Christmas movies, cookies, and toes

on December 22, 2012

Morning my friends!  And how are you this Saturday morning?   I have been up exactly two hours.   Well, two hours and 10 minutes.  Smile   I dug out some Christmas movies yesterday and got started on them.  Now before you think that I have been stuck in front of the tv, they have been pretty short.


  1. ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas
  2. The Christmas Cottage
  3. The Polar Express
  4. Yes Virginia, There is a Santa Claus
  5. A Christmas Carol (Jim Carrey)
  6. The Holiday



I tried to multi-task while doing this and was able to bake some cookies, wrap presents and clean the toilets.   Winking smile




I found this recipe at the Lean Green Bean…   Healthier Peanut Butter Blossoms 


Healthier Peanut Butter Blossoms

Ingredients (2 1/2 dozen)

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar or honey
  • 2 Tbsp. applesauce
  • 2 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 cup oats
  • Hershey kisses


  1. 1. Combine the first 7 ingredients in a bowl and stir until well combined.
  2. 2. Add in the flour, baking powder, and oats and stir until just mixed.
  3. 3. Put the bowl in the freezer for 20-30 minutes.
  4. 4. Roll the dough into small balls and place on a greased baking sheet.
  5. 5. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 minutes.
  6. 6. Remove from the oven and press a Hershey kiss into each cookie.
  7. 7. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and let cool completely



I didn’t have any white whole wheat flour, so I put 1/2 cup of white flour and then a half a cup of whole wheat.  They turned out great!!




So yesterday I told you that I gave myself a pedicure at midnight….



I’m not really a fan of feet, so posting this picture was difficult.  Winking smile 







Went to an oldie but goody..   English muffin, almond butter, banana and chia seeds.  Coffee on the side.



Yesterday I also had to baby sit my parents children…  other children that is…



Lucas and Sophie.  Lucas loves to sport Pink! 





We didn’t stay in town very long, but Sophie was pretty sleepy by the time we were headed home. 






Amy Dixon has a new Tabata workout!  If you have never done one of her workouts, you really need to check it out. 







Welp, I hope you guys have a great day!
