So less than a week til Christmas!!  Is everyone ready??  I hope so :)  Well this past weekend was definitely packed with tons of festive happenings.  Friday we made Christmas cookie cutouts (sorry.. no healthy alternative here, all sugar cookie, hey it's Christmas!).  The kids did the decorating and loaded the cookies with more than enough frosting and sprinkles, OY!  All in all they turned out pretty good, I'm sure Santa will enjoy them ;)  But don't worry.... I threw in a healthy option for ya (of course!).  Shakeology balls!  Funny name, but oh so good to taste!  Really, it almost seems like I should feel guilty for eating them they are soooo good!  The recipe will be at the end of this post, def. check it out!
Saturday morning, we turbo'd like crazy with jingle bells tied to our kicks, SO FUN & FESTIVE!  Everyone enjoyed it and I even brought some Shakeology balls to share with my class afterwards :)  Later that night, Tony and I had an adult night out, we headed downtown for a Christmas themed bar crawl, good times, I even wore my candy canes!  I had an elf hat for Tony, but Scrooge was against wearing it in public, good thing I got a pic at home LOL ;)
Sunday we had TWO family get togethers, talk about a BUSY day.  Enjoyable for sure though!  My favorite part of the holidays is being with the families, they all truly mean so much to me :)

Well.. this is probably my last post until after Christmas, so from the bottom of my heart, from me to you, I sincerely hope ALL of you have a wonderful Christmas.  God bless each and every one of you.  Love you guys! 

Shakelogy Treat!
What You  Need:
8 Tablespoons PB2 (low fat, high protein powdered peanut butter - get it at www.bellplantation.com

3 Tablespoons Natural Peanut butter (w/flax seeds is the best!)

½ Cup Shakeology Protein Powder (Haven't tried this with another brand of protein powder)

3 Tablespoons Raw Honey

½ Cup Quick Oats

What You Do:
 Mix PB2 with water until it’s a paste like consistency. Mix all ingredients, including the PB2 mixture together in a mixing bowl. It make take some time to blend all of the ingredients together. If it's too sticky, sprinkle in additional protein powder so that it's a pretty dry/crumbly texture.

Roll mixture into small individual balls (about a ping-pong ball size) and place on a wax sheet. Makes about 12 balls, 1 ounce each. Put in freezer until firm.

ENJOY!
