Get Along Lil' Bloggy!

Exciting news!  The Pioneer Woman has a tv show on Food Network!

I KNOW!  So exciting!  Her blog is so funny and her food is Uh-mazing!  She also has an obsessive love of her dogs, so I feel like we are BFF's already.

I know for sure I will be watching with envy while she whips up some awesome food in her awesome kitchen! If you haven't already head on over to her blog and do try her cinnamon rolls.  The best evar!!!!  You can also follow this link with some additional information on her show.

A batch of her cinnamon rolls I whipped up a while ago.  Delish!!!
I have also hear rumors that Reece Witherspoon is going to be playing her in a movie!!!! Gah!!!! Could it get any better!?!?!?!?  This was a while ago that this was circulation and I have yet to hear more about it, I would be sad if it never comes to fruition!

What an inspiration for bloggers everywhere.  Just goes to show, be true to yourself and share your passion with the world and who knows what it will bring!

Easy Peasy!

Just a quick post about something awesome!

If you are ever tired and in a hurry you need this!

This is one of my staple go to's on a night that I am too tired to try and don't want think about making anything.  Usually takes me around 20 minutes and it is sooooo good!!!!

They also have a frozen version which comes with the chicken in it.  Obviously more expensive.  I usually get the boxes on sale and with a coupon for around $3-$4.

Not bad for a super easy and yummy dinner option.

Best Run Evar!!!!

Well hello and Happy August!

This past weekend I participated in the Warrior Dash and it was awesome!!!

It is a 5K with tons of obstacles and crazy hard hills and trails of mud.  There was a group of us signed up and our heat wasn't until 2pm.  Thankfully it was not as hot as it has been.  But, I still came away with a little sunburn.  

This was the before shot.

Aaaaaaaand after...

 At the very end after jumping through fire, yes fire, there was a huge mud pit you had to crawl through since there was barbed wired 3 inches above so you couldn't stand.

Finally, I got what I was looking forward too, my huge turkey leg.

It was a great day!
