No-Bake Energy Bites

I finally got around to making these No-Bake Energy Bites.  I mean what's not to love about chocolate, peanut butter and honey?  

1 cup (dry) old-fashioned oats
2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup ground flax seed (I used whole)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup honey or agave nectar
1 tablespoon chia seeds (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. Cover and let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour.

Once chilled, roll into balls about 1" in diameter. Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.

Makes about 20-25 balls.

They're a great treat that you can actually feel good about eating.

The Bergdorf Goodman Cookbook would be a fun gift for a friend that likes to cook.   

We couldn't be happier with our UPPAbaby Vista stroller and it seems like everywhere I go someone asks about it. 

Reese Witherspoon just launched Draper James, a clothing and accessories line. When I saw the cocktail napkins, it made me think of her rule is if it's not moving, monogram it

Jeep is scheduled to release a new Grand Wagoneer in 2018 that has 3-row seating.

First Horse Race

April has been a month of "firsts" and a total joy as we got to know our daughter. I already feel like we've climbed a mountain in terms of being new parents.

The Lilly Pulitzer for Target 250-piece collection launches, today. There have been a lot of mixed feelings regarding this collection on social media. Some people feel like Lilly is selling out in terms of the brand's integrity. I wasn't surprised by this collaboration at all. The quality of many Lilly accessories look like items you would find at Target but without the Target price tags. 

I’m assuming the quality of the #LillyForTarget clothing won't be as nice as their regular line? The tableware and outdoor entertaining accessories look darling and I’m sure the price points will be very pleasing. What are your thoughts on the #TargetForLilly collaboration?

Patricia's House

I couldn't wait for the new season of Southern Charm to air. I just love seeing glimpses of  Patrcia Altschul's home that was decorated by Mario Buatta.

Check out the piece from Architectural Digest for more fabulous images.
