In a land of Peanut Butter.

It’s Friday.

Let us rejoice and be glad! I apologize for the church hymnal reference…it’s probably because I went to private school my entire life. Oh, and Friday was always a mass day.

As a young girl, I was always front and center in church choir and I absolutely loved it.

Clad in my blue checkered jumper, matching headband, and navy Keds.

I even sang in my high school choir.

Then, when I became a senior in high school I developed a huge case of senior-itis.

I’m not even joking…it was soooooo bad I would make excuses for myself to miss Friday night football games.

It wasn’t like I was a spectator, I was head cheerleader and skipping football games to go to the movies with friends wasn’t exactly role model behavior.

Haha. You know what? I wouldn’t change that for the world. The skipping football games part, that is.

Plus, our football team was a disgrace to humanity.

How did I get off on this tangent?

Maybe my point is to rejoice that I’m no longer in high school.

It’s all about the adult life now.

I make big girl decisions.

Like, if I want to take a shower at 5, get in my p.j.’s, and watch lifetime movies on a Thursday night after I eat dinner at 6…you are damn straight I will.

Because lifetime movies are totally real life, right?

Yep.

Especially the movies about a wrongly convicted woman who escapes from prison and becomes one of America’s most wanted fugitives.

But of course I only watched it because the lead actress was Jenna Dewan Tatum and she was is totally my idol in the movie Step Up.

Plus, the fact that Channing Tatum is her baby daddy isn’t too shabby either 😉

Being an adult also means that I can choose to eat peanut butter at every meal.

By now, we all know that I have an addiction.

Peanut butter completes me.

These muffins are supreme snackage/breakfast/lunch/dinner-ish muffins.

IMG_1471

I dream of a land of peanut butter, honey, milk, and oatmeal.

IMG_1472

These muffins encompass all of those things.

So, I guess you could say that they are a little piece of heaven.

IMG_1476

Yep, peanut butter, honey, oatmeal heaven.

IMG_1478

I’m pretty sure God knows about peanut butter.

Hopefully I can count on him to have some for me whenever I reach those pearly gates.

I should probably stop watching reality trash t.v. first though.

IMG_1484

I am just going to blame it on my early childhood spent watching Soap Opera’s with my mom.

IMG_1485

I didn’t care what was on t.v., as long as my mom made me a turkey, cheese, and mayo on whole wheat.

IMG_1487

I definitely miss those days.

IMG_1488

Simplicity at it’s best.

IMG_1490

Where my healthy food obsession came from…I have no idea.

IMG_1493

All I know if that these muffins have a melt in your mouth creamy peanut butter flavor that

IMG_1495

makes me feel sorry for those sad suckers allergic to peanuts.

Whoever you are, you probably have a strong dislike for me at the moment.
