I feel like I’ve been a really terrible blogger lately, but in all honesty there hasn’t been a whole lot going on around here worth sharing.
We have officially entered the “beyond over winter” stage, and have quite literally had more than enough of freezing temperatures and forecasts that call for snow and freezing rain.
I am aching to get outside with my kids and play, and I’m sure they too are yearning for some fresh air and sunshine.
In the meantime, with all of this indoor time, I have been working on lots of new items for my Etsy shop. As much as I enjoy knitting and crocheting handmade items to sell, I found that my maker-heart was aching to create more, so I have happily delved back into the world of hair accessories and even some fun jewelry for kids. In the beginning I really just wanted to create some bows/barrettes/headbands for Ella, but I found that I was really enjoying making this type of stuff, and decided why not add some of these items to the shop… so keep an eye out for some really fun new items that I will be adding as I create!
Other than that, we’re doing all that we can to keep ourselves entertained with the hopes that over the next few weeks we’ll be able to enjoy some warmer temps, and perhaps even get the opportunity to bask in the sun.
Before I go, I thought I would share the super easy recipe for these “cookies” that I made this morning. They are adapted from this original recipe that I found on Pinterest, but I am lovingly referring to my version as Chunky Monkey 2-Ingredient Cookies.
I mashed 2 ripe bananas, added 1 cup of old fashioned oats, and mixed them together, then I added 2 Tbs of PB2 and a small handful of mini chocolate chips. Then I dropped the mix by large spoonfuls onto a well greased baking sheet, and baked at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. That’s it!
These cookies (if you can even call them that), are so simple to make, are healthy, and the mix-in options are really endless!
Hope you’re all having a great week!
