Weekend Indulging, New purchases & Raw Cookies

Hey everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. I like to indulge a little on the weekends, but it's back to business during the week, regarding my eating habits, of course. Sometimes I take a break of exercise and relax a bit more on the weekends, sometimes that is because I am staying up too late and exercising my arms, by drinking! hahaha. All the more reason why I should exercise but, sometimes I just don't feel like it, so I just don't.

Last week I had a sweet craving so I indulged a little in some Raw Oatmeal Cookies. Recipe from Averie at Love Veggies and Yoga.

Combined everything in the Vita-Mix
and roll into balls
Then I like to flatten them with a large spoon, with raisins on top.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
1/2 C Oats
1/4 C pitted dates
1/4 C raisins
dash of cinnamon
I used Vanilla Stevia as well (very small amount)

Put oats in blender first, blend.
Add Dates and rest of ingredients and blend again
Take our your cookie dough and shape into balls.

These defiantely satisfied the sweet tooth and are a healthy snack!

You can refer to Averie's recipe here and follow her directions if you like.

As far as other things I did this weekend, I had my new couch delivered. I thought this giant wasn't going to fit into my living room. But it did and I love it. Now I need to buy a new tv.

This couch is a monster, it has a pull out bed next to the chaise lounge as well.

The dogs will not be sleeping on this. I am making sure of it. Keeping them out of that room when I am at work during the day (they have a bed down in the basement, that they sleep on during the day) and making sure they aren't hopping on it when I am home. haha

Hope you have a great week!
