete laziness (even the boys)!!! We just laid around, slept and watch TV (okay so I read a trashy romance novel all day. HEAVEN!)!!!


Hope y'all had a great weekend and happy Monday y'all!!

Teal Skinnies

Okay I've been wanting to try to wear more color skinnies. I've wrote about the red ones I found & wore and now it's all about the dark teal ones!!! I've been on pinterest scoping out the colored skinnies for a while now.



 So when I found the red ones I was so happy to snag teal ones as well. Again I got these for only $5!!! Holla!!!


I paired them with a Forever 21 top I got a while back at Goodwill for $5 and my brown boots (we were heading to baseball and for some strange reason it's a little chilly here in TX).


Love my wishbone necklace too! I picked this lovie up at an estate sale for $1!!! Can y'all say BARGAIN?!!!


Some one wanted in on the action!!! Evan cracks me up!!! Love him to bits!!! Happy Friday y'all!!!

A Texas Girl

I'm crushin' on Miss Kacey Musgraves! I'm loving all her music. Plus she wrote Mama's Broken Heart for Miranda Lambert (aka-my bff in my head). But most important of all this gal is representin' TEXAS!!! Holla!!!


Extra bonus...she hooked up with Josh Abbott Band, also from TEXAS (yes the best music comes from here), on their song Oh, Tonight!


So what y'all think?! She's gonna do big things, right?!!! Happy Thursday y'all!!!!
