Pumpkin Chia Protein Bars

Happy Friday! Or shall I say Fri-YAY!!

I hope everyone had a productive and successful week! It's not exactly over yet, so you still have some time to make it a productive one, if you already haven't. If you have, just sit down and stop being an overachiever. :)
Yesterday was picture day at Sophia's school. If you saw her picture last year you're probably having a good laugh down memory lane. She was mean muggin' that camera like nobody's business. When I picked her up from school, I asked her if she smiled for the camera this time. She assured me that she did! 

Some of yesterday's events were a bit overwhelming and I think I had a mini anxiety attack. Nothing bad...some good, big things happening! But to calm down, I got in the kitchen and baked. 

Today started off great, but what isn't great when you start it with Pumpkin Chia Protein Bars?!
