I can not believe how fast this summer is going.  I swear school just got out, but we are already past the 4th of July!  Did you have a good long weekend for the 4th?  We were in Wisconsin with family, so it was nice to relax and spend time with everyone.  We flew back on Monday and are still getting adjusted.  Getting home at midnight really messes with my 10 year old!  But I think we are caught up and good now.  I even went grocery shopping, created a meal plan, and have this week under control.  Which after almost 2 weeks away, is kind of huge for me.  Hopefully I can just keep it up :)

Today is the last day of the school year for my 10 year old!  I can not believe that I am going to have a 5th grader.  I know everyone says this, but seriously, where did the time go?  We are going to be entering our last year of elementary school.  I swear my little guy should still be in pre-school! To celebrate we are meeting a ton of kids from school at the park for a picnic lunch, and cake. Then they can run and go crazy.  Now let’s just hope the rain stays away.

Memorial Day weekend is here.  I really thought we had another week, but nope, it is this weekend.  Do you have plans? I hope the weather can warm up and dry up, so that we might actually get to get outside and enjoy it.  My son is obsessed with fishing lately, so I am sure that will be one of his requests.  His other?  Tennis.  He used some of his money to buy a tennis racket, and wants to play all of the time!  My plans will likely including breaking out the grill and if I am lucky doing some baking.

I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving, and enjoyed a nice long weekend.  We traveled to Wisconsin to spend the holiday with our family.  It was nice to take a week off, enjoy time with family, and just relax.  While we were there we took our 9 year old to see his first Wisconsin Badger game.  They were playing for the Big Ten Western Division Title against Minnesota.  It was a close game, but we ended up winning.  The weather was as good as you could hope for during the end of November, so it was the perfect day.  Now our 9 year old is set on going to school in Madison, so he can go to all of their games.

Are you ready for the holiday baking season? It is pretty much upon us.  I have to admit, I am not quite ready.  This year has just gone by far too quickly, I want it to slow down a little!  But today, I am here with a special treat for you.  I have mentioned Katrina from In Katrina’s Kitchen before.  She is one of my very dear friends in this blogging world.  We were roommates at a conference earlier this year, and I was able to visit her when I was in Ohio a few weeks ago.  So this post is kind of special to me today.  In case you didn’t know Katrina came out with a cookbook (The Biscoff Cookie & Spread Cookbook)!!!  She worked so hard on this book, and it is gorgeous and so full of great recipes.

So now that we are after Labor Day, I think all the kids are officially back to school.  We have been in school for 2 weeks now, and I can finally say I think we are getting back into a routine.  I love summer, and am not ready for cold temperatures or that white stuff, but I am happy to have our routine back.   My 9 year old is happy to be back in school too.  He may miss his free time, and getting to play all the time.  But he loves to go to school, and see his friends, and have structure.  So this time of year is great for everyone!

No Bake Peanut Butter Cheesecake - creamy peanut butter cheesecake, Oreo crust, chocolate ganache and peanut butter cup Oreo's!

Going on vacation is always so much fun, but getting back is so much work!  All the laundry, the work, the cleaning, and everything else.  Plus, I am actually heading out on another trip this weekend.  My 9 year old and I are headed back to the Mid-West to see family for a week.  So much for a lazing and relaxing summer!  A little worried about how much I should get done ahead of time for my husband.  I hate to see what he is going to do for a full week of meals on his own!  But just because people are busy, doesn’t mean there isn’t time for desserts!  Especially no bake desserts, that come together in under 20 minutes.

I hope that everyone had a great 4th of July weekend!  We were busy spending time with friends, going to a Colorado Rockies game, getting in a good hike, going on a bike ride, and getting to watch fireworks.  It was so much fun, but kind of exhausting at the same time!  I kind of need a nap just thinking of all that we accomplished in the last 3 days.  Or at least a good solid week of relaxation!  Or maybe just movie night, where I can doze off a little :)  Make sure you get to the bottom for a great giveaway that involves free movies!
