PB Dip Recipe

Today Hallie turned 7 and I let her pick our plans for the day. They included a picnic at a nearby beach area, so for a special treat, I made this dip to go with our apple slices. Super yummy and easy!

Clean Eating Peanut Butter Fruit Dip
1/2 cup peanut butter (I used Smucker's natural chunky)
1/2 cup non-fat Greek yogurt (didn't have greek; used regular)
2 tbsp. honey
1/4 cup non-fat milk (omitted completely)
2 tbsp. flax or chia seeds (I used flax) Whisk everything together until you have a smooth, creamy dip. Serve with fruit such as apples or strawberries. 
Delish! :)

life is good...

...and then it gets better! this was the email address of a friend of mine in STL. it's pretty long to type, but what a great reminder, every time you write your email address!

life has been good lately. busy but really good! i hardly miss facebook at all, and after i switched to blogging like a fiend to make up for it, i quickly re-fell off that bandwagon to the depths of no-social-media-ness. well except for words with friends. that i will never give up. ;)

In the last few days...

I went to Philly on Saturday and got my nose pierced. Never underestimate the power of a girls day out! :D

Hallie lost her 6th tooth and daddy the tooth fairy pulled through! Madeleine (the tooth fairy) has been less than consistent in lost-teeth-past (thanks to mama's memory.)

In Philly I went to Max Brenner's chocolate restaurant and had marshmallow-y hot milk chocolate from a "hug mug". My life is so much better having experienced that amazingness.

My wonderful in-laws left today after a week-long visit. I am so blessed to have the best in-laws ever! Seriously, you think yours are great; you have nothing on mine. My mother-in-law painted this for me while they were here, and it's hanging on our bedroom wall. Isn't it gorgeous?! I love it!!!

Having been off facebook for an eternity, I have picked up a new social medium addiction: Instagram. Follow me (mamasarah4) for on-the-go pics of my life! I love it-- I'm a pretty bad photographer, but Instagram ma…
