Key Lime Pie Bars

Hey guys :) Hope you're enjoying the weekend! I apologize for no post yesterday. After work I taught Body Attack and then Josh and I tried a new place for dinner. The lighting inside was terrible and...so was the food :(. So, I figured it wasn't really worth posting about anyways.

Today has been fabulous! I got up and taught Body Step, ran a few errands, went to the pool, watched Eagle Eye with Josh, and made up Maria's AMAZING key lime pie bars.


Please excuse the poor presentation- this was the first slice out and you know that first slice is always a little messy ;). The recipe can be found here. I made these special for Josh as key lime pie is his absolute favorite dessert. Its our 2 year wedding anniversary on Tuesday and he will be on a business trip, so I figured I'd let him celebrate a bit early ;). I am hoping he can finish a few slices before he leaves, and then I plan to freeze the rest for him to enjoy at a later time (fingers crossed that it freezes well)!

Not sure whats on tap for tonight. What are you doing?

Key lime- my favorite! And happy early anniversary! As for my plans... I'm done for the night. Hah. I was in the sun all day, swimming and hanging out on the dock, then went out to dinner. I'm totally beat! Ah I am such an old woman.
