Weekend Recap: Snow Day, No-Bake Baking, and Monogram Love

Happy Monday, from the snowy Northeast!  Hope everyone is staying warm and safe...we are all snuggled up in our pajamas, and watching the snowfall outside.  It's quite pretty when you're on the inside looking out ;)

We had a cold and lazy weekend around here, but we managed to get outside and play a little too.  Andrew wasn't quite sure what to think of the white fluffy stuff!
But he liked taking the eyes on and off of our super-cute snowman. 

Once we couldn't feel our fingers and toes anymore, we headed back inside to get warm.  
And to play (and eat!) the rest of the weekend away!  

Andrew has been loving his new monogrammed PB Kids chair!  Thank you Mimi and Papa D for the wonderful Christmas gift!  It's the perfect size, and Andrew can fit all his friends inside too ;)

Another monogrammed item that just came in the mail - 
How cute is this for summer?  I can just picture Andrew romping around in this number at the beach :)   
(Ordered off of a Facebook group resale page!)

Lazy day reading with the boys...

I've been trying to drink tons of water lately, after being so sick last week.  A huge mason jar with sliced lemons and a pretty straw is my favorite way to drink it.

I was able to sneak away for a girl's dinner out during the weekend, which was fabulous and much needed!  We went to the new Seasons 52, and had such a wonderful time!
My seared sea scallops were amaaaaaaazing.

Sunday morning, I decided to try making these bite-sized energy balls.  They were so easy to make, and incredibly yummy!  (see recipe below!)

No-Bake Energy Balls

1 cup dry oats
1/2 cup peanut (or almond) butter
1/2 cup coconut flakes (optional)
1/4 cup flax seed (or 1 tbsp chia seeds)
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (or raisins)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla

MIX all ingredients.  CHILL for 45 minutes.
ROLL into balls.  ENJOY!
(refrigerate leftover balls)

*As you can see, there are many modifications you can make - feel free to make them according to what your family likes!*

Hope y'all had a great weekend too!  
Is it snowing where you are??
