Five on Friday 5/30

Friday, May 30, 2014

So happy to link up with the girls again today for Five on Friday!

Baby #2 will be arriving in the fall!

I'm due in December with baby #2!  Yesterday I told my Principal and the blog world (click here to see that post)- so it's definitely official now! This weekend I'll post my weekly updates so far.

Over Memorial Day weekend we grilled Kebobs and I made this yummy orzo, sugar snaps, and summer squash side dish.  It is soooooo good!

I've made these energy balls twice in the last few weeks.  Such a great snack when I feel a little wave of nausea!

I made Monster Cookies for Memorial Day too.  I got this recipe from my aunt years ago...I know there are a ton of recipes out there.  This one is really good.

1 and 1/2 cups peanut butter
1 stick butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
3 eggs
1 TBSP baking soda
4 and 1/2 cups quick oats
3/4 cups chocolate chips
3/4 cups M & M's
3/4 cups chopped peanuts

Mix and bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes

Countdown to summer!!
5 more days with kids & 5 days of meetings are all that stand between me and the summer.  I absolutely cannot wait.  I haven't done a working mom post lately.  But it's been rough, between Carter yelling "no school" and then screaming at drop off and a few very difficult students it has made the last few months pretty painful and I'm unbelievably happy that the end is in sight!

Happy weekend!

    And yes to summer! I don't get summers off from work, but I'm looking forward to the warm weather and boating season!
    Have a great weekend!
