Can we talk about household favorites for a minute? Is there a certain dish you make often because your whole family just LOVES it? There’s definitely a few dishes that make their way through the dinner rotation more than once but the one meal that I’m asked to make constantly (often times 3 requests a week!) is BBQ popcorn chicken. The fiancé could eat BBQ popcorn chicken every day for the rest of his life and die happily, with a belly full of it. If you’re looking for something new to make for dinner tonight, give this recipe a try. I promise you your loved ones will ask for more!Continue Reading…
Hey y’all! So I’m totally embarrassed that it’s been so long since the last time I posted. Things have been so hectic lately, by the time I even think about uploading a new blog post my brain hurts a little. No excuses, but that’s my legitimate excuse. To make it up to you guys, I’ve decided I’m going to announce the details of my 2nd giveaway by the end of this month so please stay tuned!!
I’m hoping I’m not the only one in the world who constantly brain farts when it comes to deciding what to make for dinner (and when I say constantly I really mean every. single. damn. night). I love to cook but sometimes I feel like I’m always making the same thing over and over again. Which is the case even tonight, when I decided to whip up some breakfast burritos. Even though I do make these often, we never seem to get tired of them. These are my oldest’s absolute FAVORITE (we will have to keep it a secret that I made these when she’s with her dad. She gets so butthurt if she finds out I made something she likes when she’s not home, lol). I serve these burritos with a creamy chipotle sauce nestled nicely inside to add just the perfect amount of heat (hubby’s fav). What are you making for dinner tonight? If you haven’t made up your mind yet, give these a whirl. I promise you won’t be disappointed! (Apologies in advanced for the low-quality pictures. I was in a rush because my two youngest swear they’ll die of starvation if they’re not fed right away.)
Hey guys! I wanted to take the time to reach out and let those who have subscribed and have been reading my posts know how grateful I am for you. Blogging/crafting/cooking are all little outlets of mine that I am passionate about and it’s exciting to me that others are reading along. I hope you all find something on here that you could relate to, that made you laugh, or is useful to you. This little giveaway is just another small extension of my gratitude, and the first of many!!
So, the time is now to announce who the winner is of my very first giveaway!
The winner is….
In my bio, I mention that I’ll be posting recipes, crafts, etc. and I haven’t posted much about crafting so I thought today I would! I recently purchased a Cricut Maker mainly because I love to make paper crafts, especially ones used for party decorating. Parties are so stressful, but making and putting up decorations for them has always been so much fun for me. My good friend’s daughter just had a Disney’s Coco themed birthday fiesta and I was lucky enough to help out a little bit with making it all cutesy!
Hey y’all! I’m totally feeling the midweek blues because I’m drowning in laundry and would much rather blog and make pretty birthday thangs than have to shuttle kids to and from school (ugly cry face). How great would it be if Friday came in the middle of the week and then we would still have Saturday and Sunday at the end? Kind of a mid-week break so we all feel like we have something to live for and can survive the rest of the week. Wishful thinking….
Anyways, lately I’ve been working on decorations for my baby’s 9th birthday party coming up in June. She is unicorn OBSESSED so naturally, she asked to have a unicorn themed birthday. I can’t wait to finish all the cute things I’m making so I can share with you all! Here’s a little sneak peak..
My brother and I only had each other, our cats, and my dad growing up. We do have a large family, but the majority of them are all spread across the US in different states so growing up I didn’t see them often. Once my dad passed away (rest in paradise daddy, love you forever), I felt like the only person I had left was my brother. It was really hard on the both of us. David on the other hand has a HUGE family, and they all see each other several times a month at the very least. If it’s not celebrating a special occasion, it’s simply to just get together to be around one another and enjoy each other’s company. It hasn’t always been easy; it’s hard not to feel out of place sometimes when you’re in a room full of people who know each other in and out and you are the oddball. This is all in just my own feelings, though, because his family is always gracious, loving, kind, and accepting. They’ve gone out of their way to make me feel like I am part of their family and it never goes unnoticed or unappreciated especially when I’m missing my dad.
Today, we were scheduled to celebrate David’s Yaya’s birthday and he has always been extremely close with her so he asked me to make something special for her as a gift. I love to make handmade things, but I get super nervous giving them away as gifts because I’m an annoying worry wart and assume right away that they’re gonna hate it. So when he asked me to make an important woman in his life a gift, I low-key panicked. What the heck was I gonna make for her that would be good enough for someone he holds so high? He threw some ideas at me, but my first thought was to make her a family tree since their family are all so close. I wasn’t sure how I was going to put it together, but I knew I wanted to make a family tree for sure. With the help of my trusty Cricut Maker, pretty paper, a blank canvas, and tons of glue later….voila!
I don’t know about your husbands/fiances/boyfriends but mine is the ultimate condiment king. He has to have some sort of sauce/condiment on everything he eats. He will go as far as not eating pizza if there’s no ranch (saywhat?) and put BBQ sauce on inappropriate things like spam fried rice (whyyyy). He is the sauce boss
David and I have been trying to make some lifestyle changes to lose weight before summer officially kicks in. He’s been super motivated, coming home from work to change and go straight to the gym. I get annoyed and want to do the spoiled
girlfriend fiancé (still not use to saying it) pout to convince him to stay home because I miss him, but I’m happy to see that he feels great and is really trying to stick with the changes he’s making. I, however, am also fully capable of going to the same gym (which is less than 5 minutes from our house), but every second of my every day is already taken up by other obligations, for the next 16 years. Well, I’m sure I could find an hour every once in a while..or every day..to go but I honestly just don’t care for gyms. I get grossed out by them and quite frankly, I’d rather sweat like a pig and look/sound/act like I’m dying an agonizing death all by myself in the comfort of my own home. There’s an endless amount of different videos for all kinds of workouts on YouTube. Click here for one that I like to do often, upping the reps. Waist/booty workouts are my favorite, even though I should be concentrating on ab/arm/back workouts because those are my trouble areas. I have a hard time finding videos with upper body workouts that I like to do, so if you have any good ones, drop ’em below for me and I’ll let you know how it goes.
I like to set everything out before I start measuring so I don’t end up running back and forth between my cupboards and counters.
