Allergies.

I’m pretty sure that I’m allergic to jeans.

I just have absolutely no desire to wear them.

Oh, and shopping for jeans. That is a whole notha’ story.

They are either too small, too big, too low-rise (hello, I don’t think butt crack is a fashion statement), too high-water (long-legged people problems), too “skinny” sized…seriously, what idiot came up with skinny jeans? It’s like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. It’s not happening Jack!

Now, something I can get behind…stretchy pants. Those are my kind of pants. Lululemon stretchy yoga pants, preferrably. Butttttt…because of my bank account I will settle for a less expensive brand. The great thing about these pants…I can grab a cupcake and then head straight to yoga…or the other way around. I have a particular pair that I wear all the time. I dress them up with flats and a silk blouse, sleep in them, eat in them (p.s. stretchy pants are amazing for Thanksgiving day), do yoga in them…etc.

As spring is approaching I am opting to ditch the stretchy pants to don my legs in short, yet tasteful, shorts and colorful sun dresses.

BTW…it’s pretty much like 80 degrees here already sooooooo pants are out of the question.

Another thing I can get behind…peanut butter cookies.

We all know that peanut butter and I are bff’s.

But these pb cookies y’all…..sooooooo addicting.

The cookies are super buttery and take you on a crumb-y “melt in your mouth” like experience.

What we have here are itty-bitty, fat, flour-less peanut butter cookies, stuffed with a creamy peanut butter filling.

Girl Scouts who?

These were the perfect mid-day pick-me-up yesterday.

They are also delicious for breakfast with a glass of almond milk.

But I wouldn’t know that.

You can also look super chic in your stretchy pants while eating these suckers.

Not like Gisele Bundchen chic, more like Giada Delaurentiis chic.

A catwalk…no problem, but trying to pull off a low-cut Anthropologie blouse, while wearing an apron covered in flour…and still managing to maintain bouncy hair and fresh makeup…that’s genius.

I mean, c’mon…do you actually think those Victoria’s Secret Models eat cookies?

IMG_0968

Lies, I tell you…lies!

Run and grab your stretchy pants and let’s get to baking!

  1. Yum! These look delicious, I basically live on peanut butter and will have to try these cookies! I feel sorry for VS models who can’t eat cookies.

      Yii-Huei! I live on peanut butter too! I love it! I love those coffee cupcakes on your blog…I am a coffee addict! Must try those soon! Thanks for stopping by! :)

  2. Hi Chelsey,

    What a coincidence!! I live in TExas too! and I am actually enjoying the wonderful weather when the rest of the country still battles with cold snowy weather ! Love these cookies…am wondering what coconut sugar is???
    Lovely clicks.

      Shoba! That’s awesome! What area do you live in? Yes, we are privileged to be a “little” warmer here than in the north :) . Coconut sugar is basically an alternative form of sugar…it is produced from the coconut sap of the coconut plant. It is low in glycemic index, has tons of amino acids, and a perfectly high mineral content so is relatively a bit healthier in those terms as compared to regular sugar or brown sugar :)

  3. These cookies look beyond amazing! Love anything pb. I am also allergic to jeans. When I’m out, I love the ease and comfort of a skirt or dress.

    • Chelsy says:

      Laura, I def need to try those PB Egg Blondies on your site! I went a little crazy at the easter candy clearance at Target ;) I love the comfort of skirts and dresses as well…so easy to throw on and go…and of course my stretchy pants and shorts for hot weather! Thanks for stopping by! Love you site!

  4. HA, I think I’m allergic to jeans too! Jeans shopping is the worst. And I agree, how does Giada do it?! These cookies look amazing – I love PB, can’t wait to try them out!!

    • Chelsy says:
