Key Lime Pie Cocktail!…and some updates

image

Hey guys! I thought I’d pop in and share this yummy cocktail I created for spring. It’s really simple and super refreshing for spring.

1.5 oz pinnacle cake vodka over oice
Fill the rest of the glass with Minute Maid Lime-aide and stir.

Now to the updates. I’m still on track with exercise and cleaned up eating. So far three inches has come off my wiast and I’m a few pounds down! Woo! I say cleaned up cause you already see my little cocktail….all clean all the time is no fun!

Also, I’m working on a little collection of painted furniture and accessories as well as a few hand sewn items. I will be setting up an Etsy shop before summer and hopefully finding a place to consign a few of my peices locally.

If anyone is interested in a custom peice please contact me via Facebook or email me at abacoats@gmail.com

Xoxo,
Alicia

Memorial T-shirt Quilt

Sorry I haven’t been around much guys! My family was in town for a week and now I’m heading into the last leg of deployment. That means we are busy busy preparing for Dad to come home! I’ll keep you guys updated while we go through our exciting transition!

I’ve recently had the pleasure of sewing a memorial quilt for a close friends uncle, who passed away. It is completely made of his t-shirts and I think it turned out beautifully.

Such a touching way to remember someone. I base my blanket on a tutorial from Wellness Mama.

Follow me on Pinterest for other projects I’m tracking!

Trick Your Toddler Healthy Cookies

image

Alright ladies! I took the infamous card board healthy cookie and tweaked so it is actually edible enough to replace an actual cookie. These babies are yummy!

Ingredients:
2 very ripe bananas
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup raisins
1/8 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Spray baking sheet. I use coconut oil cooking spray.
In a standing mixer add first 4 ingredients and stir until well combined and bananas are mashed. Add raisins a mini chocolate chips and stir until evenly mixed.
Scoop two tablespoons of batter into baking sheet and flatten slightly to form a cookie.
Bake for 15 minutes. Cool on cookie rack.

Let me know what you think! And don’t forget to pin me!
