Graduated!

5.26.2015

My sister, Erin's, graduation was the first of the crazy events happening last week! We celebrated this darling girl in the yellow dress all day long. Graduation ceremonies (always longer than I remember ;), family dinners, and darling decor from my darling mother. So excited for Erin and all her upcoming adventures! (like a three week trip to three different countries in Europe. These younger children get away with so much more than I ever did. ;) Ha!)

-When sitting at a light that just turned green and no one has started driving yet: “Come on people, drive!”
-After completing any chore or task “We did it, we did it, oh yeah yeah yeah.”
-When she wants to stay up later than her bedtime, she clasps her hand together, bats her eyes (seriously), and in a high pitched voice says “Preeeeetty please?”
-If her previous attempts did not work and she’s crying about going to bed “I think I need a timeout.”
-When wearing anything that resembles a cape “I super Ellie, here to save the day!”
-
If we (or she) isn’t smiling “Hey Mr. Grumpy Gills. Just keep swimming, just keep swimming. Ha ha ha ha ha OH, I looove to swwwwim!”

No Bake Peanut Butter Bars

No Bake Peanut Butter Bars

If you’re looking for a super easy, super delicious, super sinful dessert, look no further! These no bake peanut butter bars are insanely delicious and so easy to make (no oven required!) They make a decent amount, perfect for summer parties, delivering to the neighbors, or eating for a midnight snack. ;) I won’t tell you how many I ate on this last batch, they’re just that good!

peanut butter bars recipe (1) 

Ingredients:

1 cup butter, melted
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup + 3 tablespoons peanut butter
1 1/2-2 cups chocolate chips

Directions:
Line 9x13 pan with tinfoil or wax paper. Mix together melted butter, graham crackers, powdered sugar, and 1 cup peanut butter in a bowl. Add mixture to the lined pan and spread evenly on bottom. Melt chocoalte chips and remaining peanut butter in microwave. (Be sure to only warm in 15-30 second increments and stir in between!) I prefer mine to have a little more chocolate, so I like using 2 cups of chocolate chips. Spread melted chocoalte over peanut mixture in the pan. Place in fridge for 1-2 hours. To cut, take the mixture and liner out of the pan for easy cutting!

*I prefer to keep these in the fridge so the chocolate doesn’t melt or get too soft when sitting out!
