Sunny Weather and Peanut Butter Balls

What beautiful weather we are having! Today has been so hot, we have been waiting for summer for what feels like ages.

Poor Stella has been teething terribly, 2 canines and 2 molars are all coming through. This has brought with it bad nights and her getting terribly upset at times during the day.  Friday night saw us only getting a few hours sleep, we thought the whole weekend was going to be a write off but we actually had a lovely one, helped of course by the nice weather.  On Saturday we managed to get Stella napping in the buggy and had lunch outside in Holywood followed by letting her have a play in the park, Sunday was spent at Delamont.  All in all a success I would say.

Check out that view at Delamont. Stella is so crazy for her Daddy, he can do nothing wrong its so sweet.

Look at Stella's little face in this photo. She is such a big girl for her age and usually so independent.  This was Saturday after our terrible night, she was clingy and tired.  This photo breaks my heart a little!

Since having our girl my husband and I have come to rely on a evening treat.  Once we put Stella to bed out come some biscuits, cups of tea or possibly some crisps along with something to watch on Netflix.  This is totally okay but not when your doing it every single night and the quantities are increasing!  During the day our eating is fine, I enjoy cooking so dinners are always homemade and healthy so thats not a problem its just these evening treats that need knocked on a head!

I have a terrible sweet tooth and I always used to make sweet healthy treats from Madeline Shaw's book. I started again last week and I have been enjoying these Peanut Butter Energy Balls (which are a Ella Woodward recipe) every evening.  They are delicious and much better for me than some super high sugar cookies!

Somebody likes the look of them!

These are so easy to make and I would recommend them.  The recipe is HERE if your interested.

Enjoy the rest of the sunshine you guys :-)
