So….dang it’s hard to get out of pj’s after you’ve been in them for 5 days am I right?!?! Goodness we had a fabulously lazy Thanksgiving weekend. I love it when nothing is on the calendar and we can just chill….and chill we did. We decorated and baked and watched movies (A Gift Wrapped Christmas on Lifetime is a front runner right now for the sappiest and cutest Holiday movie…but of course time will tell..) Ahhhh….it was so much fun. Back to reality…sort of…hubs and I leave for the beach on Wednesday for a little R&R….excited to see the beach:)
You know I am a sucker for a good party favor….I have done several in the past. I like to switch it up a bit:) Found this easy recipe for beer bread and some cool local brew bottles….a crowd pleaser too with the men and ladies;) These would make great neighbor gifts too…for not much cash:) I even did all the hard work for you and made you a printable to print out and attach:) I’m so nice….
This is a sponsored post for the Acorn Box. I have been compensated for my time and efforts in writing this post. All thoughts, pictures, opinions and errors are mine all mine:)
I get to work with some pretty cool companies in my job and this is one of the most fun projects I was asked to be on. Back in the summer time my daughter really wanted to purchase a Nutri Ninja. She was wanting to try out some of the smoothie recipes that we had seen on the web. We spent a lot of the summer experimenting with this fun machine that makes it really easy to be healthy but at the same time is such a quick tool to have in your kitchen. I was asked to participate in this media campaign with a Acorn box…and they ended up sending me a new Nutri Ninja…along with some other great products for the kitchen. I knew right away what I wanted to share with you. This make-ahead Quick Quiche in a mug recipe is perfect for busy school mornings.
Hey Yall! How was your Halloween? It was suppose to rain but it held off until later…ended up being a perfect night. We were those people who left the bowl of candy…along with a note that stated the honor code ” take 2 leave some for others.” We came home and the bowl was empty….as expected I suppose. We had a nice dinner out and went to a friends firepit….great night. So different than Halloween’s of years past. Our kiddos both had plans…so it all worked out well:)
This recipe is a perfect way to spend a cozy fall morning with a cup of hot joe. I may or may not be slightly or definitely addicted to Amazon Prime. Do you have that problem? I have had Amazon Prime for about 2 years now so it’s not like it’s anything new…. but occasionally I will go on there to buy like batteries or pencils ….whatever I need and then something pops up on my screen and I click on it and I’m like yeah I totally want that even though I wasn’t originally shopping for it I totally need that.
Good gravy I cannot believe it is Halloween week already! October has flown by! We have been busy…the end of the month snuck up on us. After coming home from DC my hubs has fought a fever all week. He got a horrible sore throat and cold and suffered through it all last week. Unfortunately when you own your own company there is no paid time off….he has to work….which is why it is taking awhile for him to feel better. He was a trooper on Friday evening….as I has our family pictures planned for 6:00. I am so excited to see the photos. We haven’t had our family pictures taken (other than the ones I have taken) in 6 years…..it was kind of nice to not have to worry about the other side of the camera. Of course planning what to wear for the pics was a whole other ball of wax. I was going for a bit more sophistication since our kids are young adults now….can’t wait to see how they came out!!
I thought I would share with you a yummy treat to whip up for Halloween night. This is the easiest dip ever! Cooks for 2-3 hours on low and you literally just dump everything in the slow cooker. I used my mini cooker but if you are making for a crowd just double it and put it all in a regular slow cooker. Serve it up with chips or bread…actually it quite healthy!
** BE SURE to comment at bottom of post….I may just send you $100 for sharing with me…**
My dad was in international sales when I was growing up. This job required him to travel quite a bit. When I was little and adults asked me what my dad did for a living….I would tell them that he worked at the airport—because every Friday and Sunday we would pick him up and take him back. He was a hard worker, and weekends were spent filled with family time. That is when we would build projects and play. Since he traveled most weeknights, my mom was left with dinnertime duties, along with everything else like homework, activities, school projects, play dates…everything. She too was a hard worker :) My mom never ever ever failed to put a meal together and have dinner on the table for all of us. I grew up knowing that mealtime was family time. It was a top priority. You don’t answer the phone, you don’t answer the door, and the TV is off. You talk, you share, you find out how everyone’s day went. We still hold dinnertime very sacred. We sit down to the table every week night.
