Stress =


When I need to de-stress, de-gunkify, I bake. It's kinda my passion. Sometimes a passion I wish I pursued a long time ago.

But for now, I enjoy doing it for me. For my boys and my family. And my sanity.

This has been a long week of training clients, long pool days (and no they are not relaxing w/ a 3 yr. old boy), swim classes, actually cooking dinner, and just not enough "me" time.

So, I decided to bake. Will and I are going to my sister's tomorrow for a fun day of shopping and pool time (which will be somewhat relaxing because cousin Lilly can't wait to play w/ Will). Bbqing and getting to spend time with my sister who most definitely is my best friend, is exactly what I need.

Okay. It's not gourmet baking throwing in food coloring to turn rice crispy treats blue, but it is fun!

Yummy chocolate chip cookies with blue and red m&m's that Will helped me pick out. Where is the holiday mix of m&m's when you REALLY need them? Looked everywhere!

Finished, and oh so delicious to this pregnant momma and little bubsy! Not gonna lie, we each ate one when they were still warm. It's the best way to eat it!

Like my mom always said, "When you cook or bake with love, everything will turn out delicious and perfect." It definitely did mom!

Another de-stresser for the weekend, Lew is off on Sunday and Monday! So happy and excited to get to spend time with the hubster and actually get to snuggle on the couch.

3 hours tell bedtime and my dvr filled with, So You Think You Can Dance, a couple Housewives episodes, Amsale Girls (gotta see these amazing wedding dresses) is just calling my name!

Happy Friday and hope you and your families have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend!

Good for you! I love baking too. It's instant gratification to see and smell those goodies in the oven. And I agree, eating chocolate chip/m & m cookies straight from the oven is the best way to eat them!

Hope you have a great July 4th!
