  • Par 3 Golf

    Back in Pittsburgh, I happily tagged along when Ari and his dad would go golfing. I rode in the golf cart taking in the beautiful sceneryΒ  stuffing my face with all the snacks I managed to fit in my bag all while trying to take cute selfies with my then fiancΓ©. πŸ˜‰ But now I was expected to actually play?! YIKES

    Ari knows my patience for golf is pretty much nonexistent, so we went to a Par 3 golf course. I have proven my LOVE for this sport multiple times over the years with the numerousΒ @#$*&^Β  kind words that escaped my mouth during mini golf. Since we moved away from home, I needed to put my wife pants on and play golf with my husband. So Saturday evening we went to play golf.

    I’ll have to admit it was pretty fun, especially, since we were the only ones at the course. I was able to hit the ball as often as a I wanted, without ‘serious’ golfers breathing down my neck. Luckily all the balls I shot into the woods or into the lake were balls we had found on the course, so I am proud to say I lost none of my hubby’s balls. πŸ™‚ I definitely would like to go back and who knows maybe ill work my way up to a real golf course! (Proud to announce my golf etiquette has improved as well)

  • Breakfast cookies

    Ari and I are both breakfast lovers. On the weekends we indulge with breakfast potatoes, omelets, pancakes, waffles and ice cream crepes (not all at once, don’t worry!). During the week, however, we both have to get up relatively early, so we typically just grab something quick to eat. Ari usually just eats a bagel and I like to switch it up with either some sort of oatmeal, cereal or toast. Lately I’ve been making baked oatmeal on Sunday night so that I have something prepared for the whole week. A coworker of mine had mentioned an oatmeal cookie that she makes when she is craving something sweet, and so I decided to try it out. And boy were they delicious!! I know these will be my go to breakfast for the rest of the week and Ill probably keep making them for weeks to come!

    They are relatively healthy and have no added sugar! Here is the recipe:

    Take 3 ripe bananas and mash them in a mixing bowl (I used a potato masher). Add 1/3 cup of applesauce (unsweetened), 1 tsp of vanilla, 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk and 1/2 cup of chocolate chips (or dried fruit, coconut, etc) If you want you can add 1 tsp of cinnamon as well (I left this out, because lately I cannot stand the taste of cinnamon, CRAZY cause I used to love it on everything!) Mix well and then spoon onto a baking sheet with parchment paper. Bake at 350 for 15-25 minutes (Cooking time will vary depending on how thick you make the cookies. I was being lazy and made mine relatively thick since I didn’t want to prepare another baking sheet. Mine took approximately 25-30 minutes ( I am extremely bad at remembering to set a timer, so I just kinda guess)).

    These cookies are very filling! I am excited to have Ari try these!( I just cant tell him they have bananas in them πŸ˜‰ )

    Now I am craving breakfast potatoes and omelets… so looks like that’s what’s for dinner!

    I’d love to hear about your go to breakfast!

  • Charleston

    After we walked along the beach of the ocean course, we headed to Charleston. Charleston is absolutely beautiful! We window shopped, filled our tummies with ice cream, sampled our way through chocolate desserts and took in all the historic beauty of this little town. After our little feet got tired, we ate dinner and made our way back home.

    The Charleston City Market had lots of neat crafts
