Peanut Butter…that is all.


Just kidding.

But seriously…peanut butter is my middle name.

You all know this.

Yesterday when I asked a group of people if they had any plans for the weekend, one guy replied with, “Yes, I’m going to taste wedding cakes w/ my fiance…in Colorado.” Mind you…we live in Texas.

Turns out he is originally from Colorado where the wedding will be held.

I cannot wrap my mind around paying for a trip to another state just to taste wedding cakes.

It would have to be an EXTREMELY delicious cake.

It wouldn’t hurt if peanut butter was involved.


I added some banana + oats


+ chocolate chips up in thur because


for reaaaaalz…




Plus, these are super duper healthy because of those oats, right?


Sure are.


Oh yes.


You know it.
