Peanut Butter Things.

Is it really Monday?

Well, actually it is really Sunday evening.

At least that is when I am writing this.

Let’s just say I have a belly full of dinner and these little peanut buttery things I’m about to share with you.

This past week I burned  trashed my 2 year old house shoe boots.

They were so comfortable and I donned them in my p.j.’s every single night until the soles were ripped wide open and my slippers were “talking.”

It was tough to move on, but I’m a new woman.

Flaxseed is also changing my life.

Well, it is basically rocking my little cooking/baking world.

Watch out vegan desserts, I am coming for you.

Let’s continue on this flax train w/ some 3-ingredient bars.

Say what now?

YUP!

Y’all know how I feel about peanut butter, so you can imagine how I wrapped my brain around this one.

IMG_1196

INSANITY.

On another note…I have lost my ever-loving mind.

Went to the store to get Princess some dog food.

Only I accidentally overlooked the package which was labeled “puppy food.”

IMG_1201

Yep, she’s pretty much a 14-year-old Yorkie. Definitely not a puppy.

IMG_1203

Whoops.

IMG_1206

I mean, that would be like someone serving me IN-N-OUT instead of Whataburger.

IMG_1214

Clearly not the same thing. IN-N-OUT is a crime. I’m a Texan y’all…WHAT-A-BURGER is where it’s at.

IMG_1209

Thankfully, she still ate the food.

IMG_1216

If I could just feed her peanut butter cookies we would all be better off.

A girl can dream can’t she?
