FRIDAY FAVORITES....HELLO MARCH

Well Happy Friday, and Hello March! Can you believe it’s March? I’ve got to say; this week went really fast. My Mr. Nine had a last-minute business trip that thank goodness he got home from last night. A college boy came home last night and we pick my mom up from the airport from her three-week Florida trip tomorrow. I hope you’ve had a wonderful week!! We’re itching closer to the spring time babes.


1. Boy Home
It was nice to enjoy some quality time with one of our college boys this past weekend. And I’m sure many of you saw my Insta stories where this guy requested a sweet treat when he came home of little balls.

2. ENERGY BITES aka "Little Balls"
The little balls he was referring to are my energy bites which I had not made in a while. I was so happy to dig the recipe back out and make these little balls of goodness which give you the best boost of protein. So I thought I would share the recipe here.

 What You'll need

ENERGY BITES
1 cup of oatmeal
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 cup oat flour
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped dates
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Mix this all together and refrigerate for an hour. Remove from the refrigerator and roll into balls, this recipe makes about 20 to 24 balls. They will keep in the refrigerator for a couple weeks but I like them best at room temperature. What I love about these, is they are so customizable. You could add in some protein power, some nuts, any kind of other grain, almond butter, etc. 

ENERGY WELL
And, Speaking of energy, I had the BEST Protein Energy shake at a local Health Store this week called The Energy Well
All Natural and most Shakes are huge, only 175 calories and very low in sugar, using mostly stevia products. Excited to try more.

Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper
If you did not see this performance or one of the many replays from the Oscar ceremony Sunday night, you have no idea what you’re missing! Hands-down one of the best musical performances on the Oscars ever. It will give you chills. 


I hope your weekend is full of good Chills and Lots of Love!

  1. Happy March! Spring is one step closer! Although, I just got an alert that the boys have a delayed opening. It looks like we got some more snow. Those energy bites sound like a great treat and so does that shake. Love that sweatshirt on you! I hope you have the best weekend and enjoy time with your college boy! Sierra Beautifully Candid

  2. I cannot believe it is March already. It's been feeling this year took off running...literally! I make similar protein balls, they are my favorite snack! Not only healthy but easy to make. Both my hubby and son loves them too which makes it a winner. That blonde sweatshirt is definitely cute! Love the burgundy color you picked though the white Ashley is wearing is nice and crisp too! Happy Friday Andrea and wishing you a beautiful weekend ahead!
