You Can Find Me Unpacking

We’ve moved! Phew. The U haul has been unpacked and we are officially in our new casa. I heart our new space and can’t wait to decorate, but there’s piles of boxes in the way. It’s a tad bit of a challenge moving and unpacking when you’re pregnant. At least I got out of all the heavy lifting, right? Our cute little home is going to be perfect for baby Lincoln’s arrival! Once the house is in order I’ll share a few pics of our space and give a full nursery tour. You can find me gabbing on Instagram in the meanwhile.

Wish me luck unpacking!

Captain American M&M Cake Recipe

I’m so excited to have teamed up with M&Ms® for the release of Captain America 2: Winter Solder! The husband and I are such big Avenger fans and of course we are fans of Mr. Captain America. Lucky for us we also happen to be sweets fans, wink. We shared a few laughs while brainstorming and creating this cake together. My guy isn’t normally a fan of being in the kitchen or baking as he prefers just to taste test. I suppose it was Captain America who got him in the kitchen on this one!

skinny girl popcorn display for ladies night

From time to time I’ve been known to get a little fancy. When it comes to entertaining guests, aka my favorite ladies, I make sure the snacks are proudly displayed. I’ve teamed up with one of my favorite companies to bring you a simple yet fancy display for ladies night!

I heart popcorn and could snack on it every afternoon. Who couldn’t? Low calorie snacking is always on my mind so when I was told Skinny Girl was coming out with new low calorie flavored popcorn options I was anxious to give it a try! I’ve shared a few Skinny Girl cocktail recipes you can find here, it’s no secret I’m a fan. 

Ladies night just got a little fancy. Grab the new snack details and fancy display details below! (You can go ahead and pin this image to save for future use).

Yarn and Pumpkin Fall Wreath DIY

Fall Wreath DIY

I’ve been waiting months to begin fall, Halloween and Christmas projects. It’s my favorite crafty time of the year! Inspiration is all around and it’s best to embrace it and not be bothered by things being “out too early”. It’s never too early to begin crafting, trying out new recipes or sip on a little pumpkin spice.

Recently I worked with yarn on this project and was thrilled with the results. To be honest I heart this yarn project a little more.  Living in Florida I don’t have a mantel, but can see this DIY wreath next to a collection of pumpkins, photo frames and a beautiful mirror. Those who have a mantel, get to work. Grab the crafty DIY details below!   Continue reading

Football Party Veggie Cups

Football easy veggie cups

Earlier this week we chatted about a boneless wings and dipping sauce station for football season and today I’m back at it with another easy football party snack! This seems to be the guys favorite time of the year and I’m just here for the food. To be honest I do enjoy watching some of the games with the husband and find that I’m more of a college fan than pro. Regardless, I cheer for whoever he wants to win or whoever helps his fantasy team at the time.

Simple and easy is how tailgating and homegating are done. Finger foods during the game are a must and these football party veggie cups are the perfect grab and go snack. You don’t need to mention to the guys that these bad boys are a healthier option, just roll with it.
