Mom Monday {Breakfast Cupcakes}

0comments

I had such a fun time cooking with Piper this weekend I just had to share. I was inspired by this recipe for Apricot Pecan Breakfast bars, to create something that we could have on hand for an easy breakfast. Piper loves anything in cupcake form and recently began helping me cook. It’s such a fun thing for us to do together.

These are great to cook with the kids. I measure things out, then she dumps them in the bowls and stirs everything around. Then, the best part, she gets to lick the spoon! I have such fond memories of doing this with my grandmother. The key is to make something delicious and healthy. These are the perfect breakfast. They have fruits, nuts, antioxidants, oats, and they taste delicious!!

The bananas and dates act as the sweetener, so there is no need to add sugars of any kind!

Mom Monday {a busy bee weekend}

0comments

Well this weekend was full of activity. Our whole family came in to town for Piper’s first dance recital, followed by her birthday party, and then a father’s day celebration! Now I don’t know if any of you have experienced this, but confessions from a mom, I had knots in my stomach all morning the day of her recital. I know it may sound silly, but I was definitely more nervous than she was. From being the shyest one in her class, and sometimes just stopping and looking around at everyone else dancing, rather than dancing, I wasn’t sure what she would do on that big stage. Well let me just tell you it turned out more amazing than I could have imagined!! She knew all her dance moves, and when the dance was over, and the rest of her friends exited the stage, Piper stayed on stage!!! For several minutes! Just soaking it up as the audience went crazy, clapping, laughing…it was hysterical!! I am such a proud mama, so I just thought I would share that personal moment with you guys. Happy mom Monday. xoxo
