Just sending some Easter love on this amazing day!
Because it is my kids 1st Easter you get this:
For my Aunt because she loves frogs and I know she ALWAYS checks my blog ;-) Love you!
and for everyone else (because I LOVE glitter! ) :-)
While making some amazing taquito’s (recipe will be posted some time soon!). I needed to have shredded chicken and I have tried this before and MAN IT WORKS!!!
I have done this previously with full chicken breasts (but have no pictures) and here I did it again using chicken tenders and it works just the same with both!
Have an amazing Easter weekend everyone!
You know…because it is COLD today. I mean freezing rain and snow…come on! It is the middle of April!
This is a recipe I found that we really liked! So if you are looking for something warm on this chilly (spring) day here you go :-)
Loaded Baked Potato Soup
Last week like I thought was a pretty big fail on sticking to a menu, I think we rarely even ate an actual dinner at home, and if we were home we snacked!
MONDAY- Baked Creamy Chicken Taquito’s
TUESDAY- On my own (probably snacking or something quick while the kids are quiet or after they go to bed)
WEDNESDAY- Taco Meatloaf Cups
THURSDAY- On my own (probably snacking or something quick while the kids are quiet or after they go to bed)
SATURDAY – Leftovers
SUNDAY - Easter dinner at the In Laws (no cooking :-) )
Well we had a very eventful weekend and I am a bit tired today so I hope you all are a little more awake and motivated than me!
Yep I am excited…can you tell?!?! It is only 10 and it has been an amazing day!!
Of course it started off awesome because we woke up knowing today is Friday and I had an amazing night with my kids all on my own!!! It was such a great feeling! <3
Then we booked this amazing photographer this morning and I am soooooooooooo excited and anxious!!! For my Birthday I wanted to get the twins 6month professional pictures done, and a couple family photos because we don’t really have any AMAZING ones and…of course we NEED them! :-)
The awesomeness didn’t stop though! I opened my email to find out that I won a book!!! I was stoked! Then I found out what book and I was even more excited!! It is a fellow Nestie book, and can’t wait to get it! The book is Push Girl by the amazing Jessica Love!
This was me:
Then I was like this:
And I can’t wait to be like this:
You guessed it again I am so excited!!!
Anyway I hope all you followers are having as great of a day as I am!
Have an AMAZING weekend! <3
This is a very quick and delicious recipe that i found on Pinterest way back when and have made a couple times and every time it is as good as it was before! You can find it here and below is my take on it…you know the not so healthy way ;-) :
Tortilla chips (I don’t really measure them, I put as many as I find fit in the bottom of the dish)
1Tbs Olive Oil
1 medium onion chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning
1 can black beans drained
1 cup salsa
1 1/2 – 2 cups shredded cheese (I use taco blend and use as much as I see fit depending on my mood lol)
Who doesn’t like Tacos?? And an easy casserole?? Well here you go…dinner for a night sometime soon! :-)
I have realized that I have been finding some amazing things lately and have been playing around with the idea of posting about my awesome finds once a month to share the love with you! Who knows, maybe some of these will benefit you too! ;-)
Currently I am obsessed with the following:
LA Just Kissed Lip Gloss: Perfect somewhat neutral tint ( I know it doesn’t look like it but believe me it is!). I have been trying to find the perfect shade that can dim my bright red lips but not overpower them with a color too and this is perfect! AND I found it at the Dollar Tree…so you guessed it, it was ONLY $1!!
Orbit Apple Remix Gum: As most of you know I NEED to try a new flavored gum when it comes out and boy was I glad I did! This is such a light refreshing gum! You get the sweet flavor of an apple and it has pretty decent lasting time.
Brownie Brittle: I just found this at Walgreen’s (on clearance for $1.49) yesterday and OMG this is YUM YUM YUM!!! It is crispy like a cookie (which you know I LOVE!!) but it tasted JUST like a brownie! I was pleasantly surprised at how awesome this was! They have a couple different flavors but this toffee crunch one is really good!
Sweet Pea Necklace: Of course I don’t have a picture of the one I got but I ordered one from Groopdealz for $8.99 a couple weeks ago and I love it! I have a blue and pink pea in mine. The chain is a lot longer than I was expecting and the pea pod is a bit smaller than I thought it would be but I still love it! I wear it with love for my wonderful twins!
Well at the moment this is all of the cool awesome finds I have come across and love! Let me know if you guys like this and I can make it a monthly post ( I may do it anyway but some feedback would be nice ;-) ).
