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!


  1. Those energy bites (and cookies) look so yummy! I'll have to try to make some over the next few weeks! :)

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Congratulations on baby #2! Super exciting!
    Those cookies look amazing! I'll have to try those out. I make those energy bites all the time too! They are the perfect little snack.
    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!
