Happy Friday!!!

I’ve been meaning to post daily, but with Brent being away, I’m solo with work, house duties, dogs and of course Sienna, so time is limited.  I know what the single mom’s are feeling like this week!!!

I was so tired this morning that I slept in.  I have a hard time going to bed early lately, so much stuff on the brain!! I’m going to try and get a workout in later today.  I did do my leg workout yesterday AM which was great.  My legs are a bit sore today.  I did it in the middle of my living room so all my neighbors could drive by and see LOL!  But I was in my ugly pajamas! haha!

OK, so I GIVE IN!!!  I’ll post the recipe!  Lots of comments/messages on my Facebook Page for it…so here it is!!!

I modified the recipe from Tropical Traditions website.

Drop by Tablespoon onto waxed paper.  Store in freezer for at least 30 minutes

****It will be tempting to eat them before they go in the freezer but WAIT!!!! Have a taste AFTER they’ve been in the freezer for 30 minutes!!!!!
