Sometimes you just need to have a lazy unproductive day to keep your sanity. Which is exactly what I did today. I’ve been a little over-stressed from work lately and finally had a day off with nothing planned and I did exactly that. Nothing. Ok, well not exactly nothing. I did have a morning to night marathon of Season 1 of Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce, which is my new favorite guilty pleasure show.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Somebody please help me!! I’m not kidding, not exaggerating…I CAN NOT STOP EATING THESE! For some reason, because I made them, I don’t feel nearly as guilty as if I were eating the store bought kind. I can’t get over how good these peanut butter cups are. No bake, only 3 ingredients and little mini sizes that are only 100 calories each, so it’s a tiny little snack for your dessert cravings. At least, that’s what I told myself…then my husband and I ate the whole pan…The secret is the coconut oil mixed into the peanut butter, makes it extra creamy.

Antique Coffee Table

My mom refinishes old furniture, which is where I got this DIY bug from. She had an upcoming show and was low on pieces and asked me to shop around some Portland thrift stores to see what I could find. I called her from the Habitat for Humanity Restore to let her know I found this amazing cedar chest that she had to have and it was only $40!!!

Squash Egg-in-the-Hole

I’m beginning to feel like the struggle of juggling the many things I have to do will never go away. No matter how much a plan and schedule, something will always come up to throw things off track or derail the progress. This is just something I’m working on dealing with right now. Trying not to be overwhelmed by all the things I expect myself to get done and not getting frustrated when things don’t go as planned.
