How did we end up in November? It’s the 2nd to last month of 2016 and I swear this entire year has been a blur. I will admit, I am kind of excited how fast it’s going because I’m selfish and I just want our new house to be completed :) a little over five months left!

Now that it’s November, have you started thinking about your Thanksgiving day menu? To be honest, I haven’t thought about it at all. I actually have been thinking more about Christmas gifts for people more than I have been about Thanksgiving.

OMG speaking of Christmas and holidays…

I signed up for a gift wrapping workshop at Paper Source.

YES, I do not know how to adult. I am THE WORST present wrapper you will ever meet. I can easily overlap the wrapping paper and have it tight over the package but the ends? Haha, it’s pathetic. I literally scrunch it up and put a bunch of tape over it. It comes out all lumpy and pretty much looks like a two year old did it. Actually, no, I think a two year old would do a far better job than I would.

I know, I know. I can use gift bags and that’s usually what I do but I feel like at some point in my life I need to learn how to properly wrap a present and more specifically a box. I am turning 30 in a couple months after all…I think it’ll be a fun class to take with one of my girl friends. She apparently loves to wrap presents though lol

Pumpkin pie energy balls! You’ll need these for Thanksgiving day ;)

But really, if you’re doing a low-key Thanksgiving and don’t want to do a pie, you could easily roll up these balls as your sweet treat. Or, if you’re going to a large party and you are watching your sugar intake, you could bring a plastic baggy of a few of these balls to snack on while dessert is being served. Or, these are a great seasonal snack for pre or post workout!

A naturally sweetened seasonal snack that will curb that sweet tooth when you need to!

Ingredients
  • 12 medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 1/4 cup pecans
  • 1/4 cup heaping old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 heaping teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Instructions
  1. Add all the ingredients into the bowl of a powerful food processor and process until mixture is easily formed in the palm of your hands when you squeeze it together.
  2. If the mixture is too crumbly, the dates might be too dry so soak a few dates in water for 10-15 minutes then process those dates and mix into the mixture with a spatula.
  3. Form mixture into balls by using a medium cookie scoop to scoop out the mixture (to have uniform/same size balls) into the palm of your hands then squeeze and roll!
  4. Repeat until all the mixture has been used.

    I can’t wait to hear about your gift wrapping class! Seriously, I used to wrap my family’s presents all the time and wanted to take a class, but never had time. I am secretly excited for you. Anyway, eight weeks until XMAS. I need these energy balls stat!
